Did you know that laughter can lower blood pressure, decrease harmful stress hormones, strengthen your immune system, and increase creativity and motivation? It also just feels good :) So, with that in mind, I thought I would share with you a few laughter moments of my week.
Do you remember that 25 year old ice cream maker that I rescued from my parents' attic to make dairy free ice cream? Well, I got so enthusiastic about making the 1 quart batches, that I made about 4 in a single week, attempting to try out different flavors...when the motor finally croaked.
Having the ingenious idea to use my guitar string winder and cutter to hand-stir the ice cream, I stood there for 45 minutes trying to get the stuff to freeze. Finally giving up, I put the mixture in the freezer, and tried another batch after getting a new machine. Lesson learned.
But my sister and I laughed about that.
poppyseed dressing. (I always tell my sister, "I love real food...it's so colorful!")
