    Oh how wonderful! I've done Italy a couple of times with student groups. It's a crazy schedule, but so much fun! And I so much enjoy that age group, just at the hinge between childhood and adulthood.

    Wishing you all the best success in getting into better shape for the trip. The bracelet sounds like a great idea. Too bad it doesn't have an Eiffel Tower charm on it.

    So tell me about macadamia butter. What do you find it's good for that almond butter isn't?

    Thanks - Yeah, the "neeeding to lose x by y" NEVER works for me. Hopefully this will.

But Barcelona, ah Barcelona....I fell in love with Gaudě!
    You might be crazy - I don't know if I've ever heard of anyone who didn't love Paris.
    I can't imagine being SO close to so many wonderful places...

    I'm looking forward to both places! I've got to do some research

    It's my favourite age group too. I'll get an Eiffel Tower when I'm there!

    I like Macadamia butter partially because I've NEVER had any luck with almond butter. I've bought it a few times and each times it's been HARD. Unscoopable hard. I've tried different brands and stores. So I gave up on it.

    I also LOVE the taste

    Tuesday

    A slice of quiche and a Chai
    Set construction and design from 9-12:45. I'm really enjoying the set design and construction. It's "filling the well" (Julia Cameron)
    I bought a 200g wheel of Brie and ate 1/2 of it for "lunch" in the car
    1-2:30 Home Instruction Student
    High school, hardware store, hairdressers (to book an apt) and home

    I took Daughter into London, we ate at Wendy's (I had the Apple Pecan Chicken salad - without the pecans) and then we went to watch Breaking Dawn part 2. I had NO popcorn OR candies!!!!! I brought a small bag of almonds and Brazil nuts and a tiny container of Cacao Nibs, but I ate maybe 4 nuts and 5-6 Nibs. For me, this is BIG!

    However, on the way home my Beetle pulled into $tarbucks...

    I think next time I will ask for a Chai "tea" the Lattes are starting to be TOO sweet (That's a good thing - right?)

    Just ask for a straight latte with no syrups. Easy peasy. That's what I do. And bring stevia in my purse. Or if it's a cheating day, at least I can put in much less sugar than they would have.

    Congrats for the self-control.

    Great news on the trip! That is so exciting! We will want to hear all about it when you get back. You'll be too busy when you're there to give us the newsreel.

    I love Paris and Barcelona and just about everywhere. I've had a great longing for a weekend in Paris for a while now. I should just do it -

    I've asked for 1/2 sweet and I've asked for no water (a friend suggested it. WOW! what a flavour bomb!) I shall try asking for no syrup.

    Hmm. I'll let you all know my impressions

    Yes, do it!

    I will give a report. Hopefully better than my East Cost trip report - where I only covered Quebec City and never posted anything about NB, NS or PEI!

    Wednesday

    It was a foggy day again today. The local buses were first delayed and then cancelled. I stayed in bed till 10.

    The past few days (idk how many exactly) I've been eating a slice of quiche first thing in the morning. Today, I didn't. I didn't even have a morning Chai. At lunch time, when my Farmer was eating, i decided to have my slice of quiche. I wasn't really hungry, but I figured it was time to eat.

    It seems that the sooner I eat, the sooner I "wake the Dragon" (turn on the hunger) Weird. Not "normal". But then again, as a friend told me the other day I'm not "normal" Idk. Some days I can go till 1 or 2 without eating, other days I'm STARVING at 10 am (I'm NEVER starving before that) I wonder if it depends on when I wake up??? I should keep track of that - the # of hours from waking up to hunger... ('cause some days I'm up a 5:45 and some days it's 10am)

    I unpacked a couple of boxes, did laundry, put some clothes away, surfed the net, made bone broth and a coconut oil, macadamia butter, creamed coconut, shredded coconut "snack". Kinda wasted the day. I had tons of plans yesterday for what I was going to accomplish today. Somehow, it didn't happen.

    The bone broth I'm making is kinda neat. You reduce it down and then you cool it in a shallow pan and cut it into "jello" squares. Then you can add the cubes to you cooking or a cup of hot water. I wonder what they taste like cold?? Here's the link Also, did you know that you could make more than one batch of stock from the same bones? I did not know this.

    Supper was fried chicken thighs and stir fried veggies: carrots, broccoli, onion, water chestnuts, mushrooms, fresh bean sprouts, garlic, (forgot the ginger), rice wine vinegar, a couple spoonfuls of jarred Pad Thai sauce. A mango for dessert.

    Daughter is working. It is foggy again tonight.

    I should mark some of my Home Instruction Student's work tonight.

    Tomorrow I'm going to my OLD dentist to fix my tooth. My old dentist moved to London, the new guy moved into the local office. I won't go back to the new guy. (funny, the old dentist is young, the new dentist is old)

    I hate going to the dentist.

    When we lived in Italy, my parents loved Spain and Holland. They didn't care for Paris - if I remember correctly it was the attitudes toward Americans that they didn't like. My parents were not "ugly" Americans - they really tried to fit in. The Italians loved them!

    Thursday

    Foggy morning again, but the buses ran.
    I did not

    Quiche, Chai, on the road at 8, through the fog to the chiropractor's and then on to my old dentist.
    I know it sounds weird, but I liked it at the dentist (well, I felt comfortable there) MUCH better than the new dentist.
    I was nice and frozen, didn't feel a thing

    Then I drove to Novack's and waited in the line (it went around the corner and down the block!) I got in line at 11:30. It was a lovely warm day, 14C, I had the Galaxy Tab with me so I read while I waited. It really didn't seem t take that long...but it was 1:40 when I got in the store!! Crazy!!!

    I had a gift certificate and I wanted to use it. I found out once I was IN the store that they will be open until they run out of merchandise. So I coulda/shoulda waited. Whatever. It was an experience. I spent 2 hours in the store, wandering, looking, trying on stuff. I bought some travel supplies and a "base layer" (a black thin pair of ladies thermal "long johns") and with my certificate I only spent $8!!

    I got back to my car at 3:30 and realized that I hadn't eaten since 8am! It surprised me. I wasn't starving or anything, but between 3:30 and 4 I ate 4 almonds, 4 Brazil nuts and a few Cacao Nibs that were still in my purse from the movies. I had a couple more stops before I got home.

    Surfer Son pulled in at the same time as me, with his Girlfriend! I had NOTHING out or planned for supper. I grabbed two frozen packages of sliced turkey breasts (our friends raised, butchered and cut up the turkey for us) My Farmer put an egg, Arrowroot flour and (crushed up Special K) coating on them and we fried them up along with hashbrowns and peas. Not an ideal supper...but whatever.

    I wanted wine BUT I drank lemon water in a wine glass instead!!
    (Has anyone noticed the absence of wine this week and last?? - Not counting the weekend)

    I grabbed a couple squares of the creamed coconut, coconut oil, macadamia nut stuff, and a Bengal Spice and the props I'd made and collected this week and went to play practice. There are 2 practices till the dress rehearsal!!!!!

    I teach tomorrow.
    G'nite
