Mundane Blog

Friday, April 18, 2014

Do I have a pound of trash? Or have I discovered something new? Perhaps I should call it fire-roasted great northern beans? I was going to do a cross between an overnight soak and a quick soak by bringing them to boil, but I forgot them. Now I have a pound of lightly scorched beans. Hmmm.

After receiving the Popular Blog Award yesterday for my March 11th blog (thanks At Goal & Maintaining Plus .... Team), this concern seems mundane at best. For some strange reason I was really, really wanting that award for that blog. Smiling that I got it. AAAAhaaaah, I'll throw out those beans. Probably won't be the biggest mistake I make this week, but one mistake I won't make is letting up on my healthy living efforts.

    I have to ask - how bad do the lightly scorched beans smell? Lol

    So glad that you got the award for your deserve it. I love your blogs.

Thank you too for always supporting my blogs and commenting.

I hear you loud and clear about the food our grandchildren are eating. I try so hard not to let it bother me but I am watching my granddaughter who is so addicted to food and all she talks about and wants is food. This morning she was pouting as there were no more cinnamon raisin bagels...which to me is pure junk food. I have to keep my mouth shut but here is a little girl who is getting fat...bottom line. She just turned 6 and is in size 8-10 clothes. Breaks my heart.

Have a terrific Easter Marsha

    Do you have a compost pile? Otherwise, just toss them and be grateful beans aren't a big budget-killing item!

Congrats on the blog award and I'm glad your wish came true!

    I hate messing up too, usually an indication that I have too much on my plate.... time to slow it down and regroup.

congrats on the popular blog!

    So glad you're not holding yourself to a standard of utter perfection: that would make all the rest of us so flawed in comparison.

(And: you richly deserved that Popular Blog Award: you are such an inspiration to all of us!!)

    Once in awhile you have to make a human error, otherwise we would WORRY about you!

Congrats on the popular blog post award! I think you should be in a magazine, but I don't know how to nominate you for that one :)
