Ho-Hum Day

There is nothing funny to share today.
I haven’t peed my pants. I’m not having intestinal disasters with broccoli. I’m not terrorizing our town with gas or “that time of the month” accidents. I haven’t gained 4 pounds from binging on forbidden fruit, and I haven’t lost that magical 4 or 5 pounds either.
Nope. It’s been pretty calm around here.
Which is a nice change.
I don’t know how long it will last, but what I do know is that while the winds of change are calm, I’m going to enjoy the cool breeze. It’s wonderful that life isn’t blowing up the back of my skirt, like usual.
I don’t expect anyone to comment on this post, because there’s nothing to comment on. I am utterly and completely out of words today. And I am totally ok with that. I think it’s awfully egotistical of me to think that I have all the answers all the time. Some days, it’s just fine for me to feel- for lack of a better term- silenced in the heart and mouth.
Today is a good day for reflection.
And that’s exactly what I am going to do. And I promise that if something happens to shake things up, I’ll keep ya posted.
Till then….. I’ll give you a funny calorie chart I found online to make you giggle!

And I thought I was keeping the weight off due to exercise! Oh well. Thought I'd let you know that in Sweden this week the floor collapsed in a slimming club due to the combined weight of all the slimmers! LOL

Funny story.. So when my husband and I were in college (he is a big hunter) he and his buddies went duck hunting one day and came back with a few ducks (so they said). They decided to cook them for supper that night (grilled duck breast wrapped in bacon is really not that bad). However, they ran out of gas for their grill. So, they decided to bake it (yuck). When it was ready, they handed me a piece and told me it was "black duck." So I tried it (it was gross) and later they informed me it was actually CROW! So I have burned my 200 calories from eating crow! NEVER eat anything someone tells you is black duck.

I have LOTS of days like that. Then I have days when I think of 4-5 blog posts. If only I could write them down. Yes, that's what a sensible girl would do. But no one has ever accused me of that.
Enjoy the calm (and hope there's not a storm on the way)!
