I didn't do my laundry Wednesday like I usually do so I'm behind and the piles are growing so I've got to do laundry today. Before I started I opened up blinds in the guest bedroom, put two T.V. tables in front of the windows and put the tomato and pepper plants in front of the windows. I haven't decided yet whether they will grow better under the lights, in the front of the windows or out in the hotbox. I know they're not going out in the hotbox today but maybe in a few days.
I've had the television on ever since we got up this morning. I've been watching the news on the marathon bombers. The people in Boston must be not only grieving - but terrified as well. Mercy!
FYI: I've been trying to figure out how to be able to type and not have a bunch of stuff dragging and changing places on my documents. We've only had this new computer now for what? a whole month? Well, I think I have finally figured it out! It may take me awhile but I do finally learn!! Anyway, now I can type comfortably. I used to be able to type 110 words per minute in my younger days, but needless to say, with the computer generation and the ability to correct so easily, I'm sure I've lost some of that speed; but I'm still pretty good. So honestly, it really was the computer. TeeHee!
My husband has been wanting French Toast for a couple weeks now. He keeps grinning and looking up at me and saying that French Toast and bacon sounds like it would be a pretty good meal - and I keep ignoring him!!! Grinning at me that way used to get him somewhere but not so much anymore. We had tons of junk food when my brother and his wife visited so we just have to back off. I made him pizza again last night and tonight he WILL get French Toast . . . but after that he and I are going back on our diets. This last Monday morning when I got on the scale I had lost 1 more pound and believe me when I say, only by sheer luck. I haven't the foggiest idea how I did that after all I had eaten the previous week-end but I don't think I'm going to be that lucky this coming Monday. My sister has been crowing this week about her weight loss and I just hate that she's losing and I'm not, so I've got to get on the ball.
I've not done too very much today. It's been cold and I've felt totally lazy. I did put away all of my Winter dishes and got out all my Summer dishes. You laugh but that's quite a job in and of itself. It requires cleaning out all my cabinets and everything being put up and put away neatly and carefully. Other than that little job, and laundry of course, I've been a very, very lazy girl!!
We've had 2 different herons today on our lake and the stupid grackles have been harassing the purple martins. The bluebirds are doing much better this year and not being hassled nearly as much as usual. I hope that lasts - I would love some baby bluebirds.
Our friends just called and want us to meet them at the Chinese restaurant in town so we're going out for dinner tonight. This will be much better than French Toast . . . but now you all know what we'll be having for dinner tomorrow!!
