Blitz Attack and 20 cm

I was minding my own business Thursday when all of a sudden BANG!
A severe lactose attack!
I really have no idea what prompted this but having been lactose intolerant for the past 25 years I have come to find out lactose is used in a variety things that does not have to be included in the list of ingrediants. Did you know that lactose is used in frozen french fries to crisp them in the oven? Did you know that lactose is used (sometimes) in maple syrup to clear it? No I did not eat french fries or eat maple syrup. My one theory is the pineapple juice I drank Thursday at lunch. Perhaps lactose is used to help clear that? I don't know -- all I know is that I was up all night Thursday and am just starting to feel better today. I am still tired from being up all night Thursday
Iain is away until tonight. He is on the Board of Director's for Ontario Nature and today there is a board meeting. He left yesterday during the worst storm of this season.

 Of course 20 cm of snow dropped in my driveway. I was going to wait for Iain to come home but I am feeling better today so out I went and cleared it off. I have a sweet guardian angel neighbour who snow blowed the crispy icy end from the driveway!

So I have had a shower and finished up some laundry and I think I will cuddle up with a book and a cup of tea.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Wow - I did not know lactose would be a hidden product. Makes it tough for anyone who has an intolerance for it. Glad to hear you are finally feeling better.
