Vessi Shoes

Image
I bought my second pair of Vessi shoes. My first pair I wore everyday since I got them. They also had great grip in the snow. They are so comfortable I stopped wearing my other shoes.  These shoes are vegan, waterproof, and they mold to your feet. You have to buy them online  at vessi’s.com. They are machine washable but I have not tried they are easy to wipe clean  My second pair is a limited edition I bought them because I walk everywhere and they have some reflection so I feel a little safer that cars will see me walking in the dark winter. I love the style.  These shoes really are waterproof. You can see an Instagram Reel of me walking in the rain here  Waterproof Shoes Instagram Reel . My pants got wet my shoes stayed dry.   

Vegetable Soup or Vegan Cheese Sauce?

  I find it amazing that I can throw some vegetables in the soup maker press a button and after 25 minutes it transforms into something super delicious.  This morning I defrosted some pizza sauce and then did not feel like making pizza. I thought I would try a vegan pizza soup.  I had a giant sweet potato so I cut some into fry shapes and added the not good looking pieces into the soup maker. Then I added some vegan better than bullion chicken flavour. Half an onion, water, cashews, nutritional yeast, pizza sauce, curry powder, Mexican seasoning and water. I usually add some fat to the soup maker I forgot this time it turned out great.  While the Soup maker was working I tossed the fries in cornstarch and sprayed with avocado oil. Then air fried them for 12 minutes. Adding a little oil part way through cooking.  The soup tastes amazing and was a perfect dip for my fries.

My experience having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization

It has been a month since I had Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Today is the first day since I have been able to walk to the mall. Prior to the procedure this was a normal everyday walk for me it takes around 20 minutes. I’m currently sitting outside the mall drinking Starbucks preparing for the walk home. It also started pouring rain I’m also hoping it stops by the time I’m finished writing this.  If you have not read my previous post it is here it explains the procedure. This post will mostly be about the day of the procedure and I will write another post about recovery. For context a month ago when I had the procedure our hospitals were still overwhelmed and tomorrow my area will be entering phase 2 of opening.  I have never had a procedure done at a hospital before. With Covid restrictions and many surgeries postponed I was not expecting it to be busy. I was wrong there were lots of people.  I first had to go into a room and sign all the consent forms. After that I went to a wa
