Blogtober Recap and Takeaways

The challenge of Blogtober has come and gone. I am pleased to acknowledge my full 31 day participation. This was my main reason to join in on this fabulous Helene and Taylor Link Up, so I feel all elated, like after any good marathon.

This provided me something to look forward to and every night I would try to get my post ready for publishing in the AM. Some nights, well, my bed won the debate, thus causing me to get up and be sure to write a good post at the start of my day. Let me just say, this required a 30 minute earlier than normal wake up time.

There were about 3 topics I didn't know what to say. I remember I went to bed so disappointed when the first prompt that I was like uh-oh, this 31 days straight may not happen because I have nothing to say, occurred. But as any good writer's block happens, it cleared. An "I'll face it in the morning" approach worked in my favor. The post in question, about my funniest memory from childhood, ended up being one of my very favorites. Funny how that works.

I told my self to take the weekend and not write. I needed a rejuvenation. I slept in, worked out, baked, did laundry. I was very lackadaisical and content with enjoying the day as it came, both Saturday and Sunday. We have been extra busy lately with various events between both Hunter and I, so it was needed to soak up some R&R. I even napped on Saturday. Get! Out!

And because it's a Monday, for your entertainment:

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.
