Hi friends! After enjoying a beautiful week of temperatures in the 50s I was finally embracing spring and now somehow it’s snowing/sleeting outside in April. Maybe it was a mistake to move back North? I wonder how the real estate prices are near the equator. This week I spent most of my downtime browsing furniture and home decor¬†sites, daydreaming about decorating a new house. When my eyes glazed over from trying to tell the difference between 10 different shades of white, I came across some links that might be of interest.

My parents have a wooded area behind their house that Dee loves to walk in. But when she comes home we have to check her meticulously for ticks. As tick season approaches here is what to do if you are bitten by a tick.

    That marathon article! I ran one in January (my first), and Im totally not surprise by that information. My kidneys were giving me a fit during and after!

    That article about eating your veggies is so interesting! Though I’m sad that they left off roasting-it’s a great way to bring out the sweetness in vegetables usually experienced as bitter.
