I ate some really crappy food for the last two days - Taco Bell, a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant and some gelato to be exact.
Interestingly enough, my esophagus was filled with phlegm after I ate it.
Why did I do it?
I don't know.
Sometimes I like to just switch my brain off and eat what I think I want to eat, not what I should eat.
I always pay for it though.
And today - I'm paying.
This post shall reflect that.
Random thoughts, in a random order, with random photos - and nothing will make sense.
You were warned.
Let's see...where should I begin?
I did something last week that I said that I'd never do - I bought me some fingernails.
My hands were looking so bad, so work worn, I just didn't feel much like a lady - so I bought these.
I'm embarrassed to tell you how much I'm loving them.
I hope they can hold up to the garden.
I just had this weird day last week where I felt completely sad. Aaron had been here for three days, then he up and left - went back to Chicago - and last Wednesday the house just felt so quiet. I'm sure some or most of my mood was hormonal, but I just thought 'screw it all'. I couldn't pull one more weed. I felt lonely and sad - and even though I had at least a half a dozen friends that I could have popped over and visited to soothe my loneliness, I just didn't want to. I guess I just wanted to feel the loneliness.
I hopped in the Bug and went to town. Treated myself to a Wendy's Summer Berry salad and some fingernails. Visited the library. Came home and laid low the rest of the day.It passed.
Pulled about six gallons of honey off of the hives - with nary a sting.
Glenco has been busy bottling it up, and now the sign is back on the road and I need to remember to keep m'self dressed.
The honey is beautiful.

Went to Gurnee, IL this weekend for a Leanness Lifestyle picnic, seeing my Coach, David Greenwalt and many of the members of the club that I had the privilege of co-coaching. AMAZING people. Glen finally met the Coach - do I have one photo to share? Nope. Not yet. I hope some of my friends will email me a few....
My thoughts on Pinterest lately.
Too much pressure - especially for the engaged, pregnant or new moms.
All of these 'gender reveal' photos - engagement photos, new baby photos.
Entirely too much pressure to be clever, creative and unique.
I was the fourth child.
I think I have two baby photos.
Yesterday I went to the Lowell Garden Walk.
I really didn't take many pictures - just a couple of things I wanted to remember.
A cool variegated plant with yellow flowers - I'm a sucker for anything variegated...or purple and spiky.
A rose bush that I simply must have one day.
Please note how lovely my nails look in the photo.
There were a few things that impressed me - I was hard to impress yesterday.
Believe it or not - big bark chunks impressed me. I've never liked the big bark chunks, but totally loved it in this application.
I was really impressed with Wayne Gruber's garden - the owner of Gardens on the Prairie. He makes me swoon anyhow - there's just something about a man gardening. It works for me. : -)
And then.....there was this tree.
