Write your own core sentence and list five questions.

My core sentence:

My five questions:

When did I finish?

When did I start?

What color is it?

How does it feel?

Where was I?

Here are the answers to my five questions:


When did I finish?  This morning

When did I start? Earlier this month

What color is it? honey-colored

How does it feel? warm and soft

Where was I? The dentist office



And now, the sentence building...

(The newest part is underlined.)

Just this morning I finished knitting a scarf.

Just this morning I finished knitting a scarf I had started earlier this month.

Just this morning I finished knitting a honey-colored scarf I had started earlier this month.

I love the texture on that scarf!
A question for you...I found your post last night about changing your eating habits. That was a while back, but I'm wondering if it is still working (long term). I love the idea, but can't truly imagine giving up all processed foods. I mostly don't know what I'd give the family for snacks.
I think I'm going to get myself a copy of Nourishing Traditions.

Hey Wendi- I don't know your email :(

Yes we still eat healthy but things like vacation/traveling really throw it off and it is hard to get back in the groove.

I must say that the process can be overwhelming and changing just one or two things every month or so it probably best for long term commitment.

If you have a Trader Joe's near you... it is an easy way to step-down from processed food since their prepared foods aren't as chemical filled.

The biggest stumbling block (I find) to eating healthy is the planning involved.

But it is totally worth the effort and our family's health has benefited dramatically from the switch.

I hope that answers your question and if you have more questions, please feel free to email!
