On distractions. William R. Bradford once said, "We give our lives to that which we give our time." It made me stop and think. Do I spend my time on meaningful things like friends and family and pursuing my goals and dreams? Or am I wasting too much of it on things that don't really matter? (Like watching hour after hour of the Rio Olympics on TV.) It's good for me to stop and take stock once in awhile, to de-clutter my days and reprioritize my time. Because I am easily distracted. And time is precious. So is life. And I don't want to waste mine.
On zucchini. I know there are a lot of people who don't like zucchini squash, but I happen to love it. And this summer we've finally grown enough of it that I can make all my favorite zucchini recipes: zucchini bread (of course), zucchini chocolate chip muffins, lemon zucchini cookies, chocolate zucchini snack cake, zucchini quiche, zucchini pancakes, and zucchini relish. I even love to eat it plain or stir-fried with my dinner. So here's to an awesome zucchini summer!
