My sister shared this video with me over on FB.  This is such a wonderful idea.  I know in Colorado, during apple season, you can go to most farmer’s markets and buy what we call “horse apples” for less than 1/2 the dollar amount per pound than the perfect, store ready apples.  These apples may have a blemish, or a small dent, or odd shape.  But they taste & cook exactly the same as their picture perfect kin.

As food prices jump, I would love to see a movement here in the US to do this:


“On” Days vs “Off” Days

I tell myself daily that I have come a long way since my stroke almost 2 1/2 years ago.  I also tell myself that it could have been A LOT worse.

Still, when I have those “off” days, it’s tough to deal with.  Since they aren’t as frequent as they used to be, they seem harder to deal with when they do occur.  Still, I try to stay positive to my continued progress.
