I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

    It is always nice when I see your posts on my blogs. I agree, the highlight was DD time yesterday.

    How is it going with the alergy/foods/skin? It makes me wonder if my dry scaly skin could be alergy related? We don't do much wheat/dairy/corn but I do indulge sometimes because unlike DH and DDs I don't have obvious reactions.. but my skin. Hmmm. Tests are offered at the doctors and maybe it is worth doing one. I have done an elimination diet but really noticed no difference but I'm not sure I was looking specifically at my little scales... which have spread to almost all my body. My Mom was the same so I figured it was just genes. Coffee has me wondering... making me dehydrated.

    You are a nice breath of sunshine my dear. I hope all is well. Justyna

    hi! can't wait to see the pics. and i love the mille fleurs too!!! they are so pretty. i have been looking at ameraucanas--found a guy i think in pennsylvania that sells the fertile eggs and chicks. also found someone in texas that sells eggs for bantam barred rocks. i think i want to get 2 flocks going of dual purpose birds so i can cross them and try to get a good dual purpose hybrid. know i want to get some bielfelders from greenfire farms for one. not sure about the second variety i want--keep drifting back to the black copper marans, though!
