LInda I sure do agree with you about "tis the season". I enjoy eating many of the summer veggies like corn, tomatoes and things that come from the garden. I will probably not eat toms all winter long.

Looking forward to a HOT week here with temps over 90s all days of the upcoming week. Getting ready for Chicken Fry at church for Labor Day. We will have our fry on August 31. Labor Day comes early this year.

Glad to see you found some strawberries, Doris...I picked up some at Sam's today when I returned the TV I bought yesterday...too big for my cabinet...well, it would fit but would be overwhelming...Took N with me before she cleaned and bought a few things for her as well. They had some cute sleepers for the young'un, so she's set for this winter (if it ever comes)

coffee/milk a couple through the morning, then a couple bites of melon while I was slicing 'em up.

Thursday's food UD
Thanks, y'all, glad something is working. It's not much and probably not as much as I've hoped, but it's a loss and I'll take all I can get. Hoping when cooler weather gets here, I'll get the b in motion and work some of it off. Right now it's hotter than blue blazes, 106 today with high humidity, rain all around me, flooding and huge boulders being moved by mother nature, but dry here...more of the same tomorrow and I have to go through the canyon to Redlands so hoping it all goes well.


B. hb eggs, bacon, and a tomato, grape/pomegranate juice for the pills...have cut regular juice down to the four ounces we got when we were children.

L. lo pizza, diet pepsi

S. fruit - couple of strawberries, a nectarine, and about a cup each of watermelon and honeydew...a bit of cottage cheese.

decaf/milk for later

Mary, I think running around with your niece these past several days has helped things to move on in your body, without you having to make a big deal about exercising!! Keeping busy, and enjoying it too, that is great. Wish your heat wave would expire soon, I'm not looking forward to this weekend, ours is staying put until next week. We can all sweat together, I guess!!

Good Night!
