I was once told that I could do anything I wanted in life if I were willing to pay the price. . .
Over the last couple of months of moving, I have done what I wanted! I somehow decided that eating things like dairy and gluten, snacking on honey roasted peanuts and eating irregularly were just fine. They haven’t been! I gained 5 lbs, my joints ached and my intestinal tract was VERY unhappy with me. Even worse my blood sugar was so out of whack that it turned me into something of a whack job to live with! (more…)
After a couple of false starts, it looks like Spring is really here. The days are warmer, tulips are pushing up, and the sparrows are starting to arrive.
Spring means that we will be planting a garden soon. We know from experience that planting anything outside before Mother’s day is just setting yourself up for heartbreak! So for right now we are prepping the greenhouse for planting next week. Lots of weeds, dust and dirt to move around.
Which is why I know it is Spring. Besides all the dirt and dust, every plant and tree Prescott is in bloom. Or at least that is what my sinuses think. I can’t breath, my nose is alternatively running or completely stuffed up and I seem to have a chronic headache.
I have tried everything to make me breath better from local bee honey to stinging nettles and a neti pot. The neti pot worked best. Unfortunately, you have to be a contortionist to use it and/or be willing to be drenched by the time you are done. (more…)
