      Re: Joyous June

      Morning all - well, I am outside on the deck with the dogs... girl dog decided that she wanted a little sun , so hopped up on the loveseat. Honestly, she never ceases to amaze me. She's still very 'unwell' but doesn't seems to notice. I am still sleeping on a pad with sleeping bag at night next to her crate - easier to give middle of the night meds, but this older body is starting to complain a little...

      Pauly - isn't it strange how the grief comes up at unexpected times? I say to go ahead and feel whatever you feel, and share that with Kell, that seems very healing. Star maybe right, the BF is afraid of what he can't control... sending you light ---

      Star, that's great news about walking the dog! What a perfect, low-stress way to form a bond and enjoy the good weather at the same time. Have fun! I will look for a favorite vegan site of mine, I think it is 'hurry the food up', amazing lentil salad recipes and tons of other stuff, and all of them come with interesting nutritional info and accurate time to prepare, love that. And do you follow Cookie and Kate? Beautiful food there.

      Lav, sorry about the boys, but your lunch sounds divine! I wish we were closer to some big water... but in the meantime there's a small lake close by... I'll try to get there soon. I loved the description of your teenage chickens having their own 'room'!

      Well today I finally have no clients, so there is time to catch up on my writing job and some housework... what a wild week this has been. SD is coming back tomorrow to drop off her little dog, we are taking care of The dog's ''cousin' until Thursday. I hope all things remain stable....

      Wishing all a light-filled Saturday ----

      Re: Joyous June

      Good evening friends!

      Another nice day here, love this weather
      Son & grandsons came by for a visit this afternoon, ha ha! The boys were excited because they had a cub scout event to go to tonight. It's good to see them maturing & happy. EB has grown SO tall I can almost rest my chin on top of his head - how did that happen?? Crazy spring growth spurts, ha ha!

      Star, watching sodium intake is at the top of the list for managing hypertension, but I'm sure you know that. Getting away from processed foods helps a lot, it's all loaded with salt.
      One take out Chinese meal used to put me out of commission for days.....can't handle the high sodium soy sauce & MSG
      Once again I made a pot of low sodium vegan noodle soup for dinner today & even YB loves it. You just have to keep trying recipes & tweaking them to suit your needs. Soon you will have an arsenal of fav recipes.

      Pauly, I hope your day went well & you are feeling stronger

      Cyn, as a matter of fact I was up twice last night with Maxie so I feel your pain. These poor dogs & poor us too.
      Good luck with your pup sitting, it's always a blast having 'company', ha ha. I hope you were able to catch up with things today as planned.

      Wishing everyone a peaceful night. Once again we are hearing about yet another terrorist attack in London, so sad.

      Lav

      Greetings friends,

      Hi Pauly!

      Where's Star & Cyn today?

      Nothing major happening here but we did make a little progress on the pergola project. Tomorrow the rain moves in so it will be a good time to catch up on indoor projects.
      Have a peaceful night everyone, thinking of the folks in London.

      Good morning...

      We had an overnight guest Saturday, and were kept so busy, no time for the computer. Two year olds are like whirlwinds, but so fun.

      Cyn, I will try that website and see what I can find for recipes, just experimenting right now. Sorry your dog is so sick, take care.

      Lav, glad your grandsons came over for a visit, I am sure you enjoyed seeing them. I have alot to learn and experiment with vegan but have made a decent start. Nice that the pergola is coming along.

      Pauly, take care and hope your week is easier.

      Lots of stuff to do around the house today after exercise. Really hot and humid today, summer has arrived. Have a good one.

      Re: Joyous June

      Morning friends,Star summer is officially here too but while I thrive in the heat its hard to do anything fun cuz its too hot for everyone else, can't take Lou to the park during the day,or for a walk,etc,sometimes I wish I'd never moved here..I came here out of desperation cuz we were living in Utah and the jobs just dried up,hubs came down got hired in a day came home and we packed our bags and kids and left but I wonder how different things would have turned out if I'd have just stayed there? I'm a huge believer though in that things go the way they're supposed to, if I'd have stayed there we wouldn't have Louie,wouldn't have met people we're supposed to have met,I dunno,since Jon's death I've been thinking too much about the past,present and future,things I could have changed,still could change,just too much in my mind,Cyn,you busy bee check in Lav,glad the pergola is making a move,wishing us all a nice AF Monday

      Re: Joyous June

      Morning all - wishing all a good start to the week. Sorry to be away yesterday, it was all just too much, with SD, her dog coming, my dog having a hard time, figuring out food for dinner, uuuugh! But girl dog is better today; she seemed to rally yesterday, and I finally got to sleep on a couch instead of on the floor, since she was strong enough to go up the 5 steps to the dog room. Who knows what the future holds...

      Pauly, it is interesting to look back, but I try to keep it to a minimum for myself -- too many 'should of' for me. This issue with my dog is teaching me to just stay focused on each moment, and try to make it the best moment. That's quite a gift!

      Star, I bet you were tired from a 2 year old overnight! I hope you can enjoy the weather, and find a handful of go-to recipes for the summer. Thank goodness for salads! Good luck with your hunt.

      Lav, glad to hear that the pergola is coming along. Absolutely nothing is moving forward here, ah well.

      Today is my birthday, and the great gift is that girl dog is better... I was worried that we would have to make the dreaded vet visit today, but it looks now instead like we will just have a quiet, productive day - which is perfect for me! Enough drama from last week - drama free is a great gift.

      Wishing everyone well and happy today ---

      Re: Joyous June

      Greetings friends!

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cyn!!!
      So glad to hear your dog is feeling better. I hope you can get some really decent sleep, I know what a gift that is in itself. LOL

      Star, I am happy to hear you survived your overnight guest. I know what energy suckers two year olds can be, ha ha!
      I just heard 90 degree heat & lots of humidity will be arriving here next Monday, oh boy.
      Since it's still coolish here I made a vegan lasagna tonight (recipe from Save Our Bones). It is really good & satisfying too. Keep experimenting, you will find what you like.

      Pauly, like Cyn I try not to think in terms of 'what could have been'. There's really little point in doing that, we can't change anything in the past. I do my best to make 'today' as good as possible so next week I can look back & say - Monday was a good day. Don't use up your energy on stuff you can't change. Keep your focus forward & aim for the best you can do

      Nothing exciting around here today, just a rainy Monday & more on the way tomorrow I believe.
      Sad to hear of the workplace shooting in Orlando today, 5 souls gone. It's long been my belief we need stronger gun control laws in this country. YB has always disagreed with me, so what else is new?
      Have a peaceful night everyone.

      Re: Joyous June

      Good morning...

      Pauly, interesting that you are reflecting on life choices as I have been doing that too. I was looking through old pics Sunday afternoon, and came upon a great one with my good friend who passed away in 2015, my daughter and myself, we were wrapped in sarongs for some reason, and laughing. Looked like a great time, but I also know that other things were going on too at that time too. Negative things. Regarding your move from Utah, you had to go where there were jobs. I know when we packed up and moved a few years ago it has been much easier to find jobs than where we used to live. I know that with grief everything is questioned, trying to make sense of events, put everything in its place, finding a pattern, a reason.

      Happy Birthday Cyn, hope your day was good! Lots going on and then having to plan dinner is stressful. My daughter is coming over tomorrow night with both kids and husband and she is not excited that we are vegan. She says, I need protein. So I have to think of something to make that everyone with like. Yikes, it IS stressful. Even though I know from reading FoK that plant based whole foods are about 10% protein and that is enough. The protein craze is too much, just like so much about diet we are told. Anyway, hope your visit was good. It is so hard as our pets age, you are doing a fantastic job. An extra pet in the house is alot, I know.

      Lav, another rainy day for you, well get ready, it was hot the last few days. Now we are set up for 70s and that is much better for outdoor activities. I agree about the gun laws, guns and emotional upset are bad partners, I can't stand all the violence that is happening. I have been avoiding the news, period. Being at home more I choose to protect myself from negativity and it is working well for me. I made a Morrocan Rice Pilaf for dinner and it was just OK, but my husband really liked it. Hmmm, wonder what I will make today! I bought the FoK cook book and have another by Dr. Neal Barnard, so have lots of recipes to try out. I am feeling lighter already, less hunger between meals, I wonder why? Plus, no stomach upset, it is really nice. Going out to lunch today with a group from exercise and I will order a salad and a tea, so I should be good. I feel positive and excited about this decision. Hope you have a great day.

      Tuesday to be AF for all of us.
