Of Pumpkins and Krill Oil
Wow. My garden gave me 16 pumpkins this year. Definitely a record, for last year I grew just ten, though I was thrilled with that since I'd not grown pumpkins in, oh, 17 years or so. That's also the last time I made my own pumpkin puree for pies, but guess what I'll be doing again soon?
Once again I must voice my praises of krill oil. Oh. My. Goodness. How wonderful to remember what a full night's sleep feels like! How marvelous to awaken at 3:00 a.m. and feel sooo tired rather than oh-so-awake.
In the past four months I've slept better than I have the past four years. Honest. And on the rare occasion when I awaken around 2 a.m. (because most likely I ignored my conscience and ate something I ought not have) I just get up, take another krill oil--counting it as my daytime one(I take two each 24 hours)--and fall back to sleep soon.
I've still yet to find a better price than I do at VitaCost online. We buy the 300 softgel bottle (1,000 mg.'s) and they're shipped to my mailbox at the speed of light (nearly). And they're always rewarding us with some kind of reduced price offer.
So I highly recommend both krill oil and VitaCost. Not only am I sleeping better, but my memory is much-improved, too. Thank-goodness (was getting worried there for awhile). And it would improve even more if I'd get out and walk around the block like I used to kinda-daily in the burbs. Fresh air and exercise are supposed to help with the ol' memory as well. I do ramble around our pasture and meadow a bit, but that's not quite enough (I'd be too self-conscious to walk in circles and circles around each one) and Tom's been mowing the lawn more frequently (so I'm mowing less--and loving my yard and house more), not that I'm complaining about that, certainly! I just need to push myself into getting out more.
Tom is meeting with an unemployment counselor today. He's thinking perhaps he'll look into finishing his online courses from Franklin Univ. for his bachelor degree in computer science. We shall see what we shall see. :)
