I am still not use to Bill only working 3 days a week. I like it but it is a change.
His down in the dumps this afternoon as his bowling today was not good. He has gone to get meat for picnic tomorrow. I will not be going for 2 reasons.It is too hot and I don't like picnics.
I did not go to Felicia's baby shower tonight either.
I made a roast for supper and the meat was not a great cut. I didn't even save the leftovers.Wasn't good enough to waste calories on.
I did exercise today and scale is down but it goes up and down every day.
I do have some pics to share. Here is the Jamaican orange.Once peeled it is size of small grapefruit. I liked it a lot.
This is another orchid that has started to bloom.It only has part of one leaf but several buds.
I showed you this plant the other day when it only had 1 bloom.
I have always wanted gardenias and they always died on me or stayed small with very few blooms. I got this small gardenia tree last year and I saw it was full of blooms
And I saw this little guy when I went up on pool deck to read in the sunshine.I sat up there for 15 minutes and it got very hot.
I have decided to go to exercise room at night and do something easy for at least 10 minutes. This is in addition to what I do earlier in the day.
I didn't forget the cemetery pictures but I wanted to look up the history first.
Hope you had a good day and your weekend is wonderful.
I have gotten a lot of comments on my vblog today. It is still hard to believe so many people have seen it.
Ok good night to all.
Oh I was not happy with AI last night. One of my top 3 went home. If either girls win I will stop watching.
Decided I needed to get out of house so we went out for lunch and then later to Walmart. After lunch Bill needed to go by a job site and pick up his drill he left so we stopped at an old cemetery. I will show some pics from cemetery tomorrow. It is a very old black cemetery that people have finally cleaned it up. But that is tomorrow.
Went to Walmart to find the BL meals but the one closet to us didn't have them. I was just curious about how many calories etc they were.
So I picked up a basket for my books and a new basket for Roxy's toys.Plus a couple of kitchen gadgets. And a new fruit that I will show tomorrow after I try it. It is an Ugli tangelo from Jamaica. It looks like a wrinkled grapefruit.
The eagles are getting big.I hope at some point they grow into their fat lower body and big feet.
I do have some flowers blooming out front.This hibiscus is about 7 inches across. and my desert roses are blooming again.This is only the two red ones.I have one more that is a pale pink.Almost white My eating is all over the place. I would see skinny people at Walmart and get pis-sed. Not their fault but I guess it just makes me feel bad because I can't get this weight off. One of my spark pals that I admire so much blogged about how she couldn't understand why people would keep eating too much when it made them feel bad. Well I do it and I don't understand it either. If I put my hand on a fire and it burnt me I wouldn't do it again. But why I and many others mistreat our bodies is a mystery to me. Heck it is a mystery to me how I got so heavy in the first place. I have not always been heavy.Ok No Beat Ups Just get ups. I just need less get ups.
Ok Oh Roxy did better on her walk last night. Bill kept her lease shorter and kept her on other side of him when they saw other dogs. But she was still not good.
Ok Have a good night all.
Somehow we skipped spring and went straight to summer.
I am still struggling with my everything. But I did stay in my range yesterday and got my exercises done today.
I don't think I gave the name of the bird hero.It was a mockingbird. A very fierce and fearless bird.It chases snakes,dogs,cats and sometimes will dive bomb humans.The snake was not a dangerous one.Just a back yard black snake.
As most of you know the majority of my pics come from right here thru this window.So you do see a lot of the same things.
I have been watching some seed pods floating around out there and they are kinda kewl so here are some pics.
I think they are very delicate looking.
Bill brought home the 3rd and final paint sample. I think it will be the one I am thinking of in my mind.Which is a dangerous place to be.
Roxy has been very bad on her walks with Bill.She now goes bonkers whenever she sees another dog. Bill talked to trainer yesterday and he was puzzled as she is usually very good around other dogs.And she is good at dog park. He suggested a harness to walk her with which i HAVE BEEN MENTIONING TO bILL TO TRY. HE TOLD BILL TO PUT HER DOWN ON GROUND UNTIL SHE CALMED DOWN.HE TRIED BUT COULDN'T GET HER DOWN SHE WAS SO EXCITED. SHE ALMOST GOT OUT OF HARNESS. HE IS GOING TO MAKE HARNESS A LITTLE TIGHTER. OOPS. Sorry about the caps lettering but I don't want to rewrite. He made her lay down when Angel and Brianna came til she calmed down.Maybe if he does it here a few times he can do it when walking her. She has never been an aggressive dog and only recently when he walks her.
Ok Gotta go. Hope you all had a good day. Mine was so so.
We had another snake and Bill took Roxy out to help find where it hid. Sissy girl never even barked or smelled it. Bill got it penned in a corner and then cut his finger bad when metal bar he had in hand broke.Snake went on it's merry way. Roxy paid no attention. Most dogs would have gone bonkers at least barking. I was feeling safe out there because I thought she would warn me but now I know different.
My eating has been better so far today. i have a pan with cauliflower,broccolli and sliced carrots I cooked on top of stove in some chicken broth.Then I have chicken potatoes and onion i cooked in oven.Just need Bill to get home so we can eat.
He went by Home Depot to get a lighter shade of the paint I liked the best. The two we got are pretty but darker than what I want.
Rebekah had to take Felicia to ER last night.Turns out she was dehydrated.
But it was good as she now has a doctor that will see her. Turns out the baby will be coming sooner than we thought.She is further along. Hopefully it won't be weekend we are in Daytona. I told her today I would not come to hospital but would come when she gets home. That way we can have one on one time.She will be flooded with people at hospital. I think she was a little disappointed but I think it is best for me. I didn't tell her I am also not going to the baby shower this Friday.
Supper turned out very good. I still have lots of calories but we will see what the rest of night brings.I still have leftover salad from lunch that calories are already counted.
Here are my butterfly visitor today.
