JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 197 :: puppies

8 Aug

Smile

I thought it would be kind to share cute puppy photos today. Why? Because these make me smile. And laugh out loud. Some are moments of pure chaos. Others are moments of pure bliss. Some are just a strange, crazy moment that we share with a Vizsla pup named Brady.

 

 

Did you smile?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 196 :: hello chitown

7 Aug

Finding kindness in the everyday.

Yesterday I had my favorite coffee:


Tonight I had my NEW favorite wine:

Both are just a reminder of what I often times forget — find JOY in the everyday. Whether it is coffee with a friend or a glass of wine with a co-worker.

Life is about joy people.
Remember that.
With kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

Spotting.

Speaking of kindness. I ran into this little guy twice today!

He seemed so serene and so unfazed that I was so close. Maybe he spotted me before I spotted him? Maybe that is the secret to being kind… knowing what’s coming and preparing for it.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 194 :: kind little lemons

5 Aug

Clean.

It’s funny, as I age, I actually enjoy doing the things I whined about when I was little. They seem like small, little, luxuries now: Going to bed early. Vacuuming. A clean bathroom.

And today, that’s what I did. I scrubbed and cleaned and couldn’t get marks off the bottom of my bathtub. Finally, I looked around the bathroom for a stronger cleaner and found something within reach: lemon essential oil.

I once tried to put this same lemon essential oil in my bath water. Which was a big mistake. It burnt my skin. I probably used too much in hindsight but as I looked at the bottle today I thought it might do the trick.

And, guess what…. it worked. So easy. (And smells so good.)

I have heard of the cleansing properties of lemon. I have heard of the healing properties too. So I looked up a few of them tonight:

Gotta love the lemons.

It seems so kind to clean with a natural source.
Thank you lemon for turning the smudge marks in my bathtub into lemon-aid.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 193 :: 4-letter word friday

4 Aug

Flow.

Today I ran into a few flowers. Or rather, flowed right by.


I do love flowers. The beauty. The colors. The moment they give me to pause.
They make me see more kindness in the world, and feel kinder too.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 191 :: coolness is kind

2 Aug

Lightness.

It’s a hot summer. And getting hotter by the day. While it is NOT as hot here in Washington as it was when we lived in Oregon (109 today! in Grants Pass) it still feels like one hot summer.

Which brings me to this — is there anything KINDER than a cool breeze on a hot day?

Here’s to kindness. In all of its many forms.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 190 :: a kind year

1 Aug

More Than Half Way.

WOW. It’s hard to believe it is August. We are more than half way through the year. We are more than halfway home for 2017.

It’s been a kind year so far. Including an engagement! A pop-up wedding! A train trip!

It’s also been full of some UNkindness too.
I wonder what else is in store for this year of kindness?

Here’s to kind thoughts.
Kind relationships.
And more kindness for all.
Every day counts.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

31 Jul

Day 3 on the train.

And just like that…. I am home. The trip is over. The adventure has led me back to where I began.

There are so many faces of the train.

  • The excited face.
  • The adventure has just begun face.
  • The amazing gawking look at that view face.
  • The sunset over the water wow face.
  • The coffee tastes so good in the morning face.
  • The I didn’t sleep a wink face.
  • The dinner on a train face.
  • The I can’t believe it’s almost over face.

So many faces. Here’s a few selfies from the road home.

So many moments.
So worth the adventure.
So kind in so many ways.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 188 :: rich beauty 

30 Jul

Day 2 on the train.

I love the train. I think it’s something that just gets in your blood. Tonight I had dinner with two older Australian gentlemen who are traveling the country visiting air shows. Last night I ran into the woman I boarded with originally in Chicago. She too had a layover  (trainover?) in Minneapolis and we found ourselves boarding the train again at the same time three days later.are

There’s so much that I love about the train. The people. The sights. The feeling of being slowly whisked across the country.  

And I really love the dining car.

The food is not a gourmet spread but it’s really not too bad. Better than any airplane food I have ever had. And, to be honest, probably better than my own culinary creations at home.

It’s been almost 24 hours on the train for me. My hair is getting a little bit greasy. My legs a bit tired. But the trip is still an adventure. The sights are still making me sigh with awe and disbelief. The beauty is breathtaking.  

It’s been a small gift of kindness to myself, to take the long way home. The slow train.

But so worth the richness and wonderment.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
