Pretty good day overall (a bit grumpy for a while but got over it)
Breakfast: Omlette with mince stew and a little cheese - yum! Black tea with milk and cream and stevia
Lunch: hamburger patty and 1/2 cup of applesauce with little dollop of cream, black tea with cream and milk and stevia
Dinner: 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, fritata with brocolli, cauliflower, onion and garlic, and a little cheese, 1 cup strawberries and cream.
I have been on my feet all day except for about 15 minutes this afternoon for a quick break, meals and my music practice. I shovelled and moved 2 1/2 wheelbarrows (8 cu ft) full of soil. My hands get sore from moving the heavy wheelbarrow so that is my limit at the moment. I am sure I'll get some callouses before long and then will get more loads. Pretty good workout nonetheless. I spent quite a bit of time on the computer doing my Irish language course - so I did 40 squats to break the standing up a little. Feels good. No pullups today, but feel good anyway.
I know I should be grateful for this place we are renting but there are times I get so frustrated. My folks are living in SC waiting for us to get settled in a place that will accomodate them too. We saw each other over Christmas but it is a long way away. They are not getting any younger and really do need a bit of help, they moved to the USA to be with us and now they are stuck in SC waiting for our business to get off the ground enough that the bank will loan us money to buy property ....
Anyway, I know it will all work out in the end - just the process that isn't much fun sometimes. I am tired and going to head for bed. Sleep well ladies! I do love reading all your journals - I just don't have enough time in my day to keep up! I have to get better at prioritizing my life as the things that are important get set aside for the interesting. I have to get some of the basics in place and then add the extras, so not good at this!
