What’s On My Mind? Wednesday. 2/24/2016.

I have been sick the past couple days, and by that I mean I could feel myself coming down with something bad, sore throat, headache, and weakness. Sometimes you have to tell yourself to literally relax, do nothing and get rest so that you don’t get the full blow of whatever sickness is lingering. So yesterday after doing all my normal morning things, I sat down on the couch with a pot of hot tea, my laptop and the television remote. I put on Buffy The Vampire Slayer and organized my Pinterest. I am not going to tell…

What’s on my mind? Wednesday. 1/27/16

A couple days ago I said I wasn’t going to drink coffee for two weeks… It’s a thing I do when I feel like I have become dependent on coffee and crave it at all hours of the day.

So what am I even talking about? Raw…

I love it so stupid much. I just use some big clips and attach a roll of this awesome paper. It is great for doodling, keeping messes to a minimum (sort of), experimenting and just loads of other things. It helps me get my thoughts out on paper. If there is something that pops into my head that minute and there is…

Double Limoncello Poppy Seed Cookies

We are in the dead of winter and I am over here making lemon poppy seed cookies. Why? Because I have quarts upon quarts of limoncello that I made last year for Christmas. I’m talking 2014, not this past Christmas. So this stuff has been getting good for over a year now! Limoncello isn’t something I like to drink daily. It’s a nice dessert-sipping lemon liqueur that is nice to have ice cold on a hot summer day. That is why I still have so much of it just chilling in my freezer…
