Good morning all. Two days in a row without rain -- Yipardee! (Doesn't take much to get me excited at this age!).

Where is everyone? Hope that our missing brethren are doing well.

Jane Love the pics and totally understand about the exhaustion when the little ones come for a visit. Love having them come. Love having them go home. And I agree -- our headspace has to be in it. But maintaining definitely counts as having your headspace in it for me because I can pass by the bakery counter in the grocery store and just the aroma will add on a pound or two! (It might have been helped a little bit by the samples they always have out.)

SilentArctic -- Who says the month has to start with the 1st? After giving my rah-rah post yesterday, I had a complete melt down last night. Potato chips (entire bag), onion dip (entire container), double stuff oreos (managed not to eat them all!), and topped off with ice cream. So, I'm recommitting today and will just pretend that April 1st was not really the start of the month. Heck, if I could get a week of solid days, I'd be thrilled. Commit to what seems like a realistic goal and Ubee and I will come up with a cheer for you.

Terra Walking like you do is a goal. Right now I'm still too heavy to enjoy walking because it hurts so much. But I'm beginning to notice a change in the stair climbing. I've told you before -- you're one of my inspirations.

Ubee Bright colors and actually getting to color in a day -- you're ahead of me! So glad you're doing this. I'm recommitting today after last night's disaster. I'm just going to pretend that this is a Leap Year February in terms of number of days in a row. Today is the day for the lunch -- hopefully it will be good!

Does anyone use vinegar water for washing their veggies and fruits? I have always bought the produce wash to get the residues off of stuff from the store, but read about just adding 1/8 to 1/2 cup of white vinegar to a bowl of water and tossing in your fruits and veggies. Not only does it get the dirt and residual pesticides off, it also evidently is supposed to help with making it last longer. Just wondered if anyone else has had experience with using that technique. Off to get myself beautiful or at least presentable. Have a great day!
