Mushrooms.

Mushrooms.

I discovered PCC.   Just stop and go ….. “Uh oh, Keshia discovered another land of loverly home fresh veggies and fruits with LOTS of lovely items in bulk shelves.” Anyway, they had the most gorgeous mushrooms. SO I decided to make mushroom and barley soup 🙂 I’m using Trader Joe’s mirepoix, some barley (probably 1/2 cup), just al little over one pound of mushrooms, butter (because it is of the Gods), dill weed (which I found in bulk at…

Spiru-tein in Chocolate

Spiru-tein in Chocolate

Well, here I am trying another protein powder thing. This one actually has a palpable flavor and doesn’t taste like I’m chewing on raw beans and such. I have to have plant protein shakes given the whey gives me horrid breakouts and such from general protein shakes. This one mixes well, still some chunks but at least they are tasty chunks. Hahahahaha… It has 97 kcal with 14 grams protein. Adding it to almond milk outs it up to 177…

Disappointment …

Disappointment …

Recently, I have been exhausted. I’m quite frustrated with how tired I aways seem to be. I haven’t been able to do all the things I generally like to. My time is consumed by work, sleep, chores. I have to leave for work at 2 start at 3 get done around 1130ish and am home after midnight. I tend to have a pretty healthy sleep routine of coming home, having tea, and then sleeping.  But I am not able to…

Weirdest patient interaction

Weirdest patient interaction

When I think back on the last five months of nursing, my most awkward moment was when a patient asked me for a hug. Literally, she put the call light on, the NAC answered, came and told me the patient needed the nurse, I went into the patient’s room and asked what she needed…. her response, “A hug”.  I blankly stared…  not knowing what to do ( yes, the logical thing to do is hug her). I’m not really a…

Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Today at Trader Joe’s I broke down and just bought the HUGE container of soy protein powder. I have been looking for a while for something to help boost protein, but I just think all protein supplement things are NASTY and weird and gross and the texture is just HORRID!! BLEEGGGCCCKKK!!! I usually buy those single use packets of the non-dairy protein powder first before trying the WHOLE thing. That’s why it was hard to buy the whole thing… I…

Face Masks, body scrubs, and general life.

Face Masks, body scrubs, and general life.

Well today I knew I needed to do a body scrub and a face mask so I did! I did the usual Aztec face mask. I warned people before that it makes your face red after, so this time I took sequential pictures to show you!   So in the first picture, as you can easily tell, that is when I just lathered the Aztec Clay Mask on. The other two photos I’m honestly trying to move my face, but…

Prowlers!

Prowlers!

So last night at work we had a homeless, possibly schizophrenic man wander into our facility. The girls I was working with were, needless to say, a little scared after the whole thing and wouldn’t stop guarding the door.  The man was at the Plaza first, then wandered down to my rehab facility. I was the only nurse on duty for 22 patients last night with two NACs. I heard the door open and peered down to see who it…
