When I read the prompt was cold I sort of “froze” up in my thoughts! Being here from California I thought, well, I can’t go make a snow angel or even a snowman, cause I think those two things would make a good cold picture. It’s not even raining here. Although might be expecting a little rain by tomorrow. I even made a general announcement this morning. The word today is COLD! I thought about it throughout the day. Then it hit me. How about ice cream. It would be a treat and it would be cold. It was so good. So very good. I was alone too. Littlest and only girl was dropped off to practice Christmas carols and Soccer player, was, well….playing soccer and the oldest goes really without saying, was GONE. This meant I just got to go enjoy a scope of ice-cream all by myself. I sat in the grass outside 31 flavors and enjoyed a seasonal scope of chocolate peppermint. YUM.
This morning is day 5 in living with one intention. Sister Sarah texted me a picture of her breakfast yesterday, since I have been sharing, she also wanted to share with me what she was eating. Her breakfast looked so good. She had a slice of toast with mashed up avocado only she mixed a spoon full of sour cream and minced up some onion, told me it was Nana’s recipe. However it looked so good that I bought a ripe avocado and mashed it up on the most yummy bread from Trader Joe’s, their Tuscan bread. I only used avocado, salt and pepper and it really hit the spot. Mom, this probably won’t look very appetizing either, considering it’s green and mushy.
And as my morning went on and I enjoyed a cup of coffee that motorcycle man made me. I got to thinking. I’m slightly spoiled. He gets up before anyone and he makes a fire, he turns on the heater and makes the coffee. That makes it easier for me to actually get out of bed. I’m grateful for that. We sort of switched spots. At the beginning of our marriage this person was me and especially when we had babies and I was breast-feeding early in the morning. However now, it’s him. I think it’s a great trade-off.
Wishing you all a happy weekend. Not sure if I will be posting over the weekend. That’s usually not easy for me however I will for sure be still practicing my intention and also taking my photo prompt a day.
