Where's my Post?

Hey Everyone, 

I was about halfway through writing my post on Boundaries: Part 2 for today when a whole bunch of life happened. 

Instead I'll leave you with how I coped with my weekend! 

1. I channeled my excess energy into 3 really great workouts at the gym. 

2. I stopped my obsessive ruminating thoughts and kept my boredom in check by engaging my creativity. I pulled out a few canvases and my acrylics and spent about 10 hours painting while trying to stop the kitten from adding her own helpful creative inspirations (read: paw prints) to my work. 


This is actually still an unfinished version. I cleaned it up A LOT and added more depth. 

3. Then I managed to round up a handful of friends for a Sunday evening Dr. Who Marathon. Sorry Mr. Tennant, I think Matt Smith has my heart as The Doctor. As has been typical of me these last few weeks I've been obsessed with making breads. Sunday I made Parmesan Scones with Caramelized Onions. I made a lot. They were absolutely irresistible. Keeping busy always helps me. 

Parmesan Scones with Caramelized Onions

Week Before: Cheesy Casatiello Bread stuffed with cheddar and gouda

Week Before That: Cranberry-Walnut Celebration Bread

What do you do to keep you mind occupied and in a better place? 


  1. I used to drink a lot which led to complete insanity. Now...I dont know what I like anymore. Its sad when I think about it

  2. On healthy days, I clean or write or read...something to get off the hamster wheel. On less than healthy days, I have a drink or two & hide in a romance novel.

    I might have to adopt the painting, baking & good tv show habit, tho.

  3. Hey You!

    Been writing a lot… thanks for the motivation. I haven't been writing nearly as much as you've been doing everything else! I love that painting… chance of doing prints?

    1. Hey There. I'll have to update with a finished and MUCH better pic, but I could definitely do prints. I'll upload them to my Store and let you know when it's ready.

  4. Holy Hell Haven I love that painting.. .I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Glad you're keeping yourself busy!

  5. The painting is beautiful.
    I enjoy reading the thousands of books I started. I love your blogs when I need to keep my mind occupied and informed.

  6. Haven you are so talented in so many areas, it is mind boggling. Everyone here can see you're super butt amazing, also I need that cheese bread.... and your painting. Fed ex will be fine.

  7. Oh and I like the fact that you are including more personal pictures.


Leave me a comment! It makes me feel good and less paranoid about talking to myself =)
