Tuesday Tip--Take it Easy

Have you ever taken an unintentional blogging break and then felt both more attached to life but also really missed blogging? That's how I've felt these past several days. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoyed a little time off to be with your families, eat turkey for any and every meal, and catch up on some (probably unnecessary) TV and films. We did Thanksgiving with a few friends at our place and it was awesome. But more on that later.

Only one week and two days left of classes and then some finals and this semester is over. I have a small mountain of assignments to finish, but I am actually looking forward to working on most of them (perhaps school has already melted my brain.) Coming back from the Thanksgiving break makes getting things done a bit of push though. I'm a girl who likes to stay active even on vacation but sleeping in and staying up late is a pretty addictive habit. So my goal over the next few weeks is to get everything done but in the least stressful way possible. Reading is one of my biggest escapes/rewards during busy times.

What do you do to relax?

P.S. In case any of you have fallen prey to the sickness of the season, try lemon honey tea. No recipe, just water, lemon and honey to taste. My mom used to make it for me and now Nick does.


  1. I love honey & lemon tea too, my gran passed it onto my dad & my dad passed it onto us. I drink it all the time (its really refreshing in the mornings) but it's also great at getting rid of sickness, for added health benefits I add green tea too!
    Good luck with all of the assignments! :)

  2. Glad you had a break! The honey and lemon tea sounds fabulous, too. I have had a scratchy throat for weeks.

  3. Add a little ginger to that tea and I'm all over it. :)

    I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Although it wasn't a holiday in Canada, I took an extra day off from the blog over the weekend, as well. And, yes, you're totally right, it does feel good to take a step away and just enjoy a day.

  4. I always thought it was so difficult to have the holidays right at the end of the fall school semester. It's so good to remember to take some time for yourself.

  5. I take a bath to relax. Every single day.

    Those are the prettiest of pictures and I hope you start feeling better.

  6. i need more wooden instruments in my kitchen. it's so timeless and classy.

    (and i always miss blogging when i step away)


Thanks for your nice words. I appreciate them so much.
