Rural Life

Thursday, August 06, 2009      7 comments

I live in a very rural area. When my son and husband aren't home I am often the only person around for a half mile or more. A few days a week I drive the 2 1/2 miles to our tiny post office to get our mail. My girlfriend works there and we... Read more

Go Go Go

Wednesday, August 05, 2009      5 comments

Today was nonstop activity. I had no time to rest and burned tons of calories. I sweated like a pig. I had very little time to eat either which is good for me. When I'm busy thoughts of food disappear. The more calories I burn the less I... Read more

Blue, This One's For You

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      11 comments

Remember the day I wasted trying to get my husband to buy some news shoes and dump the old dress shoes and the disgusting worn out Reeboks? My co-leader, who is into pictures, requested that I post a picture of the shoes. I want to remind y... Read more

The Path Less Taken

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      4 comments

I really enjoy reading other people's blogs. It reinforces to me how much more exciting their lives are than mine. LOL. While they are traveling to interesting locales I'm usually working in the garden. Mind you I'm not complaining. It's a trade... Read more

Mondays Suck

Monday, August 03, 2009      8 comments

I had a killer day. I hate Mondays. They seem to always include tons of work and very little rest. I got a lot done today but I still have a lot left over to do tomorrow. The 6 pet cages are clean. It takes several hours to do them. The... Read more

Cherry Pittin Day

Sunday, August 02, 2009      7 comments

We got the other 72 pounds of cherries done today. It took hours as we pitted these. We also ate a lot of them while we did it. So I have the one dorm fridge empty again and we can pick the cabbages now. The freezers are filling up fast. We are ... Read more

Pouring Rain and Worn Out Shoes.

Row, row, row, your boat..........................
.........EEK!!! I just barely got my exercise in today before it started pouring rain and I mean pouring. It turned dark and the heavens opened and it started gushing. Thank you, thank you, t... Read more

Finally Getting Somewhere

Friday, July 31, 2009      7 comments

I'm still fine tuning the diet. Weeding out triggers and problems. I cut back a little at noon on the protein and still had no symptoms and I had none after supper either for the second day in a row - no hunger, no cravings, no fatigue, no... Read more

Cherries On The Brain

Thursday, July 30, 2009      12 comments

My maiden name is April Green (LOL) and it suits me because I love the "greening" of spring and summer. To me spring and summer revolve around vegetation. I always knew that when I had my own home I would grow fruits, veggies, herbs, and flowers... Read more

Hump Day is okay

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      7 comments

I have been looking for information online about my chinchillas and it reinforces the fact that online information is iffy at best. I try to only use the best sites but even they contradict each other. Sigh. I have so many fresh veggies th... Read more

They are home!!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009      8 comments

Our National Guard boys returned home today from Afghanistan. It was wonderful. I think everyone in town shed a few tears. I got my errands done today and made some more decisions about my diet. I'm so slow fine tuning this. LOL. But I wil... Read more

I didn't get a lot done today like I wanted to. I won't make excuses for it. I wasted too much valuable time. I got my exercise in but could have made better food choices. I need to fine tune my eating habits. I am finally trying to get in... Read more

I didn't get the rest of the cherries done today. My sick baby chinchillas needed a lot of attention. I am upping their feeding schedule. No free time right now.... Read more

We got half of the cherries done today and will do the rest tomorrow. We're pooped. LOL.... Read more

Garden Gone Wild

Friday, July 24, 2009      5 comments

I'm exhausted. I worked on garden produce all day. I made picked beets, pickled cucumbers, cooked cabbage, pickled banana peppers, cut up broccoli, cut up and froze peppers for fajitas. Tomorrow I get to stem, wash, bag, and freeze 144 pounds o... Read more
