Short blog with a few pics and some smiles

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Have been very tired today and yesterday. Brianna took pics at picnic but I have to wait til I get my camera back. I went but sat in car and bless their hearts my family came up and stood in heat to see me. I wasn't there long but even that was tiring.Came straight home and went to bed while Bill went to grocery store. Got up and fixed a simple supper and was back in bed by 7:30.Got up at 9 and watched some TV.
Have pretty much done nothing today.
I did try 2 new recipes out. a tomato,basil,cheddar soup and onion turkey joes. Bill didn't like either. He ate the joe sliders and tasted soup.I was surprised as he likes tomato soup and I don't. But I really liked the soup. We were about same on meat.It uses A-1 sauce and he doesn't like that. It was eatable but not good enough to make again.
Here are a few misc pics. Sister A and B and C orchids





C doesn't look so good

Bill's ginger

Desert rose that almost died in front yard but blossomed in back yard


Bill trimmed the mexican sunflowers down,The first one is an after of front one and then a before and after of back one.



misc


Brianna and then a friends daughter Haven.I may have already had this one of Haven

    The pictures are great, as usual, but I wish you were feeling better. Spending too much time in bed is hard on you. I understand why, but hope you are feeling better now.

    When I was in FL the condo we stayed at was right across the street from where Winter is kept. We went and saw her. We had a hard time getting in as all morning it was closed for promotions for the picture.
Your orchids are beautiful. I love Bill's ginger.

  Hi Eleni......
I am so glad to hear that you were able to attend the Birthday Party and I am sure that your family appreciated it that you were there. I hope that you were able to rest up today.
Everytime I see your Big Mama "Children", I marvel at how well they are doing. So many blossoms on such very young plants.........
Both Ken and I are tired today. We had Elizabeth overnight and baby Nola until 10:30 last night. Elizabeth and Nola and their parents all had brunch with us this morning. After they left, we drove about 20 miles North East of us to attend an Art Fair. It was good, but we disciplined ourselves and didn't buy anything. When we returned from that, we went over to my Mom's for supper. Now we are home and I am going to be in bed early tonight!!!

Rebekah came over with Christopher,Kayla and Abigail.Just before they left Abigail's mom showed up. It was nice to see them come but I was tired when they left. Abigail is such a little stinker.She is so funny.

Tomorrow we are suppose to go to a BD party at park but I will just make an appearance and sit in car.Just too hot.

Abigail's mom just sent me a couple of pictures. Abigail is my GGD.

  Hi Eleni........
I hope that you can enjoy the Birthday Party in the Park........even if you have to stay in the car, I am sure your family will love seeing you.
I have BOTH grand-daughters coming at 4 today. Elizabeth will stay over-night and Nola will be picked up by her parents at around 10. She is still nursing, so won't spend the night for awhile yet. It takes BOTH Ken and I to keep up with both of them. My torn rotator cuff limits me in carrying Nola for any length of time. We will be exhausted when they leave, but we do love having them with us.
emoticon for the pictures of Abigail. Her smile makes my day.

Thursday- Soup Day

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Watching the Dolphin Tail movie that was filmed near here.. I hope I got all of it taped.
Yep Got all of it. Turned out to be a cute movie.Most all was filmed in Clearwater but one of early scene shows boy riding by a bunch of boats.That was actually not Clearwater but the docks here in Tarpon.So we were in movie for about 4 seconds. emoticon
I ordered a bunch of books this week. I got the 2 new Castle books for me and Bill.
Then I ordered all but one of Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache books. I thought I had 2 but I must have given one away. So I got I think 7 so I will have a full set. Bill has started on The Cat Who books. Seems strange to see him reading so much. emoticon Will give the Cat who books to Angel after Bill gets finished with them.
I still have a lot of books on my son's old Kindle but I really like having a book in my hands.I am reading Barbara Walters book Audition. It is actually very interesting.
I am suppose to go to grandsons BD party Saturday but there is no way I can get out in heat.Bill says I have to go and I can stay in car and they can come to it. I never go to anything anymore. It is either too hot or too many people in small space. Can't breathe in heat and too many people increases chance of someone being sick. And if I get sick I will end up in hospital.
Soup is made and bagged and in freezer. Bill has been helping me and it makes it much easier. I have a list of what cans I need and he gets all that and big pot down.Going to have to add can beans to list. Using beans means more calories but this time I only used 3 cans. I ended up with each bag of 2 cups coming to 90 calories. But I also ended up with 2 quarts of just broth in addition to 25 bags. I figured calories on the bags. He also helps bag it. After I filled bag it he seals it.
So soup is done for awhile. It is also time to make up meds again. That I really hate.

    Today was soup day at our house too. Jim had started the meat last night in the crockpot and today added the veggies. It is good. Happy you are enjoying the books. I've been reading a bit too, but it's all about trying to learn to paint better.

  Hi Eleni..........
Ken and I took my Mom to Dolphin Tale and we all liked it. I am going to rent it to watch with Elizabeth and will have to watch for the boy riding by the boats. When Ken and I were in Oregon, we went to several film sites in Astoria. It was fun to actually be where the filming took place.
Have you read the Hunger Games books? I have heard that they are very good, but have not read them yet. I did read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series and really liked it.
I spent most of yesterday and this morning getting ready for Nola to spend the night. We had put the crib and everything related to a "Baby" away (Elizabeth is 5), so I cleaned the room and Ken brought the crib up and washed it and painted it. I have the bedding all washed and will make it up tomorrow morning. She is 3 months old and is still being nursed, so I hope that she will accept the bottle tomorrow night.
I have to admit that little ones make me nervous. I feel much more comfortable around them when they can communicate what they want or need.
Must close for supper.
Take care.

    My Mom doesn't go anywhere anymore for the same reason. She has end stage COPD and at this point an infection could potentially kill her. I could go on and on but it's boring to other people. It's fun to read about you making soup.

Soups on! lol I love homemade too and you're fortunate to have so much help from Bill. Did you bag all that extra broth? It would be good for next time. I love beans in my soup, it is filling and so good for us!

    It's kinda cool when you recognize your town in a movie! I have a copy of Running Cool (one of Dee Dee Phifer's first movies) - It was shot here in Sanford in the early 1990's and a lot of my friends are in it (It's a biker movie...), and there are so many places that are still recognizable here. One scene was filmed at Mullet Lake Park! Way cool! emoticon

Nothing new going on here. Most days are the same. I feel bad putting pictures that are the same looking. They are different ones but look the same.
This is a moth that looks cool.It is a mall skipper I think
