Good Hump Day morning to you all. A nice cool one here, just in the low 60's right now and just a little breeze and no humid problems, that is what is nice about fall. The humidity finally give us a break. Hubby just informed me a few minute4s ago that they are going to try again today and see if they can combine more beans, hope it all works and they don't plug the combine, that is one major problem with wet bean stems, they don't flow thru the combine and they get plugged up in the inside and they have to about tear the whole thing apart unclogging it. So hoping all goes well.

I didn't get a whole lot accomplished yesterday, and I really don't know why. It seemed like I was doing something all day but when I look around it doesn't seem like much got done. I must try harder today. I got a couple more flower beds that I pick out to be the next ones to be cleaned out. One really easy just cutting off all the follage and raking it, the other one is a little more involved, cause it has some bulbs that need to be dug. This year we had so much wind that they about had all there leaves ripped off and are really kind of ugly, won't put them there next year.

I am on day 12 of the Tame your sweet tooth challenge, and it has been eye opening. Confusing at times but eye opening. I know that I have a sweet tooth and once I eat something like a cookie I can't stop until they are all gone. It is nothing to set down and be able to eat a dozen homemade cookies at a setting, or 2 or 3 pieces of cake. Yes, I am addicted to sugar. So for it has helped and I am doing well, and I hope they have a secret formula at the end to keep a person on top of it. I will have to have some kind of a reminder not to indulge. And art. sweeteners are not the answer, have to break that need for sugar.

All the livestock here are well, and discovering Merlin does not like Oliver or Huck, if he is in the house and I bring them in to feed them and he heres there meowing he wants out, Right Now. Guess he doesn't like there screaming. Outside he walks a wide berth around the carrying case they are in. Duke just walks up to them to see what they are and walks away, guess Merlin will not have a kitty in his dog house this winter, like Merlin Kitty was last year.

Well, you all have a GET day, and I will try to do something today that shows. Linda

    Yes, the one week that I did not lose weight was the weekend that I had pineapple upside down cake (I had one piece and then another piece and then a half piece). Once I overindulged on that, I bought a pint of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia Fro Yo and ate the whole container that night when I got home. I think sugar can be a drug.

    Hope the beans went well today, and I agree one of the nice things about fall is the break in humidity! Poor Merlin, he just wants to be left alone haha. Sounds like me except in doggy form. Maybe he's a highly sensitive dog, loud noises and too much commotion can be too much for him? Hope the kittens are doing well! They will have each other to keep warm in the winter, they will for sure have grown a bond in the time until then!

    I do pray that you're DH is able to get the beans in without clogging up the combine, as that you be one HUGE task out of the way.

    I'm delighted to hear that you're doing well with your sugar challenge, and I'll be praying that you find the secret formula that fits you and not rely on one that will be given at the end of the challenge.

    Merlin, and the wee ones don't get along at all. M=Perhaps when they get bigger, he might have a change of heart.

    My kids get a kick out of how long I can make one cookie far it's about 30 minutes. I just take little nips at a time... and enjoy my coffee, making sure there's a bite left once the coffee's gone. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We have a beautiful sunny day here, in the low 60's. Will have warmer weather tomorrow they say. You must have many flower beds. I don't like the bugs so my flowers are in a few pots. I really don't have a sweet tooth but sure like the salty stuff. I am learning moderation and that they will be here tomorrow. Good luck on your sweet tooth challenge.

    I think I heard Stevia is OK but I have read artificial sugars are worst then sugar. I am cutting out the artificial sugars first. Now added the salt. I even found peter pan peanut butter has no artificial sugars. I have not looked at the salt levels yet!!

    Have a great fall day!
