Relaxing on a Cozy, Rainy Spring Day

It has been pretty hot this past week, but today it decided to be much cloudier, cooler, and rainier. I am perfectly happy with this as I grew up in Oregon, so the smell and sound of rain are all comforting to me as is the look of the outside world being wet.

I had planned on having a major cleaning day, but when I woke up and saw the weather I just felt like I wanted to relax and lounge around instead. My dog isn’t thrilled with the rain cause she hates getting wet, but she’ll survive.

Today has pretty much consisted of me watching YouTube and Netflix. I watched one movie that I thought was pretty good and it’s called Slam. The ending wasn’t quite as happy as normal movies are, but I’m okay with that as nothing everything has to work out perfectly happy in the end and it’s okay to show more of real life like that by not having everything end with ‘and they lived happily ever after’.

I also have one of those wax warmer things and I originally bought two scents for it, one of them being a lemon one which I LOVED. The other scent I bought I’m really not liking much at all like I thought I would and it’s called ‘Warm Up Winter’. It just has a weird undertone that I don’t really care for.

That’s pretty much been my day and even though I haven’t done much productively I’m okay with that. It’s important to remember that there is nothing wrong with having a day where you really just get nothing done as it’s always good to relax and recharge yourself.

The Warmest Days so Far

Today I decided I would just write a little post about some of what I did today and what’s been going on. Firstly, it’s gotten nice and warm during the day so I have had all the windows in the house open for the past week and I have been loving it.

As you can see the animals have been enjoying it as well. It seems like they’ve gotten a little lazier seeing as it is warmer so they do tend to nap more, but they are still happy and loving life.

Ignoring my gross bathroom mirror, I have been feeling better about myself as well. I have gotten back full swing into exercising seeing as my foot is fully healed and slowly, but surely I am starting to see results and getting more toned. My goal isn’t to lose a bunch of weight cause I’m not anywhere near overweight, but I do look rather chubby and out of shape simply because I wasn’t doing anything to keep my body toned. That is changing for the better now and has left me feeling great.

I don’t really like flowers much, but I do love the look of the trees in summer and spring when they are full of color and life, so it is pretty awesome to see that coming back after the dead, lifeless look of winter.

With the warm weather, sunny days, and longer days coming back I am starting to feel much more motivated to do things rather than just sit on my lazy butt and watch netflix all day (though of course that does still happen). Hopefully everyone else out there is starting to feel the same cheerfulness that I am!!

My Blog is 1 year old!!

To be honest I knew I started this blog in April of 2016, but I had no idea what actual day I started. Turns out that blogpost will tell you as I just got a reminder for a congrats on one year of my blog!!

Seeing as it has been a full year, I decided I would look at everything that has changed in the year since I started the blog.

The first major thing is that we are no longer living in Germany and are finally back in America!! The only reason we even lived in Germany for a year and a half was because Aaron was in the military and that’s where he was stationed. He is no longer in the military and for the the first few months we lived in Oregon since that is where we both are from so we stayed with our parents for a while until Aaron got a new job, which landed us in Colorado.

Next, is an interesting array of pets. We brought our dog Umbreon with us from Germany which was fine for moving countries cause it was already enough of a hassle to move just her. In Oregon, we picked up a sweet little kitten that we named Spooky and he will actually be turning a year old in a few days. Then we got a hedgie, that sadly we had to rehome, but we did end up the 3 rats Tatl, Tael, and Peter. Peter sadly passed away very suddenly, so we are now down to the two rats. And lastly, we have our 2 year old ferrets Zelda and Link as pictured above. I love all of my fur babies and am so glad that we picked them up during this past year.

And I’m not actually announcing anything, but Aaron and I have also started trying to have our first baby. Again, NOT announcing anything because there is nothing to say on that front, but we know our time will come.

Those are all the major changes I can think of and I want to keep it to major things, cause I don’t want this post to drag on too long. Thank you to everybody who has read a post of mine, started following me, or just even glanced at my blog. It’s good to know that something I love doing can give some kind of entertainment to other people and makes me want to keep this blog up for as long as I can!
