No video blog today.Maybe in a few days. It was fun and I will do another. There wasn't time to say all I wanted yesterday.
So I will add a few things here.
1. The digital scale. It really does make a difference and altho they aren't as cheap as the counter weight scales there are some reasonable priced ones out there.Like anything there are some high priced ones that claim to do everything but they don't.But for about $15 to $20 you can get a good plain one that will make counting calories easier.
2, The grabber. I mentioned the grabber. If you drop a lot of stuff like I do or are short it is a wonderful tool. I have one in several places in my house.Kitchen,by my computer,by my recliner,in sewing room and even in bathroom. Don't knock them til you try them. I keep saying I am going to take one to grocery store but haven't yet. LOL
I had a very nice weekend just hanging with my sweetie. I did get to book store and bought 3 books and a magazine. Got a nice book bag free. Also got to Wal-Mart where I got some new kitchen gadgets. Put me in that department and I am having a ball.I told you I am easily amused. Finally got a new lemon squeezer.The one I had broke shortly after I got it.I think this one will last awhile. I also got another grater set.This one had a slicer like a mandolin.I tried it last night and I love it. Got a small grater too. These are the ones with different grates that fit over a plastic container that catches your stuff.
Also got a new cutting board and a few other odds and ends.One thing I didn't get was a magnetic strip to hang knives on.I try to keep my knives sharp and I read it was better to hang them up rather than throw in drawer.
Bill also got me another pair of jean stretch capri pants.
Then we went to a new place for lunch. It was a Caribbean/cuban type food.We split a plate of wings,yellow rice and tomatoes.
We also played a game of Mexican Train domino's.We usually spread it out over two evenings as it takes 13 games to complete game.I won so that was a bonus. So it has been a great weekend.
I am counting all my calories. I have done better than I have in weeks.I did screw up last night but that will happen. But I am putting more effort into losing now. Ok I have rambled enough.Hope you all have a great day.Right now sun is shining brightly out my window.
Oh Here is to show that Bill does still give me roses.
