Tuesday Thoughts and Stuff

  • Good grief. I got the worst bruise on my left leg that showed up this weekend. It looked horrible. Now...other side, same thing. My legs looked either abused/beaten or diseased. (There's a strong possibility that some kid has the crazy leg in her sleep.)
  • In 24 days, I will be pigging out on some yummy turkey, ham and all the fixings with family in Arkansas. I look forward to that.
  • That would also make Christmas 53 days away. Sound like a big number? Think again.
  • I already have Christmas presents hidden in various places around my little shack.
  • Did you notice twitter now has lists that you can create? I like that.
  • I don't like this tweet. They have over 2,000 followers?
  • 15 Good Reads. I was actually crafty enough to download one of them to my iphone through the gmail using the GoodReader App.
  • My entire house last night was asleep by ten am. That whole get up in the middle of the night thing wore us all out!
  • My younger daughter, in the middle of a long story, adds that she hardly ever talks. I laughed out loud.....(she takes after me....but worse!!)
  • I can't believe that they have been in school for 50 days already!
  • Oddly, I only got, one pic of my Halloween costume, which was a nurse...but my hair looked crazy in the pic thanks to the headband....I sent an email out to a wonderful friend begging for a couple of pics she took.
  • My girls had fun too. I angrily hollared at them to NOT bring candy home because we already had too much at home.....they came home with a big bag full. Nice.
  • Then one of the guys brings candy to work to add to my candy dish. That crazy mug brought chocolate!!! Can you believe that? (Pictured.)
  • I'm gonna have a rough time resisting that chocolate stuff.
  • Weekly weigh in showed another half pound lost. Don't worry, you don't have to hate me cause I'm so skinny....I'm surrounded by Butterfingers and Snickers--throw in the family Thanksgiving dinner coming up--I'll be right back up there in no time.
  • Out.

Think of every little fat globule in chocolate, gravy and butter as a dimple on your butt and you will NOT be so tempted or eager to eat butt dimples.

Sigh....well, now that you put it that way.

To Kat...
Thinking of fat globules and carbs as butt dimples is what keeps me from weighing 300lbs. I do not care much for sweets but, each month, I could eat 1/2 my weight in bread, pasta, buttered potatoes, creamed sausage gravy and homemade cheese biscuits and would if I did not mind hail damage and heart disease.

My creamed sausage gravy, made with butter never sausage grease, is so good friends have me make it for them to eat during the week. I rarely eat more than a tablespoon of the stuff, if I eat any, but it is something I could eat like soup.

I read recipes and imagine eating and tasting the food to such detail I imagine smelling, chewing, tasting and swallowing bites. Believe it or not, I have done that for so many years, I do not need to eat the food to feel sated.
