It has hatched!

Remember this guy?

DSC05320 It has taken almost a month before anything happened, aka the root. But look at what I spotted today!

Every day I have been impatiently checking on the status of my little seed and there has been no progress. I almost threw it out a few weeks ago but then I read it could take up to 6 weeks before a root forms. I have been babying it, changing its water, talking to it, giving it sun… it looks like all of my work paid off!

It is rather ugly now, though. (sorry seed!) I still love you!

The bottom cracked open and out came the root!

Note: for all of those that have been thinking of growing an avocado plant, it takes time! But once it starts to grow it is pretty darn amazing!

I was having “one of those days” today. I haven’t been out of the house in a few days and I was feeling very anxious, annoyed and going a bit nuts. J has been extremely clingy and whiny, lately.
J, I love you, I will always love you, but sometimes you drive me nuts!
Love, your devoted Mother

Marc arrived home at about 3:30 and I happily put my running clothes on and took off for some much needed exercise. After a great 5.5 mile run, I came home refreshed, relaxed and in a much better mood!

Running, rather exercising in general, is such a release for me. It clears my mind, makes me feel calm and grounds me.

What is your de-stressor?

After I iced my knees, changed, and read some books with Jordan, it was about 6:45. I was pretty hungry, so I grabbed my cooked brown rice and made a very tasty rice dish.

 1 1/2 cups of cooked brown rice 
1/2 cup beans, I used garbanzo beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
top with avocado

Mix all of the ingredients, minus the avocado, together in a bowl. Heat until it’s nice and hot. Top with cool, creamy avocado chunks. Your mouth will thank me later!
