Good Afternoon Journal & Friends,
Well, I gone an dun it! I started my "collection". It's all Anne's fault... err... due to her influence. See, one of my favorite blogs is Anne, at Carb Tripper. And one thing I've noticed over the past couple of years in her photos is the beautiful assortment of little plates she uses. She has an amazing collection. Oh, and Lisa at my favorite RECIPE place, 24-7 Low Carb Diner does that too!
So... yep, I decided to spend money on ME... ! and start my own collection of one-of-a-kind little plates AND little tea cups.
But before the tea cups, I went to my favorite online tea place... Republic of Tea and got their 20oz Personal Carafe. Ooh la la! I'd never used one before, and hoped it kept the tea warm for at least an hour. Well! Hello 2 1/2 hours of hot tea! I got the ruby red one, just because.
I decided to pop in occasionally at places like the Goodwill to look for pretty teacups. Here is the first of many.
And Anne's little plates that started it all? Yep, here are the first for my new collection.
I decided I was worth something special, and to not feel guilty about it or apologize. Though I will admit, I did spend time "justifying" my expenditure to MyGuy. Oh well... progress not perfection, yes?
From Dr Phil's book: "This is about you, your weight, and your health; it is not about them."
My verse for today: "Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you."

Enjoy the Journey,
