This 'n' That
Sunday, March 24, 2013
This is one of those weeks where I have a blog halfway done and don't feel like finishing it yet. I just feel chatty this morning so I'll save the other blog for next week.
I slept in this morning, what a treat! I think I finally have the time-change under control.
Spring is coming, slow though it may be. I saw some robins on Tuesday, the worst day of the week; snow and bitter winds yet there they were in the tree. I checked to see if they were wearing long-underwear (they weren't.)
I had a particularly salty weekend last weekend when I had company. I made good food choices but on those occasions when we ate out, I knew that I was going to be taking in more sodium than I was used to. Adding the fact that I didn't drink as much water as I usually do (and NONE on Monday!) resulted in an unfortunate result. I had gained 10 pounds after the weekend!! Experience told me not to panic and to get back to water and less sodium and the extra weight was gone by the end of the week.
Has anyone tried this? My niece shared this information with me:
Keep the end of the romaine lettuce instead of throwing it away and put it in a dish with 1/2 inch of water. Change the water every day and the lettuce will regrow.
She tried it and she reports that it is definitely working. It was growing within just a few days!
Have a great Sunday! Last week I started every day expecting a miracle; this week I started (and ended) each day with this thought:
"What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"
