I'm fine Colleen -- we live near the beach.

 

This photo is really dramatic...but the important part to remember is

 

The big equipment has arrived...now the firefighters can get the situation under control :)

 

I love our Firefighters and all first responders - everywhere!

sons of bill - wrote a song called 'santa ana winds'  - it's pretty great (and they are pretty nice fellers, too)  check 'em

 

tonight is:  skip ;)

 

last night i made swedish meatballs w/noodles <would have been good with zoodles, tho) and carrots.  i accidently got whole wheat pasta instead of regular for the hubs (most nights i just make all gluten-free pasta, but sometimes i gotta spoil him) anyways, back to the wheat:  he b%$@#ed so hard about the whole wheat!  i was like wth!  lololz what is this GAME of LOVE that i CANNOT WIN !!!????   ^_^

 

still fooling with house painters.  this is how it goes:  i have a list of painters referred from various sources.  i call a painter, and he tells me he is booked through till july.  we paint a little more on the house.  i call the next one on the list.  he tells me an outrageous price and then tells me they can't touch the level of workmanship that my husband has already done (basically, we're going to rob you and do crappy work) i tell them how much money i have to spend.  we paint a little more on the house.  i go buy a ladder stabilizer and five gallons of paint.  i call the next painter on the list.  tells me he'll calll me back between 5-6 pm.  no call.  we paint a little more on the house.  the second painter calls me back.  they now know how much $$ we have to spend and are determined to separate us from it.   they want to come and and do a REALLY crappy job.  we paint a little more on the house..................

Lisa -- close to the beach, but the winds full of dirt, smoke and "melted countertops" are heading in your direction. Turn off the a/c if it is drawing in outside air. Take care!

Winds are going again up in the North OC . Our outside thermometer says 108 degrees (but it is in the sun).

I am going outside to fry an egg on the sidewalk!

We have no A/C....we close all the windows and spend most of the time in the bottom floor walkout -- lots cooler down there.

 

Stay cool -- 102 in the shade here and the winds are kicking a bit :(

truth be told, I never liked whole wheat pasta when I was still "one of the unenlightened"...probably a texture thing, I think. 

 

J never minds the gluten-free pasta.He likes the jovial and the barilla best. I agree!

A new morning here in Sunny San Diego!

 

Thankfully the winds are switching directions today which will bring the much needed cooler air - hoping for gentle wind speeds -- to help our firefighters get control of the mess this ass%$@# or ass%$@#s created. 

 

As usual with these wildfires the reports of houses being destroyed are heartbreaking -- a friend from HS's older sister's home is gone this morning, heartbreaking but she and the others will rebuild -- lives can't be replaced -- a body was found in close to one of the clusters of homes that burned -- waiting for the news that it was a homeowner that decided to protect their own property.  If you receive an evacuation order for whatever reason -- take heed and live to complain about the displacement.  Oops...hoping off the soapbox.

 

Last night we had breakfast for dinner -- only niece and nephew as guests -- their SDPD parents were off doing evacs -- this is a detective and an investigator -- one of which hasn't been in uniform on the streets for over fifteen years -- this is how stretched our emergency personnel is :(

 

Today I get to watch another nephew, my "angel baby" (6'5" 24 year old loves when I call him that in public) graduate from SDSU with three degrees...check out his functional art:

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps :wub:

:( wow - really scary out there, huh.  i hope everybody complies with evac orders, although i don't know how i would act under the circumstances!  it would be hard to leave my home on a moment's notice :(

 

your nephew looks like an 'angel baby'!  congrats!!  (and that is one funky chair lolz - have you tried it out?)  :D

 

tonight's dinner will be a crap shoot.  hubs snapped a front spring in dayton oh and ran it all the way down to knoxville without realizing it was broken.  he must have an army of guardian angels.  an.  army.  of.  them.  

 

being a trucker's wife is so romantic, when you're out there at 3 am and he whispers softly in your ear, "baby?  would you hold this?"  - it's the flashlight................... :rolleyes:

nope haven't tried his chairs yet...the two on his website are in a fu-fu gallery in Santa Monica -- hoping some rich movie star types want to order -- maybe when he's sold enough he'll make one for his dear old auntie -- I like the tri-pod one, not the rocker, but don't tell him that ;)

Wednesday we found some Georges on sale at a really great price the first time we stopped in the new Wal-Mart Marketplace that opened near us. (which puts us at 3 Wal-Marts we can grocery shop at within 10 minutes from home. SO SPOILED!) We cooked one last night and will can him today. We'll probably make dinner of leftovers. We've been weeding today and getting ready to plant, which hopefully we'll do before the end of the day. Just getting a break during the hottest part of the day, going out to pick up a few things then going to get George into jars then head back out when the sun is heading west.

We were at Costco yesterday and they were doing a bunch of gluten free samples again. One of them was Tortilla Land tortillas, which are amazingly delicious. We'll have quesadillas tonight. Can't wait. I may have spoiled my dinner a little though. Costco also now sells huge boxes of Glutino oreos which somehow ended up in the cart and I just couldn't resist and wait until after dinner. It's a good thing that being gluten free teaches restraint or I'd be worse than broke shopping there. :ph34r:

Just received a reply to an email I sent to Love2Travel and she reports that on Wednesday, they will leave for their new home in Croatia!

 

How exciting to be starting a new life!! She said she'll be in touch very soon.

 

I made a menu for myself because I am on a diet. :ph34r: 

 

Focusing on the ingredients of the Meditteranean diet --or if you just look at it, basically, what my Grandmother ate and she was healthy.

 

Once absorption kicked in, I packed on the lbs. :( This was good in one way, but not so great in another.

Seems stoopit to take 3 years to heal and get my health on track and then, be at risk for heart disease & diabetes (which runs in my family) just because of my excessive carb (and bacon and cheese and gelato)  intake. 

 

Meal planning helps me focus, so I'm giving you this week's offerings at my house. :D You will notice the absence of gelato. :( but hey, when I 

hit the 10 lbs. mark, I may eat a tub of it. (or not, depends.) lol

 

Tonight: pasta puttanesca (got a gorgeous basil plant begging to be used) 

Monday: turkey meatloaf, sweet potatoes and asparagus

Tuesday: Tuscan white bean soup with spicy chicken sausage and escarole

Wednesday: Lemon chicken with tarragon, zucchini and summer squash with tomatoes.

Thursday: portuguese kale soup

Friday: white pizza with garlic and broccoli (hey, I'm not a saint)

Saturday: veal chop, sauteed chard and tossed salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

Hey, I would live at your house with that meal plan. It sounds amazing! And I'd be happy to eat all your gelato for you. Sure, I'd be happy to lose some weight, but I'm also perfectly happy to stay this size forever too. Whatever. I'd rather be fat and happy than skinny and living life without cupcakes and gelato. :lol:

 

I'm making chicken something tonight. I have an actual plan, I just forget what it is. We picked up a McCormick recipe pack at the store that sounded delicious and it says something about thighs, which my husband hates (he hates lots of delicious things <_<) so I'll just make it with breasts instead. He claims that he's just always been more of a breast man than a leg/thigh man and I can't change that for him. I say if you're only enjoying half the bird you're missing half the fun. :P

I do not expect to be skinny, Addy, (and I did not look especially attractive as skin and bones when I was sick) ....but I do not want to be 45 lbs.overweight either.

 

I don't think I'll be unhappy giving up a few goodies for a few weeks, and if I want something, I can always have one of these brownies.

They are not very fattening, but still tasty.

I suspect my physical therapy, pain level and energy levels will benefit  if I am not struggling with excess weight right now. That is more important to me at this point than gelato. ^_^

    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
    • Former lifeguard and competitive swimmer here. There could be some potential issues, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Here's why I think that: 1. The water volume in a standard 25m pool is enormous (hundreds of thousands of liters). Assuming there are people swimming in the pool, any hot spots are likely to get dissipated pretty fast, so you'd have to swallow a lot of water to get a serious gluten hit. 2. By law (at least in Canada), the water inflow and outflow rates must be such that the volume of water that makes up the pool must be replaced every 24 hours in public pools. There are always some dust bunnies, bandaids and whatnot trapped in the corners at the bottom of the pool, but the main volume you're interacting with gets replaced regularly, so no build-up. Public pools are also vacuumed on a regular basis. For cleaning agents, typically on bleach and baking soda are used in my experience. Private pools are another story and there no guarantees. 3. Most public pools prohibit food on deck due to public health regulations and/or wanting to avoid cleaning up messes. This limits potential sources of gluten to personal care products on other people's skin. Considering the volume of a pool, I'm having trouble imagining this resulting in a significant exposure, but I have also swam in packed outdoor pools that taste like sunblock, so who knows. I would definitely worry if people were eating hot dogs or shotgunning beers in the pool though (definitely a thing at backyard pool parties). 4. Pool chlorine can be either tablet based, liquid based or gas based depending on the pool. Either way, it is bleach-based (sometimes literal bleach gets dumped in smaller volume bodies like hot tubs when the chlorine is off). The pool I worked at, which was newer used liquid injection, and I would imagine this is true of most newer facilities (gas is undesirable as it can leak and kill people because it is odourless - some older pools still have this set-up though). Tablets are more common in backyard pools, and it's possible that these might contain gluten in some form (I have no idea and have never checked).  For reference, the concentration of chlorine in a swimming pool should be between 0.5-5 ppm, depending on the pool temperature and your region (lower for colder pools, higher for hot tubs).  So, I guess my opinion would be that a public pool is most likely pretty safe from a gluten perspective. Chlorine (or rather, the volatile gases resulting from the reaction of chlorine with biological waste in the pool) is an irritant though - occupational asthma rates in lifeguards and swimmers is quite high. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. My dad cannot swim anymore because he becomes ill for a week with severe upper respiratory symptoms (open water swimming is ok). I get similar, but less severe symptoms (part of the reason I don't swim anymore, sadly). Not sure what symptoms you experienced, but something to consider. http://www.ncceh.ca/documents/practice-scenario/pool-chlorination-and-closure-guidelines
