I guess this could be a Friday Fragments but I'm not linking anywhere. Downloaded a few photos off my camera but not much there either. I've been so boring lately. Without Wednesday Hodgepodge my blog is rather bare!
Recently I took a few picture of our Bougainvillea's that Mark trimmed a few weekends ago. He only trimmed two of them. There is a third one around the corner leading to the front door.
The reason I did this is because I think it is time to hire someone and they can have a visual of how he likes them trimmed. I'm tired of him up on the rooftop and climbing ladders. They are now ready for the Santa Ana winds we get throughout the winter months.
While I was out there I snapped a recent photo of our Norfolk Pine Tree. The one pictured below is from 2011 when I put blue bows on the tree for Jack's Tree. This tree is just growing like crazy. I just love it.
Next up is my new eating plan. I'm not calling it a diet because I already eat a healthy diet of fruits and veggies along with following a low carb way of living. This is about portion control because even though I may eat healthy I am still eating too much food.
Because I can't exercise very much, including walking, I am hoping this will help me lose some weight. I'm so tired of being heavy. I did not order the whole kit which includes DVD's for exercise, I just ordered the additional set of portion sized containers. There is plenty of information out there to help you figure out how to use them. YouTube videos too. Wish me success......
Put the coffee mug there for a comparison.
On a different note Mark will be leaving this evening from the UK and arriving at LAX tomorrow around 2 pm. Also Adam is flying home to Pittsburgh tomorrow from LAX at 6:30 in the evening. I would definitely appreciate prayers for their safe travels.
A little bit of a funny story here. Probably going to long today but I want it down on paper. Remember when Mark was landing at LAX and the limo driver ended coming to our house instead of the airport but Adam was coming in the same day, they meet up, got Adam's car and Adam drove him home???
Well it almost happened again. It is Tristen's dads car and they are selling it. He expected the papers this week and would take it to CarMax and sell it. When they hadn't arrived yet and he thought he may have to bring the car here which meant I would drive him back to LAX tomorrow.
Okay the papers ended up arriving but it was going to turn out almost the same way again. Mark gets in at 2 pm, Adam leaves at 6:30 pm. Adam could have picked Mark up and Mark would have dropped Adam off for his flight and just driven the car here so Adam could sell it next month!!!!
On a sad not Amber is in the process of finding out if Charlie has cancer. He went in for some routine tests because of his age and they found a mass in his bladder. He has no signs of illness at this time.
Charlie is still the same guy we have loved for almost 11 years. The first test came back negative and his urine is being retested today. Charlie is Amber's life so if you could say a little prayer for him I would greatly appreciate it.
