letter-c day 65

I didn’t feel like writing day 64. I’m over the letter-c, I’m over the covid-19. I’m over with this isolation while cancer is dictating my thoughts. I just need normalcy. I needed time with good friends sitting across the table from each other.

Spaghetti and meatballs with a salad. ❤  Just an everyday meal but it had a bonus. Laughter and good conversation with people I adore. I slept like a baby last night, it’s the first time in I can’t remember when I didn’t wake up in the middle of the night thinking about all the things I need to do so I can focus on recovery.  Thank you .  (You know who you are.)

Two tomatoes, 4 banana peppers, scallions all from my container garden.

I was upset to see the cabbage worm invasion that did a number on my kale. So frustrating to lose a green veggie I love. I took the whole rail planter and dumped it in the compost bin. I know I could continue trying to treat it but at this point, I have lots of Swiss chard and beet greens to enjoy for now. They are handling the heat well and seem to like the dosing of mint tea and dish soap.

I was surprised to see my compost bin temperature at 90 degrees this morning at 8:30. It was warmer than the outside temperature. I gave it a good turn and wet it down a little. I don’t want my good microorganisms cooking.

Hopefully, by the time our move happens the dirt will be ready to put around the roses for the next owner. I’m going to miss my beautiful roses the most. My container planters will be traveling to our next location. I’m tired of thinking about the crap.

Let’s see what good culinary cancer tools we have next.

Mustard seed is an appetite stimulant and a digestive aid. That explains why I’m always hungry when I eat pickles. Dang. Mustard seeds allegedly  slow down cancer growth.

Nutmeg is also an appetite stimulant, digestion aid, nausea reducer, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Nutmeg tastes awesome in cookies, muffins, breads, but did you know it’s awesome on top of oatmeal. I lightly sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg together with diced green apples. Yummy!

The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen by Rebecca Katz and Mat Edelson

I chose a BeeGees song- “Words”   today because of all the things happening in my world. A pending foreclosure, a move impending and a cancer diagnosis. I’m trying not to feel overwhelmed.  That’s why yesterday was so important, my husband and I needed the distraction.

Lyrics
Smile an everlasting smile
A smile can bring you near to me
Don’t ever let me find you down
‘Cause that would bring a tear to me
This world has lost its glory
Let’s start a brand new story now, my love
Right now, there’ll be no other time
And I can show you how, my love
Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I’m here if you should call to me
You think that I don’t even mean
A single word I say
It’s only words and words are all I have
To take your heart away
You think that I don’t even mean
A single word I say
It’s only words and words are all I have
To take your heart away
It’s only words and words are all I have
To take your heart away
It’s only words and words are all I have
To take your heart away
