Good Morning Company Girls!
Well, it's finally Friday...it's been a week filled with appointments everyday and this is the first day without any.....I'm sitting here trying to decide just what to do.....do I clean up the house (which desperately needs it), do I do some laundry, do I go and visit my mom (who I haven't been able to visit for awhile), do I try a new bread recipe, do I make some Irish Soda bread to take to my mom, do I just sit and work on my quilt....or..do I just sit and stare off into space?
hmmmmm...decisions, decisions...what's a girl to do.....
Lately, I've been battling a lot of fatigue and two health practitioners suggested it could have something to do with my thyroid (which stopped working years ago and for which I ingest a small little pill each day to compensate for it)....last year they upped the dosage of said pill so I really didn't want to go that route again..........so I went to dear old google....I think you could find out just about anything on google, don't you? Anyways, after living with this for about fourteen years, I actually found out that there are a few things I shouldn't be eating!! Who knew! You'd think that doctors might mention this little fact, don't you? At least 5 different sites mentioned the same list of negative foods that weren't a good thing for my non-functioning thyroid! Some are much easier to live with then others but the biggest ones are canola oil and anything with soya in it.......do you know that all our manufactured breads, salad dressings, a lot of condiments, chocolate bars all have canola oil, or soya oil, or soya lecithin (I can't even say the word properly!)...this makes eating somewhat of a challenge! So...I've been looking up recipes for homemade salad dressings, even homemade Miracle Whip, if you can believe it...and I made my first loaf of whole wheat bread this week! Fortunately, and my son will be pleased to hear this....hubby unpacked my bread maker that said son gave to me a year ago Christmas and I finally put it to good use...and it will get a lot of use...no more store bought bread....I'm tired of feeling tired!
On another note, Maya got to Costa Rica safely and is really enjoying herself.....she said she was nervous at the first flight but the second was a piece of cake! Oh no, I think we've created a monster!...now, whenever Don and I go away she's going to be in a bad mood cause she wants to go too! I'm really glad that she's been able to have this experience...she says the weather is great and laughed (she called on skype) when I said we were preparing fora snow blizzard this week! She is doing a lot of maintenance type stuff this week but apparently next week they work with the kids....I just pray every day that she'll be a blessing to someone that day. She's a good kid.
Daughter-in-law Jenn had a check-up at the doctor's yesterday...poor kid is overwhelmed with nauseousness and dizziness...but she did hear the hearbeat..160/minute and the doctor puts the due date the first few days of August...a summer baby....isn't that great! They usually don't have snow in Parry Sound in August so hopefully that wont be a problem, this time!
I guess that's all for now....hope you all have a great weekend!
Take care now!
