… this fabulous little piece of wonderful told me I slept 7.5 hours last night (74% quality – is that good? – doesn’t sound good, but I feel great)… also went to the gym with me for a late morning workout (not sure yet what it thought of my workout – trying to figure out all it can do – it’s smarter than me for sure)… also tells me I have nothingI have to do today (yay! other than prepare a dinner of standing rib roast, potatoes dauphinoise and roasted parmesean asparagus)… #iloveit…  ;-)

… two of the smartest, most beautiful and funny  people I know… (smartest: Andrew – he went to Harvard and has lots of White House stories, plus he’s a writer… most beautiful: Makemie… funny: both of them)!  Here’s to a fun 2019!

… be sure to get some Gaia Elderberry Syrup to have on-hand during cold & flu season…

Share this on Twitter

… I don’t ever get flu shots (never will) but I do lots of other things to stay healthy, including every day take vitamins, greens (Athletic Greens), and occasionally a teaspoon of elderberry syrup when I’m around sick people… available at Healthy Harvest and Food Matters…

… I’ve seen rings, but never one like this…

Share this on Twitter

… this Salavation Army bell ringer in front of D.D. Bullwinkel’s is apparently famous in some parts… he used to play for Alabama 1988-1992 and has the ring to prove it and tells me he was a “lefty” before it was cool to be a lefty…

#brokenhearted

Share this on Twitter

… feeling numb and overwhelmed learning horrible news this morning. This was the last photo my beautiful strong Tennessee friend shared online (“Set your sights higher than your eyes can see.” ~Rumi) before heartbreak hit.  Today she gathers her eldest son’s things from the coroner’s office after he was shot and killed in a random act of violence and is making arrangements to have him cremated so she can “carry him close” on the trip back home.  There. are. no. words.  He had just arrived in Detroit with his cousin, pulling in to a parking garage of an art institute. They were both shot.  The cousin is fighting for his life.  And my heart aches. Why do people hate?  I wish I were in Tennessee right now. She was one of our biggest supporters of doing a Brevard wall mural honoring “all of the brokenhearted.” Some day we will do it, and there will be a special tribute to Ryan included somewhere in the design. xo  Please tell the people you love that you love them today. Choose love.
