Some random things.

I participated in Robin’s free Pilates program last March and it was really wonderful.  You know I like to break things into doable chunks, yes?  Well, she does exactly that…with Pilates.  10ish minutes each day.  You can absolutely do it.  Plus, it’s free!  Click here to read more about it.

Whether talking politics/art/religion/whatever we’ve got to keep our minds open.  Here’s a good read.

Listen to your heart.  It’s not easy when there’s so much noise out there.  This is something I have to work on consistently.

I’m enjoying Christine’s podcast so much.  If you’re a writer, I encourage you to check it out.  The Conscious Booksmith Podcast.

Also, to continue the goodness of our conversation with Christine last week, Christine created a special discount code for you!  Yes, indeed.  You can save 25% off her new memoir, Moving Water, by using the following code at checkout:  MW25OFF (code expires February 28)

You know I love pom-poms, right?  My sister knows this too.  She sent me this link.  Such a fun project.  And, while mine didn’t turn out quite as nice as the one in the post (and I was working with yarn I had on hand), I do love seeing it every time I walk by the front door.

Compassion and some intentional reframing.  Here’s a fascinating read on behavioral economics as it relates to low-income individuals…and (all of our) limited mental bandwidth.

I just found this ombre heart and I really want to make it.

Oh!  And, in case you haven’t heard, registration for Just Five Things is open.  I know some of you have already registered (yay and thank you!); there are still some spots remaining.  Dates for class are April 3-14.

Enjoy the clicks and

Some random things.

Our Christmas decorations have come down (well, except the tree…insert emoji with big, wide eyes).  But, even once the tree comes down, we always keep a few strings of twinkle lights up year round.  Because twinkle lights.  So of course I liked this.

We’re writing thank you notes this week.  You might remember how I feel about that.  Love this reminder.

I treated myself to this beauty.  Because Mary Oliver.

Do you feel the weight of an invisible workload?  I know I do.  Read this.  And because there are two sides to every coin, read this too.

These are (three) good questions.

If you’re able to listen to a podcast now and then, this is such a good one…with Sharon Salzburg and Robert Thurman.  I listened to it a couple weeks ago and it’s still on my mind.

I already knew of Jason Silva because my kids watch Brain Games.  After watching this video, I think I have an official crush on him.  It’s really beautiful.

And because my daughter and I love pompoms (you too?), I wanted to share a new (to us) kind of pompom maker.  We have others, but my daughter is really enjoying the kits she got for Christmas.  This one and this one for mini.

 

Enjoy the clicks…and
