Aioli , foods, histamines?

Like garlic. Lately have been using more in soups to help feel better and seems to work. Tired this morning so looked for some and only1 clove left. Recall an old type of mayo, but No eggs, just beaten or blendered olive oil and crushed garlic. There are so many how to's on You Tube, are sure to find 1=+ that make sense.
No olive oil or butter in the house so wonder what else to try. Just cooked some butternut squash but it is low calorie and need more to gain more muscle weight. Also am reducing histamines again, eating onions seemed to help me  with reactions. Keeping notes on what eat and if reactions, also seems related to if getting upset about something, hot weather, overdoing physical activity . Last week , walking into the sun, to the bus stop, felt like pins in skin, so turned around and took time coming home and it went away.
Be Well

Wonder how many other people dont get hungary much and why this is . Found that some dont get thursty and can be related to Lpa amounts. Have made it a habit of making sure when I wake up, I drink water and eat. Really do forget. Sometimes just get tired or shaky or cant think as well.  Did research and found appetite can be increased if take more of certain nutrients, espec. B vitamins. Also found that taking the amount in most bottles leads to me loosing weight, so need to eat even more. Making a list of whats in the fridge, cubboard..., have ideas of meals and write it down on lists and put where get my meals. Helps alot.
Came up with a really quick desert the other evening. Tiny bit of water heat up in small pot with half pat of butter, then some raisins to soften and sweeten it up , then added some yogurt ( guessing ~ 1-2 to 1 cup,
Forget if anything else came to mind except the egg which beat in after took pot off the stove. Creamy and seemed too thin, so put back on heat and forgot it for 2 minutes and was pretty firm then. Get sidetracked easily or stay highly focused other times . Sampled and was quite good!
Little tiny birds hear in the yard. This morning was a soft grey with a small skinny beak so probably for insects eating. There is a black hooded one that swoops about catching bugs and black headed that seem to eat seeds off the ground. Am thinking is a Junco, but yesterday were larger ones, so maybe rufous sided tohee. Wish had pictures of them.

Good News and People

Went to the store to look for a backpack pattern, looked in 3 pattern company books (think they are really owned by 1 company), not enough info on the page to decide if really be comfy.
Categorizing what I put in purse, bus schedules, camera, snacks..... and put pockets for each one.
  Grocery store next, a new fruit smoothie snack in produce department. Was on sale for half off and tried it on way to bus stop. Was good, and organic and chunky. Feel guilty buying stuff that has more packaging to toss, these are in a bag with a cap. SO will try reusing it or turning into an ice pack after fill with water and freeze.
  Then to thrift store-, after listening to their radio, mentioned thats why I dont listen to radio much, almost all bad news. Wish it was balanced with good happenings or people trying a dream, mostly local and then state, federal...  Wish to hear more about average everyday nice happenings.  Mostly listen to old music tape cassettes.
  Then missed the bus , went back to store to get snack (pumpkin seeds), ended getting a lift from someone who is vegan, grain free and egg free, and wondered what they ate. Since I am grain free but eat meat also, just thought, veggies,squash,....(forgot if they eat soy). Actually is a lot to eat.
fabric for backpack, wool and poly from thrift for $1

Lace wing larvae

Any ideas for how to deal with bug bites? Have got 5 in last 3 days. WOnder where and what from.
Maybe when go out where neighbors cats visit our yard or walk in hills or....
Am trying to find natural anti itch or anti-histamines. Tried iodine on first, then then dried powdered nettles    ( fresh would cause urtica and pain, but dried is supposed to be an anti histamine). 
Saw one bite me the other day, dont know if same kind for other bites. Was a lace wing larvae.
Found websites with it listd as biting people even though its considered a helpful insect to rid of aphids...
Noticed now that dont sit under the pine tree anymore and that cats usually dont visit (did find some leavings though) almost no bites!!!!!

Clean Air to BREATH

Clean Air to BREATH

Went into my bedroom yesterday evening and it totally smelled of horrible cigarette smoke. Neighbors smoke and keep doing it outside so it blows into our house. Dont we have a right to breath clean air!!!!!!!!!
Especially in our own house!  The air in our town is normally quite nice. What can I do about it? Keep the doors/windows shut even when its nice out, day and night? Dont know how many times have woken up choking around 4am from cigarette smoke wafting from neighbors.

Grasshoppers or crickets, but where are the turquise glasses

My son was outside the other night when when he was cooking his dinner. He called out and asked for me to look at the grasskoppers. They moved like crickets though didnt have my glasses on thn. Since usually see crickets at night and grasshoppers in the day, told him pretty sure they're crickets. Still dont have my glasses as misplacd them yesterday evening when on the way home from grocery shopping . Not sure if on the bus or the bus stop. They are a bright shiny turquise frame which helped me find them. My son  suggested we backtrack to bus stop to chck if dropped on the way. He grabbed a flashlight and still no glasses. He suggested looking in the fridge as one time I put them in there (left in a bag of food).
Hopefully they'll show up soon.
