FYI Friday

1.  I'd like to dive, face first, into a big pan of these.  I'm not even a diver, but man these are serious.

2.  I'm loving these tastefully simple table decorations.  She suggests them for a wedding, but I could see them on any table - birthday, dinner party, or just your family dinner table.  Such a simple idea that adds just a little touch of color and whim to an otherwise plain table.

3.  I love pizza as much as the next guy, but this is just not right.  Can you imagine the heartburn and indigestion he surely felt afterwards.  I'm not sure I could eat pizza again for years.  Or ever.

4.  I read the greatest, life-changing tip from Dr. Laura Markham this week.  When you're in a bad mood or feel your mood going south, stop and redirect your mind to thoughts of gratitude.  If you have to stop and write them down to focus your brain on them, do it!  Here's a little except from her daily post:

Every spiritual tradition has a practice of gratitude.  Not just for some presumed spiritual or ethical benefit, but because it works. The heartfelt expression of gratitude lifts us out of the minds usual restless feeling of not enough into the joy of sufficiency.  We open ourselves to take in the blessings that surround us.

5.  I'm tackling homemade Valentines this weekend for Colin's class.  Say a little prayer that things go as planned and we don't bite each other's head off.
