Wesley Chapel, Florida
It was another hot, muggy Florida day. The past two days we’ve been getting some strong afternoon storms passing through, but so far the worst of them have gone around us. Living in a motor home can be a scary place for some one who is afraid of storms!
After the storms passed, we went over to the office and extended our stay here another 6 days. We had been scheduled to leave today, but Al has a few more pest control accounts to do and an appointment with an ENT tomorrow. He’s been dealing with a sinus infection for quite a while and he can’t seem to shake it. Getting the new truck set us back a little.
We now plan on leaving this coming Sunday. The new truck will stay here at a friends house and the old truck will be come with us. Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about the Honda anymore! When we get back, we should have be able to get the new Nissan Frontier set up as our toad, and we can sell the old Nissan Frontier.
Today, we are in a bit of withdrawal/mourning. We finished up the tv series “24” yesterday.
Yes, we watched all 8 seasons! Yes, I know we could be considered “couch potatoes.” But it was so darn good! We are really going to miss the excitement of watching Jack Bauer get in and out of trouble. What an exciting show. If you’re looking for something fun to watch, this is the show. It was nonstop excitement , but not all shoot-em-up, and car crashes though. There was plenty of love and romance to keep the ladies interested. It was definitely the best series we’ve ever seen. Much better than Dexter, Friday Night Lights, and even better than Breaking Bad.
Like most of our readers out there, we have been following along on David and Sherry's journey through his stem cell transplant.
Most of you know David and Sherry are vegans, and follow a healthy life style. David seems to be doing quite well so far with his transplant. Could his healthy eating have made a difference? Possibly, but I don’t want to jinx him.
A while back Sherry mentioned a book called The China Study. She recommended it and I was interested, but never quite got around to getting the book. Click on the link and it will tell you a little about the jest of the book. I think it’s well worth reading.
The other day I read a guest post that The Good Luck Ducks posted on another blog.
They detailed their “10 day juice re-boot” diet. The China Study was mentioned again, so I went to Amazon and downloaded the book for $8.98.
I have just started the book and so far, I’ve found it interesting, and very thought provoking. It has already gotten me to consider making some much needed changes in our diets. Convincing Al to make these changes could be a bit tricky though!
His first reaction was what I expected, but I think I convinced him of the wisdom of eating less animal based protein, and more plant based foods. He agrees that we need to change our diets. We eat out too often and at home tend to rely on quick ready to eat foods like frozen pizzas. I do not like to cook and am not a good cook.
Roxanne recommended a few other things on the post. One of them is a free video called Forks over Knives. I haven’t watched it yet, but I’ll give it a go.
So…..I have some watching and reading to do. I’ll let you know if I find out anything interesting!
