I've been watching the inaugural today, and I have had a hard time keeping the tears back. I feel so proud! But I am a big President Obama Fan!!! And, I think Michele is just the classiest... and a beautiful First Lady. My heart feels good today.
On another note, I've been a little busy lately. I'm ready for spring, though. :) It's drab and cold outside today, so I'm trying to keep the sun shinning in my heart and mind.
I have been working on a visual wall that goes to my basement. I am wallpapering it with pretty visual images from magazines. I thought what the heck, if I don't like it or if it doesn't work I can take it down and paint. Well, I'm loving it! I didn't want to make put extra pressure on myself, so just working on it when I have time and feel like working on it. Now I have to get the ladder to finish the top and move a shelf loaded with books to complete the bottom. I have small wall opposite it that I am thinking of making it a wall of quotes and poetry, (just writing them on with a sharpie). You all know how I love quotes. :)

It just makes me feel really good when I look at it. :)
I had mentioned that I wanted to start yoga and meditation. Well, let me tell you about it, I did and I LOVE it. Omg, why did I procrastinate for so long? The first few days, I thought I can't do this, but I've come a long way, baby, with a long way to go. But some of it is starting to feel really good when I do it. I can almost touch my head on my knees. YEAH!!! And I bought a couple of audio books to listen to at night, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Wayne Dyer. I can't tell you how much I love both of them. Also, I used to listen to Yanni a lot, I found him to be so comforting and soothing to listen to, not to mention that I am in love with him. In my next life...he is all mine. LOL
Made some mini banana muffins yesterday. Haven't made them in a long time, forgot how good they are. I usually add nuts, didn't have any, they were still delicious.

I followed this recipe exactly, just did not add the crumb topping.
A few inspirational quotes. Was playing with my phone the other night after going to bed and got a few pictures to use for some awesome quotes.
