Guaranteed to Make You Smile: LiaBug !!

How's this for a cutie?

This is darling Lia, granddaughter of Cathy over at The Voice Within.

Lia is modelling the LadyBug hat I made for her in the photo above. It's a bit big right now; Lia isn't quite a year old and hat is sized for 1-3 year olds. But I think she looks sooooooooooooooo cute, even the way it fits right now.

Stop by Cathy's blog for the link to the pattern page at Etsy too. I made a few adjustments but basically used the pattern.

I'm still limiting my time online due to my recent eye injury. My eye is almost back to normal, was a week ago that it happened, yesterday. Made me appreciate once again, how precious the miracle of sight is.

Have a Wonderful Weekend! :<)

The Miracle of Sight

I'm taking a few days off from the computer, for the most part.

I managed to jab one of my eyes with a fingernail on Friday morning. My eye is healing but it's still quite red. A very upsetting experience.

I'm trying not to do too much with my eyes for now. Such a weird little accident to happen. I've never done anything like this before. It's made me appreciate in a significant way, the miracle of sight. And how we usually take it for granted, at least I have.

Have a great week.

Yoga for Healing

I recently got back to practising hatha yoga on a regular basis. I am SO glad that I have and for so many reasons.

 I'm now up to 4 sessions a week. I plan to add a creative visualization component to each session in the near future; just waiting for some CD's to arrive for this. I'll be reviewing at least one of these CD's over at My Real Life Reviews too, after I've had a chance to test them out.

I found this wonderful and detailed article about the many benefits of yoga over at recently. The benefits of yoga seem to be limitless.

Personally, after re-starting my yoga poses a few months ago, I've already noted some wonderful and significant results: I sleep better, have better balance and flexibility, an issue with one of my ankles that flares up is getting better, my skin looks smoother....the list goes on and on.

Do you practise yoga? What are some of the benefits you've noted?

It's not surprising that yoga is as popular as it is!

Finally... Some Sunshine!

After a long and very dreary winter and early spring we are finally having some beautiful, sunny days; here in Interior BC.

Joe and I spent part of yesterday down by the lake. It was wonderful to feel the rays of sun and warmth on my face.

I don't think anything says sunny and bright quite like Brown-eyed Susan daisies so I thought I'd share this photo today.

Have a Wonderful Week  :<)

Back to Lumosity and Loving It!



I wrote this review of Lumosity (brain-training) program, last year at My Real Life Reviews.

In spite of really enjoying the program, I did let my regular sessions lapse along the way.

In the past month, I signed up for a one year membership at Lumosity and I'm so glad I did.

It was interesting to see the back-sliding I had (not too bad but still significant) getting back to the brain exercises there. My previous scores/history were still available to compare. I'm back to progressing now and my scores are happily going up again.

If you've never checked out Lumosity before, it's definitely worth a try. They have free trial (with no obligation or annoying spam!) before you commit to anything. I always appreciate that. And millions of users from around the world in all age groups too.

Brain-training can be fun. :<) 

Let me know if you've given Lumosity a try. I'd love to hear what you think!
