Finding Joy in Everyday #29

Hi All!

Well, as you might have guessed, I didn’t make the laundry soap from my feature last week.  I fully intended to but then I got sick and I still am :(  I didn’t increase my garlic early enough.  Note to self: increase garlic October 1 each year

A while back, I got tickets for us to attend the American Royal horse show for this past Saturday evening.  It was the Hunter/Jumper show.  I thought Nadia needed some fun in between all the doctor appointments and feeling pretty lousy most days.  So anyway, we get there and it was fun to watch the beautiful horses, but we left after the first round.  We both felt yucky…..go figure!

So even though we have both felt lousy all week it has been pretty quiet and calm, which we both were in need of.  And it is nice to be home (house/dog sitting all last week) cause in two weeks we’re off to do it again :)


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. – Galatians 5:17-23


Featured Post from #JoyHopeLive last week

My feature this week is How Yoga Changed My Life: The 8 Limbs of Yoga by Reviews, Chews & How-Tos.  Even though I have done yoga for a long time I never actually studied it.  Definitely didn’t know what the essence of yoga was or that it even had one.  This is a great post to learn what yoga is all about.

I have always enjoyed yoga, not that I’ve done it much in my life but when I have I really enjoyed it.  It is very relaxing to me.

Before reading this post I had been thinking it would be good for Nadia and I to make time in our week to fit some yoga in.  I think it would be very good for Nadia.  It is a non-strenuous activity she can do during this time of illness and she will still be getting some exercise.

Reading Vanessa’s post makes me want to make this part of our weekly routine all that much more now!

Now, on to the
