I think I can, I think I can

The last couple weeks have been tough. Between work and my health I have felt alone, bitter, and tired of life. But since I’ve started work at the pre school I have slowly gotten to a betterind set. These kids are so cute and excited about life, it’s hard not being joyful. I love it. Though I do need to make a new appointment for my doctors and reschedule another. Getting into new routines are a pain, but I’m getting there.

Have a good day!


Monday Madness

Good afternoon everyone! The last week has been crazy with today topping it off at work. I’m finally getting over my head and chest cold and feeling better. Though I did have a break down on Saturday night after missing a dose of my medication, but I missed it due to spending the night with my cousin. We drank homemade margaritas and had a great girls night.

I got a new job at a local preschool as an assistant teacher!!! I start February 5th and I’m really excited. But I do feel guilty about stepping down from my PIC position at Fred Meyers, because I feel like I’m letting my manager down. At the same time I know I shouldn’t feel like that, because it’s my life and a step in the direction of where I’d like to see myself one day as a career.

Also I’ve created and have business cards and flyers for my beaded earrings! It’s a step in the right direction. So I’ll post a picture of both once they come in.

Well I have to get back to work!

Love you all! 😘



Lazy Day

This year is already flying! My goals for the year are:

1: Do what I want or need to do to make myself happy

With this I am taking days for myself, I even dyed my hair red and it looks great. Applying to jobs that I’d rather be at, like being a teacher assistant for a preschool; btw the kids there are adorable. I’m pushing myself with beading when my body allows it as well as making business cards for it. Also I will be taking a class at my Alum College, APU. Yay for learning!

2: Pay off my debt

This started off with H and R block taxes (I hate them so much) and the IRS. And my boyfriend’s debt is almost gone too. I may or may not apply for another deferment for my student loans, but we shall see.

3: Heal my body and soul

Between my conventional doctors and my new traditional healers, I’m hoping to find myself in a better mental state.

4: Write more letters or post cards

That and write more today bits here!

Today I am recovering from a cold. Been working non stop and today is .y first day off that I don’t have to leave the house. I’ve been coughing and sneezing and hard of hearing due to the congestion. So have a great Tuesday Everyone!



Winter is here

The last three weeks have turned into a blur. I worked my butt off at work doing overtime, got a small chest cold, took a week long vacation in Washington [state] with my boyfriend, and now back home with a lingering cold. I’ve had my blog in the back of my head, but I was distracted and unfocused. But despite being sick and winter looming here in Alaska [it snowed while we were out of state] both my boyfriend and I are doing well. I even set up a corner for my beading with a table I found at Goodwill last night!

The vacation was much needed, though my boyfriend thought he’d be bored all week. In the end he had a great time and clicked with my family [minus my sister, but that’s a story by itself]. He even danced with my aunt Wanda who doesn’t dance. It was a lovely visit. Though I wish more of my family members could have stopped by to say hi. I carved several pumpkins and roasted the seeds next to a warm fire pit outside. The one person who I really wanted to see ended up being too busy and I was getting sick again , so we’ll have to try again next time.


My corner of peace,

Next to the window and in front of the fire,

Beads aligned with needles near by,

Every color imaginable plus more.

Fresh needles and thread and a place for finished earrings,

My spot draws me in and I am happy to bead again.


I’m so excited to have my corner! I’ve been wanting to create one for awhile now. As well as beading, I am wanting to write more letters, so I have the supplies in the corner as well. Life is well.



A Good Day

Since last Monday be I’ve had a few really bad days, where my whole body hurts and swollen joints, but a few good ones have slipped in. The worst is when my hands are sore and swollen, makes it hard to do what needs to be done as well as do what I would like to do (beading). Though today was one of my good days. After work I had enough energy to walk more rather than sit and wait. The weather helped too; not too hot and not a lot of pollen.

One a sad, but happy ending my coffee pot died on me on Sunday morning 😧 but I was able to buy a new one plus a coffee grinder for the price of one 😄. It’s a red Black and Decker 12 cup; I go between Black & Decker and Mr.Coffee for my at home coffee needs. Much love for those two brands.

Also with my extra energy today I made homemade Mac and Cheese with salad. The cheese sauce was made with whole milk, a spoonful of flour, a slice of butter, about 2 cups pre-shredded sharp cheddar, a couple vigorous shakes of black pepper, and a dash of salt. I also added a mixture of meatless sausage, one chopped carrot, two green onions, two cloves of garlic, one sarano pepper, three white mushrooms, and one can of white whole kernal corn. After layering my noodles, mixture and sauce I baked for ten minutes with a sprinkle of the cheddar on top. So good! I love baking the Mac and Cheese for 5-10 minutes to melt everything together. To top it off I got Ben and Jerry’s ice cream 💜

Well I’m getting tired. I hope you all have a great week!
