… no football to watch… so started the day by deciding “how hard can it be to take plumbing apart and fix a clogged kitchen drain and I fixed it!!  … followed by amazing cardio workout and weights (I am still sore two days later as I’m posting this)… :-)

… and ended the day at a fun dinner party with a great bunch of world travelers… and french chocolate pot de crème… :-)

Share this on Twitter

… when I moved to Brevard in 2010, there were very few organic options at Ingles… that has certainly changed today!  I’m so happy to be able to find organic options in everything that I buy every week… it’s so important if you are concerned about your health… :-)   Feel free to stop me any time and ask me about WHY I buy organic…
