Bill tried to pull a smart one on me. Years ago when I have a ton of bird feeders outside front window he played a joke on me.He got a very real looking bird and set it up when I wasn't looking. It thought it was so funny when I grabbed camera. Took me a few seconds to realize what he did.'So he tried it with a fake butterfly. Didn't work.For one thing there are none like it in florida and plastic on end. I t9ld him Fool me once shame on you--fool me twice shame on me. I think he was a little disappointed he didn't fool me. emoticon

I am still doing good with my eating. Tonight is our normal pizza night and I am ordering Bill's mac & cheese he likes. But I am having food here.I have some low fat chowder and salad. I will add a little more potatoes to can to make it more filling.
Bill got his checkup today and he is doing good.
I am seeing more butterflies each day but just the same 2 kinds. Once my coneflowers start blooming It will get even more.
Ok I will say goodnight for now.Hope you are all well.

  Hi Eleni.........
All I can say is that I am glad that Bill and Ken don't live close to each other. What one didn't think of the other would!!!
It does keep life interesting though, doesn't it?!?!

    It does sound like you had a good day and did great. Bill is so funny trying to fool you again, too bad it didn't work this time. . .I love the fact that he loves to tease you as once in awhile it helps make us laugh. Way to go with your eating and good attitude.

Brianna Came to Do Housework and Make Grandpa Brownies

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Brianna made and ate some brownies and I had a cut up cucumber. That is so wrong in every way.
Bill just got home and I made him hide his brownies.
Brianna was so funny. She broke my whisk and then dropped side of pot into dish she was pouring mix into.
She has also taken over for her mother and now does more housework.

and of course she always finds time to text.

And silly Abigail

Ok I am still doing good with eating. Not getting into brownies was not easy. Bill now has his hidden so I am safe.
We are watching Lars and the Real Girl. So far very strange and weird.

    And you were right there to catch Brianna's photo when she broke the whisk and dropped the pan, lol.
Good pictures Eleni!
It sure doesn't seem right when they are eating brownies and you are chomping on a cucumber ... pretend it is a candy bar, lol.
I'm glad you're still doing good Eleni, my best wishes go out to you dear friend!

  Hi Eleni.....
Good for YOU!!!!! I am not so sure that I could have been that close to a Brownie and still stuck with the cucumber. I think that I need to come down to your house and meet your friend so that she can do for me what she has done for you. You do know though, that it isn't just the treatment. YOU are strong.

Brianna is so cute. She could definitely be a model!!!

And you know how I feel about Abigail. I may have to put that picture on the refrigerator too.

Stay with Lars and The Real Girl. It is a strange little movie, but the message is so strong. It has turned out to be one of our favorites. Ken REALLY liked it. I really like Ryan Gosling.

I am still doing well with eating. tracking calories everyday and have been below my low number every day. And I am not starving. I can't stand that empty stomach feeling. making sure I eat healthy and stuff that will fill me up.
Watching BL and do not like that they are bringing back a bunch to compete for 3rd place.Not fair to kid that made 3rd place. He now has to compete against 7 that are coming back. Some of ones coming back may knock him out. Not fair.
The mouse is back.This time it was right outside my window. I was not happy. Bill brought home poison. When he went out to feel good corner to put poison where Roxy can't get to it the big mouse ran right by his foot. My bigger concern is that it is so fat I am afraid it is going to have more.
The baby eagles are getting so big. I am also watching a falcon nest that has a beautiful blue falcon that is sitting on 4 eggs.
You are probably tired of my butterfly pictures.They are new ones each time but they tend to look alike. These were taken today

For most of his life my father was a deep sea fisherman.He would go way out into Gulf of mexico and be gone 10+ days. But his last years he went back to hook sponging.Which means he didn't dive.He gathered sponge with a rake like device with very long handle. As a young boy in Greece he free dived.Meaning they just held their breath. This is what sponge look like when cleaned and ready for sale.

And Landon

    I disagree. The BL is a TV show. To keep it interesting for viewers, the producers have a right to do any switchups they want. Some years they have people vote for who is the 3rd person. This year's contestants were the biggest bunch of whiny crybabies I have ever seen. They voted off people they didn't like rather than who needed to be there. A couple quit rather than giving people a chance to come back. Did these people never watch the show before? If I was one of the people sent home, I would love a chance to get back in the game. I think that Mike who was sent home the second week and lost 100 lbs. deserved a chance to try and come back. Also Chism because he happened to get stuck on a team that didn't want to break up the people who had been together. He certainly needed to stay.
Jeremy showed a bad attitude. He was blessed by getting to stay on the ranch as long as he did. I personally think when he does go home he will put all the weight back on because he will have to deal with real life as will his sister Conda.
I loved the butterflies emoticon

Mouse? EEK!
I never tire of looking at the beautiful butterflies, they are one of God's delicate creatures and so nice to see.

That's very interesting about your father and the sponges! He must have enjoyed being on the water so much!

    that is not fair bringing back others. you are doing wonderful with eating. i seen a mouse in the factory today they are a few in there because of the seeds.i love your pictures of butterflies because i don,t see them here much.i been seeing alot of gold finches at my bird feeder this one was calling his mate or others because i felled it for them. there was once i seen a male gold finch either give the female a seed or he kissed her i thought it was sweet. on weekend i went to Zeller,s i got a few books one was garden secrets for attracting birds with nice big pictures of the birds and about them.the other is Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles quick crops for small spaces it,s by Jane Courtier and the other was byRachael Lanicci.they are regular 18.00 dollar books i got it for 10.99 each. so i was happy.well that is it for now take care keep up the eating right. hugs

    Where was your Dad from in Greece? We lived there for 2 1/2 years. In Kefficia, about 20 miles from Athens proper, between Mt. Parnis and Mt. Pentelli. Beautiful country and we made many friends while we were there.
Congrats on your eating!
Love your pictures!!!

  Hi Eleni.........
emoticon on keeping on track with your eating. I can hear your happiness in your blogs and it makes me happy to hear it. I am so glad that you are doing so well and will continue to wish you this success on a daily basis.

Our butterflies are back!!!!! I saw the first one today.

How old was your Dad when he came to America. My best friend in college was a boy whose Dad was from Greece. He came to America for 2 years and missed Greece so much that he left my friend and his mother and returned home. It does look like a beautiful country. Have you ever been there?

Must close and try to get to bed earlier tonight. My Mom and I shopped all day and I am pooped!!!

Beautiful Day

Monday, April 23, 2012

It has been a very pretty sunny day.
I am still doing good with eating. Real good in fact. I did have a little something after supper but only 80 calories. I was still thrilled.
Here are a few pics
Here is hibiscus my niece gave me.

Don't usually see butterflies in tree but this one stayed on limb a long time. To the left you can see bamboo coming back.Bill needs to trim it back.

This is some kind of moth

Monarch in garden

Have a great day. I am doing good.
