Saturday really was sort of a jumble. It was an “I don’t feel like doing anything” day. That’s pretty much what I did.
After coming home from Weight Watchers, I did some computer work: posting to BCDC, reading blogs, paying bills. All necessary things. Ralph hadn’t been feeling well the night before so I let him sleep in.
Our plan was to go to Ele’s for the wonderful leftover dinner, but she was out for the day with Jim and Little Michael, so I didn’t want to eat a lot during the day, I knew what was coming. That’s been part of my problem the last few weeks. I haven’t been eating regular meals. I need to get back on track with that to get off this weight I’ve put on. I can do it. Knowing the reason is the first most important step, now I have to do it. I have a plan and will share as I go.
When I got hungry, I had one of my new favorite things in the whole world…
Honeycrisp and almond butter, or sunflower seed butter, or…. It’s a filling and tasty treat. It’s not a meal though. Got to get back on track with that.
In the afternoon, I started a project that is inspired by the writing I’ve been doing. I’ll share that soon as well.
We heard from Ele that they would be home soon and we headed over to her house around 4:30. We’re pretty laid back about our leftover feasts. We lay out all of the food on the counter. We each take our plate, fill it with our choices and then take turns with the microwave. It works out pretty well. I had two plates that looked pretty much like this…
Mashed potatoes covered in succotash. You may not think it looks appetizing, but it’s delicious! I had salad with it too, but you see plenty of salads on BCDC, this is far more interesting…at least to me! 😉
I had another piece of Ele’s wonderful apple cake. I need that recipe. I’ll share it and see if we can lighten it up a bit.
Little Michael had a good day. On their adventure he acquired a new friend…
This is actually a puppet. It looks so real that it startled me several times. I walked into the room and jumped thinking I was seeing a real dog. It is very cool. If he told me what he named it, I forget. In fact, he had it with him in a restaurant that afternoon and people sitting near them were looking at him strangely thinking he had a real dog!
We had a lovely evening, looked at some old pictures. We found some that I should have had for Halloween…you should have seen the costumes! It was lots of fun.
We’re off to a birthday party Today which should be fun. I’ll share all of that with you tomorrow. But first, last night’s sunset. I can’t get enough.
