The Week that Was

It was the week that was ALL about the Iditarod…and not much else…

though I did manage to get a few things done mid-week when almost everyone took their complusory 24 rest at the same time….

It was the week Christy decided she was going to follow the Iditarod too and drew a photo of her favourite musher Aliy Zirkle winning the race… she’s currently coming first…

and the week I cut out all the nasty additives out of my diet and saw an immediate reduction in my arthritis pain… time will tell…

It was the week that started out with sunshine…

which meant I could hang my washing outdoors…

but then the rain and cold returned and it was time to make some pumpkin soup…

But the sun did return….and with it this most glorious sunset…

    Libby!!! Where did you get the mockingjay pin? Byron is a huge fan (he made me read the books and I was hooked as well), he has his midnight screening tickets and I would love to surprise him with this.

    Hello Libby
    The weeks are flying by aren’t they – its funny how we think nothing much happened, then when its all written down its quite a surprise as to how much we actually have done.
    I’d be interested to hear if you have actually pinpointed any particular additives that may have caused your problems
    Take care
