I’m still having a hard time finding the energy to write a post. I’m doing okay- it’s mostly because I am feverishly researching all the things my doctors want me to add to my arsenal (methylfolate, methylB12, carnitine, Zyrtec, Zantac, Cromolyn, Baclofen, Valium, Prednisone, Medibulk), as well as what I want to add (CoQ10, D-ribose, bread, cheese, Toblerones :-)).
So, my precious few computer hours are used up on research, emails, doctors, insurance, bills, and more research.
But, if you would so indulge me, I can post some photos of the things going on in my life (of course, with my fun anonymizing effects).
A visit from Baby A. and her Mama….
… my friend, Z.! (and that’s my “little” dog)
This photo was a BIG DEAL: I put on jeans and boots (my first flat pair of boots EVER) for the first time in 17 months. Literally. I have only worn leggings/yoga pants and Uggs/runners every day for 17 months.
Of course, as soon as Z. left, I went back to my PJs, but it’s the effort that counts!
A visit from my mother AND brother!
Yes, I am standing up and smiling and tolerating photos! Amazing.
A rare few inches of snow.
Egg challenge. It didn’t go so well.
Plantain crackers: click image for recipe.
Grass-fed organic lamb shepherd’s pie with cauliflower-sweet potato mash: click image for recipe.
Spice blends from Practical Paleo: click image for link to book.
An incredible batch of granola for Z. that I couldn’t taste because I’m not eating oats at the moment.
My husband makes me meals and freezes them, like this beef stew. ❤
Breakfast: butternut squash, asparagus and grass-fed beef hash, with a side of apple sauce.
A bit of craic, sure
Anna’s hummingbird outside my window.
Bowie in the cemetery last month (I haven’t been able to leave the house in the last 5 weeks, but I hope to get a February cemetery visit in a few weeks)
The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl! But Bowie was not a fan of the celebratory fireworks and backed himself into my lap in fear. 😦
