Friday Blog Highlight

This weeks blog highlight is from the beauty at Food Babe.  Her blog is truly inspirational and full of fantastic food recipes.  You can see her transformation in her about section of her blog. Vani Hari has a story that many can relate to.  She has come along way from the picture below- she now does public speaking on health and nutrition and has written a cookbook. 
She has written a blog post on breads- you can see that here.  In the post she refers to the best breads to eat. After my cleanse I will revisit that post.
This is a typical recipe on her site. Body Slimming Kale Soup is delicious!  Look for more of her wonderful recipes on her blog.

Let me know what you think.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It's time to complete the autumn cleanse!

It’s time for cleansing again! 

Each year, each change of season, Ann Louise Gittleman (M.S. , C.N.S.) suggests we cleanse your bodies of impurities to get ready for the new season. Gittleman believes that women should start fresh with a clean slate, cleansing our way to beauty with a clear-cut detox diet plan designed in harmony with nature’s seasons. She believes the first step toward a healthier, more radiant you, begins with a detox. 

 A little about the Gittleman Detox Program:

Let's catch up!

Hi Friends!  Thanks for allowing me time yesterday.

This weekend we were busy. On Saturday we were riding the Tour de Troit.  It was a glorious ride- warm weather, sun shining, and lots and lots of riders- 10,000 riders in all! 

View of Detroit from Belle Isle.  The Tour de Troit is a SAG supported ride of 26 miles with police escort.  We rode along the Detroit River, over the bridge to Belle Isle, and rode down many city streets as we took over Motown on bikes.

Hi Friends.  I am sorry I missed posting on Friday but I had a funeral to attend and it is very difficult to post while I am so sad.  My friend has passed and now I miss her greatly.  I just saw her at Olivia's wedding and we had such fun in the photo booth.  We were the Muskee Moms and we were very proud of our titles.  Diane is the beautiful blonde with the large green glasses- always ready to have fun and laugh.  Liver cancer took hold of her and would not let go.

I'll check in tomorrow.

New non-fiction books

As many of you know, I try to alternate fiction and non-fiction books.  I am always looking for new ways to stimulate my mind and not get caught up in the fiction world.  Not that a really good fiction book can't be stimulating, but if I didn't restrict myself- that would be all I would read!

Today we will talk about non-fiction books !

Monday Mash-Up

Happy Monday!  

I can't believe it's been 16 years since 9-11.  I remember I was taking a class of 9th grade English students on a tour of the library.  We were discussing the location of the fiction materials and nonfiction materials. I just began my discussion on the rules of the library when suddenly a student yelled out that something was happening on the big television screen that was on mute in the library.  We turned to see what he was talking about and were all stunned as our voices fell silent. Shortly thereafter, the Principal was on the PA system telling us what was happening and that we were to stay in our classrooms until he told us differently.  The 9th-grade English students sat down and quietly began staring at the TV.  They were with me for 3-full hours before the Principal said it was OK to change classrooms.  It was a terrible day and one that I will always remember. It was my first class visit as the new Librarian.

Friday Blog Highlight

Meet Mel Larson! She is the blogger behind Larson Lingo.  She is a mom of three, a middle school math teacher, a creator of invitations (she has her own Etsy store) and a real interesting person.  I love reading about her family and her classroom.  She recently posted a picture of her classroom highlighting a bulletin board which focuses on kindness in the classroom-I'm all about that.  Her blog posts of her children's birthday parties are entertaining and she has great ideas in helping make their parties fun and colorful!

I love the use of dump trucks to display candies and snacks.  Mel is very creative and appears to put lots of thought into the themed parties she throws!
