I did sleep a little better. One of you suggested valerian root to help me sleep. I called my heart doc today to get his ok. I take so many meds that I do not even take over the counter anything without checking first.I did look on internet and it says that it is suppose to aid sleeping.
I made my own pasta sauce today and checked my calories. One can italian stye tomates,with 1 small can tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of tomato paste with spices makes almost 1 quart after using immersion blender. Mine is 30 cal per half cup versas 80 per half cup bertoli sauce. Very happy with that.
Ok I need to go start supper so I will leave you with these backyard pic. The blue jay had a big peanut in his mouth at first. The one hibiscus is different one on same bush as the other day.The other is my other huge bloom bush
We are watching the movie Mirror Mirror. Very different.Funny so far. Looking for the 2 dwarfs from Pit Boss that are in movie.
It has been a warm day.It has been in the low 80's.
Nothing much going on. Going to make Bill some beef,onions and peppers. One of his favorites.
Felicia posted these pictures of Abigail dressing herself.
Time for me to start supper.
Hope you had a good day.
Today has been better. Watching what I drink and only drinking diet ginger ale which seems to help.
I wanted to share a few pics. This is my huge hibiscus and my variegated orchid that has been in bloom for months.
And here is Roxy. Since Bill put tile down she hasn't been able to sit on floor between my legs as she would slide all over the place. I laid a towel on floor and she loved it.Got her ears rubbed and then laid down and took nap. She was a happy camper.
Next door there is a large growling big dog. Roxy and him were running back and forth across fence. When his owner called him in she stood up on fence. Like she was saying "Come back and play growling" She doesn't usually do that.
Am making baked fries and baked fish tonight. Doing it the way I have seen on food network. I usually just put it on non stick foil. This time I have them on a rack.Suppose to brown better on both sides.Will see if it makes any difference.
So far still enjoy having Bill home.
Hope your day went well.Need to go check supper
Wasn't going to blog but had to show Landon with his big boy haircut. And Abigail with her moms high heels.
I thought it funny that Landon's daddy is one that didn't want to cut his hair. He looks like a boy now. And Abigail has such a happy smile
Bill cut the legs on stool he got me so now it isn't too high. I have a stool in bathroom,kitchen and utility room.Seat broke on one.
Also cut a hanger down and I hot glued it together. Will hang it on cabinet door when cooking for calorie list or recipe. Tried to get a baby hanger but Felicia didn't have any.This will work good
Today is grocery day and Bill just got back with them. Wasn't a big list for once.
Bill's cabbage soup is so simple. it is just cabbage,potatoes,little onion and carrots(can use chunks or the straw kind or sliced) some green beans, small piece of ham chopped up. cooked in either water or chicken broth. He used chicken broth. I make same thing but don't always use any meat. If I do it is just a couple of pieces of bacon. I put a few spices in mine. It is good but doesn't stick to my ribs so to speak and I get hungry again. Same thing happens with chinese food.
Stomach is much better . I use milk for first pills of the day and drinking diet ginger ale. Plus a yogurt during the day. Bill got some 1% milk today. Can have more milk for less calories. I also have 2 oz orange juice and 1/2 banana for breakfast.
Have a good Bill story I forgot to tell you about. I mentioned I wanted to boil some eggs so he got it going. They started boiling just when Rebekah came with Abigail to pick up Kayla. After awhile they heard a popping noise. Bill went to kitchen to look around. Yep eggs were out of water and popping. And yes I did tease him but not long. I admitted I had done it before and probably everyone that cooks has at some time. I made some the other day. I use the timer on my phone. He was relying on remembering. Lots of luck there.
Not much going on.It is nap time for me.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Oh Still tracking calories. Went over yesterday but not bad.Still much less than I was.
I am not going to walmart. Just think this is cute
