I was happy with my weight loss this week. I lost 1.8 pounds. It was a good meeting. The leader passed out cards and asked us 3 questions and we were to write down the answers. One of the questions was ” What could you do to make your family meals more appealing?” You were suppose to write the first thing that came to mind. I already go to extremes to do that for my family. I serve my meals on nice plates not paper ones. They are good, hearty appetizing meals. I put a lot of effort into my cooking. I even think about colors when I cook and will use a red pepper vs. a green one when I need some color.
So I wrote ” Carving little vegetables into flowers.” Yea, like I am going to really do that. I don’t think so. But it was the first thing that came to mind because I couldn’t think of anything else. Some of the weight watcher women thought I actually did that.
I can see myself spending the afternoon carving sweet potatoes into fish. I don’t think so. I’ve got better things to do. I have blogging.
I realized today that when I sit down to write a blog I usually have no idea in my head what I am going to write about. I just start typing. I guess it goes to show you I don’t think too much about anything serious. But that’s also how I keep sane and silly. Which is just where I want to be right now in the twilight of my years. Am I in the twilight of my years yet? When exactly does that happen?
So I did a google image search for twilight years and came up with this.
Ha! Ha! Now that’s more like it. That’s exactly where and when I live. The Freakin’ Twilight Zone. Perfect!!!!
Speaking of Halloween. My daughter and her hubby went to a friend’s house last night. My son went to a bar to see his friend’s band, the wasband was doing a card show and I was abandoned and left alone to deal with the trick or treaters. I bought candy. No one showed up. Not one little kid. I was sort of disappointed but I also sort of figured no one would come from past years.
Sarah leaves for Puerto Rico tomorrow with her bosses and a couple of co-workers for a business trip. She’ll be gone 6 days and is leaving me alone with the men of the house. I wish I could stow away on board the plane with my drugs and alcohol because that’s the way I fly. But I guess I can’t.
This is where she is staying. Not too shabby.
