Hey there,

Did you have a good day?

How are you?

I’m fine, I had a calm day.

Since I have a few things to show you, lets go straight to my to-do list:

  • Read blogs and comment and be up to date on the ones that I follow; – Still need to do a little of this today!
  • Make a list of all the Awards I need to post; – Didn’t get to it;
  • Unfollow people who never interact with me or haven’t posted in many months, or the ones I always read and comment but don’t do the same for me. I feel bad about this but I spend way too many time reading blogs and people don’t even seem to care that I follow them, so I will only follow the ones I like, the ones that interact with others and myself; – Done, went from following 700 people to following 300!
  • Fold and put away a HUGE load of laundry; – Did about half of it, still need to work on tomorrow;
  • Dry and put away the ton of dishes that I washed yesterday and wash the dirty ones from dinner. Story of my life is laundry and dishes, rinse and repeat! – Done. Not many dirty dishes for tomorrow!
  • Clean the kitchen and the living room, at least; – Cleaned the kitchen, including the oven and dusted the living room. Only need to vacuum living room tomorrow;
  • Take pictures and show you my new dressing table; – Done, will show it below;
  • Wash a few blankets and duvet and pillows; – Only 2 or 3 left to wash;
  • Interact on social media (I always forget to do this. People like whatever I post and I forget to return the attention. This bothers me way too much!! It’s just hard to keep track of everything, you know?) – Didn’t have time for it.
  • Talked to my mom and sister on the phone
  • Answered a bunch of comments and published 3 posts;

Food and water:

  • Lunch: Red lettuce, cucumber and raw onion salad with a little past and ground beef;  One orange; An espresso;
  • Snack one: three of those yogurt/jello thingies. They have about 40 calories each. I didn’t mean to eat 3, I meant to eat 2, but one of them seemed off, so I opened a third one to check it out and then had to eat the three;
  • Snack two: 1 piece of toast, half a mug of milk and coffee;
  • Dinner: 1 piece of toast, some tea with honey and a banana;
  • About 5 cups of water, plus this cup of tea. Not too bad;

I have no appetite today, have no idea why!

I’m grateful for:

  • The amazing weather;
  • Losing weight;
  • Drinking less coffee and milk today and more water;
  • The people that prayed for me when I needed them. Every thing is better now, my family member is still hurting and in a difficult situation, but much better;
  • Talking to my mom and sister;
  • A hot shower;
  • My green clay mask;
  • A happy dog;
  • A clean kitchen and living room;
  • Lovely friends!


My new dressing table:

The dressing table is just Rui’s old desk. I love the color and it fits perfect against one of my bedroom window so I had to re-purpose it.



I bough the mirror and a cheap IKEA blank bench to sit on. Super affordable dressing table. The pictures are not the best, I’ve just realized now. I might take new ones soon.

Some shots of my living room:


I love this towel because my mother-in-law embroidered it for me. She usually does this kind of thing for me as presents and I love them.

What do you think? I know, more pink.
