Spring can be a challenge for me. I am eager to get things done after the winter melts away. However, weather changes heighten my MS symptoms. I know they will calm down as the weather becomes more consistent. In the meantime, I fight extra fatigue and pain. I have recurring numbness in my right leg that is super annoying. Anytime my legs bother me, I get a little extra anxious that it might be the start of stupid MS affecting my mobility.
In other fun news, about 9 weeks ago my niece found a stray cat and took it in. Friday it presented her with a thank you gift - four kittens. They are so cute and she is a good little mama. I would like to go on public record - we are not getting one of the kittens! Sure, they are tempting, but I have a big hang up about the litter box situation. And do I really need more pet hair? Did I mention, the kittens are adorable??
Like every spring, I have the gardening bug. Saturday, In my mind, the sooner I get it planted the sooner I will be enjoying the fresh veggies. Should I just roll the dice and hope we don't get another killing frost? Not quite yet. To get my gardening fix. I stopped by the Community Feed and Seed to see if there is anything new that I "need". They have a great selection of bulk seeds, but I didn't buy any this time. I still have quite a few seeds leftover from last year. .
Why is it that you put a shell on a slug and it becomes adorable, but without a shell they are slimy and gross??? My garden might need one of these little guys.
Now this is embarrassing. It turns out my green thumb is not so green. These are my broccoli seedlings... .
I also bought unions. I mostly grow them for the green tops, but the selection was so pretty I am going to let some grow to maturity. .
Our weekend ended with a grill full of delicious dinner. I cooked a little extra asparagus and peppers so I would have leftovers to put in the egg muffins I am going to make in the morning.
Morning update: The egg muffins made with the grilled veggies from last night. I added a little sausage, cilantro and a sprinkle of cheese. Each one comes out to 42 calories. A good grab and go snack.
In other news, I think we are going to be looking for a half marathon soon. My husband ran 10 miles this morning!! I still can't process how quickly his running is progressing. If you have any advice on the half marathon, please share. I am especially interested in nutrition advice.I have to make sure my man is properly fueled during training :) He runs first thing in the morning and prefers to eat afterwards. We are trying to balance his desire to lose a little more weight and his need to get enough calories to support his running.
