It would seem that since I woke up this morning for the first time in 7 days without a sinus/allergy headache so bad that I would be dizzy at times, that I would relax and enjoy the h.a free day.........NOT A CHANCE!! Just look at the jungle that is supposed to be my back yard.....I was out on the mower for over 3 hours. Not all at once, I did have sense enough to take breaks. OH and I did take an allergy pill before I started. So I guess Tarzan will have to find a new home.
I'm not sure if sitting on a John Deere mower for 3 hours is considered exercise however my yard used to be a pasture so it has more craters than the moon. I bumped, jiggled, and thumped for the entire 3 hours on that rough ground.
God did bless me with an amazing site..........2 very large hawks (at least I think they were hawks) were floating and diving right over my property for over an hour. I got to watch them fly, float, and frolic on the current. One stayed and the other one left. The one that stayed dipped and dove and floated for a good 45 minutes longer. A special show for an audience of one to watch.
Of course, I aggravated moths, grasshoppers, crickets, and many other bugs. I even scared a field mouse out of it's spot into another spot then back to the original spot.
Anyway, John Deere and I had a nice long afternoon together and so far only a teeny tiny bit of a headache.
If you can see the dark spot in the middle of the following picture it is the hawk...
For the past 2 years this mum has looked so spindly that I almost pulled it our........look at it this fall

You've probably heard or read this at least 200 time so maybe this time it will sink in...just what size plates, forks, spoons, cups, etc. are you using...
are you using a soup/cereal bowl for soups, cereals,fruit, etc?.......try using a sauce dish.....it holds one serving of cereal with enough room for a small amount of milk
are you using a soup cup or bowl with a handle........try using a coffee mug...automatically smaller servings
what about your plate? proper servings on a regular dinner plate look very small so try a salad plate or even a toddler plate with the sections on it....sure makes your servings look soooo much larger
eating with salad forks or even youth forks and spoons will have you taking smaller bites therefore making your meal last longer and filling you up more..
By using the much smaller plates, bowls, cups, and silver, your meal will look bigger and a lot of what we eat is because it LOOKS so small to us so we add more to fill the plate...then because we have the "clean your plate" syndrome we over eat.
In this way, you can easily set your self up to win at the losing game...and even if you takes a second helping, you are still eating less than with the full size dinnerware and silver..
If salad/desert plates are still too big, go down to the bread plates.
What do yu think? Is it worth a try?

Yesterday started out to be one of "those" days but ended up good.
1. I slept late---now you say, well you are on vacation so what's the big deal?..I wanted to get some things done before we went to the mall. I had to go buy an extra set of clothes because I only took clothes for 3 days and stayed 4 days. So off to Walmart, I go. I took my picture card to have a CD made for my sister in law who is sight impaired. The machine decided to play hard to get---what should have took just 8 to 10 minutes took over 45--I was fuming. Because of this time frame, I was unable to get something decent for breakfast so ended up not eating nearly all day. I did get a Subway oven roasted chicken breast on 9 grain honey oat bread to go. By the time I got back to my room, I had a headache. Not too much later, Dale called and said they were on the way and to meet them at the mall. I did this. After an hour of walking, standing, walking, standing my back was hurting along with my head. I excused myself and went back to lay down for a bit. I woke up 90 minutes later--feeling much better.
Later in the evening, we went to the show----it was fantastic...we saw the Baldknobbers. My headache had diminished some by then. When I got back to my room, I took another allergy pill so I could sleep the night. It worked--I got up early, got off to home and was home by 10 AM.
Still having some head heaviness and light headed time because I didn't get enough water while in Branson. I've been drinking the water today..By tomorrow all will be good again...except now my credit cards are groaning...
