Good Morning Rhonda emoticon Your wish is also mine but that support may not be there. Al seems to think, no matter what is going on that he is the invulnerable exception.

I did pass this message along to my niece who is in the process of being approved for Bariatric surgery. She said she knew about the risk with the rapid weight loss but that the doctors have told her the supplements etc should prevent that.

That sounds like a fun day you have planned. I stay away from casinos-too tempted into my all-or-nothing attitude. Al likes the cards, the few times we went, and I had my container of coins to feed the slots with strict rules of no more once those coins were gone. Enjoy your Saturday!

Oh, you like cucumber-last night I did a sort of cucumber salad, very easy. just sliced cucumbers, greek plain yogurt and dill. We loved it.

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon it sounds like you have a lot to wrap your brain around. You will get back on track and fingers crossed that you will have more support from Al since this is also a health issue for him. I hope you get a break from the heat, hot and sticky is not pleasant.

I'm meeting up with friends today and there us talk of going to one of the casinos in Louisiana for the day. emoticon They all enjoy playing card games, I'm more of a slot person.

Good afternoon Ladies.

Desi if you don't have a mandolin you should have one. I went without one for the majority of my life. When I went to my s-i-l to learn the family recipe for sauerkraut she mentioned how tedious slicing and chopping the cabbage was. I went out and bought her a mandolin and then saw what a great job it did. I use it now for the sauerkraut and anytime I make scalloped potatoes. I will use it later today to slice cucumbers and onion for a cucumber salad. We could not use it for the sweet potato treats as they are so hard. However, Al has an electric meat slicer and that works a treat on those suckers.

Rhonda, yes, HEAT and humidity. Today feels like Florida did last season so any time outside is limited. We have already smashed the record for number of days above 30 (86F) and it only continues. Today is the most humid so far but still no sign of rain at all.

So Ladies, I was with Al on Wednesday when he had his first visit with a gastroenterologist. They are concerned he may have Fatty Liver and the ultrasounds were inconclusive. The reason I bring this up is that I learned not only are you at risk, being obese, for Fatty Liver but that risk percentage is very very high. We came home with a pamphlet and I am in a cold sweat. Of course I have gained back so much weight I am firmly back in the obese category. I also love my sweets and my wine which are also risk factors. Also I was shocked when we learned FRUCTOSE and diet sodas also greatly increase the risk. So, just passing that info along as I process it and try to get my weight loss mojo going. Oh-and just to make a complete shambles of everything, losing TOO fast is another risk factor.

Cheers Elizabeth

Desi the mushrooms are kind of chewy. the taste depends on what spices you use. I have been putting lemon pepper on them. The best batch of cucumber chips took 18 hours. I'm going to do another batch this week and put cinnamon on them. emoticon

Elizabeth is the heat wave headed your way? emoticon We had a brief burst of rain yesterday with a lot of thunder. All it did was make the humidity go even higher! The over cast sky was nice.

Good Morning emoticon emoticon I agree with Elizabeth a dehydrator with a temperature control is key. I think you can keep the chips for a long time as long as they are in an air tight container. I like starting the dehydrator late in the afternoon and running it all night. Designed you are going to need a mandolin to make the slices uniform and it takes time to slice all the food. I have been cheating with the mushrooms and buying pre sliced ones. Elizabeth I have thought about doing zucchini chips, I have not found any good zucchini.

What a great idea with the temp control ! I use to have one with several trays but don't remember a temp control, I think my dad, sold it on at a garage sale because it is nowhere to be found! I will look for a square as well. I forgot how much I love to dehydrate things,, lol....great never thought of herbs either !!!

emoticon I agree with Rhonda Desi awesome on the Pickleball.

We have a round dehydrator, did not even know you could get a square one. I plan to dehydrate some herbs today and would recommend, if that interests you to make sure you get one that you can regulate the heat on. Our first one was either on or off and this one is much better. It also came with a tray special for herbs.

I think I will look at doing zucchini chips Rhonda. Al planted them in his garden and we have already had two and I think that they always produce in abundance. Can you store the chips for awhile?

Good Morning emoticon I really like the cucumber chips, add some Apple cider vinegar and a little salt, yummy. Due to the humidity they don't stay crisp, mushroom chips are also very tasty. It sounds like Ruairi's treats are good enough for the entire family. emoticon Fingers crossed you get rain soon. We need rain which is crazy after the st spring and all the flooding.

emoticon emoticon Good Morning Rhonda and Desi
Yes, it is hot and while not unusual in itself there have been a lot of days which I think might put it into the hotter than normal range. What is a killer is that we have had very little rain so are in drought conditions. Certainly not the best year to have put in new gardens! However, we enjoyed a zucchini from Al's garden the other night and have another in the fridge.

We use the dehydrator to make Ruairi's sweet potato treats, dry herbs and Al likes his jerky. How are the veggie chips Rhonda? I guess Ruairi's treats would be along that line and I have snuck a couple-lol.

How is summer going for you both?

Well Hi!

Hot here, about 90F

Glad you are plying Pickleball Desi. Al is not playing much as his body is not liking it so much. I have been busy with gardening for the most part.

Hope everyone is doing well. I have been sort of on track.

emoticon Elizabeth hope you enjoyed your company. You have been working hard in your garden, I would count all of it as exercise. emoticon

Work was strange last week, there has been major river flooding going on close to where I work. I know several people that had their homes flooded. I had to take several detours everyday to get to work. There were some roads that were closed due to having several feet of water on them. One of guardian's lost her house, she said there was at least 9 feet of water in her area, we are going to take up a collection for her. It is very sad. I can't help but wonder how many of our students have been impacted by this.

All I seem to do these days is mess about in the garden. A few days have been heavy duty so I sure count them as exercise. The past few days have been cold (by June standards) and very windy so not doing much outside. Have to clean today as company coming tomorrow.

We not only have Spring but feels like summer now. We have been working to get the new garden ready and Al built and planted a new vegetable garden! I have ordered my daylilys for the year and back into serious weeding and planting annuals-the daylilys are to be picked up on Thursday morning. And we have had guests here since Wednesday until next Wednesday at least-phew.

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend.

Rain all day yesterday, which we needed but I keep seeing Texas is still getting it-wow.

We have dug out 6 of those roots. I am eyeing the garden now thinking I just don't want to do it while it is wet out but another 5 at least have to go. Al has been doing most of the work but yes, I could feel it the next day for sure.

Moving offices? Have never had a boss do that just because.

Wow Elizabeth that is some root! You don't need a gym when you are wrestling with roots. Are you sore. You have done a lot of moving in 18 years.

Its been nice to take my time unpacking this weekend. I have to save some of the boxes, my boss wants my office at a different location, she likes to shake things up from time to time. The office move will be the first week of June.

emoticon Good Saturday morning Rhonda. Yes, a weekend for some rest will give you time to find homes for everything. Moving is one of my least favourite things and in the past 18 years I have moved 6 times. In addition we 'sort of' move twice a year when we load and unload the motor home. I know that is more like the opening and closing of a cottage but it feels like that to me-lol This year especially as we have pulled absolutely everything out of the motor home we can in anticipation of the major repairs required. emoticon

Yes, this silly idea I had to turn the sand cherry 'forest' into a daylily garden is going to up my exercise considerably. Yesterday I dug out one root and worked at it. When Al came home he also worked at it as I worked in another part of the garden. When he was ready to try again to get it out I had to give him a hand and we finally got it out. The thing is at least 2 feet long and weighed a lot. Only nine more to go.

Enjoy your weekend!

Are you all moved in and settled? If you are you are superwoman. Always takes me forever to get stuff put away.

Very very glad to hear you were not personally affected by the flooding but you are so right about those who were.

Not much happening here. I am impatiently waiting to see the garden return to life. We have been digging out things that were here when we moved in and now want to replace. It seems everything that was planted has a HUGE root system-one would think they were planted by Fuccillo Kia lol.

I'm still packing and have taken the time to give away a lot of things I no longer use which is a good feeling. It looks like we are in for a lot of run for the next few days, thank heavens it will clear up by Friday moving day. emoticon my workouts are consisting of moving boxes and carrying stuff out of the house, I guess it's a little cardio and a lot of resistance training. emoticon

Good Morning emoticon The packing and the sorting continues emoticon at times it feels overwhelming, I know it will get done! It's a great opportunity to really de-clutter!

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon good for you counting the cleaning as exercise, it sounds like you were a cleaning machine! emoticon Hang in there about the snacking, those snack attacks can be tough to resist.

I was on the sore side after a weekend of sorting and doing some packing. I have a lot to do in the next 3 weeks. I have jury duty today, my fingers are crossed that I don't get picked and I'm out of there before lunch time. emoticon

emoticon Did not resist the next two night but there is always today. My sister-in-law returns for one night and I usually don't snack if I have visitors.

You are busy busy Rhonda and it is exercise, you are probably using some muscles that are different too. Yesterday I was busy bee with cleaning and I am counting it!

Ooh, new furniture in a new place-perfect.

emoticon Elizabeth emoticon on not giving in to the cravings! You rock! Bummer about the freezing temps, crazy weather this year! Heal south it is suppose to be back into the 80's by mid week along with sticky humidity.

I'm sorting, packing and making a huge mess emoticon I'm counting all of the packing activity as walking on the exercise tracker. I also have to do all of the usual weekend stuff. emoticon Tomorrow I need to go shopping for a new sofa I will have it delivered to my new place on moving day. I figure this is the perfect time to do it, I have been putting it off for quite some time. emoticon

emoticon So today I am proud I stuck through a massive craving last night and did not yield to it! emoticon Now to do the same tonight.

You are well ahead of the game here Rhonda, very organized. I guess you will be spending the weekend sorting

No, all days are weekends here. I was hoping to take Ruairi back on the walking trail again but the next few days are back below freezing so it will have to wait.

emoticon Good Afternoon Rhonda. You sound very happy about getting the new apartment. And moving is always a lot of work but at least it is not far! I remember moving 2 houses over and carried most of the stuff over in a laundry basket-well except for the furniture of course lol No wonder yhour mind was racing.

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon I love the picture! He is so cute! Good for you being able to relax and enjoy family. May the scale be kind to you when you step on it.

I was planning on moving at the end of June, an upgraded apartment 2 doors down has become available, so I'm moving 3 weeks emoticon emoticon I found out late yesterday afternoon. Time to get my rear in gear! emoticon I woke up at 2am with my mind racing with everything I need to do.

emoticon emoticon It's Meeeee. I'm baaacccck!

Thank you for the Easter greetings Rhonda. I hope you had a wonderful time.

This was one of the most relaxed family gatherings I have ever hosted as everyone insisted I go to 'no trouble' and for once I listened. Although I did not eat too much in the way of junk I still am nervous to step back on the scale. I attached a picture of Ruairi playing Easter bunny.

Have a great week Rhonda!

Good Morning emoticon emoticon yesterday was beautiful here and it was a calm day! emoticon it took me a while to find a resistance band workout that I liked. I think the key is to do something we like and keep moving. emoticon emoticon
