Up and cleaned out the kitty litter, bath, dressed and called the car dealership...now to wait for the call back.......looks like you pick a car online and they deliver it to you......sounds good to me.  Never picky here...never test drive.....just go to lot, pick a car usually...figure the lease payments....and if all is inline we drive it home....too easy......since we are brand faithful and even style faithful.....it works really well.  So if the salesman wants to sit on our deck and do his paperwork...wonderful...he brings the new one and takes the current one back with him......I kind of like this......they always like getting our cars back...no dents, stains, damage at all...and very low mileage...in this case 7,200 miles on our 2018. 

Continuing with online stuff for D today..........that seems to never end.....he can oly do so much on his phone and he hates to use the computer so....it's up to me......and that's okay.

Breakfast = coffee and toast with PB and jelly

Scales fine...can live with that

Today's accomplishments HAPPY style

1.  cleaned cat boxes and took to trash

2.  Bath/dressed

3.  Left message for car dealer..still hasn't called back

4.  breakfast

5.  D's computer things online ( got that done)

6.  gathered all trash and took to can...put can at front of garage for D to take to rd.

7.  Paid 2 bills and took to mailbox

8.  Note to self to tell D that the road got chlorided.....no more dust...now need to pay neighbor for that...tell D...NOPE...not chloided...just graded...hmmmm

9.  Sorted laundry and started first load

10.  Plan menu...get meat from freezer

11.  Made bed

grannyannie on 06/24/2020:
Mmm....toast, and PB. Not having either and miss both.

bearcountrygg on 06/24/2020:
It's my kryptonite.......I stay away for awhile and always end up going back...and to top it off I'm allergic to peanuts...LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 06/24/2020:
Omg your car is such a deal to get back indeed !!!! I’d take it lol!

I like the HAPPY way and can relate to listing like very thing and feeling good about it!

I’m paying a bill today too!

bearcountrygg on 06/24/2020:
They just never seem to stop do they...LOL


KathyBlue on 06/25/2020:
oh how can you eat PB if you're allergic to peanuts? Is it a mild allergy? By the way, I discovered ALMOND butter and CASHEW butter. They both are freaking amazing. Almond butter is my favorite! But I never eat PB or any nuts butter on bread nowadays. I just use a teaspoon... It's just a treat, a teaspoon of happiness. :)

bearcountrygg on 06/25/2020:
I test positive on the skin tests to it...and yet have craved PB my entire life.......luckily I don't have any throat tightening with it..although I wonder if at some point it could happen........I guess the craving is stronger than the fear...LOL


legcramps on 06/25/2020:
I wish I would have had that option with my vehicle; it sounds absolutely delightful in its' simplicity and convenience!

Also - I would not be able to restrict peanut butter either if I was allergic to it. I would have a good cry, and then go ahead and eat it and accept the fallout. Unless it was a severe allergy, then I would just cry. All the time.

bearcountrygg on 06/25/2020:
If I didn't just go ahead and eat it...it would be a craving that never ended. It's probably my most favorite food. I'm allergic to walnuts too...but I can leave them alone.

Rainy here.,..and a clittle cooler.....so far I've spent the morning making masks for us and doing some online work for D........So HAPPY to get the internet back!! 

Breakfast = coffee, yogurt and a small pumpkin scone

Lunch = brat, carrots, noodles, english muffin

Evening = nature valley fruit and nut bars, dried fruit and the leftover chicken alfredo.

We sure do have a lot of carb heavy foods around here....when I do shop now I rarely buy that stuff........with us both watching our weight and D a diabetic that is about the last thing we need.........but...we are using up what we have....and replacing mainly meat, fruit, veg , eggs and nuts.....will still be buying bread though.  Even though i have always been able to lose weight over the years eating junk foods...I can see as the years go by ( and they are going fast now)....that I need to lower the amount of them.....i grew up being told that every meal must contail a protein and a fruit/veg and side of something carb.....we lived that way for 54 years and still do....but especially for D's sake I can see the need to just stop buying a lot of that stuff.  Unfortunately there is still a lot of that here though.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2020:
You could sell those ! People are making so much money making them but nice you don’t need to buy them!!!! If I were able to make my own, I would have too. It’s a great skill to have !!!

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
I'm making them by hand....sewing machines and I have never gotten along...LOL

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
D has a beard...so I'm making him one that doesn't have elastic on the bottom......calling it his face skirt...LOL


KathyBlue on 06/23/2020:
Hey there, send me some of the rain and cool please... It's unbearably hot here... :(

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
Downpours here....beating on the house....but I love it!


innerpeace on 06/23/2020:
DH and I got up to walk and when I went to work at 7:30 it was pouring down rain. We haven't actually purchased masks...picked up a few from work (cloth washable) I have just been washing them.

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
We have been wearing just regular dust masks......still have some left but I think we are ready for something that doesn't go around the back of our heads.....so making those with elastic around ears.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2020:
The beard skirt made me laugh ! Please send a photo maybe ?! Of the beard and mask !

bearcountrygg on 06/24/2020:
LOL...Not done with it yet....not sure he wants to have the pic out there...LOL


Donkey on 06/23/2020:

Horn_of_plenty on 06/22/2020:
Thank gosh he fixed it !!!! How awful ! Especially if you were working or really needed soMething ! What a pain!

Glad you are ok!

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
Yup...all is well.


Donkey on 06/23/2020:

Slept good...nice day out....heard a fawn calling it's Mom this morning...for a long time...hope it's Mom is okay.......battling ants in the kitchen...I swear...there is NOTHING that turns me off about cooking..than having ants in the kitchen!!  They are relentless...the traps aren't working...but last night figured out that a pure white vinegar wipe down and then a spray with lysol kitchen cleaner worked in the spice/herb drawer...but now...they have moved...so apparently the whole kitchen will need to be attacked.....UGH............

Spent the rest of the morning getting locked out of an online bank account because I was too stubborn to put my reading glasses on...LOL...a couple of phone calls later.....an interesting discussion with D about how old age stinks...and we are back in the accounts............paid a bill, did some paperwork and now laundry...dryer stopped drying with heat a few days ago...but still drys...just needs 3 rounds each load...I'm interested tom see how the next electric bill looks...LOL...Not a good time to buy new...friends have had a horrible experience with that since the lockdown......2 delivery cancellations and arrival with a severly damaged refrigerator........don't really want  a repairman here right now either...so just doing what I can with what I've got.....so daily laundry....to keep the loads small.

Breakfast -= coffee....not really hungry so not eating so far.

KathyBlue on 06/19/2020:
Oh ants are a problem here too and I get them on the third floor apartment too! There is no limit for ants, they appear everywhere. Some traps are not working but some do, keep trying! For me the best ones were those where ants go in, take the "food" with them and it kills them off in their hill. It's some kind of toxic food for ants.

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
That is the kind we have...they always worked in the past...but not this time....I'm not one to spray...so we will keep trying....these are really tiny ones this time.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/19/2020:
will you get an exterminator for the ants? that's terrible. my folks had ants growing up and they had to get these carpenter ants exterminated because there were too many.

sorry about your dryer...at least it's summer and things can dry easier for these couple months?


happy-1 on 06/20/2020:
Boric acid is cheap and has changed my life.

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
I will check up on that ...thanks


Donkey on 06/20/2020:
Ants -- get a spray bottle of some sort. I reused a spray bottle of some kind of cleaner.

Put in a good squeeze of dish detergent - not for the dishwasher, but for handwashing dishes in the sink. I used Dawn.

Fill up the bottle with water.

Spray this on any ants. Kills almost instantly, smells nice, environmentally/human/pet friendly.

bearcountrygg on 06/23/2020:
Okay...Thank for that idea....I have some of that spray Dawn dish washing liquid...maybe that would work too.

Nice bright day out..........supposed to get warm but not in here...D has the AC on....he sweats...I freeze...so Iw ear winter clothes year around in the house and it works for both of us.......I just have to switch to summer ones when I go outside.

Well...you can tell it's summer in the forrest....4 HUGE full logging trucks have been by today already and it's only 10:00....they shake the house...things actually rattle in the cupboards......this might be what it's like in a smaller earthquake......felt one once that shook for a couple of seconds..........these trucks are doing a great job of recreating that!!!  Plus...the forrest is disappearing....bit by bit.....Hopefully Michigan spends that money wisely...LOL...not a chance!   This displaces the animals...we will see more bear and deer now......and UGH...D found a nest of TICK eggs this morning in the yard......yuck.

He took my car for an oil change...so the house is quiet for the moment.....ahhhhh.............

Breakfast was coffee and a pork and potato hash....not counting today

Lunch was a sloppy joe, mixed greens salad and mixed hot vegetables

Evening = cookies....but now they are gone!! Well...and the last few chips.....made that stuff disappear......now it's gone...better do some counting tomorrow........I think I need to challenge myself a bit more.

grannyannie on 06/18/2020:
Never need AC here. I have a fan but that's for when I'm working out. My husband is a tick magnet. Always has to check after he's gardening.

bearcountrygg on 06/18/2020:
I got a tick bite a year or 2 ago.....in June.....and it was miserable...in fact it still itches sometimes....swelled and just caused a lot of itching...luckily no lyme disease though....do you have that there?


Donkey on 06/18/2020:
I would think that a nest of tick eggs would be very, very small. So the fact that D located one -- that is very, very SCARY! I'm gonna go Google images for tick egg nest now...

Love sloppy joe - I'm going to propose that to my husband for dinner soon.

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
They look like caviar...in this case he said they were a line of them....so he destroyed them all sometimes they look like a pile of eggs.


Donkey on 06/18/2020:
Ok - do NOT look up tick egg nest. That is disgusting and icky-ewwy!

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
They are disgusting.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/18/2020:
Yuck ticks! I know two people personally who suffered MAJOR sickness bc of Lyme Disease from ticks !

Yummmm potato hash !

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
Me too...it's a miserable illness to have...changed some old friends totally...and they haven't been healthy since. I love hash....from a can...or homemade.....super fast meal out of leftovers.


happy-1 on 06/18/2020:
Sounds like you need quail to clear the ticks out. 1-2 birds per acre.

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
Funny you should mention quail...when the boys were little...the guy at the kids shoe store gave them 2 quail...LOL...in a shoebox....we took them home and they laid eggs which we ate...D made a cage for them...but they are no more...so I guess we would need 4 to 8 quail then.....there are wild ones around but don't see them in our yard......ticks are an annoyance....and the amazing thing was when i had one on my shoulder...I never felt a thing...they must inject some pain killer when they bite...I had no clue until D saw it....sent him off to Lansing....they didn't think he had lyme. The dogs outside get them sometimes.


grannyannie on 06/19/2020:
We do have a lot of ticks here but Lyme disease is low here.

bearcountrygg on 06/19/2020:
Here too...mine was a deer tick which usually doesn't carry lyme.

Woke up feeling great.....i have to say that after the MCT bellyache was over...I felt great......will continue with that but on a much smaller dose.  Will also take it after eating today to see if that helps.

Breakfast = coffee and yogurt

Took the MCT oil after breakfast and felt fine.......dropped it down from the recommended 1 Tablespoon to 1 teaspoon...and tolerated it well............no shomachache today...and loads of energy and feeling really good.

Snacks mid morning....most likely out of boredom.....

Horn_of_plenty on 06/17/2020:
Yes sometimes oil can go right thru you! But sounds healthy :)

bearcountrygg on 06/17/2020:
After yesterdays 2 hours of bellyache....i did spend some time in the bathroom......but felt great after.


legcramps on 06/17/2020:
What is the MCT oil supposed to help with?

bearcountrygg on 06/17/2020:
Helps weight loss, appetite reduction, improves performance and endurance, increases energy, increases calorie burn especially in fat, natural antiviral and antibiotic, reduces cardio disease in some,helps gut health, helps with blood sugar regulation, Helps brain health and concentration and can extend life.

bearcountrygg on 06/17/2020:
Once I got over the stomach ache...I was loaded with energy....i was steadier on my feet ( lately I've been wobbly again...can be from age or low blood sugar for me).......Just don't start with the full Tablespoon on first day........1 teaspoon was fine today although i did get snacky...something that I did NOT do yesterday.


grannyannie on 06/18/2020:
Glad you're feeling better!

bearcountrygg on 06/18/2020:
ME TOO..thank you!


KathyBlue on 06/18/2020:
MCT ? I haven't heard about it, what does "MCT" stand for ?

bearcountrygg on 06/18/2020:
Medium Chain Triglycerides...made from coconuts. Donkey is familiar with it I believe.


Donkey on 06/18/2020:
The MCT is supposed to keep you satiated longer so that you don't eat. Plus something about the body using fat as its fuel source is supposed to help.

I found similar results using coconut oil in my coffee.

bearcountrygg on 06/18/2020:
The day with the Tablespoon...it did keep me full until late evening.....on the day I took just 1 teaspoon...it didn't have that effect....but I did have the energy and better balance both days.....but the small dose was more agreeable.

Cool and nice here this morning.....slept really well......I folded a quilt and put it on the corner at the foot of the bed and the cat loves it...sleeps all night and stays away from my face.... ( I'm allergic to cats....LOL)....yet I'm really congested...which is kind of typical...but yesterday...it really hit me......eating, walking, doing anything just wore me out.....nothing really new for me....but a touch worse than usual......so today....taking the mucus relief pills...and making sure that i don't sit around like yesterday...that seems to just make breathing worse....I also ate a bunch of junk yesterday and felt crummy after eating....today....back to counting cals.....moving around and clearing out my lungs.  Adding tylenol and all of the vitamin/supplement things.....I need to follow through with healthier eating, moving around, and taking the vitamins.......long enough for it to become a habit...without thinking...doing it automatically .......why is it...the crummy things become habits so easily...yet the good habits fall by the way side?  ....maybe the good habits aren't fun enough? 

I still have the WW counter....so out of curiosity...I checked decaf and MCT oil on it and was shocked...I was thinking of using the MCT oil as a supplement and not counting it....but...chcked it...IT'S 7 POINTS ON WW and 130 calories......this is nothing to just take as a supplement...it's a food and a high cal/point food at that.....this probably will not be a daily thing.

TODAY...DAY ONE OF CREATING A POSITIVE GROUP OF HEALTHFUL HABITS

Breakfast = coffee = 2 cals, 1 cup decaf = 5 cals, 1 T MCT OIL=130 cals, 2 oranges = 124

Only got about half of that MCT oil and decaf down so far and that stuff made me nauseated......stayed down though....and feel okay at the moment...still need to drink the other half and will bite the bullet and do that...slowly...........not so sure about this stuff....but committed to at least using the bottle up eventually.

Eventually drank the other half of decaf and MCT oil and got another stomachache.....

Lunch was pork loin with BBQ sauce = 214, 2 english muffins toasted with butter = 360 and 4 small red/yellow peppers = 10

Dinner...HOPS oats sounded so good I had oatmeal with blueberries and flax = 240

Pomegranate tea = 0

--------------------------------------------------------

calories for the day = 1,085

I will say that I have a HATE/LOVE relationship with the MCT oil........it gives me a stomachache for about an hour and a half...then I feel WONDERFUL....I think I will stop the 1T...and move down to less than a teaspoon...and see how that goes.  I looked it up...probably something I should have done before taking it...and the stomachach is common...........BUT...part of me wonders how healthy that is...........the after bellyache though is magic........

 

Grannyannie on 06/16/2020:
Yea, indulging is more fun than behaving. But the result isn't fun.

bearcountrygg on 06/16/2020:
I never seem to think about that while eating....LOL


happy-1 on 06/16/2020:
"why is it...the crummy things become habits so easily...yet the good habits fall by the way side?" I am right there with you on this.

bearcountrygg on 06/16/2020:
More fun.....not fun.........UGH


Horn_of_plenty on 06/16/2020:
i hope you continue to feel better. i got allergies in the Spring and they are over...was an easy Spring with allergies since i was hope and sleeping more so allergies became much more bearable than in the past!

bearcountrygg on 06/16/2020:
I wish my did that...mine just seem to go on all year at some level......


Donkey on 06/16/2020:
I definitely agree with reducing the amount of MTC for now. Try a teaspoon, and see how that feels. It's supposed to be very good for you... and you might add well use up what you have.

I hope you keep it up and let us know if you find a happy dose.

bearcountrygg on 06/17/2020:
I wish I had read about the bellyache first...but I will say...I do feel really good...I will have a much smaller dose today because it is well worth taking...i do feel great.

Thought I was going to start counting today....but the scale told me otherwise....so I will just keep with watchful waiting.  I'm not going to count just to count anymore...that makes me think about food too much.  I am thinking that all of the fresh produce that I picked up lately is a lot of help. 

Chilly 45 here right now....but nice and sunny.....

No specific plans today.

Ended up having the house to myself for 4 hours this morning and I loved it...I see D just pulled in so I guess I had better get cooking..............watched lots of youtube self help type things....( my passion).....used to read the books...now...i just watch the videos...so much faster...and you get the tone of the speaker so much better...or at least I do. 

No plans for the afternoon....just going where it decides to take me......and getting some laundry done at the same time...........

 

Donkey on 06/15/2020:
I feel the same way about calorie counting, for myself, and as long as the scale is favorable, I agree for no need at this time.

I hope you gave an enjoyable day!

bearcountrygg on 06/15/2020:
Thank you


grannyannie on 06/15/2020:
What's the high temp expected today where you are? I think you are much farther north than my family.

bearcountrygg on 06/15/2020:
Todays high is 74..........still in the 40's right now though.......we are in Mio, East of Grayling.......and since we are in an area that is mainly federal and state forests.....the trees keep it cooler..and then some lake effect too......we don't have a lawn...the forest comes right up to about 6 feet from the house...so we keep pretty cool here.......it's always funny here in the summer...we have the Ausable river running through town so we get a lot of vacationers here....this time of year you see them all over town....wearing shorts, flip flops and warm coats....they are so surprised that we stay quite cool...and they never expect the river they are rafting down is just plain cold...LOL


grannyannie on 06/15/2020:
I had stopped counting calories and have gone back to it beginning today as I'm just too undisciplined to go by my own judgement.

bearcountrygg on 06/15/2020:
I do that too...off and on...and will probably forever...I'm a carb lover too........although I have always been able to lose well with eating carbs....it's always been more about the calories for me....but.....Ido think the older I get...the more the carbs slow me down....but....I can eat them and maintain.....They do get out of hand around here to sometimes.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/15/2020:
oh yes, even though i am a counter, it can get old fast!

bearcountrygg on 06/15/2020:
Yup....counting for me can be a problem....it works for awhile and then it becomes something I think too much about......and i just wing it for awhile...until I'm ready to get back to that again.

Unusual June here...mid month and 40 degrees.......we don't plant gardens anymore but so many here have lost theirs to June frosts that I'm glad now that we didn't.  Saw the most gigantic black bird (raven?) in a tree in the front yard this morning....must have weighed about 15 pounds at least....I've never seen anything like that here before. 

While out getting errands done the other day....I did pick up some fresh produce and boy did we miss not having that..........it seems like that is all we have been craving.  About half of the people were wearing masks...and I see that apparently they are not required in our store now...but they did have a sign that said they were allowing only so many in the store at one time now...yet no one was there counting...so........I still wear a mask and use sanitizer when I get back to the car.

For some reason my car alarm is going off when either one of us even opens the door even when we are holding the remote..........so much for my perfect car.........what a bunch of noise...thankfully it's in the garage.......I went out yesterday and pushed enough buttons on the remote that for now...it is at least letting us open the door..........okay....now I'm ready for a new one........!!!!! 

Still don't know what happened around the corner on Friday...whatever it was...it's over.

Scales up slightly this morning.......so watching it today...and possibly back to counting cals tomorrow....don't want anything to get out of hand.

Otherwise...quiet day here today...............

 

 

Donkey on 06/14/2020:
It's my opinion - and my habit - that we should ALL be using hand sanitizer when we get back into the car after shopping. I kind of think, Hello? who HASN'T been doing that already? GROSS. And it's so disappointing to see people shopping without masks on. I guess I'm being judgmental but for the most part, I see it as someone who does not care about others but only their own comfort.

This year's spring has been very erratic, going from chilly to blazin' hot. For example, yesterday's low was 51F. By Wednesday, I'll have the AC on for highs of almost 90. For now, I'm enjoying the fresh air :-)

It sure isn't getting very hot here...staying chilly and summer will be gone and we won't even know it.....

You are smart to wear that mask in the stores and use hand sanitizer. I am doing mostly the same as you (not always using hand sanitizer, but at least always with a mask indoors in public)

LOL, somebody made a joke today that new cars have too many sensors!

Computers in cars are changing everything.....I think my remote key may have been the culprit...at least now it lets me open the door...LOL...although I haven't tried to start it since....will see the next trip...LOL

Sounds like the pcb boards on your fuse box are fried. You can just get a new fuse box and put all your old fuses in it. The key remotes should work again.

After pushing the button on my remote several times it seemed to straighten out...will have to see if that fixes it.

Can happen if your car gets super hot like in a hot garage.

interesting......we trade this one in next month...I'm hoping it doesn't happen again.

We are not required to wear masks in the store - wish we were. I always wear one but usually only a handful of us wear one in my supermarket. I use hand gel after I load the car, then take off my mask and put it in a plastic bag. Then use hand gel again.

bearcountrygg on 06/15/2020:
Me too......the mask doesn't bother me at all....talked to daughter in law yesterday and she said she can't breathe in her mask...so she isn't wearing it.....I worry about her...she has a form of muscular Dystrophy and lung fibrosis....

You are 40 degress in Michigan? SE Michigan hits the 90's during the day now. But 55 at night.

We are at 45 right now at almost 8:00 A.M........and it's been staying chilly......but then again I'm in the upper east side of the lower penninsula....Tent worms are all over here right now...and we have 2 trees that are so confused they are turning orange....LOL
