Charmion, Linn has joined us in that modified fasting; she is reporting a general trend downward also. Eat Fast and Live Longer is a British program kind of like the PBS science shows we get here (and I saw it first when PBS broadcast it one summer). The method I adopt starts about 38 minutes into the program, the alternating days and when the calories are low on the alternate days (or, as people sometimes choose, just two days a week). I think Linn is able to do periods, like from noon to 7pm for her eating, and the long period of time (from 7pm to noon) is helping her. It seem to have lost the knack of waiting until noon to eat, I think it had to do with the Prednisone I was on for 18 months that had to be taken in the morning with food. I'm almost a year out from that but still really feel it if I don't eat something early.

I tend to eat very small meals, or have one modest meal and then fruit or veggies later in the day. I need protein for this to work.

My ceiling reconstruction was pretty radical, but nowhere as involved or expensive as your patio. Other than enjoying new paint, my office is restored and there isn't any new space or feature (other than pretty paint) it's the same ol' house. I am also saving again for the thing that I originally intended to work on this summer - replacing more fence around the yard. The south side looks good (I am still pulling out fence posts inside the yard along the path of the old fence) but the north side is falling down.
