Do you meditate? I use the Headspace app on my phone and try to do 10 minutes every day. It does seem that when I meditate regularly that I am better able to handle stress. I also find that I can calm myself down in stressful situations by using some of the techniques that I've learned, like focusing on the breath. I also love the guy's voice. So, does Coco. Anytime I start meditating, she appears out of nowhere. I was meditating the other day, when I heard a rustling behind me. I turned around and found her in the bookshelf behind my chair!
Of course, I had to stop meditating and run and get my camera. In case you are looking at my cookbook titles and thinking there doesn't seem to be many big names in there, this is my auxiliary bookcase. I have a main bookcase that holds the cookbooks that I cook with regularly. This olds those that I use less frequently. Yes, I have two bookcases of cookbooks. Don't judge.
Still keeping with the cooking trend here, the dining room table is where I sit to plan the grocery list and next week's menu. I use my Macbook because I use Eat Your Books to access an index of my cookbooks. I was busy making my list, when I realized that I hadn't seen Luxie for awhile. I closed my laptop and there she was. Curled up perfectly on my laptop case!
It's like it was made for her! Just the right size.
For my artsy photo this week, I used Topaz Labs Plugin.
