It's a miracle!
I needed an onion to saute with some other vegetables for dinner last night. I've been pulling onions for a month now, but they've never looked like store-bought onions before.
Some of you are, I'm sure, tired of my gardening adventures, and for that I apologize. I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of putting a seed (or, in the onion's case, a set) in the ground and a few weeks later pulling food out. And it's good, healthy food, too. The waste from homegrown food goes into the compost bin and back to enriching the soil, not to the landfill or burn barrel.
And since this blog is supposed to be about my waist, I must tell you that garden chores (and other activities) kept me so busy yesterday I didn't eat a thing until dinner. That's rather unprecedented for me. I'm a three-squares-a-day kinda gal, as a rule.
I'm still loving the BlackBerry. I've cut my morning online time in half, giving me more time to play in the dirt. Pretty good trade-off, if you ask me. One of these days I'll have time to go for a walk again. Or even a run. I'm still maintaining my 5.5-pound loss for the year (snort!), and will weigh in tomorrow to see if I maybe, maybe have lost a pound a month for 2010.
Hey, it's better than gaining, right?
