Tortoises with Hangovers

They have a huge lettuce leaf hangover. After our cold weather spell where they both dug down and slept for a few days, Abner and Imogene came out to eat for the first time in almost a week. I piled a plate full of some spring mix and set it down for them. Afterwards, they looked like this-->

I think I need a lettuce feast too. All the rich food that the holidays bring has given me super huge food burn-out. I am actually craving salad! I wanted salad this morning when I woke up and I am now anxiously awaiting lunchtime so I can make one for myself. I think it will have cucumber, tomato, carrot, a little onion, and some cheese on top. Yummy! can't wait. Then off to the post office to mail off a few orders and over to the fabric shop for a few supplies. Then home for more salad!

Yes, salad sounds great right now. I look like them too, but unfortunately it was cookies, cakes, pies, cheeses, olives, wine, etc that did it to me LOL!

I need a rich foods intervention too! I think I'm going to go on another 7 day juice fast next week.

The tortoises picture is great-who knew they could be so expressive.
