Nothing much going on.Did a lot of resting today.
Bill did not do as well as he wanted today but did qualify for senior games in Dec. He hurt his leg at beginning.
I am watching the red carpet. Millions of dollars in clothes. I am not a big Billy Crystal fan but I do like seeing all the stars.
I am taping Worst Cooks which is fun to watch.Always like Anne Burrell. Hard to imagine someone can be as bad a cook as some of these people are.
Hope you had a good day
Here is Brianna and little Haven at Disney Land.

    Glad you had a day of rest. So sorry to hear Bill did not do as well as he wanted. Still, did good so do tell him congrats.

Love the photo of Brianna and Haven.

BTW - I find it hard to believe some of those cooks are so bad. Vanilla on Chicken? Hello?

  Hi Eleni.......
Is Brianna at Disneyland right now? My son and family were there on February 16th. Elizabeth loved it!!!

I have the Academy Awards on right now and am taping The Amazing Race. There is a young couple from Madison on AR, so it is more fun to watch.

Sorry to hear that Bill didn't do as well as he hoped. There's always next time.

I have a busy week coming up and the weather is NOT supposed to be good. I have to travel 60 miles on Tuesday and a snow storm is predicted. I hope the weatherperson is WRONG!

Have a great week.

    We have the red carpet on too. I don't know who most of the people are!! LOL I haven't seen any of the movies either.

I enjoy the worst cook tv show too. My Alex told me I needed to be on it. I like to think I can cook better than that.

Haven has gotten much bigger. Brianna looks great. She's beautiful.

Made it to grocery store. My big outing for the week.
We went to lunch first and I boxed up half of mine when it came. It was a turkey club and some fries. I deconstructed the half sandwich at supper. Took turkey out and used fresh bread and tomatoes.
Haven't done much else today. Bill will be going back to Sarasota tomorrow for a senior bowling tournament. Hope he does as good as he has been this weekend.
If he didn't have to go so early I would go with him and go see my sister that just moved into the area.
being out and about I have drank more fluid today but I am still doing real good at not drinking too much. Also doing good with eating.Scale seems to be slowly dropping.
Well that's about it. I finally finished the last Eragon book. I still think the first one was the best.
Hope your weekend is going good. emoticon emoticon

    Usually grocery shopping and/or seeing my GS is the highlight of my week. I'd like to do more but my mobility isn't too good and I usually am watching every penny so it's just cheaper to stay home. I also hope Bill has a great time bowling and comes back with a big Trophy. You're such a great couple. It is too bad that you couldn't have gone with him and visited with your Sister there--there will be another time. Wonderful that your watching your fluid intake and food--good for you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  Hi Eleni........
I am so glad that you got to go to the grocery store today. Sometimes it doesn't matter where you go......just that you are able to go and see different scenery and people.........good for the mind and body.
Good luck to Bill tomorrow. My Dad bowled his entire life and never stopped loving it. He said it kept him young.
emoticon on doing so well on your eating and drinking. I knew you could do it.
Take care and have a great rest of the weekend.

Pics of Abigail etc

Friday, February 24, 2012

here are pics of Abigail our great grand daughter. She was so proud of herself when she pulled herself up on my walker.

This butterfly stopped by today..His wings look a little ragged.

I didn't know until today that my lilac bush was blooming.I have had it forever.When we closed in porch it had to be cut way back and it is like new now.I had Bill take pic.The far pic could have been better but closeup is a good one

This is my niece Debbie and her 2nd grandson.I was 10 years old when she was born and I was so close to my sister that I thought Debbie was mine too.Now she is a grandmother

And just one more thing. You bowlers will know what this means.Bill got a 907 set which was his first 900 game and is suppose to be something special.

    Lovely photos Eleni! Abigail is a sweetheart, seeing a butterfly in the middle of winter is awesome and the lilac bush coming in bloom is a treat for my eyes!

Isn't it something to see our nieces and nephews grow older? My oldest sister is 20 years older than me [I'm the 'baby' of a family of 7] and her son is only 2 years younger than me and he's a big guy and we get the biggest kick when we meet . . . he always hugs me and says "Auntie dear", lol. We could be brother and sister, our ages are so close.

  Hi Eleni........
How old is Abigail now? Her hair looks like it is getting lighter as she grows older. She is so cute and now that she is getting the hang of walking, she will be unstoppable.

Your flowers are beautiful and the butterfly looks like he had a LONG flight. Maybe he flew through some of the wind the South has been getting!

Tell Bill emoticon!!!!! That score IS something SPECIAL!!!

Have a great weekend.

Been One of These Days

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

It has been one of those days that has been a hard day for eating. Have eaten way too much today. Started off with pineapple and ate 3 snack cups for breakfast. That 420 cal.I never eat that many calories for breakfast. Then at lunch I had 2 cans of campbell soup that I mixed together. Homestyle chicken noodle and the new creamy chicken noodle and added a lemon. Plus a cup of chicken broth. And if that wasn't bad enough I had buttered crackers with it. So I don't have many calories left for the day plus the sodium was terrible. But this is first day like this in a long time so I am not going to get too upset. Even if I go over in calories it won't be real bad.
Stil doing good with water.Some days are more than I want but more are much less. And both are really less than what I was drinking. So all in all I am doing good.
It is starting to get cloudy and windy outside.Looks like rain is on the way.TV shows a bad storm coming from Gulf.
Bill will be either bowling or throwing horseshoes for the next 4 days.So I won't see much of him this weekend. His birthday is tomorrow so I hope he has fun. Hard to believe he will be 69.
Here is the red rose bud from yesterday.It is opening up real nice

This plant that Bill cleaned up and then those crazy dogs that got in yard almost destroyed. It doesn't bloom but center of plant turns red.


ok thats it for me. gotta go see how I am going to fix the leftovers from last night.I may just cook some noodles and add it to mixture.

    Have you tried the lower sodium Campbell's and Progresso soups? You could probably check out Campbell's & Progresso's websites, check out their nutrition pages and get familiar with their lower sodium options and print the pictures of the cans,for Bill, so they're easier for him to find them in the grocery store, for you.

We all have those days when we just want to have something and just go for it. Tomorrow will be better for you.

It is snowing here but we won't get too much overnight, hopefully!

    We all have days like you've had. I usually eat too much when I'm tired and/if it's colder weather. I'm glad you're otherwise doing so well. OMG, Bill looks 10 years younger--and does keep so busy. Your Garden is beautiful so you both must have green thumbs. I'm trying myself to feel better as I haven't felt well for about a week and it sucks. Continue to have a good day.

  Hi Eleni......
I emoticonthat plant that turns red in the unusual. You have such a great variety of plants!!!
You are right not to beat yourself up for one slip-up. It happens to all of us and you will turn it around. You have worked too hard not to.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Bill. He certainly doesn't look 69!
Today, I feel 99. I was awake most of the night with a UTI, went to the clinic this morning for a test, and am still waiting for them to call telling me that my prescription is ready. Must close for now and pick Elizabeth up. Jason had an emergency at work, so she will be with us for supper and early evening. I wish I felt better, so I could be more fun.
