Day 90 of Project 2015

A niece’s birthday, a farewell dinner for a primary school friend is how we spent today. David went to work somewhere in between there 😉

Only two more days left in the office for him before we have 2 weeks off! YAY!

We read in a Paulo Coelho book about a story where this over 60-year-old woman was organising parties all the time – when asked how she had the energy, she said that everyday there was something to celebrate. She has a “magic calendar” where it has dates of past events that are worth celebrating. What a fantastic idea!

So every day, we are waking up and finding out what was important for THAT day.

Today?? It was that in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was officially opened.

Summary of March 31


Trying out a new restaurant today as we farewelled a friend Le has known for many years. 

Brighter/Different Perspective?

The more we read, the more we can explore ways that we can enrich our own lives. That we can embrace what is around us. That we can enhance our minds and knowledge. That we can engage with the world.  We keep loving life every day because there isn’t anything NOT to like about it.

    Which Paulo Coelho book did you read? Did you like it? (I keep coming across his name lately. I think I’m supposed to be paying attention 🙂 )


    • David loves Paulo Coelho… the book we got this story from was called “Like the Flowing River.” David has read several and enjoyed pretty much all of them. It was The Pilgrimage that really got us seriously thinking about doing the Camino ourselves.

        I’ll check it out, thanks. I posted one of his quotes on Facebook a week or so ago that I really liked – “One day, you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” Wise words!
