C is for Cookie

Hey! Hi. You snuck up on me.

Sorry. Just clearing out the cobwebs that have accumulated in the corners of the blog during in my absence. After this year of taking care of the sick animals and some family members I just needed a little break. My energy had run very low and my exhaustion led to a very bleak and dismal outlook on life. If you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all...right?

Now I am starting to recharge my batteries. The week started with a yogi cleanse, which entails kundalini yoga, fresh juices, Chinese herbs and a vegan diet. The cleanse ends on Monday, but my energy has been so much better that I might stay on the vegan path for a little longer. This week has also been all about crafting and getting ready for Halloween.

Last night was our annual Stitch n Witch Halloween party. This year's theme was animal spirit. My animal spirit is Cookie Monster...a real sugar fiend, if you know what I mean, and my worst enemy, which I indulged at every turn since July. It didn't really help my outlook, only momentarily. Yeah, the quick fix and indulgence of sugar sunshine. It didn't leave me very happy for long...just a sugar high and the inevitable crash.

Funny thing is I am currently not eating sugar, so felt chocolate chip cookies are my choice. No sugar and full of fiber! num num num num! Me like cookies!

Glad you stopped by. I have really missed you. Hope to see you again real soon.

From one sugar fiend to another - you are a terrific cookie monster! Love that you are taking the time to cleanse and recharge. It has been a long and eventful year.... Easy to rely on that sugar sunshine....except for the inevitable darkness that follows! Again, one fiend to another!
Thanks for ur craftiness! My two little skelingtons are currently dreaming skelly dreams while snuggling on some super cute skelesocks. Kiss & Hugs!
