I picked up a few beets as well. I mean, purplish-red, root vegetable. It’s straight up perfect! now the problem here is that I have never had a beet. As much as I’m into trying new foods, there is something about the beet that turns me way the fuck off. I just cannot bring myself to put it in my mouth, Yet here I am, buying a bunch of them to balance this root of mine. Well, well, I’ll just have to get creative and hope for the best! SCENTS COLORS & MOREI started a watercolor picture today. It’s got 2 badgers in it and a tree. I put (or attempted to put, one little apple hanging from the tree cuz, ya know, red.

To meditate. To think deeply, to focus one’s mind for a period of time, either in silence or through chanting. I’ve been following along with the Yoga with Allie chakra challenge and at the end of each video she includes a chanting meditation (and seriously for the first couple days I beat myself up because I was avoiding meditating and I felt like a slacking failure until I realized… durrrrrr! I AM meditating!! This brain sometimes, I swear.) Anywhoozles, I’ve realized a few things from this first week of meditating: We start by chanting aloud, then slowly get softer until we’re silent and chanting in our minds. And as soon as we stop chanting aloud my brain starts running a mile a minute with any and every thought that decides to glance it’s way. I try to reign them in but I don’t even realize it’s happened at first, so they get to run rampant for a while probably. Cripes …
