Just a few quick things today.
1. I chose the winners for the Living Proof Live Simulcast and have notified them by email. If for some reason I don’t hear back from them then I will choose two more winners.
Is it just me or does that sound like the Miss America pageant when if the winner is unable to fulfill her duties then the first runner up has to step in?
And even if you didn’t win, it’s not too late to sign up to be a part of the simulcast from the comfort of your couch. Here’s the event page with all the information you need. You can also find out on that page if there’s a church that’s hosting it anywhere near you in case you want to venture out and be around people.
Spoken like a true introvert.
2. On a totally different note, I have loved Mrs. Meyers’ cleaning products for a long time. But I’d always bought the geranium scent or the lemon verbena. Then last week I decided to try the basil scent and my whole life changed. It is my hands down new favorite.
3. Caroline’s P.E. coaches occasionally bring in new healthy food for the kids to try. And while she never eats more than the equivalent of one cheese cube at each meal, she is an adventurous eater.
So this is how I’ve ended up buying jicama and dragon fruit and learning that breaking open a coconut is much harder than they made it look on Gilligan’s Island.
It’s also how I discovered that we both love a pomegranate. I’d never bought pomegranates before because I wasn’t really sure how to eat them even though I love to drink pomegranate juice because it makes me feel like I’m negating the effects of beef fajita nachos.
However, I soon learned that getting the seeds out of a pomegranate is a beating. You have to soak it in water and then peel off the white part and then the seeds pop and stain your countertop.
But then Mimi sent me the link to this video on an easier way to eat a pomegranate. I tried it yesterday and it totally works. I’m embarrassed to tell you how excited I was about it.
4. Wow. I just wrote five paragraphs about deseeding a pomegranate.
That feels like a low.
5. I’m leaving a week from today to head to Birmingham, AL for the DotMom Conference. It’s not too late to sign up and join us. It’s a great line up including Jen Hatmaker, Vicki Courtney and Esther Burroughs.
Oh, and Korie Robertson from Duck Dynasty. I’m a little bit beside myself about it.
5. There were so many of y’all who said such sweet things about Jen and even offered her places to stay or to bring meals and prayers. It made me love you that much more. And I asked Jen if it was okay to share the link to her blog wheres she’s detailing her journey and she said it was okay.
It’s called Pink. Pray. Love. She has handled this with so much faith and grace. Love her so much.
6. This is the time of year when the Outdoor Channel airs all of its new episodes of various hunting shows. So guess what’s on our T.V. every night until P goes to bed?
You’ve never seen so much camo or heard so much whispering in your life.
It’s not at all annoying.
7. I’ve been sitting here for twenty minutes and can’t think of what else I wanted to say. I’m taking that as a sign that I need to go to bed.
Have a great day!
