Random Thoughts

  1. I've been on a green tea kick lately. After I've finished my daily pot of coffee, of course. Did you know that green tea is extra good for you? Just 4 cups a day helps fight cancer, dementia, high cholesterol, heart disease and obesity.
  2. I can tell winter has really settled in. Static cling in my hair brush, dry noses, and skin have brought out the humidifier in our house....and lots of body lotion!
  3. I cleaned my jewelry this week. Would you believe I had cookie dough under my diamond that I think was from the holiday baking? ha.
  4. You know it rains when ever I run errands and go to the grocery, right? Because of having sick kids home from school on and off, I changed my grocery day three times this week. It rained every single day I chose. ha.
  5. My bangs need trimmed. Just sayin'.
  6. Speaking of my hair, I received my Certificate of Appreciation today from Locks of Love. My ponytail arrived safe and sound and they said thank you.
  7. I'm craving a peanut butter cookie, or two. :)

  6. Pat ~ of course! I should chant that rhyme
    when I want the weather to be sublime.
    I'll try that next week.
    If it works, you'll think you're neat!
    ha.

  7. Pat ~ did you see in my comments yesterday that gloria thought orlin and cassie were imaginary pets? ha.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like your random thoughts today, and the picture too. I was on a Green Tea China Tips from Starbucks for a long time...I need to drink for tea. Since working out, it seems my drink of prefrance is "Water"....get so thirsty.

    Funny you are in the mood for peanut butter cookie, as I posted a version of one today!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. If the rain goes away
    You'll see a whole new benefit to rhyme play..haha
    Yeah I saw that too
    Gloria was a tad off in her view

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pat ~
    Maybe I'll be able to control the weather
    and send you the rain and wind on a feather.
    Would you like snow?
    I'll just have the clouds blow
    A little sun?
    I'll get right on that, hon.
    lol...
    The power of rhyme!
    Could be a crime!

    So you just let that rhyme idea sink

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pat ~
    The weather monster!
    He needs a sponsor.
    Maybe he could get an act
    on your Face It Facts.

    All rain and no shine
    with some snow so sublime.
    And maybe a flood
    to make your mood go thud.

    ReplyDelete
  51. hopefully they'll turn out right, they are a bit sticky to handle but really good to eat :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. sticky dough usually makes the most tender rolls and bread. You're making my mouth water! ha. I bet those smell wonderful baking, too!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm sure your beautiful hair will be well loved by the person who will wear it, Betsy. Locks of Love is such a good cause.
    I have a good friend undergoing chemo after ovarian cancersurgery, and she just bought her wig.

    It has been raining quite a bit here lately ..still better than having ti shovel out a lot of snow!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'll be sure to post them if they turn out :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  56. If it helps with all of those diseases, I should be disease free, and skinny as a rail :)
    I like to drink green tea at least once a day, otherwise it's the black stuff !
    Your short hair style is so pretty on you, but then anything would be !
    Hugs,

  66. Thanks, Janice. The jar, clementines and tea were just like they are pictured on my counter and they caught my eye as a beautiful still life. I just moved it to a dark background for the photo. I loved the green and orange colors together. :)

  72. Gloria ~ a bowl of that and some strawberry tiramisu and I'd be all set! ha. Oh yum.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Peanut butter cookies? Yum!!! Bang trimming is suchhhh a pain. I feel you there :)

    And I SWEAR by green tea. It helps balance everything in your body. It's great :) The Japanese serve it at work like Americans would serve coffee. I cheat though and put honey in it. It's way too bitter w/o a sweetener.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Jax ~ well, I sweeten it with a little sugar! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Gloria ~ both your lemon and strawberry kinds looked so good.

    No new post for me tonight, by the way. Didn't want you to be looking for one. ha.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi ladies, I was waiting patiently for you to post, and finally I came looking for you. Sorry you aren't feeling good Betsy. :(

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thanks God the kids make their things (normally at PC) and I made my things, now I have to make some for dinner, Im not organized like you (lol)
    Also I have twins but One (daughter) is veggi and the other yes love the meat!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hi Rebecca I said her is nice a day she rest for a while, how are you dear?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yes, your son is a typical man...loves the meat! Mine do, too. Except Harry...he won't touch it! ha.

    Sorry about your headache. Good for you for resting this afternoon! You certainly deserve that after the couple of weeks you have had!

    Hi Rebecca! How has your day been?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yes Dito can eat all the meat you give him! (I have to care him) but Esperanza dont eat meat about 3 years. Normally I ate the same food of her!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love veggies but I'd still be wanting some meat, too. ha.
    I'd probably eat what I fixed her, but steal a few bites of his meat. lol.

    I just fixed tea...green for me, roobios for The Mister. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. Southwest ~ oh, I love the occasional soda, but usually only if I'm out to eat..like a treat. You still get your caffeine that way though,right? :)
