I see this old barn every time I take Roy for a walk. It makes me sad that it is so neglected.
I have been taking it pretty easy, still getting settled, figuring out this new "semi-retirement", and basically enjoying the process.
On a medical update, I don't think that the gin and raisins are a viable option for decreasing arthritis pain.
Not to mention that they are disgusting.
I have been going for my osteopathic manipulative treatments for the last month or so, and the incredible news is that my headaches have decreased in severity 50%, and some days even more than that.
To say that I am 'over the moon' would not do my feelings about this any justice.
I am amazed, grateful, relieved. It's been a long 3 and a half years.
As you who follow me here, know all too well.
So on my last OMT, my doctor said, I think you should try a gluten free diet for 6 weeks.
Yes, he thinks that it will help my persistent stomach issues, and more. In fact, he said he is 98% sure that I will feel better on many levels.
And because I love him (how could I not?) and trust him, I said OK.
I've been on it 7 days today. One week down.
It has definitely been a thought process.
And of course, I already don't eat meat, so this really complicates things.
This is my meat free, gluten free, burrito bowl.
It was delicious.
Brown rice, sauteed red peppers and onions, black beans, cheese, lettuce/tomatoes, avocado, and a little salsa.
And if he is right, who knows, maybe it will be a way of life.
This weekend I started some 2'x6' runners, here is the first.
I love the vibrant colors.
And you know me and color.
