I haven't felt like doing much of anything ... my diet is stalled and I can't get past the 20 pound mark even tho I'm 100% on track ... I haven't felt like sewing ... there isn't anything WRONG - the weather is getting beautiful and I'm ever so thankfully experiencing a remission in my psoriasis symptoms (for the first time in 3+ years!) - there's no reason I should be in a funk, so I'm trying to work my way out of it!
I had some Chapters gift cards so I ordered some books to be delivered:
200 Fast & Easy Artisan Breads and Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
I quite like baking bread, even tho I'm not very good at it yet! I use my KA mixer and I don't make anything fancy - now that I think about it, I've only made focaccia bread so far, lol. Today I decided to make olive bread to surprise our oldest son - it's on it's second rise right now and will be going into the oven soon :D
The boys bought me a KA icecream attachment for Christmas so I also ordered a couple of ice-cream books:
Ice Cream: 52 easy recipes and Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream -- I'm not a big ice-cream fan but I'm hoping to find some lower calorie gelato or sorbet recipes in the books :)
We got new neighbours this past weekend - I met their 18 month old son yesterday and while his mom was holding him, he reached out his arms to me so I could hold him! Sweet wee muffin! That put a BIG smile on my face :)
I'll be headed out for a walk soon - hopefully my funk is over or almost over, and I can get back to being happy about life in general!
P.S. Edited to elaborate: my psoriasis has been nicely under control since June with a combination of Humira + steroids, but in the last month it has decided to improve without the steroids I usually use - this has never happened before and it is WONDERFUL!
