I've been so cold lately. We've had temperatures in the mid to lower 20's (even colder in the mornings) and I'm having a hard time staying warm. Too wimpy to go out running. Who could blame me? Just trying to listen to my body and honor what it's telling me.
Whether it's wrapping myself in a warm throw, putting an extra quilt on the bed at night, and propping up socked feet near the fireplace in the daytime. And hot tea. Thank goodness for hot tea.
Extremely hungry this week, too. I found myself craving greens all morning, not smoothie greens, but warm greens.
Warmth is what I want.
That bunch of Swiss chard was calling my name. So for lunch, I ate the entire bunch (yes, all at one sitting), sauteed with lots of garlic and topped it over some brown rice and curried chickpeas.
|The children's school choirs performed tonight at our local Barnes and Noble bookseller. Eliza took her turn at the gift wrapping station with the student council. |
That was a neat opportunity for her.
|How can you not be happy looking at this boy right here?|
One of my all time favorite pictures of Isaac.
|The older choir tenderly sang Grown Up Christmas List. Have you ever heard this song? I love these lyrics. My eyes filled with tears as I looked into each of those hopeful, innocent faces.|
How lucky we were to see Santa over in the children's section. This was the perfect opportunity to have a visit. Isaac agreed with me that he seemed like the real deal. Or maybe he could be one of the elves.
You just never know.
