Chai Tea & Cold Lunch

" Yesterday is already a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, but today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope." - Sanskrit Proverb
This is the quote that is inside of the CHAI Tea that I just opened. As I take my first sips this morning, I remember why I love this tea so much. I am trying to drink less coffee, not that I drink a lot , but I think I am sick of it if that makes sense. I decided I may have a cup here and there but I don't want to be dependent on it each morning. I want to make it an non-requirement of my morning routine, yet still an occasional option. I don't know how far I will get, but I am giving it a try.
The photo above is of two mini blank books that I made. I havent been able to scrap lately, so this was a nice little retreat for my creative soul. The books are made in pamphlet style stich (which is super simple - anyone who wants to learn, just ask and I will be happy to show you). Cardstock for the covers, twine and thread for binding, copy paper for inside pages.
This weekend was crazy and tough (I was sick with a migrane for a good portion of it). So, I didn't get alot acomplished. I did offically close my ETSY shop for now. I have a few things to finish off and send off, but for the most part I am done and although I am kind of sad and it feels weird, it is such a relief. It feels good. It is the right thing for now. I will be happy to start doing projects for family and friends again soon though. :)
Isabelle has school pictures today. I don't even know what she will be wearing yet (which is really not like me, but like I said kind of yuk weekend). She is insisting on bringing cold lunch to school (school serves hot lunch which we have got all along, she wants to bring a lunch in a bag from home), so I told her that we could try it today and see how it goes and maybe once a week we can look at the food schedule, she what she doesnt like (like FISH) and that could be a day she brings cold lunch. Isabelle's teacher is out for a few weeks and although she likes the substitute, Isabelle told me the other day that she misses her teacher so much that "her heart hurts". I really need a haircut. It's slowly getting lighter outside, but I don't see the sun yet. Wishing everyone a beautiful Autumn Day. Take time to watch the leaves fall!
