Thoughtful Thursday

Happy Thursday! The last few weeks have been pretty busy plus I've been dealing with sinus issues per the usually. Hopefully, since it's starting to get cooler, the weather will help it some. Other than, that not much has been happening. Here are the thoughts/quotes for the week:

Have a great day. Peace & Blessing, everyone!

Thoughtful Thursday

Happy September... It's officially almost Fall (depending on which part of the country you live in). You would think it was Fall with all the Pumpkin spice flavored drinks that are out. Technically, we still have about 2 and half weeks until Fall. Anywho, I've busy living life (meaning working and trying to not be a big slacker pants).  I'll probably post tomorrow because I saw some pretty interesting article this week. Until then, here are some thoughts for today:

Have a great Thursday.  Peace & Blessings, all!!

Thoughtful Thursday

      And it's the last Thursday of the month. August has really flown by. It's crazy to believe that Summer will be over in 3-4 weeks. I know for one thing, I'll be happy when Summer ends because the weather will definitely cooler and less humid. Anywho, this is going to be short and sweet. So, here are a few post today:

Peace & Blessing, all!!! Have a great day.

August Monthly goals

         I can't believe that August (and Summer) are almost over. It seems like yesterday it was Memorial Day and now it is near the end of August. The last month or so I have forgotten (or was too busy) to post my monthly goal. Between July and August, I've combined my goals. Some of those goals will rollover into my September ones. Here were my goals for this month:

Focus on things I enjoy
I have been trying to take up hobbies again. I feel like all I've been doing is sitting around, watching bad reality TV shows. So far, I have bee doing my French lessons everyday, trying to get back into finishing some of the course that I signed up for in particular my CPT course (since I paid for it 2 + years ago). 

Catch up on reading
Anyone that follows me on IG has seen the stack of books that I've been trying to get through since Spring of 2020. I have made a dent in the stack but I keep getting new books. The goal is to finish the stack that I have before I add anything new. I have 3 more left to finish before the end of the month. Wish me luck!

Try new, healthier recipes
I've been trying to eat better. It has been tough due to living with a person who eats out non-stop. The rest of this month/into September, I'm going to try to use some of my low-calorie recipes from some of my cookbooks (I'll be sharing a cookie recipe next week). Part of the reason I'm doing this is for health, the other is so that all the food that I buy will not go to waste.

Create budget
A few years ago, I was really good at keeping and making a budget. About the last year (end of 2019 to be exact) until now my budget has been non-exist which not good. I originally used to keep a notebook and spreadsheet. I'm going to try to find a better way to keep it (and where it won't cost me a bunch of money).

So, those were my goals for August. In the process of trying to finish some of them (the reading one in particular). Probably at the beginning of September, which is next Wednesday (super crazy Fall is about to be here) I'll post the goals for that month. With August though: Better late, than never. Some of these may be continued in September (like making a budget). We'll see what happens the rest of this week before I write the list for next week.

Until then, Peace & Blessings, all!

Thoughtful Thursday

      New month, new book of quotes. This month all of my post are going to be coming from Billy Chapata's book of poetry, Flowers on the Moon. Since the end of July, I've been mad busy/in a writer's block so to speak. On the plus side, I've been able to finish most of the books that I started reading in June. Other than that, here are some thoughts for this week:

Peace and Blessing, everyone. Have a great Thursday!

Weekend Reads

Happy Friday! Not only is it Friday but it's the last Friday in July. It's wild that August starts Sunday and that summer is close to being over.  Wish I could say that I'm doing something exciting this weekend but honestly, I'm doing noting at all. Probably just catching up on my shows, might bake some cookies, you know the usual. So anywho, here are some articles that I found interesting over the last few weeks:

How eating fruit can help lower Diabetes risk.

How changing your attitude can be a good thing.

Check to see if you make any of these mistake with your oven.

They these 3 fats when cooking next time for brain health.

Try some of foods if you have stomach issues. 

Well, everyone have a great weekend and Friday. Peace and Blessings, all!!

Thoughtful Thursday

      Can't believe that this is the last Thursday in August. Finally posting some quotes again though. I got another book of poems , so after I'm done with this book I'll be posting from that. Mostly the second week of August is when I'm going to move away from the Mark Twain book.  I'm going to try to do better time on management but let's be real: there are time that I'd rather be napping or trying to catch up on my stack of books. I'm for real going to try to post 3-4 times a week in August but we'll see what happens. Anywho, here are some Mark Twain quotes for this week:

I'll probably be posting a Weekend Reads tomorrow since I've been MIA for a while. Until then, Peace and Blessings, Everyone!!!
