Slept and slept - guess I was tired! Lots of sleeping has led to a 16-hr IF. Woke up quite hungry! Had a hot dog, a scrambled egg, cheese, guacamole, iced coffee - the last of my cold-brewed batch. Must get some more coffee so I can make some more. I feel great, if a bit full. Am having fun drinking out of my Henri the Existential Cat mug. One day when I was a bit down I indulged in retail therapy and purchased a mug and a mouse pad even though they were a bit pricey. I was quite pleasantly surprised when they arrived and proved to be very good quality, well above what I would have expected. The mouse pad is very thick and of a nice material and cheers me greatly at work (don't use a mouse at home) and the mug is extra-large, heavy, but not too heavy. Big enough to keep around with water in it but okay for coffee and tea. I smile every time I look at it, so I consider it money well spent even though I am trying to cut back, with some success.
I'm starting to settle into certain foods, developing a menu of six or seven primal meals that I like. Makes shopping and cooking a lot easier. Eggs are a staple, of course, squashes, leafy greens, berries, bananas, avocados, cheese, rotating chicken and turkey as I get bored with those very quickly. Some kind of beef - either roast beef I can buy already cooked, hot dogs, ground beef. I wanted to get away from elaborate cooking and meals - have a simpler eating routine. My kitchen is totally primal, helped along by my recent move. No point it dragging along open containers of flour, etc. Just pitched everything that was open and took the rest to the food bank. No non-primal oils.
I'm going to break down and dye my hair this morning. I have been toying with the idea of going natural, but my hair at this point is a very dirty looking drab gray. I'm not ready for that. I'm only 53! Hopefully it will turn a nicer shade, platinum or something. Doubt it though, none of my sisters are platinum.
Last night a terrific storm blew up, very violent, trees whipping all over, rain in sheets, thunder, lightning - and it was over in 10 minutes. Scared my cats something fierce. What a view I have here in my treehouse! Today is crystal clear and perfect. Just another day in paradise.
