Welcome to the weekend and a mish mash post!
I’m looking forward to a fun-filled Saturday with new blogging buddies at Fitbloggin’ Local – Nashville edition and a couple days away from home. Thanks to my vast collection of gift cards, this will likely be the least expensive weekend trip I’ve ever taken that didn’t involve a campground or staying in someone else’s home. Woo-hoo!
Cleaning up a few loose ends before I go…
They Got Me
I picked up two mosquito bites on the very day I heard this: West Nile Virus Detected in Several ZIP Codes. Naturally, one of those ZIPs is mine, but I never heard the mosquito spray trucks last night. I hope they didn’t miss my cove! So far, I’m ignoring the slight pain in my neck and resisting the urge to take my temperature every 15 minutes, but if I start feeling queasy all bets are off.
Yeah, But Will I Be Able to Leap Tall Buildings?
TCBY, my go-to indulgence during my loss phase and beyond, announced they’ll be offering “Super Fro-Yo“. According to the company, the industry standards for this new super category are as follows:
* Must have a minimum of three grams of Fiber
* Must have a minimum of four grams of Protein
* Must have a minimum of seven types of Probiotics
* Must meet a minimum of 20% DV of Vitamin D
* Must meet a minimum of 20% DV of Calcium
The company says their yogurt meets the standard (good thing since they invented it) and does a bunch of other stuff besides. I have no way of knowing what percentage of the claims are true, but I’m not going to base my personal fitness plan on fro-yo, high test or regular. I will, however, enjoy feeling an itsy bitsy smug when I indulge.
Wish I’d Thought of It First
Speaking of frozen decadence, have you seen that annoying infomercial for the yonana machine? It’s a machine that will turn ordinary bananas into a frozen treat right before your very eyes! Apparently the people who are buying it don’t know they can get the same thing with some frozen bananas and the food processor or blender they already have in their cupboard.
No, that’s not ALL I’ve harvested. That was just last week’s yield. I picked another two tomatoes of a similar size this week. (No cucumbers.) I’m hoping this is the proverbial lull before the storm and I that I am soon begging the neighbors to take some of my abundant harvest off my green-thumbed hands. #doubtit
And on that pitiful note, I should hit the road. Wishing you all a happy weekend!
