Ok, back to the events of the day. Actually, besides getting groceries, which took us only 30 minutes in the store (one of our fastest times ever!) for a full load of groceries, not much else happened.
Well, one new thing I learned today was that most table salt contains dextrose, which is a sugar! So now I have to buy pure salt or sea salt or something if I want to flavor my food during this whole 30 day thing AND I don't think I can trust anything that has salt already in it. I did buy a few things to try tonight like turkey burgers. I put my knowledge of reading labels to the test tonight in light of what I know from this new diet. This time, Aldi's won't cut it, so I'll have to check out Meijer for special ingredients like the salt and special oils and such. Not a big deal. Meat, fruits, veggies (except peas and lima beans, and no corn), and some nuts (not peanuts). That's it. No prepared sauces or granola bars except for certain Larabars. I'll have to do lots of prep and be very careful. I'll be practicing for the next 11 days and start on July 1st.
Oo, I just heard some home fireworks! Firework season has begun! And I hear a police siren. But, that reminds me, we had the windows open all night and this morning, when Abishai crawled into my bed for snuggle time, we heard some fire trucks and a little bit later, we heard the train whistle, not just once, but a couple of times from different locations. Ah, yes, now I hear fire engine sirens, too. Hm,....which reminds me, touch a truck is coming up soon, too! And lots of other events, so stay tuned, we've got lots of fun things planned!
|I was watching something on Batman last night and working n this puzzle at the same time. It's a fantastic puzzle!|
|At the mechanic, this fiat was parked across from us. I think the characters on Tayo, the Little Bus TV show are based on this car because those lights look like Tayo's eyes and I see a mouth in the grill! Ah!!!!|
|I had no idea Keturah and Justin could pick up tires and move them. Justin has the idea of using them as weight for the slip and slide.|
|Aldi's, I love you! No sugar or sodium added!|
|Benaiah digging a hole to put the dog's stake in so he can come home - TOMORROW!|
|It was not a particular fast slip and slide, but they made it work. She's much bigger than she was in the next picture.|
|They did add some dish soap to help it slide more.|
|Abishai didn't go down the slip and slide but he did touch the water and got sprayed a little.|
|A ladybug! And Keturah immediately wanted to pick it up! Sweet!|
|Jared gardened for the first time in his life tonight! This is a plant that will help repel mosquitoes and black flies. Yeah!|
