Monday mourning. Pun intended.

img_2520Happy Monday!  I woke up wide-eyed, dreamy, and grateful to start out my day.  I took the dogs out, washed my face, brushed my teeth, moisturized my face, threw on a hoodie, tied my hair into a pony tail, and jetted off to my Monday Plant Meditation course (note:  I am celebrating my small victories)!  I was eager to learn about Schizandra, a berry that appeals to the five senses, but quickly found that my taste buds did not approve of the pungent flavors.  However, I loved learning about its protective liver properties, its ability to help a person focus, and how it could be beneficial to my partner’s own needs.  I opted out of the tea mix and instead opted to bring a Schizandra tincture for my partner.

I stocked up on chrysanthemum and hops and am hoping to extract a new hair oil conditioner in the upcoming weeks.  My body is loving the rose hip and calendulla body oil I made last week.  I can not wait to provide you all with the updates on that.

img_2521I have been loving every moment reading, writing, praying, meditating, and time spent with my two furballs.  They are the cutest and I am sad that our mornings, afternoons, and evenings will no longer be spent hampering each other.  I truly understand the saying, “Dog is man’s best friend.”

I wanted to provide a list of the books I’ve finished reading the past two weeks.  I’ve found them to be extremely helpful, and enlightening, and just wanted to reference them for readers who have been wondering why I keep quoting the same three people.  I highly recommend all of these.  They are well written and stimulated me spiritually and intellectually.

  1. The Alchemist by Paul Coelho
  2. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra
  3. The Language of Feelings by David Viscott
  4. Success Affirmations by Jack Canfield
  5. The One Year Daily Grind by Sarah Arthur
  6. Women’s Devotional Holy Bible

I love reading.  I can read all day and night.  It’s invigorating for me.  There’s something nostalgic about flipping through hundreds of pages and letting the mind wander through creative new avenues.  For as long as I can remember I have wanted a library.  Just to sift my hands through. One of the first phone conversations I had with my partner was about libraries and books. I told him my future home would have one room dedicated to books, novels, and my art.  He told me I was weird but I guess that’s why he’s marrying me, right? 🙂

It’s Monday.  It’s the start of a new week!  A new chapter.  A new writing. A new blog.  It’s not Monday “mourning” … it’s Monday MORNING!!!

Love and light,
