So, What's In Our Food?

July 29, 2019

Good morning. It looks nice outside my window, but I know it's going to be a scorcher in just a while.  Thank goodness for air conditioning.  I can't imagine how folks in warmer climates can get used to this heat. 

Today I have photos to share that Audrey sent me.  They were taken at Falls Park, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.   The first photo is Mac and Audrey at the Falls.  The second is of the Falls.

Mac had entered two sculptures in the competition at the National Taxidermy Convention, and both pieces took a second place award.  These sculptures can be made into forms for mounting animals in taxidermy.
Mac also won the People's Choice Award.  This is where everyone attending votes on their favorite pieces in all the different categories.  Congratulations Mac. 
Yesterday was a rather quiet day for me.  I did manage to do a bit of personal laundry.  Today I may wash a few scatter rugs.  We'll see.  I'm learning to not make plans.  To just go with whatever happens.  Maybe later this afternoon, I'll do some crocheting. 
I've been taking photos of the Nutrition Facts label on the different foods that I have bought.  This way I can decide what I can and cannot eat.  I copy this information into a notebook so that I can study it better.  Who'd a thunk this would be my next hobby?
I'll have to go online and see if there are books with the nutritional labels from all the different brands of foods.   This might be a big help and save me a lot of writing in my notebook.
Well, I just did that.  I found several books on Amazon, so I ordered a couple.  They will be here in a couple days.  I'll let you know how they are.
Deanne just got here, so I'm going to sit and visit with her.  She has to go to work in a while.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Congrats to Mac and Audrey. They are doing and working with what is enjoyable to them. That should be a pleasure for them both.

I hear you are doing more work than you should be doing. I'll phrase this too. "Don't let me have to come up there". (lol) It's good to keep moving though. It seems if we sit down, then we are giving up. My sister is always amazed at what I am doing, but I told her, if I doesn't do it, who will because the family I have here doesn't visit me anymore because I am not working now and doesn't have very much to give. That's sad, but that's the way it is. You are so blessed to have your family there by your side. When the ones here came to the hospital my sister in Louisiana said they kept up so much trouble that the staff were talking about putting them out of the hospital. (laughing) I told her they should have put them out. You are blessed to have yours with you and giving you all the love they have. I only have a few good ones and they don't live here, so I am always alone. Hope you and Pogo have a great day. Take care of yourself.

Beautiful view of the falls. I know they enjoyed seeing that with their own eyes. That is a place I would love to visit. Amazon has everything, don't they:) Congrats to Mac on the awards! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Congratulations to Mac. I love the piece he worked on. It is great. It is almost like I am waiting for him to jump up and give me a kiss on the face.
I love the photos of Audrey and Mac at the Falls. Awesome. I am so glad that they were able to go and enter the convention and winning!!!

I have to agree with all that said... "Don't make me come up there." But I know that your not doing too much. I know that you stop when you have to. If it gets done that is just a bonus and if it is not super important then you can just do it when you can.

I have been so busy I don't know what I am doing lol... Talk to you soon. xxx love Beth
