Summer is Over...Life is Back to Normal

Mercy! The last 23 days have been a blur of activity! Brainstorming, a trip to the Zoo, painting, sewing, gardening and creating new flower beds, waiting at the hospital, changes, anniversary #29, stargazing....

What a difference a meal can make!
A chance viewing of a news story inspired me to brave up and make some changes to my diet. Since that wonderful day when it all came together in clear focus...I now no longer consume, eat or even taste foods containing Gluten or Dairy or Eggs or Corn or Tomato or Onion or Peppers...meats are limited to chicken or fish. My day now begins with a Smoothie created from Carrots, Spinach, Celery, Apples and Cucumber. I eat real great tasting foods just not the ones I used to eat. Yes I miss breads and the other foods I have removed from my diet. But I LOVE the way I am feeling more!!! GONE are migraines, swollen joints, muscle pain, fatigue, sleepless nights, extra weight is melting away and reading glasses are no longer needed to name a few...In just 3 weeks my health is rebounding!!!

With all of the extra sleep I have tons of energy and creative ideas are flowing like flood waters and raging rapids...I am now writing and sketching ideas down so I can get back to them when I have more time. I've been busy!

 I painted the front door and replaced the doorbell
earlier this summer.

Which got me started on a mini-makeover of the front of my favorite thinking spots.
This is the spot where dreams come to life.
I added a few fresh coats of paint and a bit of varnish to create my
"new" porch bench.

A quick peek of some projects from the last three weeks. With all the extra energy I cleaned out closets...and then had to decide what to do with all of the discards.

A new messenger bag created from an old shirt.
Inside, lots of room and 5 hidden pockets!

A new project bag..created from an old shirt.
A perfect size to hold multiple projects and snacks!

There's more to share in the coming days. I'm off now to start a few new projects and catch up with my Blog-Land Family. 3 Weeks away is far to long!

You see an old blue shirt....I see a new market bag.

Happy Saturday!
with love as always,

Carol a.k.a. Beulah


  1. So glad you are feeling better! We really are what we eat. Love the birdie cute!

  2. Wow that sounds like something I should try. Lots of energy eh:) B

  3. Beulah, Thank you so much for your kind words that you left for me this morning. I can't tell you how much they meant to me. I'm so glad that I came by to say thank. I love that you are juicing. I've done that on and off almost 2 years and I do have so much more energy. Just recently, I've been thinking about giving up bread, but haven't made the change yet. I feel like it might be the way to go, to lose a few pounds. Again thanks for the inspiration and thanks for your sweet comment.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit to share your thoughts, ideas and words of encouragement! May your day be filled with overflowing endless hours of Joy blanketed in Love.
