The Day After----oh no I ATE it ALL :(

THANKSGIVING!!! I am thankful!! I also went on a terrific food binge at my daughters house. I ate it all. The clam dip, spinach dip, stuffing, sweet potatoes, her amazing baked caramelized apples in pie crust and pecan pie.

I think I almost killed myself. All the pain I have been free of came back. I think I have a food hangover because I feel just terrible. I wonder how long it will take to recover? I am NOT doing this again. I thought to myself it is only one day right? One plate.. one pig out...

OOOWWWWWWWW my hands burn, I hurt all over, I am burping, bloated, exhausted and stiff.

Food has power. Food can bring life or bring sickness and this diet has really proved that to me. The proof really is in the pudding.

Next....

I think I am just over FB. I am tired of selfies and scrolling for hours at pictures of food and whatever and nothing really substantive to read. I think that maybe FB makes me dumb and dumber like bingo speak in texting.  "Can I c u b 4 lunch"? Bingo right? I get it, we don't have to type as much, but my spelling has always been bad and now it's atrocious.

Next....

Back to blogging. I have become a little lazy and need to get my camera out and start thinking of something to actually WRITE about. It's good for me to exercise some creative thought. My attention span is shorter with a habit of one liners. I need the discipline of reading and writing to maintain my brain function at this age. How about you? I really enjoy reading blogs.I think maybe I have my New Years resolutions during Thanksgiving but what difference does that make? We can eat dessert first and make resolutions anytime, right? The only dessert I may eat will have to be paleo....

Next.....

Birds to be precise, finches. I am getting so interested in these little birds!! Maybe obsessed is more like it. They are charming funny little creatures and so fun to watch. I have dreams of aviary's and acquiring more species and and and....lots to write about. Coming soon.




Sounds to me like it's time for pages and categories and all the different ideas to be set up here for easy browsing and that will take a bit of effort on my part won't it? But nothing worth having comes easy right?

OK so now your job is to hold me accountable for this bit of rambling, and to turn it into something of substance.

I am grateful too. I am very grateful for life and everything I am blessed with in this wonderful at times chaotic world we live in. I am finding a need deep in my soul to get away from the mess of news and fear, instead focusing on the good gifts from the God I love who will care for me. He has always cared for me. He is a good good father. Fear is from the enemy. My life today is full of blessings and I want to enjoy, create, thank, bless, and be blessed.

I know how hard this will be, so I'm not going to be "accountable" for your actions. This was like an early New Year Resolution list. I know you can do it because you believe you can and there's pain involved if you don't.
I ate too much as well... and I'm tired of FB so I will be following you, shortly. I won't be getting any birds though... I have enough to take care of around here.
I promise to blog more. Love ya....

Ah the food hangover....you are so right my friend. I ate too Mich too and have felt it. It's almost lunch time and I am determined not to eat until I am actually hungry and not a couple of pieces of pie, so they won't go to waste. I spent an hour looking at a rare seed catalog that came in the mail. Great for my resolve because it was filled with beautiful fruits and vegetables instead of pictures of cookies and cakes. I have always enjoyed your blog and will look forward to reading it. No birds for me either, it would give my little feral cat a start at a life of crime.

Yes. I am very, very sick of FB as well. Blech.
I love birdwatching. I often think about getting a bird as a pet (I had many when I was growing up) but I always feel badly keeping a bird in a cage. It seems so sad to me. So, I keep my birdfeeders full and just watch them out my window. They are such fascinating little things. So beautiful. :)

Hope this Christmas season is treating you well!

Hello, lady!

Hope you and yours are well. I have been MIA for months and months and months. Up to my eyeballs in renovations. Have not had the time nor strength to blog, but I am feeling better finally and hopefully will be finished with this house before I am 90!

Just wanted to stop by and give you a cyber hug.

Much love,

Sheila :-)
