Logistically, the convalescence presented challenges. I've been vegan+ for over 4 years now, and I've only "planned" by the seat of my pants -- buying whatever looks freshest and building menus around that. My husband is a wonderful caretaker, and a terrific grill chef, and I knew he would be great at whatever I teach him, but I NEED dark leafy greens every day, and I was worried about how that was going to happen.
It's so easy to be vegan when perusing produce and specialty shops in person -- inspiration abounds. It's amazing how much we take for granted. Planning from my cushy bed is an exercise in thinking differently, akin to camping, in a way, albeit cushier.
The tulip is one of many sent to me by my Dad. I'd have shown you the whole bouquet, but I've got my whole pharmacy up here on my dresser, complete with syringes and sharps containers, pills for pain, swelling and sleep, as well as homeopathic remedies. It's quite a clutter. The tulips brighten the whole mess for me, but you don't need to see all that!
