Just a couple things on my mind today…
I got a moleskine notebook from a industry training event I participated in a few months ago and now it lives on my bedside table amongst other bedside table-related things. Each night before bed, I try to record one thing I am thankful for. Just one sentence. It’s so easy to get caught up in snark and complaints, especially with platforms like Twitter and Facebook–where it seems like everyone vents their frustrations, craving an avalanche of “me too!” and “so sorry for you!” with each complaint. Reading back through my gratitude notebook helps me center my thoughts on how fortunate I am and helps ease worries and preoccupations before bed.
I saw the book “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” in one of Libby’s book piles one time. This was recommendation enough for me, so when I saw it at a used book store, I picked up a copy. I just finished it this morning and it has reminded me to put more thought into where I buy groceries. We have some wonderful friends who work for Suzie’s Farm, which sets up shop in our neighborhood weekly at the farmer’s market. Must be more diligent about swinging by to buy delicious produce, especially before things wind down somewhat for the winter. Luckily we live in such a temperate climate that the farmer’s market operates all year, and the produce varies from month to month.
What has been on your mind this week?
