i had a nice animal free dinner tonight...
Carol · Nov. 9, 2010
it took all of 3 minutes to open the packages and microwave. i had an individual cup of white minute rice which i added salt, pepper, vegan margarine and a drop of soya sauce to...and i had 6 very nice frozen large asparagus spears also microwaved with salt, pepper and vegan margarine.
it was easy, it was tasty, it was healthy and for desert i am having a handful of green grapes and almonds for the added protein i need.
omg! i am actually eating healthy! (for me.)
ok so it looks like the US dogs are in fact coming this week but they are being driven directly to saints so that is easy! there are the 4 originals only coming...prince, thunder, tina-fey and sweetie..i am assuming that last picture i got of the horribly matted little guy was in fact probably an old viral plea. not sure which day they are arriving but you can be sure i will let you know when they do get here cuz i will be totally overwhelmed with trying to settle 4 brand new old dogs all in the same time period.
i finally got around to re-booking jelly's and hootie's mammary tumor removal surgeries...and hootie's and sydney's vet checks and doris's re-check that got all screwed up last week. now i just have to book in peter for his major dental extractions and bart and chester's FIV/FeLV retesting and we are up to date with everything. the new US guys i will give a couple of weeks to settle and watch before i book them in....i find it is better to take my time in assessing them so that when we go in i have my list of anything i am concerned about that i have seen since they arrived.
it saves multiple back and forth trips to the vets if i don't rush them in before i have had a chance to really get to know and "see" them.
i find a couple of interesting things since i stopped eating animal products....one is since i only eat small amounts at a time because either it takes effort to think of and then to make or it is really quick and boring...like toast, or dry granola bars or fruit or nuts.... so i find i am eating small bits, several times each day. i think i am actually with all of the in between things, eating more than i usually do. but the good news is...in the first 10 days of veganism.... i have lost 10 pounds....it probably won't continue but it is nice extra treat anyhow!
well...i do believe it is a soak in a nice hot tub tonight and listen to some music and read some more of that elephant book i started. the animals are pretty well settled, i cleaned up their accidents and sent them all outside in case they were thinking of making more...i did up the mp guys as soon as i got home so until it is diabetic/bedtime meds...i think i am done for awhile.
