Well Read



Oh, Sunday night. Ugh. This is my 175th post for this blog though. At least that makes the sting of a new work week looming a little less sharp.

I've been laughing non-stop at the above listed Chelsea book. Man, her stuff is seriously as funny to me, as it was when I first ever read her work. Like, I'm talking spit up a little on yourself laughing. I snort approximately 6 times a chapter.

I also snagged Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, which I read when I was in high school. I figure it's always a good reminder to not sweat, and it couldn't hurt to apply some of the lessons all over again to life. I wish I remembered which tips I highlighted 10 years ago so I could see how it would fare to what I deem important now. Coulda, woulda, shoulda got myself a crystal ball back then, to know I'd be a blogger looking to have a post idea.

And of course I found a book of Mister Rogers' life quotes and lessons. Naturally, because Mister Rogers was a proponent of different outfit changes in one sitting, I was a fan early on. I was hooked the first time I saw him throw on a light sweater after wearing a tailored jacket just cause. Mister Rogers' wife states in the book that he used to have quotes written on paper stored in his wallet, in his car, his dresser. Ones that made him think, reflect, care a little more about things. Sold! I am all in on this little bitty, darling book that fits so snug in my purse.

This is my reading list currently. What are you reading up on?

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.
