MERCI BEAUCOP

About two and some weeks ago my manager said, “I have something for you!” I thought oh ok no big thing…thought it was a project. When you least expect it things happen. A thank very much gift. Appreciation goes a long way and this reminds me keep going.

Start of my week- Monday INSTApic

Yesterday started off really nice–woke up sore from my training sessions.  Received this lovely card from my friend Jenny in the mail.  She never seems to fail me with her words of encouragement and the timing is just PERFECT.  Blessed to have a friend like you in my life and YES 2 years out of school and we are still keeping in contact STRONG!  Distance shouldn’t be a problem for any KIT.  I love quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson and especially this one.  Thank you JENNY for starting my week JUST right!  All photos taken with iPhone 4.

During my lunch break I ended up at Wassabi for happy hour with a co-worker.  I was enjoying my hot water (as it was soo chilly outside even with the sun beaming) in this ceramic white teapot and teacup.

Before heading back to work there was a small park nearby and we went for a stroll.  The flowers, blue sky, and the clouds were just lovely!

Thenadays- Hint of teal here and there.

A week in NY on Long island with my lovely friend Kaci. The Nursing school journey ended and we were starting the real life. In the moment we were searching for our nursing job and applying like a mad woman. Moment of editing the small changes here and there for our resumes. In between it all, I decided to visit Kaci and explore the inner towns of New York and she took me around Long Island. One place I got to experience was her family’s cottage in Breezy Shores in Green Port, NY. My was this place a small cute village with about 20 cottages. Meals and wine during the day with the breezy wind from the shore–just what the name had to offer. Photos taken by yours truly–Nikon D80 with 50mm lens. YES, I do love my 50mm lens out of my collection of lens. There was a hint of teal in my Long Island collection. Enjoy…the hint of teal here and there.

It was relaxing just as the photo above portrays. We were watching the sailboats racing with one another across the shore. It was much needed after a few years of craziness from Nursing school. I was always reminded by my dear Kaci to relax and this was something that was not in my everyday life while in Nursing school. You better bet I have learned what it really means to RELAX and take time for myself. YOU shall do the same. Happy Thursday and go take time to RELAX today!

BLACK and WHITE.

Today is a gloomy day with a bit of drizzle of rain.  Our  Tuesday traipse. While walking Remsen I captured the nature surrounding us.  (Remsen: a frenchie I am dog-sitting; post on Remsen is on its way) Photos taken with Nikon D80 and Nikkor 35mm.

Have a great Tuesday and I hope your traipse is as joyful today!

Lavender

Herbs used as medicine is something I believe in.  Growing up mother always used different herbs for scars to cuts.  It put wonders in my little mind and as I continue to get older it became a part of my nature to be curious and continue researching.  One of the few bunches I love is Lavender.   Lavender is used as a remedy to treat insomnia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.  Research has proven when lavender’s scent is inhaled it produces slight calming, soothing, and sedative effects.

Do you have a herb(s) you use as medicine?
