I didn’t expect that.

Here I am at the end of my ‘Moon Cycle‘ (yes fellas that’s code for a period) and now the cravings are kicking in a little bit.  Nothing too overwhelming mind you, but I find myself fancying a dessert like a good quality ice cream, or a something from the German bakery because let’s face it…those folks know how to bake.

Then my mind wavers over Chocolate with Caramel and nuts for awhile, before moving onto strong Coffee laced with Chocolate curls, and a dollop of ten thousand percent cream, and maple syrup to finish it off.

After wards my mind flickers around Sour Chew Candies, Licorice Treats, and Cakes…the kind Amish women make because let’s face it…those folks know how to bake…and Strawberry Milkshakes made with frozen strawberries and real 10,000% cream.

Are you getting my gist?

Not large cravings mind you but enough to drive me nuts.  Instead I’ll try not to pace the floor and only eat when I’m actually hungry.  In some ways living out here in ‘the middle of no where’ is a gift.  I can’t just walk across the street to the store and overwhelm the shop keeper with a mountain of goodies.  Wasn’t this supposed to happen at the start of my moon cycle?  And to think I thought I got off Scott free.
