A couple of months back I had a purple sweet potato that was way past its prime. As I was walking it to the bin, I spotted a paper cup that needed tossing. I picked it up and like chocolate in peanut butter (old TV ad) a marriage was made.
Two weeks sitting by the sink with an occasional splash of water and it had become root bound. I walked it out to a corner of the yard and stuck in the ground.
Tonight I dined!
Have a great week!

Part of my Mothers’ Day present was moving some landscaping stones. Each one had to be placed in the wheelbarrel and then back down in another area. I was concerned that I may strain my back, so I took special care to bend my knees, keep my back in neutral and use my glut and leg muscles to power up. It was a fabulous workout. Sure my legs and lower back muscles felt like they had been asked to do more than they were accustomed to, but what I had failed to consider was the 140+ bicep curls that I also did. Those babies cried for 3 days. I credit Zumba for the lack of soreness in my legs that I had expected. I am now motivated to work more on my upper body!
