Today has been chilly and wet outside. I am terribly glad I reached for the polo neck, black sweater and shawl this morning. I may have overslept and woken up thinking of what would not need ironing, so it was a blessed coincidence.
Work is going great, I had a sit-down with a previously feuding colleague and Ted talks are keeping me inspired. Plus, I managed to sell my first box of Organo Gold Coffee. I can’t wait for the end of the month to see how much I will have banked from sales and such. Otherwise, I am already making headway. That isn’t to say that I will not be on a deliberate shoe-string budget, as my mother calls it. Neither does it mean that I will not go shopping for a few new official pants for work, hopefully with Lisa who is off hiking some mountain in this beautiful country of ours. Last I checked, a few hours ago, she was both thrilled and scared.
Speaking of TedTalks, I found this lovely spoken word performance on Social Media rather clever and sadly true for many people. If you’re up for a few more Unplug Days on your calendar, you will obviously enjoy Look Up. Watch, listen, learn and for Heaven’s sake please apply.

I always look forward to reading from A Beautiful Mess, so I thought to share the amazing posts on a rope rag you can make yourself, a vinaigrette recipe and a hobo bag. It’s all here.
Lastly, I feel absolutely connected to a blogger I just met whose introduction and blog name had me thinking of myself. I turn 26 towards the end of July and it’s a little bitter sweet for me. Bitter mostly because I will no longer say that I am in my mid-twenties; since I will have crossed over the middle. Sweet because growing older has allowed me to develop a deeper and more fulfilling appreciation for things I took for granted as a teen. I therefore invite you to read the backstory to the blog Young and Twenty. I recall there being a TedTalk about thirty NOT being the new twenty, but I’ll leave the Youtube search to the curious
P.S. Remind me to share a few more food posts before the week ends. Okay? Thanks 🙂
