Home is Where The Heart Is

Hope you are all doing well. Self Issolation and staying home can be very tough and difficult for many people. During this challenging time, I’ve tried to keep my self and my family calm and creative. I’ve been following a routine but I also allow my self to go with the flow.

I used Chalk Pastels. I call this
The Flow Of The Morning

In the mornings I wake up and have my coffee followed by my breakfast. I take my vitamins and then make the girls breakfast. Sometimes they make it themselves. Sometimes it’s toast, sometimes cereal and on special occasions it’s pancakes or waffles. That first sip of coffee is amazing!

During this #StayHome time I feel that I’ve learned a lot about GRATITUDE. I talk a lot about being grateful on my blog. Now more than ever being truly grateful is so much more than a word. I’m so grateful for our healthcare and the people who go out there and work for each day. I’m so grateful to the people who deliver foods and goods to people at home. I’m so grateful that we can buy groceries and get our medicine from he pharmacies. This is a huge deal! We are so blessed to be Canadian. I’m grateful for our healthcare, the doctors and nurses that put their life out there and take care of others. A very big thank you. G R A T E F U L for everything you do.

I’ve been vlogging but not as much as I would like to. I’ve been work with my girls and their homework. Following the homework I do my exercize for the day. I’ve been following the 30 Day Yoga challenge. I’m now on day 3. I am keeping a fitness journal and I’m documenting my experience which I hope to share with you in the coming months.

Easter was different this year. But we made the best of it. The girls painted their eggs and did their Easter egg hunt. It was nice and we are so grateful that we can still do these things. I’m so grateful for having space and a backyard. So grateful for everything we DO have. G R A T I T U D E.

My girls are enjoying their time at home. They do homework, artwork, they go outside in the back and stay active. They play their games and toys and digital gadgets. They watch their movies and have fun. They are happy and healthy. I’m so blessed and again G R A T E F U L.

I asked my daughters to choose a recipe and make something. We had a lot of carrots 🥕 so they made delicious carrot muffins. They used Ricardo’s Carrot Muffin Recipe. HERE

Baking and cooking is such an important part of our home. My husband made macarons for the first time and I couldn’t be more proud of him. They were delicious! The filling was a lemon meringue.

I truly hope you are all well. I hope you are doing things you love. I hope you are enjoying reading, writing, cooking and staying calm. This too shall pass and one day we will look back at this time and see how strong were were as a community. I would love to know how you are all feeling. Stay strong, stay healthy and be safe!

  1. I am loving it! It helps my body so much. I’ve been doing every other day instead of everyday because of body pain. lol I love it so much. I’m so happy to hear you’ve been doing yoga for a few years. I can’t wait to write about my journey. I’ve been journaling everyday. It makes me feel so alive. Have a beautiful week Jodi. Thank you.
