Peppermint Tea and reading

I woke up this morning with a slight sore throat.  So after I got my day going, kids off to school, breakfast cleaned up, I went right back up to bed with some peppermint tea.



I got a blanket around my shoulders and put another one over my legs and got comfortable with some of the books and magazines that I am studying or have read over the last year.  These are books and scriptures that have been guiding my thoughts and direction the last few months.



I couldn’t start my day off better than reading some scriptures and studying Preach My Gospel and a conference talk from The Ensign.  Starting this blog was inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project and Happier at Home.  I have been trying to discover some of my dreams and then pursue them.  Dare, Dream, Do by Whitney Johnson has been a guide in doing that.  Katrina Kenison’s book The Gift of an Ordinary Day inspires me about home and the beauty of family and every day life.  I am thinking of drinking more smoothies, green and fruit ones, inspired by Real Moms Love to Eat and Prevention magazine.  Just a few books and topics on my mind.  Nice to have a quiet morning to read and ponder and think.
