Topics of Interest

It’s only Thursday, but for my post time-change-over-the-weekend brain, it feels like it should be a Saturday or June for that matter. Nevertheless, my day is filled with meetings. To the point that sitting still during a video call with a poker face is becoming more and more challenging. As I find my mind drifting off to the winding and narrow back streets of Cannes. Yes the one in France. That’s where I am inside my head, while perched on a ergonomic chair, looking at the camera. Why Cannes, I don’t know. But 20 minutes into a meeting, and I am whisked away to those streets. When the meetings are done, I walk from my desk to my bed and lay there for a second or two in an effort to clear my head or plan dinner. That is until someone pings me for attention… So in case you feel the need to escape from all things mundane, read on. For the love of Downtown Abbey, you’ll be glad to know the sequel A New …

What Are Your Plans This Weekend

This week seemed extra long for some reason, but I am glad that today is Friday and the planning for the weekend is in full force – chase sun, leave town. The same goal, but different places. I think a drive to Sonoma on Saturday is in order again – in search of a new trail and Sunday, perhaps the sun will force its way through the fog and we can walk through Golden Gate Park.  We’ll see. In the meantime, I found a few interesting finds online which naturally I feel the need to share and a few films – worth snuggling up on the sofa with a bottle of wine and pop corn – my favorite combination and simply allow your mind to escape. what are you doing this weekend? {featured image source and full credit}

Lifestyle: Latest How To Guides I Found Online and My Recent Film Recommends

Over cocktails with friends from out of town, we embarked on several conversations, which I always wish I could simply jot down during the event, so that I could remember the topics as well as share some eye-opening views, which naturally add to my outlook, and get me thinking whether my approach is better than theirs or they truly have valid arguments. I love how invigorating the discussions are, which this time around where based on the following topics. The everyday anxiety of new parents, something I got a glimpse of during my last trip to England, where I spent a few days with a now stay-at-home co-worker, dealing around the clock with a one year old. If I were able to, would I learn a new skill? Was a question that came up during out talks about the need to change careers, or the love or hate of our jobs, as well as why is it that we tend to settle for a job to make a living rather than take on a career …

Five Things That Grabbed My Attention This Morning

As I ‘mature’ I realize I’m developing a sense of calmness when dealing with everyday life. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do need to vent here and there, well mostly after enduring a situation for a long period of time, I need to let it all out, but not as emotionally as I used to. I realize as I type this, that with maturity, there will also come a time, where I see myself not even venting anymore. Instead, simply shaking my heading and carrying on. Until then, I am simply sharing a few things that have grabbed my attention this morning and wanted to know your take on them.

Weekend Recap and A Few Interesting Topics

Well, as usual or expected the heavy or dense fog is back in San Francisco and the kick off to the normal summer has begun, where the locals dress in winter clothes and the tourists show up in shorts and summer attire and hardly a jacket. So, while vegging out on Sunday at home, reading, then preparing meals for the week, I naturally thumbed through my phone here and there and found these topics interesting enough to share. But first a question: Do any of you dabble in photography? If so, how do you save your pictures? {featured image source}

Sunday Edition: Topics Of Interest From Around The World

I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, in terms of this bug/flu thing I managed to get caught up in this past week – the entire event being kicked off by a stiff neck,  followed by an achy body, fever, headache and a huge knot in my throat, or more like a piece of rock lodged in the worst possible way, causing all kinds of havoc on my body and soul. Since I am so aware of my health, I noticed this time around, I had the worst stomach pains also – which got me thinking perhaps this was a combo flu – or a virus that was thoughtful enough to attack all of my organs. Anyway, the way I know I am feeling better is that I wanted to actually get on my phone and dabble in paint-by-number app, and then one thing led to the next and here we are – with a list of interesting topics I want to share with all of you – cooped up …
