I'm not even going to apologize for being so absent here lately. It is what it is. And here's the thing… I'm thinking about decommissioning this space. At the very least I'm going to make it private because when I googled my name it was one of the first things to pop up. I am a little leery keeping my life quite so public for clients to find at a whim. So, I'll keep you posted. For now I'm going to share some of my favorite things I'm enjoying these days.
First up: My homemade flax seed pillow. If you don't have one of these, you're missing out. Last year for Christmas I made one for each of the kids. We called them bed buddies and they help keep them warm as they're falling asleep. I had some leftover flax seeds and I always have fabric. One night I had some ache or I was cold so I made this beaut. It doesn't look like much but you pop it in the microwave for a minute or two and it feels miraculous. Some specs: it's probably about two pounds of seeds in a double thick pillow that measures 10ish" x 10ish". I made the ones for the kids much smaller.
Next: I found this gem in the country of Mexico in the Epcot world showcase. It is my favorite and most used souvenir from the trip. Day of the dead water cup makes me happy. Also, it's a tervis cup which means it doesn't spill easily, it can hold hot or cold drinks, and it has a lifetime guarantee.
Next: For several years I've been battling some significant fatigue. Coupled with depression, weight gain, and a few other symptoms I was finally at my wits end. I went to the doctor and she put me through a battery of blood tests. It turns out my B12 levels were significantly depleted. So I'm now on a high dose B12 vitamin to see if it helps restore my levels or if I'm having trouble absorbing it. To be honest, I think it's helping but we'll see in a month.
Next: I'm geeking out over this book for my current class. Good stuff. I mean terrible stuff but good things to know.
Next: I found this stuff, on sale, at Target and thought I would try it. It's my absolute favorite. I shower like normal but then turn off the water to use this stuff every time I shower. I rinse, then I let my skin air dry. I have the worst dry skin and wintertime is normally awful but not this year. If I could buy a case of it, I would.
Next: I decided to make baking something new every week a goal of mine as some soul care. I love baking and I miss just doing it because I love it. Here's my latest Saturday baking item: Kugelhopf.
There you go. What are some of your favorite things right now?
