Choosing the Right Dog

Dogs are beautiful. I love dogs and if I could, I would even have a farm full of them. I’ve had many dogs over the years. Currently, I have two. A Shepherd/Husky mix and a chihuahua. Recently, two people in my life, my friend and my brother mentioned they were looking for a dog. But I could go, on and on about dogs.

Due to my friend and my brother’s status, they are looking for a certain dog in mind. Through connections that I know, I gave them a few selections to choose from: cavaliers, frenchies, and standard poodles. But my friend has hopes for a pomskie and my brother has plans for a medium dog who he doesn’t have to walk every day. My brother mentioned a few breeds to me, as well. I hope I can assist in any way I can. After all, I love dogs. 

In addition, I, as well am looking for a dog. I don’t know how much time my Shepherd/Husky has left. She has arthritis due to an accident she incurred before we met. I’m leaning towards a standard poodle but my boyfriend is leaning towards a labrador and we both suggested a bull terrier. But honestly, we won’t start really looking until after she passes.

Spice Goals (Getting to know my spice rack.)

On Instagram, I find myself following accounts such as https://instagram.com/riorganize?igshid=mf3c1oq7b1we and https://instagram.com/thehomeedit?igshid=i5gp2nns7u5n. The accounts are a meticulously neat persons dream. I don’t know why but I’m drawn to pictures of luxurious organization or reading blogs at http://www.bloglovin.com about home decor. It’s a mindless self-indulgence of something I aspire towards (mastering closet organization or building a dream kitchen…). Then reality hits and I think to myself when will minimalist decor be on it’s way out. I don’t even know those people (whoever they are?). Although, seconds later I’ll be browsing The Container Store’s website. Lately, I’m interested in the kitchen category and I found myself ooing and aahing at spice racks. I have a vision of organizing my spices. It’s a future project in the works. A goal of mine. Perfect for an amateur home cook like me.

I feel an organized spice rack may help me become a better cook. It might assist in recognizing the spices I do use and eliminating those spices that are unidentifiable to me. Also, I’m inspired to ditch the grocery store aisle of spices and shop from a dedicated spice merchant or even shop at a spice specialty shop online. This could expand my mind by starting with a kit or something. There is so much to learn. For example, what spices are go good together. And I cannot wait to get started.

Who knew getting to know one’s spice rack could be a goal. Goals are what sets the rhythm in my life. Goals keep you motivated without feeling adrift in the world. And once you have completed a goal it brings self-confidence. I have many goals. There are many different goals you can have. You can also ask yourself, “Is there one goal that you would like to accomplish in this lifetime”?
