Recently I started a nutrition class and so far it has been very interesting tracking food, learning what to eat, what not to eat and so on. So what goes hand in hand with a healthy diet….you got it….exercise. I have been diligent the last TWO days and am attempting to try meditation. My mind goes a thousand miles an hour so this may prove challenging to say the least. So far there have been a few surprises. This morning before daylight as I was walking out of my ‘calm down it’s going to be an awesome day’ space I saw something move. Grabbed my phone, turned on the flashlight and there it was….a rattlesnake. Stepped right over it. I am assuming he was charmed by the sound of Tibetan music and the smell of my new sandalwood candle. I don’t mind snakes but not directly in my path…took care of that quickly. Again this afternoon I ventured out to my ‘space’ to straighten up and got another surprise….a black fuzzy jumping spider scooting around the edge of a shelf. How in the world am I supposed to come in here, close my eyes and try to clear my mind with things like this. Relocated the little bastard outside and set off a fogger to make sure NOTHING else interferes with my rituals.
As for cooking, I have not been doing much of that because raw food seems to be what’s on my plate lately. Perhaps when winter comes I will get start experimenting with some new things.
Always look forward to reading everyone else’s posts though. 🙂
