Quiet Friday

Friday, July 17, 2009

Today has been another quiet day. We were going to grocery store but I wasn't up to it.Hubby's snoring kept me awake last night. But I had things to do around here anyway.
I made another pot of soup which turned out ok.Used up my last fresh veggies. That gives me room in fridge now.
I also redid the thing for my walker that I can carry stuff in. The pockets were too small on it so I took seams apart and repositioned them.
I can see 2 small okra on my okra plant. So far I have only gotten 1 okra emoticon
My green thumb works better with plants so far.
We have a mystery animal digging holes out by Feel Good Corner. Bill thinks it is a stray cat. I haven't seen anything during the day and I am out here a lot.
I did really good on eating today but got messed up a little a supper.I wasn't in mood to cook so Bill ran down to corner and got us a subway.He got the wrong chips for me.Instead of 140 cal it was 480. Dumb me didn't pay attention until it was too late. But That was extra calories I could have done without. I should have noticed the bag was a little bigger.Oh well.I am still way in my range as I had eaten low calories for rest of day.
I am finally on last twilight book Breaking Dawn. Series turned out to be not too bad.
Ok nothing new. Have a great weekend all.

    It is already Sunday. DH & I back from Photo walk. LOL, It was great. So much walking Lev went to Key Food to grab same milk and bread, i camr home. I cannot walk anymore, just to bed.

Eleni, do you like pop corn? I thought it is junk food, but my doctor recommend it to me. It was told it is good for diabetes. Sometimes I use it. It is good to take out, very light, good to replace cookies, not so sweet, and keep stomach full.

Have great weekend. NS

    I can sure identify with the snoring thing last night. And if you were within your calories don't stress about the chips. You were still good. There are no coincidences. emoticon Carol

    Don't fret about the chips. At least it was cake or cupcakes (yep, I'm guilty!!!).

I hope you find out what type of critter is digging holes. Set a humane trap and see if you can catch it. Please be careful when outside, I'd hate to have you or Bill trip because of a hole.

I hope you have a great weekend!!

    Come on my darling friend, pick up your attitute. Boring days are really hard to stay motivated, I know. HOWEVER, smile and the whole world smiles with you.
Trying to hard to achieve our goals, to the point where the effort we put in, becomes a constant struggle and brings nothing positive, maybe Eleni, you need to go back to smaller steps and set smaller goals which will give you the direction in which to grow and build your motivation up again.
You can do this. I know you can. I believe in you.
I am cheering you on.

    I'm having a bad eating day too. I had a cupcake BEFORE dinner. Dinner wasn't all that great and I'm hungry again. YIKES!!

I hope you were able to convince Bill to pay a board game. If so, which one did you play?

I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. :)

Feeling much better this afternoon

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

I am much better this afternoon.My ankle and knee were hurting from gout. I take meds but when it flares up I have to take an extra pill.The pill plus heating pad did good.
I was very sadden to hear that Terri's ( CANBDONE) husband passed away. Poor Terri is devastated I am sure.
We saw the streak of the shuttle a few minutes ago. Not much to see from here except for streak like you see similar to a jet flying.
Not much else going on. I always love seeing the butterfly pics but the butterflies I see out window never stop until today. I finally got a pic.It's not real great but better than nothing.
And ofcourse the birds.
And here is Grandpa's helper

    Sooooo sorry to hear you're dealing with gout!
That's the pits....BUT the best treatment (I'm sure you've gotten this advice already) is drinking cherry juice! It really really works!
Love your pictures!!!

    Hi Eleni, sorry to hear your knee is playing up with the gout. I do believe it is a very nasty disorder to have.
Granpa's little helper is so cute.
yes I did enjoy surprise visit from son, always nice to catch up and have a hug.

    How awful for Terri! I can't even imagine.

I love taking pictures of butterflies. I have pictures on MySpace and maybe Facebook of butterflies. The museum in Milwaukee has a butterfly exhibit that's pretty cool.

The picture of Grandpa and Landon is sweet. Landon has such pretty eyes!

Motivation quote

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

I was thinking about Terri CANBDONE who lost her husband yesterday and I found this.

We all know someone who’s been having a rough time or someone who’s luck seems to always run short. What can you do about it? You can remember that we all have bad days and offer support. Think about how much it means to you when someone offers a shoulder or helping hand when you’re having a bad day. Use that feeling of gratitude to help someone else. Become someone’s inspiration and hope, showing them that it is okay to stumble, offering a hand, and helping them up again

Not anything new to report.
I did do some chair exercises for first time since I had my defib/pacemaker replaced.
Slowly doing better on eating each day.
Just been a quiet day. Watched TV did some sparking,did some reading. I just finished the 2nd vampire book. I am almost 1/2 way thru the 3rd one. I said I wasn't going to read them but once you start you want to see how it ends. It isn't gory or I wouldn't read it.
Ok Lets see what picture I can find for today. I love the blue jays that visit my back yard.

    I love to read vampire books. I do have one on my shelve. It is very powerful book. I did look differently on this books since i finished to read this one. I never read Twilight but I like to watch movies.

I love your bird. There are no birds behind my windows, only cars.

I like you are better with eating. It is very nice. I am good with mine too. But I am not good with gym club. I do not like to go there in Summer when it is too hot. I go to ocean.

    Is it funny that I've seen High School Musical parts 1 and 2 but haven't read Twilight? Lol... anyway, glad you're enjoying the series! I will have to eventually read them, too! I do like a good vampire story, anyway! Did you try a Sit and Be Fit today? Glad you're feeling up to doing some exercise! That's great! emoticon

    Tried reading Twilight at least 3 times. Just couldn't get into it. I'm glad you're enjoying them, though! Sounds like you are gradually recovering and feeling better. Don't go too fast though!

    Wow, you're almost done with the Twilight books. I guess I'm going to have to read them now. I don't know why my daughter wants me to read them, she's told me all about them.
