Guess what? My computer is connected to the internet again tonight! I hate wireless connections!
Today was warm (in the 30’s) and sunny. For the most part the roads were clear where the sunlight was able to melt the ice. Those shady areas had patches of black ice and that can make driving a bit challenging. The moose are in abundance having come down out of the mountains because of snow depth. The eagles and ravens have been soaring and gliding high in the sky, sometimes playing and sometimes searching for food. The daylight has increased to about 10 ½ hours a day. Within a month or two it will begin to turn into spring.
I’ve been spending hours upon hours going through my bead catalogs trying to determine exactly which beads and findings I need for the next few projects. Fortunately, I did well at bingo tonight so now I'll be able to order a few of those beads! I’m so pleased with a necklace I finished this weekend. The focus bead is wire sculpted sterling silver encasing an absolutely gorgeous, large, wine-colored stone from Russia. I’d sure like to find a good source for them (they are called eudealite). I have another Russian stone to work this week. It’s clinaclore or seraphinite. It is so much fun transforming a beautiful, polished stone into a wearable piece of art.
I used to have that same enthusiasm towards dinnertime. Somewhere along the line I got tired. The twins and my husband have never been much into specially prepared foods and I think that played a part in my dwindling enthusiasm after the girls were grown and out on their own. My guys like simple foods that taste good and fill the stomach. I try to make the meals as BTD compliant, wholesome and affordable as possible.
Tonight’s dinner was chicken quarters, rice with kamut/rice milk gravy, and green beans. There wasn’t a bite left over, so I guess it was okay. However, I didn’t buy the free-range chickens for $6.79 per pound. I got tonight’s chickens on sale for $.79 pound. The guys eat a LOT of food at a meal. I do buy quality whenever I am able, but $6.79 a pound and not even organically raised!
One health benefit I’ve noticed since changing our diets to compliment our blood types is the twins don’t have those painful mouth sores nearly so often. They used to have five or six at a time and rarely were free of them. Now, they are free of them most of the time with only one or sometimes two when they reoccur. Anyway you look at it, that is a blessing!
