To those who read and commented on my last post, thanks for letting me vent. One can only take so much idiocy before you have a melt-down and we all have a stake what happens in the world. It appears many feel exactly the way I do. Anyway, today I am sharing some additional photos from Greece. We ate a lot of fruit there, the cherries were especially tasty. We also had wild plums and nectarines.
So many beautiful flowers as well.
If Greece was ever wasteful it certainly is not now. Every resource is used to it's limit including this tomato sauce can seen with growing basil in an alleyway.
I have a list a mile long of things I have to do the week he is gone, both work and personal. Last night I kept dreaming that I lost two fingers - I looked it up this morning and it appears that means I have anxiety over getting everything done/performing certain tasks on that list.
On the up side I have continued to do over 10,000 steps a day. After we returned from Greece I gave myself a few days to recuperate from jet-lag and now regularly hit 10,000 to 14,000 steps a day but my weight has plateaued at 138 and I still want to lose a few pounds so am trying to increase my steps to 11,000 or more a day now. We are still eating healthy so not sure why the plateau but it could just be my age/metabolism. One of the ways I continue to hit my step goal is trying to do 5,000 steps by noon, nearly impossible without using the treadmill. Fortunately when we moved here hubby bought a really good one used for $200. I didn't step on it until this year (he did) but now use it every day.
Next week while hubby is gone I intend to eat down/out of what is left in the fridge - no groceries were purchased this week except those needed to round out a meal or non-grocery items for hubby to take on his trip. Groceries continue to rise in price, it feels like at least 20% in the last year. I am doing what I can to combat that. The freezer is full and other than some fruit and veggies there are loads of groceries in the house.
I may not post for a few days trying to tick things off my list - I also intend to take full advantage of the beautiful weather we are having and take the dog to the beach.
