Morning Scones With Da

This past weekend Paul made scones for us. He loves scones and has learned to make some of the best chocolate chip scones I've ever had. Tyler is still enjoying the old tea set he found in my childhood dish cabinet. So it was Tea and Scones with "Da" (Tyler's name for his grandfather).

A New Year, An Old Dilemma

So here we are in January 2011. I have not made any official New Year's Resolutions, but I do have something I very much want to accomplish this year (and forever). I want to spend more time doing self-care/pampering and more time making my home a lovely place. Time is one of the difficulties, but in all honestly I waste a ton of it on stupid things like dopey TV shows, computer solitaire, and other stuff like that.

I have this dream vision. In the vision I am the type of person who relishes exercise, is rested and well turned out fashion and make-up-wise, makes a little sanctuary of peace and beauty in her home, and spends time creatively (music, sewing, etc.). I do some of these things, some of the time. I don't know why I keep getting in my own way. It is a dilemma.

So my goal or resolution for this year is to try and be that woman I described above, the majority of the time. (Wish me luck - I will surely need it!)
