I was on my way to TJ’s the other day and came across a wonderful coat drive exhibit. With my camera on me at all times I decided to snap a few pics for you guys.:)
This powerful exhibit could not be missed and reminded me of a coat I haven’t worn in a few years. I dropped off this coat at the dedicated donation bin the very next day. This was such an easy thing for me to do, yet I’m sure will have a tremendous impact on someone’s life. It’s getting cold here in Boston!! Have you gone through your closet recently and donated clothing you don’t wear? I do this several times a year, and still find pieces from college and even high school that I can’t seem to let go of. Every time I make a little step in the right direction, and I hope that someone out there is able to benefit from it! 😀
With the holidays around us, it seems that everywhere you look, someone wants a donation for a charity. Although the causes are noble, it can get frustrating. We should be giving back all year long and not just during the November-December stretch. This is why I love when companies step up and make donating a whole lot easier, like by shopping!!
Boston readers – 15% of every purchase from Mint Julep in Harvard Square on December 10, 2009 between 5-9pm will be donated to The Boys and Girls Club in Somerville and Cambridge! You may be able to find a unique gift there, or even a little present for yourself 😉 I’m pressed for cash these days, but I may buy something small for a good cause. 😀
All right, all right – let’s get to food!!
2 pumpkin spice waffles (one with choc chips, one with walnuts) with crunchy Barney Butter and 1/2 banana + coffee
PART I – turkey, laughing cow cheese + cranberry/cherry sauce on TJ’s ww Tuscan bread
PART II (a few hours later) – Oikos with remainder of cranberry/cherry sauce
A larger version of Saturday’s salad + pan fried tofu
+ a tiny treat:
These chocolate calendars are at TJ’s for 99 cents!! I couldn’t give up such an amazing deal 😉
I am now enjoying some ginger yogi tea…
Today’s yogi message: “I am beautiful, I am bountiful, I am blissful.” I’m leaving this post at that. Namaste. [PS – right before dinner, I practiced yoga for 45 minutes.]
