Therefore I Can…..

I know I am not alone when I say, “I am grateful for a job, but I know I am worth better.” I am there, just to be there, and there is no fulfillment or joy going day by day in a blurr. It gets to the point I am dreading going into my workplace where I know they DO NOT CARE about me. I know I am more than what this company sees….

  • I can read: Therefore I can learn……
  • I can write: Therefore I repeat in black and white what to do…
  • I can move: Therefore I can get to the job site and do whatever task I am hired to do.
  • I have a heart: Therefore I care what I do and will do the best job I can do.

I spent a few hours online looking for another job, and I realized what I was doing as I found things wrong with each job. I know I want to find another job, but I don’t want to follow someone else’s rules.

I started my blog a few years ago, because I enjoy writing. I know what I write is a little all over the place and may or may not always be written correctly. Then I got to thinking maybe I can sell a blanket or two and not stress too much on finding another job. 

I like what I am doing, even with rude customers, but they all are not that way. My eyes are starting to hurt looking at this screen, so I am going to look for an anime to watch and work on another project.

My goal was to learn how to get my blog to work for me.  I got side tracked, by looking for a job in the real world, and not doing what was planned. I am still Smiling, because there is always tomorrow. If you don’t give up, you can always win another day, and I will have that win One Day!!

Need More Yarn….

I am still wondering how I could have worked on so many crochet projects, and not notice my yarn stash is gone?

There were a few times I almost had a smile, because someone wanted me to make something for them. As I listened to the colors and the size they wanted, I had more than five  patterns planned out, and was ready to get started.

I have learned from past mistakes to tell them your price, half up front, and the rest when done. No money, no blanket, and no you are not getting a refund. I should charge you for taking my smile away and wasting my time.

The Computer Wins Today….

I cannot believe I worked all day on a post for my Krachet Cafe post, but I am having trouble editing it on WordPress. I am beyond done with working on my site right now. Almost five hours wasted (with 1048 words, videoes watched, and editing pictures). Well I won’t say it was a total waste, because I have been drinking water and working out ten mintues every half an hour.

I know I will NOT come back to my original post today. I miss when you can just copy and past from Google Doc. oh well, maybe I will get back to it tomorrow. It isn’t hard not to believe I really don’t like computers. It is time to crochet and relax.

Words that was Unspken.

I couldn’t get past the feeling that there was something wrong, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what it was. I had to go over my to do list and the only thing that was going to change this week, was my dentist appointment.

I made the appointment two weeks ago and wrote the date, time, and address down the same day that it was given. I got time off from work and a ride too and from.

That feeling wouldn’t go away, so I made a phone call. I was upset, because I was given the wrong date and time. Fine, my ride said it was okay, but my job said, “No”. 

It was another slow day, so I picked up my favorite book Lysa TerKeurst, “100 DEVOTIONS to Know God IsHolding You Close,” and this is what I read:

I am so glad I made that call. I really would have been upset if I had gone a few miles out of my way. I am still upset that I have to wait another two weeks before I get to go to the dentist, and there is another misunderstanding. I will be going to a different dentist.

I have thirty minutes to relax before I start dinner. I will read a little and forget my morning and plan for a better day tomorrow..

A Long Weekend…

Ever been so bored you don’t know what to do? My mind is full of words and I know I should type them out, but without any energy to do it. I don’t want to even think about it.

I decided yesterday I was going to give up on coffee. It is something my doctor has been trying to get me to do for years. I am not doing this, because she thought it was a good idea. 

I am doing this to see if my hand and my toes will stop going numb or this trigger finger that is hindering my time working on my crochet.

I know chocolate has a little caffeine in it, so what is a healthier version of that? This cacao powder sounds like a good idea, and who knows I might like it?


Healthy Hot Chocolate with Cacao Powder

Feb 19, 2020 

From Scratch Fast

This quick homemade hot chocolate with cacao powder is made with just milk, honey, cacao powder and a touch of vanilla.  Let me assure you that it’s nearly as easy to make as a powdered mix, but it’s even more delicious and much more nutritious. It’s sweetened with just honey and is a wonderful wintertime “treat,” that’s really not a treat at all. 😉 

Get the recipe here: {}

I may have added more honey, a little cinnamon, and my favorite coffee creamer in it to make it drinkable.  Then again I DO NOT LIKE hot chocolate, but I couldn’t get the headache.

I had tired hot tea. All that did was make me sleepy. I know I will have to get used to not having as much caffeine as normal. It is saturday. It is a start. I don’t know how long I can hold out. 

I know it’s only coffee, and I have tried decaf. That is a NO! I don’t even feel like playing any of my games.  I am trying to focus on a project, but I am having trouble doing that. I did start three times and took it out three times. It’s going to be a long weekend.

Still I don’t feel like creating anything (I never thought I would say that unless I was sick and I am not sick) and my eyes don’t want to stay focused on the screen. I believe I will turn the music on and walk it out.
