The swallowtail butterfly came back and stayed for pictures. The hummingbird came back too but was jumping all over the place. Nice thing was it was first time Bill saw hummingbird. He thought it was so kewl.And he saw the swallowtail butterfly which is one of his favorites. I got several pics of butterfly.
We also got our eyes checked and are getting new glasses.They gave us the buy one get one free.We saved $600. That was a big surprise.
I can't pick a favorite so here are a bunch of butterfly
Landon decided his mom needed a special bandaid so he put a panty liner on her foot
Seemed to be a lot of activity outside my window today. Of course the hummingbird was the best. I don't know if it was same one but there was one out there twice.About an hour apart. It was in butterfly garden.Both visits were longer than before but it just kept moving around so much it is hard to get a picture. Out of probably a dozen I took I ended up with 4.
Then I had a beautiful black swallowtail butterfly come by 3 times but only stopped for a second.No way I could get a pic.Next time maybe it will stay longer.Also had birds flying in and out.
But hummingbird was best treat.
This is from first visit around 10 am.
And this was at 11 am. It is probably the same one but I don't know
I have a separate little garden that has all hummingbird plants but they like the Mexican petunia for some reason. I am not sure what the other plant is .
I wasted 300 calories today on some chips.I could have had a lot more of something for 300 cal. Now i have to come up with what I will eat for supper.
I am thinking of cheese sandwich with low fat clam chowder with a few extra potatoes thrown in.(low fat sharp cheddar by Bordens now makes a good one) ( I was using Krafts at 25 cal a slice but this tastes much better and is only 30 calories a slice)Just checked and that will be 471 calories which puts me at 1200 cals. I didn't want to go over that but maybe some cut up cucumber and tomatoes later won't make it go much higher so I will still be good.
This is Bill's night for Domino's mac and cheese. I was going to save enough calories so I could get a small thin crust pizza. Now I will wait and get a one slice at place we like to go to lunch maybe tomorrow after we get our eyes checked and new glasses picked out.
Brianna came and did her chores today. Poor thing lost her 2nd hamster to her dogs. No more hamsters. She hasn't found body yet but told mother she did so her mom wouldn't freak out. Hope she finds it before her mom gets home.Hope her mom doesn't read this.I doubt she remembers how to find my blogs.
Ok Hope you had a good day. Saw this on facebook and liked it.
It is such a pain to track calories but I do it anyway. I wanted to fix something different and thought chili sounded good. In the past I always ended up with too many calories when I made one pot. So I made separate pots of it. My entire pot is 370 cal. Bills is much more.Just the chili beans were 110 per 1/2 cup. So I just used 1/4 cup and rest went in Bill's. The only difference is mine has less of most things.I used some beef broth to make mine look like more without a lot of calories. Only problem is Bill will never eat all his so have to decide what to do with what he doesn't eat. maybe lock it in little fridge and he can have it for lunch one day.Can not put it in main fridge as I know I will get in it. I can not be trusted.Bill started leaving little fridge unlocked and I started getting into it.
Just finished supper and the chili turned out good.
Got some pics to share. some of cactus with more blooms,little orchid is still blooming with a few more buds to go,with a couple other flowers and pot with seeds Patti sent me.
New leaves and buds on rose bush.
I missed getting a pic of a beautiful male cardinal but got this. This is a juvenile cardinal
I had several decent days last week but not so great the last two days. I have taken 2 naps both days.
Did well with eating yesterday and good so far.
Nothing much going on.Watching "Unforgetable" that I taped.
Hope your day went well
