July 31, 2010 Saturday
Had little one over night and she at least slept late. She of course wanted to get in the pool but it was cold. You can walk down the steps, get out, walk down again and it will feel warm but it didn't. There was no way I was getting in and I wasn't going to let her get sick. We ate breakfast and then we worked on her school work and she did good. We went outside and checked out the garden and yard. I cleaned the kitchen from last night and I did 2 loads of laundry. Then we had lunch and she made it with my assistance. After lunch we checked the pool again and no go. The truck race came on and I watched that while doing house work. Time flew and it was dinner and I let her know after she could get in the pool because it was warm, outside was cooler but still 80 degrees. She helped make dinner and has learnt how to crack an egg, whisk scrambled eggs, make pancakes, and scrapple. I let her do it all and she has a lot of fun. Try to get mom and dad to let her do it.
She swam till 8 o'clock and I was wondering if mom was going to come or did she go to work. The Nationwide race was to be on at 8 but something else was on and it came on later. I cleaned the kitchen from dinner and was folding clothes and my daughter called and said she was coming out to swim with her husband and 2 others. Her and her husband came about 10:00 o'clock so it is another late night. Little one wanted to swim but parents said no, not a happy camper. She is out watching them. This is the last thing I have to get done before 12 back to the old time.
I am still tired, tomorrow is suppose to rain, I hope, so I can stay in, get things done inside
and no one will come to swim, does that sound bad. I need a rest, it would be okay if they would come and I didn't have to host. If they come I will do what I can, but I really need to rest.
I am going to take out some of the huckleberries and make some jam and see how it turns out. I have 4 bushes and if I can make pies or jam or something I will. I try anything once. My back and my exhaustion is keeping me from doing too many exercises but I will make up for it. Keep me in pray and I love you all.

July 28, 2010 Wednesday
Today I picked up little one and we had lunch, tuna sandwich on honey wheat and then went out to the pool and played for about 3 hours. I had to stop several times because my back was hurting a lot probably from all I did yesterday. I got out of the pool and let her play and sat down till i had to get her out. I went and watered the new plants I put out and there where 24 of them. She got out, we walked around the garden, yard to the grapes, pears and she had 2 bunches of grapes to eat. I have 4 different kinds of grapes and i just put in concord grapes last year and 1 of the bunches was the concord and they where good. We went back to the house and changed and her mother came. She fed the dogs and we sat and talked. I had made cole slaw Monday and I had little one try it with her eyes closed. She doesn't like carrots and they where in it. She liked it and i showed her mother how much I put in it and I put it in a smaller container. My daughter thought I had put it there for her so I gave it to her. I had some in a small dish and was eating it and little one picked it up and walked in the other room and ate it. Okay I was eating it and she does that a lot. Oh well only young once. After they left I was hungry so I made a honey wheat sandwich with lettuce , tomato, onion, cheese and the rest of the tuna which was very little, a taste. That was enough but I had a small dish of butter pecan ice cream and that was it for today.
I have come back down to 141 and I will probably loose more when I weigh in Monday. No lower than 138 because that will be too much. As i said I am not here for weigh lose but maintaining and changing to healthy eating and exercising. I do my best but some days are hard with the back. To be young again and know what I know now what a life I could have. So i can't go back, so i just go forward and make this life as fun as i can.
Well, I promised to get in bed early since I am exhausted and have to do it all over tomorrow. Looked at the grass and since I didn't cut it real short next week again after the rain.
Have a beautiful day and enjoy yourselves. Catch you tomorrow.
