These are my TOP FIVE favourite Cat videos. I figured i’d mix it up a little bit and infuse a little bit of humour on my blog. Enjoy!
I’m honestly not sure if my microphone even worked, it was plugged in.. Hopefully the sound is okay for my viewers!
My mood has been absolutely awful lately so I haven’t been able to get any words out. I still don’t feel like I can write anything in an adequate fashion….so here’s some photos of new things instead!
I hate going so long without an update, I really do.. So I figured i’d do a bit of a mashup of what i’ve done this week.
I set up my ring light and started playing around with it. It’s amazing how even the lighting is!
I couldn’t resist snapping this photo of my beautiful Buddy Boy. He is so nice!
I made a new piece of art. I wish my liquitex pens weren’t so streaky. I may have to do some additional purple layers on the background…. of course, i’m my own worst critic.
Made a video about new packaging for Neal Brothers! It’s one of my interests.
I think squishmallows are incredibly sensory friendly and a great tool for anyone who is autistic! They are squishy, great to hug and very soft.
Thank you Kellytoy for sending me these to test out and keep ❤
We concluded our trip in Vernon, BC. One of our favourite towns. The weather kept up with the sun shining non stop.
Our first stop was our accommodations, located in the country, we stayed in a tiny house on a farm. Surrounded by horses, nature and some more incredibly sweet animals.
After we got settled, we went to our very favourite restaurant ever: The Curry Pot. The owners are of nepalese descent. We both ordered dinner specials, I got the Paneer Lababdar and Justin got the Butter Chicken.
We went the next morning to the Vernon Farmers Market. There is a great variety of different things being offered, such as: crafts, food and even a prayer tent.
My favourite is the Crepe Bistro. I got a Nutella Crepe, made fresh right in front of you!
Our next stop was Eatology! Justin found it on Google based on their 4.6 rating. He ordered the Mexican Skillet, completely vegetarian. “oh man it was good!” is his very personable review. I ordered buttermilk pancakes. The coffee is from Oso Negro in Nelson. This restaurant seems like it belongs in Vancouver. It’s hip, the menu is vast and it’s hard to not find something to eat. The water is self-serve and also is really nice – no chlorinated taste (which I am so sensitive to).
We had a really incredible vacation and can’t wait to go on our next one. I hope you enjoyed all my instalments. Travel is fabulous for the soul and makes us feel connected with the world around us.
I have so many things to review (tea, beauty products etc) but I just haven’t had enough time or energy lately.
I did reserve some of my energy and I made this:
I also got brand new glasses:
I saved up some of my tips and dipped in to savings to get this:
I’m SUPER amateur with sewing but I plan on getting some vintage fabric and secondhand supplies to teach myself the basics!
And my Boyfriend spoiled our cats and got them this amazing tree:
I’m also coming up on my 6 month anniversary with work and a cool vacation i’m going to document on my blog!
Thanks for all your incredible support as well.
Thank you so much Loungefly for sending me some really, really cute bags, a wallet and a coin purse!
This week was particularly rough on me. The hours were long and my patience was waning. I don’t think people can understand what it’s like to have an Autistic Shutdown unless they’ve been there before. I am incredibly thankful to my partners at work who were supportive and modified my tasks to make them easier for me to handle. The positive affirmation and kindness goes a very long way and I am grateful.
I have a very long to do list and tackling it will be a challenge. I have today and the next three days off so there is time for contemplation, cleaning and mentally delegating tasks to where it becomes manageable. I often wonder what it would be like to have an active social life and friends but part of me feels like my Cats and my Boyfriend (oh, and family, of course) are more than enough for me.
I find long messages intimidating and I have to be in the right head space to handle it. That’s not to say I can’t respond, I just have to find the correct mental state to breathe deeply and think rationally. Most of the time my thinking is quite abstract and lately I’ve wanted to put my pens to paper and just release the subconscious, colourful flow.
There are parts of me that feel invisible and parts of me that stick out like a sore thumb. I’m a Libra, dammit! Where’s my balance?
