Roadworks and pickles!
Friday, January 24, 2020
This monster appeared outside my window this morning - an underground vaccuum excavator?! Boy it was big! And noisy! They are digging a trench in the road outside, and this big machine was hoovering up the dust and rubble. What with that and the pneumatic drills and the digger - it was Very Noisy!
So, this morning, instead of my friend coming to my house, I went to hers!
On my way home at lunch-time I picked up two different pickled things - not quite 'fermented foods' but half-way there. I like the dill pickles, and the red cabbage is marinated in apple juice and vinegar and is actually a nice, gently pickled flavour. This is part of my quest to try to include more fermented/pickled foods in my diet. I had some of each with my lunch - which was delicious: two portabello mushrooms, with a veggie burger, onions, lettuce and vegan cheese in between. It was scrumptious!
I didn't get my 10,00 steps today, or go for a bike ride - it was too cold for me! But Garmin still awarded me a Chinese New Year badge for a 20 min 'walk' today (to my friend's house).
So pretty - I love these virtual badges.
Simple Abundance's lesson today is to count our blessings. She shares a teaching from Stella Terrill Mann, a Unity minister (1940s):
Greet the morning with "Blessed be the morn for me and mine."
At noon, declare "Blessed be the day for me and mine."
In the evening, invoke "Blessed be the night for me and mine."
