Opposite Ends of my Kitchen
I am participating in an online workshop right now, a little something that felt so right to me when I was deciding how to allocate money received at Christmastime. Whole Foods Kitchen is just the sort of intentional use of my free time that centers me, especially at a time of year when my work schedule and its associated tax deadlines threaten to spin my brain into a knot.
It is times like this when I wonder why on earth I am focusing my energies on the Registered Tax Return Preparer Competency Test (yawn) when what has lately been occupying my thoughts and dreams is pursuing certification in holistic nutrition.
And while I immerse myself in research on distance learning programs for holistic health certifications, along with lively online workshop discussions of healthy foods, my children are busy picking out just the right sticks with which to roast marshmallows in our fireplace.
Do you see the sticky, white, gelatinous substance at the top of that stick on the far right?
Marshmallows (insert interrobang here). Oh, the irony.
