    How does Paleobird make it with her tea?

    Yeah, I think I will. If I don't go, I'll just sit on the couch

    I don't recall exactly, but it was a lot of gelatin with rooibos tea and added fresh lime juice. It was either in her journal or maybe the second reality check thread. She suggested any type of tea would work well. I could see Tazo Passion or Wild Sweet Orange giving lots of good flavour if brewed double strength.

    I'm not sure if I'm repeating anything here, but are you taking magnesium supplements? I used to get crazy chocolate cravings that I couldn't understand. There were times when I was like, hey, if you want to binge on some sugar, there's other crap in the house. But I didn't want that other crap. I wanted chocolate. I had to basically strap myself down not to go get some. I thought that was weird enough that I should research it. Turns out chocolate, especially the good dark stuff, is really rich in magnesium. If you're deficient in it, which all insulin-resistant people are, and chocolate is your main source of magnesium, your body will tell you it will die without chocolate. What it's really saying is your body will die without enough magnesium. So I started taking magnesium supplements, now even with my calcium intake, and haven't had a crazy chocolate craving like that since.

    Oh yum. I have a bottle of organic cherry juice concentrate and a huge box of Knox, "Jell-o" is a great idea

    It snowed last night and all day today.
    I cleaned and then taught at the local school for the afternoon. Easy.
    More cleaning when I got home. Eldest Son is bringing a New Girlfriend home for the weekend. I have to drive into London to pick them up; the bus gets in at 9:30 tonight. I hope the roads stay OK…I’m going in a little early, to find the Chai spices and to buy an electric kettle (I think the stovetop one I have is not good for my new stovetop…)

    Thanks.
    I'm back. The roads were better coming home than going.
    I don't think it's the "kettle of my dreams" but for $25, it'll work

    I found all the spices I needed and bought a couple of loose teas.
    Pomegranate lavender and a vanilla roobios.

    It's bed time, I'll have to read everyone's journals tomorrow...

    Red Wine
    Roast chicken, cheese and basil stuffed mushroom caps, roasted carrots and potatoes, corn, dark chocolate covered cheesecake bite, frozen raspberries and whipping cream, pomegranate & lavender tea.

    6 reverse chin-ups

    Sleep, Sun & Play
    12:00 – 10:00, no, yes

    Use Your Brain, Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    Easy slow morning. Eldest and Girlfriend slept till noon. After lunch, I made the Chai. It smelled great and then I added the cream and it was too weak At 4 I took Eldest, Girlfriend, Lily & Josie to the lake. I took the butterflies for a short walk and then came back home to finish supper. Eldest and his Girlfriend stayed for a longer walk and visit and then came back home with my parents for supper. They just left (11:30)
