My Weekly Wants

Guilty! Guilty! Oh' judge me...sue me!..Blogging on an early Monday morning when the whole country is out at work'...hah!...laaaazy Luxie hee! hee!...juuuust completely taking it easy with a mug of steaming KDO coffee ( toooo lazy to brew ), a platter of "puto" ( rice cake) beside aiiind' my latest bought Bossa Nova chill wafting throughout my homey'...Ahhhhh'....this is Luxie life!...Yeah'...Not to worry'....Not to worry ( Sweeny Todd tune) I'll get into the thick of everything that needs to be done...laaater ;>

Let me just recall the blissful last week I had...Oh' just pretty glorious...Walks through the park...browsing in bookshops until I finally...finally...finally (!!!) found the much coveted Eat, Pray and Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Whoooheee!!!....felt like I hit the jackpot on that one...Two left on the shelf and I couldn't let it slip my hands...wonderful super delightful read!

Oh' truly if days could be stringed like leis then last week was a necklace of roses...To cap it off Hubzzy' woke me up early Sunday for a spur of the moment drive to Bag of Beans in Tagaytay'....Wow'..wasn't it only a couple of weeks ago I was there with the girls?. He wanted to try the Shepherds pie and I was ecstatic to have a piece of steak and mushroom myself'....plus a breath of sweet mountain air would do the boys good so off we went...an hours drive for fresh bread and pies...

That darling week is a golden memory now..and facing me actually is a list ( long) of stuff to do...enough to make my hair balloon'.....Oh' yes, from the mundane to the routine to the heavy...And the things on my mind are still on my mind...but with freshness and clarity and a dash of "knowing"....


This week I want to find more magic'..I want something beautiful and exciting and meaningful to happen to me...I want peace and understanding and courage and just a barbeque of smiles to complete every moment. It' so easy to worry'.....It's so easy to just..fret...and panic...and just lose your cool when things seem to not go the way I expect them to...But I know that I have a choice in everything...and I choose...I choose to make this week just.... inspiring.

An inspiring week to you as well!

I can just hear your Bossa and smell the coffee, Luxie! I read Eat, Pray, Love not long ago...I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on it when you finish. And I do think something magical will happen this week! Lovely photo of you!

Well, I'd go with the steak. But if you're thinking of shepherd's pie, then another Sweeney Todd song comes to mind ("here we have some shepherd's pie peppered with actual shepherds on top").

Enjoy the coffee and th lazy Monday morning. You won't get many of them for awhile.

I hope you found more magic and had a barbeque of smiles this week, Luxie! May all your days be stringed like leis into necklaces of roses ...
