Still nice and warm here in Croatia. Lush and very, very green. Back in Canada? Not so much...

You'll probably have a crust of ice on your windows when you get back! I can't figure out why you don't just stay in Croatia. A perfect paradise sure sounds better than living in a freezer box.

So sorry you're already getting hit with snow. It's cold in RI & that's caused the foliage to be lackluster. Lots of bare trees already. Praying the snow doesn't cause power outages or other bad conditions for you! Those of you in warmer climates have the right idea!

Starting next May we will be living here and cannot wait. Just one more icky winter to get through!!! There is a lot of residency red tape and such to get through but it will be so worth it in the end.

And I keep telling Love2 that May will be here before she knows it.

And soon, she will be living in her Paradise. Yaaay!! :)

 

I hate to report this, because I am not trying to be  a wiseguy-- honest--

but every day is a lovely sunny 80-something (NO humidity) and the lows are 71.

I used to live in Indiana.  I moved to Arizona to get away from the snow.  Now all I have is dust and a severe case of chronic hayfever.  So much fun.  I wasn't expecting that.  Still, I really hated the snow and truly understand what a pain it can be!

Sorry to hear of your hayfever. Not a great trade, is it?

So, we have had tons of snow on the ground for two weeks. Three blizzards with rain between so the streets are polished thick ice. Our coldest temp has been -22C thus far...soooooooooooo relieved this is our last Canadian winter!

Well a cold front moved through here and we were down to a frigid 79 on Wednesday.

I actually saw some people with leather jackets or hoodies and sweats on.

Really, people?

IT'S 79!!! I'm still sitting on the beach for crying out loud.

Good thing it went back up to 82 yesterday or these peeps would have been cranking up the heat.

Can't wait until my blood thins out like that.

Ha.  My Mom has lived in Hawaii around 10 years now and when they visit me in Ohio in August the heat, which really effects me poorly, has no effect on them and if the temperature drops below 80 they are reaching for a throw :lol:

Haha. I was talking to my daughter yesterday in AR and it was mid-60s there. She had to go outside and was getting a coat. Not a jacket, a COAT!!! I'd be out in a freakin t-shirt. And my kids both wish it snowed more. They'd probably both freeze to death.

 

We had snow yesterday. Instead of the overnight snow that melts away first thing we had snow all day long. It was sitting right around 33-34 though so it melted off the roads and only stuck on the grass. Perfect. ^_^ It'll be gone today though. Mid 40s which isn't even jacket weather with the sun out, just long sleeves.

Being used to really hot temps, then going to a place with a really cold winter is not fun.

Psh, they lived in PA before they moved. They should consider AR a tropical paradise in comparison!

LOL Ah geez! Our country's hot spots are in BC and it's cool and rainy there now.  

 

It was -20C today. I think that's about 80F less than you have down there, Irish! LOL  Winter has moved in.  :ph34r: <-- Forget ninja, dude is wearing a balaclava!

Gosh, snow on the ground last week and tornados last night.  I believe Mother Nature has "brain fog".

It was 60 yesterday and in the upper 50's earlier today. The temperature has just plummeted and it's supposed to rain/snow. They are warning that the roads will become icy quickly. I'll be heading home the minute it starts to precipitate. Supposed to be in the lower teens tonight and zero tomorrow night. By Saturday they say it'll be back in the 40's. Rollercoaster weather!

We've got cold and wet, but no snow. It's been drizzly and chilly for a few days and it looks to keep up with the same nonsense, only getting outright cold. Today it won't get much above 40, if it hits that at all. I'm fine with 40 in the sun but with drizzles? It's outright frigid! After I do a second kidney bean trial if things go well I'll officially have them and winter will be looking a little more appealing with chili in my future. Especially on days like today.  :)

This is going to sounds stupid, but I wouldn't mind a little snow right now. It feels warmer with snow than it does with cold and rain.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
