Color is good....

Yesterday I went to the doctor for my yearly physical.

My blood pressure was high, my cholesterol was high,

I'd gained some weight, and I didn't feel so hot.

My doctor said eating right

doesn't have to

be complicated and it would

solve my physical

problems. He said just think

in colors...

Fill your plate with bright
colors... greens,

yellows, reds, etc.

I went right home and ate an
entire bowl of :

And sure enough, I felt better immediately.

I never knew eating right

could be so easy.

Happy dreary - dreary day!
Ok, some family members are down with the crud that has invaded Huntsville :( Niki went to the ER this am and they came in and looked at her and said - you have sinusitis! UHM, NO I don't think so. Achey, feverish, can't talk, gasping for air, back hurts, couphing/choking. Overall miserable. As a mom I believe she either has that crud that some other people have around her or she has Phemonia - Jonathan had walking Phemonia several years ago - and her symptoms are very much like his were. So I took her home ( I really really wanted to bring her home to take care of her, but with others in the house, I don't want to intentionally bring it in the house, you know?) Got her some juices to drink, soup to eat, and then she vicksed her self down & went to bed.
Faith, Anthony & Emma all have the cruddies too. Anita was sweet & took Emma home with her to care for her till her mommy gets better and is able to care for her again. Which works out good since I have to work and all and that way we don't have to constantly get her in & out in the weather. So, if you don't want the sickies, then I guess don't come visit us, which makes me sad.
So, now I am off to go get some sewing done. Ta-Ta for now.
