Today, I need to ground myself in the fabulous things around me. This Thursday, those things that I am thankful for include:
…for making a huge pot of my butternut squash and carrot soup on Monday. This time, I roasted the veggies for an hour before combining them with the chicken broth and blending the heck out of it. So good when served with some Trader Joe’s apple chicken sausage and grated Romano cheese.
…these fun images from lululemon that I found while doing some personal Christmas shopping:
I definitely tweeted this one to Hans:
…being able to take a pup walk to our polling location on Tuesday night. It was a beautiful evening in Cleveland and I was happy to be able to get outside one more time before that dreaded white stuff starts to appear…
…this beautiful bracelet recently found on Etsy that needs to find its way on my wrist:
…and the message of this similar one:
“The beauty of doing nothing”. Beautiful.
…the new “Advancing Practice Class” at Nishkama Yoga. Part vinyasa flow, part workshop, it’s 90 minutes where I get to really push myself in my yoga practice. Since attending it, I’ve gotten into poses I never thought possible: headstands, arm balances, binds. It’s really exciting to see the growth that can occur when you slow down the flow to discuss all the positions you come across along the way.
…for making popovers. I’m all about Alton Brown’s rule of don’t buy any kitchen unitaskers, but I love making these dinner rolls for my family:
It’s so fun to watch them pop up over, and the entire pan is gone by the end of dinner!
…the post currently sitting in my drafts folder that I am afraid to hit publish on. Hoping to have the courage tomorrow. Stay tuned…
What are you thankful for today?
