Thursday warning snake picture

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I did much better with eating yesterday. So far not bad but still a lot of time left in day. Worrying so much about Angel is not helping.Found out she has been in contact with him and not working her job as she should. On top of that now Brianna is now having a bad bladder / kidney infection.
Bill is working on a long list of honey-do's he made.
It is getting so hot here.
My black snake is back.

It is nap time

    The snake is harmless, right? And it's suppose to do some good in the garden, so the other critters won't mind sharing with it!
Love the little squirrel!
And near fell off the couch laughing when I read your cartoon at the last!
Thank you for all!

    Snakes are suppose to be beneficial to the garden, right? But why do they have to be so creepy?!
I'm sorry that Angel is causing you so much stress. When will it ever end!
I'll have you in my prayers.
I hope Brianna feels better ASAP.

  Hi Eleni........
I am glad to hear that your eating is better. You are like me.........if there is a lot of stress going on around me, I eat more than I should.
Does Brianna drink a lot of water? If not, she should make it a point to drink at least 8 glasses/day. I have also found that taking a Cranberry Supplement daily helps. She could get them at Walmart or Health Stores. I know exactly what she is going through. They are so painful and exhausting!
I thought of you today when I was working in my East garden. I had a butterfly that landed on my arm several times and would just sit there while I was pulling weeds. I thought that when I moved, it would fly away, but it didn't.
I hope things get better for April soon. I am sure that the stress is getting to Brianna too.
Take care.

    I thought about you and your snake today too!! I got goosebumps just thinking about it.

Angel will get through this. It must be hard to sit back and let it happen. I hope she finds her way soon.

I heard kidney infections really hurt. Poor kiddo.

    Sorry I have been alone so long, I can't imagine sharing my home with anyone! Most of us are not as lucky as you are with Bill.
P.S. I rather have the black snake in the garden then the one in a couple day's earlier blog.

My grand daughter Brianna was a real hero yesterday

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I know it isn't morning but I like this

She may have saved a lady's life.The car in front of her started rolling backwards and then woman got out clutching her chest.Brianna jumped out of her car and helped lady off road and called 911.
Been quiet here. Haven't heard from Angel and good that is best, It is so upsetting to see her so upset.
I am determined to get back to eating the way I should. I had a light lunch and have fresh cauliflower and corn in steamer. Bill will pick up some chicken to go with it.
I had a large dark swallowtail buzz thru yard but didn't stay long enough to get a picture.
Here is the hibiscus that was just buds yesterday

    Brianna is a true gem Eleni. Praying for Angel and do know what a trial our children can be. Once they are grown, all we can do is watch--can't make their decisions or force ours on them.

Beautiful Hibiscus Eleni and I love the color of it! Thanks for sharing!

  Hi Eleni..........
GOOD FOR BRIANNA!!! I taught a Health Careers Course to Seniors in High School and had students from 5 different schools. The class was held at a local Nursing Home. I team taught the class with a Registered Nurse. She taught the CNA classes and also CPR and I taught the body physiology. It was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had in teaching. Even if the graduating Seniors NEVER went into a health career, they always had the information to use in their own lives and the lives of their families. The third year of teaching the class, we had a girl who saved her Uncle's life. She was at a family reunion when her uncle complained of chest pains and almost passed out. She called 911 and while waiting for the ambulance to come, she did chest compressions until the para-medics could take over. The doctor told her later that her quick thinking saved her Uncle's life. He had had a massive heart attack and wouldn't have lasted until the ambulance arrived without her help. Brianna should be very proud. I hope that someone does let her know how everything turned out.
It sounds like you are eating very healthy to me. emoticon

Another Do Nothing Day

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Haven't done much today. But we know I rarely do anyway.
Am not doing well with eating.Keep trying but then night time comes.
Angel is not doing well.
Here are a few pics. The hibiscus was in the shade so pic is a little cloudy. It has several buds that will bloom soon.


Patti- I didn't realize how much better this plant did.

I did not take these pics. My grand daughter did at a local park

    My heart goes out to Angel. It is so hard on us when our kids go through a rough time.
I am starting a new streak of giving myself a star on the monthly calendar of my small dayminder every time I don't snack at night. Sometimes I do better with visual aids. LOL

    Abigail is a doll. It looks like her hair is getting lighter. Must be that Florida sun.

Beautiful flowers!!! I haven't planted a darn thing. That's OK, I'd kill it anyway.

Separation/break-ups are difficult. I think it will take lots of time for Angel to recover.

  Hi Eleni.......
It will take time with Angel as it sounds like she really loved him. All you can do is love her. I will keep her in my prayers. I am sure that she is thankful to have Brianna close by too.

If you had just 1 Cleome plant in that pot, it could grow to over 5' tall. I have so many growing in several areas right now. When they begin to bloom, I will send you some pictures.

Elizabeth will love the picture of the little alligator and I LOVE the pictures of Abigail. What a little sweetheart.

Take care and try not to be too is easier to eat when you are sad. You have to be strong in all areas right now. If it helps, call your friend Debbie.

I wish I could be of more help.

Not great day

Monday, June 11, 2012

I know it isn't morning but I liked this

Angel is not doing well. Spent most of day just crying. She is a mess mentally and financely . I can help with some money but she has to do the rest. All her friends are trying to convince her it is his loss. Her being madly in love doesn't help.

And ofcourse when it rains it pours. Brianna's car won't run and the house AC quit today.
So I am very worried about her. Sorry for the downer blog.
On lighter side.Bill moved some of my plants around so I could see them better. He has back room almost all done and it looks great.

I am so sorry to hear of Angel's problems............I will put her on my prayer list. It does seem that when one thing goes wrong for someone, you can count on there being more to follow. She had been doing so well........I hope this doesn't get her too down.

Ken finally agreed to go to a Hearing Aid Specialist today. He really got a thorough exam (it took 2 hours) and the hearing aids seemed to help with his severe tinitus. They are VERY COSTLY though, so he is going to do some comparison shopping.

Must hit the hay early tonight as I have to be up by 6AM to head for the American Girl Warehouse.

You must be going crazy with your AC broken. Glad bill moved some plants around for you.

Sorry to hear Brianna's car is not working.

What a day for you. I will send some good luck you way. Not today though because i have had a bad day too. Maybe it is just in the air today for things to go badly. i am hoping for good luck tomorrow and ill send some your way!

Lazy Day

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Been a lazy day for me. Bill went to grocery store alone.I just didn't feel like it.I
have to really try not to stress too much in coming days. My Angel's boyfriend moved out today. I was afraid he was too good to be true. It was almost already hard for Angel to trust a man and this will really do it. It will be rough for her for awhile. He went to getting another place together and getting married to I can't live with you but I want to still date. I hope she gets thru this without anything bad happening. It will be rough for Brianna too. Better he did it now than later.
Scale was way down today so most of fluid is gone and I did better with calories today.
