Sorry I didn't blog yesterday but just didn't have anything to say.
I will make up for it today
We got groceries all done and I got some new spices that I have no idea how to use yet. I got marjoram,ground cumin,curry powder,HerbsDe Provence ( mixture of rosemary,marjoram,thyme,savory and lavender) and red pepper flakes just for Angel. I told Angel that no matter what I cook on Wednesday when she and Brianna come she has to put the red pepper flakes on it.Bill told me to tell her I was fixing g french toast or something real sweet. See he is mean.
She is always asking for it so I got some. I will have to play with other spices.let me know if you use any of them and how you use them. The Provence one is just an Italian spice similar to one I make myself. I may just dump it in my blend.
They had some nice beef roasts on sale so we got 2.I can cook just about anything on the stove or in a crock pot or in an oven.But have never conquered making an old fashion pot roast in the oven. I am going to try this week.How do you guys cook a pot roast. The seasonings you use is what I am interested in. I love Bob Evans pot roast sandwiches .
OK Enough about groceries.
The doc office called about my blood work.Cholestrol is up some but he doesn't want to do anything yet. We decreased the Lipitor to every other day due to leg muscle pain. Potassium is low which was no surprise. So instead of 17 pills a day I now get to go to 18 plus extra when I have to take extra diuretic.
They checked my thyroid but didn't do a complete test so he want me to get that done Monday. I take meds for thyroid but they do effect heart so he takes care of dosage. Gyno doc first put me on it but she turned the dosage over to him because of heart. Not only can thyroid affect all aspects of your body so can the dosage.
Next------ With Bill's help we got some gardening done. Will take some pics tomorrow. But we planted some onions,yellow squash,tomato,okra. And I repotted the 2 new butterfly plants.Bill is going to put 2 tomatoes in one of those hanging thingy's and 3 in the earth box. He will do those tomorrow. Since I do better with plants and my butterfly plants have done well I may get some more from a catalog. I have a few picked out that are suppose to attract butterflies and humming birds.
The one butterfly plant I showed you has changed in the last few days.The name of it is Golden Shrimp Plant ( Camaron Amarillo) and the one that looks like a sunflower is called Euryops. Here is a couple of new pics of the Golden Shrimp Plant. I really like it.
The Tulip bulbs I planted are coming along nicely.
The water globe may need to be filled more often than I want to fool with.They may end up just being a decoration for plant.
Today has been a beautiful day.Sunny and blue skies. I even sat out on deck for a few minutes this morning.Complete opposite of the last two days.
I will be meeting two spark friends next week. One on Thursday and one on Friday.I am looking forward to it.
Ok I think this is enough. I have gotten off track but am working to get turned around.A few days of not feeling well screws me up in many ways. I have managed to keep 50# off but getting back to losing isn't going great. I am up and down the same pounds. Fighting the fluid all the time doesn't help. But I never give up .Just have some set backs.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
