Recently I visited with my doctor.  Just an annual visit to touch base.  She looked at me and said I looked relaxed, happy and glowing. The #1 way to improve my health is thru lifestyle change.  We both agreed it won't happen overnight, it could take up to a year!

So with my little changes in habit that are becoming more routine, self care, relaxation and stress reduction, I have a few indulgences. We also laughed about choice and consequences, and philosophically discussed fluidity in our daily and seasonally life cycles.   We are both the same age, nearing a decade change, so life is starting to have some different meanings. 

So, one thing i have on my indulgence list.  Mini marshmallows for my coffee.  I know, right?  It's not going to kill me, these are the only sugary bits I add.  It makes me smile and think of innocence. 

Recently I ran out of my supply, so as I already had my dehydrator going, I put in some regular sized marshmallows  (since I always keep a bag on hand for campfires), but cut them in half.  I am giggling as I recall waiting to see if they were just as good.  They were!

Not going to post a recipe, this is one thing that is still needing tweaking as i used different temp settings and I haven't a clue how much total time went into making my little treat.

Self care

Everyone needs time for themselves.  This is me, doing that this morning on my new yard couch under a sun shade with a book and blanket.
