    Tomi, I'm not looking so much to get cheaper clothes, but ones that actually fit me. My body doesn't fit industry standards, and I am so sick of not having things fit. I did buy one meter of material from the remnant bin, thinking to make a scarf or two out of it. But looking at my patterns, I might be able to squeeze a short-sleeved blouse out of it. It's a lovely print.

    And today was a busy day. I fixed up the mess in the kitchen, and then promptly made a new one, because Translator Son and family were coming over. I made chili (no beans, lots of peppers), served over spaghetti squash, with curried roasted cauliflower. Big head of cauliflower, all gone! Not much chili or spaghetti squash left either. I also baked a small pumpkin (for pie, going to use MDA's recipe) and an acorn squash for later in the week. Using Siobhan's trick to roast several veggies together, saving time and energy. Grandson #2 was thrilled by the hot oven, because it gave his first perfect sentence a good workout: It's hot! He said it over and over, very pleased with himself. I was pleased with him too. It was the first time I had heard him enunciate something so well. Grandson #1 proudly showed me the marks on his arm from a trip to the allergist (proud now, apparently put up quite a fight while he was there). Verdict: negative for milk allergy. And baby gurgled and smiled at me, so a lovely afternoon.

    Anyway, the kitchen is a disaster area again, but I'll wait till tomorrow to do anything about it. I actually had a nap in the evening, which is why I'm wide awake now... oops. I promise I'll take it easy tomorrow, but I'm actually feeling pretty good, all in all.

    Sabine, I hear you. I am thinking of finding out which retailers are the worst offenders and avoiding them.

    Wow Judg, sounds like a really good day! And dinner sounded good too! I also let the kitchen wait until I have energy in the morning - it is just too much at the end of a busy day ... and our dishwasher uses all the hot water for the shower so that has to wait anyway for the morning.

    Fabric, aaaah, I miss the Indian fabric stores in SA!! OMG you can get the most incredible fabrics for very, very good prices there. If you are brave enough to go into those sections of town and if you get back out in one piece nowadays Maybe I will stick with the expensive stuff here afterall. At least I am not risking life and limb to go shopping for fabric here. I am a real beginner with sewing clothes, it is a laborious process - but a lot of fun and so rewarding. Just SO hard to find time to do it along with everything else that has to happen in my days. I am halfway through making DS a button up shirt and DD is still waiting for a pair of pretty pants. And part of the reason I am sewing for them (esp DD) is because we are both different shapes from the store styles and it is so hard to find clothing that fits comfortably and looks halfway decent!

    It was a great day, Coll. But I am very, very slow today. It's weird, I can hardly get myself to do anything, and when I try to work, I keep zoning out. But I am not aching with fatigue, or depressed, as sometimes happens when I'm too tired. A less crushing kind of fatigue. I'll take it, for now...

    Tomi, forgot to say, I'll look online, thanks. I didn't have enough time to browse the other day because I knew I still had to do my grocery shopping.

    Ok, orders for the evening -- a relaxing shower or bath, a slow and yummy dinner, a good book, or whatever relaxes and rests you. It is so good you aren't aching or depressed, but no sense pushing it. Have the greatest evening ever and wake up all refreshed:-)

    Thanks, Pam. You're sweet.

    I already had an early supper (yesterday's leftovers) but I'm thinking I am going to need a snack. That bath sounds good...

    You will let me take the load out of the dryer, right?

    Judg, early night for you! I hope to follow you soon! Pretty pooped tonight after a really late night and then early morning! BUT, normal fatigue for which I am grateful for, so sorry you have to deal with such nasty stuff. Only one load from the tumbledrier and then time to relax

    I think you have several Nanny's on here giving you orders for the evening I just hope you have a nice restful night.
    Read post #2626
    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    Lopisheep- I think, judging from her last picture, we COULD have her running around naked. Heehee. But seriously, nothing better than having the house to yourself, so you can be naked if you want to, or are too tired to get the laundry. But oh, those alarming, unexpected knocks at the door!

    Oh, yes! I was thinking of the naked out in public:-) Definitely has the body for it, but outdoors -- we don't want her getting arrested:-)
