Amazing that Canada is having temps like these.

 

Actually, not amazing at all....in fact, southern Ontario has very hot, humid summers -- often in the 90s with a significant humidex. Yep, we ain't all in igloos....   ;)   Don't retire here ..  .....June through October can be uncomfortably hot...

 

 

Now, the Yukon...well, 'tis another story...

Amazing that Canada is having temps like these.  And here I was thinking of a possible retirement place to avoid the extreme heat when I get older!  ^_^

 

It is very hot here in Boston but the humidity level is at 49% also...which is drier than it's been for awhile.  I thought it more bearable today than the past week because it was like soup outside then.  I detest humidity.  It's gonna break, poeple, this coming week-end so hang in there everyone! 

 

Hi All...Have to join in as I still aspire to retire up North....Montana near the boarder...or Vancouver Island....yo Pete...how do I defect?

I rarely use my iMac since Superman gave me his iPad. When I post with the iPad I don't even see the options for size, fonts, emoticons, etc. I miss those features but I'm lazy. Plus I can't sit at the computer for long (mostly laziness). Loved the cookies (doh!).

Hey everyone! I found the Yeti! Apparently he has found employment doing the voice for Garmin. You know....usually you get a woman's voice telling you to "turn left in 1 mile". So my husband recently discovered he can change the voice and one of the options is YETI!! I kid you not :P

And Garmin is based here in Kansas! Is the Yeti here? Just working for Garmin and living in the neighborhood?

So this is my last morning in the 5-star hotel in historic Philly. I am finally to the point where I can walk around and find necessities (like Starbucks) with out looking at my phone map. Its been interesting, and I definitely learned that you do not need a car if you live in a city. I parked my car in the garage the afternoon I arrive and have not pulled it out since. This might be the longest stretch in my life with out driving since getting my license... well not count my honeymoon cruise. smile.gif

IT has been interesting for sure. For example this AM I was standing on line a Starbucks and a woman walked up to me to tell me that she is scared of werewolves. Yeah... So I guess that is information I needed to know. Not sure why, but maybe I should document it some place just in case?

Been out fussing with the feathered fiends.  The tom turk keeps attacking one of the hens and he's so big I'm afraid he'll hurt her.  I picked her up to protect her and he followed me around, staring at her.  I put the chickens back in the pen and left the turks in the yard for a while.  They kept flying over the fence and finally one of them flew off into the woods where she stood on a branching saying "ummmm...hey....um.....mom?....hey".  Eventually she jumped off the branch and tramped through the underbrush back to me.

 

Once the chickens put themselves in the coop I shoved the turks back in the pen.

 

Now I'm drinking.

 

I think it's time to do in the meaties -- the roosters are becoming more aggressive towards each other and I don't imagine they'll get much bigger.  They're already huge, mammoth when they stand next to Mulberry the tiny little silkie.

 

Did I give you guys this link? http://www.infobarrel.com/Blackberry_Vodka

 

I'm drinking the plum version of that.

OK, I'm starting a new blog to journal the sailing stories and I'm calling it "The Other Woman". Whad'ya think?  It's kind of a play on the joke that a woman has to realize that her man's boat will always take the majority of his time and attention.

 

When I have a few entries I'll post a link on fb.

    • BOBS RED mill makes an all purpose flour with no rice  try Quinoa flour  buckwheat flour tapioca  chic pea flour coconut flour almond meal ground into a flour  flax meal all these things make great " toast"  and healthy alternatives to too much rice flour yummy
    • Oh yeah. I'm 6 months in and still have bad days, even though I know I'm not eating gluten. It takes a long time to heal. I have been on here a lot in the past 6 months venting because I didn't feel good. I just posted today about how tired I still am. Everyone has basically said the same thing - give it time. Be patient. It can take a long time. Some people said it can take a year. Hang in there.
    • Ok, so I have another question for all of you professional Celiacs. I read an article recently that talked about a study that was done on people with Celiac's disease, which said that some of them (a small number) had high levels of arsenic in their systems because of all of the rice products that they eat. Now, I don't eat a ton of rice, but we do have gluten-free pasta a couple times a week, my son and I like rice Chex, and I know there's brown rice flour in the pizza crusts I use and in the gluten-free bread that I eat. How worried about arsenic poisoning do we need to be? I'm not downing rice at every meal but I do eat it daily, I'm sure. I rarely eat rice, rice. Usually it's the rice flour that's in things. Is this one more thing to keep me up at night? Because now I'm like, "Oh this is great. I'm trading gluten for arsenic." I need to eat carbs. If I just eat fruits and veggies and meat I'll lose weight which stresses me out. I want to be able to eat toast with peanut butter and eggs but I worry my toast is killing me. Am I being a little dramatic.
    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • I have this same problem! My body seeks carbs constantly due to not being able to find ones I can have. I'm allergic to wheat, oats, soy, nuts and citric acid. I get hives head to toe when I consume these products. Now we noticed I don't tolerate rice. I don't get hives, but it's the guy wrenching pain and it doubles me over. Definitely wakes me up night too. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto disease before I got all these food allergies too. It was the same for my sister. Her thyroid when crazy and then she ended up with celiacs. I did the allergy testing and then the elimination diet with reintroduced and still reacted so mine was found to be a true allergy and I cannot have these foods anymore at all.  So for me, I can confirm it is in fact possible rice! Because I haven't had those other foods for well over a year because I can't.  One thing I've noticed is with rice, manufacturers add things to it because it's normally stripped down pretty raw and if they didn't add, there's not much nutritional value to rice. So, my theory is, the added stuff is what's making the reaction in my opinion.
