This week was all about expressing gratitude, and we did take a few minutes before eating on Thursday to go around and each express what we were grateful for. People hate being put on the spot, I know…but I really believe encouraging people to open up about what they are grateful for, makes them feel happier. I hope it worked!
It was a super busy week working, shopping, cooking, baking, hosting, cleaning and of course eating and drinking! Yesterday was my day to REST and eat leftovers and I did a lot of both. Since I don’t eat turkey, I couldn’t be more carbed out– so today, I am totally looking forward to a good morning workout. Then Mitch and I have still more to be grateful for as we get to see Kyle and Nicole and meet Nicole’s family! Very excited!!!
Meanwhile, out in the garden, the herbs, lettuce and tomato seeds I planted last month are growing nicely, but I have to admit, it is the “recycled” scallion tips that are not only growing like crazy, but still just an awesome science experience to me. Teachers, parents with kids of all ages and anyone that thinks they don’t have a green thumb need to try the scallion gardens. Once again, just use your store bought scallions as you would and then take the little end that is left and stick in some dirt. Add water and in just a few weeks you will end up with these…(I have a lot of them, just couldn’t fit them in the pic)
If, like me (and most everyone) you over indulged, get up and get those muscles moving. It will be good for your body and your head. One thing we know now for sure is that the body and brain cannot be disconnected from one another! It is just not possible. Thank you, Dr. Chopra, for reminding me of how deep that connection is. And more about that next week! Until then, enjoy your weekend.
