Belated Weekend Recap: BBQ, pumpkins, & other adventures

My weekend was quite enjoyable. Hunter and I relaxed yet got things done. It was a fantastic balance. Let's get on with it, shall we?

Let's get the obligatory dog pic out of the way. This is merely one of the random that are snapped of these beasts, natch:



Winter Garden Farmer's Market y'all. This is a wonderful market with so many awesome vendors. We went for both biz and for pleaz. I was interviewing an artist so when I was done we wandered around for pics and scenery. Gorgeous area, btw. We had some down home deliciousness for lunch, aka Harry and Larry's BBQ. If you ever find your self in the area, don't think twice about this stop. If you don't find your self in the area, find a reason. Their brisket and cole slaw is no joke.



Now this next weekend recap is a special one indeed. Hunty and I purchased new pots and pans. We were gifted a wonderful set of pans when we first moved in together years ago and they have served us well, these cooking instruments. It was time though and we had time so we ventured out and sought out a fabulous set I have been eye balling. Not only were they an amazing sale price but we had an additional discount to apply. They are this fun ombre orange set and we have been cooking just to cook so I can test them out. Love, love, love them. Be still, my domesticated heart...



These are just some of my fave pieces lately:



The weekend winded down with some new publications:

A lovely weekend indeed. Of course to end it, during a late dinner Sunday night I bit down on something and managed to hurt a back moler. Um, owww. Es la vida, no?

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.
