Cooling off!



No better way to begin a 40C day! Taken at 6.30am.. the reflections below are of the hibiscus bushes along the top edge of the garden. Especially refreshing after...


... 30 minutes on the treadmill, my dependable exercise buddy :) alternated with coffee, pastry and newspaper, life's too short to be obsessive right! I'd love to know how you start your day? Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  1. A good refreshing dip in the pool is always welcome- I tend to swim five or six times a week.

  2. Good for you, walking on the treadmill. If I had room for one I might do that too. I don't really have a serious morning routine. I do listen to National Public Radio to get me started with the day's world news.

  3. Your wonderful reflective shots are colorful and tres impressionistic! You excel yourself daily, G! Wouldn't you know: we just got a treadmill and are loving it. I'm remembering how it feels to feel GREAT with endurance for more joi de vivre! Love having you as my blog sistah!

  4. Nice to have a pool when the heat strikes! You seem very disciplined with your routine Grace! I have no exercise routine at all. I got an exercise bike for Christmas which the physiotherapist recommended as being good for my back, but I probably use it once a week...bad, very bad!

  5. Such a beautiful place to come awake! Especially on a hot summer's day. I crawl out of bed, fall on the floor, wait for some to put a cup of coffee in my hand, then slowly rise to my knees, drink the coffee, crawl back in bed and take a nap.

  6. loving that bottom reflection shot :) fantastic colors! we're still having cooler weather (in Florida), thank goodness, low humidity and coolness...it's perfect :) I live each year for this couple of months respite...before I'm boiling in my skin again. I guess I didn't try hard enough to get my son to move out to Arizona :)

  9. I get up at 6am to get Collin off to work. Then, most days I'm finally fully awake by noon.

  10. The water is a gorgeous blue and love the touches of colour reflected there. During the week it's just an early morning rush to work, but at weekends I usually go for morning walks and catch up on blogs I have not visited + more blogging of course.

  11. Looks like a cool place to hang out. Start my day with coffee and porridge with fruit and walnuts :)

  12. Just the right amount of ripple in the water and I am sure when you are on the treadmill, there is little wobble.

  13. Lovely! I start my morning with coffee & light breakfast, quiet time for reflection/prayer, then I hop on the internet and catch up with the news before going to work or taking a walk. I don't turn the TV on anymore in the morning -- and I love it!

  14. I get up and head out for a newspaper and then come back hand have tea and peanut butter on toast.

  15. It was -27˚C here this morning!!

  16. To swin at that time here would require breaking the ice.
    For that reason the last time I swam was 1985.
    Start the day by checking I am still alive before doing anything else.

  17. Well, I sometimes get up just after 04 in the morning to go to work.... Freezing cold outside, sometimes -13C.
    Last week I have been to Gran Canary and had a week with sunshine and +25C. Fantastic! I love your shiny blue water images and they made me feel this week I just had.
    Happy weekend to you and yours.

  19. Hi Grace - Just like George Clooney I hit the button on my little red Nespresso and butter up a flakey croissant then I reach for my ipad to check out what's been happening around the world while I've been sleeping!!

  24. Usually by trying not to be all too late for that thing called work... Nothing as enticing as this turquoise!
