ED2: Nightshades

After the past few days of being hectic and stressful, I have decided to wait until tomorrow to try nightshades, to give my body and brain a little break.

Tomorrow, I will have a tomato with breakfast, a bell pepper in my salad for lunch, and a baked potato with dinner.

I am still evaluating if I feel like the dairy products were or were not a problem. I may withhold dairy for a week and then try again, but I will let you know if I decided to do that. Dairy is a big part of our lives and cutting it out has thus far been pretty difficult. That is the one thing that I do crave in my diet. I am surprised I'm not dreaming of chocolate, but I hardly give it a second thought lately.

ED2: Milk and Cheese

On Saturday, I had 3 separate cups of our raw milk and had no problem. On Monday, I had 3 - 1/2" pieces of cheese throughout the day.

Sorry for not updating, but we were visiting Eric's sister and had no Wifi connection and then we were at the Columbus Zoo yesterday, all day. We are now back in our own beds without hot water. Our hot water tank decided to spring a leak while we were gone. I am praising God that Eric is on vacation this week!

ED2: Yogurt

Today, will be 3- 1/2 cup servings of naturally sweetened (by me) yogurt throughout the day.
The sugar day came and went. Surprisingly no reactions! So, we will keep on the mystery trail.

My version of a half shirt

A couple weeks ago, I posted about a new blog I found. Through that blog I heard about half shirts, to make out fits modest, that weren't so already.
Last week, we had our "break week" from homeschooling, so with all the other sewing projects Tabitha and I worked on, I made 2 half shirts from the Ringger Peasant Shirt pattern, that I seem to go to lately.

This first one is made from bleached muslin. I modified the sleeve so I didn't have to add elastic.
The second half shirt is made from Red Rooster quilting fabric I got off of EBay 2 years ago.
