IF MY DAY COULD SPEAK THIS IS WHAT IT WOULD SOUND LIKE.

Since this pandemic and accompanying isolation occurred I have a difficult time remembering what day of the week it is. Back in my old normal, I had events on different days of the week which kept my days in check. Now when I actually remember it is Tuesday, I follow Annie at Tuesday 4. Each week she posts 4 questions, and each week it gives me food for thought.
This week let's talk about books and TV programs you enjoy.
1. Are you enjoying a book right now and would you tell us about it? I am reading 3 books right now but I am enjoying one of them. I subscribe to Kindle Unlimited and it was one I found there. From the reviews I thought it would be much better than it is but I have this self inflicted rule that once I start a book I have to finish it. So I am currently muddling through Magical Midnight Madness by K.F. Breene. I am also reading a Max Lucado book, And The Angels Were Silent, and well as The Vatican Pimpernel By Brian Fleming. All my life I have been a book juggler.

Each week I try and capture the joys for the week. Some weeks there are more joys than others, and some weeks the universe resets your opinions about what is truly joyful. The latter part of the 12th week of 2021 did just that.
Friday: I forgot to record this on Friday so I was having to rely on my memory for whatever joys there were during the day. Other than making substantial headway sorting through the accumulations from the lake and Mom's house the day was pretty lackluster. But then came the evening when we went to Costco. This is a sad joy but it really did bring me some serious happiness. The Keto "ice cream" bars were in stock. I like having them in the freezer for an occasional sweet treat without the carbs found in the really good stuff. Later we bought some take-out and settled in for the evening television watch party.
Saturday: TheHub went to work early and I messed around the house doing odd chores until about 3. DIL2 and Son2 came over to watch the basketball tournament here. Bama played Iona a very tight game and barely squeaked by to win. Roll Tide! Then we watched whoever played the next game. I don't even remember who it was but someone won! And though we did not get to watch it, Alabama's gymnastics team won the SEC championship!

*I really do like Flogging Molly and listen to them fairly often, but this particular song is a little harsh.

The keto diet is a weird thing and has many foods that you normally associate with a healthy diet totally verboten. Like carrots, beans, peas, and just about any fruit besides berries, but it is seriously in favor of most vegetables so I try to eat a lot of vegetables. In fact, most days that is all I eat for lunch and try to have salad or slaw with every night. Even if I have something most people call potatoes for dinner, it is actually transformed cauliflower.

Friday: The day was gorgeous! It was just perfect weather and even though pollen was beginning to drift down from the trees, it was still not so bad that we couldn't have the house open.
* There is a codicil that would make me move. If we got a phone call out of the blue from someone who said they wanted our house as is and offered a cool million, I could be out in two weeks. But the chances of that happening are about the same as me being a size 8 by summer.

This is my traditional St Patrick's Day post. I forgot it until just a few minutes ago, but it is still St. Pat's in some time zones. It is a real television news clip from Mobile, Alabama. I just want the rest of you out there to know you cannot laugh at us more than we laugh at ourselves.
Now who wants to go Leprechaun hunting?

I am currently doing that keto thing, but did not want to miss out on the joys of pi day. If nothing else I am patriotic and will observe national holidays, but I also did not want to spend the time (or carbs) to make a keto pie crust. Looking through all the keto pie recipes I found, this one popped up. I am not going to post the recipe here since anyone who is interested can click and see it for themselves. Instead this is simply a recipe review and what I will do differently next time.

I follow Annie at Tuesday 4. Every week there is a theme with 4 questions pertaining to it. They either make me reflect on my attitudes, future desires, or memories of the past. This week takes me backwards time to remember trips we have taken. Hop on over there and join in the fun.

I am still trying to use what I have on hand vs. going to the store for anything but essentials. I am giving myself a little grace this month and if I see something for a decent price that I really want, I will go ahead and buy it guilt free. The same will happen for anything I see that is a true stock up price.
