It was a busy Monday. I didn’t sleep well last night so I was tired all day. Even though I drank almost an entire pot of coffee, I seemed to be walking around in a daze!!

After work, I came home and ate leftovers from the large feast I cooked yesterday. I can’t say it was all healthy, but it was very good. Even the second time. We had BBQ chicken, white beans, sweet potatoes, turnip greens and cornbread. Comfort food!

I hope Tuesday will be a less stressful day!  Time for meditation and relaxation. Ohm….


Manic Monday

What a Monday! I was very overwhelmed most of the day with so much work that I couldn’t get caught up. I really don’t like days like that. I even resorted to closing my office door for most of the afternoon. The bummer was the meeting that ran long during my lunch hour and got me off track. And I ended up working late to try to finish the things that were top priority. Whew! Now, I’m home and starting to relax a bit. 

I have been known to be a “stressed out” person by nature. But I had learned ways to deal with it, or so I thought. Some days are worse than others. And I wasn’t too bright in choosing my career as an accountant. I think its one of the most stressful jobs out there. So tonight I will try to remember the ways to deal with stress and see if it works. Wish me luck!

What works for you?

espresso time!

I found this is my favorite way to start the day…I am improving on my barista skills. My newest thing is making an iced mocha with the espresso. Very yummy.

blueberry muffins!


 It doesn’t seem like it should be Monday already. I guess that is because I worked most of the weekend. I’m thankful to have a job, so I’m not complaining.

As you probably know, I am a wine drinker. Do you have one of these handy tools? John is demonstrating. This is a wonderful thing! And we bought it at a liquidation store for $5.00. Awesome deal.

I love tools that make my life easier. Do you have any neat tools that you use often?

What are you doing to make your life better today? Have a Happy Monday!
