If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?
And if I stop blogging.....?
I am still around, just not finding the energy for anything, and steadily falling behind on your fine blogs. Sadly, I have nothing to write about, and that looks set to continue with me in this holding pattern...to get out of here...
Plus it's that dead time of year where it's holding its breath between the new year and the start of spring, after which everyone comes out of the woodwork.
I know, I need to pull my socks up and write some of those interesting research-oriented posts you've been waiting for so patiently.
I have started using agave nectar in my tea. I can't stop sweetening my tea because it's disgusting otherwise. You know how drinking pure hot water strips the throat and makes it kind of puckery? It is not a nice feeling at all, so I add sweetness to avoid it and enhance the flavour of the tea.
I'd been on brown sugar for the past 5 years, after feeling guilty about, and subsequently going off, refined white sugar. I moved to cane sugar and it got steadily darker to the point where I am now using fairtrade organic demerara.
But sugar is sugar and what I like about agave is I get the sweetness without the glycemic index, no insulin involved, no sugar highs or lows. Also, it has none of the aftertaste of other sugar substitutes. Tis all about getting older, and thinking about what goes into the body, isn't it?
Today at work we all got new LCD screens! My desk is suddenly spacious.
And tomorrow I finally get an ID photo card, so no more signing in on silly paper visitor slips at the front desk. This comes 5 months from the beginning and 6 months from the end. Ha!
Nite nite all
