Just a quick post in the middle of a busy week. Berry picking today with the kids brought in 11 pounds of strawberries for our two families. I'm very excited about it because it means I have plenty of fruit for green smoothies for the next two weeks or so.

PlanetBoxes so far this week (only 2 because Tuesday the weather was bad, so we kept 5-year-old home.)
|Lunch today for 5-year-old: Grapes and blackberries, cheesy broccoli and green beans, ham and cream cheese on half a bagel thin, carrots surrounding boiled egg white halves stuffed with feta and topped with ham, bunny grahams for dessert.|
|Lunch Monday: Bell pepper ducks in a broccoli forest, bagel thin "rainbow" with cream cheese and strawberries, ham "clouds", and spinach grass. Apple, strawberry and raisin salad, Kashi 7-grain crackers with a baby belle cheese.|
I'm having a lot of joint pain these last few days. I'm pretty sure that I'm out of alignment and need to get back to the chiropractor. I haven't been in about a year, and now that we opted out of insurance this year, I won't be able to go quite yet. I'm thinking my symptoms have been heightened by my vegan diet? Not sure if that is feasible, but it's really the only thing that's changed these past few weeks other than the fickle weather? No idea. But, I'm looking hard for an MT job so that I can get my insurance back. I had severe hip dysplasia as a child, and was in a pretty bad car accident when I was 16 that reversed my C-spine (whiplash). Anyway, I'm refusing pain medication for now, but it has been deterring me from strenuous exercise, so I may have to bite the bullet and take some of the prescription anti-inflammatory. Boo :-/
Hope you're all doing great!!
