Haiku My Heart–Everyday is day one.


The smiles mark the days

I take Good Care of my Self.

Day One, everyday.


Seems kind of childish, like getting a gold star for behaving in class.

But watching the calendar fill up with happy faces, and having to pass by it every day, multiple times a day, as the calendar is right by the computer, will be motivating I think.

Used to help with my first graders so why not with little old me ?

As you can see by the calendar, we are headed to Maine next week.

We will be staying in a nicely equipped camper at a campsite just down the road from the beach.

Cooler temps. and quieter beaches await us,

and that is just fine with me.

The ocean, art supplies, books on the Nook, cozy sleeping bags for two, my pooch

and my Man…

Sounds like a perfect vacation to me !

Thanks in advance to my friend Colleen-y, who will be taking care of the kitties at home.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Remember to take some down time for yourself. That’s what it is all about, right ?

Big Love !


Haiku My Heart Fridays are hosted by the remarkable and beautiful Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon.

oh lucky you....a camping trip in maine....with your lover...well it sounds magical.

will you build a campfire just for me and then roast some marshmallows and get them all over your fingers while you try to get them onto a bed of chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers and then take a picture of that deliciousness for me ?

or a sunset. whichever is easiest :)

Leslie said...

have a lovely maine idyll, and i'll bet that calendar will just be filled with happy faces when you get back!

Cynthia Eloise said...

Fallingladies said...

Wonderful idea about the happy faces on the calendar, I need to be better to myself, maybe I'll try that. I'm jealous of your trip to maine, and I so wish I could get to see your pages in the sisterhood sketchbook in person, I love the green pages you did in Jaine's sketchbook, they're just perfect!!

Fallingladies said...

oh, also just mailed the next sketchbook, hope you get it in a day or two.

Noelle Renee said...

I have never been to Maine either but I think it is blueberry and cranberry country and I believe that Robert Frost lived there as well so you should have a fabulous time. Enjoy a great vacation well-deserved!

Margaret Pangert said...

The smiley faces are wonderful motivators, Kim! I'm going to have to try it! I'd love to go to the barn raising! and also to Maine, come to think of it... Your life is full of wonderful things!

gemma said...

Stars and happy faces work for me too!

Kate said...

Have a great time. Maine is one of those states that I would love to visit someday. Enjoy it for me,

patti said...

Don't forget to get those toes wet and build a sandcastle with a smiley face!! :)
