Sugar AV is driving me nuts. But I've made it to PJ's and BBT time so I guess I'll be OK tonight. Have a good one friends!

Good that you posted Sam.

Small steps for me folks, small but productive,. I now use my car to think in...hundred's of k's- at legal speeds in unused parts of the Beautiful Adelaide Hills- sharp cut gorges, running creeks, cold biting air- and me and my thoughts. Meetings of late have not been terribly productive for me- and yes, I know it is me- not the meetings..but to repeat a fav. saying at meetings- the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I still go- but not heaps, 2 or 3 a week. The art school is a new phase- the recovery program, the art group there, the volunteer work are now done. The sad part is the only people I have not bothered telling are close family..as they do not reply or want my presence at the moment. Apart from being plagued with chronic migraines- acceptance of this- is a new step towards letting go.

Mornin' Marchers. Startin' fluid in hand ready for the day. (sugar free hopefully!)

Hope you have a great day Sam!

PJ I forgot the name of your car! What is it?

Mornin' Marchers. Hope everybody is ok this morning. I got startin' fluid so I'm fine.

Interesting time at the grocery yesterday. I actually picked up a package of triple chocolate brownies and almost put them in my shopping cart. Sugar addiction is VERY real!!!

But I got out ok. Gave the liquor isle the ole Casey salute. Guess I'll start giving the Bakery one too!

Have a great day everybody.

Evening!

Sober tonight but it was a bit rough getting here. Grateful though and I certainly never regret it. Funny how that works.

Anyways just home from a walk with Charlie. It’s starting to get hot here again. Into the 40’s by Saturday. Meh. I shouldn’t complain. It’ll be winter before you know it.

It is quiet in here. Maybe we need a roll call.

Well off to charge my Fitbit and meditate.

Love you guys!

I am thinking a hole in the ground- and have stopped all diet fizzy drinks, diet cordial and reduced aspartamine in tea/coffee by 2/3..to see if they are migraine triggers. Will see.

A good day- final day at recovery art. I gave the artist who runs the program 2 of my humble works, remembering she commented on one having colours she liked (she said she was going to frame it..perhaps) and another one- both in a mosiac look. The second on having the word 'hope' hidden in it.. We have tentatively put in a plan to finish the outside mural (once the paperwork, then the royal tour by a hardware conglomerate donating paint and probably some media) at the first contact point for recovery clients (communal living in the heart of the city, gated) over Xmas- in semester break. If all goes to plan.
Support to all.

AND...
some days I look at my bike, patiently mocking me with it's presence..it is in the dining area- no where to put outside, the little tool shed having a large a/c in front of it- so cannot open door. I dry clothes on the bike now...when ever I feel a pang of guilt..it soon disperses- especially since it is mid winter here- and in the rain and darker, colder conditions- I turn the heater on and feel happy not only that I am warm, but that nobody has nearly killed me on any given bike ride....
How are you doing Sam?

Hi guys!! Iíve been binge watching one of my favorite Mexican chefs for the last 2 days trying to get my cooking mojo back. I just realized itís summer that makes me hate cooking. I cook up a storm in fall, winter and spring. Luckily I had a ton of laundry to do so in my binge watching itís all almost done 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Sam I hope you feel better!

How hot is it in your neck of the woods BBG? Itís ďonlyĒ 98 here today. Last Friday it was 114 🤮 🔥🔥🔥
