Documenting Life…One day at a time

Documenting Life…One day at a time

I decided to participate in Capture Your 365 this year and talked this goal in a previous post. In an effort to share this goodness with you, I decided to link the page that was created by Katrina Kennedy for January’s Challenge. Enjoy!

Oh!! As I was listening to Katrina’s webinar, she mentioned that she uses the Collect app (iPhone only) and the prints the “cards” out at the end of the year. Great idea!

20140104-153734.jpgHere’s an example of my pic in the app. (As soon as I get to my phone I will post the flipside of this “card”. ) I think it’s pretty cool. Oh! This app is free but  this font only comes with a $1.99 purchase. I think it’s worth it for something that I’ll be using daily. Afterall, I found much more than that while doing my laundry this morning.

 

Capture Your 365: 1-4

So I have decided to participate in Capture Your 365. Last year (and probably the one before) I made all kids of excuses as to why I could not participate and the main one being that I didn’t have the “right” camera. Well, I still don’t. As I listened in on the webinar on New Year’s Day, I realized that my iPhone would have to do. And so it is! New camera gods, are you listening?

Day One: Celebrate. I took this pic at night and at that point, I’d had had my fill of alcohol. Juice and my favorite snack (brown sugar & seasalt- flavored seaweed) would have to do.

Day 2: Goals. Here are just a few promises I made to myself. I’ve since added more. There’s something really exciting about starting a new journal and doodling. 🙂

Ironically, that day (yesterday) was a SNOW DAY!!! However, we aren’t big on playing in the cold. My youngest daughter went out in her pjs to kick the snow with her bare feet. The silliness we attempt as kids… Anyway, I wished I’d taken a picture of that but it all happened so quickly. She figure out that it wasn’t as exciting as she’d originally thought. So my winter sport consisted of staying in bed with my laptop, journal and books [insert warm beverages as need] in relax mode. That is one of my favorite (seasonal) Bath and Body Works candle scents in Flannel here (which I cannot find in a larger size). However, Mahogany Teakwood is the best by far. here Remember: Go online to get coupons B&BW always has specials and/or a great sale. 20140104-153954.jpgDay 4: A Little Bit. A little bit of beans and greens …and water make a great lunch. I am trying to eat a bit healthier to meet my nutritional goals. My water intake has increased as well. I am making an effort to make proper choices. Does that equate to deprivation? Not at all! I just need to add healthier options to my diet.

Care to join me?

Meditation Music: All Of Me

This is such a beautiful song. I listen to it frequently and have probably posted it before. Enjoy it anyway. LOL.

“All Of Me”

[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh
