Have you missed me? I’ve missed you. Life has been throwing some hard stuff at us this Fall. Some have made my heart hurt, some have been struggles to see the end of the pain. I’m hoping we have made it through for now.
I just keep reminding myself:
When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Ps 142:3a
I’m now finishing up one of the worse colds I’ve had in a very long time. I almost canceled going to Thanksgiving Dinner. Stayed in bed most of the rest of the weekend and still cannot hear and my ears hurt. I’m onto week two of this cold.
What I have been Doing
I’ve been super busy working at home with my graphic design. But also have been very involved with the boys school. I volunteered to do the Gratitude Party for Zarek’s party and had tons of fun organizing it. You can see all the fun things we did for the party on my Fall Party Board:
We also had a Friends and Family night filling our house with friends. I was planning to share about the party here on Pepper Scraps but then the cold hit. But we are hoping to host more at our home, so I’m sure I will share.
What I have been Eating
The week before Thanksgiving I made myself bentos for lunch again and I really enjoyed them. I need to get in the habit of doing this again. It was a great way to have a meal that was easy to grab and all measured out. I think I have a video on my sd card so I may even share about making them on YouTube.
What I have been Watching
So while I have been sick I’ve been doing a lot of watching Netflix. Enough I had to start polling people on what to watch next. We cut the cable about 6 years ago and I have to say we love Netflix and we do a little bit of Amazon Prime too. While I’ve been in bed I’ve been watching Criminal Mind, CSI: NY, Love it or Leave it, and am currently enjoying Switched at Birth. I would never have picked Switched at Birth but someone suggested it and I like to watch clean shows when I’m in the same room with the boys. Even though I’m just watching it on my tablet.
What I have been Reading
While I’m trying to rest I have also been reading. Reading a lot. I have been rereading the Wheel Of Time Series (aff link) this year. In the last week I have finished Book Seven: The Crown of Swords (aff link) and Book Eight: Path of Daggers (aff link). I may actually get through the whole series in a year.
What I have been Using
I have been curious about Jamberry Nails the last couple months and I got a couple sheets with a friend. I was having some troubles with them, but have figured it out and am now loving them. So I put in a big order at my friends party. I can’t wait to get them and share them when I get them on YouTube.
I did share my unboxing of my Influenster Box on Youtube.
Of course the Puffs Softpacks have been awesome! Been loving caring them around and not worry about smashing a cardboard box.
I’ve also really liked Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion. I’m not a big lotion fan but I really like this one. It’s not greasy, smooth and no strong scent.
I want to try out the Hair Food for a little of pampering today.
