Good morning

Yesterday was a very good day for food and water.

Another beautiful day and yes I will be going out - not sure what I am going to do still too early to make major decisions like that after all I am only on my second cup of coffee....lol and I do not make any decision until about 11:00.

I do need a few vegetable that are on my shopping list but no major things on my list.  Sunshine is all I am really looking for today and it is out there.

Wishing you all a wonderful day and for all the workers it is almost Friday.

I am wishing YOU a wonderful day as well! If I were home, i'd probably only drink coffee and tea all morning and never wake up before ... 8...I want to say 9 though! so, 9am it is.

What veggies are you buying?

and it will be a happy Friday. I already told my boss that i'm leaving at 2pm! he told me that I shouldn't complain about working OT and not being paid then! LOL. I said that's fine then! no fighting, he was just trying to show me the consequences and that it seems i'm going to have days of OT ahead of me! not all at once though :) wahoo, my point is tomorrow i'm leaving at 2! wahoo!

Good morning

All is good at this end.

Great breakfast with brother and got some work done outside - clean of patio.  Today I want to do my windows and make sure my BBQ is ready for time I want to start BBQing. 

Apart from that the rest of the day will be spent outside since the weather is really nice today.  I will take advantage of it while we have it.

Wishing you all a great day.

The weather is exceptional this week over here, too! It's May weather in April! Sunny & no rain! till tomorrow I think. And it was almost 80 the other day! now it's back to nice springtime temps! :)

Good morning

Yesterday was a great food and water day.

Going out for breakfast with brother and s-i-l our regular outing.  My rib was bad last night woke up on my side and I don't even remember turning but it did me no favour of sleeping on it.  I know it will take some time just no patient for not feeling well.  This really messes up my life.... lol. 

Anyway not much else to report just a regular day for the rest of it.  I really have nothing else on my schedule except if I feel like it and feel good enough will do a little bit of clean at a much slower pace of course we do not want to injure myself any more than I am right now.

Wishing you all a great day.

I love that kind of schedule / day - where the activities & things I chose to do are by more own choice only (or at least it seems to be to me!) who knows, maybe the man above is guiding my every move - although I will never believe that! :)

I believe we choose are own destiny. Thankfully!!!!

puddles on 04/19/2016:
Of coarse we play a role in our choice but there is an old saying my Mon use to tell me "if you want to hear God laugh tell him your plan"

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

My rib is getting better but still have to sleep on my back instead of on my side and I can imagine the sound of my snoring at night thank God nobody has to put up with that.  I think that probably in another 3 or 4 days it will be back to normal but I will still have to be careful but not as careful as I am right now.

I went out today and picked up a few little things I needed for my salads sometimes they turn into a full meal these salads and that is ok since I incorporate my protein and dairy and everything but the kitchen sink. 

Apart from that today is a cloudy day and now it is relax time maybe even a afternoon nap who know.

Wishing you all a great day.

A full meal salad is the best!!!!!!! enjoy that sucker!

Cloudy, salad, nap..... All sounds good! We're in for record breaking high temps for a few days this week. WAY TOO EARLY here. 82 today :(

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

My rib is driving me crazy and no use going to hospital or dr. since they do nothing for ribs but do you guys have any idea how to help it heal faster some trick or any info I would gladly take it into consideration.

I hate not being able to do whatever I want everything is a big job I have to pre plan the smallest of jobs.

Would greatly appreciate any advise.

Wishing you all a great day.

What you described when you sneezed may be related to this type of injury??? See what you think:

Good Morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

I hurt one of my ribs I do that once in a while I sneezed too hard.  I think it is just bruised not broken but it sure hurts when I do just about anything it will take a week or so and then I will be as good as new.... lol

Today will be a day of pampering myself so not to injure myself anymore.... lol.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a little off but the train did not leave the tracks completely.  I have nothing planned for the next few days at least till Monday breakfast.  I am going out for coffee with a friend today but that is only coffee and that is very safe grounds. 

The girls are just so darn crazy don't know how we all worked together and got any work done.  These are decades long friends.... precious people to me. 

I am tired today not that I was out late but laughing to the point of crying for 4 to 5 hrs did tire me out.  Our stories never get old. 

I do not need to cook today I can manage with leftovers and my soup & salad & protein. 

Nothing else new.

Wishing you all a great day.

Have a Safe Coffee.

puddles on 04/15/2016:
No new from you Raven how are you doing is everything ok with you.

grannyannie on 04/15/2016:
Coffee is easy. Just ignore the sweets at the counter! :)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/15/2016:
Enjoy the coffee & yes agreed - coffee is always safe (and fun!) grounds...

I love "forever friends." The ones you can always count on to have a good time with. But additionally, I have learned that "forever friends" should also be friends that you can rely on to support you. Because once a friend lets you know that they are unsupportive of your dreams/lifestyle if you think it's the best for you but they don't agree (as long as it's healthy)...if they don't support something that is ok & healthy it's time to drop those people as friends.

As long as what you are doing is healthy & not harming you or anyone else, I've learned (basically these past 2 years only), that were what great friends once have to be unfortunately dropped. It's so sad when that happens!

Anyways, I also love getting together with my forever friends. It never gets old with them & we can be as silly as we want to. Unconditional love!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Tonight I am going out with the girls... lol... funny to say girls it is more like the senior's club meeting.... lol but we see each other still as in pass in our late 20s...   Dinner out with the old girls..... it is at one of my favorite place and theirs also and I know what I will be having the Chicken brochette with salad and it is absolute delish... falls right into my food category.

Apart from that not other great endeavour today.

Wishing you all a great day.


PS ---- pick up all my vegetable to make my magic soup today and I am just waiting for it to start boiling and will just let it go for about 4 hours.  It has always been a life saver for me when I get hungry and love to keep it in stock in the house.

I certainly will it is given with my girlfriends around. Thank you.

HOLLYBELLE on 04/14/2016:
What is this magic soup you speak of?

puddles on 04/14/2016:
I am sure you guys have all seen it before 1 Lipton ch. noddle soup/4 cups water 6 little green onions chopped 5 large carrots 2 green peppers 2 can green beans 10 stocks of celery chopped 1 large cabbage (I use Nappa)just prefer it but I also have done it with plain cabbage 2 cans Stewed tomatoes 1 19 oz can tomatoe juice 1 box of veg. broth 1 cup of Salsa Medium

seasoning - salt, pepper, thype, rosemary, and whatever else you would like to put in (this is where you make it to your liking as far as taste)

Simmer until all is cooked and you can eat this as often as you want and as much as you want all these ingredients burn each other off.

I have lost 3 or 7 lb a month in the beginning eating as much as I wanted of this along with my meals.

season lik

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/15/2016:
Your magic soup recipe sounds so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would love that soup. You do good Fran...delicious!

I hope you enjoyed your time out with the ladies & i'm going to look up what that chicken dish is. Have a great day today!

Believe it or not, since you've been back home, you sound even happier.

puddles on 04/15/2016:
I try to be pretty well rounded when it comes to being happy - the alternative I find is totally futile in my eyes. Brochette of Ch. is a kabob of Ch. - ch. on stick with vegetables.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/15/2016:
just reading your comment back now while at work....yum....I actually said out loud "Mmmm...That sounds good!"

Good morning

Yesterday was definitely low on food and low on water simply because I slept most of the day and did not have a schedule on the food just made a salad with protein something easy and fast to make.

Today need to go to the store running low on fresh veg which is my lifeline and thank God I love my veggies... they are a life saver plus they can be done to be absolutely tempting and fulfilling.

Overall a quiet day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning guys

Yesterdays was an unusual day.

Around 11 yesterday my boyfriend e-mailed me that he had to go to Calgary and that he had a pit stop in Toronto for one night so he offered to fly me out with him spend the evening in Toronto and the next morning he would go on to Calgary and he would fly  me back to Ottawa - why not a wonderful night away dinner out and a few drinks.....  lol ....  so I am back today and I have to admit a little tired and a little hung over....  

That is about it for me for today.
