Weekend Wind-down

Gluten-free day 4.  So far, no light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t an oncoming freight train.

I think the worst part of the detox is that it feels like things are getting worse instead of better.  More pain, more fatigue as my body tries to rid itself of what it perceives as toxic.  Almost of out of Kombucha, and I don’t think Gina’s new batch will be ready until later in the week.  I might have to pick up some commercially made at the Food Coop tomorrow.  I’m really liking the Kombucha.  Sort of like apple cider vinegar soda.  I do, however, always feel a little better after drinking it, so maybe it is helping detox my liver.

Yesterday was Clermont, the first Sheep and Wool show of the season.   We drove down with Erin and then met up with Lisa & Dave.   It was a cold and rainy day.  It figures that this was the first year that they didn’t plan a rain date.  Previous years’ featured warm to very hot (over 90 degrees 2 years ago), usually with a blue sky and tons and tons of flowers.  This year, not so much.  The field was soggy and muddy, the rain didn’t stop until after we left the grounds.  However, that said, it was great to see Jessica (now from NH), and Leann (who loved the sweater I made for Logan).  Unfortunately, I gave away the sweater before I could take a picture of it.  I’ll ask Leann if she’ll be nice enough to photograph it for me.  Also ran into Diane and Rich, Tina and Steve, and others I’m forgetting to mention because of the Brain Frogs.

And….there was fiber.  Of course, I left with some.   There will be pics tomorrow (I promise).

Today was….well….it was.

I had trouble sleeping last night.  Too tired to sleep is all I can think of, and finally drifted off at 2:00 am, despite being in bed at 11:00.  So, 11:00 am, I groggily dragged myself downstairs.  Tim is embracing the idea of cooking wonderful gluten-free meals, and served me free-range eggs scrambled with cheese and home-made salsa and a side of oatmeal.

A while later, we planted the iris that my sister gave me when we were at her house last week.  There turned out to be 5 nice-sized clumps, and they’ve been planted under the dining room windows.  I can’t wait until they bloom.

Still on my dark-green, leafy veggie kick, I prepped salad greens for the week.  I find that I’m more likely to eat a salad if the greens are already cut up and washed.  Then I started to think about dinner.

Dinner turned out to be dill and garlic roasted chicken, with a side of quinoa and roasted rapini and a chicken jus.  I’m really getting into the cooking thing again.  Not sure if I’ll repeat roasting the rapini.  I like it better sauteed with garlic and olive oil.  But Quinoa is turning out to be my go-to grain.  Tomorrow I’ll stop at the coop and stock up on gluten-free grains and flours.

And now to watch the new season of Dr. Who (DVR’d from last night)
