Ode to the dogs...again

One of the most fascinating things to me in all of life, is the impact animals can have on us. Specifically dogs. Now, if you have been to this little nestle in the virtual world before, you have been privy to the love and doting the Munterhegans do on their dogters.

These little fur babes really don't care if you have the best or worst day; all they do is care and love on you.

Take my Roni. She never lets you eat alone, particularly edamame or green apples. Or go to the restroom alone. Or go to bed without her. In fact, she's very much okay with putting herself in whatever situation that will have her fare best. I guess it's best to say she's always there for you. Literally.


Pepper now, she tends to do her own thing in a different kind of way. Clearly the oldest of two, she is a leader for herself and for her sister. She is fearless in most every situation and very protective. Yet, she's sweet and doesn't like when people cry. It's like in Steel Magnolias, Dolly Parton's character says she does not allow anyone to cry alone in her presence. Pepper doesn't necessarily cry but she does stop whatever she's doing to come put her 12.5 pound head right in your lap.


I've said it before, I'll say it again now, and probably again in 200 more posts, but my girls are everything. They are loyal, kind, loving, adoring, funny; they are the whole package.

Long live the dynamic duo, the PepperRoni:


Until we meet again,
M

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.
