    I had to get straight to the kitchen and try the drink. Not bad. I used mineral water, but same idea. I do prefer the stevia in bottles (at least for the brand I use) perhaps because there are fewer ingredients. I do keep a few packets in my purse for coffee shop lattes though.

    I'm not worrying about stevia, it has a clean track record so far, and they've been using it for decades in Japan.

    Now you see, you don't have to worry about culling your clothing herd; the process is taking care of itself. You might be interested in a blog called the Vivienne Files (I believe the author is a New Englander), which is all about creating entire wardrobes with few pieces, with a decided French inspiration. She creates photo files of ensembles, based on a colour scheme, or a scarf, or a particular piece of clothing, or whatever. I'm not a fashionista, but I like her approach, which is simple, unostentatious elegance.

    Oh, a similar drink you might like is mixing ginger tea (just brew up some grated ginger root) with club soda or equivalent. It doesn't even need to be sweetened, but can be if you're craving a sweet drink. Other than that, I've been drinking iced coffee, with a little cream and some stevia.

    I'll try the liquid stevia, it is probably easier and more cost effective. I was brewing ginger tea but I had forgotten about it - thanks for reminding me!

    Is it okay if I admit I am exhausted and my back hurts? I feel I have made real progress today but wow, what a lot of work. I have eaten - some beef and an egg in the morning and lots of strawberries. I'm going to rest for awhile.

    Thanks for the blog, it looks fun. I guess I want to be a fashionista but I am way too practical and into comfort. Actually, I get a lot ideas (not actual buying ideas but just general stuff) by looking at older actresses that I admire. Julie Christie, Helen Mirren, Claudia Cardinale, etc. They dress their age but don't look frumpy and they don't look uncomfortable either.

    I have eaten a lot of strawberries today. It is high season here, so I am gorging like Groka would have. I went gathering to the stand down the street. On the way home I couldn't help eating them even though some were kinda muddy. (Lots of rain the past week.) I think I read somewhere here that dirt is beneficial, doncha know. I'm not going out of my way to eat it, but if I happen to get a little in my food I can handle it. These are about the best strawberries I have ever had, so juicy and intensely flavorful.

    Oh I've got powdered stevia. Too afraid of spilling liquids, LOL! I even forgot there was liquid stuff.

    Looking at people we admire is not at all a bad idea. I actually stumbled across that blog after googling Christine Lagarde because I thought she had class. (No, she wasn't on that blog. It was degrees of connection...)

    Christine Lagarde is definitely on the list. I'm not sure exactly what IT is, but she definitely has IT.

    If any readers remember the first part of my journal, you might be wondering where the goats are! The goats are fine, but they in the higher pasture for the summer. Too hot and buggy down here by the pond. I miss them. I'm going to ask my new landlord (not right away) how he feels about chickens.

    Went to the grocery store and got questioned about the stevia I purchased. Probably stupid to even try, but I tried to explain that use of any sweetener should be quite limited and not a huge part of one's diet. I got a blank look. Anyway, I got a bulk container (a small bulk container). Also bought some shrimp and you can imagine my unhappiness on discovering they are frozen. Oh well, I can thaw them.

    Just placed an order for Mark's new book. I hope it will help me as I continue to learn and refine my own primal lifestyle. I am looking forward to a strict paleo week, or maybe two or even a whole month. Yes, that is right, I'm not being sarcastic. I'm really looking forward to perhaps feeling even better and learning more about what I should eat to feel great.

    I'm debating the journal, I'm not as prolific a writer as you are! I weighed in today and I'm down 1/4 lb after travel. This is a first. I usually go up. Moved the Wii to a room I use, so hope that will encourage me to use it more. Your scrub and pants story are motivating me - I will hit a size 8 this summer!
