Well, even though it has been warmer the last few days, I am stuck inside at a desk all day, so all I get is my drive to and from work to enjoy the outdoors. Since the time change, it is really only my ride to work that I see anything because it is dark out by the time I leave work at 6. But, to the point, because this isn't a negative blog, I was really enjoying the colors in the trees as I drove in this morning. It was a great morning, not too cold, beautiful sky and FRIDAY!!!
I don't really have any plans for the weekend. I am thinking about doing something with mom on Saturday and I am going to be babysitting my neighbor's girls on Sunday and I want to try a new food this weekend as well. I am excited about slowly growing my range of foods that I eat. I found some cheese made from rice (I guess similar to a ricemilk idea) that I want to try, or my mom got me some almond butter (of all the nuts that is supposed to be the one that I could maybe try) so if I make bread when I get home tonight (thank God for bread machines!!) I might be making a cheese sandwich or trying some toast with almond butter-I guess we will see if I am brave enough to actually go through with it or not. I hate it when I feel bad, so I don't want to be crazy, but if I don't ever try anything, I won't ever improve my diet, so it has to start somewhere. Which reminds me, so far still no issues with the chamomile tea!! Since I added eggs back (I just try to keep it at a minimum, use organic, and so far have only used it to make Zuchinni bread and oatmeal cookies) and wonderful sweet potatoes I have really felt like I have a better balance to my diet already. (Which looking back that was like in March that I added sweet potatoes, so I would say it is time for something new!!) I also have added Bryers All Natural Vanilla ice cream and my joy is back!!! (I am an ice-cream LOVER!!!) Now, I just hope that eventually I can add real milk back. Even though I am very thankful for Ricemilk, nothing compares to the true deliciousness of cow MILK!!!
So, I'm not pregnant, but life is really looking up for me! I am excited for the beautiful weekend we are supposed to have, and ready to start all the fun planning for the Holiday Season that is here!!! So happy it's Friday and so happy I've got a great God who loves me!!! (and has blessed me with sooooo much!!!) Life is good and Fall is here!!!
