We live in a brand new housing development, so there aren't any mature trees here yet. No, we won't have to rake any leaves; however, in our last house Beloved just went over them with the lawnmower and that wasn't a problem.
In December 2008 I literally trembled with shock and disbelief immediately after a fall from a standing position on our kitchen counter that shattered my left shoulder. (I was decorating above the cabinets -- I don't do that anymore!)
Whether we like it or not, we are ALL role models to somebody and that most certainly does not exclude athletes. As for the responsibilities of sports organizations when it comes to dealing with off-the-field behavior, whatever their employees (the athletes) do reflects on the character and reputation of the organization. I think the sports organizations should be strict with off-the-field behavior and be swift in ridding themselves of the offending players. These people are getting away with crimes with relatively little repercussion for their actions. There are plenty of other players who can replace them, who would be grateful for the opportunity to fill those positions honorably.
Why do they keep players who commit crimes but release fine men like Tim Tebow??? I will answer my own question. Today in sports the theme is "win now" with thugs instead of developing the playing skills of good character players. (phrased with the help of my hubby, an avid Denver Broncos fan).
The winter season is the toughest. We love our cold climate, so that, combined with the germs of the general public makes anyone more susceptible to colds and flu. I will say, however, that in the past nearly six years Beloved and I have been markedly more healthy since we lost weight, began eating even more nutritiously, added in exercise, and nicotine was ushered out of our home.
Of the choices given, Clean Eating best describes how we eat and it serves us very well. Trash fish just sounds disgusting; Cauliflower run through the food processor makes a wonderful, healthy and low-calorie substitute for rice*; I love quinoa; I drink about 2 Tablespoons of fermented Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar every morning with a glass of water; and community supported food is a great idea. I wouldn't mind giving kaniwa a try, as long as it's gluten-free (is it?).
May September's blessings overflow into October!
There is not one single day or event that stands out for me in the month of October, but it is a fun time of year. This is the month when we often get our first snow on the ground.
