Sweetly Fortunate

I feel sweet. That is my mood. Who knows how long it will stay. My hair is soft from the cold weather (thank GOD for less humidity, can I get a hot tub?!--you know the guy in the State Farm commercial, where they sing the jingle 'like a good neighbor', you know the rest), I went grocery shopping (always a blessed, good feeling filling your fridge), and Criminal Minds is on marathon. My day = satisfied. I'm happy to end a day feeling that way.

Today, I contemplated so much; writing-where do I want to take my work from here? What could I do to further the progression of the next chapter. (Is it appropriate to insert the ever fun to say 'no pun intended'...does that apply here? I'm a writer, talking about the next chapter, like I write my life story, okay I'm moving on). I'm more than content with my writing outlets. I'm fortunate that I belong to two publication families and I thrive more and more for a passion I've always had. That's truly fortunate. I'm looking to broaden my audience and step into my next phase of becoming an established, known (other than to my parents) writer. I can't wait.

I got to thinking about my new home to find. We're severely outgrowing our current humble abode, between us needing the room for all of our beloved belongings and Pepper needing her own bedroom to retreat to, we're anxiously awaiting our search that shall begin. We still have a handful of months before we look but I want it nowww!(In the voice of Veronica from Wilky Wonka in an English accent "But I want it nowwww Dad--dee! Lovesss it. 'These Snozberries'... Alright, I'm done.)

Needless to say, a lot of things are coming and a lot of hard work is to be had. If I can keep finding happiness in good hair on a cold day and working towards giving my girls their newer and better and bigger home to roam, I could only be so fortunate. And when I need some extra sweetness I can look to this little pumpkin snicker doodle to rub off on me:

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
