Life is good and coffee thoughts…

Woke up all groggy, the weather changed last night. It hit -15 below zero and then screamed literally upward in a few hours to -6. I was messed up and dimwitted. Some say dimwitted all the time, but this morning it was true. Then a cup of java and checking the e-mail and Boza and I went off to walk the wintry world we live in…

Sometimes the best images come from my cheap cellphone. It seems to catch what I see better and it seems to put color correct, when color is such a small spot in the grey white world I live in. That color is important, for it is what drives the senses and makes sparks of happiness inside your soul…

One day I will be able to drive out again. It is okay though, life is so much more than just driving and going somewhere. Life is what you make of where you are at, at that moment. Life is good even when life seems to be crushing you to death…

Food is not an issue anymore. The need for food has decreased considerably and my body has adjusted to consuming less. If I eat too much, then I feel sluggish for hours. I have learned to eat what I crave and not what we are taught we should eat constantly. I have not had a craving for McDonald’s in a very long time and when I do go to the store, only certain foods meet what I need. Cottage Cheese is very important, bread has become nil and makes me feel sick anymore. Mandarins are the cats meow (little know fact: Russians just love mandarins and you can find them literally at any store, big or small.) peanuts are dirt cheap in Russia and my mainstay when I walk. The last time I drank a small can of diet coke, I was sure I would throw up and my body did not like it. I am sure that eating a Big Mac would devastate my insides at this point…

We eat too much and need much less than what we eat to comfort ourselves. If you work hard, your body will ask for more, but when we sit and play video games, our body asks out of boredom…

I realize that I am in an extreme situation, but it has dawned on me that your body asks for what it needs. Such as extra, vitamin D when the sun is almost non existent. Thus cottage cheese and cheese is in demand. Vitamin C is demanded from long days of isolation and limited varieties of food and thus citrus fruit is expected…

As I write this, I am spitting mandarin seeds in a small cup… 🙂

I installed a very powerful outside light yesterday. It worked perfect, but I have to get an outdoor breaker box to wire in the system. I need to run an outside line to have electrical usage where I need it. Such as the chicken coop, wood shed, outhouse and usage in general…

paper-coffee-cup-128x128Well I need to go. I have tons of work to do on my websites, outside and I am trying to draw up plans to rebuild the outhouse, chicken coop and where to put a wood shed. I also have to start splitting wood and stacking for next winter. I can not understand anyone who could be board in life, with so much to be done. I am waiting patiently for the snow to melt so that I can turn the garden over and get it ready. I have so much to do and not enough time to get it done…

I guess that is life…
