When life hands you grapefruit…


When life hands you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade.  Well, if life hands you grapefruit (or a laundry basket full), just eat them, or freeze them, or share them, or peel and refrigerate them!  If you don’t like grapefruit you’re missing out.  If you don’t like grapefruit and have a full-grown tree in your backyard, learn to like it! Grapefruits are full of vitamin C and calcium.  For more benefits, click here

Today was the day to cut the grapefruit tree back, remove dead twigs and take down all the fruit that’s left.  There was A LOT of fruit left.  I wonder what I’m having for breakfast the next few days weeks months??

I didn’t bake anything today but did have a delicious breakfast…. consisting of a mini pumpkin cheesecake cup, tall skinny vanilla latte, and catching up on some good reading. 🙂  I love reading at Starbucks.  It makes me feel so studious and sophisticated to  read a novel a sip on my latte (BIG nerd here!)

Church this morning was amazing (as usual) and centered around OneHope, a mission driven organization dedicated to sharing God’s word with every child around the world.  It’s so great the best feeling in the world to be a part of a church whose focus is to reach others and share the gospel!!  I. am. blessed.

The weather this afternoon was wonderful!  Mid-sixties with a slight breeze and sunny as can be.  So I decided to go for a run and bring along a little running buddy.  Here’s how the run went:

0.2 miles- bathroom break; 0.5 miles – people break; 1 mile – no reason break; 1.78 mile – refusal to run; 2 miles… <see below>


The run was unsuccessful but I did learn some valuable lessons:

  1. Some dogs are sprinters, others are distance runners.
  2. Puppies get distracted easily.
  3. Don’t forget the poop bags.
  4. Dogs need to train too.  Rome wasn’t built in a day.
  5. Cassie (me) and Tiny (dog) will stop for frozen yogurt and grass, respectively, anytime.

I had a GREAT weekend and now ready to tackle the hectic week that awaits.

Now I’m trying to imagine what I would do if I was in the Super Bowl dome and the lights went out!  What would you do??
