Odds and Ends
I miss Bodhi, and I feel like I'm having a hard time this winter. Since throwing my back out on Saturday, I have not been able to move much. So, the one thing that keeps me sane, yoga, is out. I have been trying to meditate, but I'm in a lot of pain. I'm going to try to take it easy over the weekend and hope for the best.
It seems like every week I am hit with some overwhelming sadness that Bodhi isn't here anymore. I feel like I'm doing well most of the time, but when it hits me, it's so hard to think of anything else. Couple that with pain, and it's been a pretty terrible week. I have not really been cooking, so I've been eating a lot of soup and sandwiches.
I finally got to try the Chao vegan cheese. Holy crap guys, it's great. I'm in some desperate need of huge salads, though. We did not have any food in the house when we came home from Thanksgiving, and we only recently made it to the grocery store. I need lots of veggies to get me through.
I had a really nice lunch at Sky Modern Japanese the other day. The fusion tofu was spicy and delicious, and it helped perk me up.
I don't know exactly will pull me out, but I'm definitely in a funk. I really hope that I can get some mobility and get back to my mat soon, but in the mean time, I need to focus on eating healthy and seeking happiness at home.
The internet seems to be a huge buzz with holiday gift guides and things like that. Next week, I want to bring you guys my favorite items, in hopes that they may be inspiration for a gift for someone in your life. I do think you can have an amazing holiday without purchasing things, but I really love giving things to my loved ones. My sister and I are making some gifts this year, so that's exciting.
Holiday Guides I enjoyed:
(Never)Homemaker Guy Gift Guide
(Never)Homemaker Girl Gift Guide
Vegan Cuts Gift Ideas
..... and in other news...
I'm still trying to pick out new glasses. I've narrowed my 3 home try on boxes to these two. Which ones do you like... left or right?
I will pull myself out of this funk. In the mean time, I'll surely drink a lot of carrot juice and try to meditate on all the reasons I am fortunate. This is one of my favorite times of year, and I want to be able to enjoy it. We will never, ever forget how wonderful Bodhi was in our lives, and during this holiday season, I want to do something to remember her. If you have any suggestions on memorial projects, please leave me a comment.
Have a great weekend!
