I have mixed feelings my little plants, I tried so hard to keep alive, and curse you polar vortex wish I could just punch you in the nose for murder, may you burn in lava, urrr freeze to death, don’t know which is best punishment for you. now I am down to about 10 roses, now to figure out what plants to replace these with,  so my friends what lovelies has mr creepy polar vortex murdered in your yard?

meet my new friend

butterflies magnolia will this plant live through the winter? we shall see okay I am editing this, I think I jumped the gun here, I can just kick myself for not waiting one more week, my new dawn not only survived the tops are still alive and budding out like crazy, good think I did not cut it all the way down to the ground, so now not only do I still have my lovlie the new dawn I still have my crepe myrtles too, they are budding out on the old wood near the ground, yea, they survived, my wisteria is still alive and so is my red rose. I am just flabbergasted by how tough there were, I underestimated them, I really could kick myself for cutting my red one down to the ground, and I am glad I did not cut the tree near the garage yet down, nor the fig either. wow, gardening it is a joy, a pain and frustration when you make stupid mistakes like not waiting enough time. boy did I learn my lesson. not sure of the butterfly bushes they do not have any leafing out yet. my new dawn I cut down about half I still have some of the thick stem so hopfully it will still bloom beautifully.

vitad3 update

Hi there everyone beautiful person out there, this is my update, as you know I have been trying to follow a fairly slow carb diet (which I am enjoying more than I thought) secondly I have been dosing with vitad3 gels with wool oil, okay when I started this whole thing I started out at 40,000 iu working down over several months this past year or so, (as you can see above if you can read it why these dosages seem okay for me) but several times after I start to see results and feel so much better sleeping better reduced apetite for high sugary foods go down, and more energy and less fuzzy fog etc I lower the dose so I don’t over do it, well every time I did after a few weeks the symptoms start to return and I have to up it again for a couple of weeks to see the symptoms abate (I did this about 3 times) so now I am back at 25,000 iu, per day, 5000 per day was not enough, too low for maintenance, 10,000 also was too low, I took this dosage for a couple of weeks and seen no improvement.

I have been dosing in the 20,000 iu range for about 2 weeks or so and I am starting to feel so much better. my appetite has normalized (don’t need to constantly munch) I sleep through the night again without the hunger or nervousness of low blood sugar symptoms even tho on paper I do not have hypoglycemia.

my periods are starting to normalize (until I started to eat a high soy product I did not know I was eating, I cannot handle even a hint of soy itmesses up my periods makes them last longer, heavier, more crampy and pms is worse as well) so I have reduced that, flaxseed and it’s oil does the same thing.  But my mood is better too. I am starting to have a training effect, improvments in stamina, breathing and etc when I exercise. I do hope you all can read those notes I scanned, tried to get a copy into a word processing document but it only pasted jibberjabber language.

enjoy. oh here is a picture of what is happening as of now,

unfortnantly we cut our vacation short, I was just so bored, my hubby couldn’t get to any fishing spots, even the private piers were closed due to federal consessions, whatever that means,  we had no access to refuges, swimming holes, beach access was by some parking on side of road or private access which we had permission to use, we couldn’t do anything we had planned and on top of that my monthly decided to pay a visit, could’t of been a worst time for it. no hiking swimming or fishing or bird watching I was only able to get a few pictures, I spent most of the time sitting around the hotel room trying to figure out where to go and what to do. so we just left.

big bummer, frankly I don’t know what the people in governments’ problem is, they simply do not understand who really owns nature.  taxpayers paid for the access roads yet they forget it is not their money. but I guess that is the nature of power, you lose touch with reality and live in a world of delusions. I do have a few pictures to show.

this caladium among many, stayed in the ground all summer Ithought they had died or got eaten by all the chipmunks around here and I gave it up as lost theydecided to pop their little heads up when the weather turned cooler and the days grew shorter, whats up with that? now they are popping up everywhere I had planted them. weird.

autumnsignssept242013 054

figs on my hardy chicago fig tree, pretty cool, don’t plan on eating them just like how they look, do you suppose if I took the seeds I could grow another fig tree and would it produce to type? or would I get some different type of fig altogether.?

the first four pictures I got with my macro 50 mm lens this close up I used my long lens 500 mm telephoto lens. in fact I was actually closer to them in this tree with teh 50mm but a bit farther away with the long lens. quite a difference, I didnt use my tripod which probably would of removed some of the blur, that lens is heavy!! so I orderd a pack shoulder strap for the camara ot get if off my neck.

here is another
