TEAM QUESTION of the day...
If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
A Meal Planning Chef - A Private Tutor, if you will
Not forever... but just to teach me what I need to know ..
then I started to think too much and ramble on as I am wont to do.. so I deleted my ramble from the team response and plunked it over here...
I still have not figured out the which, what, when etc. of the ingredients I like in recipes I would prepare that I should be eating daily over the course of a week/month..to meet the range I am supposed to achieve.. for calories and nutrients...
Since, I still have not found the combination of things I like and therefore will eat that keeps me in all the ranges I am supposed to attain. As every day a couple items are always low, one is always high, and the rest usually in range.. Except when I try to get the lows in range then the total calories always goes over and everything goes ka-fluie.
I chose cooking because
I love yard work or I always have in the past. I don't mind sharing but would not want to give it up entirely.
and not cleaning, not because I like cleaning but...
because I just wouldn't like to have someone traversing all through my home.
and maybe because
when I was a kid my mom had someone come in to clean.. I asked my mom not to let them in my bedroom.. but in they went and broke the lamp that my deceased grandmother had given to me.. It was priceless, to me - ordinary to anyone else, and not salvageable.. nearly 70 years later.. it still breaks my heart. It was the only thing I had that she had given to me. Silly I know. I do have some things of hers.. her lapel watch is a prized possession.. but it is way to heavy to wear with the fabrics of today. I also have a pair of screw-back dangle cameo earrings that belonged to her. Oh, and her folding checker board that when folded makes a box for storing the checkers within. And her Chinese Checkers board, too.(the marbles have been lost.. maybe I will look to replace them) She died 71 years ago last October when I was 7. (The lamp got broke when I was about 12 or 13)
Well, I have spent way too much time wandering memory lane... and life goes on. Whether we are ready, or willing, or able.
Have a great weekend.. and share a smile or 2 or 3..
Life is too short to waste it on frowns.
