Oh my, Loretta, I was just talking to my neighbor about mice inside a car, her folks live down in the valley, and their sedan sitting in a carport out back, but rarely used, had a whole nest in there.......they adopted 2 cats, lol.

Mary, isn't it funny how we like things left the way they were, after thinking at first to move them? My dh takes pictures down, that have been up for years, only to put them back, after some thought.

LoveMontana 04-28-2013 08:52 PM

Monday's Eats DD
I've been feeling really tired on my down days which is contrary to how it was working earlier on...oh well, some days are diamonds... Spent way too much at Sam's, someone mentioned $300 at Costco on the daily thread...well, that's what I spent at Sam's. Which is way too much for a single lady...well, I did buy the bigger Keurig, the one with a reservoir...my little one was a single cup pourover. Sam's was $20 cheaper than Costco, so that was the incentive. Drinking my first cup from it now.

I went to Sam's 'cause they're the only one that carries the coffee I like. Then, I didn't buy it as they had a Green Mountain one that looked very interesting, so I'm changing my favorite. Picked up more stuff for the freezer...some frozen dinners. Thinking that I'll try those to limit my calories on the DD's. So, we'll see what we will see.

Had black coffee before breaking my fast at five p.m. with a Healthy Choice steamable and a bit of salmon...stopped at Fresh & Easy and nibbled on radishes and grape tomatoes on my way home from my friends house.

432 kcals so hoping that will do it for the day...oh! gotta have a couple of prunes later...got to keep regular, you know.

Michele, I'm hoping you at least had some memorable food on your trip :)

Long day began early, had to take the thyroid med, so didn't need to eat anything, and dh just had some yogurt and a protein bar.

Lunch at Lucille's, a barbeque place, had those little sliders and a huge ice tea, my goodness, the glass was like a vase!!

Starbucks on the way home, skinny mocha light frappaccino.

Dinner will be a piece of leftover chicken and leftover asparagus.

Evening snack: light laughing cow cheese that needs to move along it's way.
black coffee, leftover

Mary, I'll bet you are thankful that we can shop at Costco or Sam's, many seniors can't do that, favorite foods or not. My dh sure is glad to have the option. Do you buy paper products there too, I like their paper towels and the meat there is so higher quality compared to our Safeway up here.
