Five Simple Things (August 5)


Here are five things this week.

1. This Seed.

Sometimes when plants come to the end of their life, they are still so fascinating to me. The skeleton of a leaf, or this skeleton of a spent dandelion.

2. These Items.

This month's Mighty Fix from Mighty Nest was something we definitely have been putting to use this month. Stainless steal lunch containers are kind of our thing lately. We have been using them pretty much every day for snacks, lunch items, and I recently started using one for a first aid kit for when we go surfing. You can get Might Fix here.
Also, in my recent Might Nest order I added on these compostable sandwich bags and these D3 vitamins. With Might Nest you can add on as many items as you want in your shipment each month. We love how convenient it is and how great the selection of organic, earth-friendly, and natural products are. Check out Might Nest here.

3. These Glasses.

Had an eye doctor's appointment this week and found out my near sightedness is getting worse. My eye doctor said eventually they will level out and stay that way, but it's still upsetting to hear age taking its toll. The glasses on the left are my old ones and the ones on the right are the new. I clearly have a style I stick with.

4. This Cat.

Eleven is the silliest cat I have ever had. She has such a great personality and she's very curious of everything. I picked her up some cat grass this week, too and she loves it. 

5. These Ducks.

Quappy is growing up so big, so fast, and this week I picked her up a little friend at our local Wilco. I made sure to get one with natural ingredients for when she nibbles on it. She took a liking to it right away. It's completely made of eco-friendly materials. You can get the exact same little friend here.

Positive affirmations this week:
Anything you're striving for always do it for you and not other people. Living as a people please always stills your joy. I was a people pleaser for so long and not anymore. I still catch myself going back on comfortable old habits, and remember that's not who I am. It takes practice, but setting those boundaries on what you allow and what you don't helps a great deal. You can start by writing things down that have crossed your boundaries in the past and right a solution to why you won't allow that anymore. And, stick to it. You can do this!

Have a nice weekend.
