I woke up this morning feeling blue. Nothing is really wrong. It's just the whole empty nest thing seems to hit me especially hard some days. Here's what I've done to cheer myself up:

First a lovely cup of Hazelnut coffee with a dash of cream.
Not half and half or any of those chemical laden powdered creamers, but real, luscious, rich cream.

Next I ran a hot bath and crumbled in a large of piece of a bubble bar. This one was milk bar that I purchased at Lush. It smelled divinely!

After I got out from the bath, I did my my Bible study. I must say, that since I bought an old study Bible and began coloring in it with my colored pencils, I have looked forward to my Bible studies a bit more.

 When I was done I began listening to Anne of Green Gables.  It's really hard to be sad while listening to a story like that.  All sweetness and joy.  I think we need a lot more books like that, today. Don't you?

Breakfast sounded appealing today, so I had bacon and eggs.  I always feel better with a full stomach.

And now I am sitting on the couch in the den with my dog beside me.  I don't know that I am cheery enough to do cartwheels, but I do feel much better.

What do you do to chase away the blues?
