Moved a cabinet in my office, I like the look. I can still reach my window, but I can also see my calendar now. The television was on top of that cabinet, and looks good in the corner, and it is easy to glance over at it when I'm on the computer. I have other moves in mind.

After a wonderful long walk with the dogs, dinner was a portion of lamb and the last of the acorn squash reheated. Mmmmm! I have another one to bake later this week. :) They really are good. (Cut in half, scoop out seeds, put cut side down on oiled foil on baking sheet. Put in 425o oven for 1 hour 15 minutes. Enjoy!)

I bought a boneless leg of lamb at Sam's this week, a little over 4 lbs. This evening I cut it up (taking most of the fat off of the outer edges) and packaged it in 4 - 6 ounce packages and it is in the freezer. Tonight's dinner was from that work. I've been looking at and making a shift over to Dr. Andrew Wiel's "anti-inflammatory food pyramid" (link). Small portions of meat and filling up on veggies and whole grains and beans is what he recommends. I was watching Dr. Oz last week and he showed a blood test on a woman with a healthy diet after having her eat a fast food burger meal. The blood serum was literally cloudy from all of the junk fat in the food. Makes me look at the congealed fat in the pan after cooking a steak and thinking twice. And three times. I like red meat, but I'll keep my portions very small.

The news is on (and it is sweeps month) so they had an interview with a convicted burglar. He said the one best way to keep burglars away from your house (after you've left lights and a radio on) is to have a dog. "Burglars won't mess with houses with dogs." That's why I have my two pooches; their presence helps keep the house safe (after a burglary in 2005) and the by-product is the unconditional love they offer every time I come home. It's a win-win set up! (That's a doggie "high five" in that photo - Cinnamon, the pit bull, loves to give Poppy kisses. Poppy tolerates it.)
