Happy Saturday -- OMG lazy day yesterday .. calling it my rest before a busy upcoming week !

Saturday, July 21, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday was a total waste of day ... I tried to play in my playroom... and with the exception of Ben's birthday card .. which I already had a plan in my head .. I could do nothing .. but I did finish Ben's card with the exception of the inside panel .. along with the envelope .. (haven't had the nerve to try and make the envelopes yet .. )

but then I started working on a girlie one for my friend for August 3 .. and well -- there are a number of starts in my garbage .. *sigh* .. so I just tossed the idea and went downstairs .. where I sat in my sitting room for the REST of the day !!!! SAT SAT SAT !!!! and SAT some more ..

Hubby came home from his running around, and I got up to make shake and bake pork chops that he picked up .. and enjoyed every bite .. for dinner we finished up the pork chops .. I had 2 each serving .. they were thin cut, and delicious ..

Yesterday morning, my cereal (honey nut cheerios) I think saved me .. because it was the end of the box, and I was going to open a new box but didn't .. That's when I was still struggling to keep in my right mind .. lol lol ....

Well -- between the cheerios in the morning, and the 4 pork chops for lunch and dinner .. I must have done something right .. Well -- Yes .. I'm glad you asked .. I did ..

I faught all day .. it was that lazy addage of "well -- you messed up your day .. why not have ...." .. and I fought all day to not have ice cream .. It was close enough to the weekend .. but alas .. I didn't... This didn't start until after dinner .. when I was upset with myself for having such a lazy day ..but I was literally tired .. I napped throughout the afternoon ... (and thankfully still slept like a log last night .. I was prepping myself for not sleeping last night because of my laziness yesterday) ...

Instead of having the ice cream to clean up my sweet tooth, I went back to the freezer, and thankfully saw my fudge bag AFTER I grabbed my bag of frozen grapes .. (and laughed as I played "no backsies" .. The bowl of frozen grapes soothed my sweet tooth that was growing ..

Frozen grapes are great .. because you can have a small bowl full, and while regular grapes, you can (at least I do) grab a handful and before you know it .. it's gone .. When I'm eating frozen .. my mouth freezes; and well-- I have to concentrate on each grape, because if I don't pay attention; it hits my new cap; and sends me through the roof .. (metal conducts cold and it's a gold cap) .. So -- frozen grapes are the best thing since .. Frozen bananas .. lol lol ..

Anyway -- I digressed .. I had my bowl of grapes to ease my sweet tooth, and even though I wasn't hungry with the exception of that darn sweet tooth .. It worked ..

I crawled into bed around 8 .. and normally I have a couple of jelly beans before going to sleep ... but I've earned them .. yesterday I didn't .. so I didn't have any .. and I was fine with that .. My want for sweet was sufficed by the grapes .. ...

This morning, I braced myself .. I was expecting to step on the scale and see 2 pounds up .. because of lack of activity (gross lack of activity) .. and I (listening to the Jaws theme in my head as I walk to the scale) .. ONE POUND DOWN !!!!!

I thought and I thought !!! I think what saved me was not that I was lazy ... (that's NOT going to become a habit .. I hated myself yesterday for it, but evidentally (now that I had a good night sleep) my body really needed it .. ) but with the exception of the bowl of cereal in the morning .. I stayed with lower carbs .. and I truly believe that's what saved me ...

I did get some cool pictures yesterday the few times I got up and wandered around the house .. :)

He was tough .. but I think the hook was just enough out of the rain, that he was happier there, however every time we got up and moved .. he took off .. My ultimate wish is to get one in flight .. and I will do that one day ... !!!!

This was Mr Chubby Cheeks .. and we actually saw how he climbes up and down the pole yesterday .. lol

And poor Mrs Cardinal looked like a little drowned rat yesterday .... her pretty crest was called having a bad hair day .. Mr was just as bad ..

Today .. my lazy is out of my system, and I'm started with meeting my friend at a restaurant for breakfast .. I'm looking so forward to it !!!!

and then while I'm out .. I don't know what I'll get into .. but we'll see .. it won't be sitting my butt on the couch .. lol lol .. Hubby offered to take me out to lunch/dinner before going to the Hartland Street Dance .. (little street festival in our town) .. at TGI Friday's .. and I'm looking forward to a turkey burger .. ... Just hope the rain behaves with the street dance ..

So -- while I couldn't record any exercise .. not even "off my butt" time .. I am back today ..

Gotta get myself going here .. so talk later .. I wish you a wonderful Saturday !!!!!!

    A lazy day every once in awhile is good to give our bodies a rest, just. Not too often. I’m at a family reunion this weekend & we are sleeping downstairs so that’s forced exercise for me. 😆
    I’m going to enjoy this time and I hope you have a fantastic weekend too.

    I really liked your pine-themed card. Very clever.

    Sometimes we just need that lazy day! BUT you’re back now. That’s what counts. AND you skipped the ice cream. GOOD for you for soothing that dang sweet tooth w/the frozen grapes.

    AND . . . drum roll . . . a lb. released. That’s awesome.

    Hope you have a good time @ the dance festival!
