Got up late today and when I checked my email I had 70+ emails and another 30 during the day.And they are still coming in. I was selected as Motivator of the day on spark and received so many kind comments. I feel guilty as I have not been doing so great lately. I was truly touched and so inspired to do better.Thank you Thank you Thank you.
I finally got my nails done today. Bill came by around 3 and put my walker in car and then met me at nail place after he got off work to put it back in car. But that meant we went out for supper on the way home.We have been eating out way too much. That has to stop.
It rained all morning but sun was back out by afternoon.It is getting so hot.
Here are some more pictures. Here are my desert roses in full bloom.Just a few weeks back all the limbs were bare and I wasn't sure they would make it.The pictures don't do them justice.
I can't remember if I showed these or not.I did show them with just a couple blooms but the blooms are increasing
Ok enough pics for now.
Hope you all had a great day. Thanks again for all your comments. I met a lot of very nice people today. All spark people are the greatest.
I filled both the steamers and supper is cooking as I sit here
On the left bottom is all cauliflower.On top is Broccoli and carrots.
On the right bottom is green beans and a potato for Bill
On top is cabbage and yellow squash. I will use left overs to add to my soup each day or just as a snack. I may even make me a fresh salad to go with mine. So supper can't get any healthier than this.
Oh I gained 5# this week.Hopefully part of that is water. But I will lose whatever it is as soon as I can.
My trip to Wal Mart yesterday was a teaser. I did find the panty's and got 3 bras. Going to do some work on the side of bras so over hang doesn't over hang. But the biggie I got was a new steamer. This one is a double decker like I have but not quite as big. But this lets you see water level and will shut itself down if water level gets too low. The top basket's bottom will come out and you can steam some that is high if you need to. Plus you can even set it up to delay start. I wouldn't use it when not home. But could get it ready and set timer to start say an hour later in case I was busy around house. I like the controls so much better. Plus I have wanted a smaller one for just steaming something small and I can use this one for that. I can see myself with both going at same time. This even has a warm setting.
The one on left is my old one.
For some reason Bill and I are attracting bugs. We stopped today for Bill to look in this building window and he left the door open and this flew in and made itself at home on his head rest.
I have been lucky enough to get a lot of pictures the last few days.Here is a flower that was on side of road next to a small pond.
Here is the small pond
Ok that's enough pic for today.
I have been doing terrible with my eating exercise and everything. But today is another start over for me. Last night was my last eat what I want for a few days anyway. I had all fried foods last night.I know.Not good.Well actually it was real good. I could have indulged a little less tho. I had fresh,shrimp,fresh oysters and fresh green tomatoes from Bill's plant. With sliced ripe tomatoes.
But I have been good today and we even went out for lunch.
Had cup of soup and gyro with no sauce for lunch.Breakfast was fruit. Just had a snack of tomato and cucumbers. Supper will be steamed green beans,cauliflower,Broccolli,squash and maybe a ground turkey patty.
The main purpose of our trip out today was to get my nails done but didn't happen.It was too crowded and for first time ever the acetone smell was awful. I waited a couple of minutes and I couldn't take smell.I will go back tomorrow when Bill gets off work. I took the old nails off so fingers are a little tender but I will survive until tomorrow. I can't get little finger done as nail was so thin it tore at the end.
Then after that we stopped to gas up my car.There was something wrong with nozzle and Bill spilled a lot of gas on ground.More strong smell as I stayed in car when he went inside to tell them.They knew it was bad. He pushed our car away a little bit before I started it.Most of it had already evaporated but I didn't want to take a chance. So my lungs got some nasty stuff twice today. We had a few comedies of error today for sure. So I am going to take some more meds and some advil and take a nap. It rained here for about 2 minutes and quit..
Ok I am looking for a much better week. My weight is up but part is fluid and not near as high as it was the other day.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend
Oh Bill played upwards with me last night and even won. It was one of toughest games we have played.The board was hard. He rarely beats me so he needs to win once in awhile.
It has been a busy and interesting day. I took my camera along and didn't think I would find anything but have enough for at least three days. Some are just odd ball things and a couple houses.But we also got a wild momma turkey and a butterfly that landed on our hand when we came home.Plus some of my plants and some stuff on side of road.I think I will start with the turkey.I took a couple from road but then Bill got out of car and jumped the fence.He went way out in field following her. I was hoping a bull or something wouldn't show up. The things he does for me. First is the turkey and then a house Bill saw back in the woods.
Ok In this first picture look all the way back as far as you can see and that small smudge is Bill
And this house was somewhere behind the trees.Bill said he only got part of it in pic.
And just one of me.I look awful but it is what it is.
Yes I got something good at WalMart but will tell you about it tomorrow. Hope you are enjoying your weekend
I had a super busy day and we never even went to grocery store. I got up at 8 am which is very very very early for me.
I still had a bunch of veggies in fridge that needed cleaned and bagged. So I got all that done.I also had a big bag of green beans and I steamed them. Then I roasted my stuff for the butternut squash. Whew I got a lot done.Even got the grocery list made.
My eating hasn't been bad but hasn't been real great either. The fluid is trying to come back so I need to take extra diuretic again today I don't like taking the extra but it has to be done. I would rather do it myself (with doc's permission) that have to go to hospital. As long as I take extra potassium I am fine.
Have not been exercising either so have to get back to that.Can't do it when fluid is bad.
Here are other pictures from yesterday
These are some onions I grew and used in my soup
