Can It Be July Already?

Friday, July 24, 2009

Well, it's been raining...on and off for the past three days, with thunder and lightning, so....maybe I'm in Forks and just haven't realized it??

*looks around* There's no Edward though, so... ;)

I'm in shock that July is nearly over. It feels as though the 4th was just a week ago or so. I'm so sorry that once again it's been so long since my update and replies to comments. Somehow. I. Have. Not. Had. Any. Time. To. Get. On. I don't know how, or why......but somehow, summer is slipping away with me posting!! Gah. Plus, our camera is broken so I can't post pictures. *sigh*

But in me news, I've been trying to eat healthier, I've had quite a few people telling me I've slimmed down/lost weight, I've been reading cookbooks (checking out huge stacks from the library!) and loving every word/bite! ;) I'm more head over heels then ever with cooking and food and vegetables! I've fallen in love with them ever since we ate at Jason's Deli and I had the salad bar. Everything looked so good, I tried it and my mouth was exploding with flavors!
Sweet peas, alfalfa sprouts, cauliflower, beans, olives, Romain lettuce, baby spinach, purple/red onions...and healthy food is good!

There's granola, walnuts, whole wheats, almonds, pecans, bananas, cranberries, tomatoes, grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs, salads, hummus, grains, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, maderine oranges, grapes, cherries, salmon, tilapia, tuna, soup, flounder, shrimp, and the list goes on! :D

Aah, must go. I'll be back soon!


  1. I've really got to get off the computer and start packing for an upcoming trip, so I can't leave a long comment, but I did want to say... it's always good to hear from you, Grace dear, and I'm glad that you're doing well. God bless you!

  2. You'd best be back soon darling! I've missed you!

    Ha ha, summer's been slipping away with me as well! Been running around, doing summery stuff.

    Oh! And my mum said i can write letters to you! So if your mom says you can, then we can exchange addresses!

    Hear hear, about the healthy food! :-) I've been trying to eat healthier since the beginning of the year...Cut back on sweets/treats so that when I get to have a treat (like cake or ice cream at a bday party) it tastes really good!

    And isn't it amazing how many "healthy" foods taste really good???

    Oh, and I have to say: I <3 Jason's Deli's salad bar! I wish we had one "here." ;-)

    Gad mellon, mellon-nin!


  4. You're back!!!!

    I love healthier foods. It didn't stop me from eating waffles, ice cream, and sugar-covered strawberries topped with whipped cream for lunch yesterday, but on the whole...Health foods just taste better, I think.

  5. Yay, you're back! And still alive! :)
    Ooooh, healthy food IS good! I have been getting into eating healthier, too. I actually just posted about some yummy, healthy peanut butter and jelly COOKIES over on my blog! Go check it out if you have time! :)

  6. GRACE!! Thank you for the beautiful comment on my blog! *HUGS*
    And thank you for finally coming back and updating!! *GIANT HUGS*

    I'll send you MIU through e-mail if you have an address..if you use your parents, though, I don't know about that...I'm a little bashful :P

  7. Clare~ Be safe, dear sister! I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing trip "on the road". Oh thank you - you're so sweet and lovely. :) It is, likewise, always a treat hearing from YOU. :) You too; God Bless!

    Mamma Rose, I will, I will! Life is just so crammed and dizzily full at the moment - and I actually thought I'd be able to relax this summer (ha!)- I'm actually looking forward to when school sarts and thing calm down slightly...although with my new schedule I'm not sure if "calm" is the right word. ;)

    *sighs* Don't you wish it would last? I wish it would be a Narnian summer with sun, laughter and bowls of cool, delicious, wait a minute, that has been my summer so far! Thank you, C.S. Lewis!

    How was Camp????

    Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!! *GLOMPShertightly* I'll ask her; oh, I'm so happy! God is so good... :D
