Mindful? Thinking about what we do around here to be responsible to the world and to ourselves.
Chicken? Cheep, Cheep, Cheap!

1. You know the saying. One’s greatest strengths are generally also one’s greatest weaknesses. One of the things my strong imagination does for me is that when I’m in the car by myself, I am easily inspired by the thought of snacks. (I call this my Inner Beagle.) Peanut M&M’s, Rice Krispie bars, French fries dipped in a chocolate shake.

ONE – I baked. I realized our sweet potatoes were losing their youth. I looked on the internet to see if there is such a thing as Sweet Potato Bread and of course there is. It was delicious, and there is one piece left in, I can hear it humming.

Thanks, Kathryn, for this great pix. It was a good day and good walk...

ONE – Weather is getting stranger and stronger; have you noticed? Yeah you have.

We ruminated what weather-related catastrophes are possible in our house and neighborhood. We live in a hundred year-old house in a crowded neighborhood; we are on municipal water and sewer lines of a town that had some flooding in 2008. If run-off chokes the system, it would be possible for water or sewerage to back up into our basement. Oh yuck.

Cheap: Sometimes I’m as cheap, cheep, cheep as a chicken.

Mindful: I like to think about how to live the best life most simply, enjoying life on earth without assuming it’s all here for me. You know; like using ALL the water and never sharing and buying whatever is cheapest without regard to how it got to me and where it’s going when I’m done with it.

Which would be a good mascot for me and many of you, too. Mindful chickens.

This is what I did this morning.
