First up today, Bex, Dante and I are going to the mall.
Bex wants to get a few things and asked me to tag along.
I think she's starting to feel nervous about going out on her own. Baby could come any time now.
Today is your last chance to get in the GIVEAWAY, by guessing baby's birth date and weight.
Before we go out, I'm going to make a list of foods I will need for the next week ... so I'm prepared and NOT eating the same stuff day in, day out. That is a great way to get sick to death of 'on plan' food and fall off the wagon.
I am thinking of making a few hearty vegetable soups. It is coming into winter and a nice tasty soup at lunchtime is a good choice.
I still haven't finished that new patchwork block either, so after lunch I plan on doing it.
Till then, catch ya later.
CRABBY! I bought a new wireless keyboard to use in the lounge with my laptop. Got home, opened the box (noticed the seal was broken on the box)... and got it out. And bugger me! It is clearly NOT NEW! Who would sell anything that has marks all over it as new????
So, that means I've got to go back there tonight to get it replaced with a bloody NEW one. Grrrr.
I'm now having lunch, then I'm going to make my soup. I got all sorts of lovely veges to put in it. It will be my dinner. ZERO points! Gotta love that.
CATHY: this wee baby boy will be our 13th Grandchild. The 8th Boy. He is due in 8 days!
So excited.... we can't wait of course.
I just heard from the patchwork tutor from my Friday class. We are meeting tomorrow at her home then after that she's found a new venue for us at Ardmore. I'm not 100% sure WHERE Ardmore is, or how far away it is from here, so I will find out more tomorrow. If it's too far away I will give up my Friday class.
Which would be a shame as I really do like the ladies and tutor. Fingers crossed it's not too far away.
BY THE WAY: Thank You everyone for all the lovely comments yesterday re: my weight loss. It was much appreciated.
Well... The soup tastes like shit! Too 'earthy'... too much beetroot I think. Will try to adjust it tomorrow to make it better, though not sure how.
The family had chicken fried rice (homemade) and everyone said it was delicious. Well ain't that nice? I had a tiny portion just to taste test it and I agreed, it was lovely. Will be doing that again.
I used the rice we didn't use with the 'dead' chicken two nights ago. Worked perfectly.
End of Day: a lovely day, finished of with a fun play/tumble around on the floor with the delightful Dante. He's such a little darling... love him to bits.
