Back in my mindless spending days, I never gave much thought about what I purchased. If I wanted/needed it and had the money, I bought it. In a nutshell, my entire shopping thought process was a bad one. I was a huge emotional shopper, and my stress and boredom led me to the mall every weekend. My closet overflowed, my heart still felt empty and my frustration grew because I had nothing of real value or substance. And therein lies the rub. I was using my money on meaningless things because it had no purpose, leaving me adrift.
Easter is fast approaching so I thought now was a great time to share some of my favorite recipes since you’re likely fine-tuning your holiday menu. And I’ll be honest — originally I intended to share a new recipe for Easter today but … well, let’s just say I wasn’t overly impressed and I don’t share recipes that leave me feeling meh. I only share awesome recipes. Well, awesome to me at least!
My friend Jana had another edition of Three Things and I cannot help but play along. Sure, sure, maybe I didn’t have another post for today but still … I’d have found time to join the fun because you can never know too much about someone. This is a lie. I most definitely believe you can know too much about someone!
Not to be confused with Alt-Right, okay? All right as in okay. Not delicious but satisfying. Because I’m not alt-right but I am a foodie who uses food metaphors to express how I feel. And now that I think about it: Books, food and cats are pretty much on my mind 24/7. Wait a minute! My mind is a glorious place to laze about and inhabit! And to think, I’ve been boo-hooing my crazy for years. My crazy is AWESOME!
My friend Audrey did this a couple weeks ago and decided to tag in because I love these kind of posts. You find out so many interesting tidbits about your fellow bloggers and friends. Now because I am old, I won’t swear on one of my cat’s 9 lives that all my answers are 100% accurate. They are, however, what I remember. And sometimes … I make stuff up.
We live in weird times. Some days I feel like the sky is literally falling and the end is nigh. Other times I feel deeply optimistic that everything is not only going to be okay but amazing. Like, we faced our flaws and prejudices and hates and conquered them for good. Of course, then the real world evades again and I want to crawl back into bed and pull the covers over my head. Like I said, weird times.
