Citrus Treat

Most of the time, when a little toddler guest is served oranges, up goes the little nose with a shake of the head.

"No fanks."

With a little bit of tweaking, however, the orange slices get gobbled up.

All I do is mix a tad of sugar with a light sprinkle of cinnamon and spread the mixture on top of the orange slices.

All gone.

Wishing each of you a lovely weekend.

One More Book....

Throughout the years,  more self-help "diet" books have come home than could possibly be counted.

Some were quite helpful, others were trash.

I swore no more would be purchased.  However, the other day, during a quick Goodwill run, I happened to see one written by Dr. Mark Hyman.

He's appeared on tv and actually lives in the same area as we do so I was curious about this book and bought it.

You know what?  It's really good and has some excellent tips on revving up the metabolism and getting, well, healthy.

He does recommend eliminating caffeine which would mean bye bye to morning  coffee. Now that would be hard.

However, many of the other "key" or recommendations are worth a shot.

One can also find him on Pinterest so if you are interested, check him out!

ARE YOU SUCCESSFUL AT KEEPING YOUR WEIGHT DOWN? (p.s. For my own answer to that question, it can be said in one word. NO.)

Missing the Pines

Is it possible to miss trees?

Last year, neighbors who live close by had some gorgeous, towering pines that overshadowed our yard, cut down.

If there had been anything that could have been done to persuade the neighbors not to cut down the pines, I would have tried but they had the final say.

They wanted more sun in their backyard.

So the decision was made and the trees, that had been there for a long, long time, were cut down.

To this day, I miss the old beauties. 

They gave shade in the heat of the summer and looked gorgeous all frosted with snow and ice in the winter.

These days, when driving near pines, I always think of those towering healthy and giant trees that  were so mercilessly chopped to smithereens.

It still makes me sad.

It's like I lost a couple of dear friends.
