Still not much of anything going on. I think the 4th celebration is gonna be Sat, the 30th. Since i haven't bought the local paper in about 20 years, not sure. Businesses will still close on the 4th. There's an all day thing that goes on at the park here in town. The Little Miss Sparkle contest starts it off, and i think there's a kiddy parade too. Ends with a good band, street dance, and fireworks, if allowed.
It happened again,,,lololol... I get in the bathroom and my phone rings,, I've told everybody, if i don't answer, wait a minute and call back. lololol. It's weird, how it happens all the time. This time, was just a credit card co,,,left a message. I don't have anything extra on my home phone, like caller id, long distance, anything,,,just the basic. I have all that with the cell. So if someone doesn't leave a message, then i never know who called on that one.
I've lost 3 lbs...i went ahead and weighted this morning, cause if i hadn't lost, i was quitting. lololol. Too darned much cooking, cleaning up. The only vege i like is corn, and it's forbidden. Fruits have too much frucose (sugar) so they are out. I still have that huge bag of veges i can stir fry, make em almost palatible. Gotta figure out some other things to eat. Gonna add salads for sure. WITH dressing!!! I've made it thru 6 days, almost 7, so i can add a few more carbs. Try to stay with about 60-70. What it amounts to,,,IS,,no white, no sugars.
Not sure what i think about health care. We were forced to have car insurance, so what's the difference? It actually might help people like my son. I'm past the age for it to matter anyway.
Highs in the 90s for the next few days,,HA!!!,,according to the great weathermen. Yesterday WAS cooler tho. Keep your eye on my little weather thingy.
Just had to kill 1 or 2 flys yesterday,,maybe getting better. Still have no idea what caused it. Years ago, i bought some fly traps you hung outside. It was a lid they went into a gallon jar thru, and couldn't get out. To attract them you put something stinky in the jar,,like a fish, and hung it way away from you. Believe me,,,they worked!!! BUT,,,to clean out 1/2 gallon of dead flies, and stinky fish, was a horror. We had to dig a hole and bury that. This was out at the ranch and got worse when we were raising 2 pigs to eat. Even tho they were not close to the house. These are just the common ol house flys i'm being bothered with. Never had this many tho. Woulda helped to have lots of gallon jars...
I've been watching a live cam on ustream about the decorah eagles, but they have left the nest and looking into others today, i found one i LOVE. It's called pete's pond. In Afica. Has lots of wildlife show up to drink.
