    It's Pact Day 4 Aleta !!!!!!! ♥ ;-D ♥

    I want to thank everyone that has sent thoughts, prayers, Healing White Light & all ♥ I am feeling better. Not quite well yet, but much better. The sore throat has come along slowly. At times it has seemed like it's not getting any better but it is better tonight than it was last night & I have to admit that it was a little better last night than the night before. The fact that my throat is where the greatest problem is, tells me that my throat chakra is out of balance. I guess I have not been speaking my truth as much as I thought. Need to work on that!!!

    Chelsea is feeling much better too. She has been eating all her dinner. But she was a brat tonight. I had a little canned white chicken meat left so I divided it between the 2 dogs by mixing it into their dinner. Maybe 3 tablespoons each. Old mama Xena ate all her dinner without a problem. HOWEVER: Chelsea managed to pick all the chicken meat out of her dinner & eat very little of her regular food along with it. She walked away from almost the whole bowlful & there was nary a speck of chicken in it!!!. She's looking a little thinner than usual after not eating much for a few days. I would think she'd be hungry. Shouldn't have added the chicken. She was happy & excited & doing the 'dinner dance' as my daughter refers to it (she hops up & down as I am serving it & I call her my 150 pound jackrabbit). She probably would have eaten it all up the same as last night. But then I remembered the chicken & mixed it in!!! I told her very emphatically that I won't do that again!!!

    The problem 'tenant' is still not answering my calls or returning them. I'm trying to set something up with her ex to go over there & then call me from his phone & hand her the phone. My ex has spoken to him & says he is willing to do this. My ex is still out of town. Just as well that he took a break & went on a trip with a friend that drives a truck & had deliveries/pick-ups in NorCal. He called me last night & they were in Lodi. Good thing they weren't stuck there, heh?

    Today's Challenge:
    Hold your right hand flat and slowly lift each finger 1 at a time, and repeat with the left hand.

    OK. I've been doing this challenge on & off all day. Been working on those ring fingers to get them to do a better job. NO SLACKING RING FINGERS!!! The more you 'work' them the better they work ♥ ;-D ♥

    Peace, Love & Healing White Light ♥ ;-D ♥
    And Magical Dreams Tonight ♥ ;-D ♥

    Here's a recipe I meant to post for yesterday's challenge!!!
    VERY GREEN AVOCADO-TAHINI DIP
    http://www.vegkitchen.com/r...
    Kind of a marriage of guacamole and hummus, and infused with a good amount of tender greens, this rich dip makes a unique statement. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh pita, pita chips, raw veggies, or any combination thereof.

    Today's Challenge:
    Share 1 way that you save energy in your home or at work.

    I save energy at home in several ways. Won't name them all. Just a few. I shut down my laptop & unplug it when I'm finished with it for the night. I keep all my small appliances unplugged except when using them. I pretty much always turn off lights when I leave a room unless my hands are really full & then I come back right away & turn them off!!! T.Vs. & cable boxes are unplugged because I never use them anymore. Haven't used them in years & keep meaning to call & learn my other billing options & have the cable stopped entirely. The price was a deal on a 'bundle' & I'm told the prices on my internet & phone will increase when I remove the cable. Have to call them. SOMEDAY!!!!!
    I don't have A/C & I'm sure that saves energy to just have a couple of fans.
    I also use flashlights a lot in the evening & early morning. Especially in the summer because lights increase the already high temperatures.

    NOTE: Also if awakened in the night or earlier than usual, flashlights keep the light level low & increase the possibility of going back to sleep easier. The more light that's on & in your eyes, the more you are awakened & it will be more difficult to go back to sleep. One of many tips I learned years ago about keeping light levels low or as non-existent as possible for better sleep.

      LOL! I have learned to use my elbow for turning off and on lights when my hands are full, especially when using the cane. Part of my switches have those that are touch and you don't have to actually switch them. They are very easy to use. ...see more

    List 2 healthy dips for veggies, such as salsa, hummus, Greek yogurt, or peanut butter.

    There are a number of things I like for dipping & I don't think I can pick only two of them to share. I love hummus & have recently been learning to make my own. I like to use hummus instead of salad dressing to amp up the protein. And there is one store-bought variety I really like. It is Majestic (brand) Sprouted Hummus. I have newly discovered the flavor Almond/Date & it is quite delicious!!!
    ♥ ;-D ♥
    And if I'm really lazy I fall back on Whole Foods 365 label Organic Refried Beans with roasted green chilli & lime. BPA-free can. They're only 99 cents a can & I buy them by the case & get 10% off. Good, cheap, quick, healthy nutrition & go with almost anything!!! Yes, even fruit. Surprisingly good with apple & always goes well with avocado!!! Great as a dollop on a salad instead of dressing!!! And a case will last me awhile. Actually, maybe a month. I can often easily eat a can in a day!!! it's been years now & so far I don't get tired of them!!!
    ♥ ;-D ♥
    And guacamole is always a fave. So is salsa.♥ ;-D ♥
    And how about hummus,(or the refried beans) & guacamole & salsa mixed together? Fab as a salad dressing!!! I LIKE IT!!!
    ♥ ;-D ♥
    And I always have nut butters in the house. Sunflower seed butter, almond butter, cashew butter & peanut butter with flax & chia seeds.

    New Pact Day 1 Aleta !!!!!!! ♥ ;-D ♥

    Just plain tired folks. Still not quite well & back in balance. Sore throat was gone for a few days & then came back & actually worsened a bit. Been battling an on & off headache for days & I seriously don't like over-the-counter pain meds like ibuprofen. Prefer herbal teas, homeopathics, acupressure, relaxation, meditation, etc.

    Chelsea, my big dog, has been sick too. She started throwing up the day before yesterday in the morning. Had no interest in her dinner that night. Just drank a lot of water & didn't throw up anymore that I know of. I tried to make sure I kept the water bowls even cleaner than usual. Yesterday I was able to interest her in a little vegetable broth with some canned chicken meat. VERY LITTLE!!! This morning she wanted more of the vegetable broth & I gave her a little of her kibble softened with more vegetable broth & some more of the canned chicken. She ate some. Not all. Tonight she ate what she had left this morning that I had saved in the fridge along with about a half a can of what she normally eats a whole can of with some canned tuna & about half the dry kibble she usually eats. Hoping she'll be back to her regular meal tomorrow.

    The problems out on my other property are still weighing heavily upon me but I am trying to put a priority on me getting myself & my dog well first. The problem tennant has yet to answer or return any of my calls & I call everyday, often more than once. My ex seems to understand that I'm not coming out there to talk to her until I get myself & the dog well!!! He is going to take a little trip up north with a friend for a couple of days starting tomorrow night so he is temporarily placated.

    Today's Challenge:
    Post a photo that represents a positive health change you've made.

    Becoming a vegetarian almost 50 years ago was probably the most significant health change I made except for then going fully vegan more recently. Becoming a vegetarian made a huge difference in my physical & mental health & also greatly enhanced my spiritual well-being. I would never have imagined just how great these differences would be. When I went vegetarian, many people asked me if it was for health reasons or for the animals. I assured everyone it was for health reasons & not for the animals. Even though I had never really cared much for meat & subconsciously did not like the idea of eating animals because I loved them quite dearly, I could not seem to admit that I was doing it for the animals as well as for my health. But after just a few weeks of not eating meat & feeling such a greater sense of spiritual elevation I told people that I had evolved to a place where I was doing it for the animals & that I did not want to eat them because I loved them. I never looked back or missed meat!!! It's been almost 50 years now!!!
    I forgot to make a note of when I went vegan. I think it has been about 8 years now. In about 2 years, when I hit the 50 years vegetarian mark, I will just consider that I'm 10 years vegan. I know I would have gone vegan much sooner if I had known the truth about the egg & dairy industries. I learned the truth once I got a computer & the internet. I felt awful when I learned the truth & realized how I had been contributing to the suffering of those animals all those years, even though I wasn't eating them. When I saw the videos of the little, newly hatched baby roosters being harshly handled & tossed onto a conveyor belt that took then to be dropped into a grinder alive & chirping that was it for me. There was more, but that was enough!!! No more eggs!!! And seeing the mama cows crying for days for their babies that were taken away & the baby calves crying for their mamas was so sad. And to see those poor spent dairy cows sent to slaughter after just 4 or 5 years because they are crippled & used up from back to back pregnancies & constant milking when they can easily live at least 20 or more years when not treated that way!!!There was more but that was enough!!! No more dairy!!!

    Soooo..... No longer eating animals made HUGE positive changes for me. Positive physical & mental health changes AND spiritual health changes!!!

    Pact Day 5 Aleta !!!!!!! ♥ ;-D ♥
    TIME FOR POINTS !!!!!!! ♥ ;-D ♥

    Today's Challenge:
    List 3 ways to get physical activity while you're at home.

    Chelsea, Nala, Xena. Keeping up with my 3 fur children is a workout!!! Feeding the 2 dogs (Chelsea & Xena) is a bit of a challenge. Without going into a lot of detail it's just so cramped in this house & I have not been able to work out a better plan. I have to lift & move quite a few things to get to their food & measure it out & then put everything back. Whew!!! And keeping their water bowls & buckets clean & full of fresh water is a chore as well!!! Especially in the hot weather we have had this summer!!! They are great big messy drinkers & the water bowls become slime pits quite rapidly!!! Also Xena is getting on in age & I need to keep remembering to get her up & outside frequently to avoid 'accidents'. And she often needs a little help getting up & does weigh about 150 pounds!!!
    Then there's Nala the cat who is a little easier, but not that much. Even at 12 years old she is a very mischievous girl!!! And she's a Bengal & they tend to like water. She likes to put her paws in the water bowls (especially the dog's water bowl after I have just cleaned & refreshed it) & splash the water around!!! And get up in the sink & get into cups & bowls that are soaking. She seems to prefer to drink water from a dirty bowl that is soaking than her own clean water bowl!!! I even had to find some lids to fit the buckets in the bathroom that I use to flush the toilet or she gets in those too!!!
    For those who don't know.... I don't have a working kitchen sink & I have to wash my dishes in the bathroom sink. I generally pour most of the water I use from those dishes off into buckets & use that water to flush the toilet. Why waste it down the drain when the toilet is right there? But it's dirty and/or soapy & I don't
    want her drinking it & that's what she likes to do. She likes to stick her paw in it & then lick the water off her paw. I worry that the soap will cause her to have diarrhea!!! So the buckets have lids!!! LOL
    Just now I went down the hall to put my dinner bowl soaking & she comes galloping after me & jumps up on the toilet (Lid closed. Have to keep it that way because of her!!!) & waits for me to fill that bowl to soak. As soon as I walk away she is sailing through the air from the toilet to the sink to drink that water!!!
    I sing that line from that old song to her. "Cuz I love that dirty water, Oh Oh Boston you're my home."

    Peace, Love & Healing White Light ♥ ;-D ♥
    And Magical Dreams Tonight ♥ ;-D ♥

    Today's Challenge:
    Eat 1 food rich in vitamin E, such as cooked spinach, almonds, asparagus, or peanut butter.

    15 FOODS WITH VITAMIN E:
    https://www.globalhealingce...

    WHY IS VITAMIN E IMPORTANT TO YOUR HEALTH?
    https://www.globalhealingce...

    AND HERE'S AN INTERESTING FYI:
    Raw Walnuts Have 15X More Antioxidant Potency Than Vitamin E
    https://www.globalhealingce...

    I took a look at several charts that show the best sources of vitamin E & also looked at some of the best vegan sources of vitamin E. They are mostly things I eat regularly anyway!!! Sweet potatoes are there & I made a sweet potato & bean stew for dinner last night & ate half. I still have the other half for later. Tomatoes are there. I had tomatoes in my vegan omelette this morning. Avocados are there & I have a half here to make a dollop or two of guacamole. Sunflower seeds & pine nuts are there & I have both & sunflower seed butter. Almonds are there & I have almond flour tortillas. I will heat several of them & spread them with sunflower seed butter & guacamole made from the half an avocado. Maybe chop up a few pine nuts & sprinkle them in there. Olives are there. I can add a handful along the side of my plate. I love olives & eat them regularly. All kinds of olives!!!

    Now that I think about it, I should eat the other half of the sweet potato & bean stew tonight & have the olives on the side. I can have the tortillas with sunflower seed butter & guacamole another day. Perhaps an afternoon snack for tomorrow!!!
