Hi everyone – it is almost Friday and so this post is a reminder that the Friday Food theme this month is meat – info is HERE – but any food photos will fit right in – because this is a celebration of deliciousness after all.
Here are some mixed photos I have for this week.
Likeitiz’s “Brussel sprout” replacement snippet:
While I was looking for the link to that older post, I came across one of likeitiz’s reflection posts about “collections” and she mentioned this:
“I had said in my welcome to 2015 post that I would live the next 365 days with two important realizations. Well, here’s a third one that I started soon after I wrote that post. Simplify. Cull. De-clutter. De-bulk. At first, it seemed like such a daunting task. But when I broke it down to one cabinet or drawer at a time, it became doable.”
Now I am not sure where you are at right now in your life, but for some reason, November is usually a time when I find myself thinking about the current year ending and then I ponder my aims for the new year approaching.
I think about projects I might want to hustle to get done before the year ends and I plan out what can be carried over into the new year. I usually cannot think of these things in December because life is so much busier – and then before I know it, January rolls in and bam, the new year has started. So I have come to appreciate my November reflection time. I have learned to embrace the planning mode that happens so naturally for me at this time. I have learned to make the most of it before busy December and January roll on in.
How about you?
Maybe this week you can spend some time thinking about what needs to be completed before the year ends or what you have in mind for the coming year? If so, maybe you want to choose a “word” for the year, like I have done the last six or seven years (and all of my words have started with the letter F – I will maybe share them later…. but I usually have a word that starts the year and then I look back and give a word that sums up the year – sometimes the words are congruent).
Well Chris recently wrote about her “word of the year pondering” here – and next is a snippet of it for you:
Okay – if you are not into thinking about the upcoming year yet, let’s just enjoy this day for what it has!
Have a great Friday and if you have any FRIDAY FOOD photos to share, please link up because we want to drool with you.
