Houston, we have success!

I'm sitting here listening to Albanian music again, trying to ignore my numb fingers while I'm typing. I practiced guitar for probably a half an hour, maybe more, which now constitutes the third time I have done so this week. I heard that if you practice every day you will build up callouses, and then it will stop hurting so much. My problem right now is trying to switch between different chords quickly, but I'm sure it will come. I have learned about six different chords, and I am excited because I was able to play one of my favourite praise and worship songs from Hillsong. So even though my fingers hurt, I feel like I am getting some where, finally :) I haven't played piano in a while, which I miss, but at least I am playing some sort of instrument. I have wanted to play guitar for the longest time, but just have not applied myself. Hopefully I can keep this up, and get better!

I have to work later this afternoon for three hours. I am excited to meet my other coworkers that were hired while I was in the hospital and recovering. It should be interesting.

So, I think I successfully killed my chocolate craving. Last night I bought President's Choice Chocolate chip cookies, which are pretty much my favourite store bought cookies, and I ate the whole first row in one sitting. They were so delicious, and I don't regret one moment, although my hips might regret it later!

I hope you all have a great day.

Love, Ashleigh


Discovery and Recovery....

So I found out something about myself. If I wash my bedding, and then go to bed, I physically cannot get up the next morning unless I have somewhere to be. It's like my body loves lying in freshly laundered sheets, and just wants to enjoy it for a while. I think it's the weirdest thing, and kind of frustrating too. It's not like I am being lazy. I just could not get up. But I do love the smell, and the feel of washed fabrics. It is so comforting and clean.

At least the sun is shining today. I have not been outside yet, but it looks like a wonderful day.

Last night I went out for dinner with some friends, and then ice cream afterwards. I ate so much food, though, that my stomach was going to explode, and then I got really sleepy. It was strange, but happens all the time. I enjoy hanging out with my friends, but I miss the ones back home, and my family.

Hope you all have a great day, enjoy the sunshine!

Love, Ashleigh


A New Week...

I am looking forward to starting a new week, a new month, a new everything. I feel like last month was not productive in the least, but I think it was good too, in the sense that it was restful.

I really don't have much to write about today. But it's the first day of June :D And the wind is whipping through the trees and it's not sunny. Oh well :)

I am hoping to visit my fam this month-i miss them a lot!

Love, Ashleigh
