Food of the Week


 My husband got some raw, unpasteurized, local honey from a friend who is starting a business. I normally don’t sweeten things, but this is really good. I put just a tad (less than a teaspoon) in my tea and it has been a nice treat. I am thinking the health benefits of honey outweigh the sugar!

Activity of the Week

Not as much as I wanted, but I did get some exercise in, which made me feel good.

Sunday: 30 minute walk with a sprint thrown in at the end

Monday: 30 minute walk with the dogs

I was fighting a cold last week and I really think taking propolis helped. I took it daily and it greatly diminished the length of my cold to about 2.5-3 days for the worst of it.

Reader’s Recap

Catch up with my plan to start exercising again.

Blog School Update

I’m in Blog School with Rita over at Blog Genie and for the next six months I’ll be working really hard to make this blog the best it can possibly be. I’m really excited about this, especially since I was the recipient of one of the Fall Scholarships (for which I am extremely grateful). This week’s update: I am working on site speed! I hope you notice it is a little faster loading so far. You can check your own site speed for free here. It should load in under 2 seconds, ideally.

Everyone needs an excuse to smile!

Question of the Week

Do you consume honey or propolis?

Until the next mile marker,


  1. I need to get some of the propolis to try it….you’d think that would have occurred to me since I was right there when you bought it.

      I’m about to order more! I really think it has helped with my cold and Michael’s sinus infection. Try it!

  2. Nice loss! Your back on a good streak again 🙂

    That little tiny duck is so cute! I have a little wooden turtle about that size and it’s a tiny bobblehead too, which makes it even cuter!

      You need to post a picture of your turtle too! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Courtney! It always brightens my day.

  3. I don’t do honey but maybe should rethink… 🙂

    Yahoo for the loss!!!
