How Sugar-Strict Should You Be?

Great read. It’s all about baby steps!

my sister's pantry

I recently had a conversation with a colleague about her ‘crazy’ sister-in-law who won’t let her kids (or the visiting kids) have a soda.  My colleague thought this was a little over the top and that there was nothing wrong with having a soda now and then.  While I confess that I have on occasion let my son have a soda, usually at a birthday party or other celebration hosted by others, I did have an answer for her and came to the defense of the unseen crazy sister-in-law (takes one to know one, right?).

The Sister-in-law’s defense your honor is a matter of the bar.  Not the legal bar exam to become a lawyer, but the bar which is a standard or expectation to which we, or the foods we put in our mouths, all must rise.  When someone raises the bar then they are increasing the expectations.

Celebrating Derby and Supporting a Little Bit of Local History

I love Derby! It was my favorite time of year – the parties, the horses, the Mint Juleps, the hats!! The hats were my favorite part. Every year I got a new hat and maybe a new outfit to go with the hat. I love hats!!!

However, a few years ago things changed as they do and I stopped celebrating. This year I took back control and when a friend posted about a Thunder Over Louisville event to kick off the Derby season I immediately signed up!! The fact the event benefited a local historical property peaked my interest also. I even wrangled some of my family members to join me.

I’m not sure how long the Thomas Edison House  has held these Thunder parties, but we had a very good time. There was food, good conversation, a plane show and, of course, the BEST fireworks show ever! I also enjoyed catching up with a friendThe Blue Angels I had not seen in 30 years and getting to know a little local history about a Edison.

This morning while reading the exhibits list in the Arts section of my Sunday paper and thinking about my visit last night, I realized that I have not been taking advantage of all this city has to offer. So I cajoled my daughter to join me in seeing as many of the exhibits as we can. So our adventure continues! I hope you will join me in visiting your local exhibits and historical homes. You never know what you will find!

Enjoy!
