BUSY DAY

Monday, April 04, 2011

Today started early. I did have my "me" time at 4:00 to about 5:30. I started washing clothes and did 5 loads. Don't know where they all came from. Also, helped hubby (between loads going in and out of washer) take down some of the kitchen cabinets and install in the garage. We are getting ready for the new kitchen cabinets that are being made for us. They are to be delivered Saturday.After we did the cabinets, I went out and cut the grass on my new lawn tractor. I love it and have used it twice now. Hubby is playing golf tomorrow, so we can't do any other cabinets until Wednesday. Thursday we are having carpet installed in the bonus room. I didn't do much for dinner...we had all leftovers. Good thing I had enough. Hubby offered for us to go out for dinner, but I really like eating better at home.

Remember track you food, drink your water, and exercise even if only a little. Keep moving forward, one day at a time. Have a great day.

    Wow, that was a busy day! I'd rather have leftovers than go out to eat, especially after a busy day. I don't feel like getting dressed up to go out some place.

I hope you're having a great day today. Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

A Beautiful Day Today

Sunday, April 03, 2011

We sure are having a beautiful day today. This morning I did my ST and then we went for a little ride in the afternoon. When we got home I worked in the yard for a while. I just love working in the yard. After working in the yard for a while, we walked up to the little private airport and watched the planes go off and watched the gliders go up and get released. It is such a beautiful sight. We came back home and I am doing my sparking. I might just go back outside because it is so nice. I love spring time.

Another Good Day

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Well, I had another good day today. My brother came to visit Mom and of course me and hubby. I knew he couldn't stay for dinner so I made dinner for lunch. I made a lot of food, but I was able to keep on track (because of portion control). I had a spiral ham, crunchy potato casserole, fresh green beans, spaghetti squash, sliced tomatoes, and walnut pineapple cake. Boy, did I have small portions. I just had a small bite of the cake. My mom is here with us since a fall and hospital stay last month. She was really happy to see my brother and his wife (so were we). I am so happy Mom had a good day.

Good day today with Mom

Friday, April 01, 2011

Today I took Mom to get a perm. She really didn't want to go, but I finally talked her into it. After we got there, she said she was just getting a haircut, not a perm. Oh my. I suggested how much better she would feel if she got the perm and not have to do anything much with her hair. Also, my brother is coming tomorrow and I really wanted her to be happy she had the perm. BUT MOST OF ALL, I knew she would feel so much better if she got the perm.....because she would feel good that she looked really nice. She did get the perm and she was so glad she did. She liked the person that did it and she really liked how the person was so "sweet" to her. After we got home, she, hubby, and I went out to dinner. We had a nice dinner and Mom was really happy. It was so worth doing.

    That's wonderful, Nancy! When I read about you and your mom, it brings back memories of me and my mom. There were challenges from time to time, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. She lived with me the last 3 years of her life. Thank you for sharing your mom with us.

Hope you have a wonderful day! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

Great Start of the Day

Thursday, March 31, 2011

The weather may not be so nice today, but while sitting here sparking, I am listening to the birds singing. In spite of the drizzle, they are just singing away this morning. To me, there is no better way to start the day than to sit quietly, drink my coffee and listen to the day wake up. This is my time of the day and I always get up early to make sure I have this time to myself. When the weather gets a little warmer in the mornings, I sit on the deck and "bring on the day". Life is great and I am so fortunate for my great family, friends and health.

Remember to eat healthy, track your food, exercise and drink your water. Have a great day.

    Sounds like a wonderful way to welcome in a new day. We're having not so nice weather too, but the birds and squirrels are out in force today. I'm luck that I have a wonderful view outside my home office window. I've been watching the squirrels gathering up the pecans that they buried in the yard. I just saw a couple of cardinals chasing each other from tree to tree, not to mention all the robins out there as well.

Hope you have a great day! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

I think I'll start with a chai latte and hit the elliptical with my new novel... see how many chapters I can crank out.
