hi GlassOwl, congratulations on your success with primal so far. It seems to be working well for you so it seems that including some dairy is not a problem for you. I think that four days of walking, one of gardening and one of cycling is very workable exercise-wise and will be a lot more than most people do. i would put in a plug for some weights work maybe once a week, I have found it very beneficial and now I truly enjoy it
Your crafts sound very interesting. My mum is into felting - my girls all have handmade slippers and I have worn a felted hat she made me. Silversmithing - what is that like? My most recent activity was soapmaking.
