I heard there was a tornado in TN around the same time ! So, I hope you guys are safe too. The one good thing about the storm is that the humidity dropped big time. the nights have been delightfully cool.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I think I should add trampoline park to the list. The name of the park here is called "Sky Zone." It's about a two hour drive, but it's near some friends' homes so I might make a day of it at some point.

And good luck with your novel. That is a great goal. I like to think that if I can overcome my weight issues, then that will lead me to overcome other obstacles in my life. I think that we can all make the connection to other goals.

Well... I think I've improved on my sleep this week, but not enough to make a difference. Either that, or I need me some iron again already. Time to bust out the chicken livers!

Love your harvest pic. It's so rewarding, isn't it?! I'm eating a GOOD cucumber as I type. I had to throw out about a dozen bitter ones but maybe they will be better now.

Have a great weekend.

Nah, no neglect here. I haven't been on Spark much lately anyway thanks to my class. I take a few minutes when I can to check in. I am going to have to get ahold of some kohlrabi to try. They have it at the farmers markets in San Diego.
