Our current cold spell continues this week with no let up in sight yet. The state’s low temperature on Saturday was -54 degrees at Fort Yukon, and for Sunday, it was -53 at Chandalar! Sure glad is wasn’t so cold here, although it has been several degrees below zero every night for quite a while. We also hit 10 hours between sunup and sunset this week.
Tonight we should get a good display of the aurora. I’ll be checking again outside before I go to bed. So often the northern lights are not visible until the middle of the night and quite truthfully, I’d rather get my rest than get up to watch them. Sometimes we do get to see them around 10 pm or so, and that is what I am hoping for tonight.
Tonight’s dinner was so good. We had roast leg of lamb, brown rice with veggies, and sautéed spinach. While the roast was in the oven I baked some birdie bread for my birds. It smelled so good while it was baking! It is certainly wholesome, but with all the crumbled egg shells in it, I guess I will just leave it for the birds. At least I make up a couple loaves of spelt/oat bread for us to enjoy during the week, too.
Sometimes it is very frustrating helping or attempting to help some people. This week a woman was distressed because every time she eats grains, she notices that her candida flares up again. So I wrote to her and asked if she was a blood type O because I noticed that I have no candida problems since I don’t eat a lot of grains. If one was to follow the US Pyramid plan, they would eat 5-9 servings a day of grains! WOW! I don’t get that much in a whole week! Anyway, she wrote back that yes, she was an O, BUT she doesn’t believe in the blood type diet and that she is sure she will find some way to eat her grains and not worsen the candida! Some people just don’t want to be inconvenienced to do what their bodies’ request. Who knows, maybe someday she will realize that the grains are not doing her any real good.
Well, I am tired tonight. So, hope all has gone well for you and yours. Until next time, take care……..
