I have been trying to get on spark for hours. Donít know what the trouble was.
Yesterday was a very yucky day.Just did not feel well and was very tired from not sleeping. I donít have these kind of days too often but they do stink when they happen.
Today has been a very good day so far.As good as it gets for me. I slept good which is rare but happening much more often now because of c-pap.
Bill had gotten all my spices out of cabinet for me so I made a new batch of my seasoning jar that I use everyday. He even found me some savory the other day so I was able to add that. So now I have enough to last me maybe a month.
Then I cleared off the table and little cabinet top next to my chair that has accumulated too much stuff since I havenít been going to computer room .
much.Next was a big bag of stuff from bedroom that was on bottom shelf of cabinet that sits next to my bed.I needed the shelf for the heart monitor.It was mostly some cdís and several old address books. So I cleaned that bag out.
Next was to get my green beans ready to cook and they are in steamer and we will have them for supper.
I still have two little piles of stuff on some small tables but that will be quick. I was going to try to get to the big round table but may save that til tomorrow.
I have another big table next to computer that has slowly been piled up. Once I get that done I will take this card table out of living room. I need to make myself go back into the back room.I canít avoid it forever.Besides I miss not being able to look outside at my butterfly garden.
I started the day with great hopes of controlling my appetite and did well until about now. I want to get something else so bad. I hate that this is so hard and that I have gotten so far off track. I know I have the ability to do this but seem to fall short every day. It is just one more thing for me to struggle with. I hate that I have gained back some of the weight I lost. I hate it so much.
Well I also have clothes in washing machine so I better go put them in dryer.On my good days I tried to do as much as I can to take some of the load off Bill.He does so much for me.
And then I am going to go take a nap. Hopefully I can get on spark later
I tried to do this early this afternoon but could not get on spark.So this is part 2
I did take a nap and cut up half a apple/pear to nibble on so I wouldn't eat non stop.
Supper was our veggie turkey burger meal we have once a week. I steamed fresh green beans,cabbage and my brocolli.I found i like the brocolli better steamed. I was having a problem with both my steamers collecting water in the part that is between water and baskets.Then steaming part was going dry.So I had Bill drill some small holes in that part so it goes back into the base and no more going dry in there. Another of my bright ideas.Bill said I do come up with a good one once in awhile.
I also baked a big pan of cauliflower,Another pan will carrots,yellow squash and a few potatoes.Then i made Bill's turkey burger with onion,carrots,with a dash of my spice and some greek spice. Mine also had carrots,onions and the spices,plus fresh mushrooms.Instead of salt I put some curry powder in mine.These I grilled on my stove top grill. I had a huge supper which I like at supper time for only 500 calories.
I am in great shape with calories as of now. I even turned down some peppermint candy ice cream which tastes awesome.I have more than enough for a good snack later and still be in great shape. If I blow it tonight I will be upset.
I am very aggravated at the TV.There are too many shows to watch and tape. I can tape 2 and watch one.I had 4 things on at same time.Luckily one repeats at 11 so that helped.But I looked and it is a mess all week.Too many good ones coming on.Why couldn't they spread them out so we don't have months of nothing to watch and then too much. you can tell I do enjoy watching TV.
ok Here are some pics of my orchids and desert roses.
First is a piece I took off the big orchid,then a small orchid,then yellow orchid,Then 3 white desert roses
OK I think I have made up for not blogging yesterday. Am watching Dancing with the stars.So far Palin is the worse. But still more to come. Oh my goodness.Florence Henderson just flashed her boobs making fun of the Situation guy.I almost fell out of my chair,it was so funny.
Ok This has turned into a very long blog.Hope you are all doing ok.
