I want to change up my 5 things Friday post a little bit and just talk about the things I am grateful for each week. I feel like this will be such a great way to keep me conscious of all the wonderful things around me and all the big and small joys that I have in my life. I know that I sometimes need a reminder to stay mindful and in the NOW, and I guessing many of you do as well! 🙂
I’m Grateful For:
Finally finding a Kabocha Squash.
I have been trying to find this squash for a couple years. I’ve read so many wonderful things about them on blogs for years now and have been dying to try it myself. I spotted one in the Grassroots Natural Market in Jacksonville and I got so excited! So I sliced it up… almost lost a few digits in the process (but it was so worth it) and tossed it in some coconut oil, salt, and pepper. It is by far my favorite squash! It has such a sweet taste very unlike any of the squashes that I have had. I really hope I can snag another one soon!
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
I’m about a third of the way through this book and it is truly giving me some amazing insight into how the mind/body works and how it can be so beneficial for everyone to realize we all have the power to separate ourselves from our thoughts.
Our Better Outdoor Space
Recently Jim and I cleaned up our outdoor space. We wanted simple, clean, and comfortable. A space we could enjoy using all Fall and a lot of the Winter. We gave it a fresh coat of paint, cleaned, and got rid of a lot of unwanted stuff that had found it’s way out there. Since then you can find me out there most days reading, playing with the girls, blogging, or having a meal.
That’s it for this week guys! Have a lovely weekend!
Today I’m linking up with Heather.
