A few things
- I cleaned up my blog reader and blog roll. I’ve pared it down to 39 blogs on the reader, which sounds like a lot, but I deleted about 10 or 12 of them, so it was even more! I just had to re-prioritize my time spent reading, although I felt like a bad bloggy friend deleting blogs… I hope none of them were yours!! Also, some blogs were on the WordPress reader, and some were on the Sage/Firefox reader. Apparently, reading blogs in TWO different places was too difficult for me, so I consolidated them. There are only 21 blogs on my official blogroll on the right. A few are new; you might wanna give ’em a gander.
- It is so lovely to be having a cool snap in the Phoenix area the last couple of days. I had to shut the windows earlier today, because it was 67°F in the house, and getting cooler. I’m enjoying it, because I know the heat will be here far too soon! And, I’m happy for our electricity bill, as we’ve only had the AC on for two days so far this year!
- It looks like the EIGHTEENTH TIME is the charm!! My gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan, whole-grain, rice-free, corn-free, millet-free bread recipe-tweaking is now DONE. Seriously. Eighteen batches. Finally, I have some results that I’m very happy with. 95% happy with, but that’ll have to do, as it may be impossible to achieve the perfection I’m looking for, whilst still disincluding ingredients I need to leave out. 95% is still an “A”, right??? In spite of it being “free” of nearly everything, it is surprisingly tasty bread, with to-die-for crust, works great for sandwiches, nice high rise, very healthy… Mmmm… Recipe to be posted soon.
- My mom is very ill and in the hospital. She is having severe trouble breathing — when she arrived by emergency transport, her pulse ox was at 78%. The doctors just can’t seem to agree upon/figure out what is wrong with her. First, it wasn’t pneumonia or emboli, but they didn’t know what it was. Then, it was pneumonia. Then, it was pneumonia plus something else, possibly bronchitis. Now, they’re saying that maybe it’s not pneumonia nor bronchitis, but they still don’t know what it is. My mom is very feisty… quietly stubborn. She wants desperately to go home; she’s been in since Monday afternoon. But, obviously, she needs to be able to breathe. Dear Jesus, help my Mommy, and give wisdom and supernatural insight to the doctors.
