Dear Lilie,
This is a magnificent sailboat!!

After all this exercise I am hungry. Now I have to make dinner and I found another thing that is really good for us. It will prevent all kinds of illnesses and it makes our food taste so good.

Dear Lilie,
What a day of intense exercise.
Should be no problem to go to sleep; however, if you ever suffer from insomnia, put some springs of Lavender in a sachet bag on and under your pillow. It really relaxes you into a rejuvenating state of sleep!

Good morning,
What a beautiful illustration.

I keep lavender under my pillow all the time.
I have some growing in the garden and I dry bunches of it to last me through the winter.

Now after a good night's sleep I had some fresh fruit and organic cereal...time for this

I see I have missed quite a number of great exercises here. Oh, how I loved my bike! But Rome is not really bike-friendly, even if there are a few kilometers of special parcours ... There is still great heat, so all exercise brings immediate fatigue!
After swimming in the Mediterranean sea, after watching the sunsets and the stars, after a few days without ice-cream, today I have had a big one .... well I forgive myself!
I have played with my cat Zelda, which is always great exercise because of the continuous bending down to take the little balls and throw them again, walking from one end to the other of the corridor ... I don't know how she manages to be so active in these days with all her thick fur? Anyway it's good for both of us.

Pets btw seem to have a major role in keeping us healthy and young. I am sure this is true.

Love to all of you. Margherita Smile

Dear Margherita,
I am instantly rejuvenated just looking at that beautiful cat.

I must admit, with the excuse that it is the weekend I barely got through my yoga.
Then I had a croissant with butter and coffee with cream Red Face

Now that lovely cat has made me feel sleepy.
Good night.
Tomorrow is another day.

Today is Sunday, so I'm going to be a bit lazy.
I'll fiddle with my plants, trim them, feed them and just simply enjoy looking at them.

Everyone should keep some plants, either on a window sill, a balcony or a garden. It is restful and soothing to work with plants.
Always keep some flowers in your home and if possible at your workplace. One single flower will do. If you haven't got a vase, a colorful or interestingly shaped pop bottle will do.

Dear Lilie,
This is a very soothing arrangement of plants,
and a lovely, I think, Lladro figurine.
So restful.

I have a small city garden, but it has as many flowers as I can pack into it, and I love working in it

I need plants and flowers in the office. At my desk I am practically embraced by a wonderful immense Kentia palmae like this one (mine is bigger!). People coming in sometimes find that I am working in the jungle! haha. I have some smaller plants too. And yes you guessed it, I talk to my plants.
Wonderful silent presences!
Love, Margherita Smile

Mother and Child by Mary Cassat

And for my further wellbeing in the office I have some beautiful pictures/prints hanging on the walls. Sarah, my daughter brought this poster back when she was in Paris and visited the Louvre. I framed it and it is wonderful.

.... it makes me feel the nearness with my daughter.

Love, Margherita Smile
Thank you for sharing Margherita,
What a love filled poster.

I also have many paintings and prints as well as photographs on my walls at home and in the office, and we always have flowers in the office.
We also have devoted one wall in our private sitting area for poetry, most of Eric's poems are hanging there as well as some of yours and Tim Cannon's.

Love, Inda

I don't own the original Monet...hahaha,
just the print

Good morning everyone.
I hope you are doing your exercises.

I am enjoying your plant and poster pictures.
I also love to work in the garden and keep flowers in my house and at work.

Keep up the exercises. I will check up on you later.

My goodness, this exercise has been so tough.
Time to take it easy for a bit.

If you have a chance to get to salty ocean water this is very relaxing to the nervous system. It is good for your skin, and it enhances sleep. After all those gruelling exercises I think that we need a bit of this:

Sauna is considered a very healthy treatment ... you must know it dear Lilie .... but right now here we are in a permanent sauna, without any possibility to run in the snow afterwards, without any refrigerium ..... I think I am dissolving.
No possibility at all to do whatever exercises in this heat. Every movement seems too much .... no energy is left. I only dream of rain to cool the air ....

Longing for raindrops ...

Love, Margherita
Oh, yes I know saunas, but am not a sauna friend myself...heat is dissolving all energy I have...and I loose all alertness...

I love those images...amazing observing my reactions when seeing them...the feeling of coolness and that of fresh rain...

I would not say no to this...
