#Loyalty

Give a dog your heart and he'll give you his-John Grogan




Two of the most loyal, loving creatures right here.  I've said it many times at this very blog space how much we adore our pups, the PepperRoni sisters, but it never gets old to keep expressing it.  What?  You human children lovers can go shave your back now back to idolizing your non-tailed kids now.

I got to thinking during a nap recently how dogs know love.  Do they understand words and just not speak them?  Is it simply through tone?  I mean, those that think a dog isn't smart and just knows what you want by tone obviously never heard Cruella De Ville in the evenings when using her normal tone.  Even she sounded sweeter when she took her coat off for the night.

These dogs wait for us to get home and are always thrilled upon our return.  Doesn't matter if we're gone 10 minutes or hours.  Hence the picture above.  That's my girls staring down at the front door waiting for me after being gone for the day.  Hunter texted saying he told them it would be just a little bit longer for mommy to get home.  I used to fall asleep waiting up for my parents and Santa pretty much the same exact way.  Why?  Love and loyalty people.

When Hunter used to travel for work, he would drag out his big green box (suitcase) and Pepper would immediately get mopey.  She would sit and stare as he packed up the box and she knew.  When he would be gone for weeks and headed back home, I would tell our girls when he was about an hour out as they would be in a dead sleep, "the boy is coming home" and bam!  They were up staring and pacing at the door.

Dogs know love because they feel it.  They sense it.  And yea, seeing as my girls are smarter than most honor students, they do know when I say I love them what I'm actually saying.  And yep, they sure do say it back.

Like Usher these are my confessions.  This is what nap time Megan thinks about.  Yes this is without the help of any sleep aides.  Just how I woof.

How do you know your pets senses?

Until we meet again,

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…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
