Things I’m Loving These Days

The Healthy Smoothie Bible: Lose Weight, Detoxify, Fight Disease, and Live Long– by Farnoosh Brock


I’m new to the smoothie scene. Oh sure, I’ve had them before, but never looked into making my own. Since I’m a smoothie beginner, I’m reading this book from start to finish and can’t wait to try some of the recipes. There’s a lot of good info for beginners like me, like a discussion of the health benefits of smoothies, a section on ingredients, selecting a blender and preparing ingredients and the actual smoothie. There’s also some good information on juicing and a comparison of juicing to smoothies and 108 Smoothie recipes and great colored pictures guaranteed to make your mouth water.

Member’s Mark Adult Multivitamin Gummies


This is Sam’s Club version of Vitafusion MultiVites. I’ve tried those before and can’t tell much of a difference other than these seem a bit softer and not as rubbery. Two gummies is a serving, to be chewed well before swallowing. There is no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors. They actually taste good and contain all natural berry, orange and peach flavors. They are gluten-free and vegetarian.

These Guys


I know they make the list often but what can I say? They are my comic relief. Love them.  Nugget (blonde tabby) doesn’t usually share the recliner (we call him our Archie Bunker sometimes) but I guess since Dakota was there first on this particular day, he decided he would be a nice boy.

This Book


I  can’t believe I’m just now getting around to reading this book. Best. Book. Ever. I bought it many years ago because it was on one of my son’s school reading lists. I think we started it but never finished it (or maybe I started it and never finished it). Yes, it’s about rabbits and since I love rabbits, I love everything about this book. I love how the author came to write the book (he was making up stories for his two young daughters and they were actually the ones who told him he needed to write it as a story). I love how even though it’s a fantasy adventure novel, you’ll learn a lot of truths about rabbits. The author based his rabbit behavior facts on a book written about rabbits called The Private Life of the Rabbit by Ronald Lockley, 1964.

I know Watership Down was adapted into an animated film in 1978 (six years after the book was published). From what I’ve read and been told, it was pretty graphic and violent in parts. I still think I’ll want to watch it after reading the book.

Private Selections Cherry Cordial Hot Cocoa


I like that Kroger’s sells this by the individual packet. It’s good to have on a cold winter night!
