True, but those moments will not require the arsenal of parkas, boots, scarves, mittens, gloves, heavy sweaters, long johns and hats we own. :D

One coat will suffice.

indeed :)  i moved down here with all the winter stuff (snow pants!  lol!  and even ice skates) and promptly got rid of most of it.  now, all my clothes are made of tissue paper - i had to go north in december and my sister picked me up at the airport.  with a wool coat (and i needed it!  Brrrr!)

... REDRUM!!  I'm slow today, that took me a moment!  LOL :D  Good laugh though, thank you.

 

Yeah, our ground's still frozen except in the warmest corners of the yard. Our last frost free day is usualy a week or so after mothers day but still, the snow's getting to be a bit much. We had a total whitout for about half an hour today.  Ick. :blink:

I don't know how you guys do it, I would be completely criminally insane. Don't get me wrong, I refuse to live where it doesn't snow. I demand snow for both Christmas and my birthday. But by this time of year, I expect green grass, flowers, gardening, short sleeve weather and generally to have winter long behind me.

The only day I want to see any snow: Christmas Eve.

 

The maple tress are popping open, the lilacs are getting ready to burst open and it will smell wonderful for 2 weeks. The large bush is  outside my bedroom and I will open the window. (even if it is too cold).

 

The daffodils are open but the tulips are taking their time.

 

I mowed yesterday. yup, the mowing season is officially open.

I was reading that book in a  public laundromat years ago and was still scared out of my head. 

 

I know it's Jack b/c I have a brother named Jack, an ex named Jack and one in my life right now....(i know, crazy) and it's a common joke around here.

My late friend Kelly once broke up with a guy named Ron and almost immediately got involved with another guy named Ron. We kept telling her, "Two Rons don't make a right." (And we were correct - the second Ron didn't work out either.)

whew...for a second there, I thought you had forgotten your kid's name. 

 

Well, having all those Bills makes it easy when you have brain frogs. Just yell Bill! and odds are, someone will come. It may not be the Bill you had intended, of course.. 

 

Okay, it's 75 and sunny. Spring is here.  B) about freakin time.

Sorry, kiddo. :unsure:

 

There was a famous blizzard in May, 1977 that I recall very well. I am thinking I was about your age (I was in  college)

Kitty grass has sprouted in two planters on the patio -- one happy kitty kat :)

 

& poppy buds are popping out of the top of the soil of the heirloom tomato shopping bag planters -- can't wait until the flowers bloom

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
