on the cutting room floor - pt. 2

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Things these last few weeks have been hectic. I've been helping out at the flower shop a lot lately. I LOVE it. It's challenging me in a bunch of different ways that I really enjoy...and will probably talk about later. It pushes me out of my comfort zone, and who is going to argue with making extra money that can go straight into savings? But I feel so very burnt out. Finding balance between blogging full time and then doing something extra on the side is more difficult than I imagined. I'm, of course, not fishing for sympathy, or casually tossing hints to Anji who reads my blog - just sharing a little about what's going on around here behind the scenes. Plus I know that sometimes it's helpful to just admit something is stressing you out and somehow after that things magically fall into place.

There are an infinite number of things to blog about, especially considering I have such a wide variety of interests, and right now I literally cannot think of a single thing I want to write about. People always complain bloggers only share the sunny side so consider this my contribution to the other side. I guess to be fair, it's not even that this is something not "sunny", it's just a little extra sunny here? Like I need a bit of sunscreen or some time in the shade. Does that make sense? I know I'm totally going to read this later and be like "what the heck was I even trying to say?!" But if you knew how long it took me to even get this far into the post you'd understand. It took me so long before I thought of the perfect thing to share today - a new on the cutting room floor post! Lots of plants, and pets, the two things that help keep me grounded.

Here's to hoping the holidays aren't as crazy for you and that a day of over indulging myself on mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie at the end of the week is just what I need.


project 365 // days 319 - 325

Monday, November 23, 2015

319 : 365  Warm fall days are the best. While at my parents house I found lots of mushrooms and Klaus enjoyed playing in the pond for what will probably be the last time for the year. His face buried in the water in that first photo kills me. Such a sweet pup.

  320 : 365 Christmas cactus in full bloom. I know I shared a photo of this last week as well but it's just so beautiful and so satisfying to know what I grew that!

 321 : 365 Bulletin board things.

 322 : 365 Freshly colored orange hair. It was kind of one of those things where I was like "Oh man, why I did I just do that?" I'm itching for a change but I'll have to let this fade out a bit first.

 323 : 365 Spiced pumpkin candle? A new favorite, obviously.

324 : 365 Anji's booth at the Cleveland Flea. How awesome are those poinsettias? We've been working hard to get them made in time for the holidays! They're pet friendly and oh so awesome.

325 : 365  My pups are missing that sunlight! I wish I lived somewhere they could stay outside all year long.

Hope you're having an awesome start to your week!
