The Mad Hatter: Have I gone Mad? Alice: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

1. Wonder if the honey bees are still alive and thriving in our hives in NC. It’s been a cold winter…I hear

2. Snap… over roasted the nuts for the chocolate bark I’m making. They don’t taste too burnt…overly charred foods are not good for you…can cause cancer…...hell, I’ve done worse and nuts are expensive. These few won’t be what finishes me.

3. Really need to be blogging…lots of ideas….attempting to manage them and get them to paper.

4. It’s too cold to walk…maybe I could bundle up to be warm…….no, I dont’ want to be cold.

5. Not really enjoying my current read…..not quitting though..…need to get it over with so I can begin a new one…..but maybe it will be like reading John Irving novels are to me…..hate the beginnings and middles but love the endings…I’ll be optimistic and stick with it.

6. My read is getting better….glad I found time to read some more today.

7. Vitamins aren’t sitting well on my stomach today

8. My lip line isn’t as prominent or symmetrical as it use to be…wonder if I’ll become one of those older ladies with lipstick drawn outside the lines and not know it.

9. I’m hungry….it’s too early to be hungry…what’s too early….I’m hungry when I’m hungry and I’m hungry…….or maybe I just don’t want to vacuum.

10. What’s for lunch.

11. Do these pants make my butt look big…what does it mean when hubby says “It looks the size it is”

12. Starting tomorrow….I’m going to walk more.

13. Floors need vacuuming…..maybe later this week.

14. A pretzel….I’ll eat a pretzel.

15. Did I take my vitamins….oh yeah, I did…they made me nauseous.

16. Should I cut my hair..…I’m older and “they” say shorter hair is better, more youthful. I don’t like short hair on me……I’ll grow it as long as I can and maybe never cut it again.

17. Wonder if hubby will go to the farmers market for me with my list so I can go to the Y for a Zumba class…If I don’t see what’s there I won’t know what he doesn’t get. It’s fine.

18. Call Mom.

19. Call Insurance company.

20. Wash clothes….I could wait a few more days to get a full load but I want my grey pants now.

21. Why does 40 degrees at the beach feel colder than 20 degrees in the mountains.

22. Ice cream would be good…..GET REAL….you can’t eat ice cream in the middle of the day.

23. My jeans feel a little loose in the thighs….hmmmm.

24. Don’t weigh…..you will just be disappointed.

25. I’m gonna think about doing a stone mosaic…a copy of the one I saw that looks like a Persian rug…at the entrance to my garden….does it matter that the ground’s not level.

26. I see dust on the shelves…maybe if I adjust the window blinds it won’t show.

27. Time to begin my veggie garden seed order.

28. I should drink some water.

29. Going for a walk.

30. Need to check something off my to do list today.

31. I want to read….to do list first.

32. Is my hair too flat on top.

33. Polish my nails.

34. I’m too full….ate too much lunch.

35. What will I cook for dinner.

36. I’m going to only eat 500 calories a day for 2 weeks……..That’s crazy…you won’t do that.

37. I’m embracing my aging….I’m embracing my aging….I’m embracing my aging.

38. Is this a wart on my finger…….Buy duct tape.

39. Do I imagine being sick….or well….is there anything other than imagination….especially if it’s true that thoughts create things.

40. I am grateful for my great life, my hubby, my friends and all my life’s abundances.

41. Glad I stayed with my read….a great book…The Known World by Edward P. Jones.

42. Food….I’m thinking about food again…..need a plan for dinner. Hubby is playing at The Corner Bar tonight and I love their salad and house dressing…..made with nutritional yeast….need to google and share the recipe. I love this salad dressing.
  • 1 c nutritional yeast
  • ⅔ c water
  • 2 T soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 2 T honey or agave or maple syrup
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • ½ c olive oil
  1. Blend all except oil in the blender until smooth. Slowing drizzle in the oil while continuing to blend. Store in the refrigerator. I love this dressing.
