Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

It’s Friday… YAYYY and so much to catch up on and share but I’ll try to keep it under an hour.. LOL. (Georgakai is the nick name our kids made up). Keep reading… you might be the winner of my book!

Life’s simple pleasures

Evident through completion

Drink in the nectar

Cindy Georgakas

Whew ๐Ÿ˜…, the final push is over and now the work begins but first a break from our sponsor. That’s right from muuuuwah. YES, I’m heading out on a real vaca this time to Mexico and am even taking a blog break, seriously. Of course I will probs read you but I’m going to try for the life of me NOT to ๐Ÿคฃ because when I get home the work begins, AGAIN! Yes, that’s always the way. Plan, Leap, Sleep and begin again. I finally got my 100 author copies and can start hitting the book stores, Oprah, Vogue, etc.. you know the little stuff. HA! ๐Ÿ˜‚ And then the miracle babies coming soon after that.

REVIEWS:

But first and foremost, I have NO words to share how deeply blessed I am to have each of you as friends and such a source of inspiration and support in my life. Thank you truly for everything. Your reviews that have touched me deeply, buying my book, reviews on amazon and just showing up and being here. Thanks Sheereen, I did see your review and loved it too. Thanks for sending it to me. Some just take awhile to show up. Just like me in your feed. Sorry, I’ve been behind in my reading.

I got an email from Robbie at Robbies Inspirations, saying Cindy did you see Smitha’s review and she sent me the link. Thank God for friends! Sorry if I’ve missed you lately as you know how it is when you are trying to get out of dodge. I literally just read it as I like to savor these moments when they come in. Finally, I saw Smitha’s Instagram text and she said “Finally…I kept thinking why you weren’t reading it and reminded myself your lines from the book, ‘If someone does not contact you, it’s not about you. It’s about them. Don’t be egoistical.’ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. See what an impact your book made on me.” I will actually share her review on Monday with comments off as she truly embodies in her words what my mission has been for my book. In the meantime, do check out her book, Coming Home available on Amazon which promises just that through self-discovery, relationships, loss, love, destiny, the choices we make, and how these choices eventually lead to what we are destined for.

HOUSE REMODEL PICTURES:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our living room with the upgraded paint and my husband HATES, HATES, HATES. Sounds like the perfect marriage right? Love, Hate.. lol. ๐Ÿ˜‚โฃ๏ธ. It actually is a little brighter white that I’d have liked but the painter didn’t wait for approval so there was that but oh well, I’m just grateful. I feel lighter walking into it and do love that it merges the rooms better. Plus, when I finally get the proper furniture all will be well! Here is the before and after

Here’s a few more… I’ll share the other rooms that are almost done but still in process when they are done.

Ollie & Star approved… If you look closely you will see I tiled above the bathroom door. The blue room will be transforming into a nursery for awhile.

PREPARING FOR BABY AND NARNIA’S MOVE IN:

We’ve made adjustments in this room and I’ve had to move things out because Narnia has gotten more free stuff for the baby than you can shake a stick at and my room is now turning into a nursery but only for a short time. You know from my book if you’ve read it, I had some trepidation about her moving in but get this: She found an amazing cottage a mile away from us from friends she plays co-ed softball with and they are giving it to her at a price a school teachers salary will allow. That Monday night bartending gig has paid off big time as they came into the restaurant the night she was working and offered it to her. We all couldn’t be happier! This is just another example of putting out what you need and the universe saying YES! If you don’t ask, you’ll NEVER know, so ASK! In the meantime my new “guest” closet designed for 3 days of staying has transformed into a cat/baby closet. Breathing and going with the flow.

SISTERLY LOVE

Both girls are doing great and in waiting. Proud and excited soon to be Great Grandma can’t wait!

WINNERS OF THE BOOK GIVEAWAY:

Thanks to all of you for being so active on my my launch tour and especially to the following friends. I couldn’t pick just 3 since all 5 of you shared the love so muchโฃ๏ธ

The Winners are…….. Da ta da da…..

CONGRATULATIONS & GRATITUDEโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธ

Devang from The Fat Guy Workout

Sheereen The Lightening Bug

Johnnie By the Mighty Mumford

Dawn Benedict from Rhymes, Dreams, Fantasy and Thoughts

RoseyEveningaruna3

Selma finding extra in the ordinary

India and Japan may well be sending the PDF/ePub copies depending on shipping fees which are usually more than the book. Some of you may prefer that. Contact me today with your addresses and I’ll try to get them out before my trip.

Alrighty, have an awesome week and keep envisioning what your next steps are and going for your dreams. Until we meet again, I’ll be drinking in the R&R. My schedule will look like this.. meditate, work out, eat, sleep, drink in the margarita nectar (of course add chips and guac) repeat…Hasta la vista baby!

Stay Blessed,

๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hi Cindy, I am glad you are taking a break, you have been living in a whirlwind for the last few months. Your daughter looks healthy and happy. I can see she is due soon. I’m glad she has found somewhere nice to live and has lots of useful things for the baby. It was my pleasure to share Smitha’s review with you. I actually do that often for authors when I can see they haven’t visited the post. We are all friends here in the blogsphere.

Your house is looking great, Cindy! Your book is out. The girls are probably doing as well as possible for new moms to be. So, go on the vacations. Forget the boom and forget the blog for a week or however long you will be gone. I know it won’t be possible to forget expecting moms… ๐Ÿ™‚
