My Journey to Quit Smoking: Week 9, Day 59
November 16th, 2018
Today was a busy day, but a good day.
I woke up around noon. I’m still having trouble falling asleep at night, but I’m sure I’ll get that figured out soon. I didn’t dream though, so that’s good!
I checked the mail today and my new pipe arrived, along with another smoking blend! 😍
Meet my new pipe, his name is King Arthur. I named him King Arthur because he is the king of all pipes. My herbal smoking blends taste so smooth and I get a perfect puff every time.
It was a pretty non-busy day until 3:30 p.m. rolled around.
At 3:30 p.m. I drove my son over to Madill to hang out with some friends, I also renewed my license at the tag agency and stopped by the store to grab a few things to decorate my niece’s birthday cake.
Not long after we arrived at home my sister, brother-in-law, and niece arrived bearing foods for supper, so my older daughter and I began cooking while my younger daughter kept my niece entertained. My sister and brother-in-law kept us company in the kitchen. It’s so nice to have family over for supper.
After we finished eating supper, we cleaned up the kitchen and started decorating the beautiful cakes my sister baked. She baked a chocolate quarter sheet cake and a vanilla quarter sheet cake. My little niece wanted a mermaid cake, like the picture below, so I tried my best to recreate it (the second picture).
My little 5 year old niece helped me make seashells for the corners. I made the large one and she made the three small ones. She even painted them with purple (her favorite color) food coloring! 💜
Somewhere in the middle of decorating the cake, I had to take a tea break and do a live video on my Facebook page, so I ended up finishing the cake decorating around midnight.
Since it was so late, I decided to finish up my video and this blog today (Saturday), but that didn’t help me fall asleep any faster. The Walking Dead kept me awake last night, lol, I’ve been catching up. Man, it’s getting good! Anyway, so all in all I would say that yesterday was a good day!
P.S. I smoked my pipe 11 times. I smoked mostly my herb blend with a pinch of tobacco, but there were a couple of times I just smoked my herb blend and once I smoked just tobacco (after supper).
