Monday Coffee Talk

Hello Monday! I’m feeling better than I have in months! I couldn’t be anymore excited about it in fact. Once you dig yourself so far into a hole it’s hard to see the way out. Over the weekend I found a few herbal supplements to help with my extreme anxiety. My family has an addictive personality so I wanted to be careful what I chose. The herbal way seemed like the way to go, however I am still taking the meds my doctor prescribed (No one was harmed in the actions portrayed in this post).


Goal One // Start a new after work routine. Since I’ve been in my reclusive funk for months I think it’s time to become positive again. For months I’ve been going to work, coming home, feeding Ruppert, then going to bed. No more, nuh huh!

Goal Two // To do at least one crafty thing this week. I get to work at 7:15am & get off around 6:00pm, that doesn’t leave a lot of time to get things done but I want to start at least one project this week. Even if I have to finish it on the weekend.

Goal Three // Practice yoga at least 3 times this week. It’s amazing how well those poses & their stretches melt away stress.

Are you doing any goal planning this week?

It’s OK Thursday!

How has your week been up until this point? Meh, I can’t complain but yesterday I was hit with horrible anxiety that didn’t start until I got to work. I did however make the cute “It’s OK Thursday” graphic when I got home while trying to relax.

It’s OK that I ate frosting (with sprinkles) for dinner last night. Being an adult is hard and yesterday, I just wasn’t having it. I had to make cakes for Honda anyway, so why not.

It’s OK that I had brunch on Sunday. We had toast, pancakes, grits (we’re southern), & corn beef hash. Needless to say we needed to be carried out.

It’s OK that Phoenix broke 7,000 miles this week! I’ve had him since December. I really love him & I can’t believe it’s taken this long. They’ll be more miles to come when mom & I head to Savannah & Atlanta next month!

It’s OK to miss this view. Dad & I have never taken a father daughter trip. We had so much! It was great to see him have so much energy and finally be comfortable in his own skin. Mom loved it because he was gone for 3 days.

It’s OK to be loving my “Om” bracelet. It’s comfortable and when I look at it, it reminds me to take a few deep breaths and exhale.

It’s OK that I finally opened my “It Works” -Greens- to have a glass. Did I love it? Did I like it? Check back early next week for a review!

What’s OK with you this week?

Want To Build A Sand Castle

When I was little I remember playing on the beach with my little plastic bucket and shovel. Myself making my masterpiece only for my brother to crash into it like a Cracken. I had no idea then that I’d fall in love with art or things I’d call art. Who knew that someone could take the same sand I was making my little castle out of and make an actual masterpiece!? Even on paper I can barely draw a stick figure let alone plan out and procicute an actual figure worth looking at.

Keeping with the lovely weather (It hasn’t been that bad this week. It’s only broke 85* once. It’s usually 100* by now) I found a couple sand castles that I envy. These really make my little bucket sand castles look pathetic.








The Reading List

I’ve discovered the love for reading again last year. I’ve fallen in love with Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen series. As of right now there are a total of 21 books in the series & yes. I plan to read them all. I did a review on The Blueberry Muffin Murder & it was great! As I said in the review these books keep your interest and you don’t have a clue as to who did it until the last few pages of the book.

I’ve started “Don’t Be A Stranger” but it seems promising too! I’m not so much into the romance novels but I love the murder mysteries! That may sound weird but I like trying to figure out who did it before I’m told.

The reading list for the rest of 2015:

“Don’t Be A Stranger” by A.R Winters

“Peach Cobbler Murder” by Joanne Fluke

“Cherry Cheesecake Murder” by Joanne Fluke

“Key Lime Pie Murder” by Joanne Fluke
