    Today's Challenge:
    Fit in a walk by parking as far away as you can or getting off the bus or train one stop early.

    I didn't get out today. Except out onto the driveway to spray myself with the garden nozzle on 'mist' & refill the dogs water bucket!!! Actually did both of these things several times today!!! The temperature has been quite hot to be out & about. And the heat starts quite early. I may get out tomorrow evening when it is cooler. I do have some errands I need to run. I will do this challenge whenever I do get out to run those errands. It is a good challenge for me & I actually do park at the far end of the parking lot at times already anyway.

    Peace, Love & White Light ♥ ;-D ♥
    And Magical Dreams Tonight ♥ ;-D ♥

    Today's Challenge:
    Take 3 minutes to picture yourself reaching 1 of your goals.

    OK. I put some time into this one & visualized a goal in several steps. First getting my storage situation resolved & getting my things all moved except for the barest of necessities. I visualized this having been already done. I guess I also visualized this family home sold because I had a vision of a large piece of property with lots of trees & greenery & several houses & outbuildings. It seems I have visualized my new property ♥ ;-D ♥

    Peace, Love & White Light ♥ ;-D ♥

    Today's Challenge:
    Share your favorite healthy seasonal snack.

    Summer fruit !!!!! Pretty hard to pick a favorite !!!!! Maybe watermelon!!! But whatever looks good (& tastes good as per the samples on toothpicks) comes home with me from the farmer's markets. I've been eating a large fruit salad on a bed of organic baby greens & sprouts (usually fenugreek & clover or alfalfa & broccoli or radish) almost every evening for dinner lately. Who wants to cook in this heat? The pretty much always ingredients (which vary a bit depending on my supplies) are blueberries. strawberries, tomatoes, watermelon. grapes of all kinds & colors & avocado cubed & marinated in lime juice. Blackberries will be in there if I have them as will be some sort of citrus wedges like tangerine or mandarin. Also cantaloupe or honeydew or mango. And white peaches!!! I discovered this almond-date hummus & I thin it down with some plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt (such as cashewgurt) & use that as a dressing, tossing it all very gently. Except for the avocado. No matter how gently I toss it, the avocado gets a bit mashed, so I add it on top last ♥ ;-D ♥

    Peace, Love & White Light ♥ ;-D ♥
    And Magical Dreams Tonight ♥ ;-D ♥

    I notice that I have just now passed the 600,000 points that I was striving to reach. So now the goal is 700,000. Onward & upward!!!

    Today's Challenge:
    Reach for reusable containers, fabric napkins, and real silverware at mealtime today.

    I use real plates, utensils, etc. most all of the time & reusable containers. I like glass best. I do wash & reuse ziplock type bags over & over until they are worn out & then they get rinsed & go in the recycling bin. I do have some plastic utensils that I use on occasion & they get washed & reused over & over. I don't throw them out!!! If they get broken, split, cracked, etc., they get rinsed off & put into the city's recycling bin. They DO NOT go into the city's trash bin & go into the landfill!!! I used to use cloth napkins almost all the time in the past but here in the old family home my mom had a LOT of paper napkins in large packages in her closets. So I am using them up slowly but surely. (Also: I don't have a washing machine set up for use here & besides that we are still in a drought here!!!) I use those paper napkins quite a few times to wipe off knives & wipe up the counters & then let them dry in between uses.They end up on the floor being stepped on to soak up a spill. Then they go in the trash bin. Because they are a natural fiber (paper from trees) & have wiped up natural matter such as fruits, vegetables & water... they should be helpful in breaking down the matter in the landfills. I figure those landfills can use all the help they can get to break down all that inorganic trash!!!

    Today's Challenge:
    Learn about 1 food tradition from your city, town, or region.

    My first thought on this was not a dish but a food crop. California is famous for its avocados!!! And they find their way into so many recipes. Not so famous home made recipes & also cuisine on the menus of many famous Hollywood restaurants. And of course there is the guacamole!!! A favorite of us natives & of visitors a well!!!

    THE HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA AVOCADOS
    https://www.californiaavoca...

    AVOCADO RECIPES: https://www.californiaavoca...

    Avocados were featured in the original Cobb Salad made famous at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood, California. Featuring hard-boiled eggs, chicken, bacon & bleu cheese, it is certainly NOT vegan, but famous nonetheless!!!
    I found a couple versions of Brown Derby's Original Cobb Salad. One with curly endive & one without. Here's the one with the endive. Feel free to leave it in or out.

    Here's a version where vegans could leave off the salmon:

    I went searching & found a few vegan versions:

    The Cheesecake Factory has a vegan Cobb Salad.

    Yes Brenda. This one gave me challenges. Plural!!!
    See below!!!

    Today's Challenge:
    Lie on your back and lift your legs above you to rest them against a wall.

    OK. This challenge is completed. There was a challenge in finding a place to do this challenge!!! I usually do floor challenges on the bed. But my bed doesn't have a wall on any side of it. There is a wall but there is a dresser between the wall & the bed. Not the handiest of arrangements but it is what it is. Space is very limited here!!! So.....I ended up doing this challenge at the front door with the door open & a nice breeze coming in through the security screen. I put my feet up on the metal security screen door. The entryway linoleum was nice & cool on my back. (it is a spot that is favored by pets in this hot old house in summer). I didn't bring a timing device with me so I'm not sure how long I was there. I'm sure it was longer than 2 minutes. It was quite enjoyable so I stayed awhile!!! There was one more challenge to all of this. Getting back up!!!!! I scooted myself back from the doorway on the pillow, rolled myself over & put my knees on the pillow & grabbed the security screen doorknob with both hands & pulled myself on the pillow closer to the doorknob & then put my feet on the floor on either side of the pillow. Still holding onto the doorknob with both hands, I pulled myself up into a standing position. Worked out just fine!!! ♥ ;-D ♥

    Today's Challenge:
    Spend a few moments thinking about an experience or period of time when you were resilient.

    A period of time when I was resilient??? The better part of my life you mean??? Without resiliency I would not be here now!!! That & an attitude of gratitude!!! 3 violently abusive relationships in a row. Repeatedly traumatizing & life-threatening situations on a regular basis. I won't go into details. I am in a better place!!! I have moved on & away from the old & painful memories!!!

    Peace, Love & Light ♥ ;-D ♥
    And Magical Dreams Tonight ♥ ;-D ♥
