Tangy, fresh cucumber and yogurt dip
This morning I woke up feeling refreshed. I let myself sleep in a bit, just until the sun was starting to beam through the slits in the blinds. I woke up smiling. Chris and I made a nice wholesome breakfast of veggie omelets and blueberry-nectarine smoothies. Then he brewed up our morning coffees- for him, a straight shot of espresso followed by an iced coffee and for me, my typical hot americano. It's been a nice morning. No pressure. Just enjoying the day. Soon I'll get started on some work- calculating the environmental impacts of fertilizer production. It isn't the most thrilling bit of research I've been tasked with, but it's one of those things I can get fairly easily caught up in and it will serve the goals of this project well. So I'll power through that- perhaps breaking for some lunch-time yoga- and I'll take Chaco out later this evening when it's cooled down a bit. I feel good about today, the whole of it, already. I think if I had kept on feeling guilty over my blah-kind-of day yesterday, I wouldn't feel this way this morning. It never ceases to amaze me what a difference perspective can make.
