What was Beautiful:
I’ve been getting up early and really appreciating the birdsong in the morning, as well as the Cascade and Olympic mountains crisply outlined in the wintry sunshine.
What I’ve been up to:
Spreading 3 truckloads of dirt around the yard in an attempt to make it level (and ready for summer).
….and a lot of stretching as a result of both of those.
What made me Laugh:
Dogs jumping around the dirt pile in the backyard and underneath my flamenco skirts.
What I’m reading:
“What if instead, we learned to be happy with ourselves? What would happen?… Think of how this might simplify your life. Think of how many self-improvement books you read, or listen to in the car. Think of how many products you buy to make yourself better. Think of how many things you read online, in the hopes of being better. Think of how many things you do because you feel inadequate. Think of how much time this would free up, how much mental energy.”
