Hello Patty,

I have up and down days but the depression is lifting and the eating plan helps with the ibs. I just have to be careful to get enough sleep (too little ramps up the anxiety levels), exercise which helps the good neurons and to take enough time for me.

It's a nice day. The temp on the computer says 71. I think it is hotter than that here.

Yesterday I started a new book in the after noon and finished it this morning. Good to just take it easy a couple of days. Now I'll play on the computer for a while.

Hi Everyone

Thunderheads building so hopefully we will get some rain.

I don't have big plans today, just a few odd jobs. What are your plans for today?

I miss Jan and Louise. I hope all is well with you and you post when you can because we all miss you.

I have diddly squat for news today. Been very quiet in this part of the woods.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Hi Paulissa, I haven't seen a post from you yet, but Patty says you are here and I am very glad to know that. I've missed you here.

I did fairly well yesterday, I got my water, moved a bit and ate sensibly, just a bit off what I should have.

It is cool and comfortable this morning. The nights have been fairly warm lately. I am comfortable with a blanket when the fan is running. I love the fan, without it my room would be like a steam oven.

I checked my garden last evening as I went out to water the plants. The peas in the first planted container are doing very well, there is one squash in that planter that is coming along nicely. A few of the carrots survived the marauding bugs, but none of the lettuce. I will have to replant around the edges of that container.

In the second container everything is coming up and very lavishly. My tomatoes are getting huge and wonder of wonders, the Kabocha squash is coming up. That is a surprise because I had just gathered the seeds when I cut the squash for curried pumpkin soup. Those seeds were really fresh.

I cleaned out the fridge on Friday evening and put mushrooms and red bell peppers in the food dryer. I already bagged the strawberries and the banana. The rhubarb is nice and dry now and I will bag it today.

I will shred some cabbage and slice carrots and load them into the food dryer today before I leave for Seattle. I have two doctor's appointments tomorrow and will be back home tomorrow evening. By that time I will have more veggies for eating and for drying. I am aiming for a nice soup right now. Of course there are other reasons to dry food.

I know that when I move this fall I will have much less storage space than I have here so drying foods is going to considerably broaden my selection of meals during the coming winter. I have experimented before and found that the foods I dried were very important.

I want to get some zucchini and some tomatoes for drying while I am in Seattle this week. I will go to Uwajimaya to pick up some of the more exotic fruits, such as mango and papaya. I know they will have other fruits there and I will try some of them as well.

Last time I was in Seattle DS got some heirloom mini-tomatoes for me. They were fabulous. I am going to get some more of those as well. I also want to get some of the delightful juices he gets for me. Tropical carrot opened a whole new world for me. He also got some mango nectar and mixed it with Simply Lemonade/with raspberries. That makes a very good drink too. I need to restock some of my oriental base foods too. I find it interesting that many of Chef Meg's recipes call for things that I find in Uwajimaya and nowhere else. I don't shop at Whole Foods because their prices are too high. I find the organic section of Fred Meyer, (a Kroger store), has most of the things I need.

I am trying to buy both organic and local these days. I am not comfortable with the GE foods, nor the GMO's. I am quite happy to purchase fruits and vegetables that aren't as pretty, but have better nourishment and flavor. I just don't need the chemicals in GE and GMO foods. I would feel so much better if I knew just what foods are organic. I think if the foods are modified either genetically or chemically they should be identified.

I am sure that one of the reasons for my grandparents and great grandparents longevity was their food was natural and they grew and preserved it themselves. They gathered seeds from family and friends and when they harvested they saved seeds for the next year. Do you recall your grandparents observing this custom?

Enough for now. I'll see you later,

Love, Judy emoticon
