Real Life spam [Aug. 7th, 2011|03:34 pm]
nepenthes59





I didn't fully realize how crappy the economy is here in Detroit until I went to San Diego for my nephew's funeral- I assumed that vacant buildings & for sale signs were rampant all over - Yesterday I saw a fellow holding a sign that said pull over for prayer I wish I had a chance to take a picture of it

While in San Diego, we went to Balboa Park & the trees were amazing - I expected them to come to life:











I think of how much my life has changed in the last 5 years - & I often think of it as life before & after the Hyde Faith tour - since it was such a seminal event. In 2006, I was employed & physically able to attend all 4 Hyde Faith tour lives - 2 short weeks later, I was in the E.R. starting my journey of 22 hospital stays & a dozen surgeries.

I'm hoping that 2011 will remain "hospital free" - I saw my Dr.last week & she is happy with my progress but wants me to gain more weight.

It's a real challenge to eat enough calories while avoiding eating too much fat or sugar-but I'm not complaining. I've been cooking & baking a lot - & I'm a happy owner of a Breville Smart Oven I have an old Viking range that takes over 30 minutes to preheat - so it's great to have an oven that doesn't heat up the whole house.

some food spam:
