Five simple things

September 28, 2018

Hello.

The cold has come and now it's gone. We took advantage of the chill in the air for a few days and painted our deck (a post is in the works). We went with a textured surface with color and it really turned out well. We also decided to grab up some textured paint for the front step area, too. We are hoping to get a coat on that soon before the winter season comes. On a different note, today marks one year since we lost our sweet, loving dog Baz. It still hard for us to think about and my favorite and hardest times this past year have been when all three of us gather in the front room with no distractions and just talk about him, or other topics. I really enjoy that time we spend together because it seems to allow us to be more connected. I have Baz to thank for those moments because it really started after he passed away. God we miss him. With Meia and him being gone, and with having them for almost 20 years, our lives have definitely taken a different path now. It's been a hard year, but the healing is happening. And although we are healing from their loss, we will never get over how much they affected our lives and left a permanent mark on our lives. We will live life at a Swell's pace and also never forget how the little things matter so much. Here are five simple things that made this week good.

1. This harvest...


With the Harvest Moon we went ahead of picked and dug all of the vegetables we could gather. We were extremely pleased with the potato harvest and the last of the tomatoes are slowly ripening up. 

2. These crab pots...

Always ready to go and always makes me long for ocean waves.

3. These tablets...

Trying a new way to clean the hard to reach stainless steel water bottles.

4. These organic deodorant...

Giving it a go. We'll see...

5. This Mightnest fix for September...

Still wondering if we like silicone, but we're willing to give it at least give it a chance.
