Just the tree
December 7, 2011 § 6 Comments
All the effort we’ve made so far this year for the holidays is to just put up the Christmas Tree with a few lights. But I’m torn. I kind of like it so simple like this. I also like it fully decorated. I sort of want to just make a few simple decorations and call it good. This year our December is not scheduled up nearly as full as in the past. And I am enjoying that. Every year I dream of taking two or more weeks off to avoid all of the holiday hustle & bustle and just enjoy the season. This is about the closest we have ever come to slowing down and just enjoying…
For everyone who has been wondering about the outcome from my allergy test… I am allergic to eggs, bananas, whey, cranberries & pineapple. The whey is kind of throwing me because whey is the liquid portion of dairy. And I am not allergic to casein which is the solid portion of dairy. So, most cheeses are fine for me. But when I search the internet for whey allergies everyone seems to lump it all together and call it dairy. I am extremely happy that I can continue eating bread & cheese! And disappointed that most chocolate things contain whey. I’ll have to search for some vegan chocolate recipes to make to satisfy that chocolate craving! And while I like bananas, cranberries & pineapple, it won’t be much of a hardship to give those up. As for eggs… I am undecided in how I feel about that. For now I’m just hoping that the eczema will clear up.
Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season!
