Valentine's Day and Other Goodies

Recently I started reading the OptiMystic's Handbook by Terry Lynn Taylor and Mary Beth Crain. I love their way of thinking. It talks about Optimysticism. According to the book,
Optimysticism is the choice we make not only to experience the best of this world but also to see beyond this world, into eternity, and in doing to live the mystery to the fullest here on earth.
It is very interesting, and reminds everyone the best way to look at life in part is through the eyes of a child among other things. It is worth reading.

I also published another article, Role Model: Lois Lane of Smallville.

For Valentine's Day my boyfriend and I shared in the preparation of our special dinner. He cooked us a flank steak, and I cooked up some Earthy Mashed Potatoes and vegetables. This is our second time having these potatoes and they are excellent.

For dessert I had a Vanilla Bean Cupcake from Starbucks. I would have loved to have one of their red velvet cupcakes but there were none available. The cupcakes are scrumptious. I am not a big dessert person, but the Red Velvet Cupcakes are definitely to die for.

I also purchased this mug. I have wanted one of their state/country mugs for a while. When I stumbled upon this mug I knew it was a keeper. I just had to have it.

My boyfriend is an artist and loves to use his pencils to the very end. Here is a page with some of his artwork. He went to design school. I am so bad I hate it when I lose a pencil or pen. I am the same way but I am the writer. He introduced me to a new toy to add to my pencil collection.

General's "The Miser" Pencil Extender. I bought it online on Ebay. It is very handy. They sell them in Arts and Crafts Stores and Artists stores. I wish they sold them in stationary stores.

That is all for now, until next time.
