Talking

Good Evening! Rain, rain, and more rain today . . . which we DON'T need! My furnace is running pretty steady this evening. Jason and Amanda took Beth's kids with them to the lake yesterday and we drove up (in the rain) to see them today. This was Beth's weekend to work so she and Will stayed home. The kids are old enough to entertain themselves, Amanda and I worked on a jigsaw puzzle, while Bob and Jason critiqued (?) golfers on tv. We hadn't planned to stay overnight and when we were leaving Jason and Amanda decided to pack up and go home too. Needless to say I haven't done squat at home today.

Maggie -- Hope your bread turned out lighter today! The rabbit and bear charms sound like good choices.

Susan -- Glad Andrea behaved herself in your area. I'm sorry that your off plan food didn't agree with you. That's is a great reason to stay op with foods that your tummy likes. I have a "to do" list started for tomorrow!

I'm heading off to bed. Hope you all have a super Sunday and enjoy!

Good morning, ladies! The sun is shining and it'll be in the high 80s this day. Casper and I will wait until after dinner to go for our walk. Humidity is just a bit high. I noticed the ground is all spongy from the rain we had the past week (and more on the way) when I took the recycling out this morning.

I went to early Mass and came home and read the paper then made hard boiled eggs, a relish tray (I have one with 5 divisions and I fill it on Sunday so veggies are all ready for the week), made some pasta salad. I found a local store that has high protein, low carb pasta - 130 calories, 20 grams of protein, 7 grams of carb, and 2 g. of fiber. It cooks up to about 1-1/2 cups of pasta so I added lots of veggies and a couple of hard boiled eggs and called it 2 servings. I'll take some to Applique Bee tomorrow for my lunch and then have some for lunch a work this week. I've got chicken breasts thawing that I'm going to bake with rotisserie seasoning so they'll be ready for salads, etc.
I love cooking ahead.

Jean, I know how you feel about the rain. Water is standing all over but everything is sure green - and my grass is growing very fast.

Hi, Maggie!

Safe trip home, Faye!

Have a wonderful day.

Good Afternoon, Flowers! It's another rainy crappy day in my neighborhood. The rain gauge said .8" for yesterday and .11" so far today. The weatherman lied again -- said there would be sunshine today. We went to church because I had to pick up the money. We stopped in during the coffee hour so I could check on where the coffee money would be; got stopped as I walked past a couple tables and got an earful of everything wrong in the office and church in general. Like I can do anything but pass the info along. We ate late and I just realized the afternoon is almost gone.

Susan -- I would love some 80 degree weather! The Weather Bug says it is 60 here, feels cold and clammy! A mental picture of you and Casper going for a walk makes me . At Ian's ball game last week, a "grandpa" came walking down the sidewalk with the cutest pink stroller. As he got closer, Zowie wanted a peek at the baby. The baby turned out to be a tiny black puppy! The stroller was decorated with paw prints which I couldn't see as he walked towards us. It has rained so hard some of my flowers are bent over, but everything is really green. I've never heard of high protein low carb pasta, so will look for it. Does it have a different taste? I could eat pasta salad every day.

I have laundry to do so had better get a move on. The weekends fly by too fast! Hope you all are enjoying a nice day.

Talking Marvelous Monday ~ Weigh Day


GOOD AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫


We have been out and about and still there are just two baby buffalo. The other two moms are getting BIG so it can be any time. It is 104º here this day and they were very close to their water source. We had the dogs with us since we had just picked them up from the groomer and they smelled so good and behaved and didn’t bark at the buffalo. They usually have their “come play with us” bark going but we were thankful they were quiet today. They are out in the front room supervising Will as he is yanking up the carpet in that room. Cecil gave them “what for” when they came into the back yard when we got back. He is so funny scolding them for being gone. I wonder how much of his cat talk they understand.

I weighed the same on my scale this morning so I am not expecting to show a loss at WW this evening. I guess I didn’t do so well this week for I wasn’t faithful in my tracking. I always do my best when I write what I bite and somehow got out of the habit. I have got to do better this coming week. I guess I am just one of those people that does have to write everything down that goes between my lips for me to show a weight loss. Write it if I bite it. Bad Habit Rabbit has had a field day and Barely Bare it all Bear needs to get a grip. I have told all this to myself before while going down this road to thin and probably this won’t be the last time either. I surely do not want to show a gain at the scale this evening and can handle a “maintain” so much better.

JEAN You have sure gotten the rain. We would like some more. Isn't it just the way it is that folks complain to someone that really dosn't have anything to do with what they are complaining about.

SUSAN Our apple tree is sure going to make a good harvest for there are lots of golf ball szed apples on it. We hung foil strips to keep the birds out and sprayed it earlier to keep the bugs off. Our tomatoe plants are covered with blossoms and tiny tomatoes. All is well so far. What a neat idea to use that relish tray to divy out your food for a few days. What brand is the pasta you spoke about?

DONNA FAYE I hope all is well with you.

LATER: I am now back from weighing in and I ended up showing a loss of 0.8. However, I am still going to write what I bite.

Hope all are having a lovely day.

Good Evening, Flowers! We started with a gloomy day but the sun came out this afternoon and there was NO wind. Beautiful! The morning flew by even though we aren't counting money until tomorrow; the pastor's wife is coming to help as in the blind leading the blind on that one! This afternoon I made two trips to the hospital; one to pick up money and one to take back checks I wrote to pay bills. I am tired tonight and the rat race week is just getting started. We are supposed to go to Ian's game tomorrow night.

Maggie -- Wish I could send some rain to you! It's in the forecast again -- showers and/or thunderstorms every day through next weekend. Hope the iron monster was kind to you tonight!

I am heading for bed! Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday tomorrow!

Good morning, ladies! Rain and thunderstorms today. We had a tornado sighting last night. It supposed to keep up all week again. I want sun!

Tonight is our quilt guild meeting and we have an out of town speaker. I'm taking a class on machine applique from her on Saturday.

Since you both asked about the pasta I use, it isn't available in grocery stores. Its called Proti Pasta and is actually sold for bariatric products. We have a large nationally know bariatric surgery center here and they have a store that sells to the general public as well as their patients. When I was talking with my research study counselor I was lamenting the absence of low carb foods in the grocery store and she told me about this place and uses their products herself and thought they were very good. I get the pasta, a proti-max cafe latte that has 20g protein and only 110 calories, 2 net carbs, and I just got some of their protein chips and pretzels to try - 15g of protein per package and 8 net carbs for 120 calories. The stuff is pricey but I checked it out on Amazon and other online places charge about the same plus shipping. I never use my weekly grocery allotment from the study and I can use some of it for this stuff. They are having an ice cream social at the store next Monday from 4-7 and I plan to go see what that is about. I also got a bag of the Miracle Noodles - 0 calories, 0 carbs, 0 protein, 0 fat - they are all fiber but have the texture of white pasta. I tried them and liked them a lot. I order an assortment of them on Amazon to have on hand. You have to rinse them well before using, boil 1 minute and then add to your sauce or however you are going to use them. They have no taste so take on that of whatever you add them to. These are not the same as the Shirataki Noodles that Hungry Girl uses all the time.

Jean, your weather is just like mine. I sometimes feel I'm on the go more since I quit working than before.

Maggie, I hope the scale was kind to you last night. I'm one who has to keep my food journal every day or the scale starts creeping up. It's got to be second nature to me. I'm getting anxious to hear about more baby buffalo.

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning ladies! Back home and finishing up laundry and such. I pretty much have everything put back and only laudnry to put away at this juncture. My poochy is sick so I am fighting to get antibiotics in him. He could have found something in one of the hotels we stayed at with him. He is sensitive so it might just have been the trip as a whole. He did wonderfully but could be just unfamiliar stuff and being in the hotel alone from time to time.

It is 105 heat index today so I am hoping Jack doesn't have to work in it. I am keeping my nose in the house for sure.

We had a great time. Here is dad and Jackson showing off his cake. They had a bouncy house and thank goodness because there were a ton of kids that came. The adults hung out and ate and drank. I of course got sunburned even though I sat in the shade all day. Had a great time with my girlfriend too. We caught up on everything I think.

I did have a mishap on Saturday morning. The hotel had a couch/sofabed and it sat really low to the ground and was tough for me to get up off of because of my knee. I asked Jack to help me because my feet were swollen a bit and my calves and he took my hands and pulled me to my feet but I was barefoot and my left foot slid on the carpet and I fell and whacked my left knee really hard. I then had a heck of a time getting off the floor because everything sat low to the ground to use as leaverage. I finally told Jack to get the computer chair and I rolled onto my stomach and got up on my knees which was excruciating one bad one, one bruised on, and put my arms through the chair arms and picked myself up that way. Jack was just beside himself all day though I told him he didn't drop me or make me fall. I have a purple bruise on the knee and shoulders and such are still sore but I am fine.

We got our resort pass for our Jamaica excursion so one out of the way. This is a Hilton resort and you pay a flat price for transportation and all day at the resort, pools (whooopeeee,) the ocean, all the food you want at either their buffet, restaurant, or pool cafe, a water park, all drinks including alcohol is included also and they have a shuttle to island shopping. It is an all day affair so should be fun.

I will do individuals tomorrow. I need to get back to cleaning my dirty house. Faye

Good Afternoon, Flowers! The sun is shining, it's windy, and humid -- strange weather! It was crazy in the office this morning! The pastor's wife came to help count money and we thought we balanced ok after a few false totals. She left and I tried to do my part on the computer only to have that not balance with the original totals. I finally called the secretary and she said to lock it in the file and she would try to figure it out when she comes back next week. While I'm making copies of all the checks, a member comes in wanting 50 copies of 5 pages he has hand written in teeny tiny letters. His marbles don't all run in a straight path although he lives on his own and does odd jobs for money. I stopped what I was doing and talked him into letting me do the pages back to back to cut down on the amount of paper. He had to staple them because our copy machine doesn't do that. It is a slow copier and seemed to take forever; he's talking the whole time we are in the copy room! We had mothers coming in to register for Bible School, phone calls for the director, and lucky for me the mail lady didn't bring any bills that I had to deal with today.

Susan -- I'm sending some sunshine your way, just a bit though because I still want some! I wish we had more unique grocery shopping opportunities like you do. Our stores are pretty plain and simple. I know you will enjoy your quilt guild and the class on Saturday. Are you officially done working at the office now?

"Gma" -- I'm so sorry Fortune isn't feeling well. Hope he is back to his old self soon! I also hope your bruises and soreness from you fall, are gone asap. I imagine your knee will take awhile to get back to normal. How can your house be dirty when you've been gone? Thanks for sharing the picture! It's hard to believe how fast Jackson has grown up.

I need to make a grocery list; today is 20 cents off a gallon if I spend $20 which won't be hard to do. I'm just not in the mood to grocery shop. We decided to go to Ian's Thursday game so Beth and the kids could go with us. It will be a late night but I'll have Friday to sleep a little later.

Hope you all are having a nice day. Enjoy your evening!

Talking Titilating Hot Tuesday


GOOD AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫



It is in the 100ºs today and expected to be 108º by 5 PM this day. I’d say that we had a very short spring if any. We had just a few showers on a hot day and called it spring. Since it will be a hot day we won’t be working outside much.

I came back last evening after WW and being out to dinner and posted my 0.8 loss but I guess you gals missed it. I am still jazzed about the loss and have my “write what I bite” booklet opened up on my desk all ready to post in. We had a nice dinner with our little friend and got to meet his older brother that is here now to attend this university. He had been living with his grandparents on their ranch and has been cowboying. We are finding out that family is quite well heeled. The two of them will be living in one of the houses the family owns here in town. We’ll see how that works out. We were glad to meet the brother for he has a good head on his shoulders which will help to keep the younger brother in check.


Will just about has all the carpet up off the front room floor and has gone to pick up the flooring. He is taking it up in strips so it will fit into the trash cans. He will take the carpet up all along the hallway and then the only two rooms with carpet in them will be his office and our bedroom. He will later take up the carpet in his office and replace it with the flooring boards. The reason I have the flooring here in my office/shop is because of my glasswork. So much easier to sweep what gets on the floor when I am working than to vacuum it. Plus the chemicals I use would be hard on a carpet.

We went to lunch at Applebee’s and I only had a couple bites and was full. I sure don’t consume the volume I used to. We went to visit the buffalo and there are still just too little female calf’s that are so active. They frolic about and then their mothers have to wander off where they are to keep an eye on them.

DONNA FAYE back. Hope your injuries that you receivd while gone are healed up soon. I can't beleve you have much house cleaning since you cleaned it spick and span before you left. Surely you must be kidding.

JEAN What an intertainment you had with that eldely gentleman. Wonder why he needed so many copies ~ a will or something of the sort. We have been having unusual weather also or maybe it is usual.

SUSAN How nice for you to have that sorce of good food in your neihborhood. Maybe it will catch on elsewhere so folks who are health conscious can get it. I am very happy for your being able to get it.

Hope all are having a lovely day.

Good morning to you all. It is going to be close to 100 degrees today and from what I read, looks like Jean and Maggie are going to get hit with a pretty bad storm today so take care.

I am working more on the house bit by bit. The ac can't keep up with this kind of heat so the outer rooms are warmer than in the living room etc. Trying to cook things that won't heat up the kitchen is hard but I am working around that.

I fixed Fortune 3 scrambled eggs with a chopped up hot dog and he ate all that so I am hoping I can get him back to eating his regular food. He hasn't eaten in 3 days and he has lost weight, which worries me more than the not eating. He isn't lethargic, but I am watching his water intake especially.

I am hoping Jack only has indoor work to do again today. I had him take 6 bottles of water and he drank 3 glasses of water before leaving for work today. I told him to run by the store and buy a case of water after work as we are getting low on water. This heat is going to last for awhile it looks like.

Jean: When we left Memphis our gas was $3.17 a gallon. As we traveled north it got higher and higher and in South Bend it was $4.25 a gallon! Our gas went up to $3.29 yesterday but nothing close to what we paid up north. Hope everything with the church count got straightened out. I always come back home feeling crummy shopping wise. They have a local family owned group of groceries up there and the one closest to the hotel we stayed at is huge and has all kinds of fresh areas, ie, deli, bakery, butcher shop, cheese shop, liquor store, and on and on besides aisles of grocery products. We have such crappy shopping, Krogers, Walmart, a super Target but that is limited choices, and we have a Fresh Marke and Whole Foods but that is mainly specialty stuff.

Maggie: Sounds like you all have been busy. I will surely be glad when we start our flooring in a couple years. Since we decided on tile that looks like wood it will surely make it much easier to clean.

Well, I have work that is waiting. You all have a great day. Faye

Good Afternoon, Flowers! We had sunshine this morning but now it is hazy and quite humid. It feels like a change in the weather, as in storm, could happen any minute. The office was busy again this morning. I thought maybe it wouldn't be and I could spend some time looking over the contribution money that didn't balance. I don't like having money out in the main office where people just walk in and can see it. I went to lunch bunch and then back to process the checks written over the noon hour, took them to the post office, and now have an hour before I'm off to a P.E.O. meeting back at my church. It's finger foods at 5:15, where we usually have a dessert at a 7:00 meeting. Should be interesting.

Maggie -- 100+ degrees is TOO hot! on showing another loss! You are right, I didn't see it on/in your post. The gentleman from church is not elderly. I'm guessing he would be in his 30s, but I'm no judge of age either. He is pleasant and always would leave envelopes of change around the church. His dad was a Methodist minister so he tithes 10% of whatever he earns on a job. At least now he brings the money to the office or on Sundays, we get an offering envelope with "tithe" written at the top but never his name. When I first met him he asked my name, and when I told him, his comment was, "I can remember that! Tony Bennett!" I told Bob not to be surprised if he gets called Tony sometime.

"Gma" -- You and Maggie can keep your 100 degree weather! I had to at Fortune eating scrambled eggs and a hot dog! Good for him! You are a good dog mom! Our gas just went down to $3.62 a couple days ago. The last time Bob put gas in his pickup he saved $.52 a gallon from what I had bought at the grocery store. That adds up for 20 gallons.

I need to figure out something to wear for tonight, or may just leave on what I wore to "work." Hope you all enjoy your evening!

Talking Hot Wednesday


GOOD AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫


It is 11:25 pm and It is currently 79ºs and got to well over 100ºs today here in the ♥-Land and thank goodness the humidity level is low so it makes it much more pleasant. There are still just two buffalo babies when we visited the group this day and the little ones are still frolicking about while their moms munch grass. It is so fun to see them growing bigger each visit.

Well we got the carpet taken up clear down the hallway now and what a mess underneath it all to be vacuumed up. Cutting it out in strips and then rolling them up we were able to stick them in the outdoor trash can for them to be picked up which sure makes them easier for us to handle also. The easy to keep clean laminate wood look flooring comes in 6 inch by 4 feet long sections ~ the width of 3 boards, each with a different look in the wood look grain. We researched this and wood flooring and chose this because of its resistance to abuse especially since we won’t be the last ones to live in this house. The flooring here in my office still looks great and we put it in here a long while ago. The dining room had it in there before we moved in here.

My appetite is not what it used to be. For lunch I had the smallest burger that Bergerking® makes without sauce and only ate half of it along with 3 fries. Last evening at Applebees® I only ate a few bites of cole slaw and a couple of shrimp and had the rest of the meal put in to go boxes. I hope that Applebees® gets the neat half of sandwich and salad or soup entrees here soon.

DONNA FAYE There wasn't a bad storm predicted in our area ~ we had fluffy white clowds dotting a beautiful blue sky this day. We would welcome some rain though. The gas prices are $3.52 a gallon here in this area. I would not like to see it up to $4. Sounds like you cooked your little dog a delcious meal with eggs and hot dog.

JEAN oops it sounded like he was up in age and not just a yongster. We also have a market here that is tied in with a gas station so we take advantage of that savings. Also on the back of their cash register sales receipts are coupons for I-Hop for a free entree with the purchase of another of $6.00 or of equal or more value & 2 drinks. We always have a coupon when we go there for a meal.

Catch ya all later.

Good morning. Just a short post as I have to clean upstairs bathrooms and it is already really hot. Our ac can't keep up with the heat as it was 84 in the house last evening having run it all day and fans too.

Tonight is chicken and dumplings. Jack wants it but told me not to make it with the heat. Doesn't matter as it is hot no matter what you make.

I put another hot dog in a bowl of regular food to get him back to eating dog food again and he is trying to weed out the hot dog pieces the little stinker. I usually put less and less in each day until he is back to all dog food. He has lost a lot of weight because he isn't eating enough so we may have to get some supplement or something to get him back to where he should be.

I picked out and ordered the beads and bracelet for my dil's birthday present. She admired my girlfriend's so much I thought it would be a nice gift for her. She is olive skinned and dark hair so I am making a red bead bracelet and then the spacers and such all are different hearts. The middle of the bracelet has a photo cube with a picture of Jackson and Jay in it. I bought it now because of a buy one get one free sale, I had $5 in points and bought enough for free shipping. I saved $30!!!

Jean: It was funny when we were at Jackson's bday party, we met Jay and Alicia's best friends parents on both sides. Kelly's mom took it upon herself to make sure we were introduced to her other family members. She said, "This is Jack's parent and Jackson's grandparents, Donna and what is your name?" Jack said, "Jack." She said, "oh!" and we all laughed at it because we call him Jay. I told her there used to be a 4th one too. It gets confusing because some people call my son Jay and most of them call him Jack. The Jay people know he is Jack but a lot of the Jack people don't know who Jay is. It gets to be fun. Jean and Tony Bennett has a nice ring to it.

Maggie: It is always nice to lose more weight for sure. We have an Applebees here but it is clear across town over by Kelly's. We haven't been there in a long time.

Gotta go girls. Have a good day all. Faye

Talking Titilating Hot Thursday


GOOD AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫


It is noon o’clock and currently clear and 73ºs and they say it will not get higher than the high 80ºs but when they say that it reaches 100º and above. We have heat that is not good for growing our veggies. They suffer. We are thinking we are not going to have a good producing garden again this year.

I was just doing some research on the Big Boss Oil-Less Fryer as seen on TV and talked myself out of getting one. It is really a convection oven with a browning element. I have a Cuisinart convection oven that has a browning setting and use it almost daily. It is my oven of choice for it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like my stove oven does. I can cook “oil less” in it and do quite regularly so why would I need that new big appliance. I am glad I did the research on line and read lots of pro & con comments on it for I was thinking of getting one when I saw the advertisement in a magazine. See how I saved a few bucks? Talked myself out of getting it. Now if I didn’t have that nice convection oven I probably would get one for they sound like a good appliance to have if one has the room for it. I sure hope we can find a place for that oven in a motor home. I bet I can. There are appliances that I can do without but my convection oven is my most favorite one.

I don’t have a clue yet what I am going to make for dinner and don’t have any ambition to cook but I will snap out of it and get something planned and go shopping in the freezer. We are going to send back the second freezer for we won’t have any produce to be storing in it after all and they said they would take it back. I transferred all I had put into it back into the kitchen fridge and freezer so it is now ready to exit the home this evening at 5 o’clock. We thought we were so smart to get it when it was on sale thinking for sure we would have a good garden this year but it won’t happen after all. Best now it is best to let it go back when they are willing to take it. We have done a lot of business with them so are considered “good customers.”

Our front room and down the hall looks awful. Just the wood flooring and puffs of under carpet padding stapled to it that need to have the staples holding it down pulled out. Since I don’t bend over very well I could use my rolling office chair and pull some staples if I had a mind to ~ but I think I won’t.

My compute is givng me fits and I am afraid I will have to do some quick saving of some of my things before it completely quits. I really don't want to get a new one and have to go through all the things to teach it to do what I want it to do.

DONNA FAYE Do you have any fans that you can plug in to circulate the air better for cooling off? Ours really help the air conditioner out that way. John is also a name used by some guys named Jack. And Jack is also used from folks named John and Jay for Jayson or Jay for Jay.

JEAN an SUSAN Howdy to the two of you this day.

Have a great day Magnolias
