Well, the perfect weather is only because we are living in a 'high desert' area - and this year is extremely dry even for here! I was reading today that the snow pack (that is the main source of water for most of the mountainous areas and those close) is only at about 10% of normal!! This means that unless things change radically there will be towns without water before the summer is over!!
And I have had a VERY stressful day as there is a wildfire raging out of control nearby. The smoke clouds just terrible and so I called the sherriff's department and they said that there were mandatory evacuations going on as the fire was spreading toward dwellings etc. She told me to be ready in case we got the call to say we needed to evacuate. I didn't realise how much that was going to stress me at the time. I found myself wandering around the house packing up odds and ends that are not replaceable, trying to think of what I might be missing, trying to plan how we'll get the chickens and dog transported, talking to SIL to arrange for help if we do have to evacuate. Trying to keep the kids busy with school and still look normal when I am wondering if this is our next challenge after two moves in one year and all the other stressful things that we have survived over the last years. It took me all the way through to this afternoon to start to pull myself together and relax. The vehicle has a couple suitcases packed with a couple of days worth of clothes and there are a few boxes piled near the door waiting in case. Got chickens feed mixed and packed up, birth certificates packed, wedding photos packed etc etc.
I was so stressed this afternoon that I felt nauseated and my tummy was not pleased with me Had a couple sips of kefir and felt better.
Breakfast: tea with cream and stevia
Lunch: 1/4 cup macadamias, half a leftover pork chop, 2 fried eggs, handful of baby carrots, date roll
Dinner: Bowl of minced beef stew - decided against having a whey drink even though I felt hungry -ish. I think it is the stress talking - may grab some veggies on my way to bed ...
