Hi..boy what a day..my side is so much better today :)
The bad news is I'm up 4 pounds :( must be all the salt from all the meals out..I'm not happy with this at all!! Grr..Not good at all!!! And I'm going to my spa weekend in Moose Jaw on Friday :( Oh well ..time to get back on track and get all that salty food out of my system..I hate salt..never add it to any cooking or baking, not even bread. I tried those boughten sweet potato fries and they were disgusting..sooo salty. Salt makes my lips totally break out..bright red and chapped!! Does any one else have that problem with salt??
I did my usual 30 minutes on the bike and then spent a lot of the day helping hubby..cow was calving early and he needed help getting her in..then we tried to help her calve but the calf was backwards and just the tail was coming..hubby needed to grab the back legs and pull them up to pull the calf but no room and the cow was straining..so we had to take her to the vet clinic. Of course the stock tailer was stuck in snow and we had to shovel and finally get the tractor to push snow..then hook up , then load cow..by this time it was around 6:30 pm.. I stayed home to do chores etc..Just talked to hubby on his way home..calve died but vet was able to give the cow some drugs and pull the calf so no C-section...thank goodness..we don't need that expense on top of a dead calf!!
Other things I did today was go to town for mail and water right after lunch. Made a fireplace log from used coffee grounds, paper pulp and saw dust..hope it works..I just invented it. I have seen coffee logs in stores and have no idea how they're made. I packed the pulp into a cardboard pop box and if it doesn't hold together when it's dry I'll just burn the whole thing.
Well that's enough about my day..ready to call it a night..hubby's home..I'll see if he wants supper??
Our trip to Weyburn was fun!! The farewell party was fun and the food was yummy!! I was careful and avoided the gravy on the potatoes and beef and also had fresh fruit salad instead of chocolate cake, whipped cream and cherry pie filling!! Lots of calories avoided. The best part was we sat with friends we haven't seen for a long time and had so much fun catching up!!
We also brought up the recycling so the porch is emptier..did a bit of shopping..got some more paint and painting supplies, a bit more groceries for while I'm away..frozen waffles, frozen fries and pizza and ice cream..should keep the guys going for a couple days...and of course a new magazine...
Today I have such a bad stitch in my side I thought it was my appendix..but I read on sparkpeople health articles and it's not on the right side or near my navel, just hurts so I have to walk bent over..hmmmm..didn't do anything strenuous to pull a muscle?? I'm sure it'll feel better by tomorrow...just enjoying some couch time tonight :)
Happy Valentine's Day to you all!! Thanks for stopping by for a chat and a cup of tea..I'm off to make some more strawberry tea yumyum :) Thanks for all the comments, goodies etc..I really appreciate all your support and encouragement!! Keep on Sparkin'
Hi..just a quick blog..and to post my flowers :) Hope you all have a great Valentine's day :) We're going to Weyburn to a farewell party for one of the pasture managers who is moving.
It's going to be a beef dinner with all the trimmings..so tomorrows gonna be busy.
Today is sooo windy..but it is mild and the snow is melting and some of the pasture hill tops are peeking through.
We had a good time at the hockey game..but our home team lost :( it was fun anyway, tho!!
Good to go out for the evening and visit with some friends.
Today I'm making a huge pot of soup for the week..it's turkey with barley and lots of veggies..
celery, onions, mushrooms, corn, carrots, peas and red peppers :) it smells yummy :)
I rode my bike this morning for my usual 30 minutes. I'm catching up on some housework and paper work today and not doing much else..gotta have a relaxing Sunday once in awhile.
Thanks for stopping by..Happy Valentine's Day and keep on Sparkin'
Hi..I'm blogging early since I'm hoping we're going to the local hockey game tonight..supper's gonna be a rink burger:) we do still miss the rinks..back when son was in hockey..that's a lot of rinks and a lot of fun!!
Dinner was the last of my weekly pot of soup..I think next week will be chicken veggie :) I've had my daily V8 and one square of dark chocolate :)
I did my 30 minutes on the bike...and some housework...February's gonna be busy..while I'm gone to spa next weekend son is coming home for ski dooing and hunting coyotes..then while the school break is on during the last week of February..while hubby is gone to his workshop, the 2 granddaughters are coming for a stay :)
I'm enjoying my off white roses I picked out for Valentine's day : ) Lots of cool comments on my son's girlfriend's facebook page over her Valentine's gift of 100 roses. Oldest daughter said she loves her Valentine's gift from her boyfriend..a new washing machine :) nothing says I love you like clean underwear..one of my favorite flylady quotes..haha.
Hope your weekend is going just great!! It's beautiful weather here..at last :) We just finished watching the afternoon hockey game on CBC and the Oiler's lost :) that means they're still last in the league..oh well someone has to cheer for the underdogs, right!!
Well thanks for stopping by for a chat..and a coffee actually, since this is coffee break time :)
Keep on Sparkin'
Hi all..today we're in a nice warm up :) I like it alot :)
I rode my bike and talked to my sister on the phone :) Also talked to my son this morning..he has Fridays off lately and he was going to bring his girlfriend 100 roses at work this morning, lucky girl..she must have liked them since she posted pics on facebook and it was fun to read her friend's comments...
I got back to painting and worked on the basement a bit..it looks really nice..the color I picked is a pale off white so it really brightens it up.
I had soup for lunch and pizza and beer for supper. After supper I've been going through my -e-mails and sending jokes on to friends and organizing and deleting them..
So glad you stopped by for a chat..gotta go make some tea..Hope you all have fun weekends planned..we might go to a hockey game in a neighboring town tomorrow night.
