This and that, and the other thing... :-)))

Toy Dump Truck, my husband made, for a silent auction.  For the annual Rotary Scholarship Foundation Brunch.  All made from pieces of various woods, he had left over, from previous wood working projects.

What a Full Harvest Moon we had, hu???????  :-)

I've been doing less Cozy Mystery book reading...  And more books on nutrition and How To Eat And Live.  These above, are a couple of them.

But my favorite is "The French Don't Diet Plan."  Basically it says to: 

*Eat real food.  

*Do not eat processed foods.  

*Take time to enjoy your meals, so you won't overeat.  

*Have a glass of wine.  

*Stay active.  

*Slow our hectic American lifestyle down enough, to enjoy your life.


Examples of real food.  Organic fruit.  Real cream.  (See, no long table of contents on any of those things...)

Home made Eggplant Parm.

Whatcha' think...????????????

Love the wooden truck! My husband also does woodworking, but he's never gone for making small items (too fussy for him I think). Even though I brought home a few patterns of really nice toys that he could make for our own kids (doll stroller & chairs), he refused. Oh well. Like your idea of simpler, healthier eating. Meals don't have to be complicated to be delicious & good for you. Wendy

Great job your husband did on the truck. Like the French don't diet book, it sounds like me!
