A lazy Sunday with homemade mashed potatoes!

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Gosh! Where did the Sunday go? In fact, where did the entire weekend go? It's Sunday night again, and tomorrow, it's going to be Monday again! Sigh!

I spent the morning in church with fellowship after service. I had a cup of tea and a tuna sandwich. I also had some custard kind of dessert which came wrapped in banana leaves. I then spent the afternoon watch the National Geographic channel, jellyfish and sharks to be exact. Have you ever seen someone catch a 16-foot great white shark! They're tagging them to conduct research.

I then spent the twilight walking, more like strolling, then watered the plants. I then made my own homemade mashed potatoes, 2 US russet potatoes, boiled for 20 minutes, mashed with 3 tsp olive oil margarine, lot's of freshly ground pepper, a wee bit of salt and a wee bit of chicken stock granules. It was mighty tasty but my Dad refused to try it, so I ended scarfing down the whole thing.........oppps! Yummy! It's a good thing I didn't add too much margarine! Seeing that I ate the whole thing..........

Hmmmm! What did I do on Saturday? Can't really remember but the weekends sure fly by fast! Before you know it, it'll be Friday again with the anticipation of another weekend. Time sure flies by fast, here we are in the middle of July now! In no time, it'll be Christmas again!

    Sounds like you made great potatoes! I love mashed potatoes. I used to eat them all the time, and now I'm getting better at not eating them so much. I would get the boxed kind, not make them from scratch, so there would be all these added chemicals. I'm sorry your weekend is over... *hugs* and have a good night!

    Potatoes of any kind are good! I have to skip them allot because I can't quit when I start to eat them! Sorry your week-end is over while I still have Sunday to go through. Lucinda

    Hard to believe I'm sitting here drinking my second cup of coffee. It's 9:31 am Sunday morning, and your Sunday is already over! Your stroll sounds lovely. Potatoes fixed anyway are our favorite. We can't do them to often because they spike the blood sugar. My sis is diabetic. Hope your Monday is going well!

I have my own mulberry saplings now!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

A kind neighbour gave them to me! They're pretty small now, just little green shoots on little twigs but they'll grow! Then I can have my own mulberries! I must remember to water them daily and fertilize them later so I'll get good crops of mulberries!

Oh, the only exercise I did today was walking to the neighbour's house twice, she wasn't in the first time. I was thinking of walking to Subway for dinner but my Dad came back from the mechanic's just then.

I asked him to give me a lift to Subway but he declined. Saying I already had a sub on Tuesday. After that, I didn't feel like walking all the way there (about 30 to 40 minutes solid walking to and another 30 to 40 minutes back). It was sooooo hot! Might get heatstroke!

    I planted a mulberry tree in my front yard about 15 months ago, along with a red grapefruit. It is very hot and dry where I live (southern Arizona). The mulberry is doing very well, it's about 7 feet tall now, but takes an amazing amount of water! The grapefruit is not doing so well, due to getting sunburned in the summer, and frostbitten in the winter. It's still struggling along, though!

    I love Mulberries and on one of our walks found 2 bushes that the birds hadn't ravished! Good luck with These heat wave is too dangerous to be out in unless you go early morning or after 7:00pm at night in my neck of the woods so good judgement call. Lucinda

    In our neighborhood mulberries come up easily because the birds scatter the seed.
Enjoy! emoticon

    Watch out when those bushes start producing,, Our next-door neighbor had one,, the birds eat the berries, so everybody's car, house, driveway,etc got bombed/stained.
They taste fantastic though!

Tried a new veggie today!

Friday, July 13, 2012

Preserved Olive Leaves! I think they're manufactured in China. They come in little jars and are meant to be eaten with bland rice porridge. It's a little salty but so delicious!

I love trying new foods!

I did it!!!!

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I actually lasted for 61 minutes doing Cassey Ho's Pilates today! This is a big first for me! I normally only do like 30 to 45 minutes! I will try to do an hour each time from now, now that I know that I can do it without feeling like dying so much.

For those who don't know Cassey, you can find her workouts here :

My arms still ache...

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

when I try to scratch the opposite shoulder. I've decided to take a break from exercise today because I just had my dialysis treatment. Also, I'm wondering when I'll ever NOT have an aching body because I exercised............

Yes, Dear, I also find
hard to be moderate -
either exercising
too little (USUALLY!)
or too much (occasionally)

Better to be consistent
