Wellness Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Update on my garden. 

It’s looking a little sad,  but it’s still producing a lot of good food. 

The plan for tomorrow is to make a vegan caprese salad, with lettuce, tomatoes, and basil from the garden, and vegan mozzarella and balsamic vinegar. I’ll take a picture and post it next week. 

It would be better, but even vegans get sick. I  spent the week before my birthday in the hospital with kidney stones. One was 8mm and completely blocked my left kidney. I now have a tube in my back, will have lithotripsy to blast the stones so they can pass, and about a week after that, they’ll remove the tube. 

Meanwhile, I can’t do very much, so my garden is slightly neglected. Hubby does the best he can, but taking care of me and our home, and working full-time, there’s only so many hours in a day. 

And now I have to tweak my diet yet again. Low oxalate foods, so I won’t keep developing stones. I’ll update you on that when I post my salad picture. 

For now, the order of the day is rest. 

What are you cooking tonight for Wellness Wednesday? 

A Pocketful of Joy to Fill Your Day

  1. Oh, Betty! I am so sorry to hear this. But the good thing is you are eating healthy and that goes a long way to proper healing. Keep up the good work! The upcoming hot summer is going to be hard on those plants but moving them to the shade and giving them a daily drink will see them through just fine. Take care of yourself. Love to you.

    1. Thanks so much. I think the lettuce is spent, but the rest should be fine. Hubby does water them. There is no shade here except for what the motor home casts in the afternoon.
