23 Biking with doggy

Friday, July 04, 2014

Yes, I am still on the no-meatwagon – and it is still very hard. I have also added icecream and candy to the no-nos but have not counted days on those. I realise that I will have a problem with the "No meat" rule when it comes to breakfast. Standard breakfast o me is coffee and homebaked wholewheat bread with smoked ham on - I also have smoked salmon on but that is rather luxury - and cheese is not good to keep in the house as it is a temptation to overeat...I will have to establish another breakfast but from earlier attempts I know that it is hard to keep that up.

I have not done much of my renovation work – that was the big thing after driving daughter to music camp... instead I have been sitting with the sewing machine, making some sort of weird "pedagogic" thing form daughters halfsisters daughter. She was born jan 2013 had a twin sister that died in the womb and had to be delivered three month early - it is still not known how disabled she will be, she is very late, can roll from back to stomach today and "jump" in a babyswing and make noises that means different things. She is almost deaf and wears hearing aids and seems to be okay intellectually - but we will see. I bought a doll from a company that specialize in toys and stuff for children with extra needs - and then daughter said that the baby girls would probably be most interested in the little tag with the washing instruction - so I made a piece of cloth with a lot of tags with different colours and structures for her. And then I made developed that piece of cloth into a bag that can be a "sleeping bag" for the doll, or filled with a sweater and serve as travel pillow since the backside is soft and furry, and has buckles for making it a little backpack too. The idea is to make a little story to every item and tag, that will also extend the use of this not so beautiful thing... the doll was expensive, the bag was free - only working hours and I had a lot of fun:

Exercising has been low also - and when I took out doggy cycleharness yesterday his reaction really made me feel bad - he was almost dying from happiness! He is always happy when we are to go out biking but this showed me that he has been really bored these days when I have been sort of apatic. The bikingtour was hardly any exercise for me, the dog was so enthusiastic that he towed med along in full speed almost all thirty minutes we were out.

So this morning my conscience is clean, have already been out on a tour with him. My friend has gone to row some vikingship in Norway, and in her absence I have asked to nick her morningpaper and as she lives perfectly fifteen minutes bike tour away it was a good morning activity. After all the raining the sun is finally out this morning so I also need to get the lawn mowed as soon as I think it is decent to do it regarding the neighbours wake up time...

    I love the baby gift! Both the doll and the bag, thoughtful! Sounds like you are doing well. All is well here, tired; but it's been a busy day.

    As I read this it occurred to me that when I make an effort to remove something from my life, I have more success when I replace it or simply add something (not necessarily equivalent). Have you thought of something entirely different for breakfast? My morning meal is a "green drink" primarily kale, protein powder and a bit of fruit.

    Your baby gift is so precious and thoughtful!

    The other day I said to my 2 doggies, "should we go out for a walk". And, the one got so excited he literally screamed for happiness. So, I fully understand when you talk about how happy a dog gets after not being taken out for awhile. And yes, the one really pulled for awhile!

    Oh, WOW Meddy you are soooo creative! I wish I knew how to use a sewing machine. I love the bag! What do you mean not-so-beautiful! My guess is that the energy that was involved making the bag will make it very attractive to a baby / small child.

    With regard to the meat cravings: I wonder if maybe trying to eat LOTS of vegetables would help. If the body is flooded with nutrients it may drop the cravings.
