Better Late Than Never Edition
I have been thinking about blogging. But you see where thinking gets me. Another Friday with nothing between my Quick Takes from last week and this week’s edition.
This week I’ve been reading up on gluten-free recipes. I reserved a bunch of books from the library and I have slowly been going through them. One seemed really promising, but it’s from Australia, so quite a few of the recipes use products I don’t have available. The one I’ve liked the most so far is Paleo Comfort Foods which features “Paleo” recipes. That means no gluten, no dairy, no legumes, no grains, and no processed foods. It sounds restrictive, but this book has yummy looking recipes. I haven’t tried any yet. I will let you know how trying the recipes turns out.
We’ve got a three-day weekend coming up in a few short hours. Time to honor the contribution of Dr. Martin Luther King to our nation and all its inhabitants.
Are you watching Downton Abbey? I wouldn’t miss it! We watched the first two seasons each within a week because we borrowed them from the library. I love the time to relax and think about the episodes when I’m watching on TV and the anticipation of waiting all week for another one.
I’m trying not to let my nerves get the best of me in regards to fertility treatment. In my case, I would need treatment even if I were not trying to get pregnant. The things my doctor has to do to find out what’s wrong with me are somewhat scary, but the outcome is worth it, whether it is just my health or if I will be healthy and a mother.
Have you read the Daily Decalogue of John XXIII? You can read it here. I printed it out and tacked it to the wall of my cube. What words to live by. I especially like this “Indeed, for 12 hours I can certainly do what might cause me consternation were I to believe I had to do it all my life.”
Prayer requests? I’m going through a lot of anxiety now and I would like to offer it for your intentions. I will pray for all my readers, but if you have a special intention, please leave it in the comments section, or if you don’t feel comfortable doing that, e-mail it to me – pineconejg (at) gmail (dot) com.
God bless you!
