Heat wave


Man! It’s HOTTTT! It has been unbelievably hot these past few days. All you want to do is make like a crocodile and just lounge around like they do all day with their mouth open so they don’t overheat.

On days like these go head out for a swim. Drove by my local pool today and the parking lot was full to the brim. Everyone and their aunt Mary was out today trying to cool down and what better way to do so than to fully submerge yourself in a pool of unheated water.

Cat nap

Cat nap


There is nothing quite like taking and afternoon nap. Getting away from it all for 20 minutes – half an hour, finding a nice place to lay your head and zone out for a bit. If its the weekend, I like to find the sunniest place in the house which is often times my couch. I find a nice spot to snuggle up and get some vitamin D while I dose off. I have no idea why I enjoy sleeping in the sun so much but I prefer it to closing the curtains and sleeping in darkness. Even at night, I prefer to keep the curtains drawn. I guess it’s because I somehow feel connected to my surroundings or something.

Splurge!


Life isn’t all about work. Sometimes we need to splurge a little on ourselves and enjoy the finer things in life. That’s just what I did recently when I decided to rent out a Loft for the long weekend. This place was beautiful and immaculate. The owner told me it was cleaned by a local Montreal cleaning company that they just recently started using.

Summer’s Here!!!


Summer’s here and even your dog is excited about it. Granted people start to embrace the summer season even though it’s only Spring but it’s not quite the same as when the season is here in full effect. School’s out and there is just a completely different vibe in the city.

Diwali - Festival of Lights

Diwali


Diwali is the Hindu Festival of Lights. It is one of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring things one can experience in this lifetime. I remember the first time I saw this festival taking place. I was a child. No older than 4 or 5. My dad took me into a local cemetery where the people were lighting candles and lamps. You’d think that it would be creepy being in a cemetery in the middle of the night but No, not at all. It was quite peaceful and beautiful. I’ve only had the chance to experience this festival once and it has stuck with me ever since. I guess that’s why I enjoy Christmas so much now but the lights put out for Christmas pale in comparison to the flickering light show put on during Diwali. So, just what is Diwali anyway?

Thunder and Lightning Storm

Stormy weather


Unlike most people, I Love it when it rains. Not only rain but storms. Wind, Rain, Thunder and Lightning. It’s like God is putting on a show for us. It’s fun and exciting!

I remember being a kid, alone to my own devices and bored out of my head. It’d be overcast and I’d be just as gloomy as the weather. Then I’d hear it! A rumble in the sky. Although back then, I actually did think it came from the sky. Don’t laugh, but… Promise not to laugh? If I see even the slightest chuckle I’m not telling you.

Adding Beauty to Life


Charming life designs is a blog that is all about bringing beauty to the world. Everywhere I turn I see so much beauty and I wish to share this with you. From things I see in my every day to things I remember from my childhood. Even things places and events that friends, family members, and acquaintances tell me may inspire me to write. In other cases, these may just be things that I imagine. Daydreams I may have as I look out to the sun. Early morning as the sun rises or late evening as I sit on my balcony watching the sun give its final hoorah for the day as it paints the sky in colours that just take my breath away. Reds, and oranges. Sometimes even fuschia! Hitting the clouds and reflecting a prism of the most warm and beautiful light.
