    Well, well. You know how a short time ago I reported my hot flashes had vanished and my libido returned? Something else has returned! Aunt Flo visited me last night! WTF? I thought I was done! I had wondered why I was unusually hungry and also had a couple of very small, superficial blemishes. Mystery solved. Can you believe it? Forever youthful, that's me.

    Another weird thing - and this may be my imagination - my hair seems to be growing in not grey. I've been checking my roots, thinking it might be time for some highlights - the last time was the end of May - and I don't see any grey. My hair is not a particularly nice color anymore - my strawberry blond is long gone and now it can best be described as dishwater blonde - but it isn't grey. I don't get it. Am I imagining things?

    I like my latest batch of kombucha and am happy with adding the raspberry tea after the fermentation. It has a nice raspberry flavor and a pretty color. I drank one jar, and decanted a couple of others into a Gerolsteiner bottle (25 oz.) to take to work.

    Had a very large breakfast (for me) - three eggs scrambled with feta and chives and four slices of bacon.

    Am looking at Le Creuset pans and lusting after a saucepan. http://www.amazon.com/Le-Creuset-Ena...sette+cookware They are wicked expensive but last forever. Now that I am using my cast iron pans almost exclusively, I have noted that Lodge does not make saucepans. And I'm not buying a Chinese made cast iron pan. My research shows they sometimes contain lead and they are not well made - they have rough edges and often rust regardless of care.

    The last time I saw someone so excited for their period is when an ex-girlfriend had a ... uhh.. longer than expected wait time between visits. Congrats returning to your youthful self!

    Sidebar: that's MDA success story material there though I'm not sure you'd want to share your period with the primal world.

    Wow, some great deals there! I wonder how picky I should be?

    Here I am at work, sipping away at my homemade brew - life is good! I have a slab of beef chuck in the slow cooker so home will smell really nice when I get there in the morning. I haven't eaten the one I made a couple of days ago - well, one small piece. But I will eat it over the next two nights here at work.

    Swam the last two days. Having a hard time getting back into it! I'm enjoying being in the water but the actual swimming is coming slowly. Really got out of shape. I know how it goes, though. I'll struggle for a few days and then it will just kick in and I'll be swimming for 30 minutes no problem.

    Question............ not that I should be questioning a nurse........... but............. how long was it that your period had stopped before returning so unexpectedly?
    1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
    2. Eat to heal
    3. Move to live
    4. Embrace today
    5. Live with intention
    6. Respect my body
    7. Cultivate joy
    8. Find my passion
    9. Meditate on peace in my soul

    Lol, not a nurse - I'm a respiratory therapist. I hadn't had one since January and at age 54 I figured that was it! You have to go a year without a period to be considered menopausal and I was closing in on it, but now the clock starts over.
