Hiatus

I took a breaky for a bit from ohgabetta. I was getting a little over zealous for a minute and truth be told I burnt out. I admit, school, work and day to day events have me going at warp speed these days. I let this little space o' mine fall behind me. I know it's life and it happens and it's not the end of the world but to me it is. I really want to stick with blogging as a steady thing. I need this. I am doing what I want to do, which is living my life and being able to capture so many happy thoughts an ideas to place down on virtual paper. I like talking in this space and adding pictures the way I see them. Talk about serenity freaking now.

I needed to breathe and reboot (wise words from the fab CB from SATC, BTW) and honestly the few days I've had off from work extra were much needed. Yes. They. Ar--I mean Were. As in, time to go back to reality and alarm clocks. Es la vida, no?


It helps that I got my paws on some new (on sale-yesss) stationary. Lots of happy desk spaces for me! I think this cures this bout of writer's curse(block). Having trouble virtually? Kick it old school with some dainty little sheets, some new mechanical glitter pencils(um, duh), and bam! You get it together and address your blog abandonment issue. Done.

Evidencione:




School ideas, errands, house projects, random thoughts of inspiration, grocery items---literally my brain in a five minute window. That reminds me; poor Hunter.


Okay, so I see in the bloggy world alot of awesome recaps from the weekend and a lot of reflection on the first day back after everyone's awesome holiday. Honestly, the world is wonderful right now. It was a beautiful few days to spend celebrating those who have fought, are fighting, and to those who aim join the Armed Forces. Thank you to anyone who come across this article for your courage and sacrifice in so many ways.

It sure is nice to have time to do what ya wanna do, take in some natural vitamin D, and quite honestly do whatever else blows your dress up. Travel, be lackadaisical, party, don't party, clean your house, trash someone else's pool, whatever the kids are doing these days. Hunty and I chose a little bit of homebody-ism with a side of visits to the pool multiple days:




Le view from under my floppy hat


Good healthy brain food and some lounging with red box in between pool vizzies:





(notsomuchpuppies)puppybabies time, talk about lounging this weekend...





These two? Ugh, of course they did.


I'm very rejuvenated for the short work week to commence and I'm especially thankful I had one extra day. I spent the entire day focusing on my final publication that ends my first semester of grad school. That doesn't mean much of anything actually. I start a new class Monday. That's the joy and the pain of a 1-year program indeed. It is 20% of my grade and I am earning every bit of that 20, let me just say. Excited, nervous, eager, antsy-you name it and I am feeling it on this one. Ready to bring to life my planning and create this story.


EEK,

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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
