Wonderful Busy day

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

I do not know what I just uploaded.
I took a water aerobics class, went with hubby to purchase composter, put it together, make 9 jars of jam from peaches from my trees.. made chicken parmesan with zucchini from my garden and rigatoni, made a cover for my backyard swing
I am going to a friends house tomorrow and plant in her mini planter a tomato, a basil and a slyvia plant. I just feel like I have much more energy now that I am doing the water aerobics.
will be doing it again tomorrow...

    I love water aerobics, but there is no pool nearby to do it any more. emoticon
Did you take a hot air balloon ride??? I've always wanted to do that.

I have days when I wake up really early ( 4 am ) and cannot get back to sleep so I go on the computer and have my cup a tea and then weed the yard and go on with my day but then I am so fried by after noon when I get a chance i just sleep and it goes on for ever..
So I need to start keeping the nap short by setting a timer and doing the right things to keep my bedtime regular...But some days I just wake up too early... I won't take pills .... Too many side effects... It turns out my neighbor sometimes warms up his car for " half an hour " at 4 am before he goes to work... why would anyone do that just ouside my bedroom window.
why solved. but what is the solution?

    I'm good with going to bed earlier. I have also slept with ear plugs.

Confessions of a cannoli eater

Friday, June 14, 2013

Bill and I went out for a salad for lunch at an Italian BAKERY in Fair Oaks emoticon
after our low cal salads with dressing on the side,,
We each had a 200 calorie cannoli each....
Don' t I think I waisted my water aerobics class?
Let's face it everyone has a day that is just a wash. emoticon

    Don't even Tell me where you got the cannoli!! I used to work a few blocks away from Little Italy in NYC - (after walking thru China Town! more great food!) - and I think cannolis are a little piece of heaven!
Hey, and you DID the water aerobics - some days are just full of delights!! emoticon

    Glad that you went to Fair Oaks for a Cannoli. Why else would you go to an Italian Bakery (for lunch) HAHAHAHAHA
No your water aerobics was not wasted - exercise for the body and dessert for the soul. It helps to keep balance in all that you do.

AND thank you for the goodie. I am not ready for a bikini but the thought is much appreciated. emoticon

    You did not waste your class..you were building up strength. Just as your cannoli built up strength in enjoyment of life and living it more abundantly..it was well within moderation... (and God forgive me, I wonder sometimes which is better for the soul at times, confession or cannoli LOL) Ever tried it in puff pastry instead...made some once. :) You will survive this cannoli..and possibly live to indulge again...YES!

Let me live vicariously here for a moment...the real thick and creamy filling or the runny but oozing with sweetness? One end dipped in chocolate and nuts?

    Well I reallty think they are good but I am a eclair fan but I won't eat one because I cannot only eat one... One cannoli and I have been satisfied for a few weeks.

The house my dad grew up in

Thursday, June 13, 2013

This is the mantle of the house my dad grew up in in a little town called Rovito, Cosensa, Italy.
if you look carefully it has the year it was built.
I can hardly believe it has been there for so long.
He was born here but went back at five to visit family and ended up staying until he graduated high school at 16. Then Musolini wanted to draft him into the Italian Army so he took his birth certificate and came back to America. He got a couple years of labratory college and learned to speak Engiish. He ended up serving in the American Army from 1944 to 1946.
He was a medic. He said he was scared because he did not carry a gun but he was grateful he did not have to carry a gun durring the time he served in Italy.

Oh and it really does say 1591!
