Good morning. Tis three o'clock in the morning and I'm wide awake. Earlier in the evening, I had been doing a word find puzzle and I got really tired and fell asleep early. Today is going to be another hot day with temps in the nineties, but right now temps are at 73F degrees.
According to the weather app on my phone, it will be raining here soon. I just looked and the rain hasn't started yet, but the humidity is at 94% so it just might start soon. That would be nice for the plants and the grass.
Yesterday morning, Deanne got here just as I was finishing my blog post to take me to the car dealer so that I could get a new safety sticker on my car. The only thing my car needed was new windshield wipers, so that was good.
When we got back I noticed a new little white rose in the garden near the shed. I brought out my camera to capture a few blossoms. The Rose Of Sharon bush also had a few new blooms. So here's a few shots from around the shed.
This is all part of the view I have from my porch. With this heat so wicked, I'm really missing sitting out there and enjoying all of this. But of course, that's the beauty of photos. I can still enjoy looking at these beautiful blossoms.
I'm anxious for my two new books to arrive today so that I can figure out some meals. I have a lot of questions when I see my heart doctor next visit. I need to know exactly what type of diet I'm supposed to be on. Right now, everything I enjoy is on the no no list and everything that I don't like is on the good list. This makes for really blah meals.
In the hospital, I got decent meals without any restrictions other than salt. Hopefully, I can add more tasty things to my meals other than just garden salads. I have to weigh myself every day to keep an eye on water retention. I gained three pounds the day I left the hospital without eating any extra foods. This could be the difference between my scale and how they weighed me in the hospital. (in the bed)
Since I've been home, my weight is up or down only by a few ounces each day. The total is down by almost one pound. I guess that means there is still water retention so my meds will have to be adjusted. I guess there is a bright side here. If I can continue to lose an ounce or two each day, it should only take a few years to drop down another size or two. hahahahaha.
In all fairness, it's not really as bad as I like to paint it. I'm not really much of a cook any more, so I'll just have to get back into cooking more. Today though, I think I'm going to make a bowl of Jello. I can have this with Cool Whip for dessert. Or maybe I'll make a Jello/Cool Whip pie. Hmmm, decisions, decisions!
Now I'm off to make a cup of coffee and maybe crochet for a while. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
