Something to Think About

Thank you Gin! I read this, and the teacher in me thought, "this really should be included in the university curriculum!" You get such a variety of students. If you just got a care tag for each one to start with, every teacher would be a step ahead!!!

Healthy Eating....

Every time I think about healthy ANYTHING, I think about my friend Sheree'. This goes way beyond eating...but that is an entirely different post (a very long one😃)!!

Anyhow, there are people at my house who are trying to eat healthier for various reasons and those who are not. I will not say which side I am on, but I am feeding both. 
I made my first trip into Akins, the health food mart.
Interesting. Weird. Neat. Gross. Wow!
Lots of items in this place I didn't:
1) know was something people actually bought,
2) know was available,
3) want to know existed.

My interest in this store was out of necessity. However, I stayed over an hour because of pure interest, shock and discovery.
*Sheree' would be proud!
 Who knew....there are about 200 different health bars available?
Who knew there are so many healthy drinks to choose from?
I'm just going to stay away from the gross stuff ( it deserves a post all of its own).
This is the health bar section--not candy.
Juice anyone?
Water anyone?

Ok, so all of this to choose from. One person in this family got juice and the other drive down the street to Andy's. We will not divulge names here, but those of you who know us, will get it a chuckle!

Summer Project #3

Limoncello again! Takes a couple months to make, but it's worth it!!
It calls for cheap ingredients. Alone, they might be terrible but wow! What they can be when mixed together! Yum!

I MAY Have Met My Match!!

I hid the game, put off playing with every excuse in the book ...and then I gave in. The Monopoly Marathon has begun. Parker and I are playing the adult version of the game per his multiple, multiple, multiple request.
I didn't mind the junior version so much. Quick 30 minute game, no big deal. The adult version is so long (days) and my attention span is short!
I should also note, that I am the reigning champion at my house in this game. Talking big and winning big! Until now. I may be knocked off my "Monopoly Winner Every Time --winner winner chicken dinner bragging right" pedestal!
