Dark and gloomy today. Good day for napping which I am going to do as soon as I write this.
Eating out too many times gave me a gain.I am hoping it is the sodium. I have been doing great with exercising. Even got 2 new tapes which are more aerobic than what I have.
Went and took nap first.
I made Angel 2 pots of beans.And I ate too many of the pinto,northern mix.Made my self sick. tasted good as I ate them but I paid for it. But I have her 2 quarts of the one and almost 2 quarts of the red beans.That way she can eat some and freeze some. i don't want to see any beans for a long time. I hope my stomach settles down as Bill is suppose to grill steaks later and right now I want nothing.
I tried to exercise earlier but only lasted my 10 minutes. I will do more later.
When we were out and about yesterday we stopped at the town parking lot that has a lot of flowers blooming.The local garden club maintains flowers there.
i have seem this first bush many times and this is first time I saw anything but just the green.I thought it was quite interesting.I have no idea what it's name is.
here are some others I thought were pretty plus a green sprig on side of tree I thought was neat looking
This is why i always try to have a camera with me other than one on my phone. Even in a parking lot you can sometimes find something interesting or beautiful.
OK hope you are having a good weekend.
When we went to lunch yesterday we saw a woman with a knee walker.I never knew they made such a thing.She had a broke foot and instead of crutches she had her knee on this narrow walker and skipped with good foot.Hard to describe but she said it was so much better than crutches. We are going to call around and see if we can find one locally so Angel can see if it will help her.She is putting her foot down way too much. They can be rented from internet but it would be cheaper to buy a cheap type than rent.
Bill and I got some errands today.We still have to get groceries tomorrow. I almost have the grocery list ready.
We had our pizza lunch and I reserved the back room there for Angel.She is having Brianna's 18th BD party there. I can't believe she is almost 18. And 2 other grand daughters will be 16 this year.Alyssa next week.
Then to Wal Mart. The card table we play board games on and I make up my meds on has had a broke leg for ever.We finally got another one to replace it. Yesterday I broke the handle on my cast iron dutch oven, Went to get another one and got a different style. I should have gotten the bigger one and I may still go back and get it. The lid for this one will also fit my big skillet. It is really a deep fryer but I am going to use it as a dutch oven.
Here are some pictures of bush out front. The colored seeds are real.The orange flower is Bill's warped sense of humor. They are not real.They were some leftover plastic flowers and he stuck them in bush.
here is a dove that was sitting outside window
And wouldn't be complete without Roxy.
I did 44 minutes of one of my new tapes. Jodi Stoloves chair dancing around the world.
Tomorrow I will try to do Through the decades.
Eating hasn't been the greatest but still better than it was. So I am hanging in there. Our weather is still great.Actually hot during the day. We are suppose to get some rain tomorrow.
Ok Hope you had a good day. I need to try and catch up on my emails.I am always behind
I had a busy day.For me.
I woke up at 6 and couldn't get back to sleep so I got up. I had a Doc appointment at 10. It was for Medtronic to check my device. There have been no incidences since I went back on arythmia med. He looked at my history to see when I had it go off.The time I passed out. He said my heart was going over 300 beats a minute. Which means it was just quivering and not pumping any blood. Difib did its job. He showed where I went into fibrillation but pacemaker got rythum back on another day.. This device is amazing. In the last 6 months it has saved my life 3 times. I love modern medicine. I may have bad days like yesterday and take a ton of meds but I am still here doing my thing.
Came home and took a short rest and then met friends for lunch. The picture isn't good as I had to use my cell phone. I took my little camera in but battery was bad and I was too lazy to go out to car and get my other camera.
The lady to my right is Emma.She is a very accomplished pen and ink artist that I met when I took classes from her and we became good friends. The other lady is JoJo and she paints beautiful oils and I met her in one of Emma's classes. She is also the one that had me bring my momma orchid to her orchid club. It was nice to see them both.
I noticed when I left house and when i came home that all the birds are very active and loud today. As i was sitting here I saw this guy. Since I take it thru the window this is bad time of day to do it.Can't get a real clear picture but here they are anyway
We are still having warm weather.It was 60 on patio at 6 am.
Ok i need to prep supper. I am going to just throw some chicken in a pan and throw some spices on it and into the oven it goes. Will put a few taters with it. I love one pot meals.
Not one of my better days. I am feeling much better now.I spent most of day in bed. It happens every once in awhile where I have what I call a tired day. Just something I deal with.
No exercises today altho i may lift my weights a few times before I go to bed.
Have done good with eating.
My 2 new exercise tapes came so i will check them out tomorrow.
Weather is still very warm just dark and cloudy today.
Tomorrow will be a busy day.Glad my tired day hit today. i am going in to get my pacemaker/defib check in am and then meeting art friends for lunch. I had to cancel a lunch with them a few weeks ago. So i will just say goodnight for now.Hope all my freezing friends are staying warm.
I feel bad saying how nice our weather is when so many of you are in for a severe winter storm.We were in the 70's today and I had to turn my ac on. But that is why I love living here.
But do be careful all of you.This is suppose to be a very dangerous blizzard.
Tomorrow is my oldest daughter Joy's birthday. I can't believe she will be 42 years old. Seems like yesterday when she was born and her older brother who was only 4 told me to take her back because he wanted another brother.But I had 2 boys and I wanted a little girl so I was happy.
I did much better with my exercises today.I got a total of 61 minutes done.I used 5 different tapes to get it done but it adds up. Roxy is my cheer leader.Ofcourse in her sleep as that is what she does on her sunny spot.
I did get a good laugh on her today.It is like having a small child. I heard her with something in living room and couldn't quite see what it was.So I told her to bring it to me and she did. It was a poise pad she got out of the package in bathroom. I told her to go get in her cage and she went.Surprised me. She had to actually stick her nose inside the bag to get it out. But if that is worse she does I am happy.
I have also done good with eating yesterday and today. I had a lot of fluid yesterday and on top of that I took my 2nd water pills late so I was up a lot last night.But I dropped almost 10# of fluid weight. Which is not unusual at times.
I taped the new show Heavy but haven't looked at it yet.
Tonight I am taping the NCIS's and watching BL. BL is not so interesting anymore.Too much yelling and crying and complaining. I like the last few shows the best.
Ok Stay safe my friends.
