Hi..I'm back to class this morning before I start on the day's work...
I get newsletter's from ..simpletruth.com and today's book feature was called The Choice.
It really spoke to me..here's some quick notes (I'm crazy that way I love to take notes..on books and websites and magazines no wonder my house is a disaster area..oh yeah I have notes on how to clean and organize too hahah)
-to start a business
-to make a difference
-not to give up
"Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely" Karen Kaiser Clark
The first September goal is Vitamins 101
I have a really hard time remembering to take them!! At least bottles last a long time haha. But I know one step toward getting healthy is to include vitamins..so I take a multi for over 50. Vit C,Vit D, Vit E, Calcium, Omega 3 and mini ASA...What do you take?I have one of those pill sorter and leave it on the cupboard..also I take with lots of water so that boosts my water intake...so far I've done really well in the remembering department for Sept so far...I read an article about "crisscross" how one healthy area will help another..like the water/vitamin thing. I love that and find that in all areas of my life..like a circle :)
More goals are to learn about nutrition and eat healthy!! I love the Spark monthly calendars to down load and September is 30 ways to eat more fruits and veggies..fits right into my topic, also the crisscross is fall is time to harvest my garden etc so lots of healthy fruits and veggies going on there. I've harvested my apple tree and sliced and froze bags and bags of apples :) I made a big batch of tomato sauce and froze it in bags too, made fridge pickles and today I'm making easy salsa. My favorite recipe is from a school cook book and either the student or the typer wrote...scold the tomatoes instead of scald them..gives me a chuckle everytime I make it!! I'm off to get some onions for the recipe (Thanks Barb..my Spark friend/onion lady!!)
My September mini theme is also Apples..note the apple them throughout..I think I'll add an apple a day to my healthy eating and to keep the doctor away..haha. Yesterday we were up to Weyburn and I stocked up on some eating apples..red delicious..and some apple juice and unsweetened apple sauce from the Dollar store..what a deal (always the bargain hunter..could add a class..Shopping 101 haha) Can't wait for the new crop of B.C. mac to hit the stores!! I have one of those gadgets that cuts and cores an apple if I don't feel like just eating it out of my hand. Where I grew up on a farm about 20 miles east of here we had a giant apple orchard so fall always included the big apple harvest and Aunts would come over and have pie making bees...such happy memories :)
Well as you can tell..I'm just typing to postpone making the salsa...it's really easy since I bought a food processor but the scalding the tomatoes is always messy!!!
Thanks for stopping by..keep on Sparkin' ...Keep on learning
