November 8th – “Get ready to greet a brand-new day.”

Yesterday’s horoscope advised me to, “think twice before hitting send.”  I wanted to follow up with some networking contacts, but decided to wait a day. Mondays are not good days to send emails anyway because people are usually swamped after weekends. According to some studies, Tuesdays mornings are the best time and day. I already received one response so I think those studies are right!

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’m ready to greet the new day!

To start off my new day, I switched out my warm weather clothes for winter wear. I found this shirt from last year. Is November too early to wear a Christmas shirt?

I didn’t think too hard about it because my zodiac reading told me that it wasn’t time to relax yet:

Despite all your various successes, remain coolheaded and continue to work relentlessly.

I have a stack of books to read, applications to work on, and paintings to paint. To help me get through the day I made some almond thumbprint cookies filled with blueberry, apricot, and rhubarb jam.

This is one of the easiest recipes I make. Sometimes I substitute more almond and oat flour when I don’t have regular flour. It turns out great each time! If you’re busy and pressed for time, I highly recommend it. It’s hard to mess up and is sweetened by maple syrup.
