Rosemary is one plant in the garden we can always count on. It is there every single season. Rosemary symbolizes “remembrance” and the aroma is known to help with concentration. These days I need all the help I can get with my memory and focus. Thus, the weekly, daily and sometimes, yes, hourly list.
Sunday is usually my day to look back at what I did not accomplish and tack on to the upcoming week. I keep large index cards to create my list for the week and the grocery list.
The grocery list is critical. It is awful to look in the fridge and have “nothing to eat” or even be able to creatively visualize putting something simple together out of just a few ingredients!
The second page has become the daily sub-list. Yes, I use my smart phone for my main calendar, but it helps to have a hand written in-my-face list to see and physically cross off.
A few ideas for this busy week of family, friends and food.
**sub makings—shredded ham, turkey and roast beef, hoagie rolls, and hot/sweet peppers
** soups–making split pea soup again this week. package at Publix with the best little seasoning in it!
**exercise–get a walk/run in with a friend. much cheaper than a shrink. if you can’t get out of the house, Google “yoga video 30 minutes”. You will love it. I have my yoga mat next to my bed. Clears my head.
**flowers– they really do make you feel better. snip a few sprigs of rosemary for the aroma.
And remember this today as we head into the week…
