I love onions especially Vidalia onions which are grown in Vidalia Georgia. Onions rings made with Vidalia onions are wonderfully sweet and, done in the right batter, very crunchy. Yesterday our local brew pub had real Vidalia Onion Rings on their menu as a special appetizer. Ariel and I order them. We ate them. And my stomach hated me for it. So I have struck onions off my list along with radishes (which I also loved). I am a little better this morning but I can feel the discomfort working its way through my colon.
I don’t mind growing old. It sure beats the alternative. However I wish I had been kinder to my body when I was young. Ate a few more veggie, did a little more exercise, avoid some of the situations that have screwed up parts of my skeletal structure. But what I have is what I have to live with so I make the best of what I have and try to be nicer to it as I age.
Caroline has a very nice day for camp. The humidity is low for a change and the temperature is comfortable. I have slathered her up with sunscreen and bug proofed her. We had to have a long conversation about the field and the goose poop that litters the field and how no matter which field they went to down by the water, there are going to be geese and…well…leavings.
So today is about set up and sorting out. I am going to take pictures to get me motivated. I need to get a couple of things cut out and started. I need to get past the thinking stage and into the practical stage. I have hard things to do, new things to do and comfortable things to do. I just have to divide it up and not just go for the easy to the hard nor the hard to the easy to avoid frustration.
I am grateful for lovely summer days for Caroline to play in.
