Blog challenge - color

Today's blog challenge question:

What color are you grateful for?

I'm grateful for all the colors that came in the pretty makeup palate that came yesterday from Sephora.

That's probably not what the challenge meant, but whatever. Makeup makes me happy.

Just look how pretty!

Blog challenge - smells and technology

I love to write but lately, I haven't had a ton of time. When I do, I'm often uninspired. When I am, it's usually political, and who wants to go there?

I came across a 30-day challenge I haven't seen before, and thought I'd give it a shot. Of course I found it late in the day on November 1, so I'm already behind.

The first challenge? A smell I'm grateful for today. A smell? Really? 

I'm going with the smell of the new evergreen candle I bought over the weekend. Evergreen is my favorite smell, next to lilac. I'll burn evergreen candles all year if I have the chance. The problem is the really good smelling candles are expensive, and I go through them quickly because I warm candles rather than burn (kitties and open flames don't mix well). 

I found this candle on sale at Kohl's and I had Kohl's cash - for which I'm also grateful.

The second challenge? Technology for which I am grateful. 

I'm someone who likes convenience and, in general, am happy to pay for more of it in my life. My most long-standing relationship, outside of the one with my cat, is with my phone. Aside from that, I also love my DVR, which allows me to have actual relationships with actual people, and still not miss out on my relationships with my favorite TV characters. 

Days 1 and 2 - done.
