I’m getting down to the wire here. Gotta be in bed soon!
The pastor had sent me information for the schedule for the campout this weekend so that took my exercise time. It’s done, printed, and I left it at the hospital for him to pick up whenever he got a round tuit. I don’t have to do the bulletin this week!
Breakfast was OJ and a banana/romaine smoothie. The grocery store has been out of baby spinach for forever so I’ll wait until my co-op order comes in to have anything other than romaine. That’s okay. I’m still getting all my vitamins and minerals and none of the oxalic acid that everyone keeps yelling about.
I didn’t take anything for my break. I did go out and sit in the sun–when it wasn’t hiding behind a cloud–for 15 minutes. I was plenty hungry when lunchtime rolled around. I had another banana/romaine smoothie and a large tomato. The nurse who had “counseled” me yesterday about my bowels came in with her fries and hamburger. I’ll have to admit that the burger had a limp piece of lettuce and a couple of thin slices of tomato. She was chowing down like there was no tomorrow. I looked at her and said, “I’m sorry. I should have saved some of my smoothie for you.” She looked kind of funny and then she laughed. People will eat all sorts of things but they don’t want really good-for-you food. Just because things can be chewed doesn’t mean they should be.
Mid-afternoon, I went out and basked in the sun for another 15 minutes. Now people are talking about how tan I’m getting but I don’t think I am. I have a little bit of color but it isn’t much. I plan to bare everything I can this weekend and get some sun on parts of my body that are still pretty pale. My legs, for instance.
I coerced my boss into giving me my mileage money for March so I could go to the store without having to write a check. I got four big heads of romaine. I’m polishing off one a day now. I also got some cucumbers and strawberries.
When I came home, I had a large piece of watermelon. The temp in the house was up to 78 but I let it stay that way while I had my melon. It was cold and the warm air felt good. Then I had a big container of chopped tomato with Tajin followed by a huge salad of romaine, cucumber, and avocado. I’d put the extra tomato in with my “chili”. That’s what tomato and Tajin tastes like.
I’m leaving my strawberries out of the fridge tonight. I don’t like cold berries. That’s kind of like putting tomatoes in the fridge. It ruins them.
Twinkle’s supply of food is supposed to be in tomorrow and the new base for my L’equip is scheduled for Monday. People are always interested in what I get in my packages. It isn’t the usual stuff from ABC Distributors. Not even close. I did get some raw olives recently that aren’t good at all but most of the time I bat 1,000.
Time to hit the hay!
