7 Quick Takes # 41

Things I will not do: ask for favors. I don't ask for help even when I really need it which is something I am working to overcome.

Things I will do: anything that anyone else needs. Ask and it's yours if it's within my power to give it to you.

Something I haven't done in a long time that I miss: cross stitching. My aunt Wilma taught me how when I was 5 and I have several kits at home waiting to be made but I never seem to have the time or the energy to work on one of them. This makes me sad.

Something I am determined to do more of: Take time for me. Whether that is coloring or drawing or painting or reading or writing or the above mentioned cross stitch or just sitting back watching the wind blow with a cup of coffee in my hand, I vow to do more for me for self care.

Favorite smart phone game: I love Candy Crush and Word streak (formerly scramble with friends) and the game 2048 (even though I have yet to win with that one.)

The last person I talked on the phone with was April. We had an hour long conversation about everything under the sun. I miss being able to talk to her for hours on end. This is what happens when you both have lives and things going on.

Goal for next week: finish the book I am currently reading.
