Today I woke up fine. Good spirits. Hair is great. I used my new shampoo bar and love it. Now I won't ever ever ever buy store bought shampoo. A bar is great.

Still no meat. Great. I found my graphic artist and we will work to get a logo for my soaps. I will then be able to have a custom design just for the soaps and products. Now I don't have to think on this.

Missy Beaver is sending me both her DVDS. Now does this rock or what? oh ya. That means I'll be kettlebelling up again. Now that, I really don't mind. I do love them. The other dvds were just too fast for me.

I don't think I'm exercising today. Just not feeling it. Happy about learning Graphics if I join a group called This place teaches you about any software program you want. I used to take tutorials years ago to learn Dreamweaver. But, I never needed Dreamweaver. I couldn't tell you to this day how to do a layer. I miss the pc for those fun days. It was nice working with someone instead of having someone just tell you what to do at the Apple store. They are busy and I don't feel creative but I still go for those hot things you just need an answer on right away.

Someone called me Vegetarian

lol. My friend is planning a gathering for her daughter who is going off to California to work as a Doctor. We were in D'angelos talking food. I asked her to make a Calzone Veggie. It was funny, she looked at me and said, Oh, ya, YOU'RE A VEGETARIAN. I said. yes. !!!! It felt good and just normal. Makes me keep myself this way also when others confirm it.

Yummy in my tummy

I made some Low Fat chewy Granola Bars today and I will be making these again. Easy, delicious, and healthy.

Each day is different

Why is it one day you can wake up with a smile on you face. Another day in the same week and you feel like you can punch a bull out. I don't get it. I don't want it. Today is a Bull day.

and again

we made it through another no meat day. I ate some fish and that's not meat.... is it? I wanted to get it out of the house but I still like fish so I don't think that will be put away. Hope not. I had candied sweets, one potato, Quiche, some noodles and some salad. A great day was had by me.

It's working

I don't know what day it is. I'm not going to count days, but weeks. So I've been doing this since June 2.
I had a client massage, and come to find out, she's vegetarian. This will be just find. The more people I surround myself with that do this the easier it will be. She also agreed, going vegetarian and doing it all your life is a transition. I signed up for Vegetarian times email and will probably get the magazine. I like to read paper rather then internet versions. Even though I'm always reading on the computer. I still like my paper. you can take it with you when you're not hooked in to the net.

Day 2

Done. I did no meat again today. I feel fine. I am missing nothing and I had three different meals so, I'm happy. I wonder if I can call myself a Vegetarian after doing this for a week:?

Meatless Monday

I did it with no problem. . No meat at all today. Breakfast - eggs and grits. Lunch - pita pocket of green peppers, onions, mushrooms and cheese. Then to top it off for dinner, I made a good eggplant parmesan. It came out great. Peelneggplant, dip in eggs, dip in whole wheat bread crumbs, fry. Spindle with parmesan chesse. Then pour on marinarra sauce. Bake about 10 minutes until bubbly. Then lay on mozzarella cheese. Bake until melted, enjoy with spaghetti

Hum. Now I see

I see at this blog it has vegetables on it. Did I know when I chose this that this was where I was headed? Not at all. Too bad it's so loud but we may as well make it loud.


YES, I've decided to go with the vegetable and fruit and nuts and legumes. Just waiting for my book to arrive so I can get at this properly. don't want to say, Oh I just eliminate meat. Well, I think I'll still eat Chicken and Seafood. I like my fish and sometimes a Little Chicken Parmesan my not be bad. It's more for my health now then the animals. I love animals but I'm not at the point of thinking my not eating them is going to save the planet. I have to save me and grow some stronger hair. That's my reason. Get off the blood pressure medication. It's not a strong one, just a precautions one.

Yesterday I ate only one meat meal and that was the bacon. I did that to get rid of it as I Just can't throw away food unless it's bad.

today, Monday June 6, is meatless Monday. I'll get a gadget to put on this site so we remember no meat on Mondays and then go forward.

I could have had my book here now but I decided to save $5. Wow. $5 and I could be reading or $5 in my pocket for more learning and supplies in my soaping adventures.

Another month flew

Man, I dont' get how these months are flying. I swear they are flying more when I'm not working then they do when I was working. Wow. Any how. I went for my usual but again, different, walk in the park today. That park is so uplifting. It picks me up when I"m down and it holds me when I'm cold. it warms me and welcomes my spirit. I talk to the trees and I get info from them also. Today my info was, use the Butterfly that you love as my watermark on my soaps. I might call my soaps Ancient Health, Ancient Heritage, Sun-Daze or even CocoPalm. I plan to put cocoa butter in all my products, hence the name cocoa and the palm oil will be in most of my soaps. I don't know. Names are so hard to choose. My sister says don't go doing what everyone else does by using the word *natural*. So, that's out. I can't call out to one ethnicity as that's not what it's about either. It's about using using good, natural, products from Africa, Ghana and Italy for the Olive Oil. All good oils with something to add to everyones skin. I love my soaping hobby and so look forward to sharing it with the world. Ya, I mean, I wish it makes it all the way to Cali, Texas, Wyoming, Washington State, and all the other states I'm looking at on this map on my wall. Got this map so I can relate to where others are as I read their blogs.
Here is a picture of what i'm talking about.
