Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I'm watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead for the first time right now......Joe Cross (the guy in the movie) apparently used to take prednisone for his disease he was diagnosed with...He calls it, "a powerful steroid." It's the same exact medication I was prescribed to take for my ulcerative proctitis that I've been refusing to take for months and months now...My doctor didn't even think it was a big deal to prescribe it to me. So frustrating.
Been having a few flare-ups here and there...eating less sugar...just ran out of white flour, so that's good... ;)
Some Other Things I've Done That Sprung Up From Watching This Movie (I forgot I even did a few of these things, they've been out of my realm so long):
I've also been gazing at my Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds catalogue...last night I stayed up for an extra hour looking at it and flipping through the pages, imagining my beautiful future garden and telling my boyfriend all about the politics of the food industry...LOL I said, "Thankyou for putting up with me and my ranting," afterward!! :P He was so sweet, he just sat there and looked at it with me and listened to me talk. He seemed genuinely interested...It's so odd, for someone I wasn't even interested in...I am liking him more and more every day. I feel sooo happy to see him and sooo happy he is here, it's been wonderful him staying here for the last 3-4 days. I'd love it if he stayed even longer, I haven't grown tired of him yet. :)
I can't wait to plan my dream garden with all of you!!
I am thinking lots of greens...rutabagas...watermelons...fennel...garlic...cantaloupes...pumpkins in autumn...even trying out this really interesting-looking, thorned, yellow, exotic melon that the catalogue said was hardy and easy to grow. It's probably meant for regions like Florida, nevertheless, I'm going to give it a try anyway!! What fun :) I really can't wait to get started!! :) It has been snowing on and off incessantly...but I might start indoor gardening soon to prep everything. I am going to see what the Michigan gardening websites advise!!
Had a really weird dream last night that I was dreaming, with a boyfriend (not sure who this person was) at my Aunt's house in WI, and I had a nightmare, and when I woke up, my cousin walked in the room, knowing I had it, and said that I had to leave her house to sleep somewhere else immediately, because of the, "Nanamagia." (pronounced in the dream nawh-nawh-mah-jee-ah). LOL I don't really know what the nanamagia is, I'm thinking of googling the word just for kicks and giggles, but my cousin in the dream was acting very superstitious, and the nanamagia is supposed to be like, evil dream people or something.
How funny to have a dream about having a dream!!!!
Oh P.S: Continuing watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, I see that the guy who is juice feasting at the last half of the movie is on a lot of medications I was on, both methotrexate (which made me deathly ill, it's a mild form of chemotherapy), as well as hydroxychloroquine. I love that his doctor is supporting his healthy journey and gradually decreasing his meds, saying, "eventually we will have you off of all of them." That is encouraging for me. Hopefully the next time I see my doctor and I have the opportunity to explain more in depth to her, she'll be more understanding.
