  • oooh that meatloaf looked good. I am so going to have to try that. Yes streaky bacon is the answer, they must have that in aussie em?

    even though I have taken to getting up earlier I am definitely not a morning person. I think it is just going to bed earlier that is making the difference for me. My regular bed time used to be around 10.30/11, now it is more like 9.30. It's 5.30am now... and yep, I'm wide awake.

        Which is what you get when you buy bacon here. That big eye makes the weaving part a bit difficult.
        Oh, but I bet its better to eat!

        Love the dogs, the rib cages, and the bacon (Em, can you not buy streaky bacon? Tends to be thinner, at least over here). And I delivered a parcel which originated from Ontario today (weird that I would remember, but it caught my eye) so in a funny and very very loose way we are linked
        LOL
        Not only by that funny and very loose way, but my daughter visited England this summer, so, like, we are also linked that way

        It was easier getting up today.

          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          • I've been glued to the news all day. North western Ontario has been stuck in a snow storm for 2 days, truckers have been living in their trucks, the police have had to rescue people from their cars. I can only guess that they're all fasting against their wills.

            I hope you and your family is okay Winencandy!!!

              • If streaky bacon is available, I imagine it'll be in the continental deli and cost about $20 a kilo. Might be worth it just to try that meatloaf though. I'll have a look.

                W'n'C, yes it is delicious stuff

                  Yeah, we saw that too. They rescued 230 people from the 402!
                  The army and helicopters helped with that! And that doesn't count the county roads.
                  The 401 is also shut down.
                  We're good. I haven't had to drive anywhere. Good thing because I drive a VW Beetle
                  After the Farmer plowed our lane he took the tractor and blade down our gravel road to the corner.
                  It's blown over again. The plow finally made it down our road around 5:30 tonight.

                  I've had to shovel trails in the yard for the Papillons! The snow's too deep:

                  • 35 Days 12 Hours 11 Minutes

                    Food
                    L – a red grapefruit, a slice of last night’s bacon wrapped meatloaf, a small cauliflower, mushroom, carrot, bacon salad (balsamic and bacon fat)
                    D – Spaghetti Meat sauce and coleslaw. One glass of wine. Dole Mandarin oranges (YUCK), a 1/3 cup of dates, almonds and goat cheese – to get the Dole Orange taste out of my mouth!

                    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
                    No candy, no chocolate, one small glass of wine.
                    I hurt my thumb shredding baby carrots for the coleslaw
                    I had a 107ml snack cup of Dole Mandarin oranges (‘cause my daughter had one) and it tasted GROSS!
                    I looked at the packaging – “Sweetened with Sucralose” YUCK! Why did I buy it? I HATE that stuff!
                    I can taste that, or aspartame, in anything. I’ve always been able to do that.
                    Everyone thinks I’m crazy ‘cause I can taste it, but I can.

                    I didn't try to drive anywhere today, thereby avoiding getting stuck or going in the ditch!

                    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                    I’m glad I’ve been doing Shovelglove. It helped today when I shoveled out some trails for the Paps



                    They've got 4 intersecting trails to run through

                    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
                    Bed at 10:30. I know!
                    It took about a hour to fall asleep. Not bad.
                    Awake at 6:00 (Papillons) checked online (iPhone) to see if the buses were cancelled. They were. Texted my sister and my daughter. Back to sleep. 7 am the alarm went off. Turned it off. 7:30 the Farmer’s pager went off (he’s a volunteer fireman) 401 problems. He didn’t even try to go out the lane. The Farmer got up at 8, the Papillons came back up to wake me at 8:30. I got up at 9.

                    The Farmer plowed the laneway and then, since the plows hadn’t been down our gravel road, he plowed a path to the paved road (which also hadn’t been plowed).

                    Another photo of the Pap trails:


                    This one is the path to the wine cellar, 'cause I gotta have access to that!

                    We live in an old farmhouse, you have to go outside to get in the basement.

                    Some laundry (will it EVER end?) some cleaning

                    Slow day, I almost felt like having a nap, but I didn’t ‘cause I want to go to bed early tonight!

                    The 1st 20 minutes of the local news was all about the snowstorm.

                      Fake sweeteners are gross & I think a sensitive palate that helps you avoid them is a very good thing.

                      Hope you get more good Zzz's tonight.

                      Thanks The pups are having a blast!

                      Yeah, fake sweeteners are gross.

                      I've had really good sleep for the past two nights. There must be something to the "sleep before midnight" theory...

                        • Looks like you got a good workout with all that shoveling. Great that the shovelglove is having benefits! Maybe I need to look more at the shovelglove stuff too, hubby does have a sledgehammer or 2 around.

                          Nice job on the early bed, too. I'm impressed! I'm much more of a night owl myself, even before working years of rotating 12 hour shifts, but my life is too often not compatible with that. I think you can adapt to the earlier nights along with early morning, just takes some practice.

                            You should try the shovelglove.

                              Bed at 10:30. I know. 10 pm comes SO early.
                              It surprises me and then I have all these ‘things’ to do before bed. I ‘putter’ before I go to bed.
                              About 15 minutes to fall asleep.
                              No school again today. The custodians had to do a safety check on 14 school in our board.
                              My daughter was ecstatic! Awake at 7:50, up at 8. Out the door to go shopping at 9.
                              I went to the city with my Farmer and daughter. We took the truck.
                              We bought my presents, the Farmer’s presents, and my daughter’s. No surprises this year
                              Then we bought a 47” TV!!!

                              After supper we rearranged the furniture for the new 47" TV.
                              We LOVE it! (can you tell )
                              The old one was a 27” with horizontal lines across the top of the screen.

                              It’s almost 9:30! How am I supposed to be ready for bed in a half hour?
