    So true. The unbridled joy is what gets me. And the persistence... "Grandpa," from the carseat in the back as we make our way home, "I want my big, red truck." About every two minutes. LOL! Cheerfully, because we had promised he would get it, but he kept checking in so we wouldn't forget, I guess.

    I cracked this evening. I made mayo with canola oil... Tuna salad was on the menu (lots of celery and apple, as well as savoury and walnuts and onion) and I knew the EVOO mayo just wasn't going to cut it. I have got to find a way around this problem. One that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    Sleep: 9 hours? I need another night like that to catch up. I was pretty worn yesterday.

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Brunch: Scrambled eggs with onion, celery, and cheese
    Supper: Tuna-apple salad on a bed of spinach greens
    Snacks: two small cookies, few pork rinds, Siobhan's primal "candy" with apple butter instead of honey

    Exercise: 2 km walk

    Activities: Small chores, changed bedsheets, emptied dishwasher, laundry, food prep, hand dishes

    Got carried away with snacking this evening. Not too sure what got into me. Oh well, hopefully it won't set me back much. It's just the fact I kept doing it even though my tummy was full that bothers me.

    Try your mayo with regular or "light" (referring to taste only, not fat content) olive oil rather than EVOO. The flavour is more subtle and less "olive oil"-ish.

    Lovely times you're having with the grandkids. Personally, I'm having visions of the empty nest. Mine are presently 17 and close to 16, we expect to be moving (work related) in 2 or 3 years and don't anticipate they will come with us. Interesting times ahead.

    And the Tuna Apple salad does sound really good!

    i just noticed you are in Canada I love Canada. When i visited last year we went to Niagra Falls - it took my breath away and every one was so nice to us. It is a lovely place. that was the second time I've been - DS has relatives up there and visits most summers

    Yup, I like the salad. It's one apple, one stalk celery, a bit of onion, chopped in the food processor with a bit of lemon juice to keep the apple from discolouring. Then a tin of tuna (water-packed and drained), a few walnut pieces, some savoury, and mayo. Serve on a bed of lettuce or spinach or whatever. Or eat straight. I made 3 tins' worth, seeing as I had two hungry males to feed and it was our main meal of the day. I can make one tin do two light meals for me.

    Thanks for that idea, Greensprout. I will definitely try it. I enjoy the empty nest thing, although it never seems to last long... LOL! I just go with the flow. And yes, the grandkids are such a joy. I have a little booster seat for the toilet that Grandson #1 gets to put a happy face sticker on every time he uses it. "A red one an' a blue one an' a green one..." LOL!

    CM, can't say I've made it to Virginia yet, although southern PA is pretty close. This year I lucked out. I was down there for Easter, and all the trees were in bloom: dogwoods, crabapples, sandcherries... And then I came back home and got to do spring bloom all over again. My favourite time of year, twice in one season! Niagara is wonderful, although it's too bad it's such a tacky tourist trap. If you want a tourist trap that isn't tacky, go to Banff. Spectacular at any time of year. I was there often in my teens and a piece of my heart has stayed there, I think. Actually, I have pieces of my heart distributed across the country, so I have several places that give me that happy ache when I can go there.

    Well, we're supposed to get thundershowers this afternoon, so I'm trying to get a bunch of repotting and transplanting done this morning. Break time is over!

    You know, I just finished munching on a red pepper. A plain red pepper. And it suddenly occurred to me that this is something we almost never do. We chop them and throw them in salads, we slice them and put them on pizza or whatever, we cut them in strips and dip them, we roast them and throw them in our favourite recipe. But they really are quite wonderful all by themselves. The candy of the vegetable world.

    Yeah Judg - good news! Son came home last night and said he should be going back to a full 40 hours in a couple weeks so its time to start looking for an apartment! You'll hear my YAHOO all the way to Canada when the move is final and my husband and I are alone for the first time EVER! Second marriages and mixed families aren't the best recipe for newlyweds! I'm so excited I could burst!!!!!

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    Funny Judg, I eat pepper like that all the time. Much it while I'm making eggs or whatever.

    Hi, btw. I admire your perseverance and progress!

    I eat peppers plain all the time. I prefer the green ones over the red and yellows/oranges. They don't need dip. They're tasty as is.

    Your tuna salad sounds wonderful!
