It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~ E.E. Cummings
Life is meant to be a challenge. For some, their challenge is learning how to think for oneself. For others, it’s perseverance. And others, it’s figuring out how to accept defeat gracefully. Often in life, I’ve learned the most from the things that didn’t happen. It’s not easy to admit ones failure can actually produce better results because you keep looking for other solutions or alternatives.
What’s new this week? You may have guessed we had to course correct with our weekend plans. I missed a step on our stairs and took a pretty hard tumble. Fortunately, I bounced off the closet at the bottom of the stairs and managed to bruise both sides of my body. (I keep trying to get my career as a stunt double to take off.) No broken bones or household items, just a few gnarly bruises. Knowing I was going to feel rather terrible on Sunday, I was in search for ways to help my muscles heal and also comply with COVID restrictions. Then I remembered the British Hubby and I had unused gift cards at our local float tank facility. Have you ever soaked tired muscles in Epsom salts. Essentially, a float tank would enhance that experience plus add in numerous other positive benefits.
What’s new in keto land? This week, I’ve been trying to find ways to increase our veggie consumption. In the summer, I enjoy eating salads for lunch and dinner. Now it’s the darkest part of the year, and I really want to snuggle up with comfort food. One obvious place to add more veggies into my diet was breakfast. Avocado on keto toast is pretty amazing on it’s own. Adding in a veggie omelette brings this to a whole new level.
SkeinHerder Ponders: This week I discovered robot pro wrestling. This is really neat. If you haven’t seen it check it out above.
I leave you with this cute photo of Burt sleeping. Look at those toe beans. Burt has become quite the cuddly kitty with us wfh.
