Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Nifer Roses & Thorns Debut!

Welcome to my new Friday post series: Roses & Thorns a la K.Law: Inspired! Words cannot express how much I love Kristen and her hilarious blog. She's funny, she's kind, she's hard-working, she's purdy, and she's got a big heart. Plus, I envy her cuz she lives in the Sunshine State of warmness and beaches! Well... according to her, it's pretty cold there now, but that's an exception!

Here's my first stab at R&T; be kind, it is my first post. And don't forget to check out K.Law's post too!

Roses to the weekend after what has felt like a long week (two two-day work weeks made this seem like eternity)!

Roses to snowflakes outside my window (it looks like a snow globe for real)!

Roses to possibly skiing Sunday morning.

Roses to the Patriots in the play-offs. GO PATS!!!

Roses to sticking to my menu plans for dinner this week... with one tiny exception for Walt's roast beef sandwiches Wednesday night cuz I didn't feel like cooking...

Roses for finally getting the oil in my car changed tonight.

Thorns to not finding ski boots last weekend in tax-free NH and having to visit REI tomorrow to try on more boots.

Thorns to driving all the way into the office Wednesday for nothing.

Thorns to taking Christmas decorations down tomorrow. : (

Thorns to not sticking with my Yoga workout this week.

Thorns to cancer and other terminal illness.

Thorns to Jed working 12+ hour days for the next two or three months.

This reminds me of wag of the finger tip of my hat that Colbert does. Love it. Especially because it feels good to complain some times.
