Eye of the Tiger
Imagine that 1980s (or is it 1970s?) gem of a song Eye of the Tiger. This was my affirmation out in the world yesterday morning. It was Take Two of a field trip. This time to Tuscon. So much of life is Attitude. I changed my tune for this trip. Instead of being overcome by everything, I held focus. I had: The Eye of the Tiger!
We left home at 9:15 am en route to the natural food store Wild Oats. Calvin marveled how I drove "like Daddy" and this could only mean fast. I had complete control of each turn through the getting-hottter desert. Could it have been Harry's Carrot Milk? (He brought 3-16 oz jars by just prior to departure. He's the modern milk man!)
Arrival time 10:15 am. We were in and out...in one hour! There were grumbles as I bypassed all the goodies. Though I think some success in celebration over 3 berry smoothies and 2 bags of raisins (different sizes). I grinned over the bunches of glorious fresh greens I was missing from the day before: 3 Romaine lettuce, 3 butter leaf lettuce, 3 red leaf lettuce, 3 green leaf lettuce, 3 rainbow chard, 3 kale, one red chard, and one I can't remember. The fridge is, well, green. We were home by 12:30 pm after pit stops on the return.
I learned this morning a lot about lions and tigers through our ZooBooks issue on Big Cats. Apparently I have a roar too. (Perhaps it's my Leo lion sign?) I've had quite a voice from the belly over the past 2 days. I've lots of quality and quantity time with 3 lively children. And I can shout out when it gets to a bar-room brawl vibration.
What does this have to do with blending? I don't know, but as blending is a focus on conscious living, so is attention to my day-to-day mundane makings. I even had a chance to redeem myself over "spilled milk." In a covered container, I transported Liam and Willow's 9th birthday almond milk to the park...no spills!
