Snow Go Away, It's Spring, Full Body Vibration Plate

 

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.

  1. I am sorry that you are finding RBG hard going. She was an incredible woman. I hope it picks up when/if you return to it.
    I look forward to seeing more of your shawl (in the fullness of time.
    What are you going to do about the email option? I would hate to lose your blog, and an email is the only way I find out you have posted. For some reason your posts do not appear in my reading list.

    1. Totally agree with you about RBG being an incredible woman. I use my blog log and can see when people have updated their blogs. I've never used the email thing, as I like to visit the blogs from the blog log and not have an email about it. I don't know how people will work around it, if they rely on that.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice meeting you too. :) No need to worry about cars here when walking - live in a very rural area. If I walk from home I usually don't even see a car for the first mile and a half. The pedometer I use is a Striiv and have used it for years! I don't need any motivation to walk - have to make myself go home. :) I've been taking a morning walk for over 30 years. We had some snow last week too. Sure hope that is the last of it.

    1. Thanks for the visit, I've added you to my blog log to make it easier to visit. I envy you not having the traffic to content with. Perhaps you can send me some of your motivation when I run low. Totally agree about hoping that's the last of the snow.

  3. Luckily for us Spring snowfall doesn't "stick around,". But bad for damaging vegetation. I would love your shrimp dinner & I too cook the same. I've been tempted to buy the Ginsberg bio.

    1. I really need to try and get back into RBG's book, thought so highly of her. Right you are about the damage to vegetation from spring snows.

  4. Oh my goodness, snow. We had it quite late this year too, but not as late as you have, we're still getting some late frosts though. It isn't often that I give up on a book but it's such a shame when you feel you have to.

    1. Right you are on the give up on a book. I did go back to it briefly, but still just wasn't enjoying it; so sent it back to the library. Who knows, I may try again later.

  5. You are dealing with three powerful, noteworthy and commendable women in these books. I hope the next RBG is somewhere on the horizon.
