Wellness

Yeah to April it’s here and soon we will celebrate Earth Day so I am looking forward to that. Also in this month I am going to dedicate some words I used everyday, that really don’t make sense like OMG and OG or Jesus this and that. Every little thing that goes wrong these words come flying out, like if I am walking and I stamp my foot or I saw something in a store, these are the first words that comes to mind and I find it very dramatic. So I have to try and stop saying them.

I did a DMV practice test on-line and I went on Tuesday and took the test and pass. So I should start learning to drive soon I think, in my mind I see myself parking but not driving I am a very good parker in my mind. My hd double park one day and I was alone a spot came vacant and I couldn’t move the car. So embarrassing, I will learn just to get myself out of situation like that. Have a great weekend and remember God is good all the time.

Yesterday  hd and I were talking and we decided it was time to build our house in the Islands near the beach. This  would be our first big project together and I am super excited and thrilled and hope he we would agree on everything.  We look on Houzz web site and saw lots of beautiful homes and fell in love with two of them.  We want to build a little guest cottage first,  before we get started on our family home, in this way we will have extra money coming in and also we could be hands on for the next project. This little cottage is one of  many homes we saw, it reminds me of the houses I grew up around.  Nothing to big but livable, inviting and able to clean in a second.  At the end of the year I will be heading down to get things started. 

Leaving Barbados thirty years ago and coming here I never thought I would ever miss home because everything here are so exciting and I love it.  But I think its time for me to relax and I want to do it the Island way, I miss the beaches the breeze and mostly having a garden. Whenever I go home I stay with my mom and it is really great seeing and being with my family for that short time we have together, however I don’t like moving that much or talking and all this running around or even going over to they house I just like to stay put, you would think people in the island would be lay back.  I don’t know where they are going because the place is not big but I do get they mean well and I love them for that. By the time I get back to New York I’m more tired then before. So having a place of my own will make me a little more settled and give me a little more time to hide out and have a cocktail before letting anyone know I am in the land. God is good.

 

 

 

 

 

November

Well hello November I’m so happy you are here, with your ever-changing color of leaves always put me in a good mood for the holidays. This is the time to cool your body down, with some brown sugar honey and peppermint scrub, which will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated, it will also peel off dry skin and smooth you into this crisp weather. I sometimes get lost at this time of year,  it’s like the mysteries of nature while the leaves turning different colors, and everyone a little more cheerful the fruits and vegetable in full bloom. like you know something good is coming and you have to hurry and prepare yourself for it. There’s so much to do in getting  yourself ready.  As a tradition I always buy the Mulling Spices and boil on a low heat, and let me tell you the scent is so nice you will be smiling all the time, that’s one of the first things I do to get me going and also my oolong organic tea which I tend to drink a lot of in the winter. How about you guys let me know in the comments. God is good.
