    • Wednesday

      A different day for Winencandy. FIL called at 6:30, they were sick and did Daughter and I want their places on a bus trip to the Dunfield Theatre Cambridge to see Marry Poppins? Of course I said yes!!! Daughter declared she had nothing important to do at school today, so off we went

      Coach bus at 9am. 46 people. 3/4 of them had white hair. We spent some time at the Cambridge mall - Daughter & I bought shoes - on sale - 1/2 price! Lunch was East Side Marios.

      The play started at 2. We were front row center! The stage was 5' away and at waist height. It was amazing! I wondered if I'd "see" it differently, now that I've had a tiny bit of experience as a Stage Manager. I did. But in a good way. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

      Supper was a buffet at Woodstock. we were home by 8.


      Winencandy's Checklist

      Basic Primal Foods - East Side Mario's Grilled Chicken and Provolone Panini - minus the bun and with a side Caesar salad, Buffet supper: salad bar, 1/2 bowl cream of potato soup, beef, chicken, brussel sprouts, green beans, olives.

      Eat More Fat
      Whipping Cream Chai - 8 am
      Shangri-La Shot - Nope

      Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
      Watching Amounts - ya
      NO Alcohol - Check AND I COULD have had something 3 separate times today!!! (lunch, play, dinner)
      NO Sugar - umm, I had a slice of cheesecake...

      Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
      Nope

      Sleep, Sun, Play and Use Your Brain
      11pm - 6:30am, no sun, Skylander.
      Wonderful day watching Mary Poppins with my Daughter!


      *I think that a person only has so many NOs that they can use in a day. Some days you have more than others. Eventually the NOs run out...that's when the Dragon wins. Well, I said no to the candies passed around on the bus, I decided to not have wine with lunch, to have my sandwich without the bun, to not have dessert at lunch, to not have a glass of wine or an ice cream at intermission, at supper, I chose the best I could AND I didn't have wine for the 3rd time, but I ran out of NOs at the cheesecake...

          • Thursday
            My Home Instruction Student cancelled today. I sat outside and enjoyed my Chai in the sun. Then I put the butterfly harness on Kiya and took her out to explore the yard:



            I tried taking Orbie out too, but she wanted NOTHING to do with the outdoors!

            I found another new flower:



            The school called and asked if I'd teach the past HI Student again. I said yes. I had a hair apt after lunch to hide my silver (it's NOT grey!) Daughter made cookies after supper. She wanted me to help...

              • I don't know what this is:


                Along my garage:


                I was planning on building a deck here, now what am I supposed to do??

                • Friday

                  Supply Day today. I had 8 phone calls for jobs today! 8! Can't they spread it out??

                  When I got home I poured a glass of wine and took the Butterflies out for a walk around our property. We were gone for about a half hour. 12 C. Nice. Supper was leftovers. Tonight I made a packing list for Scotland, which is 70 Days, 22 Hours and 9 minutes away!


                  Winencandy's Checklist
                  Basic Primal Foods - Banana muffins, pepperettes, cheese, avocado, Greek Yogurt with raspberries, leftover chicken thigh, sweet potato fries, spaghetti squash, banana fried in butter with whipping cream, Greek yogurt and melted dark chocolate chips

                  Eat More Fat
                  Whipping Cream Chai - 7 am
                  Shangri-La Shot - Nope

                  NO Sugar - dark chocolate chips
                  Questionable - Kettle Chips with Artichoke and Asiago dip before supper - probably shouldn't have had them

                  Walk with Butterflies?

                  • Countdown to Scotland

                    69 Days, 22 Hours, 44 Minutes!

                    We will be in Scotland for 15 Days! Including my niece's wedding. I'm already creating packing lists...

                    London today with Daughter. She's having 2nd thoughts about the beautiful dress she bought in January
                    So we went to a few dress stores to try on other ones. She found one that maybe she likes, but it was a size 00 and very snug when they zipped it up. We may try taking the crinoline out of the 1st dress...

                    Stay tuned for the continuing Prom Dress Drama...

                    Late afternoon was BEAUTIFUL! 18 C! I took a blanket (and a glass of wine) outside and sat with the Butterflies



                    I'm changing my "checklist". Again. I find tracking food boring. And I can't imagine that it makes very interesting reading either. So, for now, until I change my mind again, I'm just gonna document the OOPSs! (is that a word?)

                    Winencandy's Checklist
                    Whipping Cream Chai - Check, but I think I will change this out for something else for the spring/summer mornings. I'm just not feeling the tea. But WHAT? Any ideas?? I like the AS that the Whipping Cream Chai gives me.
                    Shangri-La Shot - Nope. The last time I felt sick after I had it. Not wanting to repeat that feeling.

                    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes Yeah, I'll probably keep this heading 'cause face it, this is the one that counts
                    NO Alcohol - Two small glasses of wine. Well, one and a half. I've got a half glass sitting here that I don't feel like finishing.
                    NO Sugar - 1/2 of my last dark chocolate bar - I melted part of it into some whipping cream chai for an after supper drink. Very nice

                    Walking to prepare for Scotland - Not today

                      68 Days, 6 Hours, 30 Minutes!

                      Sunday

                      Moving day for University Son. New apt, a few blocks form the last one. Nicer place. New flatmates. It was a beautiful day. Sun shining. It started raining on our drive home. University Son is home for the week before he starts his summer co-op placement. We watched the 1st 2 episodes of Game of Thrones season 2 after supper.

                        • Alright, lady, enough with the spring flower photos!! Nowhere near anything like that here yet, and not for a while, either .

                          Another prom dress? Glad son #1 has his suit already. Just has to take it in for tailoring soon. And buy shoes. And he is thinking about a fedora and a pocket watch. Seriously?? I suspect the girl stuff is far more expensive, so perhaps should count myself lucky.

                          Game of Thrones. I've thought that would be a good series to look at, son #1 has just started watching and is totally into it. Must have hubby download the series, since we're on Walking Dead hiatus until autumn.

                            So you don't want to see this one?
                            The flower in post 3921 opened to look like this:

                            Maybe tomorrow I'll get a side view. It's a strikingly dark pink.

                            You are lucky I'm hoping she won't find one she likes as well and we can just make some alterations to this one...

                              Supply teach. Band practice. We have a concert in 2 weeks. I brought snack. Everyone commented on how healthy it was. Cucs, cherry tomatoes & red peppers with Helluvagood dip, green apples, red grapes and vanilla yogurt.
                              Another episode of Game of Thrones.

                                Home Instruction in the morning. Ancient History and Lord of the Flies. I read aloud the chapter when Simon dies. I spent 2 hours in the afternoon painting the ceiling in Surfer Son's bait shop. Then I sat out in the yard on a blanket with a club soda and my butterflies, enjoying the sun. After supper, another episode of Game of Thrones. There is NO web surfing while watching Game of Thrones!
