Last Day to Enter!

Thanks so much for all your comments on putting my gym membership on hold.  I also talked to The Shepherd about this last night, and he agrees I'm getting ample exercise at home.  He said if I'm not running anymore, what is the difference between going to the gym and doing my regular work at home?  Nothing.  So, today I'll bravely call the Y and save myself quite a bit of $ between now and ....???

I quite enjoyed the ceral mix the other day, so again I mixed.  Dorset cereal, Kashi Go Lean, blueberries and skim milk.  Oh...little fuzzy.
In the morning I had an apple:
And throughout the day, this Luna bar.  I like Luna bars, almost like a chocolate bar.  I just read on the package today that they are for women.  Why is that? 
I made a monster salad for lunch.  Lettuce, spinach, radish, peppers, carrots and a lauging Cow cheese.  After eating some of it, I realized I forgot to add the cranberries and walnuts.  So, 2 photos, without the extras, then partially eaten, with the extras!
The Shepherd had been away fishing this past weekend, so we invited his parents over last night for a fish fry!  No photos, but it was awesome.  Fresh pearch, pickeral and pike, battered, fried in oil, potatoes done on the bbq and more salad.  So great.  Cookies and ice cream for dessert.

Here are more photos of tomatoes, peppers and the vines.  They've been sunning the last few days and will be outside in the ground this weekend.  They've been staring at the garden for days, so I know they're looking forward to feeding off that great soil out there!  Yes, I'm crazy when it comes to my plants!

This is the last day to enter my SIMPLY IN SEASON giveaway!  Tomorrow morning I'll announce a winner!  Good luck!



  1. Your salads always look so amazing...probably because everything is so fresh!

  2. Aren't salads wonderful in this weather???

    I just bought my veggies last night. Boston lettuce, tomatoes, green & yellow zucchini, spagetti squash....I think that's it. I've given up on bell peppers because I can't seem to grow them worth a poop. ;) I wish my garden at this house was as big as the one at my old place. Regardless, I'm excited about it!!!

    We'll be down in Picton at the end of June for a weekend and I think some fishing might come into play.....

  3. I've always wondered about that with Luna Bars as well, even though my boyfriend and my dad always steal mine haha!

  4. The salad looks awesome! I love salads, especially when the weather's warm!

  5. I wish I could grow plants as well as you do!!! I tried growing peppers one year and all I got was a tiny little one that the rabbits eventually ate.

  6. I just started reading your blog. Mostly because my name is Jessica and my grandpa calls me "just because."

  7. I bought P one of the bars and I'd never noticed they're made for women either. He didn't want to eat it. It was too funny. I had to ask him what he thought he'd grow from eating it! :)

  8. You make me want to start a garden! I'll have to put that dream on hold though until I have my own place and a little more responsibility ;)

    I think Luna bars are "made for women" because they have certain vitamins/minerals that women especially need? Just a guess

  9. AWESOME trays of goodies!!!!
    Glad you are putting gym on hold. I know what my own garden does for my body and mind, let alone a garden your size!
    have a GREAT Garden Season sweetie!

  10. I love the caramel nut brownie lunas! I never questioned why they are "for women" but I'd like to know now! Perhaps certain vitamins?

  11. That salad looks delicious. And did you really mean to say 1,000 sheep?!?! Holy cow. That's quite a flock you got there. :)
