V.A.C. #3- Nobody like a Dirty Belly Button

Happy Wednesday Travellers,

Behind today’s little virtual advent door would be a tiny little drawing of you in a bath wearing gloves…A bit odd I realize, but allow me to explain…

One of things I think is really important when you find yourself in a stressful period of life is self care. Simple acts of self care help lift our spirits versus neglecting your body when you already are down in the holiday dumps will only make matters worse. And showing yourself some love I think tends to help with whatever unpleasant feelings have arrived at your door this holiday season.

There’s dog walking, lawn mowing, laundry, salad prepping and whatever else needs to get done to get my week off the ground so to speak…

See I just snuck the salad thing in there, that’s why I’m here today, to make the case for VEGG. As in veggies, vegetables, and greens. As in the thing that Americans and well, I can’t speak the rest of you because I don’t live in your country, but I tend to think many countries live in veggie deprivation whether by choice or by access. Veggies are a big deal. They are THE big deal that most people are missing…
