A happy day to you! We had such a fun time yesterday, enjoying the company of our sweet mother-and-father-and-sister-in-law, that we wanted to share it with you.
~*Grandma and Grandpa Graham*~
Aunt Shannon and her date, Frankie (She says she normally likes taller men, but she made an exception this time, just for us.)~
Chinese stir-fry, soba noodles, brown rice, and spring rolls were the entree~
Oops! It looks like we mis-judged Grandpa's height a bit~
And before the program there were little gifts of unsweetened organic chocolate with agave-sweetened gummy bears (they taste yummy together)! We are grateful that there are many sugar-free treats available today.
We were so glad that it was sunny enough yesterday to air out the cottage and play outside, since it looks like this outside today.
We were asked for more information about our diet. We are, for the most part, vegetarians, just because our bodies don't do well with meat (It makes AnnaMarie's feet tingle, which is not good for a diabetic). We do eat it on occasion, and certainly would never judge anyone else who does! My father was an avid hunter and meat-eater, and I love wild game, but I can tell that my body is more sluggish after eating it. Sometimes when I have morning sickness, I do crave it (especially fish), and honor my body's cravings.
We do use meat substitutes such as Morning Star Farms and Quorn brands, but only occasionally, as they taste a little too "processed" for everyday use. We focus on getting as much fresh produce in our diets are possible, and are really looking forward to spring with its abundance of greens and mushrooms!
We wish you and yours the very best today, from all of us at Birdsong Cottage.
