Avast, me hearties! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Today's Booty: We got in our shipment of Chocolite with the new one point Chocoalte Almond Coconut chocolate. We got in the second PB2 shipment of the week. This one has the newest product from them in the form of the Chocolate Peanut Butter. This product is also 1 Point on Weight Watchers®. We also got in a new assorted hard candy mix.
Green Tip: A steak might be an American institution, but it comes with a side of environmental costs. Central and South American forests are being cut or burned down to provide pasture. Effluent from feedlots pollutes land and waters, and each cow produces 300 liters of methane-a greenhouse gas-every day. Consider reducing the amount of meat you eat; while cows aren't problematic in and of themselves, modern mass-farming methods take a toll. [Brought to you by Page-a-Day calendar.]
One of the things that my wife has at her job is flex time. I'm always a bit jealous when it comes to a Friday that she has saved up enough time to take off. It seems like it is every other week, but I'm sure it is closer to once a month. While I know she doesn't have a dream job, the flex thing is pretty cool. Random days off rock!
It's a perfect day to take off as well. The weather, while warming up a little, is still in that great range that gives us the warm but not hot weather during the day. The evenings have been just about perfect. The last few nights, we've been out on a walk with very little to complain about from the stand point of the weather. Even the bugs have seemed to disappear with the cooler front.
