Tulsa (along with many places) is getting slammed with unwanted, unexpected snow. I had heard the possibility of snow this week on the radio, but figured we’d be spared. Wrong. Tulsa is getting pummeled….and I did not cover my garden (and we’re in Dallas!). So much for my green thumb — I’m a bad garden mommy! I am HOPING that my potatoes, onion, spinach, and kale can withstand this unwelcome winter weather and pull through. Say a little prayer for me!
And just as I gloated about the 75 degree sunny weather in Dallas yesterday, it is now cold and rainy! I had planned a run this morning but weenied out. Mr. Prevention endured the cold and rain and headed out for 3 miles (good for him!)! We have massages booked this afternoon, compliments of our wonderful hosts. What a pleasant surprise, I cannot wait! 😀
If you have time, I strongly recommend any fellow bloggers to read this post by Honoring Health on “Comparing My Blog to Yours”. It was so enlightening and I felt so at ease after reading Christie’s take on blogging and the emotions it can surface as a writer. It stimulated some great responses, check it out! I’m sure we can all relate in many ways. I know I do!
Also, I was perusing my Cooking Light on our way to Dallas and I read something I decided I must share. The article was in response to reader comments regarding the supposed “lax” nature of Cooking Light’s idea of “light” as of late. The article stated in response:
The villainization and hero-worshiping of individual nutrients, meanwhile, is proving naive.
I really appreciated seeing this sentence. I think it’s so important to continue making strides in making nutritious food taste GOOD! If nutrition isn’t exciting and appealing, it will simply be a fad or a phase that people enter into for a finite period of time producing no lasting, maintainable changes. I appreciate Cooking Light taking time to explain that specific ingredients are not to be added to the “Naughty List” and others to the “Praise List”. This greatly limits the span of taste and quality that ought to be present in the foods we eat. All foods and ingredients, in my opinion, can be part of a healthy diet. Thanks, Cooking Light!
So, a big hello from Dallas and I hope that where ever you are has better weather than Dallas and Tulsa!!
Question: Do you find it difficult not to compare your blog to others? As Christie asked in her post, do you wonder why some blogs do so well and others not-so-well based on the quality of their content? While this is subjective, I’m sure we’ve all wondered! 😉
Random Question: If you filled out an NCAA bracket, who do you have winning it all? Kansas for me!
