Hope you are doing well!
I am listening to the high winds and rain washing my north window. It's been a chilly day.

Hope life has been going okay for you.

"The past doesn't define you, your present does.
It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes.
Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen."

Maltodextrine huh? I hadn't heard of that. I hear so much about the addictive power of sugar, and can't even bring myself to give that up entirely. I have cut way back. Last night I had some light canned peaches for supper, and wondered if that would trigger a binge. It didn't, so that is good. But to give up artificial sweetener entirely? Gosh! What else do we have to give up? I need some sweet in my life!!! Let me know if you try it and if it helps you.

I feel so bad for those characters in the heat. So if it is over 90 degrees (EEK), which it was on Thursday (I went Wednesday), they do 15 minutes on, 45 mintues off. On a regular day they do 30 minutes on 30 minutes off. Someone told me they can wear a light vest with ice packs in them to keep cool. I can't even imagine. And Pluto has mesh under his tongue, and Goofy also does in his mouth. I think Mickey's ears are the same also. But some of those bunnies, it was horrible. Thumpers ears were open in the back to allow some air to pass, but that white rabbit and yellow rabbit were fully closed, I can not even imagine how the poor person is melting in there. They also try to keep them in the shade when they can. I did ask the yellow rabbit if he was okay and keeping cool (not that he woudl tell me no) but he said yes and then he gave me a big ole hug, kind of like "someone understands me". They were even doing the bunny hop when they first came out. Those people have to love their job and definitely EARN their money, because being in those costumes has to be just awful. They say some of them weigh about 40 pounds, eek!!

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett
