Tuesdays This and That

I am feeling like the bloggy dry well today. It can't always be as exciting as getting a $490.00 vet bill like yesterday. Glad my guys are all protected though and didn't have any bad reactions from the shots.
Comfort Stretch. Now that's a term a gal can sink her teeth into. I noticed when I put on a pair of new white pants the other day that they are made out of Comfort Stretch material. You gotta love that especially when there have been too many trips to Pat's Pizza and Dairy Queen lately.........my trainer wants me to eat like she eats and I told her that I cannot survive on twigs and bark! She wants me to keep a 'food journal' and bring it in each week for her to check out. Does she think I'm stupid?! I don't want her knowing everything that I eat!!!!

Speaking of eating I just made a big batch of homemade spaghetti sauce and meatballs and boy does it smell good! I just can't eat the stuff that comes out of a jar after using my mother in laws recipe for the past 30 years.

Also found some wonderful looking strawberries this morning at the grocery store that came from California.
These things are H>U>G>E!!! I cut them up and put some sugar in them to make some juice and they will make nice shortcakes tonight for dessert. The heavy cream will whip up nice and fluffy as the final touch. Can you see why I don't want to keep a FOOD JOURNAL?! I think I would probably get a D- on it. Now I did have a Slim Fast for lunch and 4 crackers with butter on them for breakfast so that should help balance out the calories from the shortcakes maybe?????

My carpenter was just here and my yard man is here so there's lots going on around the ole' homestead. My sun room is almost finished and we have been enjoying it during the day and evenings too. With the little propane stove it heats up nicely if the temps go down too low at night.

It will be nice to sit there and watch the antics of the horses out in the pasture when they get home in a couple of weeks. They are very entertaining, sometimes it's not really funny to all of us....ahem......like the day the two little ponies had Husbands straw hat and were having a game of tug of war with it and then ATE it! Now it's not like they have missed any meals along the way. The vet said yesterday that they both need a 10 year old kid to ride the daylights right out of them for about two hours every day instead of lounging around the barn waiting for treats. Hummmmmm maybe they need to keep a Food Journal!!!!

Hahaha! This is your best post yet. Too funny.

Speaking of food journals, ahem. I have been keeping a log of foods and potty habits (a charming find for unexpecting house guests, I'll tell you) and I'm AMAZED at what goes into my mouth. I snack CONSTANTLY.

I would rather not have that information in writing, thankyouverymuch!

In searching for the best way to lose weight (not that I'm sure there is a "best" way), I've come across this food journal idea a few times. Unfortunately, I'm not sure there is a journal with enough pages to keep track of all the things I eat. Oh well...please let me know if you decide to start one and if it actually works for you!
P.S. I want that sun room of yours!

If your strawberries are as good as the ones we had, you'll love them.
We didn't have whipped cream though
(non fat vanilla yogurt from Trader Joes is yummy too!)
You spaghetti and meatballs looks delish and I always like a bit of comfort stretch myself!!
