Journal to Healthier Living – Week 30

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤


Week of  07/29-08/04/2018 – Week 30

“Dear Journal – Happiness.  Such an easy word to say.  Often times we don’t have it.  But you know what I’ve learned?  Happiness is something you have to gather.  It doesn’t come to you.  Find it, claim it and make it yours.  And you know what.  Sometimes happiness isn’t where you think it is.  It can be found in mysterious places.”

National Pretzel Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today is National Pretzel Day – what a way to celebrate pretzels of all shapes and sizes.  How do you like your pretzels?  Straight, twisted, hard, soft, thick or thin?  Then think of all the different flavors you can get – cinnamon, raisin, salted, sesame, chocolate, jalapeno, bacon wrapped, stuffed with peanut butter, sour dough – served with mustard or cheese? AND let’s not forget about pretzel wrapped hot dogs – mmm.   Do you eat them straight out of the bag or do you prepare your own and bake them in the oven?

Pretzels are believed to be the world’s oldest snack and date back as far as 610 AD in Southern France. Monks baked thin strips of dough into the shape of a child’s arms folded in prayer. Add a little salt, and Voila! …the pretzel industry was born.

Pretzels also symbolize good fortune, bringing prosperity and spiritual wholeness with every bite. Wedding couples fell into the practice of breaking a pretzel, much like one might break a wishbone on Thanksgiving.  The person with the larger piece was assured domestic happiness. The pretzel, over time, came to symbolize the “tying of the marriage knot.”

Travels in the South

If happiness had to be explained in a picture – well there you go.  This is one of mom’s all time favorite desserts.  I know – I know.  Has there ever been a dessert that mom has turned her back to?  Of course not.  But this one she said is exceptional.

Right now the current thing for deserts are those molten lava cakes.  This is one of those with a twist.  The inside of this cake is filled with caramel.  Then the topping is ice cream.  All of the dusting around the plate and on top – that would be salted caramel.  Go ahead.  I’ll give you a moment to ooh and aaw.

Mom says it’s very sweet but when you need something straight up with some extra special kick, go for this treat… the salted caramel lava cake.

Christmas Wish For YOU

 Hello friends. I’ve thought long and hard on what exactly I want for Christmas this year.  With all of the endless possibilities, it’s hard to just pick a few things.  Then last night while we were all watching television in the front room of the Hotel Thompson, it hit me.

All I want for Christmas is for my friends here in blogville to be happy, to be loved and to know that you are so special to us here at the Hotel Thompson.  May your holiday season be surrounded by your loved ones.  We wish you all of the happiness in the world ❤

Happiness Tag!

I’ve been tagged by Little Binky and Easy for the Happiness Tag.  I wanted to put some time into this so I apologize for any delay sweet friends.  So without any further delay, here I go.

Five Things That Make Me Happy:

1 – My mom and friends.  Without ya’ll, where would I be?  An awesome pig talking to myself?  Snorts with piggy laughter.  I so appreciate all of my friends here in blogville and in real life.  It’s totally awesome.  AND I appreciate everyone listening to me ramble.  Because if we have learned anything about me, you never know what might come out of my piggy mouth.

2 – Food.  What can I say?  I am a miniature pot bellied piggy and I have to maintain my figure.  I love food.  All types of food.  There is only one thing that I can’t stand.  Do you know what that food is?

3 – My television.  Seriously, my television makes me smile.  I love having it and listening to it and watching it all of the time.  I love those people in the box.  I really do.

4 – Okay, you won’t believe me when I say this and in fact, I can’t believe I’m saying it but my brothers make me happy.  I know!  You are probably thinking, “Pig, are you losing your mind?”  No really.  My brothers Hemi and Houdini make me who I am.  Although Hemi acts like a turd sometimes, if something should happen to me he is the first one there to check on me.  Same thing for me to him.  And the little guy Houdini.  How could he not make anyone happy?  He’s so full of excitement.

5 – My pet rock Bashful.  Shaking my head – I am a proud father of him.  I know he gets into trouble and causes havoc at times but you know what?  He lives!  That’s right.  He travels, he has fun, he experiences life at the fullest and he keeps me on my hooves.  I never know what he will come home with next or who he might bring home.  It’s great and all of his friends keep all of us entertained here at the Hotel Thompson.
