I love this book, 1001 Ways to Relax by Mike George.  I was thinking about the upcoming holidays and how stressful things can be this time of year.  Let me share one of his thoughts for dealing with stress and emotions:

"Take the Optimistic Approach.  According to psychological research, optimists adopt a specific 'explanatory style' when interpreting the events that happen to them, attributing positive events to their own abilities and seeing negative events as isolated instances of bad luck. This approach bolsters self-esteem and peace of mind, giving those who practice it greater resilience and ability to cope with difficult situations."

Have a blessed day!

Be Sure to Look Up...

On a day of shooting photos around a neighborhood in Sarasota, I almost missed this gem!  This curious face was found on the side of a tree about 12 feet in the air.  So glad I looked up!

Unspectacular Quirks...

Me&mom

Was rummaging through some old photos and thought I would share a couple.  This one is of me and my mom on my second birthday.  Cake in bottom left hand corner.  Glad I now wear my dresses over my undies!  :)!

Good Day!  I have been tagged by Denise to share with you some unspectacular quirks about myself. Here goes...

1. I must have clean feet!  I have been known to get out of bed just to wash them in the sink if they don't "feel" clean enough at bedtime!

2. I not only eat the exact same thing for breakfast every morning, but I must eat it the same way as well.  I eat oatmeal that I cook with a few added special ingredients.  I cook it until it is thick and then I put it in a bowl and spread it up around the rim.  I like it cooled off a bit and I eat from the outer edge of the bowl down to the bottom.  The upper rim cools off quicker and by the time I get to the bottom, the temperature is just right!  Weird, eh?

3. This is really no secret, but I must  have lip balm with me at all times.  It is really scary how many tubes of Burt's Bees Lip Balm I have all over the house, purse and car.  I keep one in each room and I sleep with one under my pillow for easy access in the night when my lips get dry.  Now that is weird!

4. I can't sleep without a fan. In fact, I sleep with three at home and I travel with a smaller one.

5. I don't like warm lettuce. 

6. I load the dishwasher in a specific way and prefer to do it myself so everything is loaded just right!

I will do my best to tag some other folks soon!

Back to School & Missing Pens...

Notesblog

I am so excited to be starting a new class today!  I've had Adobe Illustrator for a while now and have tried to get in and play with it, but it is a little complicated.  I'm looking forward to learning in a classroom situation so I can ask questions. 

Okay, what is is about ink pens?  Am I the only one who acquires pens from "I don't know where" and loses a pen all of a sudden after taking such good care of it after months and months?  I don't get it!

T

Minus five days! 



Have a blessed day!
