Thanks everybody...

for your encouraging words yesterday. I am headed out today to see what I can find by way of light bulbs. After talking it over with my super-supportive husband, we're going to seriously consider the "over the counter" version available at Walgreens. Seriously...Walgreens. I read their online reviews, and they were really positive. The lamp costs almost 200 hundred dollars, which I think is crazy, but the price tag is about the only thing that is keeping me from trying it.

I very much like the idea of keeping treatment as natural as possible, so I walked the kids to school again this morning and I'm trying to reach for better food options. And while my cravings haven't been too trustworthy lately, I think my recent love affair with cranberry/orange relish has been a good thing. I've been eating it by the spoonful and I bought more oranges on Monday so I can make some more. Here's the recipe:

Put 1 package cranberries (4 cups) through a food chopper and 2 oranges. Add 2 cups sugar. Mix well. Chill in refrigerator several hours before serving. Makes 1 quart relish.


I made it with 1 cup of cranberries and one whole orange (that's peel and all...it tastes amazing) and only as much sugar as I needed to be able to eat it without puckering. It's good on toast, in hot cereal, or just by the spoonful.

You should be getting enough antioxidants with that recipe. Remind me to give you the recipe for fresh cranberry chutney that I discovered lately.

That just sounds DANG good! Please keep me updated about the light therapy, cause 200 dollars is cheaper than a stay on a psych ward, and who know, there might be someone behind you in line at Walgreens....

This is exactly the recipe my mom uses...EXCEPT..She also adds an apple, and occasionally some nuts...pecans or almonds are great. This is the first year WE..I mean...DON made it. Yep. It is just the Taste of Freshness. You just know its full of good stuff.

This sounds so scrumptious! Too bad I don't have a food processor or even a blender! I will see if I can make some at my Mom's though. Thanks. I have to go read the post below because I don't know what you are talking about.
