Rainy sunshine

July 10, 2010 Saturday

Today was a day to work inside and if outside between rain drops. It just was so nice to see rain and actually see a difference in the yard. It is as if the grass, flowers, bushes and garden are just sitting back and drinking as much as they can to store before the next run of high temperature's I will have to cut grass next week but that is okay as I would like to get it all even. For some reason and I am sure you all have it too there are spots that stay green and everything around them is brown so that is why I have to get it even.

Today I managed to get one of my jobs lined up to do tomorrow on the phone. I scan products and I have a months worth of receipts and item to scan. With the scanner broke and then the modems I was behind. Now the modems are fixed and the scanners I have it hooked up and several of receipts and products ready to do. I have a online business that just started and now I can't get it up online so I have to call the designers and find out what is wrong. Never a dull moment. I had so many emails 1000 they stopped taking them and I just deleted everything last night and woke up to 58 this morning. Didn't want to delete July's but did but I can go back and retrieve them.

I am typing watching the Sprint race and talking to my granddaughter as she is here till midnight. We just shared a bowl of grapes, trying to teach her healthy eating. Well, tonight I am closing early as little one wants to play a game. Have a good evening and beautiful Sunday. I will catch you tomorrow, smile and be happy.

    Hey girlfriend,

I know what you mean about running an online business. It is more work (especially if you are not completely automated), but it can also be rewarding and fun. What kind of business?

    We're having a heat wave up north in Canada's Eastern Provinces and a lot of rain(with violent thunderstorms) came down yesterday for our poor lawns and flower beds. Humidity went down a bit but still very high, I felt like in Houston, Texas! emoticon

Glad you had your scanners and modems fixed as they're essential in your cyber business! Hope you retrieve everything and get lots of work but not so much you can't enjoy your granddaughter! Mine will turn 4 on July 25th and she's a delight!

Take care and have a sunshiny Sunday! emoticon

July 9, 2010 Thursday

I have to confess, I have been a healthy eater almost my whole life. Born and raise in 40's to early 60's you ate healthy because Mom was home and cooked 3 healthy meals. We didn't have fast food and processed food to put in the microwave. That wasn't even thought of. We had a Tasty Freeze and a family with 8 children didn't go there and you didn't have money in your pocket unless you worked but that was when you where 16 or older. I basically raise my children the same way, I was married in 1970 and in the first week of marriage I was given a 5 and 11 year old girls, my husbands children. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the table. When I worked I cooked 3 meats, casseroles and other foods on the weekend for the coming week. Packed lunch had sandwich, fruit, and cookies and they bought the milk. School lunches where wholesome too. After children where raised and there was just the 2 of us I still cooked or my husband did and he could cook good. He retired early, had a good package from work one of the last ones before they changed. He would have dinner ready when I came home and I really enjoyed that. Now the reason i have told you this is, I have totally lost it this week. Wednesday, cheese danish and tea for breakfast, I ate lunch at the bowling alley and it was 2 chicken nuggets, 5 french fries, 2 mazzorela stick and a medium mountain dew. The only reason I did that was I bought it for little one while she bowled because we where not going to get home for lunch and when I picked her up she had junk in her hand so I had to get something half way decent in her. Dinner was egg salad on hamburger roll and amish potato salad. Homemade cherry sauce from my cherry bushes, on pound cake and whipped cream. 2 glasses of mountain dew. Thursday half of a apple turnover and tea for breakfast and my sister brought me a KFC chicken sandwich, it was called something I don't remember potato wedges and a large pepsi. I ate half a scrapple egg wheat bread sandwich, potato salad and cole slaw for dinner. You can imagine what my nutrition looked like those days. Today I went back to my healthy eating and will let people know I don't eat fast food, sugar, sodas or high salt content items. I gained 3 pound and that is not good. So weekend is, get it together. I have apples, bananas, grapes green and purple, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, plums, and before I go to bed I am going to make a fruit salad. I also have corn on the cob that I am going to cut off the corn, bag and put in the freezer. My friend gave me about 30 ears and 1 person can't eat all that so I gave half to my daughter. Little one and I had an ear for lunch with tomato juice and a salad. Corn chex, banana tea and orange juice for breakfast. Dinner grape juice, egg salad on honey wheat bread, and amish potato salad. Very small servings I did eat a small piece of pound cake with the cherry sauce and a table spoon of vanilla ice cream. The end of ice cream , sauce and pound cake. I don't throw good food alway and I will eat it till it is gone but in very small portions.
Now don't get me wrong my husbands' friend every so often buys me a Subway turkey sub on wheat roll. I get a pizza maybe twice a year, I make my own and I will get Chinese a couple times a year. I buy the sweet and sour and lobster sauce, just a pint of the sauces. I will get Wanton soup and a shrimp egg roll. When I get it I will split the sauces in small containers and I get the special rice it has shrimp, lobster, chicken and pork in it and I split it in container, soup too. Then when I want Chinese I make the meat and have all the other ingredients. A little special meal.
I love to eat but I want good food so I just don't do fast food. Well, I am back to the good side of eating and hope I take off the extra pounds. Anyone who wished me a happy birthday I really appreciated your kindness. God bless everyone and I will catch you tomorrow. I am early tonight, can you believe it. Smile and be happy.

    It's okay! I ate 2 bowls of ice cream the other night. Felt a little depressed I guess. Next Friday is he 5th anniversary when Mom passed away. Man, I miss her.

Take care of yourself and even if you have to set some Mini Goals keep going! emoticon

July 8 2010 Thursday

Today was my day and I really enjoyed it I did some housework and yard work and my sister came and brought lunch. We sat and ate and enjoy it. We walked around the yard and I showed her all the garden and everything. She bought me all kinds of fruit and some really nice roll. I love fruit and have it every day. She had to go because she had a long ride but I really love seeing my sisters and brothers. My youngest brother was to come but he had an emergency with a job and had to fly to Brazil the American Embassy. He designs the sprinkler systems in new place and new renovations. He is doing most of the American Embassy's. Travels all over the world and makes big money because he is specialized in his field and there are very few people who do what he does. I missed not seeing him but he said he is going to move bach to the family home soon. He is in Atlanta Georgia mainly.

I worked outside a little more after my sister left and then came in and ate dinner. My friend left fresh corn in my garage refrigerator and it was good, but he always gives me too much so I am going to give some to my daughter tomorrow.

Well, it was a lovely day and I have to close this letter. Catch you tomorrow. Smile

    It was so nice that you enjoyed your time with your sister. I see mine every day (we work at the family business) and will see my brother for the first time tomorrow since Thanksgiving. He is flying in from Arizona - going from high temps with almost no humidity to high temps with lots of humidity! Enjoy the fruits of your garden!

July 7, 2010 Wednesday

I was up at 7:30 AM to get ready to bowl. Went and bowled no tap and not too bad we took 2 games, we usually only take 1 so we are improving. After I went and saw my sister in law and I am so upset with the Dr. and nursing home i could scream. I am not going to scream but i am going to start pushing buttons and when i do they'll know who is talking. She was sick with pre- cancer mass in her back. Radiation and chemo and she was clear. The y have her in bed and refuse to give her the therapy she wants to get out of bed and around to the point she can't stand and is so weak you can't touch her arms or legs without hurting her. She has been in there for months and if they would work on her legs and back she could get up. No offense to a hard working nurse or aid but if you push treatment out to 6 months or more the whole thought I have is MONEY in their pocket. I am going to talk to my brother in law and they live next to me, I will come over before he goes to work and stay with her till he comes home. I know a lot about physical therapy because I have been through it. I did my own therapy for my shoulder when I had surgery and the Dr. was amazed at my progress and wanted to know the therapist. I was 3 months a head of healing and movement. When I told him it was me he couldn't believe it. I have had therapy on my legs, back, shoulders and arms. They could show me and I could do it. She is not on oxygen, IV's or medicine that she could take herself. She has go to get out of there or she is going to die, she is so upset and feels everyone is letting her down and doesn't when her to live. I will not let that happen and i don't cuss but you can best believe I have come really close.

After I saw her I picked up little one and we went to Big Lots, picked up a friend, bowled with little one to teach her, bought lunch, went to the bank, Dollar General, I'm going to buy stock I am in there so much, grocery store, took friend home and finally got home at 5 this evening. Her mother was here and she could get in the house so we got the perishables and little ones things, I bought her snacks for school, changed clothes, turn pool pump on, sprinkler in garden and finally sat down for 5 minutes. Had to get the kitchen cleaned and my daughter wanted to swim. She was trying to get her husband to see if he wanted to come after work. Well the rest of the crowd wanted to come so she want to Walmart to get food and i put of 18 eggs for the salad. I put them in the food processor to chop and they turned out good. We made the food up and set it out and she was going to eat and then get in the pool. Hubby had to stay at work and do some last minute jobs. She never got in the pool which was a shame. I made a cherry sauce from my cherry bushes and warmed it , put it over pound cake and whipped cream. We split the food and I usually do dessert which I like. It turned out really good, not too sweet and a little tart. So next year I know what to do with the cherries. They left about 10:30 and i finally sat down to do the Spark points and found I hadn't done many yesterday. So if you saw my first later that is why I wanted to get my points. I have to do a lot of things over but one club is trying to get the points and I just put it off till I could finish it and they would have there points. So today was good bad and indifferent would you say. Sorry to lay this on you all but I have no one really to talk to. Smile and be happy and catch you tomorrow.

    sounds like it is beyond time to jump down a few throats at that nursing home. isn't there an oath there of do no harm!! refusing possible treatment to help her should be the priority for any doctor, nurse or anyone short of the janitor. i certainly hope that everything works out for sister in law and your family with the situation. sorry if i seem upset here, but i have seen to many people recieve poor treatment and nothing was done to help them.
