They are still alive

Back in September of 2022 I decided to after many years try having house plants again. My brother and his wife had sent me a beautiful peace lily when my daughter passed away and that was my start.

Some how these are surviving. I think it is a blessing rather than what I am doing that they are thriving. I have forgotten just about all I ever knew about raising house plants so I have done a lot of talking to the plants and praying.

This plant was about 4 to 5 inches tall when I purchased it. I have re-potted it twice. It out grew the pot quickly. I don’t remember the name of the plant.

The peace lily has outgrown its pot and needs to be re-potted it is beginning to put out blooms so that will need to wait a bit. I hope it does as well being re-potted as the other plant did.

I am very pleased with these two plants they are the ones that are doing the best. Two of the plants I purchased did not make it. I will replace them with other kinds when I decide what I want to try next and hope for success with them. I am thankful for the internet to help with how to care for the plants, especially those I am not familiar with or not had before.

Moving right along

Learning a new way of eating is so far doing pretty well. I’m learing ways to use oats, rice and soy. Some of what I have experienced with has turned out to my liking. You that have sent links to websites with recipes or made suggestions has been a big help and much appreciated.

I made chili using ground turkey instead of beef. I do not use tomatoes in chili. The chili was tasty and I enjoyed it very much. I have always liked Frito chili pie so I didn’t know if I would like the chili with turkey and without cheese. I sprinkled a few Fritos (they are gluten free) on the chili and did not miss the cheese at all. Since Fritos are very salty I did not salt the chili.

The ready to eat gluten free breads I do not like, I tried different brands. I have ordered some gluten free flour and baking mix that my sister told me about. I will make biscuits, pancakes and waffles with it.

I’ve found a dairy free milk replacement that works great on the gluten free cereals. I am going to experiment with it to see if I can do my own recipes to make some foods that I enjoy. I am hoping whatever I want to make will not know the difference in the milk replacement and milk. 🙂

Feel free to send links or recipes you think may be of help to me. All help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

Stay well and safe everyone. Hugs and blessings to all!
