Started out the day hungry and have been hungry all day. Maybe I burned extra calories trying to keep warm out on the porch last night.
Had to go to WalMart to get food today. I needed familiar food and things I knew I could snack on without breaking the calorie bank. It's a half hour ride from Mom and Dad's. I was hungry all the way there. When I got there I was tempted at 10:30 to stop in their Subway and get a sandwich. But decided to safeguard against buying the wrong kind of snacks (though a sub would have been ok) by picking up some raspberries. i've used this trick before and it works every time. Raspberries are a special treat to me. Having this huge container of really good looking raspberries in my cart enabled me to pass by several other treats, including my favorite candy bar in the check-out line. I ate almost all the berries on the way back to the house. it was a double size box. Yum. I did save a few for mom and dad.
I had a good balanced lunch and have had two healthy snacks this afternoon, and I'm still hungry. I will not wait till late to eat tonight like I did last night.
I was sitting outside with my mom. We were just out there talking. I felt something by my arm and brushed it away. I didn't realize until it stung me that it was a hornet! Stung me right between my fingers. That smarts! I iced it and soon it felt better. There are so many hornets out this time of year here. I don't see them in NC. I decided to come in the house for a while. Not much of a fan of those critters!
