Dinner is served. This was a quick, and easy dinner. Panko crusted friend shrimp. Very good, and super crunchy. Didn't bother to dig out the toaster oven/air fryer. Putting them on a cookie sheet in the oven actually works better. Broccoli 4 minutes in the microwave (very little water is needed). I never cook broccoli in a pan on the stove top anymore. Comes out much better and not mushy in the microwave. Salad is fruit and cottage cheese. Here I used canned Mandarin oranges. I really like almost any fruit and or a good ripe tomato with cottage cheese. Topped off with a nice glass of Pinto Grigio.
Mother Nature got confused. This was just a few days ago. We had about 3 inches, I think. It was a very wet and heavy snow. This tree branch is hanging about 3.5 feet below where it normally is. This is the Crap Apple all pretty with it's pink blossoms, but heavy laden with snow. Argh. Hope it doesn't get ruined. This is late April for crying out loud, we shouldn't be getting snow this late. This photo was taken through the window of my deck door and this tree made us feel almost locked in.
I finished this book..........learned so many things about this courageous woman. I highly recommend this book to read or listen to. I really enjoyed listening, as the lady reading it did a wonderful job changing her voice when she was speaking as Eleanor or as her Mother-in-law, Mama etc. Put it on your list.Started this book, but am sorry to say I stopped it. I found it a bit long in the tooth, which disappoints me, as I think she was an incredible woman. I've listened to 13% of this book and then switched to
listening to this book, read by Stacey Abrams and am really enjoying it. I've just over 1/3 of the way into this one (32%). While I say I am enjoying it, am also finding it maddening. I know voter suppression exists, it's in the news all the time. But, I had no idea how badly Republicans push to keep people of color from voting. It's beyond shameful and repulsive. Not just in her state of Georgia, but she speaks about that the most.
Perhaps, when I finish this, I'll go back to RBG and try a bit more.
No new pictures of my teal shawl, though it is growing in size. (see previous post).
I have picked up on my yoga again, trying to do it more often. On nicer days getting out to do my walks and get my steps in, and have done some yard work. I've ordered a full body vibration plate/whole body vibration plate. Several of my Fitbit friends have them and swear by them. Have you heard about them? Do you have one?
This is the one I ordered. 99.00 at Target, and Walmart, and Amazon. But, the return policy on Amazon was very bad, so went with Target which is close to home, should I need to return it. It's being shipped in about 10 days. Has 99 speeds, and 10 presets. The LifePro is what my friends have, but I opted for the lesser expensive brand. (Saved $50.00). They appear to be very similar in terms of size and options. One big difference is LifePro has a community component to it, and the lesser expensive model, Best Products doesn't.
