    How's the sinus infection? Hope the milk helps the AR. I'm heading into my bad season - hope to keep asthma in control this year (it's the cascade thing!).

    Well, this is very unscientific and probably the placebo effect, but the sinuses are much better. Or maybe the allergen is reduced today. I have heard that ragweed is horrible this year, but isn't it horrible every year?

    Being tortured by new home construction right at the bottom of the hill. Loud, loud, loud. I sleep during the day! Or try to. And don't tell me to wear earplugs. It's like telling me to mop up the Atlantic Ocean with a Kleenex. This is full on construction with backhoes, chainsaws, jackhammers. And it is about 50 yards away. So much for my rural idyll!

    Started off my 21-day challenge by whacking my right knee with my sledgehammer. An abrupt reminder that shovelglove can be dangerous! Need to be careful! But it is okay, nothing serious. Might have a bruise.

    Well. Knee felt much better after a short icing with a frozen steak so I went for a quick hike on my favorite trail and got gnawed on by a dog! Didn't break the skin but I have a nice bruise and it is quite sore. Lucky I had my watch on. The owner didn't even say "sorry" or anything! Just kept walking! It was a labradoodle! Oh, the indignity!

    Just threw down a porterhouse steak and lettuce and tomato salad. So good.

    Sleep deprivation, smacked by a sledge hammer, bitten by a dog. I think you need to go back to bed. Maybe with a margarita.

    You know, looking back at yesterday I realized how far I've come. Once upon a time, not all that long ago and in this very same galaxy, a day like that would have pretty much whupped me. I probably would have cried or something. But it was just stuff that happened. I even laughed about most of it, although I was momentarily concerned about the dog un-bite. Update: All is well this morning, just a minor bruise on the knee, no pain, the dog un-bite is greatly reduced, and I slept like a rock for eight hours last night. My mind is in a much better place and these little things don't bother me.

    Watched Das Rheingold last night, although I had trouble staying awake. Why are they showing these whomping long operas starting at 9 PM? Even for me this is late. It is one thing to run around a hospital at all hours, it is another to sit in a chair and listen to music and read subtitles til midnight. And the next three are even longer!

    Had a GREAT breakfast this morning, local-caught haddock and a simple lettuce salad. Must have fish for breakfast more often. I just put it in foil with some Old Bay and butter and capers, baked it for 20 minutes. Delicious!

    My review of Paleo Comfort Foods by Julie and Charles Mayfield: Good, even great recipes. Way too much personal info about perfect Julie and Charles and their apparently idyllic life. Nothing wrong with some biographical stuff, and a little personality thrown in here and there, but the relentless hammering about their gloriousness has no place here. I'm not buying their memoirs, I'm buying a cookbook. Actually, NOT buying it, as it is a library book. I'm torn between really liking the recipes and being really sick of all the personal stuff.

    Funny, I had the same reaction to their book!

    Man, some dog owners need to be leashed! Any way you can record your operas?

    Sounds like a very irritating cookbook. It's almost too bad the recipes are good.
