This is the week to practice Mindful Eating. I have mindfully eaten and enjoyed rotisserie chicken with salad, rotisseried on our own rotisserie with our insanely fancy grill. It involved me Googling Bobby Flay and calling, “They say to cook it on high!” while the flames leapt merrily upwards. I’ve mindfully eaten Greek salad with steak, peppers, olives, balsamic vinegar, herbs, and olive oil.

I have mindfully eaten cake, too.

I’ve lost a couple of pounds. I’ve crossed a bunch of stuff off my list. I’m feeling somewhat calmer.

I enjoyed grilling with #1 daughter and the Good Ol’ Boy this weekend. I’m getting nearer to being able to keep the Sabbath. Studying it in Sunday School, in fact.
