the sound of foghorns is truly eerie and haunting.
Fall is definitely in the air...
and it's rather dull looking outside.
To perk up my daily round
I put the furnace on,
layered a sweater over my Tee shirt,
a Lands End cozy cashmere cheery red,
dark denim skinny jeans rolled up,
red Miz Mooz flats.
(I haven't found the elusive boots yet)
Domestic days are routine in the Humble Bungalow...
water wooshing through the pipes...
the sounds of the washer and the dryer as they go through their cycles
the contented hum of domesticity.
I've tackled, purged, and arranged the spices,
I've sorted the junk drawer...
(I allow myself to have just one!)
and this drawer is big enough to satisfy my needs.
Domestics day is a great day to make soup
the ritual of chopping is calming
something chock full of veggies simmering on the stove and scenting the kitchen
and while the soup is bubbling there's time to sit and savour a cup of tea.
I recently pulled this book off my bookshelf and am re-reading snippets of it to refresh my memory
of the mainpoints
and to re-commit to the key strategies.
What attracted me to this book was it's title...
and something I remember hearing...
"You can never be too rich or too thin"
a quote by The Duchess of Windsor
( I think one can be too thin...but rich? )
The author, Jana Klauer, M.D., writes in her introduction...
"Park Avenue. These two words conjure up images of wealth, privilege, and ease.
Park Avenue is New York's grandest boulevard"
She shares with the reader a lot of information which is savvy, sensible and smart.
She is an advocate of daily exercise, eating protein, getting enough calcium, conquering food cravings, ridding the diet of ALL processed foods, and drinking 2 -3 quarts of water every day.
It is easy to follow
the recipes in the book are luxe,
I imagine a spa
might serve these tasty dishes!
What books inspire you to lead a healthier lifestyle?
Hope that you are keeping warm, snug and cozy.
