Well hello kiddies,
I'm back at work full time (week two) and feeling much better. Nice to be able to eat semi real food again.
An interesting thing happened on the way to the gastrointestinal system. The amounts are amazingly slimmer. I have learned that certain pasta and corn tortillas are no bueno for meo. While I have yet to get to the point of what they call "dumping syndrome", I sure have felt things not so wonderful.
Life changes right? or as I like to call it "Lots of Pain for No Gain". Catchy huh?
I have gotten to the point to where I will soon HAVE to go shopping for lack of clothing. Everything is falling off my ass. Literally!
So mail and writing. I have managed to get a few out. One swap and one to a friend. While the spirit is willing the actual putting my butt in a seat and doing it is lacking as by the time I'm ready to get there, my body is telling me "sleep, it's a good thing".
September is going to be a turn around. We are getting out this weekend and heading to the coast. Point Reyes Station and surrounding areas are calling my name. While it's Labor Day weekend it's also this guys B-Day on Sat.
So off the the Farmers Market (doing a LOT of this lately). Be careful watching all of those food documentaries. They will scare the toxic sugar laden poop right out of you. Because of the things I have been reading/watching we are now purchasing as much as the budget will allow. The trip to Point Reyes will be a two-fer. GOOD meat (beef and chicken) and lots of organic veggies. Kaylee is getting into it and that's a good thing. Garden next year. A bit to late to get that going for this go round.
So how many of you folk grow something edible? Do you partake in the local foods? Do you buy seasonally or the garbage they serve up in the produce section of the local supermarket (not judging)?
I also have been procuring goodies for the end of the year (2nd Anniversary) giveaway for the blog. So far looking good.
Welcome back. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Happy Birthday to you and I hope you have a wonderful trip to the coast. This hard clay that passes for dirt here is too hard to grow anything in, so to answer your question - no, I don't grow anything, edible or otherwise. Do weeds count? I know we should eat more fruits and veggies, locally grown, of course, but we're lazy that way. I'm sure it will bite us in the ass someday, too.ReplyDelete
Thank you - we actually have pretty descent soil around here. Remember you can always build a raised bed with 4 pieces of wood :)Delete
You have literally been through the ringer. I'm glad to hear you are starting to feel alive again. A little get-away will definitely nourish your soul. I too, have been on the hunt for more organic fruits and veggies. Unfortunately, we don't have much locally grown produce. As far as I know, we only have one local farm; Gilcrease Orchard. I've only been there once. I would love to have my own garden but I'm not sure I have a green thumb and the thought of big giant spiders and other bugs invading my garden creeps me out.ReplyDelete
This is where we are going to have fun with Kaylee. She has been checking out the local nursery - Green Acres. This is a good excuse to buy Lady Bugs and Praying Mantis. Fun for the whole family :)Delete
Welcome back, Derrick, and early Birthday greetings. I do not grow anything edible or otherwise but do buy locally grown produce when it's available. Have fun on the coast and watch those tan lines! :DReplyDelete
I am SO looking forward to getting out of town and into the fog in the bay.Delete
Ah, yes, we've had a lot of fog horns blaring the last few days, too. I guess you won't have to pack your SPF85 tanning lotion. heh Enjoy your time away and have a great Birthday!! :)Delete
