So after taking it easy all day yesterday and boosting my carb intake up slightly I can report that physically I am feeling a little better this morning. Between the increased energy I provided my body and the rest I believe that my body is winning the war on what ever foreign invaders are attacking it. Despite the fact that I am still not feeling 100%, my mind is still trying to tell me to hit the treadmill. I have to remove these thoughts from my head for a few more days.
So today too will be another take it down day and I will get some fresh air and spend some time with like minded people at the Saturday Morning Market. It has been 3 weeks since I was able to go to the market and I am really looking forward to see what new fruits and vegetables are available. I am hoping for just a few heirloom tomato’s as the one’s in my garden still have another week or two before I am ready to start picking. I have yielded close to a dozen yellow squash so far and gave away most of them, but am saving on particular one to grill this weekend with my favorite spices from the herb garden. I have also picked about 6 green peppers and will look forward to peppers and eggs for brunch this morning. The new lettuce is also ready for harvesting and will make a perfect blend for dinner tonight.
As some of my posts can be pretty exciting at times, there are times where they can be very mundane. It is truly these simple posts that reflect those moments in my life that I am most content. Just the simple type of living is the life I really enjoy. I can honestly say that most of the time I live my life constantly thinking about the future or dwelling on the past, but those moments of joy are always found living in now with full focus and full attention drawn on those things that sometimes don’t seem so important. The truth is these are the most important moments of our lives. Those moments when we are fully engulfed in what we are doing and what we are loving. Things like cooking a meal, working in the garden or just taking a quiet walk hold the treasures of our hearts and with this in mind I must learn to remember these moments of joy and try to expand on them. Sometimes the world can be a crazy place and as hard as it is we must learn to step outside the madness and find our happy places. Where is your happy place?
