First let me give a little info about a few things I’ve added around here.
- Fur Babies – I added fur baby pages! Really I’ve only added Ash’s page right now with a ton of pictures of him. I’ll add one for the dog sometime soon.
- Gallery – I’ve been wanting to add this for a while and since we’ve been stuck at home I finally just sat down and added it. Yes, I’ve added a small gallery. The gallery is split up into the following: Animals, Little Friends, and Nature. I’m not sure how often I’ll update it, I’d like to update it at least once a month. I’m sure I’ll end up adding more sections too.
- Recipes – I’ve added back the recipes section. Right now there’s only one recipe, but I’m hoping to add more soon. I kind of want to focus more on dinner recipes, but we’ll see what happens.
- About Me – I’ve updated the about me page. I’ve actually completely changed it, which I think is something we all do after a while. Life changes, you change.
I am officially a female business owner. I filed the LLC for The Purple Dahlia Bakery ltd last week, it was approved! I’m currently waiting to receive first drafts of possible logos – which I can’t wait for! Once I have a logo I’m going to get a few business cards printed.
These past weeks have been hard for everyone. I realized yesterday I’ve been out of work since the 23rd of March. It honestly didn’t seem that long. Yes, as many people I am one who has been part of a mass layoff. I’m also in Ohio, we’ve been on a stay at home order since around the same time. It was suppose to end Monday, but was extended to the end of April. I honestly see it going past that even. Kids have been out of school, everything is closed and stores are limiting the number of people allowed in at a time. I have been able to keep myself busy at home though! My boyfriend has still been working, but working from home. For the most part during the day I hang out with the cat and deal with a hobby or two of mine. We still have dinner the same time and find something to do together at night.
I’ve slowly been working on getting through all the watch lists I have across three different accounts. Amazon prime, Hulu & Netflix. It has not been going very well. What can I say, I find a random thing that’s made up of episodes and I become hooked and I have to finish that before I watch anything else. Ugh. I can’t help it.
Also, Amazon prime has been the main place I’ve watched movies from lately. They had a pretty good sale during the holiday season and I ended up buying a bunch of movies…which I’ve only watched one of those. My bad.
I do plan on doing a major movie post(s) at some point. I’m going to go decade by decade, highlighting some of my favorites. I’ve been wanting to do something like that for so long, and well movies are my happy place – especially those lovely horror movies.
The weather has been…wild…so we haven’t really been going out to movies as often as we did during the summer/fall. In our area a “new” theater did open at the end of the year. I say “new” because they just remolded it and added a kitchen so it’s one of the Cinemark Bistro theaters. We’ve been there since they reopened, but the kitchen wasn’t open yet. The new seats are great though, compared to what they had before.
Even though I haven’t really watched a lot of movies lately, I do want to talk about the ones I have watched. I figure, as usual, most of them are ones people haven’t seen (or even heard of). So here we go…
I love baking. I’m pretty sure it’s no secret. The fact that I have a pan of brownies cooling right now kind of proves that.
Baking helps you release all the stress that builds up. It’s a creative outlet too. Another reason to bake – personally – is the fact that it connects me with my family. So many of my memories (as many people) food is involved.
After the week I’ve had with Ash, I figured it was time to finally write about him.
Last Tuesday my day was spent at the emergency vet – this is after my boyfriend left work early to take me (& Ash). After a few hours there and a bill heading toward $600 we were able to bring him home, after my boyfriend was able to talk his vet into taking Ash the next morning. Ash stayed at the other vet Wednesday to Friday.
As of late after I come home from work I have a routine which I find it hard to stray from. This routine is to let the dog out, so he can do his dog things. While he’s out doing what he does I get a bath ran, because after being on my feet for (normally) 8+ hours I just want to sit down and do nothing for a little while. Bath bombs are my best friend – and some time to time just some good ol’ bubble bath. Hey, I have no problem buying cotton candy bubble bath that comes with a cap in the shape of a unicorn.
Now this is where my confessions (x2!) comes in. I have two problems and it’s time I confess to my weridness.
The most important part of starting a blog is selecting the right name. This name needs to say something about what you’re going to blog about, as well as who you are. I know a lot of people who blog use it as a business, some of us don’t. Some of us just blog to express ourselves and possibly help others who have been through something that we have gone through. We also blog to just get all the daily stress out.
I fall in the section of bloggers who blog to share experiences, creativity and the randomness that is life.Continue reading
2018 is in the books and I know I failed at blogging more than I was. I honestly sat down to blog a few times and I was sure what I was getting ready to write no one truly cared about. I obviously have a lot of self doubt in general, but when it comes to blogging it’s a lot higher than normal. I’m hoping to get better with that this year. In the end I just blog for myself non one else.
I know last year was a struggle and low for a lot of people. We’re all hoping this new year will be a lot better – even just a little better would be great.Continue reading
I know, I know…it’s been a while. Every time I thought I was going to sit down and have a chance to write I always got sidetracked by something else. That’s just been life lately. Continue reading
