Hot or Cold? Hmm…

Truthful Tuesday with PCGuyIV posed the question: Would you rather endure cold winter weather or hot summer weather?

Cold winter weather seems to be my body’s fiercest enemy so I’d rather the heat of summertime. Growing up in New York I didn’t complain about neither because it just was what it was and there was no way around it. “Snow days” weren’t as quickly declared back then as they are now so I spent many a days trudging the streets in deep snow to get to either school or work in frigid temperatures. People always say “Oh, you’re from New York so you should be used to this,” but during the 15 years I lived in Florida, getting assimilated to the scorching hot temps was par for the course and now cold air hits me like a ton of bricks. The weather in my current hometown has much milder temperatures so neither the cold nor heat are too overbearing.

Yep, It’s Valentine’s Day!

Whether you woke up with some excitement for today or nothing but contempt for “Cupid”, the important thing is

YOU WOKE UP!


Even if you don’t have the love of a significant other or amity amongst your neighbors, always be mindful to

LOVE YOURSELF!


If it’s chocolate you crave, there may still be some on sale from Halloween. Treat yourself, even if someone else blessed you with milk chocolatey goodness because one thing for certain is

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE!!!


And whether you find yourself in the arms of Mr./Ms. Right or Mr./Ms. Right Now, remember

COVID DOESN’T TAKE HOLIDAY!


By default, we all inherited a village of bloggers we’ve bonded with over written word. Hopefully, my words reach all who need to receive them this Valentine’s Day:

THIS MAY BE THE ONE DAY YOU FEEL ALONE/LONELY BUT FOR SOME, THIS IS THE ONE DAY THEY FEEL LOVED.

Aromatherapy Lotions

Challenge from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie: This week write your response to the word – Lotion. It may be relaxing, comforting, curative, a life saver, even magical – go where the prompt leads you.

Believe it or not, lotion can have a calming effect on the senses. I was a non-believer for most of my adult life, never desiring to purchase fragranced lotions, which often caused an adverse skin reaction. After learning my son suffered the same fate, I doubled-down on purchasing “free and clear” everything.

Thankfully my body has changed and lotions no longer cause any issues. Realizing that, I developed a guilty pleasure allowing me to enjoy a new scent every day, depending on my desired mood.

Aromatherapy fragrances at Bath & Body Works are easily my favorite and I’ve overindulged enough to earn lots of free product. An intervention may be necessary!
