"No fate but what we make"- Sarah Connor, Terminator 2
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Primal Battle Tome
So we had a great opening weekend and I met the theatre ghost. I'll tell about that tomorrow. I'll also give an update on my eating plan etc.
Today we were off for Veteran's Day. I stacked wood with my kids (given freely by some loving cousins) and did a ton of grading to prep for giving my students their 1st quarter grades this week.
Theatre Ghost The Coach House players are literally housed in a coach house from the 1800's. The theatre section is where the coaches were kept and the dressing room/workroom is where the horses were stabled. The attic area which used to house the feed is now costume and prop storage. On Saturday night at one point I went back to the dressing room alone. All the other actors were onstage or waiting in the foyer. I was gathering props and music when suddenly I heard a crinkling noise. the end of a roll of plastic attached to the wall was waving at me. I felt very welcomed in that moment and I said "Hello there." out loud. It was not a draft because I have watched that plastic for two days now and it has not moved. On Sunday afternoon, The director took my sons and I on a tour of the attic space. When he got us up there he said. "There is a theatre ghost, you know. He only appears to women." I said. "Oh, I think he said hi to me last night". Apparently he manifests physically as well. Glad he didn't do that to me...at least until I get to know him better.
Eating Plan I wanted to report that I have successfully made it through PMS week without a binge. I am following the carb guidelines of Schwarzbein Principal II. I am eating whole foods with a 50g whey protein drink in the am. (just chocolate whey protein and water) My copy of Nourishing Traditions has arrived, so I am working my way through that. Not currently losing due to TOM.
***My husband sent me an email of Paleo recipes. I'm not sure what that means. lol
I like friendly ghosts. And polite ones, too, that introduce themselves before popping in. Do they know anything about him, besides his friend preferences?
Smallish man with an english cap and a pipe. Probably a stable worker of some sort.
Can't say I can think of any supernatural encounters I've ever had, but I love reading about them. I spook myself too much with everyday things (being alone in the house, NO NOISE WHATSOEVER, and I get scared...of absolutely nothing) to probably ever notice something out of the ordinary.
Congrats on the PMS-week success. I am thinking of re-introducing whey protein shakes myself, since I've been pretty inconsistent about eating in the mornings lately and I've had a lot of mood fluctuations.

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Congrats on your new friend! and on the eating, can't wait to hear about Nourishing Traditions
