I could have sworn that someone told me/I read/I heard that when you replant/plant peonies that they won’t bloom for 2 years…I purchased/planted peonies this year and they soon bloomed…Maybe Missouri peonies are different than Iowa peonies? Kim Balmer – you are experienced in peonies…what do you think?
I also planted some day lilies…one was blooming when I bought it..the other wasn’t. Yesterday – they were both blooming. Here’s my favorite – the late bloomer…
I have a favorite bowl…It is about 31 years old and used to have blue cartoon characters on it. I know it is that old because I got it for Jenny when she was about a year old.
It’s rubbery plastic and been in the dishwasher so much that it is probably bleeding carcinogens…but I continue to use it. I started thinking about it tonight while trying to be healthy with my non-fat, unsweet greek yogurt mixed with cinnamon, honey and blueberries.
With him being gone this week, I’m trying to change the way I eat and have been doing pretty well. Jenny and I just got back from Cosco where she helped me buy healthy and gluten free by asking me if I was sure that is what I wanted, reading my labels or just giving me the look. Just for the record though – she did buy a package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….so there! I have veggies, blueberries, blackberries, organic chicken and hamburger and gluten free noodles. I seriously think I’ve been feeling better for giving up wheat bread at the beginning of the week. Dr. Oz had a dr/author on today talking about how today’s wheat is just not good for you and said many health ailments disappear a week after removing wheat from your diet. He also said that wheat grown now has a very high glycemic index and is known to cause an addiction so you crave it. I can say that may be true in my life. I’m nearly convinced. Well, that is all that is on my mind tonight…so
Until next time….
