Oliver Twist & Merlin
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Here is little Oliver Twist, not the best picture but he wouldn't stay still to have it taken. As you can see, he is not very old, but he sure is active and noisy. He now will take 1 tablespoon at a feeding, today is 2 full days I have fed him so I think he will survive, but you just never know. Merlin was in yesterday when I was feeding him and put him down on the floor to get some exercise and Merlin be-lined it for the door and wanted out. He was having no kitten taking refuge in his hair again like with Merlin Kitty last winter. Animals, you just never know.
I am taking the sugar challenge and it has been a reminder of how much sugar is in our processed foods, it is no wonder we are an obese country, that and the fact that so many people don't cook anymore, they just open a box, or grab something from the freezer, and pop it is the over. I am so glad I love to cook and know what I am eating. I am not fat from packaged food I am fat because I love to eat wholesome food. But fat is fat, no matter how you get that way. m My problem is I am use to dessert with supper, and that has been hard, but now I really watch my portions, staying with half servings of dessert. But I won't know if it helps cause I haven't weighted myself since the 5th of Sept., and it feels so good, not to be chained to the scale.
Hopefully hubby and BIL will be able to get back in the field this afternoon. Ended up getting .4 rain, so they had yesterday off. Maybe today I can get some of my bulb dug. The calla lilies are starting to turn brown so I can get then dug. The cannas and the begonias are still blooming so they will have to wait until it freezes. I had better go out and pick the tomatoes again today and see if I can a few more pints, did sent home some jars with s2 the other day, so at least they aren't going to waste. He says chili isn't chili without moms canned tomatoes.
Hubby was just in to grab the check book, he has to go to the farm store and get a new gas cap assembly for the fuel wagon. It is cracked and dirt could get in the fuel tank and that would not be good. I had better sign off also and GET at something, mainly breakfast. Linda
