JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 351 :: christmas kindness

18 Dec
{rock star}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Last night, after spending days upon days in bed, I finally surfaced. I crawled out of that protective cocoon and faced the light of day. And the fact that I ran out of Gilmore Girls episodes…

Amidst it all, I also felt something new… Aches. All. Over. My body, bless its heart and soul, was done with being sick but still had some healing to do. I could barely move my shoulders with all the aches and pains and finally asked Justin if we had a heating pad… or something that could act like a heating pad. He’s good at finding things so whenever I need something I have learned to ask. To put Justin on the task.

He thought about it for a while and then, just when I thought he had forgotten he walked outside. In the mud and rain mind you. When he returned inside he had his hands full of rocks.

“What are those for?” I asked.
“For your back. I’m going to heat them up, like a hot rock massage.” He replied matter of factly.

Oh… My…  Love… he had me at hot rock massage. My most favorite spa treatment in the world. But could we do it at home?

Turns out, the answer is yes! Justin washed and heated the rocks and then placed them on my back. And then heated them up again for a second round. They weren’t perfect like the rocks I have had in spas … but it was perfectly timed.

It was so gloriously relaxing.
And he is so amazingly kind. A rock star in my book.

It’s times like these when I realize that for all the KINDNESS I have been trying to infuse into my life and others this year, all I really needed to do was open my eyes. Sometimes being kind is remembering to ask for help.

Because the helpers will show up.
Sometimes with rocks in their hands.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 173 :: triple chocolate ice cream

27 Jun
Holy hot sauce! It’s a scorcher. The car read 111 degrees today when I was out running errands. One hundred and eleven degrees!

Which was enough for me to take a nap…. sometimes it’s the only thing that makes unbearable heat in an air-conditioned room go away.

…until Brady decided to wake me up.

So now I’m eating ice cream. Triple chocolate ice cream. Cause a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.

And on a hot summer day, that’s bliss.

More tomorrow. 

Lovemore, 
Jamie

Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 196 :: blueberry watermelon mint swirl

13 Jul

It’s hot here. Over 100 degrees and counting. This week we are projected to hit 106 degrees and be in or close to the 100’s for the next few weeks. While the rest of the country seems to be ready for storms, winds and rain.

While everyone is bracing for whatever pattern is coming their way, we are swirling up a storm over here. Or, I should say Justin is…

Tonight he created a blueberry watermelon swirl with mint.


And thank goodness, because it is so refreshing and we are melting.  It was just the right kind of cool, cool beauty to sip on.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

BLOG – GIFT DAY 180 :: hot or not?

29 Jun

It’s getting hot here…
Blue skies all around us.
And we haven’t seen nothin’ yet. Weather reports predict us to be over 100 next week.

Like 104 and 106 degrees.
And they say it is a DRY heat out here….

One thing is for sure — we have an abundance of sun. And it’s only JUNE.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie
