Daily AFFIRMATION via Post-It.....

I just love Post-It sticky notes.....and the many ways they can be utilized! 



I started doing this, off and on, several years ago.  When I found a quote, photo or something that I really want to imprint at a deeper level, I would jot it down and stick it on a mirror where I would see it several times a day.  Since Eddie Dale and I share a bathroom and humidity might create a "sticky" issue, I have posted this little message to myself on the full-length mirror next to the door of my closet. 

Okay, interpret that in any way you like.....it's not that I look in the mirror numerous times out of vanity.  It's just that I know I will see it here when I am getting ready every morning....or before I leave the house. 

Here is an idea, albeit an AFFIRMATION, that I can look at - and say out loud - as I am checking my appearance each day......



It reminds me to TRUST (my One Word for this year) and BELIEVE that God has great blessings in store for me.  It also prompts me to seek GUIDANCE with each step.  And it brings to mind one of my favorite scriptures to start off the day.....

"This is the day the LORD has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it!" - Psalm 118:24

Since this little reminder has gone up, I have repeated it enough times that I am now finding myself automatically incorporating it into my thoughts and prayers throughout the day. 

Does it work?  Well, how would you go about measuring the results?  

I can say, without reservation, that it truly brings a sense of PEACE to mind when I dwell on it.  And having it so close to the surface of my mind keeps these positive words accessible when I find myself thinking negative thoughts.  So, when I get stressed or discouraged and negative thoughts start creeping in, I can switch tracks easily by focusing on this affirmation. 

Since I am a visual person, and really need to see things written down to latch on, this method works for me.  Do you have something similar that helps you?   

If you do, I hope you will share it in the comment section below - it might really be an blessing to someone else who reads it.  If not, give this a try for a few days - your own words of encouragement, or maybe a pertinent scripture - and see if it helps you stayed focused and positive.

Pushing onward and upward.....

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
