Get out of the rut!!  Do something spontaneous; do one different thing today.  I grabbed my cordless broom and flew to work with my new auburn hair and my big cheesy grin.  Don’t wait…it is never too late to go for it!  

The witching hour is only days away.  Show your new fall attitude and be a new you.  Notice I’m not saying an improved you…lets face it all my Divas rock already.  Just have fun being a sassier, saucier version of Diva perfection.  You never know what wonderful things can happen with the change.  Loveyoumeanit!

Namaste,

Diva Rambling- Truth

Have you ever had a situation where someone you work with is claiming to be working hard to get things done, but have you haven’t seen any real progress from them? If so, then your patience is probably running low — and you need to let them know that you’re not very happy.

It’s not wise to get threatening about it, but you should feel free to be more blunt than diplomatic when you talk to them about what they need to get done. Clear communication sometimes requires that you leave the charm behind….

It doesn’t always work but you will have been the one wearing the big girl panties and the truth is the truth…but as they say…sometimes truth hurts (especially a guilty conscience).

Diva Rambling-Haste!

Doing things hastily leads to mistakes and produces stress. We’ve all heard …”Haste Makes Waste.”… Work Effectively & efficiently, but do not move at such a lightening speed so that you lose sight of what is truly important.

Our Worlds obsession with speed and Greed multitasking leads to poorly done results and many errors, which have to be corrected later. This costs money, time and loss of energy and resources all around.

Do only one thing at a time. Try to touch a thin only once and be done with it. It will be a blessing for your work life and peace of mind….

Diva Tasting-Poached Eggs Caprese

Brunch Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Distilled White Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Himalayan Pink Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 4 Lg Eggs
  • 2 Whole Wheat English Muffin, Split
  • 4 (1 Oz) Slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Lg Tomato, Thickly Sliced
  • 2 Teaspoons Sriracha

Directions

Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, pour in the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of salt, and keep the water at a gentle simmer.

While waiting for the water to simmer, place a slice of mozzarella cheese and a thick slice of tomato onto each English muffin half, and toast in a toaster oven until the cheese softens and the English muffin has toasted, about 5 minutes.

Crack an egg into a small bowl. Holding the bowl just above the surface of the water, gently slip the egg into the simmering water. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Poach the eggs until the whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon, and dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water.

To assemble, place a poached egg on top of each English muffin. Spoon a 1/2 teaspoon of siracha sauce onto each egg and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
