Down to Earth

Trees on a mountain

First things first: I made it to 10,074 steps today… Yay!

Second, it’s just weird out there. I took my mom to the store today and—after zigzagging through the aisles for what felt like hours—I realized that making “healthy food choices” will be MUCH harder than I anticipated. Why? Because there was NO food to choose from! Nothing good anyway. It may come down to take what you can get if people keep stockpiling their bunkers.

My mom has a cabinet that I call her Doomsday Cupboard. She says she likes to keep food in there because “she’s always worried that something may happen.” It’s a great concept, I’m just not sure how much nutrition we’ll get out of minute rice, baked beans, canned chili, and marshmallows. I’m glad we have our garden!

It’s nice to open my reader and see that it’s business as usual around here. To a certain degree anyway.

So… I’m going to do a new series. School is slow right now (that old WordPress class is a little too easy!) and I’m afraid there’s not much to talk about on the lifestyle changes at the moment (Yawn). I WILL be doing more Food Fun Facts, but I’m going to wait a couple of weeks for things to settle down out there.

Anyway, since Everything Red was so much fun, I decided to stick with the color theme. This new series is called….. drumroll, maestro…….

Going Green.

According to color psychology, green is the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. Green renews and restores depleted energy. So today’s green is a slightly modified photograph of a beautiful mountain top I visited in Colorado. In times like these, there is nothing more rejuvenating than being back to nature, and down to earth.

So take a deep breath… and relax.

    1. Oh hey! Thank you so much and looks like I made it! Thanks for the help/follow. I haven’t figured out the friending thing on there yet and mine is a cheaper knock off so I’m not sure it does everything the same. I did see on one of your posts you mentioned over 20,000 steps so sounds like you ARE more awesome than me! 🙂

  1. Congratulations on 10k! You must’ve been a busy 🐝. Love the idea of a green series, and I love the meadow in this picture. I thank you, as it has been gray and raining here for two days straight. I’m feeling a bit cooped up! Xx
