Hey There!Welcome to Nut House Central: An intimate inside look at my crazy life. Where squirrels and nuts are always the order of the day. -Kammie S "Mamma Squirrel"
My finds are from a couple of antique stores I visited last weekend.
I cannot wait to see what you have!
Well, I waited all last week for my home inspection for my daycare. They have not come yet. Ugh! I just want it over with!
Last Sunday, our Pastor was encouraging us to “fast.” That means something different for everyone, and there are different types of fasting. It’s about deepening my relationship with God, and ultimately denying a want for my flesh. The Holy Spirit immediately piped in before I was fully committed to anything. No alcohol. Many of you may say it’s no big deal. I’m not an alcoholic-I do like a glass of wine a few nights a week or a margarita or two on the weekends. So what a perfect selfish want to deny my flesh. Cause it’s not a need. So can say that as of right now, I have been 7 days with none. 😁. It’s a 21 day fast, but maybe I’ll make it more permanent.
Saturday, we went roaming and ended up in Bowie. Small town which is always good. Found a cute place for dinner. Sweet Boys Diner. Friendly and simple. I’m also trying to be more conscious of what I eat. So instead of fried anything, I chose the club and barely touched the fries. Again, may not seem hard but I’m an emotional eater and I do not like to waste food. Here’s a glimpse.
Then I was looking for coffee. Sun was down, and I was cold. No surprise there. Around the corner we found a place called Lazy Cowboy Coffee. Oh my goodness. Super awesome people, great coffee, and peanut butter keto fudge!
I still have 3/4 of it in the fridge!
Sunday we planned to go back for lunch, but it didn’t work out. We found ourselves in Gunter. There’s a shop that had some new rusty cars out front. I called the number on their sign because I didn’t want anyone to call the police saying there was some nosy lady walking around. Not only did I get an OK, the co-owner showed up and gave us a grand tour of his shop! They do in-house custom restorations! The things you see on TV? They do it all! And they are amazing! So I am hoping that by taking some pictures and sharing with them, he’ll keep me in the back of his mind if they need any promotional photography. I also said I can take pictures of their customers with their finished restorations. I will give you a few examples of what I saw. I will probably post quite a few and try to incorporate them as I was in heaven and took lots!
Can you believe I’m actually finished talking! Praying for everyone to have a wonderful week!
This was me in December getting ready to do a family photo shoot. I was excited! And I’m trying to learn to self market, self promote and be better at self love.
That being said, as I try to move forward in my photography business I’m frustrated at the energy particular people are putting in to tell me I need to be something I’m not. I need to “brand” myself, have a certain look.
I don’t show up in trashy clothes. And as far as I’m concerned, my “brand” is the quality of my work and how I treat people. Why are they telling me I have to have a different “look?” My hair isn’t up to par, my clothes aren’t stylish enough, etc.
I just don’t feel I have to change me to be competitive. It’s not who I am. It’s taken me years to get to this point. I’m having a hard time understanding the purpose of what this person said.
There’s a part of me that feels like they are more worried about themselves being associated with me and what people will think. And that is not my problem. That is not my drama. That is on them. And that is not what they want to hear. So the battle continues.
The dandelion is from my backyard today.
