It feels like I just finished last night’s posts, and here I am again.
It feels like I just got out of school, and yet here it is, nearly August.
Such is life.
And I left you hanging on such important things last night – how cruel of me to just touch upon calcium supplements potentially being bad for your heart.
And then of course, there’s riding the ponies for their potentially first time.
Of course, by riding I mean “sitting on and taking a couple of steps forward,” but it was still a proud moment. Georgie we’d seen attempted to be ridden, but she really didn’t want to have any part in it – and Maya was sold to us as unsold, though since her history is unknown there’s a chance she’s been ridden. Regardless – they both acted when they came that if they had been trained, they hadn’t had a touch-up in a good couple of years.
That said, a horse that has pretty good groundwork and temperament and doesn’t care for a saddle or saddle pad on their back, will probably take to a rider okay, too. I just hopped on walked, whoah’d, and hopped off – and showered them in praise.
Georgie is quickly earning my affection. She is very sweet now, not so standoffish or shy.
And then, of course – there’s the more serious of the two situations. It’s still a new study and much more is being researched, but there was one test done involving placebos and real calcium pills. The calcium group had a 30% greater chance of having a heart attack. It mentioned it being not statistically significant – however to me, 30% sounds like a lot, at least when I can get my calcium in natural form.
However, that’s not possible for everyone, so hopefully more studies will prove it wrong! Read more here.
I’m glad everyone enjoyed my pantry post 🙂 You know how sometimes, you get this idea in your head that seems really cool, but then once you do it, you’re wondering if it’s as cool as you initially though?
Yeah, that was sorta me, halfway through. But I loved reading everyone’s feedback as to what you all have for pantry staples, too 🙂
Crappy romaine. Yes. Really, really, poopy romaine. I’m in such a lunch funk lately. last night I wasn’t feeling a sandwich, and knew I had the last of a head of romaine to use, and a salad seemed perfect. Well, it was perfect – except that romaine.
Although I will say, the veg, beanballs, and hummus were spectacular.
If you’ve never had Cedar’s hummus, you don’t know what you’re missing.
I needed a reminder as to why I love this bread so much, and I think this did it. And don’t be surprised if you see those beans again soon.
So. Dang. Good.
Now that I think of it – looks like I had the “last of” a lot of things today. Looks like I’ll be cooking this weekend!
Other random musings of the day:
- Is there really a point for you to wear a belt, Mr. Dude-Guy, if you’re going to wear it loose enough so that you still have to hold up your pants going down stairs?
- I hope you step in your dog’s poop on your lawn, Mr. Dog-Walker, for not picking up after your pooch in our work driveway.
- No, Mrs. Light-Bulb Lady, I am not selling you a doozy bulb, and no, it’s not over priced. It’s actually really cheap. And no, not because it’s a doozy. So stop interrupting me. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
- Why yes, yes a 16×20 print is rather large, but that’s what you asked for, so don’t make it my problem.
- Thank you, Mrs. Happy Lady, for being all cheery this morning and once again this evening. You were the first smiling face I helped and the last, and it started and ended my workday on the perfect note. I just love when people are pleasant to deal with.
- No, Mr. Teddie-Pants, walking a couple twenty meter circles bareback is not utterly exhausting and enough to ruin your “day off,” and if you would stop chewing my reins I would sincerely appreciate it. I’ll even give you cookies. P.S. I love you anyway.
