Getting there....

Today is the first day I have really felt a bit like myself, some energy, the old brain seems to be firing up again, and I actually feel like talking to people a bit rather than curling up in a corner and rocking back and forth quietly.

That is indeed A. Good. Thing.

Another good thing is that we are going to head off to the boat despite the universally dreary forecast for the weekend, we don't anticipate getting much done tomorrow, indeed I don't anticipate getting much done at all, but it should be good, even if we just lie around and read a lot.

Lunch today was LOVELY.

I know some folks don't like eating alone, especially in a restaurant. It has never bugged me.

Today I knew exactly what I needed. Japanese food. Only choice. Rice is a nice binder, the seaweed is CHALK full of minerals, the fish is great, simple, easily digested protien and the veggies are just the right amount, plus there is usually avocado which is too good for you to talk about.

Miso is full of benificial bacteria, just like yogurt, and I could use some recolonising I imagine, and it is so yummy.

I brought a good book for waiting, I sipped my soup, I slowly ate my beautiful delicious very spartan pieces of sushi and then sipped my lovely warm clear green tea and felt SO GOOD.

Not full, not bloated, not ill.


At last, enough nutrients are getting through that I am starting to function again.

It is SO wonderful.

Wishing you all health.

Have a great weekend,

I'm so glad that you're back in the Land of the Living again!

And that sounds like a great lunch!

So happy to hear you're on the mend!

Also glad you made sure to eat exactly what you felt like eating. That's always a good idea, but especially when you've been under the weather.

JG, Eating what you feel like eating does seem like such a good idea!

i do so love eating alone. especialy something like sushi which is such a treat to look at, as well.

Mmichele, I am glad I am not alone in this to speak...but a good meal, taken alone can be a true delight to the senses. A meal with others can be a total treat as well, or not, but a meal alone has it's own alure.
