National Popcorn Day

It's National Popcorn Day and I almost missed it. I will probably not be eating popcorn today because I'm working and don't have it with me, but that's okay. Maybe I can pop on over to the nearby little store and grab a bag at my next break. Or wait until I'm headed home and pick up my favorite pre-popped popcorn on the way (Erin's reduced salt popcorn).

There are all kinds of fun and interesting and regular-ol-straight-up facts around the internet about this popular snack. So I won't clutter up the space here when you can find it on your own, or not!

One of my favorites is that popcorn on its own is a healthy snack (unless your are sensitive or allergic to corn, of course). Which makes me happy, because my preferred popcorn style is pretty plain. Here is the healthy fact from IBT:

Popcorn is packed with healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamin E, vitamin B and protein. It also contains about 1 gram of fiber per cup, which has more iron than an egg.
Happy Popcorn Day!

Just For Today

Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.

This is part of my current practice.

Along with writing. And new walking shoes (okay, so they're running shoes, but I'm not running) and regular exercises for my knee from the PT. New shoes which were actually fitted with my feet and my intent - what a difference the right shoes make!

And two upcoming writing workshops (debating on a third one, but it may be a setup to try the other one which starts later this month).

"My" writing group (it's no more mine than anyone else's, but I seem to be the center pin of the soon-to-be three person group). Another group I get to write with once or twice a month, which someone else organizes and hosts.

And - just for today... I like that. I can do that.
