Just thought I would share some thoughts. No theme, just random thoughts…….
1-My major love language is quality time. It is sometimes a hard one to fill when you have 2 kids and your husband works and most of your other friends have jobs or live far away. I use blogs as my means to meet this need– on some level. Even though I can not go and sit down to a cup of coffee with you, I can read your blog and sorta chat. By doing that while my kids are napping at my own leisure, I get a glimpse into you through daily encounters or huge epiphanies. I now know about your day. That makes me happy.
2-I eat a spinach salad typically several times a week. I like them, and I struggle with low iron, so eating one is a good way to help boost that deficiency. I’ll put cheese and carrots on it and every now and then boil an egg. Generally there is a leftover chicken breast from a previous night’s dinner to put on it. Sometimes there will be a tiny amount of dressing but I’ll admit my husband is wearing off on me and I tend not to use dressing anymore. The flavors are greater this way and it is even healthier. I tend to run through my spinach regularly. Somehow I managed not to use it all as quickly and it was “big salad night” at the V family home. Thomas had his romaine salad and I had my spinach one. I was geared up for a lovely dinner. I took a bite and things seemed not so right. I took another, to double check. I took a third because I am an idiot. I almost hurled. It was bad folks. I threw the whole thing out and ended up skipping dinner that night because I was so disgusted. Now, I can not look at my spinach the same way. It has been several weeks with no desire for spinach salads; hope I grow out of it soon.
3-I am so excited about wearing my summer dresses. They were all missed last year, for I was either still pregnant, just finished being pregnant, or needing frequent access to my milk makers, thus meaning I never really wore any. Even though I am still nursing, the feedings are much less frequent and I can wear all my sun dresses, which is my attire of choice on a hot day.
4-I think I am the only person who goes into TJ Maxx and comes out with a bag full of groceries. As odd as it sounds, they have a nice supply of healthier non-perishable food at a super price (over 50% off what I might pay elsewhere). Sea salt, agave nectar, real honey, 100% maple syrup, olive oil, and things of the like. The items are of reputable brands too. Being that TJ Maxx is about 40 minutes closer than our closest, nicest health food store, it serves me well.
5-While on the way to the library the other day, Daniel kept saying, “Where’s the ghost house??” I had no clue what he was referring to at the time. Finally, he shouted, “There it is! It is haunted!” (which is from a Berenstain Bears book we had recently checked out). Upon seeing it, I can agree that his observation was correct. I decided to take a picture of the house. Add in a little sepia and blurred edges and you can almost see the ghostsAre you scared??? :O)
