focus

tasting ::   frosted mini-wheats with rice milk, peanut butter on apples, blueberries and white nectarines in vanilla coconut yogurt, salted peanut butter stuffed pretzels,  creamy garlic vegan pasta with sautéed zucchini and homegrown tomatoes,

hearing ::   darren rowse talk about dreams from the world domination summit. {i very much would like to go to this conference next year}.

smelling ::  coffee. i’ve been working and meeting in wonderful cafes this week and even though i don’t drink coffee, i smell like coffee. i’m starting to associate the smell with productivity.

seeing ::   connections being reconnected. friends from high school – one on one and talking about stuff that really matters: home, life, dreams. talking to people from the way back is super comforting and inspiring at the same time. also, a whole lot of house of cards – watched half a season in one day!

feeling ::   more at ease and super excited.  the two-year old got a hold of some calming balm magic and has way mellowed out this week. the healthy, happy, sane teacher is now international – one of our registrants is from the netherlands! friends, our message of teachers claiming their self-care is spreading.  join us?

wishing/hoping ::  for more registrations to roll in (early bird pricing ends 8/9) and to keep enjoying what is left of summer break.

good

tasting ::   fried tofu bun (chilled vermicelli salad), bbq chips x a million, green smoothies, lemon orzo with cucumbers and feta, summer vegetables wrapped in wheat corn tortillas, plums, white nectarines, watermelon, popsicles, vegan pizza on cornmeal crust, rice chex with rice milk, grilled chicken burrito with avocado + local tomatoes.

hearing ::  myself yelling at my kid and then beating myself up about it. {tough week all around and then it got SO MUCH BETTER}. also old97s live hitchhike to rhome. you can too! download it here.

smelling ::  chlorine on my arms from all the pool time.

seeing ::   faces i love on the computer screen. why did none tell me of the magic of skype? or was i not listening? dude.

feeling ::  relieved – good results on the mama health front! hopeless because living with a moody two-year old brings out my inner moody two-year old. supported because my people know just what to say to a mama having a pity party

wishing/hoping ::  for some self-compassion and some more patience for my daughter. who knew being two was so hard? also can we stop calling it ‘terrible twos’ and start calling it ‘tumultuous twos’ instead?
