Extremely Busy Doing Many VITs (Very Important Things)
Like what? Like this:
We bought a dehydrator (Nesco 500) and have dried everything in our kitchen, plus everything in our entire garden. I've eaten my body-weight (more on that later) in dried pineapple. OMG. Can. Not. Get. Enough. Pineapple.
And dried kiwi. Wow, it's addicting. And it's crunchy -- who knew?
We bought a water distiller, too. Not sure I'm wild about that... now we have to add minerals back in. Looking for the right supplement for that now. On the other hand, you should see the crap that comes out of our water. OMG.
I went primal. Really, I did. It was confusing. So I did the Whole30 which is so strict, it's not confusing at all. The most miserable six pounds I ever lost. The best thing about doing the Whole30 is getting off the Whole30. Now I'm primal again. Or am I Paleo? I can't keep them straight. No bread, no grains, no legumes, yes dairy. I miss beans and rice, but I feel better. And no sugar except that one delectable T. of raw honey in my coffee. Honestly, it makes life worth living.
We might rent a place in the country and I might get a cow. A real cow. And more chickens. And bees.
I found a Kentucky prepper group and met up with them. We all used fake names and talked about TEOTWAKI. That was fun.
I have at least 30 posts started that need finishing.
My kombucha would win an award -- it is PERFECT. And I have some great bottles, found 'em cheap!
I learned a few new recipes on the Whole30 forum that are excellent. Don't worry, I'll be sharing them. Yeah, I'm cooking now. Hal stopped... very sad. (More on that later, too. I can't give everything away.)
My 20yo son and I are going to do Crossfit:
Hahahahahahaha. No, there will be no pictures.
I watched and filmed a police raid on a local head shop. I would have reported the crime but... all the cops were in the store stealing stuff. Seriously not funny. There will be more on that later, you betcha.
Just watched some of the RNC. Gag me, those people are such sheeple. Baaaaaa. Better 4 more years of Obama than 8 of Romney. Not that I'm voting for Obama -- forget that. If I vote, I'll vote for Gary "Legalize Everything" Johnson. IF I vote.
I'm up to season 4 of Weeds. Conrad is HOT.
We made a compost bin. Took like an hour tops and now I'm composting everything. One of those unfinished posts has detailed instructions. It's so easy, I'm going to make a second one.
We took my mom to a Mexican restaurant for her birthday dinner and I spoke Spanish the whole night. The Mexican waiters were SO nice. They all told me how great my Spanish was. You KNOW they were lying, but I loved it!
I'm going to start doing WAPF things: having meetings, giving talks, eating food, drinking kombucha with other people in broad daylight. 'Bout time! I might even go to the WAPF convention in Santa Clara in November -- that would be such a gas. We'll see... saving my schekels. Plus, I'd get to stay with my friend, Molly Fox. (Hopefully, she will talk me out of the insane Crossfit idea)
I'm committed to getting more sleep: blue lights off at 10pm, not up before 6am. The more I read, the more I realize that sleep is the #1 health aid. No sleep, no health. Doesn't matter what else you do. Or don't do.
There you have it, the Cliff Notes version of my life for the last month and a half. Jam-packed, all good -- plus I left out a whole bunch of stuff! There's so much more. And look at the time: I can just squeeze in a Weeds before bed. Pura vida!
