Miles to go before I sleep…

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I sometimes wake up and wonder where I am.  Not physically, but mentally… emotionally… How did I get where I am and where am I going? 

How did I go from having no friends and nothing to do to being busier than I know how to handle?  When do I sleep?  What is sleep?  

How do I find pleasure in the little things so I can survive each day?  When do I get to start living again? 

Blah… 

… the answer is: CHAI and sparkles and that's really all I've got time for!

  1. I think the same thing...tea and sparkles is pretty much all the time there is for, although sometimes warm bubble baths...if I'm lucky!! Gorgeous sweater :) xx

    1. Mmmmmmm, I have a tub in my new house and it's right under a skylight, but I never remember to get myself bubbles! I've lived here for almost 8 months and haven't had a single bath!

  3. I really love that third photo down of you. And seriously! Some days I feel I can't even afford to make myself a cup of tea! But when life is busy, life is good. :)

    1. Thank you! I've never been happy with photos taken inside my house before these… I think the quality of light is what gives them the whimsy sort of rainy Sunday feeling they deserve!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I'm terrible at slowing down. I always want to, but can't seem to allow myself to stop until my body decides to develop swine flu or something horrendous like that and I have no choice but to chill out!
