It gives one an energetic start to the day...
often times we wake after a fitful night of tossing and turning...
this is more common for me.
When these nights occur I try to be gentle with myself and start the day slowly...
I have not tried sleeping pills and asked the nurse at Hospice if I should try some after Mom passed away and she suggested that I try Gravol.
I purchased a small package and have tried them on several occasions...
they do work, but I wake feeling groggy so I am not planning to use them often.
Coffee helps wake me up
a good book
transports us away
it helps to gain perspective
put our troubles aside for awhile.
Once I hit the shower I am wide awake...
ready to seize the day.
Dressing for more energy means wearing some of my favourites...
Moto leather jacket ~ Danier
NYDJ boyfriend jeans
simple white Tee ~ Joe Fresh
my birthday shoes...
Ferragamo from darling daughter.
These shoes make me feel happy!
I wore this outfit to run errands and I had so much energy that I very nearly forgot to stop and eat lunch.
Parrot tulips from the grocery store...
spreading a beautiful energy
into The Humble Bungalow Kitchen.
Home style meat loaf, mashed potatoes and carrots...
the ultimate comfort food.
Refuelling with tasty food provides me with more energy.
I made a double batch of this meat loaf so that tomorrow evening all I need to do is reheat the spuds and the meat loaf and boil some peas.
The recipe is from Best of Bridge...
I broke the chipped Emma Bridgewater bowl I used for soap
when I was washing it the other week...
it just slipped out of my hands and smashed into a bazillion fragments.
Fortunately it did not damage our farmhouse sink.
Hooray the Hellebores are blooming!
Hope that your week is ticking along nicely.
What have you been doing?
Anything exciting to share?
Please don't be shy!
