Piers & Sushi Dates...

Thursday, April 4, 2013

When the weather is this good, all I want to do is be outside. I've been dreaming up adventures for Martin & I: afternoons spent wandering our city, patio lunches, outdoor concerts, long country drives, photography trips, stay-cations, weekend visits to nearby islands... and soon, days spent laying by our outdoor pool. Yup, I'm in full daydreamer mode! Blame it on our shorts & sandal weather last week - it's been incredibly warm! I'm also feeling creatively charged these days... I'm excited to plan for more days spent doing what I love. Photography! I've even been toying with putting together a very teeny tiny jewelry collection. I still have my online store "Fox & Clover," but haven't done anything with it in ages. I'll keep you posted!

Other than that, this week has had its challenges. I've been hit with another health flare-up. Unfortunately, they happen from time to time, and it's the pits because it leaves me feeling sooo fatigued. But when life gets tough, I definitley like to step up to the challenge and fight back. I've been doing lots of research and learning about what kind of foods to eat during flare-ups. So, I've been drinking protein packed smoothies, juicing, and making healthy soups. I usually just throw a bunch of stuff into our blender with vegetable broth and do a quick puree. My favourite combo's are carrots, apples and parsnips with mild curry. And I'm hoping to try an asparagus, potato soup with thyme next. Mmmm! And then, it's time to sit down and create a workout schedule for myself. I'm in desperate need of one. What's new with you guys?!...

  3. We're about to get hit with another 10-15 cm of snow here so I'm envious of how lovely it looks there! And it sounds as though you are being really proactive when it comes to your health - which is such a positive and admirable approach to take.

  4. Oh no, so sorry to hear that you've been feeling under the weather again, Veronika! Wishing you a swift recovery for sure - especially because it sounds like you have lots of fun things planned! I'm so ready for it to be spring so we can really start getting out and about here in Paris, but so far the weather is refusing to cooperate... so I`ll just be living vicariously through you for now :) And admiring your snapshots of Scout, of course. He is so photogenic!

  8. I am right there with you as far as warm weather goes! I just want to be outside. And I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well... We should talk more. I have fibromyalgia which causes flare-ups that leave me incredibly fatigued as well. It's not easy. Sending love! xo

  20. Have you ever heard of Hemocode? I know you mentioned having issues with food allergies, and I started having the same thing last summer! I had Hemocode testing done and found out I was reacting to a LOT of foods that I was eating daily - lots of which are super healthy so I figured I was doing myself some good! It's testing that is different from true allergies - more like sensitivities that cause fatigue, rashes, headaches, etc. Anyways, you can read about it at www.hemocode.com. It's Canadian, too! :) Hopefully you feel better soon!
