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.
new rose bloom.Picture of two show one from the other day on right
What a horrible day for Colorado last night. 12 dead and 59 injured as of now. 10 of the dead are still in theater. Police is giving first broadcast. Several of injured are critical. This area is planning extra security today.
Our TV in living room has been slowly dying.It is 9 years old. So Bill went to Walmart and got a new flatscreen. I was very surprised at how cheap it was. We have swapped the tv's out and new one was very easy to set up and get dvd player to work. Will have to get use to a more rectangle screen. Have noticed color isn't as good if viewed from side. Bill said he bet sports would look great on it.I told him it was too bad he would never find out. Our standing joke is that sports only plays back here.
I finally got some pictures of the black swallowtail butterfly and almost got one of yellow one but I wasn't fast enough
Here is butterfly solar light that one of Bill's customers sent me.
And a blue jay that stopped by .He has a peanut in last pic
The crock pot meal was great.Bill's was a little dry as his had breast meat and mine was thighs. Just put your stuff in crock pot and top with cream of chicken soup.Then put dry onion soup mix on top. I use cream soups a lot in crock pot but never added dry onion soup on top. Next time I will have to add some broth to Bill's .
One thing about getting my hair cut is it forces me out of the house. My hair is getting very thin in the front on top. I think it is all the meds I take. As thick as my hair has been for most of my life I never expected it to start thinning. If it gets too bad I might try a bald head.
Not a great pic but I never take good pics.
My scale is going down and unless I do something real stupid I should be back down from that 2 week gain.
Butterflies were back today with the sunshine. The large black swallowtail just flew by just to show off.Doesn't stop long enough for pic. But I will get him one day.
Here are a few I took this morning.The red plant is one that loves lots of
water.I have 3 of them in various shades. Without rain they start drooping
Our TV in living room is dying so Bill is going to look at new ones this weekend.
Enjoy your weekend
I know we always need rain and some of you need it badly. But it sure seems like we are having way too much. It started last night and has been non stop except for a couple of hours. At least it is not all storm.Right now it is a gentle rain.
Poor Roxy hasn't been out since this morning. She refuses to go outside. She will go when Bill gets here as he will stand out in rain with her. I am not standing out in the rain.
My eating is better but needs to be much better. I am going to try to listen to my tape twice a day. That should help. I may see about getting another so I can swap them out. But right now I just want my dear friend to help Angel. That comes first.
I taped Rachael Ray while I took a nap. I usually skip thru a lot of it.She had a great section on going thru the grocery store. I knew most of what she said but did learn a few new things. Susan Lucci is on now. Can't believe she was on the soaps for 41 years. She is so young looking. She always seems very nice when she is on talk shows.
Here are some rainy day pics.
This was this morning
This was just a couple of minutes ago.Can't believe how much it bloomed.
