My Snapchat video and daily archive for Sunday, the 21st of March 2016.

Monday’s are my early days, as far as work. I need to be at work by 8am rather than the usual 9am. This means even waking up at 6am is too late on Mondays. Why?

I’ve mentioned this before but, each morning I go through a little morning ritual that I call my “tri-morning routine.” I spend 10 minutes on light exercise, 10 minutes reading, and 10 minutes meditating. This routine usually takes about 45 minutes total, mainly because I keep reading until I’m finished with the article, blog post, or chapter. I do use a timer, by the way.

This morning I was pretty pushed for time and still had to make my coffee and my smoothie. I only had to heat up my soup since I had batched that out for the week on Sunday.

I made my smoothy a little different this morning and used pure peppermint extract as a sweetener. Big mistake. I ruined the smoothie to the point I just poured it down the drain. I poured way too much of the extract in and it was so strong that it actually burned my nasal cavity. LOL My worries, I survived and learned a tiny lesson.

Mid-day I stopped by Walmart in Walled Lake, Michigan to stock my truck up on water and unsweetened flavor packets.

I’ve been getting emails from Dolar Photo Club saying they would close their doors on the 15th of April. I Still have 135 photo credits because I pay by the year. They stopped accepting new members a while back so I had a feeling it was just a matter of time.

The Dollar Photo Club arranged for their members a discounted one-year offer for Adobe Stock Images. I get 10 images for $9.99/month for the first year and was able to transfer my Dollar Photo Club credits over to Adobe. After the first year, that monthly price goes up to their normal fee, which is $29.99/month right now. So I have a year to find another image resource and I’m paying $10/month to keep my 135 photos that I already paid for but it could have been worse.

I missed The Walking Dead again last night so I streamed it tonight. I watched it online and then spent a little time with my two youngest grandsons.

Overall, it was a decent day. Not very productive but decent as far as living life. 🙂

Thanks, and blog on, Brian Hawkins
