Downsizing the Dream

parfait
Well, things have been a little tricky this week. Since I BROKE MY HIP (I guess I cracked a rib too!), I haven’t been able to do very many things for myself. I usually do most of the food prep with help sometimes from my boyfriend. But he has been really AMAZING lately. He made me this. It’s coconut yogurt (which he made from scratch) with strawberries and cacao nibs. He also made kefir! And he’s been making me green juices and smoothies every day. Way to make a person feel loved!

Here’s me enjoying my parfait with my walker. With this kind of VIP treatment, I should be better in no time!

Going for a ride in the new (old) car. We bought it from my boyfriend’s cousin, Marilyn, who has my same birthday and middle name.

boxHere is my boyfriend boxing up my new DEHYDRATOR with the blinky lights. It’s a great looking dehydrator, but unfortunately it doesn’t dry things so well. Maybe it’s just too closed off with not enough air circulation. That’s my personal theory anyway. So yeah, I guess you can say that I’ve crossed into the next phase of empire building: MEETING OBSTACLES HEAD ON. I just need to remember that this is part of the process. I was actually starting to wonder. Things were happening too easily – a recipe for long term failure. Obstacles make a person stronger and have more empathy for others. Unfortunately, they’re generally expensive and make one have to strip down to a more elemental state. Time to cut the flack out of the system. No more blinky.

zuch
Good thing I won’t have to downsize EVERYTHING. Like this zucchini that’s growing like crazy in my garden. I CAN NOT WAIT until I can stand up and start making recipes again. I think I’m getting there. Maybe soon…
