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.

Plans Change…

I normally don’t plan out my entire day, so I would have an idea what I want to do versus what I am actually going to be able to do.  I was trying to step out of my ordinary day, but plans don’t always go the way you work them out in your head or on paper (depending on how you think).

I have been walking past a storage bin at work for weeks and when it went on sale I got happy. Then I started thinking “I don’t really need this, because I already had one.” I kept on walking and then it went on sale again and I knew it was coming home with me. 

I haven’t had time to take it out of the box and build it. Today was going to be my day to do just that, but old arthur “arthritis”in my right hand is screaming “NO WAY – NOT TODAY!” loud and clear. Arthur you are going to get out of my body and NEVER come back, because by His blood I am healed…

I got a new project I am still hoping I can at least start. Having a full weekend off is a treat and I don’t want to just watch anime and sip in hot lemon water. Now don’t get me wrong, I am in a realizing state right now, but I didn’t want to have a lazy weekend. Oh well it is what it is……

Starting Over….

I am Not sure when I lost track of “Me,” but somehow that is what I did. I was so proud of the 23 pounds I lost, but my doctor didn’t see it my way. I know she was explaining something important, but I was too upset to pay attention. Yes, that was beyond wrong.

That was a few days ago and I can either stay in the past or I can move on. I am looking ahead to a better me and leaving the old sad girl behind. I started a 25 push-up challenge for 30 days. I know I am a few days late, it was 25 this morning and another 25 before I have my last cup of water for today.

I have also stepped up on drinking water. Hot lemon water with a little honey, turmeric, and ginger makes drinking water a little easier. I may be cheating a little, but I am drinking more water. 

I am creating more and running out of space, it’s time to get to selling my projects. I also realized a few things?

  1. I enjoy creating crochet projects..
  2. I like to make something personal for anyone who likes homemade crochet items.
  3. I am NOT ALL ABOUT $$. Yes, I would like to have a little extra spending $$ in my pocket. The thing is I know there is a person on the other side of the computer screen and why not get that person in on their special items..

I am on the hunt for another anime while I work on my next project…..
