After an absence of several weeks I made a quick trip to the farmers mkt this morning. It took me all of about 15 minutes because I only visited one stall. I usually have another vendor for potatos, but didn't need any today.
I brought it home and began washing the rainbow chard and kale, and tearing them into smaller pieces to put in ziplock bags for easy access. I can't tell you how gorgeous the kale and chard is, but it is so pretty and so fresh that I wonder why I ever get that stuff in the grocery store, even in the organic section which isn't bad for a grocery chain. In addition I bought some broccoli, zucchini, and celery, and that did it for today.
I had eaten a big breakfast of strawberries, blueberries, white grapes, chopped walnuts, and sliced banana, topped, of course, with a splash of whipped cream! I didn't bother to try to figure out the calorie content, and as I would be perfectly happy with a dinner of veggies this evening, add just a few calories, and you can see why I don't gain weight. For lunch I did make French toast, which I have always liked with salt and pepper. I ate the first slice with those seasonings, and then got out the maple syrup for the second slice. Even so, the calories in my lunch don't add up to much.
I might gain weight if I started eating out a lot at fast food restaurants, or if I cooked with packaged dinners such as Betty Crocker, but that's not how I like to eat and I just can't help it. And looking further into the contents of Ensure, I've decided I'm going to return it to the Costco warehouse when it's delivered to me (so I will have to carry it after all!)
I figured out that the supermoon is going to fall on my birthday evening, and I looked up the full moon for November 1940. I think it was also a supermoon, but it was a full moon nonetheless and it fell just a few hours after I was born! With that coincidence I might have something very good (or very bad) in store for me during this supermoon, or probably not.
I like to know what is happening in the skies and I believe in astrology up to a point - I'm certainly not a fanatic on it and never change my behavior to coincide with it. I think I was most affected by what was in the skies when I lived in Ireland. It was uncanny, to tell the truth - maybe the starshine didn't have to go through so much pollution to get to me. In fact, that is the only time I remember actually seeing the Milky Way! I was also affected by the gale-force winds which were common. I would be an absolute ball of energy when the wind was strong. Sure doesn't make me energetic these days!
I want to thank everyone who commented on the three small paintings I've hung in my kitchen - I have three more to go but need some gale-force winds to get me moving to hang them! I feel like an absolute blob of putty right now and can't get up the motivation to do a thing. This shouldn't last much longer and maybe I'll get back to a more normal state.
