Chia pudding

I was in the store yesterday and found some chia seeds and wanted to experiment.
So I made this last night and had it for breakfast.

I was a little scared about the texture but I really liked it! I used the proportions in the recipe on the chia seeds, milk, and vanilla but didn't think it needed to be any sweeter so I skipped the honey. I topped it with fresh blueberries and it was wonderful!

 Projects I have been working on and finally finished!

Sometimes projects take longer then they should, like quite a few months of being in pieces in a box, but once it comes together it is really exciting!

361 things

The new count as of tomorrow is 361 things!  So proud of myself and excited to feel more peace.  The less things I have to keep track of the more I find time to read a book or actually work on a project instead of just packing around things for projects and never working on them. 

I have been loving the CLAN library system.  I have access to pretty much all the libraries in Northern Nevada and can get most any item (movie or book) that I have an interest in and have it delivered to the Carson library for my convenient pick up... AND I don't have to store the books at my house which is a big plus! Don't get me wrong because I love books but I was finding that they were taunting me from everywhere in my house.  The cookbooks that I never used but had 6, the 2 shelves of church related books, the 3 shelves stories of which I re-read instead of picking a new one, etc.  There they would sit almost accusingly as I then chose the library book to read instead.  Gone is the guilt of not reading them and instead replaced by the excitement of a new book.

(FYI I still have 75-100 books (that I feel are not taunting me) after getting rid of almost 200  between last year and this project so I am not completely book free)
