Not Sure What Next Day Will Bring

       I take four items for my lunch. Both of my client had increase on the medication. So I only saw Regis briefly.
"Good Lord" if I took the medication like they both do. I know my name would be in obituary section.
"I got my doubt any of them heard of using food as medicine" most of the people I take care of eat a lot of non nutritional foods.
Confession time....Sure I eat food that don't have much nutritional value. I almost pick one up today. Because it was 50% off. One of those in pop can that you hit against the counter. Anyhow it was big gooey "Cinnamon Roll"
Since I mention four items...yogurt, one large gram cracker that I dip in the yogurt, 2 hard boil eggs, and 14 chicken hearts.
Breakfast 2 link sausage, potatoes,and 2 eggs.
Dinner Kale one of my favor vegetables, spaghetti squash with sauce of it and ground beef in it.
We didn't quite get 2 quarts of dried pears so Murphy and I ate the remaining ones.

As I was at work Murphy canned 7 pints of pears. Still have some left.

Painted our last arrow for our yard sale sign. It green this time.

I still would like to weigh in at our T.O.P.S meeting at 213.25 pounds. But I feel pretty darn full after dinner. It seem I gain up to 5 pounds during the day. I tend to hold water. The doctor told me that I have LYMPHEDEMA. But such non threatening case. But I still try to watch my salt in take.
5 pounds of liquid is usual worth half gallon of something or other.
My last weigh in was at 214 even.

Every One Has Emotional Scares From Childhood...Here Is One Of Mine

I was quite thrilled that Liz wasn't taking a break from Spairfitera. I was totally almost shit scared that I would have to mange on my own. I was afraid that everyone would walk out of the group.
I have a self confidential problem. Confession time...I don't think I deserve nice things in life.
I can pretty much trace it back to elementary school. I once got the highest score on a test. I was send down to principle office and I was falsely accused of cheating because I was to “stupid” to get such a grade. So of course they called my parents and soon as I walk in the door. I got in massive trouble and even the belt.
Confession time...From that day forward I always answered a few things wrong.
Over time I came to the realizing that I'm a worthy person in so many ways.

Tuesday is our T.O.P.S meeting and I need or want to weigh in at 213.25 or less. Our contest will be over and I'm down from when it started, six weeks ago and now I can be in the drawing.
Not sure what we will do but these mini contest helps us. In next six week I'm working to get my self down to 208.75 or under.
By the first of year I want to be under 200 pounds. My finely goal will be able to wear a size 12.
Not sure what weight that would put me. But I know I wouldn't want to be under 130 pounds.

Actual I did mange to get a little exercise I got on the rolling machine today. As for eating breakfast was two eggs, potatoes, and 2 link sausage. Lunch I tried a new way of grilling a cheese sandwich. Instead of every day cheese. I had some ricotta with a slice tomatoes.
3 clock snack 2 large gram crackers and milk. Dinner consist of 14 fried chicken hears. Half cup of mac and cheese. Stir fry veggies...zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers with garlic.




This morning Murphy and I dehydrated some pears. What left I believe we will can in pints.

I want to also dehydrated some cucumbers and zucchini.

I Just Need To Do It

          Eating more balance is going ok, but my exercise programs is not. I decided to get on the tread mill and do a little bit of running. But found it quite boring.
I do ok when it comes to eating last little while. Breakfast I had dinner. Chuck steak, kale, and bake potatoes. With a little bit of not sour cream and sprouts.
Lunch I found sort of four items. Crackers half of them a dip in white cream stuff. and the other part I spread some liver stuff on it.
and yogurt.
Dinner was a simple BLT. Now it came to me I had ricotta cheese.


When I was young I love gram crackers and milk and I had large crackers and milk.

      Well I got notice from "Liz" that she can't help with our local pagan group. Her and I started Spairfitera it mater of a family trouble. Her granddaughter is having surgery and she needs to be there for both of them.
I will try to continue on. Confession time...I'm some what apprehended on doing the group. I have a speech trouble called Auditory Dyslexia and how pronounce words can be a struggle for me. I'm not deaf! But at times I can hear my self mispronounce certain sounds. In simple term my brain and tongue don't cognate together.
I rarely read out loud. I complete understand what I read.
Hopeful others will be there to see it grow.
Our next event will be coffee and chat on Sunday Morning the thirteenth in the morning at Super One Deli.

      I finish up the turquoise and add second mix color ball on to the rag rug. I'm liking how it coming out. But not sure how to finish it off.
I also finish anther dish cloth. This one black and I did it in half double crochet using back loops only.
Today Murphy and I did up eight pints of green beans.

Dinner unknown source since I'll be out of town then.

Smoke On The Mountains

       
 
Since that bat flew in our house. Seem everything is going pretty good, knock on wood. I guess there all sort of OLD WIVES TALE but there fun to read. Me, personal I think we built our own life. Sure there bumps in the road and life lesson to be learn.                  There been plenty of smoke in sky. It might not be all day. But usual some time during the day the sun looks like a big glowing red ball                                                                 My noses inside itches like doing a line of cocaine and my ears feel like I been under water and waiting for my ears to pop.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                                Today I went to work for both places. Just short time I at Regis mostly to pick up some tobacco.                                                                                                                 Rest of the time I was at Carrie. Took her to her doctor appointment she seem to have trouble keeping food down. She had a GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY and the doctor thought it might be causing her trouble.                                                                                           I know to many people who had so much trouble years down the road. Statement time....I would rather face back surgery then do Gastric Bypass surgery.                       So we stop in at the local food bank, now there getting a lot bigger selection. I even got a few items.                                                                                                                        Maybe I'm pushing judgement toward others. But it seem those who uses the food bank seam to only want food high in bad carbs, such as doughnuts.                                         
There quite a bit of veggies and fruit be brought in. I got a package of asparagus and some kale. Grab two other items.                                                                                    
Did a little house keeping.                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                After work I stop in at my friend Alice to help me on the rag rug I've been working on. My trouble it kept curling up. So at far end I had to put in an extra stitch so it will lay flat.                                                                                                                                     There sure not cheap to do. At ten dollar a yard I don't see my self doing a lot of them. 
   
                                                                                                                                   
I been crochet anther dish cloth. Each set I'm changing the stitches. This one I'm working with front loops only, doing a half double.                                                                       
Black isn't easy to work with. Have to have the light just right.                                              
                                                                                                                                         My client treat me more then fair. Take my word I had some was pretty nasty. So I help Murphy freeze up some tomatillos.                                                                          
My eating was right on track and I even got my morning water in, 30 oz (0.88 liters) by Nine thirty in the morning                                                                                                Breakfast we had BLT and I wish it was on non white bread. But that what we had in our house. Lunch I eat four items. Today it was a piece of cheese, pear, banana, and strawberry yogurt. Before I move on to dinner at Carrie I had third of pastry. Both Carrie and Hershel have trouble with there sugar count, and there plenty of pastries around the place. I guess it doesn't bother them to be on metformin.                                                Dinner it was smoke salmon burrito. Trying to recall what I put in mind. Hot peppers, alfalfa sprouts, chives, dill, cheese, ricotta cheese, garbanzo beans, and of course smoke salmon                                                                                                    I had Murphy roll me up anther burrito which I will take to work tomorrow. I'll add three more items not sure what yet.                                                                                       For some reason I'm a little hungry but I don't eat after seven in the evening.                                Went to Library and got the book "Go Set a Watchman"                                                                                                Coffee is on

I Was Please

           I'm back to normal for me when comes to digestion. When I weigh in for our T.O.P.S I was under 215 (97.5) and it downward for me. My goal this year is to be under 200 pounds. I need to loose a hair over 12 ounce a week (0.05)
When I drop four pounds I will make my own personal mile stone. I'm getting my ears re-pierced. 

Breakfast was 2 strips of bacon, and some potatoes. Held off the eggs. After T.O.P.S I meant my friend Qunella over at Under the sun and had one of there fancy coffee. Don't recall the type I had. I know it was full of calories, but I need to be honest it sure was good.
Lunch was when I got home a little before noon. I ate a 6 ounce cup of rice pudding and Murphy re heated up the chicken noodle soup. He made the other day.
Then for dinner we had spaghetti. Instead of noodles we use an spaghetti squash. Sauce of it with ground beef.
Soon as I'm done eating I run away from the table as fast as I can. I don't want to chance over eating.
I still have some time left to eat. If I get hungry I'll do up some plain pop corn.

Our contest is coming to and end. I believe a lot want to take a break from it. But possible want to start one later on.
I need some type of structure, when it comes to loosing weight.

         Today Murphy and I went to Sandpoint and picked up the two windows for the bedroom on the west side of the place.
Not sure if we will be able to get the deck done or not. That will depend on the weather. 

         Yesterday evening we had our gathering of our local, pagan group SPAIRFITERA. The main topic for discussion was on "Pendulums" everyone brought one I believe. Personal I don't have one.
But I want to get my self an pagan symbolical to wear. I did contribute a little I shared   
an spirit board or a pendulum board.
Next month discussion will be on astrology. Confession time....I took at astrology and how we human work in this world.
Ok I'm off beat but I think that astrology and psychiatry  sort of go hand and hand.
Couple of items coming up. Saturday the 29th at ZERO POINT there offering and a crystal healing class. We're hoping to car pool down.
Then our full moon drumming will take place. I believe around seven that evening. As for where we will be drumming it still up in the air. Couple of thoughts where it might be.
We been meeting at chic n chop the first Sunday after the new moon. Not sure if it time or place, maybe it combo of both. But we haven't had much luck with bring pagans out of the broom closet.
But Our next gathering will be Sunday September 13 at 10 AM, and the ideal of having it at Super One deli.
Coffee is a lot cheaper there.
Then our next main holiday or we pagan call MABON and still unknown place to have it. We had our LITHIA at Smith Lake. Opinion time....With a little better organization we could have a better turn out. I believe that is main reason our summer solstice would of better attended.
I have no trouble of having an gathering up at Smith Lake but it heading toward winter and my thought is always on the weather.

Appointments Is Talking The Fall.

           Every since I had my colonoscopy, my digestion been off. So has my eating habits. But today I'm getting my self back on track.
Confession time....I been constipated, usual I don't have trouble pooping. But since I did to get ready, and I'll call it a scrub down for my colon.

Then our fair was this past weekend. My friend Gloria and her husband Paul comes up to our county fair.
As we was at the fair we got some kettle corn. There a local family who been doing kettle pop corn for ages and is quite popular. Murphy and I bought a five dollar bag worth.
Although it isn't all gone. Opinion time....It is good.


 So after we saw the fair. We took our guest to eat at UNDER THE SUN and always want to try it and it gets a lot of high praise. I wasn't disappointed in my meal.
There a quilt show I believe is first Saturday in October. I would like to have my daughter in law Molly and her mom Heidi come up to our local quilt show. Then I can take them out to lunch.

          Breakfast I tried a new recipe, RICOTTA PANCAKE There quite a few of these recipes. Me personal I believe it would have been better as a waffle. I want to know the NUTRITIONAL VALUE of these pancake since they have ricotta cheese. Editor note...I made up my own recipe.
I ate I guess would called it 8 inch pancake with almond butter and tablespoon of pancake syrup. But also I had about 4 inch with nothing on it. 2 small slice of bacon. 
Lunch was left overs from Under the sun. Not sure what it was called, tortilla shells with salmon, squash, and blue-cheese. Plus a 6 ounce of strawberry yogart.
Snack was two times in the day, kettle corn.
Dinner will be a pork chop, some type of carb, and a fruit or veggie.

          Carrie fell at the fair. She called me Saturday and told me she broke her ankle and chip a bone . It wasn't broken it was sprang. But I promised I would come in Sunday. I loaded up there washing machine and played a board game skat. She won 3 rounds and I won 1 round.
I'll go in Monday. I know I have to take her to her doctor appointment unsure of the time, change her bed linen, fold laundry, and what every else she needs done.

                                                   Coffee is on
