Day 136: My favorite place to relax at work and daydream.

Day 140: After a great mini trip I came home not feeling 100%.  Tea and crackers helps soothe me. Little did I know what was ahead of me at this time.

Day 141: Usually a walk helps to clear my mind and makes me feel better. Found these gorgeous flowers on my walk.
