    Love your different quotes!

    I am very fortunate in the organic/sustainable/free-range category. This part of the world is very big on local production, and meat is an obvious product for Maine. Our local veg is pretty scanty in the winter months, although you would be surprised. There is a year-round organic tomato farm and a fair amount of hydroponic stuff. And it's really fun to eat seasonal, just go to the market and see what is there and enjoy it. And it is relatively affordable. My employer chips in for a CSA, so it is basically half-price, can't turn that down! I can get the cheaper cuts of grass-fed beef for $4 a lb., that is unbeatable. I love grass-fed beef, it is so beefy. Wouldn't I like to tuck into a nice steak right now, with some green veg and a glass of good red wine...but I am at work. I have brought a very nice concoction, though. Spaghetti squash, tomato sauce, cheese, meatballs, more tomato sauce. Must go have some now!

    I keep a file of favourite quotes and cycle through them. I add to it whenever I see something I like.

    I really wish I had a market nearby.

    Read Mark's post today with great interest. IF is something that just happened to me and although I don't have evidence, I believe it is responsible for my weight loss. Also it is quite enjoyable, something I would never have suspected before starting this journey. I realize I am an odd duck, 53 years old and still not menopausal. I am generally on the 14/10 schedule but occasionally have gone 16 hours. In fact today I did just that and still wasn't hungry but ate anyway because I am under a lot more stress than usual with moving, lots of work (5 nights out of 7), my annual review coming up tomorrow AM, etc. etc. I was very glad to read validation of this in Mark's post, i.e. don't fast without 'pre-reqs' which I don't have right now.

    Actually what I just said is a bit confusing, to clarify - I did an IF of 16 hours but deliberately broke it because I realize this is not a good time right now.

    Well, I have some work to do, back later I hope.

    Another thing - my feet don't smell anymore. I take my shoes off whenever I can at work (when I am in my office I am by myself) and sometimes the odor - well, let's not talk about that. Last night I realized that was no longer a problem. When I went to my prayer group after work I fearlessly took off my shoes. No smell. This no B.O. business is really surprising to me.

    It must be! Who would think grains and sugar would be so smelly? Although I am guessing the sugar could feed the bacteria that smell bad?

    Actually, the little scent I can detect on myself is pretty pleasant. I wonder if Mark has done a post on this? Must go check -

    I am finally, at age 53, reading Proust. Love it. Can't believe I never this before. I am actually quite well educated and well read, but I have never picked up In Search of Lost Time. Maybe I am coming to it at the perfect time.

    Yesterday as I was leaving for work in the early evening I was surprised to find a very young robin on my front doorstep. It must have tried to fly a bit too early. Now, this was not a good place for a little bird. The neighbor's dog might come by any minute looking for a handout, as she often does, and that would not go well for the robin. The nest was far, far overhead. I went back inside for some gloves and as gently as I could picked up the little bird. With mama bird screaming at me, I deposited him under a huge rhododendron in my side yard. Hopefully he could shelter there and be cared for until his flight matures. I left for work wondering if I had done the right thing.

    This afternoon as I was again preparing to go to work I noticed a robin outside my kitchen window yanking a worm out of the ground, and then disappearing into the rhododendron. Again and again she did this as I stood very still and watched. Then I noticed a small movement. A little ways in, a fledgling sat on the ground, almost invisible. Mama Robin continued to feed her baby as I stood there, transfixed. At least it had survived 24 hours. I can only hope for the best.
