Monday Musings

What a sweet holiday. I loved eating at the R's! They made it so fun (and full) for all of us.

I hopped on the scale at Publix today. My cell phone must weigh a ton because it was in my pocket and my weight was more than it should be. Maybe I should go for a slim phone? [yuk]

Ty had a horrible cold, and now his sisters have the same horrible cold! We're so thankful that he made the long drive to be with us. On the way home there was so much traffic, it took him 13 hours to make the 10.5 hour drive! I'm glad he didn't stay for church but got an early start.

We don't have a working camera right now, so no pictures!

On Sunday evening Glenna, Himself, and I went to pick up some raw milk. After reading Real Food: What to Eat and Why by Nina Planck, we're convinced that raw milk is the way to go. Himself says it was like a weird, third world experience as we stood in line in someone's driveway, waiting to buy milk. At least we had an adorable boxer with a deflated soccer ball to entertain us! She would take turns bringing the ball to people in line so they could kick it for her.

We came home and did the taste test of the raw whole milk vs. the store bought whole milk. The raw milk was definitely richer, while the store milk has a watery after-taste. Still, for what we pay for it, it's almost used for medicinal purposes only. Raw milk = white gold. I wish Florida would make it legal to sell raw milk as other states have done. Then maybe we wouldn't have to stand in a driveway to buy some.

I've started my Christmas shopping. Going to be a light year, but I know it won't be light in the area of God's blessings! Already, He has done so much for us to be thankful for.

Uh oh, I'm healthy so far!
Maybe I'll feign illness to try some of your raw milk...

Just so you know, those scales at Publix are a good 5 pounds heavy!

I'm a firm believer in raw milk! It's the miracle drug. :-) Actually, around here, we call it "real milk" or "the milk from cows," as opposed to "fake milk" and "the milk from bags/stores."

Phyllis, are you able to get raw milk easily where you are?
