Just want to get my blog done as I have to make up my meds tonight and that takes a couple of hours to do.
Got my eye exam and have new glasses coming.I wanted a new look and my new ones are different. I couldn't believe how expensive they were. It will be at least a week before they are ready.
I have done very good with eating today.The night is still young but I am expecting to end it well within my calorie range.
We did stop at grocery store for just a few things.Mainly my tomatoes.But I love Christmas decorations and I got another little tree.This is a live tiny tree. I need to see if I can find a couple of colored bulbs to hang on it.
I did lose 10# of fluid today.I can tell a big difference.
We are having a cool snap today.I had to wear a light sweater when we went out. I told Bill you guys would boo me if I complained about 50 something degree weather. We are so spoiled here in Florida. I do have heat on but it isn't coming on much. I would die up there with all you guys that are having snow and freezing weather.
My Christmas cactus plants are all about to burst out in bloom. Will take a pic once they bloom in a few days.
Well I better go get started making up my meds for the next 3 weeks.
Stay warm

    I'm not booing, but I am laughing at the idea of 50s being cold. It was 40 degrees here yesterday and I was outside sunning myself. All relative after below zero temps, What a thrill.

I love our Christmas cactus. You reminded me, our only orchid is in bloom. HOW, I'll never know. With these freezing temps and forced air heat, It is a mystery. BUT, how beautiful and how happy it makes us.

Wish i had a camera to share it with you.

Hope you have a great Saturday and enjoy your soup. What kind is it? I love soup.

    Oh Eleni, I just got my eyes checked and new glasses on the way also. They were expensive but we are worth it. I loved my old/new glasses (they were only a year old) but they kept breaking and this time could not be repaired.

Love the little tree you got at the grocery store. I do love Christmas trees.

Take care, my friend, and have a Super Saturday. We have our Church Cantata this evening so will go to dinner with friends and then to the Cantata. Wish you were here to go with me.

Hugs, Sunny

    Your Christmas tree is cute. I was just complaining to Jason that I miss having a real Christmas tree. I love the smell. I haven't seen a real tree that small before. The reindeer is a cute touch.

I can't wait to see the new glasses! I don't update my glasses very often because it's costly. I hardly wear my glasses anyway.

50 degrees sounds chilly for Florida. How chilly does it get there in the winter? My heat is set at 72 degrees and I'm still cold. I don't want to bump it up because then I'll roast at night.

I hope you have a good evening and are able to get some rest.

    I like your Christmas tree. Are you going to plant it outside later?

I can't wait to see your Christmas Cactus, I love that plant.

I' home for the night and glad as it is 4 degrees outside. It went down a little from when I left for Curves until I got back home.

Have a great weekend.

God bless,

    We're warming up a touch this weekend -- low 40s and rain predicted. Yesterday they were saying snow and ice. Rain is much better than ice. I'm putting my little tree up this weekend. Every ornament sparks a memory. I love decorating it. The tree is just under 4' tall so it's pretty easy to handle.

Nothing much going on here.In fact I have done very little today.Bill came home and cleaned up kitchen.He even brought home supper.
I did get the gingerbread train done. I still have a house to do.

Hopefully I will do a better job with the house.
We had a lot of rain today but temps are still nice. I get cold just hearing about all the snow and cold weather some of you are having.
I am going tomorrow to get eye exam and new glasses. I could use same frames but I want new ones.
Bill is getting a nice Christmas present.I am getting him the Total gym that Chuck Norris advertises. It is very expensive but I am getting a restocked one which is much cheaper.He probably won't use it but he wants it.All he does for me he deserves something nice. This is the cheapest one.The elite is way out of my range. Actually this one is too. But Bill is worth it.
Ok thats it folks.My eating stinks. Enough said there
Have a good night

What a great gift for Bill.

Take care.

  Nice train sister.. can you eat it? I bet Bill will use the gym at least for awhile.. As you know walking is my thing. Eating is always a problem for me..You have been doing good. Don't let a few meals take you away from your goal.. You can do it.. Joanne

    I think your train looks fabulous. It sure looks better than mine (nonexistent). Make sure Bill is going to use that thing before you get it. You know how we all are. Its a pretty expensive thing to use for a coat rack. emoticon Isn't it funny how we buy the most expensive coat racks we can find.
I have to run off to the gym to work off that red velvet cheesecake I had last night. emoticon emoticon

    Hi dear one! I think your train looks great! That Chuck Norris gym is an awesome present. I'm thinking I want to change Josh's bedroom into a work out room. I'm not sure what type of equipment to get. I just order SparkPeople's fitness ball, the light exercise straps, the DVD and the pedometer, I also ordered a 10 minute exercise DVD by Coach Nicole..I'm thinking anyone can do 10 minutes of exercise right? Even me! emoticon I really, really want to knock off another 10 pounds within the next 3 months and I can see the only way I'm going to achieve that is with exercise...yickkkk, I HATE exercise!

    The train looks yummy! I think you did a good job!! Did you have problems putting it together? I remember swearing quite a bit last year. I'm hoping to get our house done this weekend.

I need a new exam too. I'm going to wait until after Christmas. I have monthly contacts and I've been wearing them 3+ months at a time. I have one pair left. I hate going to to the eye doctor.

Maybe Bill wants it so he can look like Chuck Norris. emoticon

Nothing much going on. I watched the Biggest Loser last night.I enjoyed the ending.
Then I watched Charlie Brown as I had never seen it. Now I have seen it.
I am trying to get back on track.So far not too successful.
Here is a visitor I had outside my window today.

Just a few pics of trip. Here is a pic of Bobbi and I on her beautiful back patio.She was kind enough to crop the one she put on her blog.But I am showing my fat bod so you can see some of her lovely patio.The second pic is also on her patio.
Then a few at Butteryfly Estate. I will be posting them all on Flickr and myspace when I get time to do it.
Well we had to go to grocery store tonight so I need to get the stuff put away.I want to watch The Biggest Loser tonight. I am taping the Charlie Brown special because my cyber daughter Robin told me I needed to watch it at least once. So I will watch it tomorrow.
My eating is not too great.I have been off track for a few weeks now.But I haven't given up and I am still trying. I get so tired of thinking about food etc all the time. But I know you guys do too.
Have a good evening.

    Her yard is gorgeous!!! I'm jealous! My backyard is white with snow.

Did you watch the Charlie Brown special? I watched it Tuesday night and DRV's Biggest Loser. Unfortunately I already know who won. I saw it on when I got to work on Wednesday.

    The pictures from today and yesterday are great. I am so glad you had a nice time and the weather cooperated for you to go out on Bobbi's patio. When we overeat occasionally, we have to remember it is a LIFESTYLE change. And, now you know what to do to get back on track.

I know what you mean about thinking about FOOD all the time.. Seems like it is all I do is weigh this, measure that, but I've only just started, so I have many more days to go.. Do what you can, leave the rest to God!!

    I am looking out the window at 4 inches of snow with about 6 more predicted for tonight. You are sitting in the sun on a beautiful patio with no jacket. What's wrong with this picture?????

Oh and if you have never seen the Charlie Brown Christmas you do have to see it.

    Dear Eleni,

YOU are SO beautiful and I just love reading your blogs and the pics are so much FUN. What a lovely yard your daughter has. I'm so jealous at the moment as we are in the middle of an Arctic Freeze. Below zero temps are getting me down. BUT, the thaw is on the way and it will be in the 40s this weekend. Party time.

Just a quick Hi and THANK YOU for your support.

We have a winter storm moving in - 6 to 8 inches of snow.

Been meaning to tell you, Rich's Aunt who lives in Spring Hill is coming North to spend some time with us after Christmas. We are hoping she can stay for a while. Heck, I'd love it if she'd move here.

Take care & get some rest.
