Little things...

I have been nursing a nasty cold for the past few days, which essentially involves me feeling both miserable and sorry for myself...it's that horrible cycle of feeling sick, feeling miserable abut feeling sick, feeling miserable abut not being able to anything about being sick, etc. etc., you know what I mean...so by Friday, after spending two solid days in my PJs, grumbling about the state of myself and my health (in my man voice at that) I started thinking about all the little things that actually made me happy that week, instead of miserable...(I guess at this point I should warn you all that this is a bit of a sappy post...so you have now been warned)...to continue, I sat down and took an inventory of all the little, itty-bitty things that make me feel better, comfort me or just plain make me smile while I am feeling uber crappy (family and friends notwithstanding...they go without saying after all...) But you know what? The act of doing this actually made me feel better as well...so I included a list here...it's dedicated to all of you sickies out there, who feel as miserable as I do right now...hope this makes you feel a little better as well...enjoy...
Enjoying some Lady Grey Tea in my vintage Rococo-style cup, gifted to me by my late (and loved) Grandfather...tea always tastes better when served in a pretty tea cup...
My rapidly growing September Issues magazine collection, which frankly I only seem to have time to read when I am sick...still (im)patiently waiting for my Vogue and W Magazine to come...
Going through my lovely new Sephora goodies which I bought during the pre-opening party of the store here in the city...(Yes, I managed to drag my tired and sick butt out for this event!)...
{Lash-defining mascara; Sephora, Lipstick; Sephora Collection LipAttitude-Star, Eye shadow; Tokidoki Polpettina}
Finally finding the perfect containers to store my Nail Polish collection, which has been hiding in random cupboards and drawers around the house...may seem ridiculous to some, but when you are sick it's really the little things that make you happy...
My life saver: Yogi Triple Echinacea Green Tea...not only does this stuff taste amazing, but it soothes your sore throat while boosting the ol' immune system...plus every tea bag comes with it's own inspirational message...this morning's lesson: "Compassion has no limit. Kindness has no enemy"...(sweet, n'est pas?)
Writing little messages on my newly-made blackboard (it used to be a broken mirror)...it's kind of like playing 'teacher' everyday, but without the screaming back-to-school kids...

There you have it...all the little things that made me sane and happy last week...perhaps this week I will compile a new list...hopefully this week I will feel better...sigh...fingers crossed...happy Monday everyone, hope you are all staying healthy and happy...
Love K

I love that idea for storing nail polish! I may just have to try it.
