Thanks to DD’s hard work over the last several months, Awesome to be Rawsome has a new look and layout. There are still a few details to take care of but, for the most part, it’s done. The poor girl didn’t get a holiday. I’ll have to think of some way to reward her besides a heartfelt “Thank you, my dear daughter!”
If the navigation seems unfamiliar and downright strange, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be fine. Click with abandon and explore everything.
Being the sentimental person I am, I had to take one last screenshot of the old theme.
Besides the new look, there’s also a new Facebook page. You can “like” it by clicking on the link under “Join me on Facebook” at the bottom of this (and every) page. It’s neat to watch the numbers grow!
And now to Other Things.
I had planned to go to town today after I’d had a good night’s sleep. Laying in supplies so I wouldn’t have to eat from the larder exclusively was my intent. I was feeling pretty good and went out to visit with my cousin who had been clearing brush from in front of the old house. After a few minutes, I came back in to eat.
Brain fog has taken over so I don’t remember everything I ate, but I’d cooked potatoes with rosemary and mashed them. They were good, but I wanted more flavor. I would have preferred cashew gravy but that’s on the taboo list for now. Not too long ago, Rocky of The Vegg had mentioned he likes The Vegg on potatoes. I hadn’t tried it but I couldn’t think of a better time. No fat, no fiber. And it was good! I had two helpings.
That was probably my downfall. After my carb overload, I was in no shape to drive. My cousin would have taken me and DD was concerned I wouldn’t have enough to eat. I assured both of them I’ll be fine. I may not have what I WANT but I will definitely not starve.
I told my cousin about my onion I have growing in my kitchen window. It’s really shot up. I was rummaging in the fridge for something the other day when I came across part of an onion that had started growing from either end. I stuck it in some water and put it in the window.
Here’s the root system:
And here’s the rest:
When I can eat onion again, that will make a nice addition to a salad or a garnish.
I’ve gotten some things done today by taking my time and resting when I needed to. A huge stack of dishes is done from before the bad part of my attack started. Amazing how a high carb diet messes up very few of them. I also peeled and cut up four or five (brain fog) mangoes and put three cartons in the freezer. There were several strips of wood on top of the freezer I had to move and I hope I didn’t put them in a bad spot.
Today has been full of excitement. DD had told me last night she would be working on getting everything migrated today so the new design could go live. I was able to watch the progress on my end and it was so interesting I had to tear myself away at times. She about wore herself out. I don’t know how long she had been working on it this morning but she started moving everything over about noon TT. Late this afternoon, it was complete and she said she was quitting so she could get something to eat. I don’t blame her at all. I didn’t expect her to labor her Labor Day but she did it and said she enjoyed it.
Twinkle was back to being docile this evening. I need to feed her and get to bed, myself. Tomorrow is The Day. I was told to stay up late, eat a snack before I went to bed, sleep in and take my thyroid meds with “a tiny sip of water”. I’m to bring comfortable clothes and comfy socks. I’ve eaten as late as I want to eat so I think I’ll sub a glass of water for the snack. The next time I post, I won’t be a carrier.
