And now to start answering your questions...I'll just do a few here and there, so I don't bore you to sleep.
Erin, Gina and Patti asked me what my favorite way to use honey is - and I'd say it's just to eat it straight out of the jar, or make honey cookies or oatmeal honey bread. But since I no longer eat cookies and bread *weeps* I just eat it straight. I actually don't like it in my tea. Go figa!
Nana Diana asked me how long it took before I noticed changes in myself after starting my 'kickbutt' (her words : -) program - Diana - it took me almost 20lbs before I really started seeing a change - and nearly 30 lbs before people started consistently noticing.
Tracy asked me if I grow a veggie garden - I started out growing veggies, and didn't have any flowers. I love veggie gardens, and think that a well maintained vegetable garden is every bit as pretty as a nice perennial bed. Once I started putting in the big flower gardens around here, my veggie patch got smaller and smaller, and this year - due to tendinitis in my arm, I didn't plant one. I poked a few tomato plants in amongst my flowers. Oddly, I didn't miss it too much - just went to Farmer's Markets. I do hope to have one next year though - it's all just so much work!
Happier Than A Pig in Mud asked me about my red door, and what would be the next color I would paint it. Well - the door is still red. I promise a pic soon! The red door - a dirty country red - is growing on me. It seems to make no sense in my head that the only thing on the house that is red is the door - seems that I need 'other things' to tie it in. I'll get some red mums, a flag with some red in it etc. I'm happy to say that I've quit obsessing over it.
OK, that's all for now! I'm riding my bike to the gym to go and work out, and later today have my Cooking Club! The theme for today's club is 'Lunch in the Mediterranean'. After that, I do some volunteer garden work at an old historical house in town.
Have a fabulous day!
