What the Flock?

JoAnns 50% off a regular priced item + 25% off entire purchase had me jumping for joy at the purchase of this flock. 

I've never used flock before.  I have admired the usage of it on projects.  I figure a little bit of glue, the sprinkle of some flock and I'll be good to go. 

I have an Easter card in my mind's eye in which the yellow flock will be perfect. 

Now I just need to make the time to mass produce the project.  I've marked down the evening of April 9th should any of you wish to come and play. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Kenny and Me

I love, love, love my Kindle2. 

I am so very glad I purchased it back in the day. 

For the time being I see no reason to upgrade to the K3 or to get an iPad, unless my fairy godmother or secret admirer would like to bestow one to me.   

What I do see the need for is, is the need to read.

I am almost finished with Love You More by Lisa Gardner and Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua. 

The latest purchases downloaded for the next few weeks in travel and down time include

The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly

Heaven is For Real:  A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo

Live Wire by Harlan Coben

I pre-ordered 10th Anniversary by James Patterson

Have you read a good book lately? 

Do share if so. I am always on the lookout for a good read. 

I prefer to be able to download it as I have become accustomed to the slimness of the Kindle versus the bulk of a book.  

Funny how I thought this would be one of the things I missed most about reading on an e-reader -- the holding of a book and flipping the pages.  

When I get the hankering to do so, I can always visit a bookstore or walk over to my bookshelf in the office or Bevo's Den.   

So, hit me with it.  Leave a comment with a recommendation. 

Please and Thank You. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Slow My Roll

For the second time, in less than 3 months, I have locked my keys in the car outside of Target. 

I definitely need to slow my roll. 

Let's set the stage shall we. 

I have a routine for each Saturday morning.  It starts off with a chai tea latte of course. 

Then I go for a massage followed by a chiropractic adjustment.  Every 6 weeks I get my hair cut and colored.  Every 3 weeks I get my brows done.  In between those appointments are the errands I need to take care of. 

Normally I would take care of these errands during the week.  Doing so is challenging when I am out of town so I am usually running around like a mad woman going from one place to the next in a rush each Saturday. 

I schedule appointments with travel time and roughly a ten minute break in between - if I am lucky. I am usually out and about for 12 hours.   

This past Saturday looked like this: 
Wake at 0715. 

Make the pee pee. 

Shuffle to kitchen.  Fishy kiss Reggie and Spike.  Make chai tea. 

Shuffle back to bathroom.  Shower.  Throw on lotion, clothes, makeup. 

Head out to massage.  Finish punishing but much needed massage.   

After massage stop by Office Depot.  Scowl when discovered they are out of the sheet protector/insert I was in search of.  Leave empty handed. 

Drive across street to gas station for bag of chili cheese Fritos for chiropractor and a drink for me. 

Get an adjustment.  Good crack-a-lackings. 

Drive through Arbys for a mini sammich. 

Head to salon for cut and color.  Sparkles be gone. 

Check to see if Pier 1 has the room spray in stock yet.  No such luck.  Leave empty handed. 

Head over to JoAnns and PetCo for flock and fish food. 

Meet BFF for pho at our joint. 

Head to Home Depot in search of flowers for the planters.  Leave empty handed. 

Finish errands at Target. 

Determine keys are locked in the car of Target's parking lot.  

Call housemate to the rescue as extra set of keys is at home. 

No answer. 

Attempt to call cab companies, yes multiple cab companies, to get a ride. 

Call housemate.  He answers.  Holla! 

Cancel cab ride. 

Move cart of stuff from parking lot to entrance of Target.  Wait for housemate to arrive.

Resemble homeless folks with full cart of stuff with both the BFF and I eating movie snackies from the cart. 

BFF plays music and begins to brainstorm as to how we can panhandle to pass the time.  Laughs ensued.   

Housemate arrives. 

Head home.  Change clothes, get out Snuggies, and watch The Social Network

Hug BFF goodbye and call it a night. 

I really need to pay better attention to my get out of the car routine apparently.  Either that or I need to stop shopping at Target as this is the exact same location I locked my keys in the car at last time. 

On the list of errands this week/weekend?  Get extra car keys made. 

At this stage of my life's game, I find this to be a necessity. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul y'all.

Afternoon Delight

I have been re-introduced to a sweet treat recently. 

It has become an afternoon delight for myself and a few co-workers. 

'Tis true we don't need the sugar but it sure does hit the spot. 

The interesting thing to me is growing up in Texas you could literally find a Slurpee or slushie around every corner. 

Where I live now . . . not so much. 

I suppose that might be part of the allure.

Let the hunting commence! 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Daily Dose

Do you take vitamins daily?

How about herbal supplements?


I do.

2 Omega 3 gummies.  1 wellness formula, which is like a multivitamin on steroids.  2 probiotics.  1 calcium.  1 vitamin D3.  2 psyllium fiber capsules taken 2x a day.  1 B50 complex. 

Yup, yup.  I shove those bad boys down my throat daily, usually right after I finish eating breakfast.
I can be quite the sight at a hotel breakfast table.  

Go on ahead and lookie loo people.    

My health is important to me.  I don't get to eat or rest the way I prefer while I am on the road so this daily dose is my way of taking control and being preventive.  

Monday I had my yearly and physical appointments.  

My blood pressure is perfect according to the doc. 

The first round of results on my blood work came back with 2 thumbs up status.  

I'm feeling pretty good about this, all things considered.  

Do yourself a favor.  Take control of your health and wellness.  You deserve it.  

Really you do. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.  


Heading out on a 3 day tour. 

Little bit of time in the air. 

Lots of time in the car. 

Send save travel vibes my way. 

Please and thank you. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Living on the Go

Hi there.

It's been a hot minute since I posted a blog entry.

I think to do so often but finding the time has been difficult.

Let me back up since that is not an entirely truthful statement.

It is more about making the time.

I am a firm believer we make time for the people and things that are important to us.

For instance, those of you who know me know I am not a morning person. 

So to set my alarm an extra hour early St. Patrick's day to bust out handmade cards for my work peeps, in a hotel (I prepacked the paper, stamps, ink, cutter, cleaner, sharpies, and signature stamp) means it was important for me to do so. 

They were not my best work but everyone seemed to like them regardless. That's the point.  I made the time to spread a bit of love and cheer to those near and dear.

That little tidbit of last week leads me to this -  I'm going to try and do better to post while I am canvassing the Pacific Northwest one trip at a time. 

These days I am away more than I am home but hey, it is how I roll.  After all, this way of life was the iinspiration for the blog name years ago.  I live my life on the go.  No complaints. It is how I do. 

I can get it all done, if I choose to do so. 

Oh, and in case you are wondering I did sport the above headband St. Patrick's day along with a shamrock tie and these

None of my greens matched.  I didn't care.  Nope, not one bit. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.
