Bill and I had a terrible time sleeping last night. Both were worried about our gand daughter and her mother. Got up early and eating is terrible.
Things are better for GD today and she received her financial aid for school today so she is in a better mood. Her homelife is terrible and nothing we can do.I can't say anything to her mom as she will take it out on her. She knows she can come her or call her GP to come get her at anytime. I am thru asking my daughter anything or commenting on what she is doing.She just lies to me anyway and I am tired of it.
I did have a treat today. It did not stop but had a small hummingbird fly by window. I took some pics of butterfly solar last night. Only blue turned out good. But it changes colors. Kinda like those boxed lights years ago that changed colors.
First is what it looks like in day time.
As most of you know most of my pictures are taken right here in this chair thru a window. This time of day it is hard to get a clear picture plus it is overcast with dark clouds. It took me a second or two to realize what I was seeing. Almost fell out of chair grabbing camera.Then my batteries went out. He is all puffed up trying to dry off. But long red tail is what made me realize what I was looking at. A very young red tailed hawk. I have an adult one that shows up from time to time but first young one.Very cool.
I took him preening himself as long tail shows good
So that was my excitement for the day. Have spent most of day in bed. Just one of those days. I don't have to cook supper as Bill is bowling tonight and he will get something on his way there.
Just had another short rain storm go thru.
Lucky Bill and Roxy sleeping. I laid down but kept thinking about big pot of soup that need to be bagged so I got up. I ended up with 50 cups of soup which I was hoping to get. I liked the bean soup I made last week but wanted less calories per 2 cup bag. This time I just added 3 cans of beans to my normal veggie and it is more than I usually have in calories but less than the bean. The bean was 132 per bag and this is 108 per bag. I know each bag is not exact 108 but average is so that is what number I will use.
My bee balm pot loves this rain.The other pot should bloom soon.
Bill's ginger is starting to turn red. have no idea why it changes color
My big momma orchid that I split into 3 pots had limbs for orchids coming out all over . The 3rd pot doesn't but it is still looking ok.
Due to bad eating for a couple of days i did not lose my gain. But did release 2#. I will have the rest gone next week and maybe more.
Ok Time to start supper.Hope you had a good weekend
My eating last night was the worse in a long time. Threw out rest of what I was stuffing myself on. Back on track for now. I wish this wasn't so hard. I will still lose some of what I gained but not sure how bad last night will hurt me. it had a lot of salt in it.
I always have fresh lemons so decided to make a bottle of lemonade for lunch. It was good. I do it all the time when we go out.
Bill is getting groceries today. Always interesting to see what he brings home.
here is old big bulky Tv and new one.New one was only $300. We needed a shelf to put TV on. Check out what Bill used to hold up shelf. This way the dvd is out where we can keep door underneath closed.
