Autumn has always been a favourite time of the year for me - in South Africa too. I would suddenly feel as though I had energy again and there is nothing like snuggling under the covers when it is nippy outside And inside too,actually
It has been a busy day what with school and catching up with e-mail etc.
Breakfast was 3 fried eggs and 4 breakfast sausages, cup of tea with cream, and one square of 85% chocolate. Lunch was 2 hotdogs, a carrot, a handful of macadamias and an egg, cauliflower, onion, Parmesan concoction that was yummy but filling and another cup of tea with cream. Then this afternoon I slipped and had some macadamias and pecans - emotional eating I know! I certainly wasn't hungry! But stressed because I am looking around for a home for us and there is not much out there that we could afford or would want to live in. On one hand it is fun to look but tough too. I want to try and familiarize myself with what is out there and where to look, but I can only do it in small doses and I think I may have overdosed this afternoon! Dinner was cauliflower rice with ground beef stew on top. Tasty and filling. Now I have to exercise my self discipline (I think that sometimes I am retarded in that area!!!) and not eat anything else before bedtime. I am actually thirsty this evening so I think I will just down a bottle of water. Of course that means I will probably be getting up in the night but I am thirsty enough to not care. Oh, I also had about 2 tablespoons of butter (Kerrygold - yum) before dinner. I couldn't quite bring myself to have CO today - didn't want to feel nasty and try to do school! I will take a 1/4 teaspoon with breakfast again tomorrow and see if I still feel yuck. I am going to take it really slow with that as I have no intention of ever feeling that horrible, scary reaction that I had before! Easy does it - I tend to go gung ho with stuff like that, not this time :O
So grateful that DH's work keeps on coming in! SO wonderful to start paying off some of the debt we accumulated over a few years on half time of a carpenters pay!!! Just keep praying that the calls will keep coming ... we feel so blessed and grateful. Trusting that others will also be blessed in their work and finances. It can be SOOOOO stressful.
