Seems the weeks fly by. The days at work crawl so how does that happen?
I’d promised I was going to EAT last Sabbath. It didn’t turn out that way. Still little appetite. I drank OJ but the oranges I got that are so rich and sweet are too rich and sweet. I haven’t been able to handle much of the juice. I thought I could, maybe, drink it 16 ozzies at a time instead of a quart but no way. I’ve been drinking more grapefruit juice. A few nights ago, I said my weight was down to 113 on my official weigh-in day. We’ll see what it is tomorrow.
Sunday was beautiful. I hung laundry outside, worked a bit in the yard, and sunned for more than 30 minutes. It was the kind of day that I love but it scares the bejeebers out of me, too. I don’t want the fruit trees to bud out again and get killed. When my daughter called, I went out again to sun but gave up and came in. By then, it had gotten cooler and a stiff breeze had picked up.
Monday, it was back to work and I got bank and post office duty in the morning only. The roadside market man was in town with beautiful strawberries. I indulged then and once again yesterday. Except for two pints, they are gone. I shared the first with my neighbors and a couple of pints went to one of the girls at the hospital. So…I haven’t eaten them all.
The week has been the endless round of getting up, going to work, coming home, going to bed, and on and on. I have gotten back (slowly) into exercising and I’m doing better eating.
Snow is predicted for tonight. We are supposed to get anywhere from 1-3″. Big whoop. We used to get deep snows and get snowed in for, sometimes, a couple of weeks. No more. I’d love to have a big ‘un before the winter is over but it doesn’t look like it will happen.
One landmark happening—I got my hair cut yesterday. Then I came home and cut it some more. Maybe between the two of us, I’ll get it like I want it. It’s hard to tell how long/short it is once she has curled it with the curling iron.
I have my veggies washed and cut up for the dinner tomorrow. The dip is waiting to see if the snow is enough to keep me home. I don’t want to make a whole lot and then have to eat it myself. If I don’t get to go, I’ll have to take the veggies to the hospital and put them out for the masses. There’s a lot of stuff I don’t usually eat—broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. I snacked on the cauliflower when I was fixing it and it’s just kind of sitting there in my stomach.
An Amber Alert just came across WeatherBug. A mother had left her six-month-old son in her car with the keys in the ignition while she ran into her mother’s house for a minute. She heard the car start and drive away. What a terrible thing to happen. The little boy was wearing a snow suit with teddy bear ears. Can you imagine the sinking feeling? I’m praying for all of them.
Earlier, there was a weather alert with a snow advisory. The winter storm warning had the whole state of Tennessee white. And now it’s pink with the Amber Alert.
It will be 9 pm in a couple of minutes. This is where I wish everyone a happy Sabbath and pray that little Elijah will be found safe and sound. Good night!
