Good morning. Are you noticing that we are almost at the end of July? Yup, just today and tomorrow left. How quickly the days are flying by. The sun is shining, the temperature is 75F degrees with 83% humidity, and in a few hours temps will be up in the mid to high nineties. We're in for another scorcher.
My car needs to go in to the shop either today or tomorrow for a new safety sticker. Otherwise, it has to come off the road. In this state, we can't drive our cars without a current safety sticker. I find it amazing that other states do not have this same rule. It's mostly for the safety of the driver and any other occupants of the car.
Obviously, there's not much new happening here. I'm busy playing with my food numbers. I have to say that putting this much effort into figuring out what foods I can have and how I can have them does take the edge off enjoying them. By the time I've got it all figured out, I'm not all that hungry anymore.
Maybe this is why I never decided to study foods and diets. It's not really all that interesting. At least not to me. I guess I wasn't cut out to be a scientist. Unless of course the topic is rocks and gemstones. I just love rocks and gemstones.
I have a big black rock that my Uncle Freddie gave to me years ago. The story is that while he and his wife were traveling across the mid-western states in their mobile home, they had a huge black rock that they used as an extra brake. They would place it behind one of the tires for extra braking support. They found this huge rock somewhere in the desert.
On one of their stops, they learned that their big black rock was actually Black Jade. Of course, by now big chunks had been knocked off the rock so it was much smaller now. Once they learned that the rock was actually Black Jade, they brought it inside the mobile home. Later, Uncle Fred gave the rock to me. One of these days, I'll have to take a photo of my beautiful big black rock and share it here.
I found a couple really neat ideas on the web to share here. The first one is a way to recycle and help the small birds at the same time. What a great idea for a birdhouse!
Did you ever think that a cupcake paper liner could help keep flies and other bugs out of your drinks? Well, neither did I! This is so simple, yet super helpful.
Before I go, let me leave you with this interesting little story about Karma. (borrowed from the web)
Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
