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! 😘



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!



The Beginning

Many people have goals they wish to accomplish, but they get side-tracked or their passion dies off. I’m through with letting life or myself, get in the way of my happiness. Thanks to my wonderful and supportive boyfriend, glassofwater, I am jumping onboard the blog express to finally start doing what I want to do: share my passions and knowledge with everyone and remind myself what I am capable of doing.

My goal is to upload a new post weekly, I’ll start with Mondays for now till my schedule changes within the next couple weeks.

It’s snowing this morning; not terribly excited since I have to drive to work in about an hour. People here in Alaska have been driving in the snow as if they had never seen it before. Till I have to get ready for work, I’ll just sit here and type as I sip my Casi Cielo blend coffee with a splash of almond syrup.

The snow is really coming down. I just hope I can make it out of my neighborhood and safely get to work. I don’t have the funds to get a cab. I love Alaska’s winters, just not when I work across town with bad roads and terrible drivers who think that because they have snow tires and four-wheel drive they can go faster and not get into wrecks.

Either way wish me luck!
