Free Your Mind!

I've mentioned recently that I have felt overwhelmed.  Today, I decided to step away from the computer for the most part.  After I dropped B boy off at preschool, I came home to do some cooking. 

I cannot even convey how much I did not realize that I missed cooking.  Especially cooking from scratch.   

I turned on Pandora and got busy!
I whipped up a double batch of pumpkin muffins.
I boiled some chicken to make chicken broth and to use the chicken for homemade chicken pot pie.
I got things ready for a salad to go with dinner.
I cut up a pork tenderloin for chops later next week.

My mind felt so free and clear.  I was in such a great mood!  I began to think that maybe social media has been making my brain crazy!  Honestly, when you are on Twitter a lot, you do feel pressure to do things that other bloggers are doing.  I think the pressure sometimes gets to me and I should not let it!

I felt better today than I have in a long time!  I think I will take more time away from social media from now on!


  1. Hey, that's the way I felt when I was cut off the net for several days. All of a sudden I started doing the things I actually also like to do and I even did most of them together with my little guy. You're right, it opens your mind so to speak.

  2. So glad for you! It is nice to put technology away and get back to the basics. :)

  3. Yes! Get back to the basics and live in the moment!


I always love hearing from you!
