    Bath stuff:
    Taking baths are a huge stress reliever for me. Stress (when not if I allow it) is a big ole ugly temptation to/for me. One of my favorite things I do to battle stress/fatigue is taking long warm/hot baths. These are some of my favorite ingredients to add to my bath water:

    2 cups of baking soda (makes the water incredibly soft and an extra cleansing agent that really does a lot of great stuff. Look it up on the web for more deatails!

    The juice of 1 or two or so lemons (this makes the bath water smell intoxicating and is an astringent and does all kinds of other good stuff. Some people say to be careful about using fresh lemon juice too much because it can bleach the skin and/or burn. It's never happened to me though, again read up on it.

    Dr. Teal's Epson Salts (my favorites are chamomile, lavender and many others, this stuff is fabulous and works miracles for all kinds of aches and pains.

    A fabulous perfumed bubble bath of one sort or the other

    burning lovely smelling candles in the bathroom as I soak & listening to peaceful, calming and encouraging things as I soak...just makes it a spa like atmosphere.

    The next time you're feeling stressed/overwhelmed or feel that "Calgon take me away" deal--try the stuff I listed above and watch your tensions and woe float away!

    Everyday is Thankgiving to me--every single solitary day to me is "Thanksgiving", period. It's FUN and POWERFUL being thankful for the good times and the bad time (cause I LEARN or and ever striving to learn "something" from bad days and times/my mistakes, so I'm purposely making an unofficial daily personal holiday of thanksgivings and going and getting outta my own way to be thankful to not just for the good, but more importantly, for the bad and the ugly days and times too--everyday! BOOM!

    I love it! <3 B) <3

  • arguablysamsonarguablysamson Posts: 1,597Member Member Posts: 1,597Member Member
    Tons of rain and cold now and for the next several weeks. Everyone is sick and calling off. Yucky.

    I still love the rain, though, and the wind.

    This year's Winter is expected to be very cold, much moreso than usual. I just bought some bulky, unfashionable hat, gloves and boots online but very, very toasty and cozy. And all waterproof! I'll be staying warm and dry no matter what.

    It doesn't make a difference what it looks like as long as you're warm. That's the most important thing.

    We had snow here yesterday. 6" of the fluffy white cap. Thank goodness we have a tractor come by to clean the driveway. I clean the deck out back and a space on the grass so that my little Yorkie can get out there to do his business. He is so small that the poor little fellow is almost lost in it if I don't keep it a shoveled off.

    Eeeeks! Sounds cold.
  • arguablysamsonarguablysamson Posts: 1,597Member Member Posts: 1,597Member Member
    We are now (this evening) facing the high temp for the next day (40s) which will get below freezing for a couple of days here in Austin. I soooo get broken in by the cold!

    My mom had 2 poodles that had trouble with that. It must be difficult to whiz when snowbound! At least your Yorkie doesn't mind going out in the cold. Can he maneuver stairs by himself?

    We have been having weather that is in the 40s. Then it freezes at night and we got a bit of snow. Thankfully it has been melting during the day when the sun comes out. I'm not looking forward to extended snow and hope we don't get any blizzards this year.
  • NymbaNymba Posts: 17Member Member Posts: 17Member Member
    When there is a lot of snow on the deck he goes 4 or 5 steps and Whiz. Lol... He knows there is no way he's making down the stairs. I even shovel an area on the grass so that he can do his business. I do try to keep it all cleared though. My exercise.

    You could use puppy pads on your porch or inside your home and that way your baby doesn't have to get out in the cold. I owned several pet stores and the pads were very popular.
