Back On The Hiking Trail

US

Such beautiful weather today–still February, but Spring has sprung!


We went hiking and I am so grateful to G-d after the surgeries of the last couple of years that I can once again start to enjoy Sugarloaf Mountain together with “my sugar.”


Thank you so much Hashem!


On the hike, one brief thing we talked about was how to email (and speak) nicely to other people.


My wife told me something really smart she heard from a colleague at work:


“WHEN you are having strong feelings and want to communicate them to someone…


Sit down at the table.


Pull your chair in.


Write down what you want to say.


THEN…


Imagine the other person is sitting right across from you.


Turn the paper towards them.


Pretend that they are reading from it in front of you.


NOW…


Decide whether you still want to send it that way.”


So much stupid stuff we say and email could be avoided if we just did this little mental exercise in our heads and in our hearts. 😉

Best Animated Shoes

Dragon Shoe Husband Wife Shoe
These are some very cool shoes–different!



My daughter found these on Youtube 



They are made by this unboring shoe company in the U.K. called Irregular Choice.



Walking on the back of a dragon cannot be a bad thing. 



Stepping alternatively on the bride and groom–maybe an interesting perspective on the ins and outs of marriage. 



They also have a neat pair of Panda shoes. 



Check these out, I think you’ll look cool and really like it. 😉
