I am having a relaxing day at home… or at least I'm trying to stay relaxed! It feels like there is always so much to do and I feel like I'm constantly running behind. Last night my hubby and I went to see fireworks. I wanted to go on Sunday night because I knew we wouldn't get home until late and I would be too tired to go tonight and then have to get up at 4am to go to work on Tuesday morning!
I love to take photos of the fireworks, and this year I had to use my son's Nikon Coolpix S630 point and shoot since when I replaced my old Nikon point and shoot with a newer Nikon point and shootNikon Coolpix L100, I learned that the L100 did not include the fireworks mode. I was very upset about this, since Nikon had included the fireworks mode on their online description of the camera. But I use my camera for food pictures much more than I do for taking fireworks so I just had to learn to live with it.
I got to bed really late last night… around 2am, and I ended up sleeping in to 11am! So of course it felt as if half the day was gone, because literally it was!
I have been washing dishes and clearing counter space in hopes to get another batch of sauerkraut started. As I mentioned in earlier posts I am making a concerted effort to get in more ferments. Tomorrow after work I will be picking up some water kefir grains. I hope that I am able to keep them alive and well this time.
I also have a pot of chicken vegetable soup cooling down on the stove. This is from stock that I made last weekend, and never got around to making into soup.
I don't know how long it takes to feel the effects of the creme I'm using. I'm thinking it takes awhile to build up in the system… it seems that I feel a small amount more of energy, but I'm not sure.
Also, here is a weight update. On June 1st, I weighed 180.8#. On July 1st, I weighed 180.4#. I was thrilled to see that number. Why? Because if I can't lose weight I am delighted to stay right here. I just don't like seeing the number go up.
I hope you are having a good day today. I am feeling tired, even though I only got up about five hours ago. I am going to try to get to bed early tonight, but that means I need to focus and get the sauerkraut made, and get the quiche made so that dinner is early.
In the photo you see above of me and my husband, I superimposed fireworks behind us with photos that I took, shot with my son's Nikon S630 point and shoot, set on the fireworks mode. Here are the original photos. I love playing with Photoshop. 🙂
