Take 5 for Friday


  • Blue Apron: We started Blue Apron this week as an experiment. I enjoy cooking but needed a little infusion of culinary inspiration after a summer of casual meals.  I’ll blog about my thoughts on Blue Apron after my 4 week trial is complete.
  • Pisces Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse: I am neither an astronomer nor an astrologist so I recommend visiting Mind Body Green for a more detailed description of this phenomenon.  My explanation is “wow, look at that sweet moon.” This is the time to let go of things that do not serve your life.  Coincidentally if you were in my class last week this was the theme.
  • Zen Shorts: I just bought this book for my kids. It tells the story of Stillwater, a large cuddly Panda, who teaches 3 children to look at the life from different perspectives.  If you have kids or teach kid yoga add this to your library.
  • The Wiggles: I’m taking the 3 kiddos to the Wiggles show so our littlest guy can experience Australia’s greatest export.
  • My post-Wiggles cocktail.  I mean, c’mon, I love those Aussies but a delightful refreshing St. Germain cocktail will and must be consumed after the show.  photo courtesy of Chase the Flavors.
