Unfortunately I am not doing good .My motivation is at an all time low. But hopefully it will return. Never say never.
Now on to the latest Bill story. i thought it was very funny but then I am often told I have a wired sense of humor. Monday I cooked a roast in the oven and altho I rarely have bread I thought biscuits sounded good. So I sent Bill a text. Now he can read texts but never replies or sends them.Which might have saved him some embarrassment. Anyway. I send a text that says for him to swing into KFC and pick up biscuits to go with supper. Now I am always telling him that he doesn't listen to me.Sound familiar ladies. Any way I heard him drive up and I take roast out of oven and put it on top of stove. Then he comes into the kitchen with a large bag from KFC. I asked him what he had and he said I pick up supper like you said. I then said really and pointed to the stove. His face was priceless. All he could say was oops. When I finished laughing at him I made him get the text out to be sure I haven't written the wrong thing. I hadn't.He saw biscuits and KFC and that was all.
wasn't a loss tho as he did have some good corn that went good with supper.The rest went in fridge and we had it last night. Best part was rubbing it in that he didn't pay attention to what I said
I did take a couple of pictures of 2 tomato hornworm which according the web site I found will turn into a moth. I found a great site that you can find what all kinds of things are. www.discoverlife.org/nh/
oops Gotta go. We are having fresh green beans and cauliflower cooked in steamer with cube steak.Steamer is acting up for some reason.Hope you had a good day.
Not much going on. I ave a roast in the oven and the smell is to die for.
I have a few odds and ends to talk about.
First is Ms Roxy. If I had a dog house she would have been in it. I did not get up til late this morning and whenever I took a couple of potty breaks she was in her bed in my bedroom. But she had been a very busy girl. When I got up she followed me until she saw me look back here.Then she went under the little table next to the recliner.Which she stayed at until I let her out to do her business. This is what I saw.
Actually I thought it was funny but didn't let her know. She knew I wasn't happy and when she could stand it no longer she jumped in my lap when I was in recliner to get petted. Yes she has worn us out and she is allowed to sit with me once a day when I tell her.
Next.have you ever watched that program called swamp people. Wow What a way to earn a living. It is kind of interesting and sad too. One young man has a wife and 2 kids and can't read or write. He just recently learned to caught gator.He makes part of his living catching snakes. They can only catch gator for 30 days but it does look like some do very well. Others not so good. Kinda wild seeing them put a 12 foot gator in a 14# boat.
On another program about Florida I learned that when crab legs are brought in they have to be cook right away as they can't be packed in ice for long like fish.I never knew that.
On my friend Gloria's page she talked about a site where you download your picture now and it will show what you will look like after losing weight. It didn't go high enough for me but I did the max of 90#
Here is the before and after

Atho the heat is bad for my plants I do have some more coneflowers that are starting to bloom
Ok Thats me stopping by to chat today. Hope you had a good day.
Another hot day in Florida.
I decided I wanted to treat myself to some crab soup. i have never made it so I asked a spark friend how she made hers and also checked out some recipes on spark.There are too types.Tomato base and cream base. I made the cream one and it was very good. I used just a little too much Old Bay seasoning and it was a little too spicy. The other type is almost just a veggie soup with crab thrown in. I saved a little crab to throw in with one of my bags of soup I always have.
I was worried that the can of crab would be mushy like some tuna fish is but it was very nice. It was claw claws and had a lot of whole claw meat and rest was chunky pieces.
I know someone will ask how I made it so here is the recipe. It is up to you to adjust amount according to your taste.
Eleni’s crab soup (milk version)
1 can celery soup
1 pint half & half ( I used fat free)
milk?? I used about ½ cup to 1 cup
About 12 oz of crab meat ( I bought a 16oz can of claw meat and used almost all of it)
Large potato cubed in same cubes
¼ to ½ small onion
Can chicken broth
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning ( I used 1 ½ teaspoon and it was a tad spicy. I should have not added the extra ½ teaspoon)
I cut the potato into small cubes and cooked in the chicken broth along with chopped onion. Once potatoes were done I lowered the heat and I added the cream of celery soup and half and half. Then added milk to consistency I wanted and added Old Bay. Then put in crab meat. Heat very slowly at low til everything is nice and hot.
Can use as much or as little of crab meat as you want.And adjust thickness of broth with milk or half and half.
Recipe that I used as a guide said to use cream of potato soup but I thought fresh potatoes would taste better
Must reduce heat once milk products put or it will curdle.
I finally got all the grocery stuff taken care of this afternoon.
Someone in the area leaves peanuts out and the blue jays grab some. This guy was funny to watch.He was sitting on fence holding it between his feet pecking at it. Another jay tried to steal it from him.
I just looked over at thermometer we have in here that tells us temp outside. It says 98 deg. So it must be 100 or more in direct sun. That is highest I have seen.It has been at 94 the last few days.
Well I have been feeling a little crappy today so I think I will go take another nap. Hope you are having a good weekend.Be careful in this heat as it is bad everywhere.
Just got home from grocery store and have to put up grocerirs so will just post some pics I took today.
Does anyone know what kind of bug this is. It is on my milkweed plant.You will also see where plant is full of butterfly eggs. Bill said we already have a big caterpillar but I couldn't find it. Just these bugs which I haven't had before
