I've had a rough week.
On Tuesday, a wise friend (waving at Katy!) gave me some wonderful advice. She told me to surround myself with things I love. Of course, that includes family and all that, but she also mentioned Victoria magazine. She had no way of knowing how much I love that magazine.
In fact, I love it so much I have notebooks filled with Victoria magazine issues dropped in sheet protectors.
So yesterday, after my CT Scan, I took some magazines and went to lunch by myself (my choice), ate a leisurely lunch and browed through the magazines. Last night, I spent all evening just enjoying my magazines.
I did something else.
I took some of the store ads we've been getting in the mail and cut out the snow scenes (yes, I love snow) and set them aside for a journal.
Have you ever seen the movie THE LAST HOLIDAY with Queen Latifah? I highly recommend it! Such a sweet movie. And in that movie she has a "possibility notebook" filled with pictures and the things she loved or hoped to do or see.
That's what I'm doing. I'm making a "Comfort Notebook," filled with pictures of comforting things--winter scenes, hot chocolate, a blazing fireplace, all that.
Have you ever done anything like that? What do you think of the idea?
