Remember, the only thing you have complete control over is your attitude. You alone are responsible for making yourself happy. Do not depend on others to keep you smiling and positive. Choose to be optimistic. Avoid complaining, especially when the things you are complaining about canít be avoided or changed.

    I had a bad day and was a being bratty. I should print that and post it in my cubicle. Right now at work I have a HORRIBLE attitude. A person that is lazy and doesn't do their job well got recognized for going the "extra mile" for the company picnic and got a $100 bonus. It was a shock because she doesn't do anything else. GGRRR!!

    Thanks for reminding us that it is all about attitude.
Ted is no better and I spent Friday in the ER! Gastroenteritis and they discovered I am anemic! I slept the rest of the week end! Not my favorite way to spend a weekend, but it could have been worse!
Thanks for all your encouraging words. You are a blessing!!!

Quiet Sunday

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Started to do this earlier but got a case of pity potty . Started missing all the things I can no longer do.Like go for long drive with hubby or walk on beach. But I am fine now.
Bill picked up 2 tomato plants for me to play with. This is not right time but I will do more in late August and early Sept.
Here are some cherries I tried this week.I never had them before
I also tried a mango again.I didn't care for it.It was sweet with an almost woodsy taste to it.
And here is another coneflower that is blooming. I do much better with plants than I do veggies.
No rain so far.Just hot sun.
Well Bill is waiting to watch a movie he picked up yesterday. Have done good with eating so far.

    Yum! I love mangos, but they are too hard to cut up so we don't get them often. You'd like them in a smoothie or yogurt I bet!
It's good that you try new never know when you'll find a new favorite. This week was the first for us finding good things at the farmer's market. Can't wait to eat fresh local fruit again!!!!

    I really like those flowers. They look like a daisy. Unlike you, I'm HORRIBLE with flowers. I took over my friends plant at work when she was laid off and amazingly enough it's growing!! My plants at home are still alive but my family and I can't seem to remember to water them. We'll see if they last the rest of summer.

I like mango's but not a big fan of cherries. I like the maraschino cherries on my sundaes though. LOL Once every few years I'll get a taste for cherries and I'll buy them but never end up finishing them. Do those cherries taste like bing cherries or do they have a different taste?

Yeah for you for doing good with eating so far. I've been bad this weekend. Tomorrow is a new day!

SUNNY332 7/12/2009 6:25PM

    That flower is absolutely beautiful! Also, I picked up some of those Cherries too and they are awesome. I think I like them as well as Bing Cherries.

Keep the faith. BTW - see if you can find a place that will give your tomato plants sun in the morning a shade during the warmest part of the day. That might help.

Take care, Sunny

Good News Video

Saturday, July 11, 2009

I wasn't planning on making a second video today but had to share my good news.Needless to say we were both very happy. Neither of us even thought to look behind the front seats as I never put it there.It is always up front next to passenger seat. So a not so great day is turning out good. Hubby is very happy now as he was more upset than I was. So I say good day for now. Have a great weekend.

    I am happy you found your cane. Little things sometimes are more important then Big things. Just because we never know what is really Little and how big Big really is.

When I immigrated from my country there were a lot of "Little" things that were left behind. We took what we thought was must important. Now I do miss my little things. It is my life, and it is not so little.

I am glad you found your cane. Once I lost my dictionary. I left it in med office where I was with my patient. I even did not try to find it, I was sure it is over. Nobody need it, so it would be put on thrush bag, as I thought. Next time when my lady had an appointment to this office I saw my book on the front deck. I asked receptionist and she said someone lost it in office. It was my book dictionary, old, already not in good condition. Two my boys and myself took first English lessons with it. I do not use it right now, I do have electronic dictionary, but I am glad I do have it on my book shelf.

You have a great weekend now and I hope you can go 48 hours without rain. No rain for us today and I hope there will be none tomorrow.

God bless,

It is just one of those things. See you later

Bill sure has many talents being able to fix the porch up for you. What a wonderful man you have there.

Well want to go watch your other video so I better run as I'm getting tired. But need to wait up until daughter gets home. Plan on sleeping until the last minute I can in the morn before getting ready for church.

    Oh, you're special too Eleni!!! It's so true, we're so hard on ourselves. Speaking of being hard on ourselves, you're not a wanna be artist, you ARE an artist!!

I can't believe how swollen you still are!! It makes your boob look like mine. LOL!! By the way, my husband said my boobs don't always look that huge. He said it might've been the shirt and the camera angle. I sure hope so!!

Thanks for the props but I don't think I'm good at making videos, I just like to talk. Hee, hee, hee.

Rainy Day

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I am getting tired of rain. It is another dreary day.AT least yesterday the sun was shining for part of the day.
Haven't done much of anything today. I did get a pot of soup made.Used the leftover chicken carcass to make some of the broth. Put 8 cups in freezer and 4 in fridge.
I may make another video tomorrow when my camera man is home. I wish we had a tab on start page that tells everyone that has a video blog.
Well I think I will go take a nap.Weather is perfect for it.

    Hi Eleni, gee that was so good to have a quick chat with you.
Good one making broth with the chicken carcus, yum yum yum.
We have had quite a lot of rain here as well, I too prefer the sun shinny days but the gardens need the goodness from the rain and so I am grateful for what ever we get.

    I enjoy soups made with the carcass of chicken.
And for some reason I really like the turkey carcass at Thanksgiving. Last year might have been an exception due to the fresh herbs I used in the cavity.
We have had rain here the last 3 days and more coming in the AM. DH almost finished spraying the beans for weeds. He only had 1 1/2 rounds left. Since the chemical was not on long enough before it rained that day, he may have to reapply it to some of the beans. Such is the joys of farming.
Hope you enjoyed your nap and the soup. Have a great weekend coming up.

God bless,

    Are the mosquitoes bad by you with all the rain you've been having? The rain hasn't been bad lately but the mosquitoes are horrible and it's so darn chilly. Today is actually nice out but the bugs are so bad. If it's not one thing it's another I guess.

I agree with you about the tab or something about the video blog. I'm curious to see others. I think I've seen one other one besides yours. It is a pain to do it though. It's s time consuming.

I am always a little bit sad in rain. I do love rein, it is good for sleeping.
In NY it is sunny day, but I do not know why today I am sleepy. Maybe it is over the full country.
