Not a lot to report on around here lately....other than I am still on the very low starch diet and so far I have not gone to jail. It was looking kinda iffy there for a while but all I can say is thank God for chocolate and coffee, otherwise I'm not sure where we'd be. This diet is a special kind of hell in case you're wondering or would like to get back at someone at some point. The first few days I was sure I could, and possibly would, chew the siding off the house but things have calmed down now. I guess it was just my body adjusting to getting part of it's energy somewhere else but for now at least, I am able to go for several hours without having to cram any non-starch food I can get my hands on into my face.
I have even been experimenting with baking with coconut flour! and I managed to make some "biscuits" tonight that were.....not horrible. With a little pat of butter they were actually fairly edible. Chigger on the other hand, seems to really like coconut flour .....creations....errr....eggy things. She also had to stop and poo about 3 times today on a 15 minute walk, so I guess maybe I should spread the "love" between her and the chickens a bit more. So far I have not felt any particularly noticeable pain relief but they say it can take 3-4 weeks before you notice anything. If it works...it will be totally worth it. If it doesn't....well...I'm gonna be one pissed @#^%*&*(%&^$%!!.
In some wonderful news though, the honeybees have been massive this year!! There are just tons of them on my corn (which I can't !$%&*^*% eat now!) and on the catnip. Yay! Just hundreds of them it seems.
