It’s time for the little things I love about our week and this week seems to be slow and fast at the same time. Is that possible? I feel like for once I am caught up on everything and been taking a lot more time with the kids and myself and yet I feel it’s still flown by too.
It’s been a week with no colds of flus, no sniffles or coughs in this house. Can you believe it? Nor, can I! I have kicked started a new little routine for myself to being healthy and keep those germs at bay. Yes, I admit it I have jumped on the juicing band wagon but only because I am hearing so many amazing stories from everyone and I was lucky enough for a friend to give me her amazing juicing machine as she is moving to Spain. Bonus. So I will be sharing my progress as I start a three day detox, if I come out alive on the other side to tell you about it. Stay tuned.
I have read this book cover to cover and a few tips, a few extra times but I am still not complete friends with my camera. I have been off AUTO for about six months and I am learning more and more each time I practice with it. I say roll on Spring so I can get outdoors and not have to worry so much about the gloomy light indoors. It’s a great book for beginners but it’s very basic so if you know about iso, shutter speed, and aperture then I wouldn’t recommend it.
I have been hearing one too many bloggers and friends in general saying they just can’t do it all, they can’t keep up or they feel so overwhelmed and like they are failing at everything. I have been guilty of this myself too. This week I wrote a post about how “she doesn’t exist” that perfect mythical super woman we all strive to be, I also did a video of my own reality to show those that say they think my life is perfectly glossy and glamorous, I am sorry to disappoint you, it is SO normal. Yes, my children cry and argue, yes, my laundry is spread out everywhere all the time, yes, my house gets messy and yes, I hardly get to shower let alone get dressed with makeup on each day. I wanted my reality to help others not be so hard on themselves and reminder to myself that I can’t do it all either! So even though it’s embarrassing to show my non makeup just woken up face and dirty house in this situation it’s a must!
I have been hooked back to the tv recorder with Scandal, Revenge, and even still watching that Broadchurch I ranted about last week. It’s picking up so I won’t let go just yet. As the new year gets going all my favorite shows are back in order. I love it.
I have broken out of my comfort zone and finally bought a hat! I love it but Mr P says I look like a weirdo in it. I have always loved hats but never thought I could pull it off. I am ignoring the man-pion, and trying it out for a wintery look. Honest thoughts? Would you think it was weird to have a black floppy hat on in January?
This week I made the most scrumptious comforting homemade Butternut Squash Soup ever! Recipe will be on my blog tomorrow I haven’t had time while stuffing my face endlessly with it to write it up yet. So here a sneak peak for you to drool on it until then. 🙂
It’s now becoming a little tradition to share my Pinterest journey. I have been creating new pinterest boards this week, here is my latest board of ‘Floral Home Decor’. I love fresh flowers as much as I love fake flowers in the home. Ones that only need dusting and not watering tend to last the longest in our house as I usually have a black thumb. I have been pouring over some for new additions to our house and finding inspiration for upcoming Spring.
