It has been a quiet day almost. I laid down and took a late afternoon nap. Right after I laid down a rain storm came thru.I didn't pay any attention and fell asleep.Shortly after I got up Bill got home.He started asking me about what I had done today. I thought he was nuts.Then he said look outside.I looked from my chair and saw nothing.Then he said to go in art room and look out. The neighbor's tree that we had a few limbs trimmed off was laying on ground.It had been blown over from ground level. Luckily it fell towards the front corner of their property.I took this picture and it is hard to see but it is larger than it looks.If it had come the other way it would have hit one of our houses.Bill just brought a piece of center of tree in and it is like a water soaked sponge.

And here is another visitor to outside my window Kinda creepy.
I am still counting calories but not doing so well on keeping the calorie count down.It is the night eating that kills me every time.
I did sleep better last night.

    I guess the good Lord helped trim some more off that tree. Good thing it did not do any damage. Is the base of the tree behind the bush on the right side of your photo or still back farther?

Nice snap shot of the dragonfly.

About all we have flying around up here are mosquitoes. I had one bite my wrist yesterday and it swelled to the side of an half dollar.

I have some 4 o'clock bushes growing up here and will need to take some pics when they are in full bloom.

Have a lovly day tomorrow and God bless,
Char

    Hi Eleni.
Bag is beautiful. You always got it in the time.
glad that tree did fall in "right" direction.

About calories and night eating. Do you know I do not do it. I just do not need it anymore. I sleep all night, and there are a lot of noise outside, there is highway under my windows. This is what I do have from TAIslim. I just do not want to eat. It is not the case I do not want to eat at all, but I put on the plate less and less, never eat on night, do not want to eat "wrong" food. I did all of this. Now I do not. I do go to gym club and my body just light. I feel it in this way. I do not lose yet, but what I did lose it is over, I do keep it. I glad I am able to keep what I do have, do not get bigger and bigger. Best.NS.

    I am just amazed at the great pictures you can take of a bug. You can capture it all Eleni. Who else would grab their camera and snap that. Isn't it amazing that the bug could survive and the tree didn't

    I have to admit, like you I can sleep through ANYTHING! Except when dh is not here at night...then I don't sleep at ALL. I am glad you missed the damage and I agree the bug is beautiful. Try Marj's eating jar idea. It might help. I also am/or used to be/ an night eater and know what misery it brings! Good luck with it. You just have to find what works for you...it is different for everyone. Please let me know what you find works for you...it might just work for me!

    It's a beautiful bug. But it is still a bug after all.

Wow, I'm sure glad that tree fell the way that it did. It would have been a heck of an interruption of your nap if it had fallen on your house.

Glad you got the chance to get some rest. And I'm glad you're doing well with the calories. I know how hard that can be.

    I'm going to give you the same idea I gave to TEXASGAL about the late night eating...

We all get cravings....I think you need to start an EATING JAR. Make little notes to yourself of the things that you can do instead of eating those foods that you shouldn't . Put them in the jar. Every time you crave some food that is not good for you ....pull out an alternative from your eating jar. Example....paint your fingernails. You can't eat when your fingernails are wet.....take your dog for a walk or better yet take your neighbors dog for a walk. I'm sure you can come up with some great alternatives. Make sure you put your eating jar in a spot near your temptations.

YOU CAN DO IT MY FRIEND!!
Marj


P.S. I always enjoy your pictures. It's not creepy at all...very fascinating I think!!

    Wow, that must've been some storm you slept through! I'd sleep right through it too though unless of course the kids woke me up. Luckily it didn't hit your house!

Interesting bug. Is it some sort of dragon fly?

I had a bad night last night with my arms going numb and then shoulder and hands hurt terrible until numbness goes away..This went on all night long.I have tried everything.It doesn't matter how I lay it still does it. I have tried using an extra pillow to keep arm elevated some.Nothing seems to help. If I could solved this I would be able to sleep good as knees have gotten much better at night. It is always something.
Oh well On to better things.
I had a surprise visitor outside my window yesterday. I live less than a mile from water and water birds often fly over or stop by. I have seen the big white cranes fly over with huge fish in their mouths.My sister who lives on other side of town has even found dropped fish in her yard.LOL
But here is what flew onto the edge of pool and made himself at home.He kept looking at window and I think he saw himself.My windows look like a mirror on outside.
Here is a small wildflower(weed)
Here is my new plant with blooms
And nightstar asked me what I got at Books a Million.
I got the next book in the twilight serious NewMoon,,
Miss Julia Delivers the Goods the newest book just out by Ann Ross.I have all of her books.
The Reader by Bernard Schlink
and the new Food Network magazine that I have been wanting to see.
And that's it for now.Have a great day

    Hi Eleni. I always read your blogs up side down. Thank you for answer about books. I love twilight serious. There was TV marathon, so I had good time. I do not know about Ann Ross, never read her novels.

I very love you pictures. You always get interesting one. Thanks.

It is very sad that you feel night like this. I did have the same with my arg in the beginning of the year. I had this problem from time when my boy wor born. Then it was out , and in the begining of this year it comes back. But now it is over again. I do sleep and do not have pain. I tried massage. Lev did it for me. Then I put it in worm. I think it helped for awile to help me to go too sleep.

Anyway I read that last night was better.
Hope you will sleep tonight. Best.NS

    I can't believe you bought New Moon! My daughter is begging me to read that series but I have yet to open the cover of the 1st one. I'll give in soon enough. I just started reading an awful book (we go to the library monthly) and I don't think I can ready any more. I like to give books a chance because sometimes they start slow and turn out to be really good. I don't think I can do that with the book I'm reading now.

Your visitor to your backyard was cute! Kinda gross that your sister finds fish in her yard. I would think they would stink, especially with the heat in Florida. Speaking of the heat, could you send some my way? Tomorrow is only going to be in the 60's which is unseasonably cool for Wisconsin.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't sleep well last night. Your doctor can't help you out at all? Hopefully tonight will be a better night for you! emoticon

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.

    I saw the slicer thing with the container underneath. I LOVE it! I think that's going on my Christmas list along with the digital scale.

I started counting my calories again today (why I start at the beginning of Aunt Flo is beyond me!!) and it certainly makes me more aware. I'm going to ask my doctor tomorrow about exercising with my ankle. Hopefully it's good news.

I love it when you share your wealth of knowledge!!!

    What a wonderful blog! I thoroughly enjoyed it! I like gadgets too so totally understand but I also am a box/container freak. I like the container better than the item usually and sometimes actually buy something for what it comes in! You are right about the digital scale...I just got one...far more accurate! emoticon

Video of me counting calories in the kitchen

Sunday, July 05, 2009


I almost didnít post this when I saw how big I looked but that is who I am.I did change my shirt so big upper arms didnít flop too much. I had to rush as we ran out of memory twice. But hopefully I got enough in. I donít have a video recorder just my camera.
I wanted to thank my cyber daughter Robin(Feistymamma) for starting my day off with a smile. Also a big thank you to my hubby who was my camera man.

Preparing snacks is a great idea and I try to go for the more healthier things, but it's not always possible. By the time I get home from work all I want to do sometimes is sit in front of the television and mindlessly snack on what handy at the time.

Today is my Anniversary

Saturday, July 04, 2009


Today is a very special day for me because of three unusual things I did 24 years ago.
1. I left early that morning to go to the local beach to lay out in the sun.It was an overcast day so I didn't stay long. But for some reason I decided to go back later in the day.Something I never did.I would go once and that was it.I never went twice in one day.
2. When I went back I parked in a spot where I had never parked before.
3. When I went to the beach it for for two reasons.To get a tan and to get away from my teenage kids who tormented me on a daily basis. So when I went I never ever spoke to anyone.
So on this day I went back,I parked where I never parked and I spoke to someone.
I noticed Bill when he parked about 2 car lengths away but didn't let on. Then when he got up to leave I said to him "You leaving already?" and he made a beeline to where I was. We agreed to meet in the parking lot of K-Mart later .When I got there he had me a single rose.We went in "my" car to go watch fireworks. I parked in front of a motorcycle shop to watch them and that was 24 years ago. We waited 7 years to get married.
So today is very special for me as it was the day I met the love of my life. I am so blessed to have this loving caring man in my life.Many men can say they love you but Bill's actions every day prove how much he loves me.And as an added bonus we like each other and always enjoy being together.. When I left my first husband I vowed I would never settle for less than the best.I just never dreamed there was anyone out there that would be as good to me as Bill has been. I joke that Bill is my reward for surviving my first marriage.He is as close to a perfect husband as can be had. He can be a pain some times but rarely.
So as we celebrate this great day in history I also am reminded how grateful I am to have a man like Bill in my life.
Happy 4th of July to you all. May you have a wonderful day with your family and friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon

So tell me, do the two of you go back and revisit that spot on the beach? It would really be sweet if he'd drive you to the Kmart store and get you a single rose every year.

You have a great day
