7th Day in a Chic September
For the month of September I plan to document daily steps I have taken towards a chic, elegant and healthy life. My goal is to keep uppermost in my mind the kind of life I want to live. I will be focusing on all the small things I do each day that lead me towards my goal, rather than away from it.
Here are today’s mini-chic accomplishments:
Had such a lovely day at home today. I pottered and cleaned, decluttered and cooked. Whilst hanging out the washing I said hello to little Atlas J. Poodle, via the small bald patch on the lawn. He was such a good boy and I miss him so much. Life goes on though and it doesn’t pay to think about his silver curls or I’ll get teary.
Pottered, sorted out and decluttered. I made a delivery of donated items to the local op shop – it’s one of those old-fashioned ones which are so rare these days, the ones where nothing has a price and the elderly lady behind the counter looks at the two items you are holding and says ‘oh, $1.50 if that’s alright love’. That’s the kind of place I like to take my donations to.
Had an at-home facial before my shower (which may or may not have been lunch-time).
Read Cupcake Caramel’s recent post. It is so good. I especially like the last few paragraphs. Rebekah, please know I am unable to comment on your blog, Lord knows I’ve tried.
Made dinner from fresh ingredients as well as using up items from the fridge and freezer. Last bits in jars were emptied. And it was delicious; my man raved. At the merest hint of moving one gets the urge to empty the pantry.
If you feel like you want to make September a chic month for you as well, please join me. You are welcome to share your mini-chic accomplishments for the day (or the previous day if you read in the morning) in the comments section. It would be lovely to have you along for the ride!
