And not necessarily in that order!
There is something about the end of summer that makes us want to get our house in order, literally and figuratively.
I recently redid my office layout, because I was facing a corner. If I turned left, I could also see the trees, but it was always disconcerting when someone walked into my office!
In Feng Shui, our office desks are supposed to be situated so that we are facing the door. Our spaces should be clear of clutter as well, since that is supposed to help the energy flow. My desk was cluttered and even had my black beast of a printer on it, so I was always struggling for a spot to set out my papers.
I love how I've rearranged everything and I can tell you it is pure bliss to work in here now!
|Love that early morning sun!|
|And a bouquet of fresh flowers, along with other plants, makes the space|
|I added a small bookcase in here for my everyday writing books|
|Now when I sit here, this is what I see...|
|A clear space is a thing of beauty...|
I am also in the throes of preparing for my trip to Paris. Wait, that's not entirely true. I haven't thought a whit about the trip yet (except for reservations made months ago), but I have been obsessed with my feet.
I love to walk. But my poor flat feet are wretched walkers, and many the trip has been marred by not wearing the correct footwear.
I am taking 3 pairs of shoes on the trip: a pair of walking sandals, a pair of ballet flats, and a pair of flat boots for late evenings and in case the weather is colder up in Belgium.
The challenge with walking shoes is that they tend to be butt ugly. My search took me all over the city for the flat boots, since I already owned the first two items. No way was I ordering online - the Canadian dollar is wretched and returns are a pain!
My footwear on the trip?
Taos walking sandals. So comfortable!
Naturalizer N5 ballet flats. Again - you feel like you are wearing slippers.
Naturalizer cycle N5 low black boots. These are really comfy and I would wear these with a couple of knit midi dresses in addition to pants.
Now that I have my feet sorted out, everything else is gravy.
How about you? How are your feet holding up these days? Anyone else use Feng Shui in their home?
