Why don’t cereal boxes have ziploc bags in them? Wouldn’t that keep the cereal fresher? Is there an assumption that the cereal won’t last long enough to get stale? Am I the only one with 7 different kinds of cereal in the cupboard right now? I like cereal, but Forrest and I can’t get through all of that very fast…
On the sign at a landscape supply place on the way in to work today: We never really grow up, we just learn how to act in public. Yes! So true! In fact, it would be better if we found more of our childlike qualities again (even in public when appropriate) – running, yelling, playing, coloring and creating for no reason but the exploration of stuff we find… Let’s definitely NOT grow up even when we continue to act nice in public, okay?
Daily Truthbomb from Danielle LaPorte that struck such a stong cord: Have the courage to suspend your dream so you can appreciate your current reality. Live in the moment. Don’t live in the future. Don’t give up your dreams, but don’t live in yearning for them. I’ll bet living in the moment, in your current reality, will get you closer to those dreams anyway. Are you listening, self?
Do you choose a word for the upcoming year, a little message to remember and live by and strive for? I never have but I feel like I should for next year, even though I’m not sure what that word will be. Not sure yet.
If you make nothing else this holiday season, make this. So easy. So good. So satisfying to smash candy canes with my marble pestle while Forrest happily munched cereal and enjoyed the whacking sound. In fact, I believe he was smashing his cereal – that’s a must when eating “hexagrams” (off-brand Crispix). He also needs to squish a finger in his cheese-stick rounds before he’ll eat them, and ‘pop’ fish crackers too. Destructive little guy.
Happy Thursday friends. I’m happy to say I’m this close to being finished with my Christmas shopping, which will be incredibly early for me. I’ll probably still procrastinate wrapping until the last minu– no, I won’t. I dumped Procrastination for the jerk he is a few weeks ago. No going back for “friends with benefits” now, buster! = )
