Thursday: I made some great chili. Its my favorite chili ever, I think. Because it was not too spicy hot, and it had a good meat to bean ratio, and because the meat was not ground beef, I think. It was the chili Marsha made for us when we were down in Anaheim at the rug retreat. I ran it through the calorie calculator, and it came out pretty low, depending on how many servings you divide it into. I ended up making it 6 servings, and it was about 200 calories. Here’s the recipe.
Friday: Hey, isn’t the internet a fantastic thing? Mr. Monk’s vet had quit his practice here in Pine Grove. I needed his meds renewed, and I also needed to have a vet see him, and I was just dreading going to new vet and trying to explain about Mr. Monk’s problems. It finally occurred to me that I could find his old vet on the internet, because I knew the city he had moved to. I typed in: dr johnson veterinarian placerville, just like that. I know. Dr. Johnson. But what do you know, he popped up on the first try! It was totally worth it to drive an hour to see a doctor that knew me and knew Mr. Monk. And, I got some good advice on what vet to try in my town! I have to admit, I was very relieved with the positive outcome of that visit, and I did do a little celebratory eating. And yarn buying 🙂
Saturday: A good day to stay in the house and enjoy the coziness. Before the rain started, however, I brought in a ton of firewood, and pruned two big bushes. Yay for functional exercise. Because I sure didn’t get much other exercise.
We finally got our much needed rain here in Northern California. Tonight as I was pushing the little dogs out the front door in the pouring rain, something small and black ran INTO the mudroom. What? Was it even too much rain for you, little frog?
So today, Sunday, I had a kind of weird eating day. I think maybe it happened because I got a little too hungry. I just didn’t want to eat much of my regular choices. And I had too many dessert/snack type foods. I ended the day by remembering to do my PT exercises. Oh well. Its all in a lifetime.
