№➆➁ ➹ ☆ Sunday, Monday or Always ☆ ➹ №➆➁

It's a brand new week...this Hades Georgia heat is in no way, shape or form, slowing's still chugging along like a menacing train on slick, black tracks.  I continue to hide in my house in protest. I will not be crippled by Hades heat with it's evil, soggy tendrils creeping after me...ruining my day, mood, hair...general sunny disposition. (Ok, that last one was totally ficticious, but we'll pretend I am super sunny!) 

What is the benefit of all of this in the above paragraph? I create with blind fury. Normally it's winter that has people holed up, cursing the weather and pouting. I can hardly wait for it. I long for it. I realize that I should probably reside in Newfoundland or possibly some remote area in Greenland somewhere. This further confirms my weirdness..I know, yet I do not care. ☺ Plus, it keeps you entertained, so we both win. 

I want to share with you the latest WORKOUT from ScrapFIT...and it's a pretty big deal guys! Not only was the reveal fabulous, there is pretty exciting news to share with you!

*{Another Motivated Monday}*

It's Monday! Usally, I am not too enthusiastic regarding Mondays. I think because it's incredibly overcast and Hades may not reach over 100 dregrees today due to clouds, it has left me downright cheery. If it wasn't like walking out into a shower, (due to the South's *"charming"* humidity),I would probably throw open a window, that's how ridiculously giddy I am over it being cloudy.

Today, will again be a productive day for me, I am finishing up some things and satrting others...a little this, a little that. The mojo has been abundant lately.

ScrapFIT workouts are a great way to keep scrappy mojo going..if you feel as if yours has wandered off somewhere...check out the latest workout:

#71- Home Sweet Home 

Home Sweet Home! We spend many hours at home so lets be sure to surround ourselves with things we love.  This Workout is challenging you to create a paper craft to be displayed in your home! This can be a banner, a unique way to display a photo, anything you can create with paper to be displayed in your Home Sweet Home!

Here's how this workout motivated me:

I hope that you are beating the heat, wherever you are and that you find some time for you this weekend. I will be holed up inside as it's going to be only a mere 103 degrees minus the heat not going outside!(Until like November, I think...seriously.)
