Silent Spring.

The weather was warm, but not quite so humid today. I didn't have to bring Bobcat in from the porch until the hottest time of the day, 3.00 PM.
I had to move some of my aloe plants from the front of the porch, as they were getting too much hot afternoon sun. They do better on the east side and the morning sun. I know they are supposed to be a desert plant, but when out in the heat they go all brown looking, and I can't sell them looking like that.

Steve made a comment on my yesterday's journal about "Silent Spring" by Rachel Carson. In 1962 it woke up everybody to the dangers of toxins in the environment. But they are making, and surrounding us with more pollutants every day.

But there are two sides to the coin:
So what is one to believe?

I mostly did housework today, the extra things like cleaning mirrors and windows. And there are a bunch here. Oh, well, someone's got to do it.

Yesterday, I had bought a bunch of Boar's Head Maple Glazed Roasted Chicken Breast at Krogers for $4.99 a lb, normally $8.99, and so I vacuum packed that into smaller packages for freezing. They run in-store specials like that every now and then, and that's when I scoop up on stuff. They even had a couple of recipe cards for it: 1) Grilled Maple Glazed Chicken Sandwich, which has thin slices of apple in it. 2) Maple Glazed Chicken Cobb Salad, which also called for some crumbled Blue Cheese, and I had bought a little tub of it on sale, too. So that is something different to eat.

I only ate a third of my slice of Key Lime Cheesecake, so I was good today.

That is what I like to do too Penny. I find someting at a good price and buy it and then break it down and fix it when I can.
