Saturday pics & stuff

Saturday, October 05, 2013

Well, I'm back at my computer . . . and so far so good.

I've downloaded some pics from the stuff from the past couple of weeks.
First is my first salad from my indoor garden - everything but the pepper which came from a neighbor's organic garden . . . and it was so sweet & yummy. I hope to get some seeds to grow those too.

Here are some pics of our small Betta tank, which is presently over populated, but everyone seems to be getting along just fine. There are two neon tetras hiding in the back but you can see the plecko and cat fish, one of which will go into the big tank soon along with the neons.

Here's DH pretending he's diving in to the new pond. This pic was taken from the high end of the pond, where the 'creek' will drain into it, and gives a bit of perspective on the depth.

This pic is from the low end as I was filling it. Since this pic, we've built the shelf along the right side and added a few plants and mosquito fish.

Lots more to do, but the vital part has been done and should be able to make it through the winter without a problem . . . . cos we need to get busy with firewood since fire season is over and we can work in the woods again.

It's a beautiful day here. Started off in the mid 30's but the sun is already warming it up out there . . . so I'm bundling up and heading out to play.

What are you doing this weekend?
How will it impact your journey to health?

Make it a good one!

    Wow that is SO cool! I love the pics of the fish.

I had my annual physical today. Doc was very happy with my lab results, he said he can tell how active I am by my HDL and triglycerides.

I am fighting way low energy and looking at my elliptical, reading blogs. You guys are building a pond so I'm getting on the elliptical. Thanks for the pep talk!

    Wow! Your water feature is really large!

I have a birthday party at a pizza place this afternoon, but plan to NOT eat. I will have my steak and/or butternut squash when I get home.

Tomorrow will be church, then I will bake cookies for Molly's birthday on Monday. She prefers that to cake.

I am going to take Monday off work. I will work out that am, then that afternoon will make Molly's dinner of choice. She wants "Gramma's" fried chicken, mashed potatoes and "Gramma's" gravy. Then her pineapple cookies and pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips. Easy enough!
