Some days it’s all about kicking back and enjoying things at a slower pace. Looking at the clouds, letting the birds sing and just taking in some sunshine.
I have a problem doing that. I always feel like there’s something else to cook, work that needs to be done, photos to be processed, a house that needs to be cleaned or a dishes that need to be done (very very guilty of the dishes one). It’s hard to make myself sit still and unwind but I’m quickly realizing it needs to be a mandatory part of the day. The other day I found a grey hair. The next day I found its friend… and on the third day I found out that they scrump like bunnies and make babies. Not cool.
I’m not sure what my 12 step program to de-stressing is going to be or how I’m going to get there – so while I ponder that, tale a look at the clouds today and tell me what you see up there. And don’t forget to help yourself to one of these pops – my freezers getting a little crowded.
- 1/4 – 1/2 of a fresh honey dew
- 1/3 cup sugar
- juice of one lime
Dice the honey dew and combine all ingredients in a blender. Pulse until all large chunks are gone. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours before enjoying.
Simple, I know. What can I say, sometimes it happens…
