We've been under heat advisories here in S.C. with heat indexes up to 111 recently. Even with the ac going in the house, it is warm at around 80 inside. About all it can do, ha. Glad it can even do that. We've been having storms that have taken down large tree limbs in the back yard. Lots of debris all over yards, too.
Took Daughter to Surgeon yesterday...she is to have her big surgery week after next. Please pray that all goes well. She will be preregistering at the hospital where she will be having it done with general anesthesia next week. Sorry I cannot go into details, for her privacy' sake.
Hubby is still recovering from his injury that happened earlier this year, but he is continuing to get better.
Thank you for your prayers for him, too.
Snowball is doing well currently. He says hello..."Meow!!!"
Weight is 160 this morning. Changed my goal weight number to 150.
Here in SC, are currently under a heat warning with temps expected over 100 and heat index around 111 to 112 this afternoon. It is very humid, too. So, thanking the Lord for air conditioning.
Hubby is better and still healing from his accident with wood-chopping a few weeks ago,
and Daughter is to have surgery next week. Appreciate your prayers.
My Hubby's beloved cat passed away last nite. He was only four years old and so sweet and his name was Simon. He was the brother to my cat, Snowball. They almost looked like twins, being flame-point Siamese cats.
It is a pretty, sunny, warm day here in SC. High to be in the low 90s F.
We are going to have a cook-out on the back deck! We always do a clean on the gas grill even though we clean it after each use, too, and always before we use it, so that is now checked off...it is clean, clean, clean...also we took the umbrella that was over the patio table and cleaned it both sides and sprayed with the water hose and it is air-drying in the sunshine, awaiting to be put back over the table, which has also been cleaned, as we are hoping to eat outside after the hamburgers are done, depending on the FLIES...our neighbor close to us has many outside animals including pig, pony, dogs, etc...so we'll see how it goes with flies...also, I am planning to fry fresh squash, onion, and potatoes together to go with the grilled hamburgers and grill bell peppers, too. Ice cream for dessert.
Hubby is improving from his accident earlier this month and thank you for your prayers for his healing. Meanwhile, Daughter was injured by one of the horses she takes care of daily and I ask you to please pray for her healing, too. Thank you all very much.
Hubby got hurt in an accident here at home. He is improving. Please remember him in prayer...It is his leg...he was splitting wood with a maul (axe) from trees that were taken down recently, and a big piece flew into his leg...caused a very large blood-filled hematoma about the size as his knee...went to urgent care...got sent to ER...was there 8 hours...no broken bones...sent home with 'RICE' care instructions...rest, ice, compression bandaging, and elevation...it has been almost 2 weeks now and very slow improvement going on but better than he was...hematoma not as large but his leg is purple and yellow...Thank you for your prayers.
Good morning, Friends. Have a cup of coffee with me?
It is a chilly and SUNNY morning over here in South Carolina. Was in the upper 30s earlier, to get into the upper 60s this afternoon. I took my mug of hot, black coffee out onto the back deck and sat at the patio table this morning, sipping it, while looking at one of our rosebushes nearby, which has gotten quite a few red roses already in bloom on it. The little potato garden that I planted is doing pretty well...large green plants now...the white potatoes, that is, as the sweet potatoes are not up yet. It is in the back yard, too. As an experiment, I planted some green bean seeds in a different location just to see what they will do, as my plantings of them have not done well in past years (mainly because of floods). Also, in painted, colorful, raised, wooden garden boxes that Hubby built for me a few years ago, there are lots of tiny strawberries on many of the strawberry plants in a couple of the boxes, so we should be getting strawberries next month sometime.
Well...I am at '159' this morning. I rowed forward instead of backward...how about that?...
Good morning, Friends. Have a cup of coffee with me?
It is a chilly and RAINY morning over here in South Carolina.
Well...I am at '163' this morning. I rowed backwards instead of forwards, Y'all. So...
I've been reading some of what I wrote here at DD in my 2015 entries...my weight got up to 172 early that year...Too much ice cream and other sweets as well as overeating...same as has been going on now...but...that same year, within 9 months, I lost '28' pounds and got down to 144. Yes, 28 pounds, which is an average of almost 3 pounds a month for nine months. So....If I lose 3 pounds a month, weighing 163 today, I would be at 139 in 8 months (instead of 9 months) in losing 24 pounds (8 months x -3/month =-24), which would be about a week before Christmas. I'd settle for 140, actually. So, let's just say 140 for me (I'm tall, 5'8"). I've been at goalweight 140 probably 3 times, only to throw it away for the 'taste' of sweets and for comforting myself when sad about anything, with FOOD. I do not need to be overweight for health reasons. Although I would probably be fine at 150 weight, it would be 'too easy' for me to quickly regain at that weight (too tempting), so I am now as of today making my goalweight 140 again. I did it before: I can do it again!
Gotta keep rowing! FORWARD not backwards!
I had about 2900 calories yesterday....Need I say more?...
