The Experiment: Day 31 ~ Just Resting On A Sunday Afternoon…

See that lemur? That’s pretty much how I feel right now. I’m tired but at peace. I am just wanting to snuggle up with the pugs and rest. I have been catching up with things here on the computer and am getting this blog post up — so exciting! — 31 days — my first full month of this 365 day experiment is completed and now I continue on through the rest of the year. But come Sunday I just don’t feel like doing much of anything.

Noni and I got up at 9:30. I was so tired I could hardly get up. We made coffee (We each made a different kind, she brought her light roast with her to try here because I always make French Roast which she doesn’t like as well. I like my beans black and oily, the kind that kind of kicks you in the keester on that first sip!) and sat at the kitchen table talking about everything under the sun. It’s so nice to be able to have coffee and visit in a leisurely fashion with a friend. Then she headed off to work and I came in to the studio to get to work here. I kept meaning to get this blog post up as soon as possible so I could have that nap with the pugs but now Noni will be back in a little over an hour so I guess this snail speed I’ve been on all day just hasn’t made it possible. That’s okay, it is a sweet peaceful day here, the pugs are sleeping and snoring all around me as I write, and I can’t help but smile at these sleeping babies.

The one thing I just really have to say is that I am deeply grateful, as I sit here thinking about it, because I feel so good, so at peace, these are days — after spending more than six months debilitated by depression, even so bad at one point that the mobile crisis unit had to be called, and meds were changed left and right — of peace and ease. Everyday I get up, take care of my puggeries, and then have a pretty peaceful day of working here. It is a combination of finally being on the right medication at the right dosage, a big factor are the dietary changes, but I think a huge part of it has been coming here to the blog every day to get a post up. It has really been life changing. And looking at my wellness and okayness as a project dependent on many factors, continuing to explore and hunt for more, and sharing them with you, getting your responses, and answering you back, well, it is just taking me miles on my road to a peaceful, happy life. I can’t thank you enough if you are here with me. Your comments mean so much. And I really hope if you comment you come back to the post to read my response to you because even though it may be the next day before I respond — what with time differences and Life! — I always respond thoughtfully and from the heart. It’s the call and response. Your comments make me feel heard and that means so much to me, and I want you to know that you are heard too, and deeply appreciated.

Well, Noni will be back here soon. I wanted to share pictures of the food we made last night because it was SO good. I put links to the recipes up yesterday. We had the chicken with asparagus and three cheeses. AND WE MADE THOSE BISCUITS! They were to DIE for. Tonight we are making another double batch to split between us to have for the week ahead. We positively swooned over them! And for dinner we are going to have the scrambled eggs, asparagus, keto cheese sauce over both, and freshly baked cheddar biscuits from that fabulous recipe. If you want the links to the recipes just hop back over to yesterday’s post.

I’m going to close here. Maybe I can take a short rest with the pugs afterall. I hope you are having a lovely afternoon and will have a wonderful week ahead. I’ll be here, everyday, just come on by and say hello.

Warm Regards and Deepest Blessings to all…
