I was lucky enough to get hit with my twice-yearly cold/allergy thing a few days ago, so I’m not feeling particularly hot right now. The past two days have been filled with lots of watery eyes, a runny nose, and general misery. Today is better in that my nose and eyes aren’t watering, though now I’m in the coughing lots and lots stage. That’s pretty much what I’ve been up to recently. The weather has been weird; we’ve had weeks of highs in the 60′s, and suddenly we’re back at 75. The end of this week we’re expecting temps in the 50′s during the day again and lows of mid-30′s at night. Crazy.
My wife had her tests for gluten intolerance, so we’re going back to being primal, and I’m thrilled about it. I’ve noticed a definite change between eating normally and eating primally. Being primal really cuts down on hunger pangs, and I can eat a few almonds in the morning for breakfast, have a small salad for lunch, and be ready to have a big meal by dinner time. On a conventional diet, I wake up starving, and have to eat far more often. I also noticed the change in energy levels – while primal, I’m full of energy all day long, which is great.
We grabbed a 10-pound turkey for Thanksgiving, which I’m excited about – I’m used to working on Thanksgiving, thanks to my family’s restaurant, so it’s always nice to get a chance to enjoy the holiday and do actual holiday things instead of working in an industrial kitchen all day long.
Art-wise, I did the doodle below in my Moleskine. I’m happy with it, and Kathryn says it looks very Dr. Seuss-like. I may do a few for my Etsy. Speaking of which, I haven’t had any sales lately, but I’d love to be able to ship out a few items for Christmas gifts – if you’re looking for gifts for that special someone, head over to http://www.greyedout.etsy.com and take a look. I think all of my items are priced fairly, and within anyone’s budget.
