Winter coping mechanism #5

Next time you're at the grocery store, buy some kind of fruit that takes a relatively long time to eat, like a pomegranate or a pink grapefruit or pomelo. Gather your people around the table and make a big mess eating them. Definitely double peel those citrus monsters. Happy points: aromatherapy, color therapy, extra C, people time. I've done this twice with voracious little grapefruit eaters who had me peeling madly to keep up. This coping mechanism inspired by Sarah, Zivar and Heidi, who all do this anyway, no matter the season. Oh, and Maya, in utero, who had me craving pink grapefruit like crazy.

Dear Bahiyyih, here is another little winter coping mechanism: Put a tiny dab of your favorite sunscreen on your wrist or the back of your hand, and it will instantly take you back to summer. Aromatherapy!

Love, Sherri
