    Nice job on getting the insurance forms in. No doubt a great load off your mind.

    I love the shoes! I might have to seek out a pair of those. Did you get the light coloured ones?

    I was pretty disturbed by the Boston bombings, too. Really reminds me of dealing with all those mangled IED blasted soldiers when I was deployed. Horrible, nasty business. Not surprised at all about the descriptions of the injuries, that was what we had to deal with every day for 7 months in the desert. Truly tragic.

    It IS a load off my mind. I hadn't realized how much.

    Yes I got the light coloured ones

    I really can't begin to imagine what you've gone through...

    Even better then, that you got it done. A healing process.

    Um, yeah. I don't regret being there - yes, I volunteered to deploy - but it stays with you. I think the sheer volume of dealing with the results of mans' atrocities to man for so long was the worst part. I did eventually get some help to get over the most acute of the after effects, now I look back at it as a learning and growth experience. What the hell else can you do with that?

    Thursday
    It was a BEAUTIFUL day today!! 21 C!! And I had to supply teach. After work, I bought some paint and a laser pointer and made a hair apt to hide the silver. I've decided that I'm not quite ready to let it go silver yet. Then I sat out in a lawn chair with my Farmer and watched the Butterflies dig in the field. Of course, now in the evening, I'm surfing the net.

    I might change up my checklist. Combine the old with the new. See if I like it any better.

    Winencandy's Checklist (modified to follow the Primal 10 Laws)

    Basic Primal Foods - pepperoni, cheese, almonds, pistachios, chicken thighs, sweet potato fries, stuffed mushroom caps, watermelon, peppermint tea

    Eat More Fat
    Whipping Cream Chai - 10 am, Honey
    Shangri-La Shot - Nope, but I had a couple "fat bombs" in the afternoon. (butter, cream cheese)

    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    Watching Amounts - yup
    NO Alcohol - Check! I had a club soda with lime instead
    NO Sugar - CHECK!!!!

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    Nope

    Sleep, Sun, Play and Use Your Brain
    10:30pm - 8:30am
    I had to work while the sun was strong, but I sat out in the fresh air after work
    I bought a laser pointer and played with the cats I bought black paint to paint a post outside my back door, I played Skylander (I know, that's NOT what Mark means)
    I didn't really challenge my brain today


    We are having a RIBFEST on Saturday! Really just an excuse to have a bunch of friends over to eat Every couple brings a rack of ribs and my BIL and University Son are going to be "judges" Farmer is making a trophy!
    There will be alcohol...and probably sugar...

    Right now I've gotta search for a pork rib recipe...

    Ribfest sounds great! I'd suggest a dry rub with a paleo BBQ sauce.

    Friday
    Cold, windy rainy day today
    I went to a PD session today. They had a pot luck lunch. I took a huge block of old cheddar. I was able to choose mostly Primal foods. I came home my Farmer and his friend were having a beverage. I joined them with some wine. After supper we prepared the rib & chicken breast marinades. Now I'm debating surfing the web or a nice soak in the clawfoot...I think the clawfoot will win. It's cold and rainy out and my back is sore. Besides, I surfed last night.

    Winencandy's Checklist

    Basic Primal Foods - banana nut "muffins" some fruit at the PD session. Pot luck lunch: pulled pork, meatballs, chili, Caesar salad, grapes in yogurt with almonds, (I'm SURE there was wheat in the meatballs - whatever) ham, fried zucchini, onions and mushrooms, salad: cucumber, basil, balsamic, garlic and olive oil, watermelon. peppermint tea

    Eat More Fat
    Whipping Cream Chai - 9 am, honey
    Shangri-La Shot - Nope

    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    Watching Amounts - lunch was kinda big, but not as big as some people's...
    NO Alcohol - Nope - about 1/2 a bottle of Waka Waka (white)
    NO Sugar - I had a bite of a date square, but didn't finish it. It didn't taste as good as I thought it would. a couple bites of cherry cheesecake. And 1/2 a dark chocolate bar after supper

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    Kinda - we played a "game" at the PD. Traveling across the gym in teams of 6 using 2 gym mats as "boats". They sent out team back 5 times!

    Sleep, Sun, Play and Use Your Brain
    11pm - 8am, no sun, play in the gym, Skylander.
    I didn't really use my brain much at the PD...


    Dragon won today,

    Dragon will win again tomorrow

    Saturday

    Ribfest was small, but awesome! We had 12 people, 4 entries and 3 judges. My Farmer made a trophy (I forgot to take a photo! - I'll get one the next time I go to the winner's house. It wasn't us - but that means we don't have to prominently display the trophy all year We came in 2nd using this rib recipe - only we cooked them long and slow all day - and this sauce)

    There was probably some sugar in one of the rib sauces. We had roasted carrots, "double" baked potato halves, and Caesar salad.

    I drank wine.

    I felt OK the next day.

    Sunday

    Surfer Son has decided on a summer job. He going to operate a Bait Shop at a marina. He's got some work to do to get ready. Sunday afternoon I helped him paint inside the Bait shop. It was cold! I came home, pulled on warm socks and curled up with a blanket and season 1 of Game of Thrones. I CAN'T believe I haven't watched it before! I'm hooked now!

    I ate 1/2 a dark chocolate bar. It was open...
