Intense Love and the February Desktop

Sketchbook & February Desktop

First I made a mostly turquoise painting to use as February's desktop. Turquoise is my "go to" color of choice. But for February? I headed back to the drawing board and gave this quote a tweak.

Much better.

Add pretty kraft paper and a few flowers and you've got a new desktop. Quote courtesy of Mother Teresa. Click the above image or here to download. Please remember that this is for personal use only.

Hard Drives and Hot Toddies

My Sketchbook: Hot Toddy Recipe

I was off the grid this week - literally. My hard drive died and, even though I'd repeatedly backed up my data, panic and running amok ensued. Tears were shed. The sky was falling.

Not sure why it took an entire week to fix though it may have had something to do with my hard headedness and unwillingness to hand over my computer. At any rate, the entire week was a wash.

Which leads me to the crux of today's post...hot toddies. I think, no I know I'm in love with this soothing gift from heaven.

Here's what you do to cure all ails - be they colds or failed hard drives.

Hot Toddy

In a mug add (in this order)
1 tbs. of honey - don't skimp to try to save calories. just don't.
Squeeze 1/4 lemon and drop in.
Top with one shot of whiskey.
Add to that 8 oz. of very hot water then stir it well.
Add your tea bag. I used black tea.
Wait a few.

Enjoy. Breathe deeply. Relax.
Repeat if necessary.
