Well, our early spring thaw was just a teaser as I expected. We had three days straight of fairly strong winds from the north. That cooled things down in a hurry. Since then we’ve seen mostly cloudy days. Temperatures continue to be fairly mild with daytime temps in the upper twenties to mid thirties. It is predicted to become a bit colder in a couple days with the possibility of snow flurries or snow/rain mixed. It is still better than the -21 we had just a few weeks ago…PLUS, we are getting over 12 hours of daylight every day, now.
My knees continue to improve. I am very thankful to the people on the BTD forum and all their helpful suggestions. It is nice to hear healthful remedies instead of someone saying to take an aspirin or whatever to minimize the pain but do nothing to build up the injured area. The people on the forum try to give real help.
It’s almost time to medicate my son’s Burmeese python again. Fortunately it is only about 3 feet long and can’t fight me too well, yet. It doesn’t like a syringe of GSE, water, and antibiotics being forced down its throat. I’m really impressed with how it is responding to the addition of diluted grapefruit seed extract. That stuff has helped us and many of our animals to quickly get over a variety of illnesses. I’m confident that it will also work with the python.
The grocery store had some decent prices on fruit this week, so I stocked up with strawberries, bananas, grapes, and apples. This morning I fixed a smoothie with fresh strawberries and banana; added pineapple juice and tofu and blended all of it with some ice. GOOOOOD!
We had a good dinner tonight. Fried chicken coated with kamut and arrowroot, then simmered in the pan with a bit of olive oil. I made a gravy with the leftover kamut/arrowroot mixture and rice milk. The gravy went over brown Basmati rice; and we had steamed broccoli, carrots, & cauliflower to go with. Everyone ate until they were full and I made enough for tomorrow’s dinner, too. With tomorrow’s dinner, we’ll have steamed asparagus.
