Good Morning, Monday! Guten Morgen, Montag! Buongiorno, Lunedi!
Terrace View

View From a Restaurant Terrace - prices are high, but the view is worth it!


As we begin our second week in Sils, Switzerland, we have discovered that seeing everything on this trip, our second, is impossible. We hike or bike to one town and find trails to others, snaking out across the Engadin Region through mountains, valleys, and charming towns. The Italian tourists, who fill the area in August, are headed home to start their autumn, so this should be a quieter week. On Saturday we dodged tour groups, bikes, hikers, and horse-drawn carriages in a manner that felt more like being in a live video game than anything.

Funny…when we travel we get tired of seeing art and ruins, but I never tire of seeing another mountain or glacier. My husband, Henry, is already planning next year’s return!

I want to welcome visiting bloggers who are participating in the Platform-Building Challenge. I’m excited about making new friends and getting to know your blogs better! I’m impressed with the quality of writing I’ve seen.

For those new to A Woman’s Nest, here’s how I do things: on Mondays I preview the week, offering a few reflections along the way.

Tuesdays are days for book and DVD reviews that may be of interest to women at midlife. This week, I will review Meditation Secrets for Women by Camille Maurine. Since this month’s focus is on finding stillness and relaxation, I thought this book would be a great way to launch the new month.

By the way, in a curious synchronicity, is promoting a free telesummit that fits in well with our September topic, so I want to pass along the info. If you’re interested, click on the Divine Feminine Yoga Telesummit link to get information. If you can’t listen to the telesummit live, you can listen to recordings later at your leisure. Some great teachers are contributing, and I’m sure they’ll be sharing info similar to what I’ll be sharing this month.

Wednesdays are for feature posts based on the monthly topic. I’ll start by offering tips on what to do when we struggle with doubt and discouragement as we pursue our dreams. Thursdays, I recommend a blog that I’ve run across during the week. I didn’t used to post on Friday, but will offer fun stuff then, including my own fiction within the next month or so.
