Happy National Dress Up Your Pet Day & National Vision Board Day (& National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day) !
It was a crisp, sunny day here in Vancouver city. Duncan and I had a run through Kits beach and the most part of the seawall. A lot of energy was burned indeed.
I brought him home, tuckered out. He usually howls when I leave, but he just stayed put on the couch with his eyes barely open and a, “you don’t need me to come with you, do you ?” look on his face.
I darted out to the nearest dollar store to get some Bristol board for vision boards! … and glue sticks and markers and stickers.
Duncan had mentioned he wanted to go with something subtle, yet elegant for Dress Up Your Pet Day, so I picked him up this classic glitter cowboy hat. Just his size.
He enjoyed every minute of the photo shoot
Then Christina came home and we got to work envisioning our future. We had limited collage material. This is a regret. I should have done a better job hunting and gathering supplies. I felt my visions of the future were limited to alternative health flyers and the stickers that Kathleen had gifted me.
We set the scene according to a how-to-vision-board blog post found on Pinterest. It told us to
- clear off table space
- gather all crafting and collage supplies
- arrange your healing crystals around your work station (obvi)
- light candles
- sing to your angels
We followed all these steps and added some more! We included:
- drink a couple bottles of wine
- order some vegan pizzas in retaliation of National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day
- take a few clamazipans, for good measure
- put on some trance music to incite visions
I’ll reiterate here that I felt limited by the collage supplies and add fuzzy from the wine-clamazipan medley.
But I think I can buy into the laws of attraction – if you envision something you will receive it – plan for your dreams concept. However I just really can’t get behind looking at a sheet of Bristol board with stamps and stickers and magazines modge podged on it everyday to achieve my wishes.
Chrissy was a real wiz at it
Her board was well organized and strategized. Much like her life. Probably why she’s highly successful in her chosen field of geology, despite her complete lack of knowledge on magic gemstones and healing crystals.
Mine was considerably less organized and much more dog focused.
Another day, another thing I never did before !
Hopefully my future does entail more dogs and bags of money !!!
Up next is National Hat Day and National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!
