For those off today and partaking in events of any kind, I hope you have a super day.
I am enjoying a four day weekend. We are in Connecticut for dinner with the BF, Jim, his husband, Ken, and their hodgepodge of guests (friends, family, and other.) We’ll head home tomorrow.
While Ken is an amazing cook, and there has been a constant flow of food and cocktails since we arrived yesterday, I can’t possibly keep up. With all my digestive issues (Crohns, Gastroparesis, and Gluten Allergy) if I actually tried to indulge as much as everyone else, I’d die. So I sample small amounts of the safe foods here and there throughout the day, space out my cocktails, drink lots of water, and pop downstairs into our guest room to rest for a few minutes now and then to let my system work it’s sluggish magic. I don’t mind the constant bounty balancing act, I just wish my weight was more in line with someone who averages one meal a day, cocktails sparingly, and rarely snacks. All this navigation of nibbles, nosh, and no-nod would be worth it more if I at least got to be svelt because of it. Ah well, if that Annual visitor with the bag of toys can be jolly despite his size, (to quote Judy Garland) “why can’t I?”
Enjoy your birds, or what have you.

I misread this blog title initially and thought it was Foot Fest. What can I say? Tuck in!
Cool graphics! It looks as though you’re enjoying the holiday. Naked hugs!
We have a friend with Crohns you basically can’t eat out at any restaurant, and must be super careful when eating anywhere but home, including our place. I feel for you, but am happy to see you’re keeping a positive attitude. Cheers!
I try hard to not let it get me down, taking an “it is what it is” attitude. But, sometimes, it dies still get to me.
