The sun is shining right now in Northern Maine, the forecast calls for 50-60's! Where did I put those flip flops haha probably right next to my winter boots that I'll need this weekend

You can wear flip flops and shorts one day and boots and scarves the next ....during March, April and sometimes May and October.

You think 50 degree water is  " a:good swimming temp"

You think 8 inches of snow is a "dusting".

I heard a rumor that here in Ohio, Sunday was sunny and 70 degrees.  Unfortunately I missed it because I was sicker than a dog.

Looks like that horrid weather has finally found the energy to cross the equator and head our way.  We are due for a week of rain... only it's not really going to rain, you know that, it's going to mizzle and sneet and do anything except provide the right moisture to green up our parched paddocks to provide winter feed for our sheeps, cows, and deers, before the ice stops the growth and we start feeding out the hay and silage and bailage we made in our most abundant spring.  And then we will start snowplowing and digging out the stock from under feets of snow and having baby lambs on the hearth feeding out of bottles.... and so the cycle repeats itself... endlessly.... :rolleyes:

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Its snowing like mad now. I slipped and fell on the ice earlier. I did not see it at all. It was coating one of those metal grate like things. Luckily, i didn't hurt myself. My bum will probably be bruised and my knee was a little sore (it gave out when i fell i think).

 

I had to put my backpack on my back instead of wheeling it. My neck (from keeping my head to my chest as i walked because of blowing snow) and back are a little sore now, but i'm fine.

I used to like Spring but not anymore.  My eyes have been red for 3 weeks and I have had trouble not sneezing constantly when I go outdoors on high mold days.  It has not been this bad in years but we had a lot of snow this winter and snow ends up as mold in the Spring.  Freakin' Bah Humbug.....you can keep mold season.  :angry:

 

So, I guess retirement for me will be an igloo somewhere around Loves to Travel's house....which may not be bad as she is an amazing cook!  ;)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
