Congrats to Melissa, who was the last to post in August! Here's your snazzy blinkie:

And now we face a new month. Are we up to the challenge of chatting it up? :smileywink: Whoever is last to post just before midnight Eastern on September 30th will win!

Let's get started! :smileyhappy:

I guess I should go check the laundry. I might take about 15 mins after doing that and the dishes to read in the sunshine!

Hope you all are having a great day!!

I think I've heard that about corn syrup. Something to watch for on labels of processed foods...

Should get supper ingredients gathered soon. I don't have the steamed noodles I usually use for stir-fry and don't think we'd have time to go to the store, so I'll do the chicken and broccoli, then mashed potatoes to go with that mixture. I'm glad I just picked up frozen broccoli cuts yesterday, works perfectly!

I think I need to start another fiction selection soon, not into the short story and have only been reading the Bill Bright book a little. I guess since the short story's not that long I could just finish it first. :smileywink: Then I think I have mostly L.M. Montgomery from my mum, and I could check NetGalley for another advanced reader copy on an upcoming Christian book...

My son taught us about high fructose corn syrup.  He hasn't touched anything with it for years.  I'm surprised how many things have it!  He also doesn't eat sugar, caffeine, or hardly any carbs.  I'm not that good but wish I was.

It's just a volunteer position on Wednesday nights at church. Usually, the tasks would only be assisting the teacher in any way she needs. However, since I will likely start teaching it next year, I will be a little more involved in planning badges and things so I can see how it is done. That involves going through the book of badges, choosing what one we will be doing, getting all 4 coordinating worksheets together in the kid's binders, and figuring out corresponding crafts and snacks. I can already tell I will be much more organized. :smileywink: So far the teachers now don't really do a craft that goes along with the lesson. I will definitely google a month in advance so I can be all prepared for matching craft. :smileyhappy:

I think what is so bad about High Fructose Corn Syrup is since it is in liquid form, it can get put into more stuff that it has no business being in. If it could be monitored like regular sugar, it wouldn't be so bad. BUT, the put it in EVERYTHING!

Today is JJ's field trip to the apple orchard.  I know he will have no interest in the part of the tour that talks about making cider.  So we will probably wander around outside during that part.  But I think he will enjoy the hay ride and getting to pick an apple.

That would be a fun field trip. We have Indian summer weather here, so it would seem out of place here, though I think our apples are almost ready to pick from the Macintosh tree. Yay!

I was going to mow the lawn this morning since parts of it are long (though much is pretty much dead from lack of rain) but it's Pizza Day at school and Hubby felt bad that Tim had to settle for a pizza wrap sandwich. I'm attempting my own no-milk pizza dough and will top with lactose-free toppings. If it works, I'll deliver a slice to his classroom just before the lunch bell so that Tim can have pizza with all the other kids.

First time making the dough, so it may not be the best crust ever, but I know that Tim isn't that picky when it comes to pizza, so he won't mind.

Might still fit in the mowing later, or just get out there tomorrow morning before we take a road trip on a no-school day.
