Good morning. The sun is shining and my phone app says today will be a super day with temps near seventy degrees. I'm hoping to spend some time on the porch today. Yesterday was a gorgeous day but I spent more than half of it under my covers with chills. Where they came from I have no idea, but by mid afternoon I was feeling much better.
Yesterday, Deanne picked up some small sub rolls for me so I made a ham, cheese and lettuce sub sandwich for lunch. Mmmm, tasted so good that I had another one later for my supper. One of the perks of being elderly is being able to eat whatever you want for your meals. Of course, that's as long as you don't look at the "Nutrition" labels.
Later today I think I'll start my new notebook that lists the foods that I "can have" or most importantly "want to have" and their nutritional values. I understand the value of eating only "healthy" foods, but I have no intentions of living on fish and nuts. My compromise is that I will TRY to stay fairly close to what I should have (nutritionally).
Thanks, Robyn. You gave me such a wonderful giggle when I read your comment regarding keeping a dying plant alive. I could easily just buy another mosquito plant, but my nature is to do whatever it takes to keep this one alive. Obviously, it's not going to ward off any mosquitos this year, but then maybe it will be big enough next year to scare a few.
I didn't do any crocheting yesterday, but I did demolish a ton of junk mail. Last night, I decided to polish off that last bottle of beer that has been in my refrigerator for some time now. I don't know if it was a good idea or not because it put me to sleep even before I finished all of it. Can you tell, I'm a cheap date?
This afternoon I'll get back to my crocheting. And I'll go out and take some photos of my beautiful yellow irises. They don't last very long, but they sure are pretty. Here's an image that I borrowed from the web to share. It's a great thought to live by.
