Weekend Coffee Share. “Everything was Beautiful…”

For the animals. This is my weekend coffee share, hosted by Allison at http://eclecticali.wordpress.com every weekend.  Friday and Monday are days off of work for me.  Finally!  Nonetheless, I dreamed work dreams on both Friday and Saturday night, probably because by Sunday a.m., I still hadn’t spend anymore than fifteen minutes on work that I brought home, and I always bring home work!  Above is the album cover for my new Moby c.d., and it is beautiful.  The animals look so human.  His music really takes me away, which, as you can tell, I really need.  Anyhow, I think I read somewhere that Moby is a vegetarian, which is something I think about doing but haven’t yet, for a few different reasons.

I took good care of myself Friday; I had lunch with an old friend and then shopped at a so-called upper scale consignment shop.  I got a pedicure and got out for fun singing karaoke with my boyfriend.  Saturday, I met some work friends for lunch and afterward, my son and I took our dog, Bixby, to the dog park.  Bixby fell in love.  Oh, he has been fixed, but he always seems to find one dog that he wants to follow around and try to dominate.  Dog-training does not seem to help that.

He pretty much chased this one dog from one end of the dog park to the other!  It was fun to watch though, including the way the other dog resisted his advances.  Smart pup, she was!  After that, we came home and I gave him a bath, so he could return to his clean, fluffy self.

So, tomorrow I will exercise and go to the chiropractor.  I really need that; it seems I have carpal tunnel, and I’m dead set against surgery at this point in my life.  I also have arthritis.  Boo.  I’ve been told before that one should reduce carbs to keep arthritis at bay.  Well, I do try.  I’ve thought about vegeterianism, because I hate cooking meat, but I worry that if I adopted that lifestyle, I would end up eating more carbs to satisfy my hunger.  Am I wrong on this point?  I mean, I do need to eat more greens and want to feel healthier, overall.  That, and I love animals.  I also thought about Paleo, even if it’s on and off, because that way I’d really reduce the carbs.  I have to be careful, because I also get spastic colon, a syndrome that came to me via heredity and ample stress.  Sigh.  I’d be glad to hear from any vegetarians or Paleo enthusiasts about what has worked for you.

I’ve done some great self-care this weekend that I had put off for too long.  Sadly, I will have to carve out time today and maybe on my day off tomorrow for the paperwork I brought home from work.  I will not fret; this won’t last forever.  My summer will come, and it will be full of fun, writing, and my character, Malachi!

Have a great week, friends!

  1. My opinion, fads and things like “stay away from carbs” are over rated. Now if you are talking processed sugars and carbs, yes, but fresh fruits and veggies? No, they are all good (not juice or puree, fresh). A variety, lots of fiber, etc. I do eat meat, but have been toying with going meatless. I do have vegetarian days (typically at least two days a week, sometimes 4 or more), and occasionally vegan days. Anyway, that is a cool album cover.

  2. I’m in for fresh fruit & veggies anytime (except okra which science has not yet proved to even be eatable) . Pasta & potatoes starches stay in too unless deep fried. Humankind has many years of proven safety with most meats. Re: Spam, see note on okra. Salami gets a free dispensation if washed down with non-GMO, organic, dye-free, glutton-free, free-range beer. Occasional straw use is allowed.

  3. Well sometimes I go meatless but less as a lifestyle and more as a “I cant believe this is the new meat price for prices like this did the cow or chicken go to private school and it knows speaks foreign languages in which case it would be a darn shame to eat it lol
    That said I think there is great range of none-meat protein supplements you can adopt to balance out the carbs, ranging from legume type vegetables, lentils et al have always wondered about eggs though do they count as meat for someone on a vegetarian diet lol
    all the best
