monday mood lifters – February 4

Here they are….

Monday Mood Lifters

1. I managed to get all of my empty picture frames filled with pictures of Ben. Now they are scattered all over my apartment and I no longer have empty frames staring at me.


2. I have rediscovered the coping skill of coloring and I have a book of stained glass Mandalas I have been coloring. When they are finished they look like this and I hang them in my window.


3. Learning why my favorite artist Kelly Rae Roberts tips some of her angels heads and not others. I love, love, love her things. Here is the link to that article. And here is my pieces of her collection.


4. My new bird from Beth to keep me company at night – Midge.


5. My new budget App (Home Budget Lite) and the fact that for the first time in my life I actually have a budget and I’m following it. It makes me feel much less guilty when I spend money.

6. The organization Sevenly which each week picks a cause or charity and then sells shirts that benefit that organization. I have bought shirts to help raise money for service dogs, wells in Africa and this week burn victims. Check them out!

7. The fact that this happened last night. A grown man making a confetti snow angel? Yes. Hilarious.


8. This song covered on Glee. How beautiful and appropriate for the storyline for Marley (she has an eating disorder).

9. This:

10. And of course Benny….

    Ok, LOVE the pics of you and Ben… I am bias… 🙂

    This list makes me so happy! I had not seen the confetti snow angel even though we watched the game with friends yesterday and that also became a highlight in my day. Share your art with the shut-ins at church if you find you are running out of space at your house. I know they would love it! And, be well…you are Amazing!!!

  3. My first observation: Wow! Kansas is flat! haha I am definitely a New Englander

    I love all of the pictures of you and Benny. You are quite beautiful and Mr. Ben is pretty handsome.

    I am loving these Monday Mood Lifters! I might have to copy that idea on my blog 😉

  4. This blog was worth waiting for, also enjoyed thepictures of the artists work. I love the idea of Monday (or any day) mood lifters. I think I might try putting mine on paper as a reminder. The pic of you and Ben is so good–love your eyes. Keep up your projects for your apartment…..I really like the stained glass wall hanging you asre

  5. Where did you find the gif of the confetti snow angel? When I saw it happen, I said to my sister, “I need this in a gif so I can watch it over and over and over again!” It makes me SO happy.

    Also, I, too, have recently begun doing the very adult thing of budgeting and sticking to a budget. It feels a little weird, but I’m really proud of myself for doing it. 🙂

  6. Loved this post
    Especially the doggy pics
    I have 2 dogs and they have saved my life over and over again
    When I can’t find a reason to get out of bed, I get up for them
    When I just want to hide in my house, I leave to walk them
    They are rescue dogs that I got when I first tried to get clean off drugs
    They are the best therapy x
