This little baby is over two years old and has never had one day without blooms. It gets a drink on Thursdays with one drop of African Violet food and that's it. Can you imagine the joy it has brought me all those months?
So yesterday I decided to go to the pool while Steve and Jane were there and it was the perfect time to go! No one else is there and the water temperature is the same as the air temperature (84) so it does not feel cold at all when you get in and it is warmer when you get out so that feels good too. That's my new pool time, at least for the summer. I hope no one else discovers how great it is!
But I did have a bit of excitement while I was there. I was merrily jogging back and forth when I glanced over to the deep side and saw something moving. Oh no! A snake in the water with me! About that time a guy walked by and I asked him to see if it was a snake, he looked and said it sure was. I hightailed it out of the water and he went in and got the manager who in turn got the maintenance guy who came out and got the skimmer to get it out.
It was a palm frond. Sigh... It sure wiggled around like a snake! Too funny, and I was sure glad that's all it was. Of course the first thing I think of is "I'm totally blogging about this!". Guess I'll have to start taking the camera with me in case anything else interesting comes along.
I have a question and I can't find the answer. Take a banana, it has roughly 100 calories. When it just under ripe it's not sweet or as sweet as when it's more ripe. The riper it gets the sweeter it tastes. Does the calorie count change? It's the same thing with corn only in reverse. It's sweeter when it's first picked and the sugar goes down and the starch goes up each day after. Well until it's canned or frozen that is, but I can see where that would stay the same in calories but not bananas.
Along those same lines you know I am on weight watchers, but not the new points plus program. I don't know about that one. Anyway the one before let you eat raw carrots or onions for 0 points but if they were cooked they had a points value. The explanation I was given in a meeting was that the sugar content went up when they were cooked. (?)
I know. I think too much don't I? Some days I can't help it. Now today I have swimming in the morning, canasta in the afternoon and poker tonight. Totally tits day for me! Hope yours is the same.
