|My NYC eyeshadow via Influenster, what do you think? I think it's too dark for my coloring, but I do like the way it pops my eyes; another great parking spot at the Casper, WY mall; cheesy broccoli soup & Rage by Stephen King as Richard Bachman (a VERY spooky October book, one of the creepiest school shooting books I've ever read. I'm definitely not alone either, because it's apparently out of print now!); Rocking a scarf for the first time this fall!|
I wanted to make sure I started this post right and told you the facts.
Fact: Trailer life is hard in the winter. Even harder this year because our heater is broken! We thankfully have a space heater, but our pipes have been frozen for almost 48 hours and our cozy little place has stayed at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
I spent over an hour yesterday boiling snow so I'd have water until Ryan got off work and could bring home some gallons.
Do you know how much snow it takes to make a little bit of water?
A lot, that's how much.
If you're anything like me, you could use a vacation right now, even if it's just a mental one. So check out this place!
My Prescott friend Rachel spent a little time in my hometown of Flagstaff, Arizona last week and shared an adorable childhood tradition.
And then my Flagstaff friend Steffani made a fun trip to Sedona, Arizona!
For some reason Ryan was looking up things to do in Kentucky and he came across Mammoth Caves. I am so excited to check these out someday, especially Lost River Cave!
Caitlin has put up so many gorgeous Ireland photos. I am having fun seeing our own country before we travel abroad (with a little one in tow, what a strange thought!) but I am definitely very excited to check out Ireland someday!
This cute EuroDisney commercial from 1992 makes me smile. It's been a long time since I've been to Disneyland, but I'd say about half of those things reminded me of it and the other half seemed new and exciting.
And a bonus link... Ryan sent me an old article this week written by someone who lives "primitively." (They had jobs and car, etc., but lived as primitively as possible)
It's a long article so it's okay if you don't have time or don't want to read it... but one of the things he mentions is that our society is set up in a way that really doesn't allow a primitive lifestyle. If you have a permanent residence, you need to pay property tax. If you're camping and find an area you don't have to pay, you'll likely be harrassed by park/forest rangers after a day or two too many.
I'm curious... have you ever considered giving it all up and living primitively? If so, what kept you from doing it?
Also, if this is Pay Day for you, please consider donating to my friend Sylvie's cause! Even $5 is helpful!
