Two resolutions started!!

1. I've already had a pint of water this morning. That's a pint more than I would have had by now. At work, I start my day with a diet Dr. Pepper in my big, plastic XYZ Company summer festival mug filled with the best second best chewing ice ever (best ever being Sonic, duh). On any given day, I'll repeat that once or twice. But I'm home today, and I'm terrible at staying hydrated when I'm home. I'm especially bad at drinking plain water. I love Crystal Light, but water's better for the body. I may eventually have to consider whether the flavoring will prompt me to get more hydration, but for now, I'll try to stick with water. After my work-day-only chemical fizz-bomb, that is.

2. Adding blogs with which I'd like to keep up to my feed reader. I'm a big out-of-sight, out-of-mind person, so if a blog isn't on my feed reader, I can 99.999999% guarantee that I'll forget about it for months at a time. I added about 15 blogs to my feed yesterday, and another one so far today. I should also remove the ones who haven't updated in ages, but they're not causing any harm just being there, so maybe I'll just let them be. I'm also going to try to follow a greater number of local people on Twitter and online in general. And not just follow, but actually interact. Even if means me making the first move, about which I'm just awful. Hope it doesn't make me seem too stalkerish, but I'd like to get to know this city and its people better than I do. We know far too little about the city and far too few people for having been here almost 4 years.

Hi Kat,
I saw your great photo of Russian Potatoes and Ramps on Flickr and would like to know if you also have the recipe. I'm editing a new ramps cookbook and gathering recipes and photos from chefs and food bloggers, etc.

If you'd like to join us, let me know. Cathyd@stlynnspress.com.
