It has been a busy day for me. But I got soup made and laundry done and some crocheting.And cleaned a messy kitchen twice.
here is what 45 cups of soup look like.
And this is what 53 calories of sweet peppers and cucumber slices look like
Trying to get back to what I was doing when I was losing weight.One was making up snack bags for the day early and having them ready. I also have some apple slices in a bag. Used a couple slices chopped up in some cereal this morning.
I am so far behind in my sparking but maybe I can get caught up somewhat tomorrow.
Bill's brother is doing ok so far.They may just change some of his meds.He hasn't seen a heart doc in 5 years. Good old HMO's.
Nothing much going on. Trying to get back on track and stay there.
I didn't post a blog yesterday as I just plain forgot til it was late.Decided to just wait.
As far as I know the new baby and mom are doing ok.Talked to my GD for a few minutes yesterday.She thinks she may go home today. It is very disappointing that I haven't gotten to hold her and it may be a few more days. But I am seeing a lot of pictures on facebook etc.
We were suppose to go grocery shopping yesterday but Bill's brother is in hospital.Bill is bowling this weekend and as soon as he got thru yesterday he went to find out what was going on.Didn't get home til 7pm.They even lost his brother for awhile.They were transferring him to a different hospital and didn't show up.Bill finally talked his sil into finding out what was wrong.Turned out he had some problems and they had to turn around and go back.He finally got there. Should find out today what they will do.He may need a pacemaker.
My eating has been all over the place.I gained 2# which isn't too bad.
I tried a new fruit.I have tried mangos before and didn't like them at all.But this is a mexican mango.It is shaped different and smaller than mangoes I have seen.It didn't taste bad at all and I ate most of it.
Here is the first coneflower in full bloom.I don't like it as well as the pink ones
My other red flower
This is the coneflowers I thought were dead.It will be a few more days til they bloom.
And Roxie with her new toys.
And visitors to back yard
I received so many comments on my friday post that I will not be able to respond to them all.But thank you so much for all the kind thoughts. I am very blessed to have so many spark friends.
Ok Need to get dressed so we can go get groceries when Bill gets home. It is a beautiful sunny day here in Florida.
Abigail Erin arrived at 4;43 this morning weighing 6# 14oz and 19 inches long. I have not had much sleep as I was waiting on the phone calls.My daughter Rebekah was so good about keeping me informed by phone. I even got to hear her cry shortly after she was born Has great lungs. They sent me several photos to my phone.But I didn't realize how much hair she had til Bill took camera up. She looks so much like her mother Felicia. Needless to say she is going to be a very loved baby with all the Aunts and Uncles and 3 sets of Great grandparents. I will see her when they come home and I will be able to spend one on one with them. Bill said her room was full but Rebekah made sure he got baby right away.He said both our daughter and grand daughter looked tired.neither has had much sleep. I didn't get a lot myself. But here is our newest addition.Pretty cool to be a young 65 year old great granny which is what I will be called.
Yes even tho it is friday the 13th it is a great day here
Nothing much going on today.Roxie is much better and I am thankful for that.She was already spoiled rotten and she got lots of extra petting.
My beef stew turned out great.I am glad Angel was here to help eat it.She saved me from eating too much. I appreciate how she tries to help me when her own plate is so full.I made invitations for Brianna's graduation picnic party for her.I can't believe Brianna is finish with school. She is being honored with some others in a couple of weeks for her grades. Bill will go with angel.
No great grandbaby yet. I wanted to go by and see her today but she is still real sick
oops Just got a call.looks like it won't be long.
Ok Gotta run.Hope you are having a good day
Today has been much better. Roxy seems to be much better too.
My special friend Bobbi wrote a whole blog dedicated to me. How could anyone be in a bad mood after reading such nice things about themselves. But she gives me way too much credit. I am so grateful to my spark friends for taking me as I am. That is what i do in return. I am not as near special as she thinks but i will just keep that a secret. I was very touched and also for all the other friends that have been trying to cheer me up. You are indeed the best.
I also have been trying to get back on track today and so far have done well.I only exercised 10 minutes but I tried to talk myself out of that. But I finally made myself go back there. My eating has been good and I am tracking calories. i baked some sliced potatoes and fish covered in chopped can tomatoes with some steamed fresh cauliflower. Have plenty of calories for later.
I am working on trying to not let my children affect my mood and eating so bad. I don't know how I am going to do it but I must find a way. It is getting too hard on me. They are grown ups and there is nothing I can do to solve their problems.
Ok I am still way behind on my posts. But today was much better Much love to you all
PS I just went out with Bill and watered my orchids. The one I showed you with only one leaf and lots of blooms was dead as could be. But here is a small one that is blooming for first time.And then another you have seen but it is now full bloom. I am always surprised at how long the blooms last.I still have the yellow one in house with blooms that have been there for weeks.
Then my big boy cactus was leaning almost completely over and I propped it up with a small pot.
