Where heaven and rice meet...

I searched the term "rice" at and this was one of the photos on the first page.  The title of the photo is "Where heaven and rice meet".  I thought it was beautiful photo, and apropos as the symbolic beginning place of the rice we will purchase tomorrow (we'll post our groceries that we get).

I've had many people ask if I would be eating a bunch this weekend before the $1 a day starts....I'm not doing that for 2 reasons:

Reason #1 - I'm actually not dreading this experience.  I am looking forward to being reminded of how fortunate we are compared to much of the rest of the world.

Reason #2 - Eating a bunch this weekend would just stretch my stomach out further than it is now, which will lead to a greater feeling of hunger the first week or two of March.  : )


  1. Good luck!
    I added you to my reader. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress. Good luck! I will be praying for you guys.

  2. That is a beautiful picture!
