Chaos in Crowds

It's crazy how much I don't like going into stores during certain times anymore.  And by certain times I mean mostly anytime between open and close.  I kid mildly, but really I've come to have a real distaste for running into a Target on a Saturday.  We have a good sized town center 4 miles from my house with most every basic need and then some for retail options.  I've always loved this lovely outdoor mall but in recent years, it takes a lot for me to go to it any ol'time of day.

My ideal time to frequent it is during the week on maybe a Monday, Tuesday, or a Wednesday between the hours of 8am and about 1pm.  Crowds are minimal, those that are there also seem to be on the same wavelength of appreciating less chaos, and inventory is at peak.  This.  This is when it exudes its holy land esque style for me.

Hunter has never been one much for store hopping, here and there of course, but he's quite content setting me loose to handle anything we want or need.  Silly or super awesome of the dear lad, you may be the judge.  We popped into our Target over the weekend, during one of their busiest hours, at the end of a hurricane week where people are still recovering in a variety of ways.  Dumb dumb dumb dumbbbbb.  

A merry and happy Monday to you, darling.

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.
