* I went to my quarterly dental cleaning
in San Antonio today (or so I thought). I got there and my hygienist said they didn't schedule me for enough time - so she can't do it. Argh!! I re-scheduled for the Tuesday after next. Not a happy camper, but it's not like I traveled to Austin and paid for parking.....
* I did make the trip kind of worth it by doing my quarterly Sun Harvest Farms
shopping. I always come away with sticker shock, but I do get lots of stuff I can't get in New Braunfels: Ecover products (I use the dish soap and laundry detergent), Hemp Protein powder, nuts (raw almonds were on sale), grains (oats, red lentils), and bread baking stuff (vital wheat gluten, rice & rye flour - they had organic stone ground whole wheat flour for $1.99 a pound!!! This is another justification for buying a grain mill damnit).
* I got gasoline
in San Antonio today - $3.59 a gallon which is 10 cents a gallon cheaper than New Braunfels. Why didn't anyone put the cents symbol on the keyboard?
* Some people who have been with my journal a long time might remember when I began my experiment with the Bach Remedies
Mimulus and Wild Oat. I'd had good luck with the Rescue Remedy in the past - so I thought I'd give it a go. I think Mimulus might have had some effect on me - the Wild Oat, not so much that I noticed....though I could be wrong. I am done with both bottles, and decided I'd move on to something else - so while at Sun Harvest, picked up the Bach Remedy Larch. Larch
is supposed to help instill a sense of self-esteem when you feel inferior, fear failure, or lack self-confidence. I know all of you are probably wondering why in the world I would choose that one..... :-)
* I'm converting my 300 cd collection to digital
. Has anyone done this? How do you keep your files? I was planning on keeping them on my pc, but I'd just started and I'd accumulated over 10 gigabytes of files. My pc hard drive is 50gb and 30 of that is free - so no way all my music would fit. Right now I'm transferring the files to data cd's until I can figure out how to do it. My plan was to have a big jukebox on the hard-drive - but doesn't look like that's going to happen.
* Tonight the season finale of American Idol
begins. Looking forward to the performances. It could be anyone's guess. www.votefortheworst.com
is telling their following to vote for David Archuletta which kind of surprises me. I would have thought he would be the favorite. I've been a David Cook fan most of the season, but I always vote depending on the individual shows performances. I loved Archuletta the most when he sang Angel - gave me goosebumps. Tomorrow's results show is 2 hours, but I think it's 7-9 not 8-10 so I won't get to see it live. Anyway - in 2 separate posts I'm going to put up my favorite performances from each. They are both pretty talented.
