“What is saving your life right now?”
Lake days, sunset rainbows on the back porch, laughing with our boys, reading summer fiction books, and Dr Pepper.
But on the surface, here are a few more things that have brought joy lately….
I wish everyone would read it. His audio version is a hilarious delight. I’ve listened and read it, due to being super offendable and needed to take it in twice. It’s refreshing to realize our righteous anger is complete baloney. I’m still re-reading the parts I underlined, hoping the lessons will soak through my skull and ego.
A friend came by last week and laughed that I was still using this healing lotion. It has been a summer staple for years, because I love the sun. A lot. It’s basically like putting conditioner on your skin. Maui After Sun Browning lotion is amazing and can be found on Amazon or Ulta!
Speaking of sun…here is my favorite sunblock. I shared this last summer, but love you enough to share again. Because it’s a perfect marriage of oil and sunblock for those of us who use to lay out with baby oil slathered all over our baby skin. Maybe even baby oil laced with tiny drops of iodine for the crazy people from the early 90’s. It’s great sun protection and nourishing to the skin.
This setting spray is perfect for spraying on protection on your face throughout the day. Especially when one is wearing makeup and can’t rub on lotion.
Yes, I like to cross-stitch and no, I am not a Senior Citizen yet. However, I will hopefully still be working away on a pattern even then. Stitching soothes me and helps me clear my mind. Also, Etsy has the most adorable and trendy patterns. Call me old fashion but I love receiving and giving homemade gifts.
A friend shared this eyelash curler with me years ago and I’ve never found one that works better. I’ve strayed a few times, but have always come back to my old faithful. It curls perfectly without just bending them straight up. You know what I’m talking about, no one wants their lashes to protrude straight up with a hard turn to heaven.
“Athleeeta or Athleta?” Who knows and I haven’t really cared, but if me not knowing how to pronounce the brand bothers you, and you know the answer…please call me and let me know. These white Athleta pants are some of my favorites, super soft yet have great support. You ladies know what I mean by support, a happy medium of Spanx and breathing. I have these in white, red and just ordered the teal (peacock) as well because they are on sale!
Summer is for making homemade ice-cream. Vanilla, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Covered Cherry, Butterfinger, Peach, Toffee Pecan…. they are all stocked in our freezer. We do this to attract all the teenagers to our house. Some might call it manipulation, we call it love. And brilliant.
These are the freezer cups we order off of Amazon. The half pint size works best for our gang. (The labels are made on www.avery.com and printed at home.)
Watching my boys and their friends fish. Time well spent.
“Life and fishing are very similar, you never know what’s at the end of the line.”
Until next time, I’ll leave you with another sunset photo of the lake last week.
