Sunday Break

Because there is no such thing as taking too many breaks!

*****

When I lived in San Francisco I loved spending time in the Mission District. From Latino grocery stores to burrito joints, from independent book stores to small arts organizations, this neighborhood had everything I was looking for – including a couple of BART stations when I didn’t feel like driving to my office across the bay.

SF Mission Murals

One sunny afternoon I walked around the Mission District to take photographs of all of the murals in the area. Some of these photos are shown above.

I had a really good past couple of days, after coming off some bad days towards the end of the week. I even spent a couple of hours doing some handy work around the house yesterday…the paint in my bedroom has finally been touched up!

I think I’ve finally given up on Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free products. (Although I still use their xantham gum for my gluten-free baking here at home.) I’ve use a few of their products…yesterday I used the chocolate-chip cookie mix. Thumbs down. I can do better making it from scratch.

If Food, Inc. is playing in your area, be sure not to miss it. (Warning: you may never eat the same way after seeing this film!) I was lucky enough to see the U.S. premiere screening at the True/False documentary film festival in Columbia, MO this past February.

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!

    I find colourful art very uplifting too. California always seemed a very creative place to me…Boston a more reserved “academic” place perhaps. When I’m in pain, I seek solace in music, painting and poetry.

    A while ago, I decided to abandon gluten. I did it for six months. Actually, blood tests showed I wasn’t intolerant after all. If you take the blood test, eat plenty of bread beforehand, because otherwise you won’t have any detectable transglutaminase antibodies. So, you could present as negative even if you are a coeliac.

    They’re putting me on methotrexate and testing me for Lupus next week. Petrified.
