I spent a little time last night working out a new recipe for the mocha tofu pudding. What’s different? Double the espresso. 

And am I using post-lunch dessert as an excuse to test the caffeine-fueled recipe results right now, on this busy busy Tuesday?

Why yes! Yes I am.

Fun at Work

One weird thing about working alone? You tend not to smile as much because there’s no one to smile at. To avoid muscle atrophy (and general Tuesday-ness), I try to think about fun things like cookies or double rainbows or a good book.

Cat videos work too;)

Me Today

It’s Tuesday and I’m balancing multiple project deadlines, staying one step ahead of potential disaster (much like this aerial acrobat, but with a tad less flexibility)!

Hope you are too:)

That I Can Do

Hmm, Tuesday. What to write?

Do I have a draft of anything started?

(checks draft folder) No.

Do I have an idea for an interesting topic? Sure. Time to expand on it? Not so much.

New experiments in food and/or art?

Nothing ready to share.

Cute pictures of the cat?

No. Let’s face it, our cat is more fiend than fluff ball.

Inspirational quote about work plus adorable stock imagery?

That I can do.

I’ve probably used this quote before. Still relevant!

“Try looking at your mind as a wayward puppy that you are trying to paper train. You don’t drop-kick a puppy into the neighbor’s yard every time it piddles on the floor. You just keep bringing it back to the newspaper.”

Today, work work work. 

Did I wake up tired? Did I procrastinate a little too much? Does everything I say or do today seem not quite right? 


No matter.

It’s time to work. It may not be the fun kind, but it is the kind worth doing.
