Spread Positive Jam On Toast

MyIntent Project

A friend gave a gift from a company that has a mission to share meaning and positive energy.  It is a pretty cool idea.  You think of one or two words that are meaningful to you.  The word can be a goal or an intention, or just something meaningful.  They press the word into a metal circle and you choose if it is on a bracelet or necklace.  Example words are love, grateful, compassion, purpose, and surrender.  The company is running behind due to a record number of orders and sent an email apologizing. The email included a link to free music.

What is your word?

In the spirit of sharing positive energy, here are some YouTube versions of songs on the album. 

The Sweetest Thing

One of my neighbors was putting up Christmas lights this evening.  As I made my way to the mailbox, I complimented her on how pretty they were. She smiled and told me thank you. 

She then grew the biggest smile and sweetly wished me a happy Chanukah. 

Now, I am not certain why this neighbor of several years thinks that I am Jewish. Perhaps it is because I used to decorate my bushes with blue lights and had a white lit tree. Just always thought it was pretty.  Perhaps she overheard me telling someone about a DNA test that said I am 12% Ashkenazi. 

At any rate, her being so considerate and sending her warm thoughts across the yard was the biggest highlight of my day. 

I smiled back and said thank you. 

              Happy Hanukkah 

What Weekends? (Are Made Of)

Thought I would share what most of my weekends involve.  I think I will get a new shirt to wear on the weekends, “Would Rather be Blogging.”  I have forgotten who first shared this…but thank you!

If anyone knows a talented programmer that would like to be rich beyond belief, please tell them to come up with a medical record system!!

 

 

What are you up to this weekend? Have a good one!

 

 

Rotting Potato 

  
A couple of months back I had a purple sweet potato that was way past its prime. As I was walking it to the bin, I spotted a paper cup that needed tossing.  I picked it up and like chocolate in peanut butter (old TV ad) a marriage was made. 

Two weeks sitting by the sink with an occasional splash of water and it had become root bound. I walked it out to a corner of the yard and stuck in the ground.  

Tonight I dined!  

Have a great week!

Lil' Red and FriendsPatience, recovery, and rehab…

I teach it. I preach it. I skipped it.

Lil’ Red’s whispers grew in my ear.  

Echoing, bellowing, 

“Let’s go to the river,” He shouted.

I ventured out for a short stand up paddle boarding session today.  Tie down straps did not work, the launch fees increased from 3 to 10 dollars.  The crowd started by 9AM when the grounds used to be ghostly until closer to 10:30.

My legs were shaky and my balance faulty.  There were no falls or splashes.  It was clear that I had skimped on my preparation.  My flexibility was surprisingly constrained when transitioning from kneeling to standing.  The muscles in both feet have been spoiled.  A few minutes later, I was back on shore.

It was nice to be back out on the water!

With new exercises in mind, I put Lil’ Red away for another day.
