    Yeah, I only pretended to look at mine. His is far more interesting.

    And now I will NEVER wear a low-cut blouse to shoot! Ouch! I think if I go again I'll set the rifle target at 25' and work on getting it right before I move it back to 50'. I declined to shoot the bigger sniper rifle because I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with the recoil

    • Well, my steak and sweet potato dinner followed by a greek yogurt breakfast made the weight go back up for today, so we're sticking with yesterday's number. However, I am also very full, so life is good.

      I just polished off the last of the cream today, and the cheese is gone. All I have to do is eat the last serving of greek yogurt and I'm good to go on my dairy-free quest. It's going to be dairy-free-ish because I don't feel like being super strict, but it is going to be a severe reduction of dairy. I'm thinking I'll go back to broth in the morning for a while. I have lots and I bet I could use the nutritional boost.

      Mud Flinger- I got up a post about the hail recovery. Naturally, I didn't have my camera on me when I went to the garden last night, but I did have some pre-fire pictures to post.

      • Much of my garden has finished recovering as well. Funny thing is that there is a squash that is thriving right now - Turbinado. It's been setting lots of fruit while my zucchinni has too, but you always hear about zuchs going crazy and I just haven't had that problem yet. Got my water bill yesturday - ouch - $520!!! I paid it quickly and sent it on it's way - not like I had lots of choice here. The grass is still dying and the landscape is just bearly holding on in some places, but this weather too shall pass (I hope).

        • Oh my sympathetically aching wallet! That's one of the reasons I don't want property that doesn't have a well. I'm sure wells have the occasional $500 bill too, but it's not all the time!

          Hooray for squashes! I need to get my gardens rolling earlier next year so I can have stuff to start harvesting already

              • Well Good Mornin'! I have no idea why they unblocked YouTube at work, but that was an awesome clip to come in to

                We've been getting lots of rain- although that also means flash floods, now, since the trees aren't there to slow it down. Ah well. At least it's rain. Glad you're getting it, too, Mud Flinger!

                • *sigh* Well, my no-dairy is really only less dairy. I had coffee with half and half with the last of my greek yogurt for breakfast and another coffee with half and half with my salad that had cheese on it for lunch. However, I did refrain from purchasing cottage cheese at the grocery store last night even though I really wanted it. I'm working on it. Slowly, but working on it.

                  Win! My baby brother called me last night to ask how to make broth with a chicken carcass he had

                  I think I only logged 12 hours at work this weekend. We were dead. So they were just the most inconveniently timed 12 hours ever. Oh well. There was some minor annoyance that the new system isn't being used reliably, but now that I know that I just have to learn the new system of seating AND the old one at the same time, it's all good.

                  My eating was horrible this weekend which reflected itself in my weight. I really do need to get my food sorted so I can eat well, at least. Sleeping well . . . well I didn't wake up in the middle of the night last night for once. Maybe I'm getting better.

                    I thought it would be a nice little monday morning lift... I forgot about work youtube blocks... how convenient that it worked this time!

                    • It's been unblocked for about a week. Unfortunately, it makes it that much more dangerous, and tempting, to tiptoe into Blood Orchid's journal

                        I always check over my shoulder before clicking on her journal, just to make sure Benign Poltergeist isn't looking.

                        • Rain is a good thing!

                          Got that song playing in my mind "Rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, whiskey makes my baby... kinda frisky"

                          Humidity though - not at all used to that one (I know, spoiled we are)!

                          My zucchinni and beans are really taking off though - had both for dinner last night.

                          I'll be MIA for a few days - off to Ohio to visit Mom for her B-day - without the family They are just realizing now that "shewhodoesitall" is leaving - should be ... interesting!

                          Now off to check out Blood Orchid's journal - you've got me courious...

                          • Hehe- speaking of humidity . .. I have been lording it over the heads of my friends and family back east about our cooler temperatures and "high" humidity at, what, 20%? Travel safe and have fun!

                                Thanks! I am now laughing at this as you know that the first half is no way (especially with the rain and 12 muddy paws running through the house) but the second half has quite a bit of potential! The break will do us all some good ... I hope.
