All I want to do for the month of August is eat whatever I want, and splurg, eating lemon cupcakes with sourcream icing (never even had one but it sounds good), and strawberry rhubarb pie, and rosemary garllic sourdough bread with red pepper reserve goat cheese but oh well. It's been nice to vent with friends, and be able to complain at all hours of the day about everything I'm missing. :)
The power sugar has over me, and the power of carbs is tough. But it's August 7th now and the cravings have finally started to dissipate. (I started on the 1st.) It did not feel like a birthday without a sweet. But, it would be really nice to start a tradition of brut nature champagne (minimal carbs), and keto meal.
We did get a fabulous group of amazing friends that Dan recruited for a potluck and bocce. It blew me away. I told my brother Kaal, this morning, that I honestly didnt think I even had that many friends in Seattle. Because, who counts their friends? But it was truly amazing, and it made me giddy watching everyone visit and laugh and tease and tell stories.
Here's a pic of Emma and I on our 7 mile walk to and fro to meet Dan for work...
