Molly over at Our Three Pennies begins a new series about eating healthfully. I'm looking forward to learning how her family switched to a whole grain diet. We got rid of daily sugar three years ago when my husband became diabetic, and in the last year, have used whole wheat flour almost exclusively. I'm not to the point of milling my own flour, juicing, or sprouting grains, mostly because of the cost. I'm worried I won't stick to it long enough to justify the investment in tools/supplies.
This morning I finally reached one small goal: to be awake and conversant with my husband before he walks out the door at 5:45 am. He is working so hard in his new job, putting in long days and not complaining. I want to boost his confidence as he starts his day. I want to show him how much I respect his hard work by giving him a happy send-off. Today was a great start!
A week's worth of laundry is piled up behind me, and the refrigerator is almost bare. Last night I paid bills and picked up yet another wedding gift. Why didn't I have the foresight to buy multiples of the one beautiful pitcher I found last week? Luckily, a sharp-eyed saleswoman at Dillards helped me find a Wusthof knife set that included items on the bridal registry--only this set was on the 75% off clearance table, with an additional 30% off. I think I will miss the peace of our deserted little mall when Walmart moves next door. With almost no traffic, Dillards has much to choose from in the clearance racks. It's the one department store I visit regularly. I mostly visit and rarely buy.
