Easter morning found me in bed until 6:30! Sleeping in again! When I got up, first thing I did (almost) was measure. I’ve lost an inch and a quarter since the last time I measured which was three weeks ago. I weighed in at 133 lubs.

I did all my exercises. Breakfast was OJ and a banana/spinach smoothie. It was getting a little late in the morning by that time so I hurried and put on the well-known bikini and went out to sun for 1/2 hour.

When I came in, I had a couple of tomatoes with Tajin. Later, I had another smoothie. This time, it was bananas and romaine.

I’ve been working on getting the compost pile to the point where I can use some of it. The VitaMix that was sitting in the cabinet, unused, is chopping up my garbage prior to being added to the pile. I have so much! There are banana peelings, orange rinds, watermelon rinds, cucumber peelings, tomato skins, and the list goes on and on. I was going to give the VitaMix away at one time, to the people who were supposed to move my furniture over from the other house but I’m glad I didn’t. I’m not glad it isn’t moved, though…

My daughter called and we visited for an hour and a half. It was good to get caught up. We hadn’t had a chance to talk for a couple of weeks.

After that, I had some watermelon. This one isn’t as good as the other one or maybe sitting for a week didn’t help it. After that, it was more tomatoes with Tajin. Then I made a salad that was too big. A woman on the Yahoo forum was talking about putting her salad in a food processor and chopping it up. It wasn’t bad but I still couldn’t finish it.

Since it was Easter, I made some “meatballs” from the Maw in the Raw blog. She has a ton of recipes on there. They are based a lot on nuts and use things that I’m trying to stay away from but I figured the “meatballs” without the Braggs would be okay. They turned out to be not too tasty. I ate one and wish I hadn’t. I made some cashew gravy (cashews, water, sea salt, onion powder) and it was pretty good. I’m going to try to salvage the “meatballs” but I have no idea how. I ate a couple of pods of durian so it was still a celebration. One caution about the blog–if you are on dialup, it will take a LONG time to load because it is full of pictures.

Somewhere in there, my brother-in-law called with a computer question and I was on the phone with him until almost 9 when his cell phone died. I got online and e-mailed him so when he called back on the land line, he got CallWave. He said he was going to hang it up for tonight, anyway. I got to talk to my sister, too.

I’m sitting here, yawning, so I guess I should hang this up and go to bed. My SIL is sending me info about yurts. My husband and I had looked at them once upon a time. They can be beautiful. We were reading about them in “Mother Earth News”. There was no getting online then.

Good night!

    Well, my interim goal is 120 lbs. BTW, when I was a kid, I thought lbs. should be pronounced “lubs”. When I get to 120, I’ll probably have another goal. We’ll see.

    As for yurtworks, that’s the site my SIL sent me! Beautiful!
