Know Your Flow

To prepare for sleep, I chose to halt the flow of day into evening. Work was one of them, which was mentioned in the previous post, and we’ll dive deeper into working from home soon. Today we’ll keep walking toward a good night’s sleep. You know my love for coffee, and the coffee bar was […]

Enjoy the Good

I asked my daughter, “Have you noticed the coffee bar smells like coffee?” Walking by the bar, you can smell the various grinds from it’s frequent use. She introduced me to this roaster a month ago. I just love the name, ‘Hairbender’. She used it to make a Chemex for us to share. Once that […]

Set It High

Life can get messy and it sorta hurts my feelings when it does. This morning, I was thinking about discipline. That is something I really worked on last year, and am still working on today. No matter how well I think I’m doing, life has it’s way of showing me, I’m not in control of […]

The Velvet Timberland’s

Me: Would you like a cup of coffee? (watching the Chemex complete it’s cycle.) Her: I just made a cup of tea. Me: You can have both. (said with ease) Her: What a beautiful world we live in when I can have both. Our life is beautiful, and I think sometimes people become weary of […]

The Mindless Activity

The best ideas occur while showering. They used to form while vacuuming, but this house doesn’t have any carpet, so the vacuum isn’t used often. While washing dishes is another good mindless activity. These are things we do without thinking. They don’t take concentration, so the mind has room for an idea to surface. In […]

Make Small Choices

“Maybe I’m too picky?”, was my thought. I debunked that thought quickly after taking a glance at the past and seeing where not being picky landed me. Quality of life reflects choices my darling, no matter how small. At 10:00 am I made my second Chemex. I’m not sitting here highly caffeinated because I poured […]

A Peaceful Sunday

My camera roll reflects my life. The caption for this photo would read, “Happy Sunday. It’s ‘be good to you’ day. Which should be everyday, but it’s a little bit sweeter on a Sunday.” It’s how this day began. Sunday has rapidly become my favorite day of the week. What I do today and the […]

There Is Happiness

Writing is happiness. I’m not sure if it brings it in, or if I have so much happiness, it’s a form of release. Sloth’s and candles are happiness. Being here with you is happiness. Thank you for the love and care on my previous post. I was struggling to find my happy again. A friend […]

I’m Not Empty

It’s funny what you get used to. I take a lot for granted. Especially morning routines. I’m having Oral Surgery this afternoon and can’t eat or drink beforehand. This is a pitiful picture to post. It made me a little bit sad walking into the kitchen, knowing I couldn’t fix it. My body is confused. […]

A Chill Day

I just made my second Chemex. The first one was shared with my daughter. She is the Queen of Chemex, so it makes me a little nervous when I hand her one that I make. This morning as I was making it, thoughts of her and how happy she is right now were floating through […]
