I woke up yesterday morning with only about 10% hearing in my left ear. Strange feeling. Every time one of the dogs barked it was painful. I wasn't worth much most of the day, felt really poorly. GREAT. I DO NOT need to be sick. Especially not being able to hear clearly. About 2pm I started feeling much, much better and I could hear again! My food consumption was off course but I had decided to just listen to my body. Started the day with two eggs, followed by a chocolate "milkshake" (frozen banana, coconut milk ice cream, chocolate and vanilla almond milks). Pot roast soup for lunch, cheese in the afternoon. Hamburger soup for dinner followed by blackberries with creme fraiche sprinkled with coconut sugar. This is way more food than I usually consume, way more and something made me really gassy. Watch the darn scale go down.
Thought of Sabine yesterday when I finished sewing a pair of pj pants that I started two years ago. Gave me the itch to sew a few more soon. To bring down my fabric stash, I've been finding shirts at Goodwill that coordinate with particular fabrics and sewing pj pants to match them. Not only do I have a unique ensemble that no one else has but it fits me. The pants are actually long enough for my really long legs. I'm stylin'!
More heavy work for me this week. I need to get the bricks laid so the pot can have its permanent home, I need to empty the greenhouse of all plant material that isn't crop related, I have several plants that have to go in the ground and lots of debris for the burn pile. We're talking large branches here. Once I have the right kind of weather I can get that pile touched off and the property cleaned up.
I need a girl day.
If your body is willing, your mind can push it to do some amazing things.
