You must be East of here (the Dakotas). We had snow Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. But I'm happy to tell you the SUN is out today!!! And it's supposed to warm up to the 50's by tomorrow!!

 

So hang on, it's coming. (<- Hopeful words from the Land of Eternal Winter.)

We're west of you ... and north - Alberta.

 

It did not snow today. Not once!!! Yeah!

When I put out all the patio furniture this weekend I had no idea there would be snow on the ground this morning.  I guess it will be May before I can go to a Nursery and get flowers.  I love the first snow of the season but am ready to kill with this (hopefully) last snow.

Last night it was about 34 out while we stood out at 1 in the morning and watched the lunar eclipse peak. We live in a dessert, so spring means that nights are still positively frigid. Two nights ago while we were up late playing games together we suddenly heard a pattering on the window, which was weird because we're in the basement. That pattering suddenly was pounding with howling wind. We had to run out to rescue our newly planted seeds from a horrid hail storm at nearly 2 in the morning. The wind was so bad that I had to lean all my weight into the door over the knob to get it to close. 

 

Hopefully spring is going to get around to sticking around for everyone soon. The bright side here is that at least the fruit trees still seem to have all (or at least most) of their buds. Last year most were lost in a really awful late frost and it was really bad for the orchard owners. Looks like they escaped a tragedy a second year in a row.

We had a really nasty hail storm on Saturday.  My brother still doesn't have power back yet.  Then we were hit with high winds and I lost power for a day.  Today we have about 3 inches and off and on snow showers.

 

(I think I have run out of cuss words at this point!)

We had 85 here yesterday and freezing with a possibility of flakiness here (DC) this morning.   At least it is warming up again today.  Cherry blossoms are flying all over the place, landing in the back yard etc.

 

Here's a link for an idea on coloring Easter eggs with herb leaves.  And it's on a chicken site for the chicken lovers out there.

It's been snowing off and on this past week but it stopped snowing two days ago so my boys were able to do their Easter egg hunt outside. It got up to about 12C today... not bad.  Our snowman is standing on just grass now.  LOL

 

We have crocuses blooming now, and tulips are poking their heads out of the ground... spring will come one day. Hopefully.

It's been snowing for 24 hours now.... If it hadn't been 20C recently (just two freaking days ago) the accumulation would have been well over 8 inches, but as it was we still have 4-6 inches of snow... and we still had to shovel our driveway.

 

I am so ready for spring! The trees are finally starting to bud, well some of them are anyways.  LOL

 

Hopefully it will have melted before my kids play soccer on Tuesday.  :rolleyes:

I actually got a sunburn today, well wind/sun burn, being out in the warm, very windy day for four hours.

It's mild, but it's there! Sorry it's still snowing up in Canoehead Land. :rolleyes:  Heeheehee..... I think maybe

we should decide as a race, to stop living in places that don't make sense. Like, California. And New

Orleans. And the South Pole.

No snow here, 70's and 80's lately.   Here's a sign of spring for sure.  Boids at the feeder web cam.  Don't forget to enable the sound on the lower left side of video screen.

And this one has some boids on chart you can click to identify their songs.  Takes bit to load tho.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
