I know these images have made the rounds and they've even changed the colour of this room to blue now, but I still love this colour. I'm going to do my powder room in this colour when I can find the time. The whole place will be needing a fresh coat of paint some time in the future. But for now, I love this room. It just feels so cosy.

A beautiful summer and I was not able to enjoy much of it so, sadly no tan. However, these two shades make even my pale skin look .... well less white. Thank you Chanel.

A few free minutes to myself tonight and I figured I would catch up on some posting. I cannot be consistent for the next while, but I have hired a private nurse to help out and give me some free time once in a while. So since I miss my serene life I figured I would load up on pictures periodically and return to the main reason I started this blog. A serene place that I can express myself and be myself when the world refuses to let me. It will be low on verbal content and high on imagery. Sorry to anyone I forget to give credit to as research is not high on my priority list at the moment when I have such limited time. At any rate, as I am a big Ralph Lauren fan why not start with his latest home collection... Alpine :Lodge.

This morning it hit me that A Serene Life for Me will have to be postponed for a while. Life has become too hectic to keep up the blog.
In the past year we've been hit with so many difficult blows to overcome that it's taken a major toll on my health. As previously stated my father is dying of ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. If you're familiar with it at all it slowly robs you of your muscles as your body shuts down on you. It's a horrible way to die and right now my father can't speak and can barely walk. Falls and chocking are frequent and since I'm his main caregiver and still work full time, there is very little of me left for anything else.
Everything is suffering because of the events of the past year and I've finally reach the point where I need to let some things go so that I can regroup and focus on what's important to me and my family. I will miss blogging, but some things are more important and since I have no way of knowing how long this will last, I have no idea how long it will be before I can begin posting again. I hope to continue someday but until the clouds part for us I'm afraid this is so long for now.
I wish everyone the best out there in blog land and especially to those wonderful people that I've touched base with that have been so kind and encouraging. Check me out once in awhile. I hope to be back and continue our relationship...
