The sunrise is looking pretty dark, yet, and I haven't heard the forecast for the day. I'm hoping it's clear and dry, though, for Audrey & Maggie's Field Day. I'll be spending most of the day at the school, helping out and cheering my girls on.
Last night we finally got the storm that had been threatening all day so I won't have to water the gardens this morning. I had my first zucchini from the garden yesterday, and it was divine!
I just heard the weather and it's supposed to be hot and muggy with a slight chance of rain, but it's looking pretty ominous out there right now.
Cottage - the rest of my family was floating on the creek when that storm hit...I was a bit nervous!! At least it was a short one. I just had my first batch of turnip greens out of our garden, and "divine" is a great word for them.
I tried a new salad (for me) out of the recipe section, Black Bean w/jicama salad, it is delish!! I am looking forward to having it with lunch. I made a big pot of black beans yesterday, and have lots of plans for them .
The boss is out of town this week, so I just can't wait until it's over!!
It looks ominous here too, but I think the rain will hold off for the rest of the day or at least that's what they are saying. It's looking to be a fairly slow week at work so I'll take some time to prepare some things for next semester - update forms, etc. I think I need to go through my books too (they've multiplied considerably, and I'm now in the position where I'm reading multiple books at one time which makes me feel very scattered).
Good morning. Rain in the forecast here too - 60%! Too bad because today is a free day and I could have planted. My garden may never dry out. My zucchini plants are still on the potting table in their wee pots so save me a zuke or two, Cottage. Clay soil is impossible to work when wet.
Anyhow I need to spend time in the house on tidying and laundry. I have two dogs who are suffering from lack of attention lately. Disney is barking way too much and doing her rescue dog circling and pacing and Jazz is just way too "jazzed" up.
The fish fry dinner yesterday was great - and I'm not a fish person. Yes, I went off programme but today I will focus on me and clean eating. Tomorrow's book club luncheon is the last "food" event of the week. In the country, every event involves a "lunch". It must hark back to times when it took hours to travel anywhere.
Hope your Monday is calm, peaceful and healthy.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
Today is my last Monday of this school year.
I have soooo much to do before my last Friday of the school year though...
Fergie and I got so much done at my mom's this weekend, and as always it was great to spend time with her and with my sister and nephews. We celebrated Ferg's birthday with an oreo ice cream cake.... and someone ate way more than a 'modest serving'. It was pretty tasty though so I've got no regrets. I have to get my teeth cleaned today and that's something I really, really don't enjoy. I'll just close my eyes and think about that ice cream cake while she's digging and poking and polishing.
Twynn, I'm glad your family was OK during that storm yesterday! It really came down hard!
Matilda, I'm glad you are Beachin' again!
Ruth, have a great day lavishing Disney and Jazz with lots of attention. I hope the rain holds off today and your garden starts drying out so you can finally get your planting done!
Heidi, what a coincidence! I was looking at the ads in the Sunday paper last night and was drooling over the picture of an Oreo ice cream cake at Cold Stone Creamery! At least I can't gain weight from a picture, lol! This is the last week of school for all our kids, too, and I feel sorry for the teachers trying to keep the excitement in check.
Morning all. Stayed up too late last night watching "Treme", but worth it.
Sun is shining here and I can just feel the steam coming off of the bricks on the patio. It's gonna be a hot one.
No plans for the day, just waiting for whatever comes along other than laundry. My dryer broke once again and we've decided to just go ahead and bite the bullet and start looking for a new one. I hate to spend money on stuff that's not fun!

Hello and happy monday! I've just discovered the batteries on my scale are dead. I wonder if it has been weighing me heavy or light lately?? Maybe I don't even wanna know. I think I'm going to toss the thing out the window and worry about healthy eating instead of caring about what I look or what the scale says. (yeah if I could do that I wouldn't have daily weigh-ins lol)
But other than that, this it should be a wonderful day. I hope everyone has a great day too.
Hi everyone! We had a busy weekend. We went to Disney World again, this time to celebrate the end of the school year. I went off program a little, but I'm jumping right back in. I'm been good about getting in exercise, today I went to Curves and did an exercise video!! Hopefully, I'll have some good habits developed by the end of the summer.
I'm pretty tired of the heat here. We just aren't getting any rain and it seems like it just keeping getting hotter and hotter.
Goal for 9/1: 209.5
Progress toward my final goal (started 4/26/2010):
I weigh myself everyday, but only update tickers on Saturday.
One carrot for every 10 pounds:
Finally made myself get into the ol' swimsuit. With a hurt foot, swimming is the best way I can think to get some excercise. Dh wants to head to the pool everyday. We'll see how long that lasts. Spent a couple of hours there with the little man in tow and headed back to eat some curry chicken salad ans roasted squash. yummo. Debating a nap now, but it's so late in the day. Did I mention how mixed up our schedules are due to being on summer break?
