Today was a bit blustery, but with temperatures in the mid-40’s. We also have nearly 200% more daylight now than at Christmastime. We are over 15 hours a day of daylight now with about 5 ½ minutes increase each day. The state’s low temperature today was -28 degrees and the high was at 50, still a 78 degree temperature range.
Have you seen the new program “Honey, we’re killing our kids”? It’s on TLC. I’ve seen a couple episodes and it does get parents’ attention. They are shown computerized photos of how their kids will look when they are 40 if they continue eating as that have up till now. Then a doctor gives them rules to follow for three weeks to realign themselves with a “proper” diet and exercise. Although the doctor stresses a low fat diet as THE solution for all the weight gains, it is still interesting to watch the kids and the parents go through the process. At the end, parents and kids are willing to continue with the new lifestyle. Update computer-generated photos show how the kids will look at 40 IF they maintain this new dietary and exercise program. Maybe it will get the attention of many parents. Unfortunately, sugar-free cereals don’t help everybody to lose weight.
A couple weeks ago I had a blood test to determine air-borne allergies that are bothering me. The results showed four, bright red squares in the cat category. Apparently, that is an extreme allergy to cats. It may be the allergy that is causing my blood pressure to stay so high, my eyes to be a bit dry, my sinuses to be so stuffy, and for all the sneezes. Thankfully I still drink my noni every day and it does help combat some of the symptoms. Also, maintaining my O diet is essential. I’m also using EFT and hoping that I’ll be able to reverse the allergy or at least mitigate it enough to cope. Katie cat has been a resident here for 10 years. So, now we have a real problem. I don’t want to have to get rid of her and I know the rest of the family doesn’t either. Well, it is almost warm enough to open some windows and let the fresh air in. Maybe that will help.
With the price of gasoline going skyward, I’ve decreased my driving and just do the essentials. I rarely drive more than 25 miles a day and do that in one trip. So, I missed the snow geese this year, although I haven’t heard that anybody saw any either. They started changing their route a few years ago and the numbers have been declining.
Today I did most of the shopping for the month. I stocked up on lots of frozen foods and good fruit juices. Also, I picked up some organic pears, gala apples and fresh bananas. I did get a large bag of fresh spinach and organic carrots, too.
Well, it’s late and I’m tired (or at least my eyes think so). Till next time…
