Thoughts for the day..........
I bought a new laptop a few months ago after dropping and killing the one I was using. Fortunately our insurance came to the party and the only things I am sad about loosing are about six months worth of photos which I had neglected to back-up. I noticed there seemed to be a Kindle on this computer. I wasn't sure whether it was properly loaded so I ignored it until today. I've wanted to buy books from Amazon several times and the difference between the cost of buying a book and P & P to New Zealand compared with the a Kindle purchase finally won me over. I made a very modest purchase. I think it was less than $5.00 to buy The Smarter Science Of Slim Workbook by Jonathon Bailor. I'm glad that's all it cost because I doubt if I will ever use it but I wanted to know more about what is in his book. The good news is that it has given me confidence to buy other books for the Kindle.
Here's the link to Jonathon Bailor's Blog
One reason I have been reluctant to consider trying out the Kindle is the possibility of losing the Books if my computer crashes. I wonder if I can back up the Kindle to my external storage.
I also have a couple of books on PDF file that came from Destiny Publishing. I get the odd free book which I'm supposed to read and leave a review somewhere. I've not got around to reading any of the books until today when I read nearly a third of one of them. I like to read in bed before going to sleep. That doesn't work too well with the laptop. Another reason for neglecting to read these books is that I thought it would be too hard on my eyes but the PDF files are no strain at all.
It's several days now since I last took my prescrition for acid reflux. Tonight I need one. My own fault. I've been eating freshly baked flax meal bread. It is low in carbs but I covered the slices in butter and raspberry jam. This is a blip. It seems that my gut really is beginning to heal after six months wheat free but I still need to be careful.
How did I do?
I'm still working out how any potassium tablets I need. It seems as though I need at least two a day at present. I still haven't done very much except prepare some food and eat and read.

I am going to do the stretching exercises in my Jenny Craig book. I did them many years ago and found them easily do-able for me. My goal is to eventually stretch every day.

Has to be good. Right!
