Weekend Refuel

So last night, I caught myself in a funk - not depressed, but empty, purposeless and disconnected and couldn't figure out why.
You know, those days that feel blah - and the nice weather is certainly not to blame.
Once I realized what was happening, I decided to make a list of some things (quick fixes) for getting out of my funk.

*Give myself permission to do nothing and just be.

*Put on some happy music.

*Go for a walk. (It's surprising how much physical activity can lift a funk.)

*Read a good book or see an inspirational movie.

*Take the afternoon off and take a nap.

*Make a list of 10 things you are thankful for.

*Stop worrying about things you have no control over.

*Be here NOW.

Live in the moment.

Hope you get a chance to refuel this weekend. Have a great one, and Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers and mothers-to-be out there! xx

Feline Stories

This is my cat, Molly. Molly has two best friends. Literally.

These cats, neighbour cats, started to stop by and hang out with Molly in our backyard.
I think they are a little more than just friends but hush, that's a secret! ;)

Have a wonderful day. xx

P.S. Molly says...cuddly day! :)

P.P.S. The wonderful Tracy over at Pen and Paper has been writing a short story for a book of cat stories that will raise money for charity. Congrats on the writing project, Tracy! I am so proud of you!
