This is the face of a statue my sister gave me. I think it is supposed to represent a female Buddha. Either way I think it is very cool. Here are few Buddhist sayings that I found:

*Fill your mind with compassion

*What we think, we become

*Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful

*Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.

This is a photo from December. I was so excited when I got it. It is my first snowflake macro.

* Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake… – Francis Bacon, Sr.

Have you ever mixed up salt and sugar either accidentally or on purpose?  When you are close up like this it might not be as easy to mix them up.  The sea salt is a lot larger than the raw sugar.  The sugar has a more defined shape than the salt crystals.  The sugar also has a bit of brown tint to it, while the salt is primarily white.

Do any of you superstitious types throw salt over your shoulder to keep the devil at bay? I was reading that if you spill salt, which used to be a precious commodity, that you would have to throw a pinch over your left shoulder with your right hand.  I have never done this, I would like to, but then I would have to clean up all the salt after. Decisions decisions.

There are days that I crave sweet and other days that I crave salty. Either way I try to follow the rule, everything in moderation.

Happy Tuesday!!
