Today is Cara's birthday! Go on over and wish her a great day!
Yesterday wasn't so good food wise. I even went to where I log my meals (SparkPeople) and printed off several of my good days in the last month to see what I'd eaten that kept me full and not wanting to snack a lot. Now I have to review, review, review and make some plans so that I will have successful days in the future. Glancing at a couple of them I noticed that I had a whole tomato with my evening and sometimes noon meal. What am I going to do when the tomatoes are yucky? I just can't stand to eat those horrible winter tomatoes like that. I'm sure I'm not alone. When I can get them in the winter I usually get the hydroponic ones (and pay through the nose) because they are more like fresh, vine ripe ones but they are still not the same. And another gripe, I can't get my local grocery store to stock up on Brussels sprouts. They rarely have them and won't listen to me about stocking them. I can't understand this because when they do have them they are gone in a days time, so I'm not the only one around here that likes them. I have to stock up on the frozen bags of them when I go to Wal-Mart, which I will next week.
Okay, enough on the griping.
Gonna make a big pot of chili today and freeze it in one portion containers. It will probably last me a couple of months. Then tomorrow I'll do the same with spaghetti sauce. Don't know what it's like where you live but it's cool here. That's why I thought of the chili.
I've been crocheting a lot in the evenings while watching TV. Guess what everyone I know is getting for Christmas this year.I've also got an afghan to finish that I started last winter. It's going to be 6'X6' and that sure takes a long time to crochet. It's also for a gift even though the recipient paid for the yarn. All the time involved in making something that large is sometimes overwhelming. I just couldn't make myself work on it this summer so since it's getting cooler out there I can now stand to have that warm thing on my lap while I work on it. I've also gotten two requests for toboggans and mittens. I'd better really get busy. Only 97 days left to get them done and I have to subtract some of those to allow for shipping.
Have a great weekend!
