What I Learned & Enjoyed Over The Weekend

It's Monday...AGAIN.  How was your weekend?  Looking back on my weekend it was good but it was also a time of learning a few things.  And my learning continues TODAY as I have downloaded a few FREE eBooks from Cloth-Paper-Scissors!  Take a look & enjoy the Freebies!

Another thing I learned was something about my leg/ankle/foot issue.  I blogged a little bit about that here.  I ended up going to Walmart and doing the Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Test.  I found out that I have High Arches AND High Pressure.  My feet don't look any different than they have throughout the years but my father DOES have high arches and apparently it's hereditary.  So I got these custom fit insole/inserts and hope they do the trick.  It's been driving me nuts that I haven't been able to exercise the way I want to with this annoyance.  Fingers crossed these babies will work!

Tonight I am going to make this Salad Dressing!  The photo, here, is stock, not my own. is what I am going to put in it!

1 Avocado
1 Tomato
1/4 C Lemon Juice
1/4 C Water
1 T Wildtree Taco Seasoning

I suppose you could do a chunky version of this and mash everything together but I really want it smooth so I am going to use my Ninja.

I'm a HUGE Music Fan and LOVE all sorts of different kinds of music.  I thought it might be fun to showcase a few picks on occasion.  I put my Pandora on Shuffle and I have LOTS of different stations on there.  These were the first 11 songs to pop up!

Some I have been listening to a lot Ziggy Marley.  Some were wonderful flashbacks like Salt & Pepa, Rusted Root, Vanilla Ice, and Run DMC.  Others were ones I tend to go thru phases and streaks on like Rusted Root, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Moby, and Smashing Pumpkins.  And I know it's kind of nerdy but The Monkees are one of my all time FAVORITES no matter what age or era.  I'm still mourning the death of Davy Jones

So I guess what I am trying to say mishmash posts do beyond my daily life and food and blend right in with my musical tastes!  It keeps things interesting...just the way I like 'em.

I hope to do more of these posts and would love to hear your comments about my music shuffle posts.

  2. You even make your own dressing; I'm impressed.

    Have a good Blue Monday, Jennifer.

  3. Very interesting on the Dr. Scholl's test, haven't tried that yet. And the salad dressing sounds awesome, I adore simple and fast dressings.

    1. I have high hopes for it! I'm hoping it will not let me down! LOL :)

  5. Hi Jennifer, I too have high arches which are a pain literally. You need arch supports in your shoes. I think Dr. Scholl's will help you. If not, go to a foot doctor.

    I like your food and music mix. A fun post.
    xo, Jeanne
