6 Days ’til 40: Delicious Delicacies

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and my partner and I had a wonderful dinner in a nice restaurant, something we do not normally do because we are very budget conscious.  It was such a lovely experience and I am so glad we went out.  We had a delicious meal and the atmosphere was pleasant and there were no kids – we were in heaven.

Yet, as I looked around the restaurant, something saddened me.  I realized that many people, even on a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, struggle with whether to go for a diet dinner or a delicious delicacy.  Where is the balance in the equation?

I LOVE it when my daughters teach me important lessons or remind me of lessons I have previously learned, but somehow “forgotten” as I go about my daily routine.  The photos I have included in this blog are visual representations of the lesson my older daughter reminded me of this week: Chores should be fun!   Read the rest of this entry »

IMG_5912

You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers.  In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices. ~ Deepak Chopra

106 Days ’til 40: Palm Berries – Acai???

 

This morning I was grumping.  I was grumping because we have a palm tree on the path that leads to the main entrance of the school and it is making a mess.  There are purple berries everywhere and as the students walk down the path they stomp on these purple berries and then track them into the school.  I was grumping because the gardeners are not sweeping the berries aside, and I was grumping because our poor custodians are going to bear the brunt of the realities of floors stained with deep purple juice.

I have a confession to make.  Those who know me will not be surprised.  I am a strong Dr. Google follower.  It is true.  I consult Dr. Google with all sorts of ailments, mostly in search for cures that are cheap, holistic, natural, or do not involve my having to head to the doctor.
