    It's been rainy and gray and a hell of a week at work and I was feeling rather blah today. The boys had books due at the library and I had to circle 5 times to find a spot. Immediately upon walking into the library I felt so relaxed. It's not often I go to the library without the kids (in fact we're going back tomorrow as a family!) but I spent about 20 minutes just walking around before I had to go back into the pouring rain. Completely put me in a much better mood.

    So it made me wonder, is there someplace or maybe an activity that is guaranteed to cheer you up? I think for me having my Mom's homade pasta sauce can do it pretty much every time, too!

    Yeah.. there are a certain number of activities that manage to cheer me up, and going to the book store is one of them. I love to just go to Borders and browse (although, I am guaranteed to purchase at least 2 books each time).

    Second, I love going to this day spa in town called Sojourn. The Spanish lady there is so metaphysical and she gives the best facials. In fact, I am in need of one.... hmmmnn... :goodvibe:

    Something about being near water, especially underwater, puts me at ease. It's so quiet underwater. And if you're talking about a water-fall or a river insetead, there's a constant roaring or rippling.

    Under a set of warm covers in a very cold room does it for me too.
