{this moment} - and the weekly {Smile-Up}

. . . . . . . . . . 
"There are no ordinary moments." ~Way of the Peaceful Warrior

{this moment} - a Friday ritual. A photo (or few) capturing moments from the week. Simple, special, extraordinary moments. Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.
Served up with the weekly {Smile-Up} - gratitude practices to love and appreciate your life. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' and 'smile up' in the comments for all to find and see.

{this moment}

{Smile Up}:

Day off with the hubby :)… 
Exploring new hiking spots nearby
Sitting on sketchy bridges above a creek, talking about life
(Accidental) Mushroom picking for the first time!  
Making the best cream sauce with (said) lobster mushrooms for supper!
Dancing and taking in the rain
Laying on the lawn while watching the moon and clouds (all the above in that lovely day off ^_^)
My Wacom Cintiq arriving (early!)!!! And getting to draw and play with it eeeeeee love it so much! ^_^
Writing my third book while soaking up the last bit of summer sun on the lawn.
Getting outside as much as possible when the sun has been out (we're in for a lot of rain) 
Relaxing with the hubby at Ainsworth Hotsprings, watching the full moon. 
Seeing Customer photos of them sporting ReLove & Alter-Eco goods ^_^
Tea Dates (as always, duh! ;))   
Accomplishing my "to-do" list 
Getting pounds and pounds of tomatoes (from our garden) to freeze for the winter (yay!)    
Brunch with my sister and brother :)
Kitty cuddles while drawing on my cintiq in my underwear in the mornings (joys of being self-employed) ;)
Making the most epic chili with more lobster mushrooms (been a good week for food ^_^)

Interests for the week:
Reading: "The Complete Natural Medicine Guide to Women's Health" (every woman needs to own and read this book!!)
✯  Current Anime shows: Guilty Crown! I just discovered the D. Gray Man "Abridged" series on youtube… omg I couldn't stop laughing. Anyone who has watched the show will (hopefully) find it hilarious. Good laughs!

Music Playlist: The Birthday Massacre. In This Moment. Poets of the Fall. Evanescence. Dream Theater (Octavarium). Marilyn Manson.  
Food Faves: Lobster Mushrooms Vegan Chili Chocolate Smoothies Pasta Squash and Garlic from Garlic Fest ♥ 

Lessons of the week: 
Women's bodies are sooooo complex! So much learning to do and things you can do to regain balance in our physical and mental bodies. Speak only words of kindness about others--when we speak negatively about someone, they can feel it across the strands of the Universe. Patience. Respect yourself to say "no" when you don't want to do something. Respect yourself in general. Wanting time for yourself shouldn't make you feel badly or guilty! Stop procrastinating! Remember everyone is going through something!

Hope you're all having a beautiful wonderful blissful week! Hope you enjoyed your last day of summer and are welcoming fall with an open mind and heart!  
What are you grateful for this week? :)

Tell me about your lovely weeks! Tell me about your 'Smile Up' and 'this moment!' :) Pretty please!
