It is that time of year again.

Freckle multiplying time!


I swear any time I go outside, I come back in with more. It is like a freckle party on me.  I have a lot of freckles during the winter but each year, I get more freckled and pale.



I tried something new today. I have been reading on various blogs about Siggi’s Yogurt and normally, it is about $2.50 a container and  is out of my yogurt budget. Stop & Shop had it on sale last week and I thought why not. It is Icelandic style yogurt. It is non-fat but very creamy and indulgent. I got the Orange & Ginger flavor. It took a few bites for me to get used to but I liked it.  I had to eat it very slow.  It was just not something I could eat fast.  I will have to try the other flavors if it is on sale again.


The nutrition facts aren’t bad either.  I am really trying hard to cut back on really sweet stuff and artificial sweeteners taste way too sweet sometimes.  I also understood the ingredients. I didn’t know what a vegetable rennet was but I looked it up.









For breakfast, I went back to one of my favorites, Van's waffles. This time with apple butter and raisins on them. I did not get hungry until lunch time.  Lunch was just a ham and cheese rollup with mustard and blueberries on the side.  Dinner was 96% ground beef cooked with peppers and a bit of cheese.



The sun helped my mood. I wasn’t feeling depressed today.  I got outside and got some sun (and freckles) and it felt good. I could have stayed outside all day.  I will on Saturday at Earthfest.  The weather is looking good for Saturday too.

The Bottle cap wisdom of the night from Honest Tea’s Lori’s Lemon tea (see a trend?): Good timber does not grow with ease, the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees. - Douglas Malloch. I like it.  I am a much stronger person because of the wind in my life.  I TOTALLY AM!
