It was going to turn hot again so Wednesday night hubby and I spent a couple of hours in the garden working. We pulled up the cauliflower plants and cleaned out the bed. We harvested all the cabbages, cleaned up that bed, and put them in the dor... Read more
Rural Life
Thursday, August 06, 2009      7 comments

I live in a very rural area. When my son and husband aren't home I am often the only person around for a half mile or more. A few days a week I drive the 2 1/2 miles to our tiny post office to get our mail. My girlfriend works there and we... Read more

Today was nonstop activity. I had no time to rest and burned tons of calories. I sweated like a pig. I had very little time to eat either which is good for me. When I'm busy thoughts of food disappear. The more calories I burn the less I... Read more

Remember the day I wasted trying to get my husband to buy some news shoes and dump the old dress shoes and the disgusting worn out Reeboks? My co-leader, who is into pictures, requested that I post a picture of the shoes. I want to remind y... Read more
The Path Less Taken

I really enjoy reading other people's blogs. It reinforces to me how much more exciting their lives are than mine. LOL. While they are traveling to interesting locales I'm usually working in the garden. Mind you I'm not complaining. It's a trade... Read more
Mondays Suck
Monday, August 03, 2009      8 comments

I had a killer day. I hate Mondays. They seem to always include tons of work and very little rest. I got a lot done today but I still have a lot left over to do tomorrow. The 6 pet cages are clean. It takes several hours to do them. The... Read more
Cherry Pittin Day
Sunday, August 02, 2009      7 comments

We got the other 72 pounds of cherries done today. It took hours as we pitted these. We also ate a lot of them while we did it. So I have the one dorm fridge empty again and we can pick the cabbages now. The freezers are filling up fast. We are ... Read more

I'm still fine tuning the diet. Weeding out triggers and problems. I cut back a little at noon on the protein and still had no symptoms and I had none after supper either for the second day in a row - no hunger, no cravings, no fatigue, no... Read more
Cherries On The Brain
Thursday, July 30, 2009      12 comments

My maiden name is April Green (LOL) and it suits me because I love the "greening" of spring and summer. To me spring and summer revolve around vegetation. I always knew that when I had my own home I would grow fruits, veggies, herbs, and flowers... Read more

I have been looking for information online about my chinchillas and it reinforces the fact that online information is iffy at best. I try to only use the best sites but even they contradict each other. Sigh. I have so many fresh veggies th... Read more

Our National Guard boys returned home today from Afghanistan. It was wonderful. I think everyone in town shed a few tears. I got my errands done today and made some more decisions about my diet. I'm so slow fine tuning this. LOL. But I wil... Read more

I didn't get a lot done today like I wanted to. I won't make excuses for it. I wasted too much valuable time. I got my exercise in but could have made better food choices. I need to fine tune my eating habits. I am finally trying to get in... Read more
