It always feels a little warmer out at our house than it is in town, and the sun was shining, so I decided to take my Frankie out for a short walk today. Of course, poor Zappa was left behind in the yard.
It always makes me feel bad that I’m leaving him behind, but Frank doesn’t seem too concerned – he’s looking off in the opposite direction.
I was just thinking the other day that it was probably time to charge my camera battery, and sure enough it started flashing the low battery icon at me today. So I put it in my pocket and we continued on our way.
We got to the top of the hill and came face to face (or just about) with two deer. I whipped out my camera hoping it still had enough juice for a shot or two.
I know it’s probably hard to tell from photos, but I was really close and had an extremely clear view. I got the one regular shot, and the zoom, then turned my camera off.
We walked a bit farther around, and came to a spot where I had an unobstructed view so I pulled out my camera and turned it on again. When it comes on it makes a little chime sound; I’m not sure if that was what did it or if they finally decided I was too close because they took off. There actually was a third one further in that I hadn’t been able to see. They sure can move fast when they want to.
When Frank & I came back in, it was time to make supper. I had been thinking we’d defrost a bag of shrimp and throw something together, but Husband had to come home and do some more work so he wanted to defrost spaghetti sauce.
So we had a salad & spaghetti (photos taken with my iPhone).
And I took this photo to remind myself…
I decided to try food blogging for accountability to myself. I know that my eating habits aren’t perfect, but I think of them as being not too bad either. I figured this would be a good way to figure out where I do have issues.
I’ve mostly done pretty good about taking pictures of everything, but things got a little out of control this weekend with too many treats around the house. And of course some of it was still hanging around after the weekend – specifically Girl Guide Cookies and M&M’s. It is just too easy to grab a cookie or a handful of M&M’s on the way through the kitchen without taking a picture. I think that I will remember and make a note of it when I do my evening food blogging, but by the time I get around to it I’m always rushing to get it done and counting on the photos to remember what I ate. So I forget.
So here’s the rundown:
Tuesday – 4 cookies
Wednesday – 3 cookies (finally they are gone)
Today – several (too many) handfuls of M&M’s.
The issue is that they are sitting on the hutch in plain site. They need to go away in a cupboard somewhere. Husband is objecting to this, but it’s going to happen anyway. And, I’m going to be more careful of taking pictures from now on. Not that I object to a treat here and there, but I am trying to pay attention and be mindful of what I’m eating. Cramming M&M’s into my mouth on the way through the kitchen is not mindful.
