I got to thinking on my way home from work that I had some inspiration and motivation to write. I was sitting over at the dog park/sports area by my place with the wee pup and enjoying some sunshine and watching someone with a young (im guessing eight weeks or thereabouts) puppy. It got me thinking that the wee puppy, since he was introduced to the family is not too far off from reaching my hips in height and developing quite the personality. Im sitting here writing this while hes enjoying a nap near me; when stretching out, he can cover about half of the couch and loves a good cuddle. Besides getting cuddled by the dog, Ive been doing alot of things offline like helping to build scaffolding, spending time with family, working, sleeping, meeting some new people and introverting with the pup.
Music and books have been on constantly; some of my favourites from the last bit are:
*Jax (Victoria’s Secret, it’s so good!)
*Destiny Rodgers (Tomboy)
Among some classics like ACDC, Lynard Skynard, Def Leopard and more.
Me and Wee pup have finished:
*Agatha Christies The Labours of Hercules: A Hercule Poirot Mystery
*After The Funeral: A Hercule Poirot Mystery
*The Republic of Pirates: Being the true and surprising story of the Caribbean pirates and the man who brought them down
*American Gods (a wonderful read/listen always)
It’s been nice to just come home after work and do the cleaning and whatever other little things I need to do, ive been working a somewhat settling schedule where I work between 8 to 7 days in a row and have two days off or work 8 have two days off, work one day then have two more days off and then work for 5-8 days in a row. I love the job; there are parts id change; however, given everything else, it’s not the worst, and I can leave whatever is at work and come home and just be me instead of bringing whatever is happening with me and thinking about it on my time off. Having a puppy helps with that, too, cause I think of what’s in front of me and what’s happening around me more than what’s happening in the future or anything of the like.
I decided to do some little things for myself when im home and have a little time available, and it’s been nice. The little things ive been doing are;
*listening to books while cleaning/walking
*doing a conditioning hair mask once a week or so (if I remember)
*playing Pokemon Go
*exploring places ive seen in cars/walking
*sitting outside and just listening to the breeze/life going on
*looking at cat/dog videos
*doing a pedicure
And listening to my body when it says it needs a few hours to sit and essentially do nothing, among other things I can’t think of right now.
Lately, I can’t seem to get enough sleep; no matter what time I go to bed, how long the sleep is and what I do to help get a restful sleep, im considering going to see someone about my sleeping issues and seeing if there’s something I can do/take to help cause melatonin does nothing for me. Teddy keeps me company when I can’t sleep, usually spinning on his wheel or climbing the cage and touring, hes quite the little dude. Wee pup seems to be a little magnet for me; he knows where I am at all times (when home), what im doing, and he barks if he thinks im taking too long to do whatever it is im doing, hes quite the pup, the personality is strong, loving and a mix of relaxed and energetic as hell (fits with the family well) and hes been training and gotten so much better, still learning but hes better.
This post is long, so im going to end it here, I hope you’re having a lovely day, and I will see you soon with another post!
Till Next Time,
