    It has been a long month.  It has also been a rough month.  I can say that I am grateful that I have some fantastic things that I was really excited about and for.  So today I am going to share with you some of my favs.

Things I Love Thursday: Getting Back on Gratitude

Light purple colored background with sand and green aquamarine dots.  Text in darker purple reads Things I Love Thursday.

     It has been a little rough lately and I skipped my gratitude list last week.  I just really couldn't get in the mood for it.  That happens.  To all of us.  We all have rough spots emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally.  And sometimes several different kinds all at once.  We can't kick ourselves for that.  It is important that we try to be supportive of our own health.   And that can be difficult.  One of the things I do for my own emotional health is gratitude lists.  So I am here on Thursday again to bring you a glimpse of some of the things that have made me happy this week and to remind myself that there is a lot of good things even when I am having trouble not just seeing the negative.

Tea Time Tuesday: Cranberry Lemon Scones

     This week for our tea time baking we decided to try out this scone recipe from Tea Time Magazine.  Raisin-Orange Scones.  Neither of us particularly like the idea of using raisins though and agreed that dried cranberries would taste better.  At least to us.   And with that we each went to work baking these scones for the first time and tasting them with teas of our choice.  See how +Jenn did over on her blog, Just Plum Petite.  Tea Time Tuesday Cranberry Orange Scones

Tea Time Tuesday: Pumpkin Loaf

Words read, "tea Time Tuesday.  Pumpkin Bread" in orange and bright purple over an image of a loaf of pumpkin bread in a glass bread pan.  Two colorful oven mits lay on the stove top beside it.

    Both me and +Jenn have been missing our old Tea Time Tuesday adventures.  We would hang out every week, usually on a Tuesday hence the name, and have tea and try out new things.  We live in different cities now and it isn’t so easy to hang out on a regular basis.  It’s a long way to go on a bicycle.  :p   As such we have decided to try Tea Time Tuesday from a distance.  This week we both tried out a new recipe.   Starbucks Pumpkin Bread.

November Goals 2016

    November is here and with it my goals for the month.  This month I am going to probably try doing a lot of things in addition to these goals.  These will be my top three priorities though.
