Blood Moon, Brussels Sprouts, and antiBiotics

Thursday, February 01, 2018

I got up early yesterday to see the eclipse of the moon. It was called a Super Moon Blood Moon. The moon is closer to earth and brighter than usual, it's the second full moon of the month, and there is an eclipse. This hasn't happened since 1982 and the last time it was visible to the U.S. was 1866. It won't happen again until 2037.

I find that interesting.

I made a new recipe. The photo doesn't do it justice. It is spaghetti squash, lentils, and roasted brussels sprouts with a balsamic vinaigrette. It was good. I love a SparkPeople lentil soup recipe I've made a couple times but I think if I made this again, I'd leave out the lentils. (I'll save my lentils for the soup). The squash, roasted brussels sprouts, and balsamic vinaigrette were good.

I am sick. It had been nearly 3 years since I've had to go on an antibiotic for these horrible sinus infections I get. (I've been hospitalized before.) I tried to fight it but am glad after the 3rd day on the antibiotic that I caved. I feel so much better! If I didn't work fulltime, bring work home to do,and have events evenings and weekends that are work related I would've fought this with rest. But I don't have the luxury of peaceful weekends. Last week I had a class two nights and stayed late at work a third night. (No wonder I got worn down.) So, I thank the Lord for antibiotics!

Once I feel better I am going to get back to exercise and track everything I eat, staying in my range. It's time to get serious.
