... as if you didn't know.:)

I can't stand noise.  I hate hearing people in their backyards when I'm in my backyard.  Sound selfish?  Seriously, it's like some kind of freakish anxiety disorder.  I'm not talking about loud music--they're usually just talking. I spend half the time telling myself it should not be bothering me and the other half feeling like I'm going to implode.  I wonder if this is connected to my vestibular disorder or if I'm just nuts?

I think this might be karma for all the times I blared my music in the past.  I used to sing in a band, and we practiced in an old Victorian house in New York--windows and doors wide open.  Some of the neighbors would pull up chairs to listen.  It never entered my mind that we might be bothering people. 



My web cam makes me look a bit like a vampire.

It feels good to be able to get around a bit more.  I take it easier than I used to, but maybe that is how I should have been doing things all along.  I think I was always too hyper, and now it is time to live at a more peaceful pace.

I went to another estate sale and was it ever fun!  I scored an antique water kettle, and I just love it--perfect for a pot of flowers on the back porch.

I posted another southern tea cake recipe over at Angelnina's Cottage, AND if you've ever wondered what an Angelnina's Cottage looks like, I posted the first phase of turning the shop into a guest cottage.  We have the front French doors, the window, recessed lighting, and heaters installed.  We have a way to go before it is finished.  Eventually, I'd like to paint it yellow with white trim, and hang window boxes for flowers. 

Life is moving forward.

I think I am turning a corner with the vestibular problem.  For the past few days I've felt about 25% more energy than I have felt for the past few months.   I had no energy before, so this is quite a plus, and I'm very happy about it.

I realize I haven't commented much, but please know, I'm usually reading as much as I can.

I'm on a new food kick--more veggies, produce, and whole grains.    I'm wondering if that is what seems to be boosting my energy? 
I still have blurred vision, but the dizzies seem to be lessening.  YAY!

Today I baked honey wheat bread from my Tassajara Bread Book ,and I just made a double batch of Winter Vegetable Soup.  I'm whooped now.

I'm not becoming a vegetarian, but I am going to strive to get those 5 or more servings of fruits and veggies everyday.

I saw Mark Bittman speak at U-Dub in Seattle, and I was impressed.

NEW wordpress blog up with cake recipes and a Bittman review.
