New Beginnings

I am officially unmarried as of July 31.  My ex-husband wanted and got his divorce and as  result I became unmarried.  It's been a difficult year, but I feel free to look to the future and we shall see what happens.

This month I'm going to be trying recipes with cranberries and the recipes I want to try are:
Cranberry Orange Muffins
Herbed Pork Roast w/ Cranberry Chutney
Cranberry Walnut Quinoa Salad
Orange Cranberry Sauce ( my favorite from last year!)
Cranberry Sweet Potato Drops ( my own creation ossified from another recipe, can't wait to try them)

All the other recipes were sweet, cookies and such, so if I have time I may try some of those as well.  Which to try first......

11 Weeks and Counting

It's 11 weeks until 2014 is over and 2015 begins!  I'm already working on my new planner for 2015 and I'm hoping next year will be better than this year.  While anything can happen I'm expecting things to get better for me over the next 11 weeks.  :-)

Starting in November I'm going to add one new fruit or vegetable a month and I'll post some of my favorite recipes. I'm still having gluten issues (from cross contact) and I'm hopping this will help somewhat. So next week I'll announce my Fruit/vegetable of November and maybe some recipes I want to try.

Tea Time...or not

I have been trying several different kinds of tea lately, other than my go to Peppermint and Sleepy Time teas. I can't drink ANYTHING that has caffeine in it.  Everytime that I have had tea with caffiene I've gotten a migraine.  Grandpa would be so dissappointed.  It appears my tea times from now on will be exclusively herbal teas and I'll be exploring those the next few months.

My new favorite pen

I have a new favorite pen, Frixion that Pilot sells.  It actually erases, and very well.  It's great in my Bible, note books, stationary.  I bought a three pack (black, blue, and red) for classes I'm taking and I have fallen in love.  I'm saving my pennies, nickles, and dimes for a multi color set to use when I mark/write in my Bible. I'll share pictures later, I just wanted to share tonight. :-)

Having a Learning Disability

Learning Disabilities are not fun to have.  During my recent classes I have seen several videos about people with Learning Disabilities that have made me cry for the simple fact that not only is that me now, but that was me when I was in school.  Along the way Mom also found a video about Social Anxiety Disorder, which I also have been struggling with over the past 3 decades.  I must admit that I have made so much improvement over the past few years.

This Video is a serious of 13 videos showing what it's like for a person with a learning disability in a "normal" classroom and is about an hour long.

This Video is about Social Anxiety disorder and is about an hour.

I have to admit that having both (plus chronic pain) has not always been easy to deal with, but knowledge is half the battle.  As I find more I'll post them because I want people to know what it's like for me; the stress, anxiety, fear.  I may not be afraid to go to the store anymore bu I still have a long way to go.
