What a busy and productive weekend we had!
Our bees have moved up from the brood box and into the super and started making honey! It has been a long, cold Winter for them and from what I have heard a lot of people around here have lost entire hives! We were very fortunate as new bee keepers not to lose our hive.
Levi had a swim meet Saturday and Sunday. Both days we were at the Natatorium from 12-6 or 7 and it sure made for some long days! But Saturday he swam amazingly well! He got 2nd in the 100 yard breast stroke and took 13 seconds off his previous time. He got 3rd in the 50 yard back stroke and 5th in the 50 yard free style. Sunday was an even better swim day. He took 1st in the 50 yard breast stroke, 3rd in the 100 yard back stroke and 4th in the 100 yard free style also shaving 11 seconds off his previous time! I couldn’t be more proud of my growing little man!
Since we were so busy both days my mornings consisted of a lot of meal prep for me. I am still doing this reactive food thing for another 9 days until I have a good list of foods and a good foundation of how to do it on my own. Things have been going really well so far. I have found my body can’t tolerate any legumes. Which really sucks. I was so hoping to be able to eat some hummus and black beans again. Spinach is a big no-no for me as well. And anything dairy causes a ton of inflammation. At first chicken seemed to be ok but I think it’s only ok in very small doses and very spaced out intervals. Steak has turned out to be terrible for me as well. Meat proteins are turning out to be a no go for me. At this point, only half way through, I think after all is said and done, I might go vegan. We shall see. The first 3 days you eat vegan and I never felt so good!
Sunday instead of lugging Delylah with us to the swim meet she got to go hang out at her buddies all afternoon! She did spend Saturday at the swim meet with me and we ran the concession stand. She was a big help and time went by quickly. But it is a long day at the pool. A friend offered Delylah to spend Sunday with them instead of the pool so she lucked out! I wasn’t working concessions Sunday anyway. It wouldn’t have been as much fun. I ended up having a super important job of running time sheets and getting awards in order and having her there would have been a hassle for me.
Levi bought a couple of new video games after the swim meet on Saturday so Sunday morning all I heard was the laughter and yelling of my kids killing each other playing Mortal Kombat. Sunday after the meet I joined in. Turns out, I am not very good at the new version of the game.
I fit some yoga in on my silks everyday and played on me new toy with Delylah in between all the chaos. I can definitely feel it in my upper body and all the new bruises on my legs!
We had the most fantastic weekend and I can’t wait for a busy week of hopefully nice weather so we can start gardening and begin some new projects around here.
Happy Monday My Friends
