Three Things Thursday

1. I tried chia seeds for the first time today. I kept hearing about how chia seeds are a superfood known for their ability to help your body detox as well as power the Tarahumara runners of Mexico, best known as the tribe portrayed in Born to Run. I mixed one Tablespoon in with my overnight oats and it was really tasty. I hope these chia seeds are busy detoxing my insides.
2. Today, I saw this dog hanging out on my way from the gym to work. I resolved to be as happy as that dog and have as great of a day as that dog was having on the ride. Happiness and contentment are both choices, because we choose our reality.
3. I recently learned my HOA doesn't care if I want to start planting a garden. I've been meaning to do this since we moved in three years ago so we could grow some veggies and herbs. I am obsessed with the idea of building a square foot garden, which requires compost. My parents composted for years and in college, I was convinced that compost bin ate better than I did. Now, I'd like to tackle composting because it would further reduce our garbage output and make me feel less guilty about the odds and ends of food that I throw out. Not sure the HOA's opinion on that topic, but it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
This would be perfect

Where are you thinking about planting the garden? I always meant to plant on in our little yard but never got around to it. Guess now I'll be figuring out container gardening!

My best-friend has a self contained indoor compost in her apartment. It works really well for her, and there is no odor or anything!

We container composted last year with the girl scouts. Wasn't terribly fond of all the worms in my garage but the compost was great.
