DIY Food & Drink Health Life


I had a fun weekend. I did a ton of stuff and yet felt completely present and enjoyed it all. Went to a yard sale a friend was having and totally scored some amazing stuff. Went out to see Little Hurricane at the Casbah with The Heavy Guilt and Hills Like Elephants. I had seen Little Hurricane before and they delivered yet again. The Heavy Guilt was a complete surprise. They were all awesome, but the percussionist stole the show if you ask me. That guy had some serious tricks up his sleeve. Plus a chunky necklace and a pick in his hair. Who isn’t going to be entertained by that?

On Sunday I went to my first Fermenter’s Club meeting. I’ll do a post on what I learned. It was super fun and nerdy. I even went full nerd and bought a t-shirt. One of my good friends that I’ve known since I was ten had 4 hours to kill before flying back to Colorado and we went to a craft faire that my other friend had a booth at. Good times.

I also made 2 of the three recipes I shopped for from What Katie Ate and they were all so good. Another week with Josh migraine free! Life is good.

    WOW. I loved that song and haven't heard of them before. I was wondering what concert you went to after I saw your IG post. 🙂 Also listening to the other band as I write. (I remember The Casbah back in the day….)

    I definitely want you to post about the Fermenter's Club. I tried looking up a Vegas chapter but only found beer brewers.

    Okay… so why is Josh migraine free? Do you think it was simply from cleansing out his system with the juice? I'm very curious about this! Do tell…

    so happy to hear about the lack of migraines! Wow. You definitely had an awesome weekend, and a pain-free dude must be the icing on the cake. Toby visited the ER this w/e with a completely F'd, spazoming back–he's heavily medicated now (at home)–so it's hitting me how difficult it is with a partner totally out of the game, in pain.

    Kim: I will post about the other stuff;)

    Blake: I'm so sorry about Toby. That's terrible. My brother has had back issues since he was 15. I have also since a scooter wreck at 20. Rolfing really has helped me. I love it. I haven't thrown it out since I started going. If he's open to it. I'm sure there are good Rolfers in SF.

    sounds awesome! I am so happy that GAPS is working for Josh! It gives me hope. Are you doing full GAPS now?

    Colleen: We are doing the full GAPS now. Josh still isn't processing parm and complex aged cheeses too well, but we keep trying them every week. Thanks.
