Mean What I Say

So, um. Wow. I wasn't kidding with my last post title, huh? Well, it's true. August is a cruel month. Slowly, surely you say good bye to summer's lackadaisical appeal all while Satan himself breathes right over top of the world. It is so blasted hot it's almost like your skin melts and you need sunscreen just going to the mailbox. Ugh. Labor day could not come as quick as it ultimately did. We celebrated my sister's birthday (She turned 15, I threw up a little bit saying that) we raced go-karts and called it a day. She's a really cool kid. She marches to the beat of her own drum and has a strong sense of her self and it's beautiful. I am beyond excited she is the age she is and I think this is going to be fun the next few years.

School, school, school. Woof. I am so ready to finish yet I'm terrified when it will. It is going to feel so good when this is done yes, but I love school. I love to learn all that I am. I love to bitch about being tired from learning so much. Say what? Yes. it's true. I'm convinced you become slightly delirious around month 6 to 8. Delirious with passion, fire, the want for the end. It's absolutely exhilarating. If you ain't never felt this way about something, then I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but education ain't one. Sorry, I've been on vacation a few days. Anywhoodles...

It is crazy talk I tell you that we are in fact onward to autumn. When I was filling out my new planner, which is teal and peach paisley printed (eek!), I saw the first official day of Autumn is proudly stamped as September 22nd. Wow! It's here, it's here!! I love love love the fall the best and it's so close I can smell the white hot chocolate brewing. Seriously, Starbucks White Hot Chocolate Forget the pumpkin coffee. White hot chocolate with pumpkin bread? Fagettuhboutit.

Ok, so. Back to some work. On top of school I am very fortunate to be working with a wonderful fashion site and I have an article due Thursday night. I'm covering an event tomorrow night right after work so I'm down to the this evening to get it done so I can proof it with fresh eyes Thursday morning. Wheeee for busy bees!

What I've been up to:

Vacation I said.

Ready for it? Huh, huh? Vacation. Organization.

Homemade brunch.

Baby cousin throwback pic. For cereal, where does the time go?

Five Guys, yes please. Always, just always.

Snuggle britches here likes to slither past me and get into bed again. I thought the 3 couches and spare bed were yours and this one is ours, Pep?

Wowzie. The big 1-7 in this pic I believe. My boo Ajean.

Fat, fat water rat. Golden Girls ref anyone?

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.
