My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

I slept last night.

Among my many diagnosed physical problems, I have insomnia (trouble getting to sleep), hypopnia (trouble staying asleep), sleep apnea (trouble breathing while asleep) and restless legs (trouble calming the legs down so I can try to sleep). For years, I've taken something to help me sleep... whether using my CPAP machine for sleep apnea, a knock-out sleeping pill, or even a tylenol p.m..... something!

But last night, other than vitamin supplements (fish oil, garlic, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, COQ10, etc.), I took nothing. Not even a pain reliever.

Was it what I ate yesteday? I did eat only kinda healthy....

Breakfast: pecans, 4 choc merignes, gf raisin brd
Lunch: eggsalad, flax crackers, apple
Snack: 6 dark choc kisses
Dinner: quinoa flatbread, carrots
Snack: rice cereal with rice milk
Drink: instant decaf tea with stevia

I still have my bad cough and pneumonia so it's not because I'm well, because I'm not. Is it because I haven't eaten gluten in over a week? Or is it in my mind?

Does it matter?

I actually slept last night, and it felt restful! Yippee!!!

It only took about a week of going gf to start feeling better. Approaching the 1 yr point, and I have no desire to go back. As I learn to bake with our various dietary restrictions, I'm even enjoying myself.
