Ready For Fall

Yea, I said it.  I'm officially counting down for cooler days, scarves, my birthday, stews, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc, etc.

                                 I'll be thrilled to wear cardigans/scarves again soon

Ugh, just looking at that pic above is making my fingernails sweat.  It is bloody HOT in Florida in the summer, yes we know.  However, every year, I seem to believe more regularly "this is THE HOTTEST year, right???"  It's gross hot, instant headache inducing hot, I want to punch a penguin hot.  That last example is quite dramatic.  I have nothing against penguins other than during summer when they seem to always be in freezing climates.

So with fall on my mind and my mind on fall, let's make this year's first quintessential blogger "I can't wait for fall!!" post:

1. I love how in fall an evening walk can happen before 8pm.  The sun and sky are gorge, the air more crisp, and just the overall vibe is peaceful.

2. I make chili like twice a year and yes, fall kicks that off.  I make damn good turkey chili and am proud of it.

3. Harvest themes, festivals, and pumpkins!  A little trick I do to treat myself (see what I did there? Huh, Huh?) to less unpacking and repacking decor this time of year is decorate in high amounts of pumpkins that work for Halloween and then transition into a Thanksgiving harvest motif. #suchathinker

4. Halloween is my fave holiday ever.  Love the spookiness, the sweet treats, the dress up potential.  Oh and the movies!  My God man, the movies are the best part of Halloween!

5. I'm going to list football but let me be clear; I myself am not a big fan of the sport itself.  But my Hunter loves it so while he enjoys that I usually catch up on everything else on this list that I adore about fall.  And I do enjoy tailgate food/drinkies so there's that.

I'm going to go drink more water now because, yea extra extra extra hydration required in Florida middle of July.  Wake me when September comes.

Let's 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.
