My dad's health issues

I'm still dealing with my housebound dad. His 11th mini-stroke has taken him a few steps back, and I go down and spend part of the day with him, and do lunch, a few times a week. I'm so tired, trying to keep up with everything.

Our Winter fun!

This is a pic of my granddaughter Gianna. We started a new tradition, since we really aren't big into snow activities, we fly to Florida at Christmastime and enjoy Disney World. This is "G" enjoying the tree at the wonderful Magic Kingdom. She was delighted to meet Minnie.

Our favorite winter activity is anything where it's warm! Too bad Florida was a bit cold this year when we visited.

Mom Start - U.S. Wellness Meats Giveaway

Mom Start - U.S. Wellness Meats Giveaway

Prize: U.S. Wellness Meats sampler pack (ARV $75).

Check out the Wellness Meats site here:

What makes the US Wellness meat different?

There are no added chemicals or preservatives.

US Wellness meats come from a family of farmers. John Wood is a fifth generation farmer that changed the feeding cycle of his herds. Instead of feeding them grain like it was always done, he decided to let them eat naturally. They way herds did once upon a time.

One of the key secrets of the new model? Keeping the best quality forage in front of animals on a daily basis with a rotation grazing sequence. This traditional method mimics how buffalo grazed in North America for centuries, and it is the critical difference between 21st-century grass-fed and the old 1950’s mode

They carry a large variety of natural products including different varieties of meat. Grassland Beef, Grassland Veal, Grassland Lamb, Free-Range Poultry, Grassland Bison, Candles, and Pet Food!
