Runs for Cookies: A New Podcast

I’m so pleased to be scripting this from my mattress! Properly, really it is simply my mattress on the plywood that’s the ground in my bed room proper now, but it surely feels so luxurious to be in my bed room as a substitute of on the sofa in the lounge. Apart from the realm the place the brand new bathe goes to go, I’ve all the subfloor carried out.

Pure luxurious proper right here

The cats have been going loopy as a result of I have never been capable of allow them to within the bed room (the very first thing they’d do is leap down into the crawl area). As I have been working in on the bed room, they sit proper exterior the door. Yesterday, I used to be screwing down the plywood proper in entrance of the door once I noticed a black paw push a small piece of wooden underneath the door–it was so humorous!

I really feel like all of my weblog posts have been rushed these days, and I suppose it is as a result of they have–this complete bed room/toilet mission has been continuous. (I really want to think about a unique identify for it; calling it the bed room/toilet mission is an excessive amount of.)

I used to be desirous about it whereas attempting to sleep (on the sofa once more final evening) and I noticed how humorous it’s in a manner. I wished to shock Jerry whereas he was out of city for the weekend by eradicating the carpet in our bed room and putting in the luxurious vinyl planks that had been left over from the remainder of the home. It feels like so much, however that may have been a fairly easy mission.

If I did not run into any issues. 

I hadn’t considered what I would discover once I ripped up the carpet–and water injury on the ground between the bed room and toilet was in all probability the worst case state of affairs. The bathe was towards the lavatory wall that is was on the opposite facet of my bed room, and the water injury went from toilet to bed room. I knew, as quickly as I noticed it, that I used to be going to have an enormous mess on my palms.

I actually wished to only put the carpet again and neglect that I noticed something! Haha. However it wasn’t one thing we might ignore, particularly with mildew rising there. The simplest option to actually repair every thing was to take away the subfloor, the bathe, and a few partitions. *eye roll*

Since we needed to take away the bathe anyway, and we have been needing a brand new one for some time, we’re going to rearrange the lavatory a bit. As a substitute of placing the brand new bathtub/bathe the place the outdated one was, we will put it within the reverse nook. Then, we will put up a few partitions the place the outdated bathe was and switch it right into a linen closet. I believe.

Our toilet is admittedly massive and we do not want that a lot wasted area. By shifting the bathe, we acquire an area that may make a fairly large linen closet. So it’s going to be good when it is carried out! It is simply plenty of work getting there.

This morning, I drove as much as West Bloomfield to go to my pal Jack, who I went to highschool with. I used to be already sore from engaged on the “bed room/toilet mission”, after which Jack and I went on a five-mile stroll/nature hike. West Bloomfield is fairly hilly, and I might definitely really feel my quads working laborious. So, I am certain I will be sore tomorrow, too, however not less than it is a good sore 😉

Anyway, West Bloomfield is an hour away, so I had plenty of time within the automobile and I selected to hearken to a brand new podcast. It is known as ‘The Plant Powered Folks’ and the episodes I listened to had been SO good. Bear in mind how considered one of my massive targets for this yr was to give attention to consuming extra fiber? Properly, the primary episode I selected was about fiber and the digestive system–particularly in regards to the intestine microbiome.

I might examine it however did not totally “get it” till listening to this episode with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, a gastroenterologist who’s a complete nerd (in a great way!) about fiber and poop and the way the microbiome is tremendous vital to our well being. It ended up being a two-part interview, so there are two one-hour episodes. I extremely advocate that everybody hearken to them! (Episodes 75 and 76–you will discover them right here.)

I additionally listened to an episode about sprouts (episode 78)–which sounds actually boring, but it surely was a subject I knew nothing about and thought it will be attention-grabbing. And it undoubtedly was–I had no concept that sprouts (from seeds, lentils, beans, and so forth) had been so good for us. Now I need to attempt sprouting some issues! The visitor that was interviewed, Doug Evans, wrote a guide known as ‘The Sprout Guide’, and he explains the best way to do it (no backyard required).

I will search for some extra attention-grabbing episodes to hearken to. I used to be becoming bored with true crime, so I added a few new podcasts to my cellphone. It was refreshing to hearken to one thing new and it acquired me sort of enthusiastic about fiber and sprouts–hahaha!
