    I wish the hummingbirds would start sipping from my hummingbird feeder! and the finches from my finch feeder! lol

    *I think they might be too close to the house. With a cat inside, they may feel it's too dangerous, even though she's trapped.

    The only other hummingbird I've seen was dead in my obese cat's mouth. How she ever caught it, I'll never know.

    Maybe she visualized!
    (Sorry, couldn't help it!)

    So, I am home from my errands with my stack of new Blue Willow to wash! And massive amounts of cake fixings for Middlest's project. Averting my eyes from those. Also, things to repair the bathroom wall, new printer ink, and library finds. I have not unpacked it all yet, as I sat down and had a chicken leg to break my fast. Delicious. Then I got up to look at journals for a bit, because my mind immediately said, 'hey, how about something else...and something after that...and, oh, yeah, everything!' But my stomach only wants one thing at a time. I'm going to wait at least an hour.

    On the annoying side, my finger is aching fit to beat the band today.

    Congratulations on the fast, and the new weight. How would I go about visualizing that all of my students pass the state exam?

    Let's see, 180 students divided by six days, 30 per day, a minute each could do it. I recommend lying down, eyes closed in a quiet room, saying "X has passed the state exam" out loud, and a bite of chocolate after each visualization, you know, to cleanse your mental palate!

    Re-feeding

    Feeling pretty good. I have a nifty stack of Blue Willow on my counter. Oh, my goodness, you should see the cuteness of the extra bowls, the ones I hadn't asked for, just surplus to our requirements. Although, now that we know about them, they are ESSENTIAL! So small, almost baby bowls, and just the right size for a scoop of ice cream with berries. I have been wanting to try that Coconut Bliss ice cream. I think I have an excuse now: it will look so cute in the bowls!

    Oh, and the eating went well, too.

    Here's how it went down:

    Up at 5:00
    Vitamins

    1:30 rotisserie chicken leg

    4:00 5 oz lambchop

    6:00 tacos
    3 romaine leaves
    3/4C ground beef, chili, onion
    1/2 tomato
    1/2 avocado
    1/3C cheddar
    6T sour cream

    Water:11 glasses

    Bed at 9:30

    There was a little sudden bowel movement at 3:15, but not painful. Then normal happenings for the rest of the day and this morning. And, charming surprise, my weight stayed the same when I hopped on the scales today. Expecting it to go up, but any extra days it wants to hang around, being low, I am happy to accept. It put me in a jolly mood.

    After eating, I felt I could have stopped after two tacos- rather full- but the amount in total doesn't seem excessive to me, so that's good.

    I meant to eat earlier, but I was so busy with errands, that it didn't happen. About noon I was even considering going another day, but that would have messed up my sashimi and gym plans, so I didn't consider it for long. Still, I felt it could be done!

    My plan for today will be to eat moderately. Maybe a little something in the morning, then my sashimi lunch, and if I want something, a little more after the workout. That's usually too late for me to eat, but I might go for it today.

    Happy day, everyone! (What is this? Am I channeling PrimalCajun? I feel very peppy and joyful!)

    LOL sounds like fun. I never read the secret because the "born again" nut inside me said "don't mess with that bad woo woo stuff". (Just being honest, not really a BA nut) I think I may download it to my nook for this long weekend.

    Actually, my numbers are better than that-85 students, 25 days to the exam. 3-4 students a day? That way I can really concentrate on the tough ones.

    I thought you could do it on your 'six-day weekend'. Get it out of the way. I've never read "The Secret' either. Didn't even know it was about visualization. Or vocalization, as the case may be.
