A Good but Busy Day

Friday, April 30, 2010

This was suppose to be grocery day.But didn't make it.We went for lunch and then to Home Depot so I could pick up 2 plants. emoticon Ok How many of you are laughing. Those that know me well know there is no way I went there and only got the two plants I went for. I ended up with 6 and one was big enough to put into 2 pots so it was actually 7 plants.2 were kewl small cacti. I will have pictures tomorrow. I only got part of them in new pots as I ran out of potting soil.
I finally got the plants out front repotted. Well I have 2 more but they will be easy ones. So tomorrow I will finish up all the repotting.
We did make it to rent some movies for the weekend. We are watching "The Invention of Lying" Kinda dumb movie so far.
We will have to go to grocery store tomorrow.
I have done good with eating so far. Working with plants was a workout for me.Then I went in pool to cool off and did 7 laps.
It felt good to feel like I actually got something accomplished for once.
Tomorrow is my weigh in.I am hoping for some kind of loss. Even a small one.
Ok I hope everyone has a great weekend. I will have pictures of my new plants tomorrow.

    I wouldn't have come home with only 2 plants either! When I go to the nursery I have to hold back on the selection. I love plants! Great job on getting the 7 laps in and can't wait to see the pictures!Good luck on your weigh-in and have a great weekend!! emoticon

  Maybe you ought to hold off on thinking about planting any grass, as you won't have any room at this rate. Your plants do look so nice and Bill did a really nice job with all those stones. It looks great except for the snake!
Good job on your night eating. Do you ever get to the point where you could eat the cupboards bare? That is when I check in to get motivation, thanks.

    What an awesome day, Eleni and you even got in a swim. Woohoo - good for you.

Take care and have a Super Saturday. We are off to St. Louis this morning - Aunt Bert has a morning flight home to Florida. We are sure going to miss her.

Huggers, Sunny

Can't wait to see the new plants.

    Hi, What kind of snake visited you? I probably would never go in the yard again. I am so scared of snakes!
I bought flowers today, too. Will need to get them in the yard or pots tomorrow.
Therapy went well today. I always feel so good for a couple of days...
Hope the scales are kind! emoticon

    I'm surprised all you bought was plants. emoticon

We went grocery shopping tonight and I'm glad to have it out of the way. I was getting irritated. I have to stop at Sam's Club tomorrow for a few things.

I've never heard of "The Invention of Lying". Is it a newer movie? I'm hoping to watch "The Blindside" this weekend. I want to watch a horror movie, in the dark. It's storming here and it would add to ambiance.

I hope the scale is good to you tomorrow!

Not a lot going on.I did do my best last night with night eating. I just need to do it more often.
I also got to bed a little earlier and got up this morning earlier. I also did some exercises.Not a lot but some.
I was going to go in pool until I saw Mr Snake is back. I called my pest control people and they will be bring the snake stuff. It helped before. I got a couple of interesting pictures of Mr Snake. Bill and I are not sure that it is just one.

It disappeared so quick I don't know where it went.But I stayed in house til Bill got home.
Then I watered my orchids and other plants Bill isn't suppose to water. Here is a new orchid bloom.This is first time this one has bloomed. Still has a lot more to bloom.Looks like some nice color to it

Nothing much going on. Angel and Brianna came to clean last night and had supper with us which was nice. MMM I think I already told you this.
I have our reservations for Lakeland in June.Bill will be bowling and I will be stuck in hotel. I need to see what is in the area to see. Bill is taking the whole week off but there are few things that I can do. I have thought about Bok Tower. I went many years ago and it is a great place to take pictures. Have plenty of time to think about it. I may just take some books and read.
Well I am trying to watch Bones so I will say good night.Mentalist is also on tonight. Plus LA Ink which I am taping.As well as Greys and Private Practice.
I know.I do enjoy TV.

    That's a rat snake. Keeps the mouse population down. Harmless.

    Oh no!! Snakes might intrigue some, but they scare me!! I hope it's only one, and not more....those things move fast.

Great job with the eating, and some exercise is better than none.

Have a great day!!

  Now that is one big snake. We have them here too ,but, so far this year I haven't seen one that big.. They eat the field rats/mice and ofcourse birds eggs etc.The yellow crowned night heron eats snakes. Maybe that will take care of them. My mother bird has been at the nest ,but, the other one has been missing. At least I haven't seen it. Maybe he comes home at night.
Have a good weekend..Joanne

    If he wasn't poisonous and stayed away from the pool I wouldn't mind him. Just like I don't mind spiders if they aren't around me. Let it come inside, it is dead! Get that exterminator guy!

    YIKES! I have one like him in my front yard but he doesn't bother anyone.

I don't like the idea of him being there but for the most part he hides out in the Quince bush. Our's is a black snack and it looks like this one is too.

Take care and have a blessed day.

I got the chills just seeing the pictures of Mr. Snake. That thing is HUGE!!! No way in he$$ would I go outside if I saw that in my yard. I couldn't run fast enough inside the house.

I'm sure you'll find some trouble to get into while Bill is bowling!! emoticon

I have found a very big flaw in my dutch oven I got a few weeks back. It makes the food wayyyyy tooooo good. Needless to say supper was super good. Even little Haven ate a bunch.She is the little girl Angel and Brianna baby sit.

She learned how to go up and down the small step back here and she thought she was so smart. She is entertaining
It has been another quiet day.Until Haven came emoticon
And I have a clean bathroom and sheets on my bed thanks to my girls.
I had 2 butterflies in garden at same time today but couldn't get a pic of them together.

I did good with my eating yesterday until 10 pm and it was a disaster. Today should be ok. I sometimes think I am never going to conquer this night eating. But I refuse to give up. Many of you have beaten it and so will I. Some day.
Here are a couple more pics from today

Have a good night and a great day tomorrow

The butterflies are beautiful.

    I loved, loved your pics! Haven is a doll!! I can just see her going up and down those steps making it into a game. Babies are adorable.

Have a beautful day!

    Thanks for posting the pictures. I love the ones with the girls. Thank heaven for little girls...they sweeten the day!
You pictures are the first butterflies that I had seen this year. Our leaves on the trees are JUST budding out. I see that my peonies are just shooting out of the ground. A start on the flower garden. Your flower pictures keep me going...waiting for the spring flowers to come here.
Have a great evening emoticon

    Love the pictures of the flowers, they are beautiful, as are the butterflies. But they can't hold a candle to the beautiful girls! And that little one is a doll! Bet you enjoy her. Isn't it nice that you can enjoy them and then they go home. I love my kids, but as I get older, I appreciate being able to send the little ones home. I don't have any little kids/grandkids, but my friend does and I keep her once in a while.
Have a good night!

    We'll get it right...or never stop trying...we won't give up....we WILL get victory. God will give us the strength. I don't know why we have to deviled with this obsession of food...and I don't have enough money or years to figure it out with a counselor. I think it has something to do with my mother's alcoholism and the years of emotional abuse I suffered. Not to say I blame my's me and my choices. Mothers always get the blame and I hate that! Rest have learned how to let it go and not waste time with shame.

    I don't have a Dutch oven and don't think I want one now! I'm big enough as it is. I have stopped cooking in the crockpot for now because I'm constantly hungry when the food is cooking.

Haven is too cute. I can't believe how long Brianna's hair is. It's usually up.

I love all the pictures today.

Don't worry, you'll conquer that night eating.

    Dutch ovens are fabulous! Mine is almost a hundred years old and it has made more delicious meals than can be imagined. I started roasting whole chickens in it lately.

Beautiful wonderful girls! It looks like you had a lovely day with some helpful visitors!

    I have a bird feeder outside my window at work. I have one cardinal that I know when he is here as the windows run up the whole side of the building and I here him throwing himself against the building. I don't know if hi is trying to get to a branch that is reflected or if he is fighting himself. emoticon

Do Nothing Day

Monday, April 26, 2010

Had another do nothing day.Went to bed late and got up real late. And then even took a nap. Didn't even have to cook supper as Bill is working late. Did clean up what messes I made and did one load of clothes. Other than that I just watched TV and played on computer.
The butterfly garden is so awesome. If I had some grass in back yard it would really look great. Have to give Bill a break before I hit him with another project. I want to do something around magnolia tree but can't talk him into it yet. But I will. emoticon
I am in great shape with calories. I am staying in my range but still not happy with night eating. I know I can do better.
Really don't have anything today. Waiting for Dancing with the Stars to come on.I will tape Little People.
Hope you are all having a good day.
Oh We did have a bad storm last night.Did a lot of damage in near by towns. But beautiful all day.

    Sounds like my kind of day! We all need those once in a while. Glad that you didn't have to cook tonight, however, that is when I get into trouble sometimes. I will just grab something if I don't have to cook for someone else.
Your walk and flowers are beautiful. The grass can come later...
I wondered about your weather last night...wasn't it terrible in MS ? Those poor people were hit so hard. Have a nephew and niece who live in MS but they are south of Jackson.
Have a good night and a good day tomorrow! emoticon

I keep forgetting about Little People Big World. I know I'll catch them all on a marathon some weekend. Instead of watching Dancing with the Stars I turned on Little People. Thanks for the reminder. emoticon
