Five simple things


Hope you and yours had a wonderful eclipse Monday and enjoyed either totality or partial. We here in Oregon got one heck of a show! Honestly, I've told many people already, it doesn't matter what words I use to describe it, it will never be enough. Seeing total eclipse in person was amazing! I am so glad The Bean, The Mr., and I got to experience something so great and for some people, a once in a lifetime experience. We have always been stargazers and this just adds to our bucket list of things we want to experience. For the rest of the week we were all on eclipse high and had a great week. Although, nothing else seemed to compare to the eclipse, we did have a pretty groovy week. So here are the things that made it great!

1. Prayer flags

With so much hate and hurt happening all over the world lately, we hung our prayer flags outside again. I had taken them down and this time decided to put them out and leave them out. These flags wave in the wind and send prayers where needed from the script written on the flags. Hopefully, if only one prayer, it will help, or heal someone out there that needs it.

2. Golf practice

The Mr. invited The Bean and I to go play golf with him and a coworker. The Bean has been working on his swing and lineup coordination lately and I needed to work on my driving. We had a great time and The Mr. was able to get some practice in before his annual company golf tournament.

3. Solar eclipse

We enjoyed the solar eclipse here in the Willamette Valley, along with many others that were along the path of Totality. We couldn't have asked for a better show and the fun we had in our own backyard will go down in the books! Check out our experience here.

4. Mightnest's Mightyfix

Mightnest this month was a bit on the "need" side instead of the "want." We actually did need new cloth dinner napkins and some probiotics to flush out some of bad bacteria in our guts lately. Of course, those two things were an addon, but the actually item for this month's shipment was the Full Circle dish brush. Definitely can always use a dish brush, so this was a nice addition. As for the dinner napkins, when I ordered them I didn't realize they were from a company based in Albany, Oregon. Oh, Little Rabbit is a husband and wife team that make home goods and apparel in small batches. The dinner napkins are handmade, and eco-friendly-with 100% cotton, so that is a plus. We love them already and used them with dinner last night. The print on them fits in nicely with our dinning table too.

5. New carpet

We got new voc-free carpet for our area in the back of the house we like to refer to as, "the tv room," "den," etc. This new carpet has low vocs and feels great under bare feet. It's just what this space needed and The Mr. has already taken a nap on it and can vouch it's a win!

Have a great weekend!
