Sowing The Seeds....

I grow my own.  Yep.  Sprouts.  I've always loved sprouts on sandwiches, wraps, salads, but since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, I've become especially fond of broccoli sprouts.  Apparently, the broccoli sprout does have some cancer fighting properties.  And tastes good too. I found these packaged "Salad Blend" sprouts next to the Broccoli Sprouts in the produce section of the store...tried em on a sandwich & just totally fell in love with them. But it's really hit or miss findin these sprouts.  So some wonderful online friends told me I should just grow my own.  Sprouts. ;) 

Hmmmmmm....I don't grow nuttin.  I even kill silk plants.  But, I researched online & everything I read said it's fun & easy to grow your own sprouts.  So I ordered a sprouter & the seeds & successfully grew my own Salad Blend of Broccoli, Radish & Clover Sprouts.  I couldn't believe it.  They actually came out great.

Next time I'm gonna grow the "Sandwich Blend" which is just the Broccoli & the Radish together.  Then also a batch of just Broccoli.

It really is fun & easy! And from seed to eatin, it only takes bout 5 - 6 days.  This is why I also think it would be a fun activity for kids.  Because you have to "deal" with your sprouts twice a day, & every time you deal with them, they're different, bigger, almost growin right before your eyes.

Anyway, if'n yer interested, here's where I got everything I needed to grown my own.  Sprouts.  LOL.  Sprout People.  And no, I'm not gettin anything for sharin this info here.  These wonderful sprout folks don't even know I exist.  I just love their product & the sprouts keep comin out so great. 

In other news....yesterday I got an eyeful outside my window.  The birds n the bees kinda eyeful.  Two little birdies were like, totally doin it, (yes, IT) right there in our flowerbed.  All out in the open & everything.  I was all like "Aaaack, Biiiiiiiiiirrrrdddsssss!! Get a NEST!" LMAO!  Aaahhh spring.  Tis the season. 
They were just sowin the seeds of luuuuuuv

*Corniness disclaimer:  It is well known by those who have known me for more than a year, that I do tend to the cheesy & sometimes full on corniness.  Thank you for not unsubscribing.  LOL.

Runnin On Empty...

Ok, well this wasn't supposed to be the post to come out when I told my Facebook "likers" (all less than 100 of them lol ;) ) that a New Blog Post was comin soon, but it is a new blog post nonetheless.  Acutally, that day I did do a little "in between post", but eh... The post I had in mind will be out in a couple of days. ..So please stay tuned.

Anyway, so to catch up real quick...all oncology appointments are done for the next six months.  And all the doctors say I'm doin so good.  So that's a relief.  Hopefully I can successfully put my cancer crap away until September when we'll do it all again, complete with a mammo. 

OMG what a shitty week we've had...bombings at the Boston Marathon...And it appears the whole point of the bombs was to cause human death, injury, disfigurement & suffering. What the fuck is wrong with people?!  (As I type this, the second suspect is "down"...first was killed earlier today.)  Then a pregnant woman was murdered, a car chase, arrests in the Kaufman County murders, & then the tragic (apparent accidental) explosion of the Fertilizer Plant in West, TX, which leveled the town & rattled homes up to 50 miles away. I felt it. O felt it.  He came flyin down the stairs all like "WTF was that?!?!" I thought it was another earthquake.  But it was the explosion. 

All week the images coming across the television & the internet are just so awful.  Too graphic.  Too much for me.  And it makes me think.  About stuff.  Everything.  Again, another opportunity to assess my life.  (As if breast cancer wasn't opportunity enough, right?)

And I'm finding that tryin to steer life in any certain direction is futile at the mo.  Some days I think I know what & who I want need in my life.  And who I don't.  And there are some who have made that choice for me.  And that's fine. Sometimes I feel like a walkin reminder to some that a near perfect, most lovely life can become chaos/scary/short/over in an instant.

* "I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels. I look around for the friends that I used to turn to, to pull me through. Looking into their eyes I see them running too..."

Anyway...yeah....kinda feel like we're runnin on empty a bit.  But this time of year I probably always feel like that. 

I need a vacation. 

I need to make some changes. 

* "I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on.
Running on, running on empty. Running on, running blind..."*

Runnin blind....yeah.
