Day started with this, an idea Corina told me about:
(the old fashioned way)
Not so complicated. When you start the water, before it starts boiling, put the dash of salt & throw some cinnamon in there too.
Makes the house cozy-fragrant. Boil the oats. If you like brown-sugar, 2 teaspoons per serving works ok, and throw some raisins in too, for sweetener. I sprinkle flax seeds on the top, and sometimes some walnut pieces, cus I like the crunchy. Goooooood mornin’!
Today’s music, just for you (two songs) (but totally worthwhile auditory time investment).
What I’m having for lunch: Uhhh…
What we’re having for dinner: Pasta. Angel hair pasta with parmesan sauce. A mind-boggling salad with cucumbers, romaine, tomatoes, green onions and little itty bitty carrot medallions that I’ll cut myself, so there might be finger bits in there too. I would love some crusty, home made bread with all this, but it’s a family birthday so I doubt I’ll escape the day cake-free.
K, each day this week I’ll post a blurb, and three ideas of STUFF TO DO, that might enrich your life, or at least make your throat tickle.
So like, last night I evolved. That’s right, you weren’t just imagining my sloped forehead… No, there’s this patience building game called ‘Human Age’ that Robin introduced me to a month or so ago. I’d been spending some time at it each day, trying to get my character strong and competent. It takes awhile at first. Finally, she was all established in the opening world, and had built the strength and ability to kick people’s asses competently, and make big loot, and that was enjoyable. I was just going to hang out there for awhile and flex my mastery. And suddenly, yesterday, I was just so freakin done with that. It was time to go, time to be helplessly new and inept again. I couldn’t stay in that place another moment.
It got too small.
It’s just a game, but… I was a little proud to choose patheticness in age two over the known and previously navigated route. It kinda restarted my energy and enthusiasm, and I find that attitude still lingering around this morning.
Sometimes being comfortable is the very worst thing to be.
Stuff you could DO today
1. Get you some marshmallows, and pop a few in the microwave. Set it on 40 seconds. If you haven’t done this before it will BLOW YOUR MIND.
2. Volunteer at your local library or food share. They could use you, trust me.
3. Paint your toe-nails alternating colors in jarring combinations. If you have an eleven year old daughter, this has probably already been done for you.
And have a terrific day.
