My lentil, green onion, cucumber, grape tomatoes, sweet orange belle pepper with fresh dill and parsley was once again a hit at our community pitch-in. I use white vinegar and olive oil for the marinade and allow to marinate overnight. I do not add the tomatoes until time to serve and gently toss them in. I used red lentils (I sprout my own) rather than brown ones and liked it better. The presentation was also more pleasing. This is a salad that is a keeper!!!

@user_ch53e9c09 Steel cut are my choice no matter how I chose to fix them.

There are those times when nothing seems to help. This is the time to ride the waves waves and not fight the tide. Still observing those Decorah eaglets on youtube.

3 days ago · Would like to know people's experience using Fosomax. in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I was recently prescribed Fosamax which increased muscle pain even taking only 1 70 mg. per week. Not sure increased pain is worth any benefits it may provide. I also have fibromyalgia and TMJ so the jaw pain was even worse. Here to try and learn about bone strengthening medication.

There are those times we need to persevere and settle for what we have and not what we want. Not an easy task.

Wed, May 15 7:46am · "WHY BOTHER?" What can we do when we are stuck? in Depression & Anxiety

Well, depression and anxiety are a challenge. Add chronic pain to the mix and the batter just no longer wants to rise. Weather is warming and time to get out and plant some flowers. Not at all motivated. Won't be able to even think about my secret garden until mid-June as will be house/dog sitting while son and family go on vacation. Thinking I am not up to doing the job. I can't sleep well there because of fear. Sounds silly but my fear is real. I am not comfortable there far from help should I need it. I don't talk about how bad the pain is and my fears of being far from help. If I were to fall and get hurt because of those useless dogs no one would even know. Many family members with keys. Not a good thing for me. I don't want to ruin things for their vacation.

@merpreb I no longer enter art shows. Just became to overwhelming. I now enjoy doing what I prefer and trying new things. Not as productive now and I have never been competitive. I entered juried shows and did well. Never attended the presentations. Not my thing. Typically my originality was admired.
