Thanksgiving Day

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Today has been a good day.Spent the day with my favorite person my sweetie Bill.We went to Cody's for a nice turkey lunch.I had the turkey and Bill got the ham. The place was packed so I was glad I had reservations.
Then we went to K-Mart to look for a shower curtain to replace the ugly one we got the other day.It wasn't just ugly. It was uglier than uglyLOL. This one is much better.I wish I could have found a Christmas one. I did get a snowman rug and cover for toilet seat.
Bill got all Christmas stuff out and ready for Brianna tomorrow.Also cleared off all the tables. Since Brianna has been sick I told her she could bring her boyfriend to help.But no kissy face of any kind.He is scared of me anyway.LOL This is usually our time together each year but I am making an exception this time.
Well not much going on.I did stay in calories range last night but I am over today.I am glad we went out so there are not a lot of leftovers here.
Hope you all had a great day and the rest of the weekend is also great.
Oh Roxy did great in class. She does everything well most of the time.LOL

PS anyone that wants to exchange Christmas cards please send me your address by spark mail.Do not post it here.

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
Sorry I haven't written in the last few days, feeling kind of down about some news I received which I'll write you about in email. Thanksgiving was very nice here, we only had my son Ryan, he enjoyed hisself. I wasn't into cooking this year, we should have gone out to eat as it turned out, maybe we'll do that next year. I always make homemade potatoes but just wasn't into any of it, I bought the mashed potatoes and the stuffing. It was satisfactory but certainly not my best. Today, I'm making a turkey potpie which looks like it's going to turn out good. I'm glad you and Bill had a nice day and today. That was very nice of the kids to do that, they did a very good job too. You have such a wonderful family! Well, I'll write you this weekend, have a great weekend yourself,

  Your reference to "No Kissy Face" reminded me of my Dad saying, "No Lip Locks" whenever my boyfriend came over.
Glad to hear that Brianna is feeling better. It will be good for her to be with her Grandma. Decorating for Christmas usually makes everyone feel good.
It sounds like you picked out the best possible dog for you and your entire family. He's good at class, good at home, good with have a real keeper.
Take care and have a good weekend. emoticon

We went to DH's Cousin's house and it was GREAT. I made a couple of Chocolate Cream Pies which were gone in a flash.

Take care and have a Fab Friday. Hope Brianna is feeling better.

Had Visitors Today

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

My youngest daughter Rebekah needed to use my computer today so she came over with the kids. The oldest Felicia is going to venture out on her own to Texas next Thursday. She had it all well planned before she told anyone.She had told me she would like to move out there but not that she was. Well while she was visiting out there she got a job,an apartment and a car so she is all set.She goes for 10 days of training and then will come home for one week to get the rest of her stuff. She is a smart girl and will be fine.
here are some pictures of Felicia ,Kayla and Christopher plus Roxy. Roxy got tons of play today.Hopefully she will be good at her class tonight.

I don't know how but I did stay in my calorie range yesterday.I was at high side but I did not go over. I am looking good today too. Am having a lot of fluid so don't know for sure where I am. Just know I have done better with eating. Now have to get back to exercises.
The weather is still awesome here.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow. No matter what , we all have a lot to be thankful for.
And that reminds me I was very glad to see Jennifer Grey win DWTS

Where is Felicia moving in TX? What line of work is she going into? Sounds like she has a good head on her shoulders! I wish her success!
It is late and I have to get up early in the AM, so guess I should get to bed!
Have a wonderful day tomorrow.
Oh, our weather was great today. It is supposed to freeze tonight and tomorrow's high is supposed to be only in the 40's and tomorrow night about 22. It is shill 66 now but about midnight it is should hit! No moisture, thank goodness!

    Sounds like something I did... Dan and I found the house we wanted to buy and got the ball rolling on that while I was still finishing college and he was on disability... it's amazing what planning and determination and well, youthful naivety, can do for you!

And ME TOO on Jennifer's win! She was the best throughout the season.

Not much going on. I have done better with eating and am fixing an all veggies supper.Fresh green beans are in steamer and cauliflower,squash and carrots are in oven.Have some store bought already cooked sweet potatoes.Have a couple of tomatoes chilling in fridge.
I have showed you pic of how roxy tries to get in Bill's lap.Here is what she does to me.She is just laying head on my knee in one and the other she just lightly put her front paws only in my lap.The 3rd one is where I let her outside and she decided to stay. Then one lonely butterfly
Here is a cute one of Haven I missed the other day.You can see how good Roxy was with her
Roxy goes to her 2nd class tomorrow night.She does everything she is suppose to do. When she wants too.Just like a kid.
I am trying to get my head on right so I can lose this weight. It is not uncommon for me to go thru some depression during the holidays.usually it happens near Christmas.It only lasts a short time but seems to be getting to me sooner this year.gaining weight back upsets me too. You would think it would motivate me to do better.Sometimes it does the opposite. But I have not nor will I give guys are doing it so i know it can be done.I did it.Just will give myself a few good lashes to get back on track.
We are still having beautiful weather. For now anyway.
Ok Gotta go check supper.Hope you are all doing well.

    You'll get back on track, I have no doubt about that. Holidays are hard for me too. I know I'm going to be bad about eating too. I haven't gotten on board after having Addison, but I will get there. This sure isn't an easy road to take but together we'll get there.

I love eating only veggies for dinner but I don't do it often because nobody else likes it. Jason is a meat kind of guy and I've been depriving him.

Roxy looks so sweet. I think she's a good fit for you and Bill.

    We had a truly amazing November. Last Monday the temp was near 70 then yesterday reality set in. Never got above 30 yesterday and today we are getting up to 35.
I once had a dog that if she knew you were looking at her out the window she would start shivering and look so sad. But, if she didn't see you in the window, she was jumping and playing!

Your supper sounds wonderful. I love veggies, have to make myself eat meat. But I know I need some and so does Ted so try to have some at least 2 meals a day. Not much though.
Roxey is such a sweety. Makes me wish we had a dog, have to keep telling myself we don't need one right now!
I am hit with depression at the holidays, too. It is never easy for Ted or I, but we manage to get through them. I just tell myself to count the blessings I have.
You will get back on is hard...but you will do it!
Hope your grandkids are still improving! Take care of your self!

    Love the pictures! You made me want to come to your house for supper...I don't eat a lot of meat; all those veggie sounded soo good! Did you have a piece of cornbread to go with it? Not allowed probably on your eating plan, but still good! Are you trying to housetrain Roxy? If so, how is that going?

I keep telling myself I didn't gain all this weight over a short time. It will take time to get where I need to be. The great thing is that it shouldn't take me ten years to take it off like it did for me to realize in 10 years that I needed to get busy and take it off.

  Your supper sounds delicious........I wish I lived next door. Roxy is just like our 2 dogs.......never happier than when as close to you and Bill as possible and less than happy when she is separated from you and outside. It will be interesting to see what she does as an encore after her first class!!!
I wish you the best in your weight loss effort. Mine has suffered some gain, but no loss either. I can't wait to get rid of this dizziness so that I can go back to walking. It is impossible right now.
Take care. emoticon

Not much going on. Both grandkids are doing good.
I have been doing pretty much nothing. Except eat badly.
Part of my problem is I like my cooking.I really don't have anything to say. I will be watching DWTS but it won't be the same without Brandy.
I am glad tomorrow is a new day.Hope you guys had a good day

Lazy Sunday

Sunday, November 21, 2010

I am trying to do as little as possible today.
Brianna is home resting and seems to be doing ok.
Got a call earlier that my grandson was in ER about to get his appendics out. Surgery is over and he is doing good.His parents are with him.He is in college in Gainesville. A good kid.
My weigh in was not so good but could have been worse. I stayed the same.
It is nap time but I will share some pictures I took.Roxy is not allowed to sit in our laps but she got the best of Bill here. She likes her picture taken and acts like she is posing.

Here is an orchid that just bloomed. I didn't even know I had one like it.And then one of my cactus that is full of babies. Last is closeup of cactus.Look closely and you can see water drops

Ok nothing new.Going to go take a nap.Hope you are having a good weekend

That Roxy is a real ham. Both of our dogs love to get their pictures taken too and will actually get into a pose if we walk by with the camera. They are so much smarter than we give them credit for.
You have such a green thumb!!!!!! BOTH your orchid and cactus look in optimum health. I have given up on orchids. I am the "Kiss of Death" to both Orchids and African Violets!!!
