Slowly but surely...

I'm getting along with my list. I'm very good at making sure to take my 35 min nap every day. I'm also good at enjoying my morning quiet time & only missed 1 day of workout, so that's something. I have to be honest & realistic with myself because I expect that I should just magically do all the things I list, but it's called a Journey for a reason & these things take time. 

I am working on making a meal plan with those fancy books pictured above. That is, if I can stop distracting myself with EVERYTHING else. Ugh... Growing up and being the person I am expecting myself to be is very challenging.

And there is the truth. As a friend mentioned to me earlier this month when I was complaining about my birthday, I grew up long ago. The problem lies in the fact that I have a list of expectation for myself. So in fact, it's all in my head and that's ok. I'm working through it.

Happy Sunday.

A little food and a good book

After a very fun (oh so long) day I arrived home to find that a new book was waiting for me on the front step. I couldn't wait to tear open the package. Our home was unusually quiet so I thought I would treat myself to a couple Ruben Rolls while I read.

I have the best memories of my Aunt Mimi making these for me during high school.  This fact brought on the desire to do a little recipe sharing. It's my first share so if you do make them, please let me know what you think (raises eyebrows in a hopeful manner) * everything in green denotes the product I use

Ruben Rolls

1/4 lb.     Corned Beef                               (Boars Head deli meat - shredded)
1/3lb.      (8 Slices) Swiss Cheese             (Boars Head deli  - thin Lacey Swiss)
1/3 C       Thousand Island dressing          (Annie's Organic)
1/2 C       Sauerkraut                                 (Boars Head
1 tube (8) Natural Crescent Roll dough     (Immaculate Baking Co.)

Put one teaspoon of thousand island dressing on the middle of crescent roll.

Add meat and sauerkraut.


Roll and place.


 Roll some more and nicely pull the wide ends over the side and secure on top by pressing down just a little.

Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden brown.


We have also made some amazing rolls like this using Boar's Head Smoked Gouda, 
shaved hard salami & crescent rolls.  So Yummy.

Kelly Love

A Magical Journey 

It paints my room a grey blue
  then slowly begins to peel
      Dancing, soul moving in a
       white linen dress adhorned with a blue lace neckline
              Bare feet praising painted toes
                    Drying flowers hanging in the corner
                         A hint of Eucalyptus, Jasmin,
                            Lavender floating through  like a feather
                                Old barn knoted wood flooring
                                     White wooden bench
                                       quietly, slowly peeling
                                             Clothes line in the background
                                                daily sheets freely dancing along
                                                      Peering through the window
                                                           Fields of green grass waving
                                                             as far as the eye can see
                                                                Wild flowers perfectly, simply
                                                                     A ferris wheel on the horizon

Be True

This picture is very inspiring to me today. A simple reminder to be true to oneself.
To imagine, to grow, to dream, to reach, to live & to love.

A Peaceful Night

Perfect night.
Stolen kisses.
Pen, just right.
Blank canvas.
Music dancing.
Paint brushes feeling empty.
Fingers dance across a page.
Hanging aprons receiving praise.
Love flowing in and out.
Shared breath.
Lights out.
