Morning Drizzle

I'm sitting here enjoying a cup of coffee and the quiet in the house. Hubby is still sleeping and the cat is quiet for the moment. She has started being very vocal to the point that we have to tell her to shut up at times. Chloe is laying up against my leg as I sit in the recliner with my feet up. All I can hear is the hum of the refrigerator right now. Ah, peace and quiet. It is supposed to rain today and was drizzling a little while ago. I so enjoyed the sun we had the last two days. So I can't really complain about the rain we'll get today. I noticed that I have about 20 crocus plants blooming under the new deck we had built last year. I transplanted the tulips that were under there but didn't think about the crocuses. I looks funny to see them struggling to find light from under that big structure.

Today we'll be having a get together with our church group and we are hosting it. We will be serving tri-tip roasts and hubby will be barbecuing them. Everyone will bring the rest of the meal pot luck style. Most of you may not know what a tri-tip is. I know when we've traveled to other states the stores don't have them and the butchers don't always know what part of the cow they are. I forgot myself but I just Googled it and it's from the bottom of the sirloin. It's very tender and there is only one on each side of beef. We are cooking 5 of them today. Well I guess it's time to get moving, the cat has started her song again...............

I was just checking out the pictures I took from our trip and saw these boots. I thought of Judi when I saw them. There is a store in Carmel, CA that is full of all these handcrafted boots. I haven't made time for posting on here lately. I don't know why, maybe I just can't think of anything to say. I have been reading the blogs I follow and sometimes when I read other blogs and see how talented and clever people are it makes me not want to post. I would hate to bore people to death. I haven't lost any more weight since my band adjustment. I am able to eat a bit more, but that isn't the problem. I have been eating stuff I shouldn't. I think I needed to just vent a little in my eating, since I was so restricted for so long. I have continued to workout at the gym so I haven't gained any weight. I am still tight in the morning so I don't eat breakfast, which I've always read is very important so I always ate it. But when you can't, you can't. I did drink a protein shake the other day and that went down ok. I think I am back on track now. Just had to get that out of my system so hopefully I will not continue to eat bad stuff and sabotage my weight loss. I did go to lunch yesterday with hubby at a place we hadn't gone to in probably 4 months or more. The lady who took our order said to me, "do you mind my asking how much weight you've lost?" She said she had been watching me lose weight since we started going there and told me how good I looked. That was a great incentive to behave myself. No more Hershey's kisses for me.

Yesterday was such a pretty day here. The sun was out all day and it was in the high 60s. Come on Spring...........
