Busy Week So Far
Thursday, August 16, 2018
Have decided that the best way to keep a track on my food and diet is to blog about what I do everyday. I am truly amazed at the amount of time I sit around doing nothing...have been chiding myself that I have gotten lazy as I seem to be doing so little in a day.
Then the consolation being that maybe it just takes me longer to get around doing the same stuff that requires me to move around.
Had a busy Tuesday and I went shopping with my DILs #2 & 3 and then a late lunch with just some walking as my nurse left early. Actually I called her in early by 7:00 am as I needed to get my exercises and bathing done before breakfast as we set out to go shopping by 10:30. Had all my shopping done by 1:30 and waiting for the shop owner to send across the parcel for us.
On Wednesday had a relaxed morning with my usual round of exercise and chair yoga and then made some stuffing for parathas (a whole wheat bread) - Made a mushroom, corn and spinach stuffing and supervised my helpers who rolled them out. Made a batch of almost 25 and sent out a set of 5 each for all my sons homes as they all enjoy them. That was my lunch and dinner and my DIL#1 sent us some meat balls which Hamid had for dinner.
Well today seems to have so far unfolded as a relaxing day, and my daughter is sending us food today, she called in the morning to say so as she was making her father's favorite dumplings. Also some sad news, my youngest DIL's grandma who is a dear friend of mine, rather a childhood buddy, has been hospitalized due to severe gastritis. She was rushed to emergency late last night due to throwing up violently and is on IV and very dehydrated. If I feel upto it, will have my go with my DIL to visit her grandma at the hospital this evening. By the way my nurse didn't turn up this morning, had to wait till 9:30 and then when we called she says that she is sick and can't come. So managed my routine this morning with help for one of my girls and Husband.
the weather here has been pretty inclement and a lot of places have been saying devastation due to floods... please keep everyone in your prayers.
