A friend E who I haven’t seen in a while stopped by yesterday for lunch and a walk down to the grand opening of the new organic grocery store. We run into each other from time to time and are reminded to make plans. Helping The Girl get through feelings of having no friends has inspired me to nurture the ones I’ve got. (see last post) It was a great day for a lunch time stroll–there was not a cloud in the sky. Working inside all day–it’s special to get out and enjoy the sun for an hour especially on a winter day that feels like spring. After we caught up, E asked what I was doing to feed my soul. Buddhist activities aside, I’m not doing much these days. Blogging of course counts. But most days are filled with work and then our evening family routine begins. DH and I get maybe an hour together before I retire exhausted to bed. So I’ve decided to find more ways to feed my soul. Today was another gorgeous day. So during my lunch break I planted the nasturtium seeds that have been sitting on the counter wondering their fate. I have so many fond memories of my kids much younger picking the flowers and eating them while we lived in New York. The Boy would pop one into his mouth and make a face, “spicy” he would say and then pick another. Friends also feed the soul. E and I made plans to go for a walk in a month and another good friend K is coming over for a lunch time chant tomorrow. Now if only I could get my butt back to Hot Yoga I’d be filling up my soul for sure! What about you–how do you feed your soul?
