I do not like walnuts. But I wanted some healthy snacks to eat in the afternoon at work–right around that 2pm mark when I get incredibly sleepy. I thought to myself, “Hey, nuts are good. And, more importantly, are supposed to be good for you!” So I did some research on the healthiest nuts and discovered that walnuts top the list. I’ve never liked walnuts, but right then and there I resolved to snack on them. Cashews were #3 on the healthy nut list (almonds are #2 in case you were wondering), so I bought some of those as well and made a cashew/walnut mix on which to munch. The cashews (which I do like) have helped, but I still have to fight the urge to grimace whenever I put a walnut in my mouth. Oh well. I’m making myself do it anyway. At least until I get through this bag I bought.
I found this article which, quite honestly, excited me. Apparently some kid was snapping lots of random pictures during a wedding that was being held in an old Scottish castle and managed to take a picture of what could quite possibly be a ghost. It looks like a ghost to me anyway. It made me think of the old ghost story days of the hotel. But yeah–check it out for yourself.
Lastly, I already besieged a bunch of friends via email about this, but I wanted to throw something up on my blog as well. My dad was laid off of his job. Please, please pray for my parents. He’s looking at in-state jobs as well as out-of-state ones (though they aren’t too eager to move again). Please pray that something comes along quickly. I would really appreciate it, and I know they would too.
