Autumn Sort of Arrives

Weird weather, still very warm. Wore long sleeves to the dog park for the first time in months today, the breeze was cool.

Feeding changes for Vida? Less fish, a dab of honey every couple of days, the last of this year's poor figs before breakfast this week, turkey, duck, honest kitchen, coconut oil. All these small adjustments.

Autumn is the season of the Lungs and Large Intestines - the Metal Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Honey moistens the lungs. Raw local honey of course (local as in within 100 miles). I have some good Alfalfa honey from Orange County. We're both eating more honey. Don't want the dry autumn wind to start any trouble.

Coconut oil - haven't given it since last Fall, seemed a need. not too much.

Oh yeah, giving a Eye remedy, chinese herb spheres designed for animals. A couple weeks in her eyes look more moist, which is good. Not treating an acute problem, just the slight development of cataract mist at an early age.
