This blog can go all over the place. Yesterday I took Kid1&2 to see Wicked, which, as you probably know, is a possible back story to the women who are the witches in The Wizard of Oz. The protagonist, believe it or not, is Elphaba, the green woman known by many of us who grew up watching the movie as the Wicked Witch of the West. Who knew Glinda was such a space cadet?
I could wax poetic about feeling green myself, after watching that show.
I realized this morning that I really like the color green. For Christmas I got a lime green French oven from John, who will no longer be referred to as The Hubs as it probably makes him feel like a wheel cover or something. We made a pinky promise, so he’s always going to be known as The Husband. LOL. But I also got a gorgeously green citrus reamer, a sparkling green foil cutter, and green-foil-wrapped peppermint Hershey Kisses as gifts.
And it’s avocado season! And I luv, luv, LUV key lime pie, and Godiva key lime truffles linger in my mouth the longest!
Read between the lines. Being green means prosperity, health, wealth, responsibility, comfort, joy, and being available and open to the endless possibilities before us.
And so in the spirit of loving all things green, I’m making a commitment to cook more greens, using my new green kitchen devices, hanging clothes on the line when the sun shines, and saving more green in the bank. Being green, living green, and saving lots of green is my theme for 2013.
