Rainy Sunday

Sunday, March 29, 2009

And final
Poor Bill worked so hard for me.That fountain was very heavy.
It is starting to rain again and we do need it.It was rainy and stormy all night.But no real hard rain.This solfter rain is better so it will soak in ground.We are so dry here.
I did not sleep well again last night.Well I did and I didn't.I slept in one hour increments. I went to bed real early for me.Before nine.Hubby went in other room when he went to bed so I could sleep which was so sweet. But my knees and arms woke me up every hour. I don't know what the deal is with arms going numb. I will try a different pillow. So I got sleep but just not all at once.
Ok I better go exercise or rain will be making me lazy and sleepy.

    The corner looks great. You and Bill are doing a good job. I hope you get some sleep tonight, in more than one hour increments.

    Garden is looking beutiful Eleni. Well done Bill, what a treasure you are.
I often wake in the night and my fingers or arms are quite often numb, I think it is the way I lie, cutting off circulation.hugs and take care for now.

Sorry that you're still having problems sleeping. Can the doctor recommend anything to help?

    Your fountain is beautiful. We have rain here today too, today is a lazy day for me, can't walk outside and if I go to a store, I will get exercise, but other than that just playing on computer and reading. I should be cleaning since its raining outside, but just want to read. Have a great day and get some rest. Hopefully a new pillow will do the trick. Your yard is so pretty, enjoy it.

Take care,

Weigh in day

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Weigh in was good.Lost 6.6# Not all the loss was true loss as part of gain last week was fluid.But I have been keeping calories in range and exercising so some of loss is real.I am hoping to get below 280 next week.
I am so tired today.I did not sleep well at all.One of my bad nights.I think I may have gotten a total of 3 hours. I will need a nap today.
I am going to make one of my pots of soup and bag it up shortly. Another big mess in kitchen.LOL.I drop stuff all over the floor when I am making soup. I never claimed to be neat.
Bill is working a half day today but he is not bowling tomorrow. He is going to work on my Feel Good Corner.I have been given some good names to think about. I am leaning toward Sophia for the girl and either Charmaine or Charmy for cat.But am wanting to see if I get some more ideas. I just realized I never named the two small kissing fairy's.I may just call them the lovers.
I appreciate people thinking I have a nice back yard but I don't.Only the one corner emoticon If you could see this side of the corner you would see a lot of sand and little grass.
Ok I better go get started on soup.

    6.6 pounds is awesome!!! There is a reason we're doing what we're doing! Thanks for reminding me of that!

I tend to drop things on the floor too when I'm cooking. I actually did it tonight. I dropped a whole potato on the ground. Thanks goodness I got it before the dogs did! When I drop or spill things on the floor the dogs usually get to it before I can.

    Gee Eleni, you are doing wonderful with your goals. Keep it up cos before you know it you will get to your goal weight,
I love your new statue, I don't know how i missed it, however I did.
My names for te duo would be Aroha for the little girl and cuddles for the cat.
Aroha =Aroha is a Maori term that goes back to Waitaha times. It might be translated as "unconditional love", and it stands for the utmost respect for fellow humans. It is a name given to many Children as well.

Lunch with a Spark Pal

Friday, March 27, 2009

Today I had lunch with MDMNINA (Deborah) of my Grandma's On the Lose team and her husband.It was good company and good conversation.

PS Deborah Tell your hubby I got some of the Everglades seasoning.There were two that said the same thing but I thought he said to get the green one so I did. Smells like it has a lot of sage in it. Remind me again what all he uses it on.
I did good eating. Or tried to anyway. So tonight was every man for himself.So I made some low cal soup and salad.
I also got 2 big bunches of brocolli at store and decided to freeze it for soups. I even froze a little cabbage too. I had too much produce for crispers so that took care of part of it. Kitchen looks like a hurricane went thru it tho. LOL
Ok Here is a picture of sister and Deborah
Second Picture is Deborah and her hubby.

Ok I will have to catch up with threads etc later or maybe in the morning.This was a big day for me and I am very tired.

Want to help me name my new statue

Friday, March 27, 2009

Ok Here is a peek at the statue that is going out to keep Delilah & Tinkerbell company. I am looking for suggestions for names for the little girl and the cat. I like unusual names. So do post your ideas of a good name. Bill will put it out at the "Feel Good Corner" tomorrow.

    Love the statue!! You have a wonderful feel good corner. I envy you being able to sit out in the sun! We woke up to snow this AM. I am hoping this is our Easter cold spell. The wind has blown all day, it did get up to 50, however the wind feels like it is off the north pole! Burrrrr! I went out to get some things I had left in the car and almost froze! We are supposed to freeze again tonight! I'm so ready for spring!!!!
The cat seems to be saying, "They said What?" ha! Love it!!!

    For the girl - Lirienne meaning one who reads aloud
For the cat - Felina meaning cat-like
