My brother Barry was coming by today to do some work and then go for a dirt bike ride. I was going to go with him but I just didn’t feel up to it.
A reader wanted to know why I’m fasting. To keep it short, it’s because I’m allergic to corn and all it’s derivatives. It’s used in most all foods and drinks and meds so it’s hard to stay away from it especially since lots of it isn’t listed in the ingredients or called something you wouldn’t think was corn.
Anyway there’s no cure except to abstain which is almost impossible. It causes me to have a severe body itch almost constantly so I’m trying the fasting out to see if I can lower the severity of the hit and also just to see what it can do for me. So far there are some positive things but I’m still checking it out.
What I’ve learned about fasting so far is it’s benefits could benefit just about everyone as it causes the body to burn up fat that usually just sits there because we eat too much to use it. This can also help remove bad cells in the body before they cause problems. Good for weight loss also if you need it.
I did a ten day fast last time and learned some stuff but thought a couple more days would be good so this time I’m shooting for 12 or 15 days depending how I feel about it. I’m on day 8 right now. I not real hungry but I am getting cravings for some stuff which isn’t to hard to avoid as they pass.
I could go on and on but that will have to do.
Barry takes off
Where’s the wheelbarrow
I was thinking I need to move a bunch more mulch chips into the raspberry patch so I needed the wheelbarrow so looked all over the yard for it but couldn’t locate it so I looked again and found it where I’d put it away, here. Maybe I shouldn’t put things away.
My gates in the chicken pens are real low to the ground to keep the new born chicks from getting out. The chickens move dirt and stuff in front of them and then they drag when opening. This one needs digging out so I got the shovel out.
I was out in the chicken house when I heard Tom say I have a project for you so I went out to see what it was.
So I looked at it a bit and determined the shaft bearings are worn out so now I have to figure out how to get the bearing out. I put that aside for now.
Got it done
That was pretty much my day just puttering around the yard taking my time doing stuff.
