Hey girls and boys. Getting ready to put away laundry and go to bed... Pretty exciting stuff!
Had dinner tonight with my brother, sister, and a friend of my sisters. They had broiled chicken, onions, yellow squash, and zuchinni. I had a steamed yellow squash, a steames zuchinni, steamed broccoli, curried lentils, and some of their veg mix. Ate too much, and I think my curry powder may have a bit 'o' black pepper in it, but, what the hay, right? The curry wasn't really satisfying the taste buds somehow... I added Herbamare, and granulated garlic. That got 'er done.
Lunch today was steamed carrots, celerey, and some fresh ginger. Alas I wasn't really full after that... Went for a spoonfull of macadamia nut butter dipped in carob powder. Yum! Also did 2 Tbsp. of ground golden flax seeds, soaked in water for 10 minutes with about a 1/4 tzp. of cinnamon powder in it. A healthy dose of EFA's, and the blood sugar balancing benefits of cinnamon, made for a satisfying meal topper.
Looks like I won't be going to the conference as I had so hoped, but, these things happen. Money, work, and time played a role. Some trickery on the part of a third party had my hopes up pretty high. But, those were most expertly dashed... The trick is, evidently, not to get your hopes up, and to just let whatever happens be OK. I think Nick Hexum of 311 said it well: "You can't be let down if you don't expect the world... Expect to lay awake there by your sleeping girl." Such is the way of things...
On the note of music... It's really good to "re"listen to Tori Amos' Under The Pink. A FANTASTIC album, that only seems to mean more to me as my collective life experiences build... If you've never heard, I really reccoemnd it! Beautiful. Trent Reznor of my old favorite band, Nine Inch Nails, even makes a guest vocal appearance on one of the tracks. Weird, eh'?
Nothing too interesting today. Just wanted to check in, share a few thoughts,a nd wish you all the best. So, here's too you all ~James
