We've developed this routine and it makes me feel great. I have come to realize that it's not the pancakes or the making the pancakes with Nooriya or even the routine; I crave the good feeling, the high, I've been lucky enough to associate with the feeling with the kids and Saturdays.
I want to more consciously associate this feeling with the things that are really important to me, Zahra and the kids. I don't want to waste that feeling on things like work or other "distractions".
At work I have a twice yearly process I have to write down my goals and priorities for the year and assess them. I usually think of this as HR BS and office drudgery.
My goals should be simple and I will do well to read this at least twice a year.
This is Nooriya's pancake recipe. I love it!!!
