Dark and Dreary today

Monday, March 28, 2011

It has been dark and dreary all day. Raining non stop. Not my favorite type of day.
A family member has left to go bring Felicia home.As time goes by the story is changing. i knew what I was hearing from her was somewhat different. The boy did not beat her.But he did restrain her and try to keep her from going out door. Unfortunately that was bad too. She should be home by late Wed or Thursday.
I am slowly get back on track.Will start again tonight to not eat after 10. The fluid is staying longer than usual but I will just go with the flow.
Roxy does not like going outside in the rain.Such a sissy girl.
Ok here is an interesting article from Real Age. Since I eat tons of tomatoes it caught my eye.

Surprising Health Benefits of Tomatoes
By RealAge
We already love tomatoes for their heart-supportive powers. But new research on their lesser-known health gifts means you should eat them even more often.
We're talking about gifts like protection against brittle bones, cancer, and even ultraviolet (UV) radiation. So no matter how you slice 'em, put extra 'maters on your sandwiches, salads, and pizzas, too.
Top Tomato Tidbits
Yep, tomatoes seem to do it all, probably thanks to their nutritional profile. They're a rich source of lycopene, beta carotene, lutein, potassium, and vitamins C and A -- nutrients known to help fight inflammation and confer these stellar health benefits:
Extra SPF for skin: Studies have shown that skin becomes less sensitive to UV light damage when lycopene intake is increased through tomato-paste consumption.
Extra strength for bones: Higher lycopene intakes have been linked to better bone mass in studies. And a deficiency may mean weaker bones; women with osteoporosis typically have low blood levels of lycopene)
Extra protection from cancer: Although the cancer protection powers of tomatoes are still under investigation, research suggests that the lycopene in tomatoes may slow the growth of some prostate tumors)
Canned Advantage?
Fresh, ripe tomatoes aren't easy to come by year-round. But canned tomatoes are just as good for you -- possibly even better. The cooking and canning process may increase the bioavailability of lycopene, so your body gets even more. Add a little bit of olive oil and you'll absorb still more. (Ever made your own tomato sauce?

I thought it was interesting that canned tomatoes were also very good for us.
Ok Have a good night and I will be back tomorrow.

  Hi Eleni........
I am glad to hear that Felicia will be home soon. I know you will be very relieved.

    I am so glad your GD will be home soon--glad it wasn't as bad as it looked at first, but he sounds like he might have anger or control issues. Great article on the health benefits of the tomatoes--I love them but should eat more of them. I knew they were full of antioxidants but didn't know how great they are to have a healthy body. My beagle is kinda of a bully but when it rains he becomes so timid and will hardly go outside. I hope the sunshine comes out soon--I get kinda depressed when it's gloomy weather.

    This is really interesting! I LOVE tomatoes more each year and was disappointed when the nutritionist I saw last year said they were to be considered as carbs and limit them. Forget that. I'm watching bread and stuff, but I will be eating tomatoes more and more and more.

Sharing some pictures

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Our daughter Heidi came by with her family today.They brought a salad and we got subway.I also had a plate of watermelon and grapes. It was nice to see them as they live in Orlando. Landon is getting to be a little stinker. I was very surprised when I said it was time for a hair cut. I knew Heidi didn't want to cut it but didn't know Scott was extremely adamant about not cutting it.Bill and I laughed about it after they left. He is a wonderful SIL but has some strange issues. Roxy jumped up on him and he rushed to go wash his hands.He is a germaphobic. bad thing to b in my house.LOL But he is such a great guy tho.
So here are a few pics from today.

I have a hibiscus tree on patio that has the prettiest blooms. And my small orchid has more blooms. I have another orchid that only has 1/2 of 1 leaf but has a bunch of buds that will be blooming. And then there is the sunflower seeds I planted a few days ago.The coneflower seeds have not shown anything yet.

Update on Felicia. Rebekah's (My daughter) BIL is suppose to leave tomorrow to bring her home.So hopefully she will be home by Wed or Thursday at the latest. Rebekah called me from work upset and crying.It is tearing her apart to not be with Felicia.She said Felicia was getting upset so i told her I would call her. I did and she sounds good. She refuses to go stay anywhere.She said the police are sitting in parking lot watching until she leaves.The military came today and got all his military stuff. A big problem will be her dog as her father refuses to let her keep it.It is a 4 month old pit puppy. But we will all feel better once she gets home.
I am still having fluid problems. But it will pass soon. I did better with eating today. Dealing with felicia and her Mom have gotten me off track.
Ok I will say good night for now.Thank you so much for all you concern and thoughtfulness.You guys are the best.

    Still praying for Felicia and you. Landon is very cute but your SIL will be getting upset when they start mistaking him for a girl. I would think those thick curls would also be very hard to keep the tangles out of. Time will tell. It has recently heated up here with kids too. I don't think it will ever end.

I sure can relate to your SIL being germophobic as my DIL is and she's always telling my son to wash his and Noah's hands. Heaven forbid he should catch anything here--LOL. . .and she hates it when he touches our beagle! I know you'll be so happy and relieved once your GD is safe at home. Your flowers are breathtaking!

  Hi Eleni.......
That little Landon is really a cutie..........but I agree with you and Bill. It's time for a hair-cut.
You have got to have the greenest thumb on earth. Your Hibiscus is beautiful, your orchids are always blooming, and your sunflower seeds are huge already!!! I have another orchid question for you. Should I wait to transplant until after mine is finished blooming?
I hope that Felicia comes home soon so that you don't have that worry on your mind. And I also hope that your fluid goes away soon. It must be more difficult to breath when that happens.
I spent the entire day cleaning, so am pooped tonight. Good-night for now.

My Grand Daughter is Having a Rough Time.

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Very upsetting news yesterday. My grand daughter Felicia who moved to Texas and who is almost 8 months pregnant was beaten by her boyfriend. The baby is ok and so is Felicia.Lots of bruises . The guy has 3 warrants and an AWOL Now her Mother is trying to get her home.Someone will drive to Texas and bring her home in the next few days. Police will watch her apartment closely until she leaves. We will all feel better once she is here.
I am off track with my eating.I was doing so good. Fighting fluid again and that always messes me up.,
Today has not been a productive day.Unless you call playing games on computer productive.
My son was suppose to come by but didn't make it.
Tomorrow Heidi is coming by with Landon.She came over from Orlando. It will be nice to see Landon.He is getting so big.
Ok I will say good night for now. I am so far behind in my emails.

    So sorry to hear of what happened to Felicia. I was abused by my first husband, so I can so identify with her. She (and baby) are in my prayers. Family support is so important at times like this, and it sounds like she has it.

I can also identify with you and the fluid problem. I had so many days of higher sodium consumption that I'm fighting it, too. Eating out is NOT my friend, you would think I'd get that through my head! Hope we both get our fluid problem taken care of fast.

    Eleni, Yes, your GD should move back home where she and the baby are safe. I hope she won't decide to forgive him and give him another chance. She should get some counseling so she will realize she doesn't deserve that awful treatment. He should be in jail . . .I know you are so concerned and emotional right now and that's hard as if your like me you turn to food for comfort. Stay strong and take one day at a time. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

I spent my day mending for my youngest son. His work pants had so many holes I hardly had enough material to mend them!!!!! I suggested getting new pants instead, and he wouldn't have it.........they are his "favorite pants."

Pregnancy is such a sweet and vulnerable time, and now that has been ruined for her and she must be terrified for her baby's safety.

I hope she will arrive home safely soon, and of course you must be very emotional and angry.

Grocery day.I am Pooped

Friday, March 25, 2011

I am tired out from yesterday and today. To save Bill some work I moved all the pots from the patio out to butterfly garden.Used my walker and took them one at a time. I would take one out there and come back to patio and sit and rest a second and go again. Took me awhile. Bill went out a minute ago and took a couple of pic for me.And ofcourse he had to take a picture of his other girl friend.

And here is some of Bill's bouganvia.I cut a couple of pieces and put them in water,I don't know if they will last long but they look pretty now.

I did terrible last night but I am back on track today. I just got too frustrated and let it get the best of me.
Well I need to go put some more groceries up. Take care and have a good night.

Plants Are Done.

Thursday, March 24, 2011

The plants are done and I am exhausted. so this will be is the set up Bill fixed for me and it worked well.

I got all the plants from the other day except for the two crotons repotted. They were so root bound. Also fixed 3 of my orchids. have two pots ready for when the plants I ordered get here. So that was a big job done. Bill still has to get the earth box fixed.
I did not exercise today in back room.But I am counting the time I spent on plants.
I did not eat after 10 last night. The scale has gone up but it is fluid.Altho I know I haven't gained it is a downer to see scale up.But it is impossible for me to have a gain.I have been in my range every day for a week or more. Just have to hang tough til fluid goes down. It does hurt the motivation.
ok I am headed to recliner to put my feet up

  Hi Eleni.........
Your set-up for potting plants looks a lot like mine. I was hoping to get out on my patio soon (I washed windows outside in my shirt-sleeves last Saturday), but since then the thermometer has plunged and we have had snow, so I am working on inside painting and sewing projects instead.
I am learning to look at more than just the scale to chart my progress, but it is difficult to see it go up or remain in one place when I do get on it. As long as YOU know that it is fluid, that is all that matters. I know that you are doing a great job and winning the "After 10" battle is wonderful!!!
Take care and rest after all of your work.

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
I too can't put plants out yet, weather report calling for snow Saturday nite. I'd like to be putting winter clothes away today but am wearing a winter sweater. Frost was on the cars this am and snow was seen in a far southern part of my state yesterday but I'm sure thinking spring, does that count? Hopefully, I'm back into life alittle while. I'll email you later with my updates. My scale went down alittle (2 pounds) which makes sense especially now when my taste for food left me and went south somewhere, maybe it will come back one day..anyhoo I hate to see the scale go up too knowing you've been good but since it's fluid, you have to wait on mother nature to get rid of it, sometimes she takes her time, hang in there.

I do have quite afew flowering bushes and yellow vine roses in my front yard but my back yard is mainly a patio and just a postage stamp grassy area with 1 tangerine tree. I'd love to be able to garden but right now with 2 bad knees and a back it would be really hard for me to do it by myself. I sure wish I had a helper (your DH) like you do. It sounds like you both enjoy gardening. You should count it as exercise as I read a friend's blog and she said she counts housework as exercise. . .that should motivate me to get all those dust bunnies swept away--LOL!
