little things.

Why is it when a person needs someone to pay attention to something, the other person goes on the defensive? Their answer is obviously NO to your request AND they attack and dig their feet in to make sure you know they don’t care about what was requested? I swear relationships suck.

Had $20 for groceries yesterday. I bought onions, eggs, cornmeal, ketchup, Gorten’s fish, brown rice, yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese slices and dish soap.

Dinner was a wonderful pot of lentils.

I used the whole package for 2 days worth of food. Into a large pot, I rinsed and poured the lentils, added 8 1/2 c water, 2 lg carrots thinly sliced, 2 lg stalks of celery sliced, 1 onion sliced, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 4 chicken boullion cubes, 2 tbs minced garlic, salt, pepper, and 2 tbs worchestershire sauce. Cook till lentils are tender and veges are cooked through. It really was good. Steve added pepper sauce and sour cream to his. YUM.

As I was typing this up I wondered if the worchester sauce had gluten in it. I have no idea. I have decided to go gluten free as much as possible. It seems to be making a big difference but I’m still learning. My ankles are not swelling like they were and my hands are pain free for 2 days now.  I was warned about a detox headache and it is beginning.

This morning we have steel cut irish oats, coffee :0).

I’m not going to update the other things until I know for certain what’s happening. You’ll have to wait if you care… love to all.


About Morning Knits

I believe in and practice positive living. I love YARN, music, bird watching, history, gemstones, and gardening. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its bounds. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a Kingdom focused non denominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and and a rescued kitten. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, and obesity. That last is hard to say. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow go.
