Another edition of Monday Love

A Quote: Every thought is a seed.  If you plant crab apples, don’t count on harvesting Golden Delicious.  ~Bill Meyer

Something Personal: I wanted to find a good quote about positive attitudes for this week – and trust me, there are many, many quotes about this subject.  This particular quote really stuck in my mind.  I could talk about generalities here, but instead, I will just talk about myself.  I have been a little crabby lately.  I haven’t been able to put my finger on the exact reason for my crabbiness, but I was thinking it was a cumulative effect of wanting to eat healthier, exercise more, lose 10 pounds and generally feel better about ME overall.  When I read this quote (above) it was like – DING-DING-DING — Crystal, if you keep focusing on the negative, how do you expect to ever see the positive???  Geeez!  Most people would say that I’m generally a very positive person (my husband would say that I’m that way to a fault).  But, I have my moments of negativity, foul moods, and yes, crabbiness.  On that note, I think I’ll get to work planting some Golden Delicious……

I went for a run yesterday, had a healthy salad for lunch today — and then, for my healthy snack: Greek yogurt with Kashi & Blueberries.  Hint: if you put it in a pretty bowl, it feels more like a treat!

A cool shopping find: I really love Crate and Barrel.  The new catalog arrived and I have several pages folded down to mark the items I would love to have.  Just thought I would share…..
