Monday Bunday: Funny Pose

I wish I knew why Cadbury likes to pose this way.  It doesn't look very comfortable.

Cadbury had a lovely Thanksgiving, although he probably would've liked more treats.  On work days I let him out when I come home for lunch and he gets a treat such as a grape or banana chip as a reward for going back in his cage without a fuss.  No sweet treats over the holiday for this little bunny!

I got plenty of treats, though.  I made a pumpkin cheesecake the weekend before Thanksgiving, and then we bought a regular pie for Thursday, since the cheesecake didn't last long.  (Ahem.)  I ran sixteen miles on Saturday, though, and three on Sunday after a 45-minute spin.  I can have the occasional treat.  Also, my boot camp starts this week.  I don't know what possessed me to sign up to be tortured three days a week at 5:30 am, but if I ever get such a crazy notion again, I hope someone slaps some sense into me before I get out my credit card.  *sigh*

Have a great week, everyone!

Product Endorsement: Mario Badescu

Friends, you know I'm not one to use my blog for shilling products, but today I'm too impressed to do otherwise.  The product in question is Control Cream by Mario Badescu.

I've been dealing with Rosacea off and on since turning 40, and this is the first stuff I've found that eliminates the red, scaly patches.  I rubbed some of this on my face Friday night, and here it is Sunday and I don't need Visene or green concealer anymore.  Mario Badescu's Control Cream gave me my face back and I couldn't be more grateful.

If you know anyone suffering from Rosacea, please recommend this to them.  If it doesn't work, I'll gladly buy their unused portion.  I have that much faith in the product.

Yesterday we gave thanks for abundance: abundance of food, abundance of opportunities, and most of all, abundance of friends.

Happy Thanksgiving, to those who celebrated, and good wishes for the holiday season!

Monday Bunday: Dharma Edition

I got back last night after a fun, fulfilling and thought-provoking weekend at the Shambhala Mountain Center in Colorado. My purpose there was to attend a weekend writing/meditation workshop, which will hopefully get me writing again or if not, help me remain serene about it.

Although there wasn't a lot of free time in our very intense program, I was able to hike up to the Great Stupa a few times, which is a sort of Buddhist temple.

Near the Stupa on my last morning, I met this little guy:

He was obviously on his way to meditate and get serene, just like me.

I wish all of you a serene week as well!
