I’m still trying to learn the whole work/life balance. Scarlet was at camp for most of the summer and Des was mostly glued to my side. We had some great adventures – small and large – and we took a series of small trips. In fact, the kids even went away without me a few times! During those times, I’d work hard to catch up on any of my two businesses but it was hard to keep ME afloat. Now the back to school rush is in FULL FORCE and every morning is a race with a pounding heart. Did I pack the right lunches and the right water bottles and the right homework and the right paperwork and the right library books and the right sneakers on the right day and in the right backpack? Whew.. and are they wearing the right backpacks??
Then I get home and I nearly sink into the couch, except, I generally have three or four deadlines in one day! Phone calls and video chats. Right now that’s when the workmen come to do the upstairs renovations. Did the cat eat? Did the dog eat AND go out? Are all 11 chickens safely in their coop? Speaking of which, are there any eggs? This is a typical morning for me – ALL BEFORE 9:00AM. It’s no wonder that I’m now committed to taking time out for myself for little daily delights.
1 – First of all, we are going to talk about Sejoyia Coco-Roons. What are they? They’re healthy, clean-eating, non-GMO treats that my whole family enjoys! I found them at Walmart in the gluten-free set. It couldn’t have been easier!
Coco-Roons are the original superfood cookie and they’re organic, gluten-free, vegan, Paleo, and non-GMO. Not only that, they’re made with no refined sugar. What ARE Coco-Roons made with? Coconut and cashews, and they’re sweetened with pure, organic maple syrup. I love that they’re made with a handful of ingredients I can pronounce, AND, they provide nutritional value! They’re 100% wind powered too! I got the Brownie Flavor – made with the finest raw, organic cocoa. It has a delicious deep, rich flavor. And the Lemon flavor is light and refreshing! Do I have a favorite? It’s a tie!
That said, Coco-Roons are wonderfully versatile. I use them as a pre-bedtime snack sometimes too. In fact, that’s why this is the 1st of my “little delights.” I love the time of the day that belongs to ME. Then I kick into these guilt-free snacks.
2 – I delight in going to the dog park during this transitional time of year. There are both warm and cool breezes. Greenery with a hint of golden. I can’t get enough. Athena is pretty happy with our brisk walks and our slow runs too.
3 – My third delight is raspberry picking on our own property. This is our best year yet and I can’t get enough!
4 – My fourth daily delight is reading a book while watching the chickens in their coop. They are hilarious!
5 – For my fifth daily little delight, I like to create something. It can be simple, like a lunch salad or a new way to eat toast. Or I’ll take photos! Maybe I’ll bake something, or even make something. I’m more crafty than I realize sometimes!
