Five Simple Things (August 12)


Here are five things this week.

1. These Views.

We took a quick trip to Bend this past week to check out some land offers. Still looking for that just perfect piece for us. Bend has a lot of great areas and we just can't decide which area we love best. We are in no hurry, though, because our current focus is coastal land for permanent roots. But, fingers are crossed that a good piece finds us at the same time we find it. 

2. These Sunflowers.

Jeff brought them to me to brighten up an otherwise hard week for me. I really appreciate his kindness to me still after all these years. I am definitely blessed with more than I deserve.

3. This Box.

Misfits Market this week was definitely a huge haul. We get most of our organic groceries from them and we couldn't be more pleased with finding a great grocery delivery that aligns with our diet and eating habits. You can sign up for this grocery box here and get $10 off your first order.

4. This Items.

It's been hot as blazes here lately, so we are doing everything we can to keep it cool. We found the cutest water sprinkler that is tall enough for all of us to fit under and it's been a blast. And, we're quite partial to rainbows in this house. We also picked up these blackout curtains to help contain some cool air inside our house, and these curtains work. They also come in a wide variety of colors, but the one pictures is a slate gray. Lastly, this gallon-sized water cooler. I've been already drinking about a gallon of water a day, so these will be helpful in keeping up with it all better.

5. This Run.

Getting better at running without stopping. Looking for progress not perfection, so I am pleased.

Positive affirmations this week:

Definitely a great mix of three important factors to consider at any age: Eating clean and healthy, cardio for all over body fat burn, and targeted moves to keep strength. Core workouts are key right now, especially at my age, which is 40+. Would also add in self-care for your face, body, and hair, as well. And, your routine may change as you age, but this regimen has been working for me. Hopefully, it can work for you, too. You can do this!

"Austin" is referring to Denise Austin and you can read the full article here.

Have a nice weekend.
