It has been a quiet day. Didn't do much but watch TV,computer and take a nap.
Angel came to clean and brought us supper. It was shepherds pie and was very good. Bill wasn't too sure about it but had to eat some.He went back for 2nds so he liked it too..Had to guess at calories by looking on calorie king.Have been doing good with calories.
Little Abigail had to have minor surgery to remove a tiny cyst just inside her ear lobe.It looked like a tiny blackhead but you could feel a tiny knot there.She did well and is home but still sleepy.
I haven't forgotten to post the soup recipe.I will do it tomorrow for sure.
Weather is great. We have another little cold spell headed this way. But it won't last long.
Here is Abigail just before they put her to sleep.
Hope you all had a good day

  Hi Eleni.........
Now I am hungry for Shepherd's Pie. My Grandma used to make it using beef. Is that what you use?
Sorry to hear about Abigail's surgery. It is always difficult to watch a little one go through anything painful.
Well, our span of great weather is coming to an end. Tonight the storm begins and is supposed to last through Friday. We knew that snow would have to come eventually, but it was nice NOT having to drive in it for this long.
emoticon on your calorie-counting.
Take care.

    Abigail does look sleepy. She is so cute.

Shephard's pie is great. It is one of our favorites. Do you make it with Lamb?

Cold spell headed our way too. Thursday and Friday down to 25 both days and possiblity of some snow.

Take care and do have a good day.

    So glad Abigail's surgery went well--she is a cutie, that's for sure. I love shepherds pie but don't make it very often--glad you and Bill enjoyed it. Angel sounds very thoughtful but so are you.

    The Shepherds pie sounds good, we haven't had one in a long time.
It's good that everything went well for Abigail, she's young to have surgery to remove a cyst.

Beautiul Day in Florida

Monday, January 09, 2012

It has been a sunny beautiful day here.Temp was right at 80 here but is down to 70 now.
Here is one of many reasons I love living in Florida.While many of you are freezing and snow and little blooming on I have this.I took these all but 2 an hour ago.
These an hour ago

These are from the other day
Am doing good with calories. But it always seems to be something. Now have an apron rash.1st one in 3 years. It was better today.
Bill went to a medical supply place and found better pads than poise.Ok my throw it in a skillet and into oven is ready. I haven't forgotten about soup recipe. I need to rewrite it better

    I love seeing your flowers in the winter - have always loved those pink ones which I just misspelled and the checker can't find, hah. I've had to give up on my flowers this winter, but some of the grass in the backyard is coming back. Even though our days get into the 60's, I wouldn't know because I'm stuck in the office! By the time I get out it's chilly again.

    we were just saying that the crocuses should be up soon here. The weather is fooling us. It is 50 for a couple days then goes to 30 but the ground isn't frozen so afraid those bulbs might be confused. I sure envy that 80 though

  Hi Eleni........
Your flowers are beautiful and I have to admit, that I really do miss the blooms that we have for 3 seasons of the year. My Lipstick Plant is flowering right now and looks very healthy. Did you ever get any flowers on the Cleome plants? If you didn't get to thin them, they may not bloom this time. I just don't know how they will do in your climate so I am NOT much help.
Ken has the flu today. He was up all night throwing up and aches all over. I spent the day AWAY with my Mom. He is a typical GUY when he is sick.........the world should stop spinning and everyone should be feeling sorry for him. I do feel bad when he is sick, but not as bad as he thinks I should feel.
Later.........

    80 degrees sounds wonderful!!! It's been pretty mild here. Over the weekend it was 50. It's supposed to be in the upper 40's tomorrow. I'm waiting for Mother Nature to release her furry.

Beautiful flowers! My plants I bought in the Spring are almost dead. I always forget to water them.

Sunday

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Made it to lunch and grocery store and it pooped me out. Came home and took my meds and straight to bed for a nap.I did bring half my lunch home for supper. I still have all the groceries to do. Bill will take cabinet stuff to back room and I can take care of fridge stuff tomorrow.He put it in fridge but have some meat to wrap and veggies to clean. And guess what I found. Cans of popcorn.They are 1/2 the size of the big ones but was only $3 so I got just one. I thought I could put my medicine bottles in it but Bill says it won't hold it.
I also found some packages of cantaloupe and watermelon cut in little sticks. So lazy me got then.These are shaped like a pack of chewing gum instead of cut up chunks.
I have been doing ok with calories so far.haven't been tracking but a few days, Losing weight is only thing that will help in so many things.Ok here are a few pics to share. I love this one of Bill and Abigail

bath time is fun time

And this is what you can afford when you only have 2 grand kids. it was bought at a bazaar sale. We have 13 so ours get $20 and lucky to get that.

This is just cute

So glad to read that you were out and about today for lunch and grocery shopping. It really helps to get out and do things even if it does wear you out some.

I love the picture of Abigail and Bill and the one with her hair in a twist is so cute. She has the most beautiful eyes.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

I hate cutting up fruits. If I can find them cut up already I'll buy them. The apple slices are great. I love the little packages of cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots. They're good raw but being able to microwave them in the package is an instant lunch for me.

Hopefully sleep will come easy for you tonight.

  Hi Eleni.........

I am glad to read that you are feeling better after resting most of the day. If that is what you need to do then that is what you should do.

I thought of you twice today...........when I saw the popcorn and then when the weatherman announced that it was 56 degrees. It isn't often that we have a 50 degree day in Wisconsin in January! Ken even washed the car in the driveway yesterday! All I could think was that we thought it was a "heat wave" and Eleni would be turning on the heat!

Take care my friend.

had too much company

Friday, January 06, 2012

had too much company but it was nice.I will recoup tomorrow.
Brianna came and did some housework and took Christmas trees down.
Then Felicia,Rebekah and abigail came. Abigail was so good..I wouldn't let them take any pics but I do have a good one of her with Bill that I will post tomorrow.Rebekah posted some old pics on facebook.I didn't know she was in back room taking pics of pics.
Felicia got her lesson in making soup and it turned out good. She was proud of herself.It is such an easy soup to make.I need to rewrite it and then I will post it.
Well I am ready to just rest.
Hope you had a good day.
Oh Brianna brought me the tin of popcorn.
We put Roxy in her cage when Abigail came.Then Bill took her to park when he got home

  Hi Eleni.........
I thought of you today when I was shopping. I found a large tin of the popcorn you like. If you lived closer, I would have bought it for you.

I thought that you might be pretty tired after the "Girl's" visit. It is so good to be with them, but it does take energy just to interact. I hope that you are getting the rest that you need.

Take care.
