OK, much better day today! Wasn't really hungry and while I ate breakfast and dinner I probably could have gotten away with a fast after the amount I ate yesterday. But, I skipped lunch as we were travelling (car shopping again!) and didn't want to trigger my travelling and eating issues MUCH better this way, the rest of the family were munching away and I really wasn't upset by that. They all had healthy food - I just didn't need any. I took 1/3 cup of macadamias with me which I ate late afternoon on our way home.
Breakfast: 2 fried eggs, kippered herrings, big bowl of salad, black tea with cream and stevia
Lunch: black tea with cream and stevia
Snack: 1/3 cup of macadamias
Dinner: 6 bantam fried eggs (equates to 2 large eggs LOL) 6 strips of thick bacon, big bowl of salad.
WE GOT A 'NEW' VEHICLE!! Bought a second hand, really nice condition, used SUV today. And a bonus plus is that I love the colour too - a deep red / burgundy colour. I was really hoping we could find something other than white - we have had a bunch of white vehicles so this is going to be fun! So now this South African who is very nervous of driving in the snow has 4 wheel drive for when it gets interesting We are set to go camping now too - as soon as the nights are warm enough that we won't freeze in our warm weather tent! Can't wait - we just adore camping and only went once last year. For whatever reason we just never did get around to camping in South Carolina. I think that with all the stress and nonsense going on it was just one too many things to cope with.
Rambling on as I am wont to do ... sorry!
Lopisheep - those search lights can be the pits! Did you get the cloth up for tonight? Music practice entails me blowing my heart out on my practice chanter (bagpipes) and trying to learn to march in time too. Just at the beginning stages of all this and there is so much for me to learn. It is so much fun though to look back and see where I am now. I have never learned to read music though I do have a good ear and play the harmonica by ear. Mess around on the guitar a little - but this is the first time I have really gotten 'stuck in' and I have been slaying the reading music dragon! I had an absolute block with regards to learning to read music and I am systematically persevering through one baby step at a time. I get overwhelmed and shut down at times but Hubby is very good at helping me with my rhythm questions (he is a really good drummer) I had a piper tell me to take my time learning the basics and to not let anyone push me into going too fast. Turns out he knows the piper who is my teacher and that is exactly what he tries to do with me all the time! I always feel like I am floundering out of my depth when I am being taught by him. So, my strategy is to go to a lesson, and then skip a few weeks while I practice on my own at home. I have an excellent tutorial book that hubby bought me and I just keep working my way through that bit by bit. Then, when I feel ready to face him I go to another lesson. If it wasn't free I probably wouldn't go to this guy - but there are some aspects of the bagpipes that are better taught in person, and it is so neat meeting a bunch of other pipers and getting to hear the band practicing!! Gets me so motivated to persevere when I am feeling stuck. There, that is my long answer to your short question
