It’s Monday again. How does your week look? Are you optimistic or want to crawl back under the blankets?
My mind feels good but my body is having a disconnect. More about that later. This week is exciting and nerve-wracking all rolled up in just a few short days. My oldest daughter receives her second varsity letter tomorrow night for swimming, very proud. But on the flip side she is having her wisdom teeth extracted on Friday so that leaves me nervous. Oh and add that shiny new driver’s permit to the mix and I’m concluding that I will be out of my comfort zone for a bit. She’s learning and will be a great driver but she’s our first child to teach to drive. I’m learning the men in my life (husband and father) have great patience with her. Me, I need to meditate more as my type A personality is emerging more and evidently making her nervous. Yeah, you’re driving is making ME nervous too. So we’re equal. Ha ha.
Today is a rest day so I’ve been working in the kitchen today. I made a big pot of this soup and some vegan/gf coconut blondies I’ll be sharing this week. This soup is perfect for these bone-chilling days. Freezes great. Packed with protein and vitamins. Turmeric for recovery. Packed with flavor!
