Wow, I could use some of that energy, too, tt - great going with all your organizing!
I feel like the wind is out of my sails with Gracie's recovery. I have terrible nightmares every night, and I don't sleep well in the first place waiting for her to need to go out or have some other need. Happily, she just used the restroom thanks to Miralax, for the first time all day. So, at least I know a bathroom need won't wake her up. And, on another positive note, her only swelling seems to go up and down at her hock, not any to speak of at her knee. I have been taking quality photos with the actual camera because it has a flash, and I want the doc to see the progression if there turns out to be a problem. As soon as I upload them I'll post a few that aren't too yucky.
I loved your description of seeing the world out your window, tt - it so reminded me of years past sitting at the picture window with my grandmother wondering about this neighbor and that, harmless supposing. :) I miss her so much. She always had candy to find, too.
pingo, the visits go by so fast, don't they?! I hope it was great - I know it was. Only 3 weeks 'til you see him, again, so parting won't be so hard.
Thanks for pointing out the cake correction. I think I'll make that for my aunt and uncle with coconut sugar and sprouted spelt - it will be a HUGE hit.
I am still using up non-cleanse food so made the most of it and bought beef tenderloin for my dinner. Grilled it on the stove top in a cast iron grill pan - better than a restaurant - I cooked it exactly to order! That and a glass of wine, another no-no on cleanse, and I'm as dirty as possible, lol. Frankly, at my current weight and general good eating habits I am honestly leading toward skipping it this year. DH doesn't mind; he likes it so doesn't see the unfairness of that idea. :)
