It’s been over a month since we’ve been out of our mandatory quarantine when we arrived in Italy from the USA. I would’ve shared more sooner, but I’ve been busy writing romance novels.
I’m about to publish my 6th one titled, Count On Me, which is the 2nd book in a four-book series titled Young Brothers. The first book in the series is Fake It, which is available now. And the third book in the series, Playtime, will be available later this month. So, yeah. Busy! And loving it.
Which is really to say that we stay home a lot. As much as I’d like to explore more of Italy, especially in these times where crowds are minimal, we’re staying home. Our outings include walking around our gorgeous town and going to the store for groceries.
We’re happy as heck, too, enjoying our beautiful apartment which has become a lovely home, and coasting through day after day. It’s la dolce vita, even just staying home most of the time.
We’ve bought a number of things to making time in our apartment fun, beautiful, and useful. From the twenty pound salt lamp to our wicked balance board to the exercise equipment and Instant Pot (my old best friend) and Airfryer (my new best friend)…we’re absolutely set.
Oh, and the Venus flytrap (pictured above)! It’s makes a much better “pet” than a rollie pollie.
News in Italy: Everyone now wears masks here, all the time when you’re out. If you’re walking outside in a piazza? Mask. Walking in a store? Mask.
Mask Mask Mask.
Meditating is my morning routine.
Here I am meditating. I do this almost every day. As you all know my passion for Dr. Joe Dispenza’s morning meditation.
I’ve also added meditations that came free with Dawson Church’s Bliss Brain (recommended) new book.
I listen to one of his 15-minute meditations and then follow it with Dr. Joe’s awesome morning meditation (~ 27 minutes?).
I exercise daily.
Without a gym membership we’ve bought a few awesome things to make exercising fun and inspiring. I like keeping a fit body and I absolutely boost my happiness when I’m moving, exercising, and challenging my body.
