Welcome my friends. I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living. It’s a step in the right direction for sure. I hope you come along for the ride. Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share. Hope you enjoy. Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤
Week of 03/11-03/17/2018 – Week 10
“Dear Journal – Do you ever feel like time is slipping away. You look in the mirror one day and you love your curly hair and your long legs. You look again and your hair is thinning and those once long giraffe legs now resemble a short buffalo? LOL – okay nothing that drastic but you get the meaning. Life is short. We talked about celebrities aging today… and then realized that we were also aging. We still act like kids young at heart while our bodies get older every day. What once we thought would never happen to us when our grandparents couldn’t get up as fast or walk as far has now hit us… no full force yet but knocking on the door for short visits. We say it all of the time – life is short. So what do we do? Live it up every.single.day as if it is the last. Because you never know – tomorrow is not a given 🙂 ”

This week the hub unit was craving homemade fried shrimp and his beloved tater tots. I use to limit these meals because of the deep frying and I still do. But, I wanted to see what the air fryer could do for my hub’s favorite meal. I bought fresh shrimp, deveined them and slightly pounded them giving them a ‘flat’ appearance. I then battered the shrimp with a light coating of egg mixture and seasoned flour. I placed them in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Have way, I turned them and added the tater tots. They came out beautifully! Lightly tanned on the outside, crunchy and so juicy on the inside.

Okay maybe not in the house but close enough – snorts with piggy laughter. My boy Bashful has been hanging out in Florida these past couple of months with Ellis, Allie and Raz having a blast in the sun. Well guess what?
Today is Bashful’s birthday!!
You must jump over and visit Ellis, Allie and Raz and see the birthday party they are throwing Bashful. It’s a hoot!!

This morning after my breakfast of piggy chow and Cheerios I was reading the newspaper… You know catching up on the current events. While reading the paper, I had a cup of coffee that looked kind of like this. That started me thinking. Wouldn’t you love to go to your neighborhood coffee shop and order a cup of joe like this? Wouldn’t it make you smile? You would think of me, wouldn’t you? It takes a very talented barista to pull this off and make coffee look this good. Maybe Starbucks needs to add it to their menu. Mom would definitely order it.
Having this cup of coffee made me think of the different changes in the world. What if… Let me stop laughing… What if the roles were reversed and mommy stayed at home and I went to her worky place? I think being a pig I could fit right into the mix. It might work. Let’s really think about it shall we.
Mommys computer has dual monitors. I’m not sure what that actually means but it sounds exciting. Mom says she types a lot all day long and plays with numbers. Now I can’t type the 100 plus words a minute that she does cause you know she has 10 fingers and I only have 2 hooves but I can try. And playing with numbers, well I’m not so good at that but it should be interesting in payroll and monthly STATs that she does. Ok well maybe going to work wouldn’t be a good idea.
Then I started thinking about the animal store called Petco. Have you been there? They have a cat and dog buffet bar that the humans can fix for them. Petco, I have a complaint with that. Why can’t you make a piggy buffet bar? Just saying.
