Hello, weekenders,

How was your week? Mine was both busy and mellow. The spring stuck somewhere and rainy days ain’t helping the mood.

I work from home so for me spending weekends outside of the house is crucial. But sometimes with all the rush, I simply want to stay at home, cuddle on the sofa with a glass of wine and a good movie. This helps my body and mind rest, calm down and reenergize.

Social Media are filled with the beautiful lifestyles nowadays. Somehow we started picturing that this is what life should look like. But it is not. We all are different. Our mood changes every day, so does the mind and body. Don’t let social media to oppress and fool you. Do what your mind and body are asking at the moment. If it is staying at home, then stay. If it is to call someone and have half a day conversation, then do this as well. Maybe cuddle with the book you always wanted to read. Or spend the whole day doing your hobby. And If you feel like going out, then put on some cloth and get out.

That is why I created the Weekend Planner where I share my real life. Whether it is fancy, or smart, or staying in your PJs all day over the weekend, I share everything.

So this weekend was very simple, yet calm and relaxed. Past Sunday was an Orthodox Easter that we celebrate. I baked the traditional Paska (sweet bread), colored eggs and made a nice dinner to celebrate Easter. We went for a walk, had a long talk with the family, had dinner with very delicious wine and watched Ukrainian comedy show. It was a beautiful day.

Next day we did some spring house cleaning, which all my body and mind protested 🤨😏. But after everything was done, the house looked refreshed and cleaned. This made my mind calm and free of clutter.

By the end of the day, we were so tired that decided to stay at home. We opened one more wine bottle and watched The Lincoln Lawyer. My husband enjoyed this movie more than I did, but I liked it too. Matthew McConaughey as always is great in this movie. I like this actor and have a couple of my all-time favorite movies with him.

This is pretty much all that happened during our weekend. Even though we didn’t do anything special, but I feel calm, relaxed and centered now.

Such weekend reminds me how quiet days are as important as spending outside time. Never fear to let your mind and body rest at home. In the end, home is where our energy is. Bringing some quietness and stillness is essential.

As always below are some of my offerings to go through the weekend.
