Healthy Habits to have for a long healthy life, Ketogenic diet, low carb high fat diet, Photography by Cathy

Another facet of who I am. It’s not just about eating fat.

I know this post looks like it has nothing to do with a Ketogenic diet at a quick glance but in the end when you are healthy with all kinds of extra energy you can pretty much do what ever you want.  You can do those things you are passionate about.  I know that when I’m feeing good virtually nothing stops me and I do those things I love to do that make me happy.   My photography not only makes me happy but I know I make others smile.   So many people aren’t able to get out like me and so they have a way to see the world through my eyes.                                                              Generally I don’t know where I’m going to end up or what I’m going to be doing unless I’m forced to make a plan.  My friends will tell you I don’t like to plan if I don’t have to.  Today, especially after I broke my favorite lens last week, I definitely didn’t think I’d be out taking pictures.    With that said, today was a prime example of being able to find that positive point that comes out of a bad thing.  Since I don’t like to leave home without my camera I pulled out a lens  I don’t normally use to put on my camera just to have it with me.   Now I know I should be using this lens more often.  It’s just a small 50 mm 1.4 lens but truly it is an awesome lens.  As you continue on reading you’ll be able to see my photos from today.                                                              The photos were taken at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Winfield Illinois.  This is where the Batavia Orchid Society had their annual event.  I had learned about it while I was at my Garden Club meeting earlier in the month.  After tossing the idea back and forth a bit I made the decision to go and  I’m glad I went.  I had no idea what to expect.  I not only had an opportunity to take pictures but I did learn a lot.  The one big point that sticks out in my head and I will share it with you is that you are not supposed to turn Orchid plants as you might do to your other house plants.  Rotating them totally messes up the natural process that is so important to keep in order to keep the plants flowering over and over again.  After you’ve had a plant flower for the second time it’s easy to get hooked and you’ll even think about hinting to someone who gives you flowers occasionally to give you an orchid instead of a bouquet of flowers that die.  Orchids could actually flower for months at a time.  They are absolutely beautiful.      ENJOY!   I like comments!!!

 

I hope you enjoyed the Orchids.

Simplify

Simplify, A concept I originally started writing my Blog to stress to people.  Those who are already living by the  way of the keto diet and those who are thinking about it.  It truly is as simple as a mathematical Equation but often times people over complicate things to a point         where they can’t keep it up and then just give up.  It’s like sabotaging a good relationship.      For example, there are basic rules you need to adhere to which keep your engine in your car      running and your body is no different.  As long as you follow the basic guidelines of the keto        diet your body will run like a fine tuned machine.                                                                                                                                 In turn, you will reap the benefits for many years to come.

A Permit, I can’t wait!

Do you remember when you were 14, excited because you knew when you turned 15 you were probably going to get your driver’s license permit.  Oh what a day that will be.  The beginning to the process of getting your real license.  Freedom!  The day you turn 16! Every teenagers dream.  Getting on the road .  Oh those were the days.                          Little did you know that was just a beginning of a string of permits you would be required to get.  Maybe the next, one more exciting one, would be your wedding license/ permit depending on where it was to be issued they call it different names.  Anyways,  Other then those two happy times, it would end up being some sort of  permit hell as far as I’m concerned.  A money-making process for the city.  Checks being written for this that and everything in between.  Those inspectors, well, you would just hope they were in a good mood the day they came to see you.  No wonder so many elect to forgo the permit process and do what ever they can under the radar, unless of course there is absolutely no way of getting away with it.  Anyways,  Happy permit to you.
