When I'm hurting, nothing makes me feel better than writing. In fact, I know when something is wrong with me when I wake up early. Strange? Not really. I usually wake up around 11 PM and I lounge around in bed until 12 or later. However, today I woke up at 8:30 AM and for the life of me, I could not fall asleep again. I tossed and turned, stared at the wall, and tried writing. Nothing helped. I finally crawled out of bed at 9 AM. I made tea to warm me up and here I am writing this post.
I have a vague idea of what's bothering me, but I will need to confirm it. I won't be able to figure it out until later tonight. In the mean time, I'm going to take a walk and relax my mind. Thinking too much about something you can't fix cannot be healthy.
When I'm feeling upset or emotionally off, I bake. Not necessarily for me to eat, but mostly to get my mind off of things. If my creation turns out well, it makes my problem that much smaller.
This is one of those "I am down so I'm experimenting" creation. It was only okay to me. The coffee flavor wasn't as strong as I had hoped. It's going to need some tweaking before I post up a recipe.
