What I’m Reading


What a busy week this was.  Between work and trying to figure out new ways to do my 2 hour commute I feel like I was run over by a truck… Good news I wasn’t!!!!!!!  In addition, Camelot is also in serious need of a pain job and we (Mr. Camelot and I) have been trying to get to the three front rooms for the past month.  We finally finished one room and we’re so happy with how it came out.  Go on over to the Home page and check out some of the pictures.

Finally having some time to sit and read is a welcomed distraction.  Here are the links to what I really enjoyed this week:

No Kids for Me Thanks – Great article in the New York Times about questions women who choose to not have children face.  I read it and I thought that it could apply to women who for other reasons have no children.

How the Shape of Your Face Affects How You’re Perceived at Work – It’s a good article but I don’t think accurate.

The Science of Setting Goals – I read this one as I was trying to set goals for myself at work.  It made a whole lot of sense to me.  Setting my goals and focosing on the outcome was not working for me.  I think that by focusing on the process of achieving that goal makes the “trip” a whole lot more fun and who knows, maybe a lot more educational as well.  It may be the kick in the behind that I need to get things moving, finally.  (I’ll keep you posted).

11 Ways to Keep Your Home A Cancer Free Zone – This week I found a great website.  I was going to say a new website/blog but I am sure it’s not so new.  I may be the one who is late to the party…. as usual.   I am constantly trying to keep Camelot clean and healthy and I’m always getting frustrated because I feel that I spend most of my free time (not much as it is) trying to re-clean and re_healthify (I made up this word).

Why are men Afraid of Going Vegan – I know it’s weird but it’s true.  How many of us know of a couple where the woman is vegetarian or vegan and husband is a full fledge meat eater?  Yep…. that would be and Mr. Camelot.  I’m not proud of it but I’m not here to change him.  All I keep hoping is that at some point he will see that he’s better off on this side of the fence.  In the meantime, I have to say that he is very supportive and tastes everything I make.


Great Animal Quotes and Photos

I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes here as well as some amazing photos of beautiful animals from around the internet.  I apologize because I don’t always know who the photographer is.  If I know the name I will post it as a caption on the picture if there is no name and you know who the photographer is, please drop me a note and let me know and I will make sure credit is given to the artist.  These are beautiful pictures for which I take no credit.


“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” – Thomas Edison


“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.” – Charles Darwin


“One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.


“If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.”- Albert Einstein


All the above quotes and photos were originally posted in ChooseVeg.com.

Reading on the Internet


I really enjoy getting up on Sunday mornings, grabbing cup of coffee or tea and sit on the couch with my iPad or computer and just read whatever is on my feed.  This week there were quite a few interesting articles and here are a few which I found most interesting:

Just a few articles to help you slow down this morning.

Opening Soon — And then Not

UnknownYou can imagine how happy I was when one of my friends on Facebook posted that Whole Foods Market was about to open in Morristown, New Jersey.  Since I moved to Camelot I have had to drive half an hour out of my way to get my fix of organic fresh fruits and vegetables.  It’s not as if I have not given the places around here the opportunity to impress me and in the Summer I am surrounded by farms where I do go for my produce, but in the Winter … well, let’s just say I’m not impressed with quality.

I immediately friended them and waited for the opening date to be posted.  I know exactly where it’s going to open so I know exactly where I’m going.  It’s still a few miles away — Ohhh how I wish they would open in my area.  Come to think of it?  Hey Whole Foods fairies, if you’re reading this can you please open a store in the Roxbury area?  Well, while I’m asking how about a store with one of the whole body boutiques?  That would be AWESOME.

Anyway……. I kept checking and finally there was a date.  Well, sort of a date.  It said “Coming in April 2015.”  Yay!!!!!!!!

April is gone and the website still says “Coming in April 2015.”  Are they opened?  I have no real reason to go into Morristown nor do I have the time right now unless I have a reason to head over there so it would be nice to know.  Please Whole Foods, please, please….. Will you open already?

For now I have these pictures to drool over and be envious of all of you who have a Whole Foods near you.
