::inspiring Mondays::


I woke up tired. It's cold. I cycled in a strong head wind. I had a frozen jaw until 10 in the morning. But… I decided I will share here a bit more of this business idea I keep hinting at (just not today), I had some pretty exciting news smiling at me from my inbox (I'll explain in detail later in the week) and I had an amazing hot shower followed by a delicious dinner. All in all, I win!

It has been a while since my last inspiring Mondays, early August if the scientist in me demands precision. Just over a month, a good month of summer and welcoming the changes ahead. A month of an unexpected (but oh so good!) blogging break. A month that didn't need inspiring Mondays. And while life is good (read above), I'm back to feeling a gentle need for a little Monday's blog posting hot chocolate.

:: Michael surprising me with the most beautiful 1920 Singer sewing machine.  the machine  Michael.
:: Little Brother is back from his holiday and our normal texting and emailing has resumed.
:: hot showers. again, hot showers.
:: cycling. it definitely brightens my day.
:: writing.
:: the excitement of having news to share 🙂
:: no rain on my cycle today. windy, yes, but dry.

How was your Monday? Exciting? I hope you are having a lovely start to the week!
