I wasn't sure if I would have any pics today but went outside and got a few. The pupa hasn't changed much that I can tell but it should change soon.
I love to take pics of dragonflies.
I have been doing great with my calories but haven't seen it on the scale yet. That is always the hardest.When you know scale should drop and it doesn't. I am sure some of scale is fluid. I am actually surprised myself that I have keep the calories down but i am not motivated at all.
We got a little rain this morning but sun came out and we are in the 90's.
Ok Nothing going on here. We still haven't finished our domino game. We are close but one hand can change that quick.
Here are he pics.
Dragonflies always look like prehistoric creatures.
Ok Hope you had a good day. Gotta get ready for supper. Fish tonight
Seem to be extra tired today.Spent a lot of time napping. It happens some days and I go with the flow.
i did stay in my calorie range again last night which surprised me. I am doing good so far today.
I saw another large black swallow tail butterfly and a yellow sulfur.But they were just teasing as they only flew by and waved at me. The pupa has changed yet but seems to have more spots on it. It took the first one 7 days to become a butterfly.It has been 5 days since we found this one.So it should be soon.Hopefully it won't be during the night.
I always have these butterflies.Just having more at same time.
My smallest and only plumaria that blooms
My big orchid. I counted a total of 19 stems that will have blooms
And now my grandson Tyler and Great Grand daughter Abigail
OK I better go check supper. Chicken potatoes,carrots cauliflower baked in oven. Smells good. Hope you had a good day.
I had planned to do this early but didn't happen. I thought it was a good day until after supper. Bill waited til then to tell me Ben was getting evicted if he couldn't borrow money from us. i called Ben and told him we would loan him more but this was it until he pays us back. I also told him he was only getting it because of his children. I get so tired of this crap.
I did get a few things done. I cleaned my refridgerator out from top to bottom. That is a biggie for me. I have done good with my eating so far but have to admit I am very aggravated right now.Hopefully the rest of the night will go well.
Ok here are today's pics.
First is the pupa today.i don't think it will be much longer.
The I had 2 butterflies on same plant as same time.
Then a small skipper
Then Bill's ginger and then plant Bill bought the other day
And last is a moth that got in house
Here is a few flowers and my obscene cactus
Ok Hope you had a good day
OOps I missed Bill's plant.here it is
Just got back from grocery store and have to get it put away.I did go over calories yesterday but not bad. I wasn't going to eat out tonight but Bill has worked so hard in back yard I decided to take him to his favorite place.Carrabbas. I was glad to see that they now have cups of soup and smaller salads. I had a little of Bill's soup and we shared the salad. I also had them bring a box when they brought food. Brought part home for snack later.Only had one piece of bread
The butterflies like the new plants.
It is finally finished. As some plants go dormant or die we will replace them. Next I will finish hummingbird area. I found out that the new purple plant is also a good hummingbird so Bill will go back and grab one. He went to Home Depot and got card for white flower. It is a pentas. Also found a great site that tells stuff about the different flowers and what kind to plant with them. I had all three it said went with the pentas.We just fine tuned the original garden and it looks better too.
First is the back side.3rd window from left is where I sit and take pictures. Bill took almost all todays pics for me. Then the original garden,then the view from my window and then new lower new area. Heart planter and unusual new plant
And we had a new butterfly come. I had one of these a long time ago but this one hung around a long time and Bill went outside and got better pics that I did. The hard part was identifying it.It took me about an hour. It was in my book but coloring was too dark in book.found a great site to identify from now on. i had to go thru 33 pages before I found it. This is a White Peacock or Anartia Jatrohhae. usually is in south Florida year round but travels up state during the summer.
First is the pupa #2 today
I think i missed one but this is plenty.
I was in my calorie range again last night. I might go over a little tonight. Ok Gotta go.Bill has card table out so that means a board game,need to get in there before he changes his mind
