April Bucket List

A few much simpler things on my bucket list this month. Easter Dinner will be the biggest event if I know my daughter, the rest is fun stuff.

1) Professional Mani and Petti: It will take 1/3 of the money I have left after the bills but I really need one. I figure if they do the basic work then upkeep will be much simpler.
2) Easter Egg Nails: I also want to paint my nails like this so a manicure is a necessity
3) Have a Spring Picnic: I haven't put this on the schedule yet but plan to go around this time next month as the warm weather should be here by then.
4) Make Lavender Lemonade: I am so curious about drinks made with lavender that I may try a Lavender Latte and a couple of other recipes during the month
5) Make a Herb Garden: I have this medium size fish tank and the other things I need to turn it into a small garden so I figured I'd make it a Herb garden with a few basics in it.
6) Drink Easter Coffee: I keep seeing references to this so I'm looking for the recipe. If you know one, please share
7) Play in the Rain: Sounds kinda silly but I need to remind myself of who I used to be so on one of those rainy days I'm going to go splash in puddles & dance in the rain because I can
8) Go on a scavenger hunt: I mentioned this earlier this week, I will take my phone and go on a walk taking pictures for one of the scavenger lists I have on the board
9) Make a wind chime: I have some old fashioned nails and some bells I've been meaning to combine into a chime, this month I want to actually get it done
10) Buy a house plant: Along with the herb garden I want to get either an aloe vera or a spider plant or both if I can afford them
11) Shop the Farmers Market: I do not know if they will be outside yet but I hope so, I'll be checking for the two downtown every week since they are the closest.
12) Easter with my family: I rather hope there won't be a big dinner but if there is I will go, all I really want is to spend a day outside with my family enjoying the spring weather

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
