Yesterday was one of those days when every little feeling that came floating across my heart was entirely too much. Which is why I ultimately ignored those pesky emotions for a bit and jumped head first into making these crazy confetti compost cookies. Because, really? How can I be expected to ignore a recipe for cookies that includes heath bars, rainbow sprinkles, pretzels and salt and vinegar chips? And you know, I made salt & vinegar kale chips on Sunday. We ate them all that very afternoon. And a lesson which keeps swirling around me lately is that life is all about the fine (albeit difficult) art of balance.
Plus, it was Wednesday. I was listening to Holly Williams and Brandi Carlile. Jack (our dachshund) was wearing tiger striped shorts in a well played effort to distract Sookie from some grumpy feelings of her own. As I dumped peanut butter cups into the giant pink heart shaped bowl of brown sugar and eggs and stirred in all together into a mess of yummy, I gave myself a pep talk.
The cookies? So incredible beyond belief you simply have to experience them for yourself. The feelings? Oh those I made peace with; because you should never feel wrong for embracing being present, alive, and aware.
