Tuesday: SOLC - 23.4.13

Writing a slice of my life today.
In my part of the world it is school holidays.  I've taken up a few challenges to do while I'm taking a restful break from the day to day life of teaching.  I'm actually exhausted.  Hubby and I went away this weekend and celebrated our grandson's 3rd birthday.  I had the most glorious time.  Relaxing with my family brings about a time of refreshing and soaking in their presence.  I actually did a bit of retail therapy as well: I bought myself the cutest dark pink warm jacket, 2 pairs of jeans, leopard print cardigan, peplum top, one pair of black boots, black shoes, and a scarf.  Most of the items I got were on sale.  My favourite time to shop is when their are loads of sales on.  Glorious!  

I want to savour every moment of my school holidays so I've decided to take up 4 different types of challenges.  30 days of spiritual energising.  30 days of house cleaning.  30 days of photo challenges.  30 days of fitness (4 minutes a day).  The trick is I will probably double up or triple up the challenges.  One of my challenges is to write how I became a Christian so I decided to write down some random thoughts about how I became a Christian then I combined the photo challenge with the Christian challenge as well.  The photograph is a picture of a grapevine in my backyard.  The grapevine as significant meaning for me as a Christian so I thought went well with the photo challenge.  I nearly did myself in today went I did a 4 minute workout.  I have really let my fitness go and was huffing and puffing like the big bad woof.  The only thing that blew over, was me as I was bent over, with my hands on my knees, gasping for breath.  I'm not sure if I can keep up all the challenges but I have thoroughly enjoyed my day of house cleaning (blah), exercising (not), photo and Christian challenge combined.
