Remember those trees with the coconuts hanging above the cars?
Well yesterday was tree trimming day and they are all gone.
And as far as I know none hit any cars. I'd still like to know what rocket scientist planted coconut trees in a parking lot.
I was losing pretty good in poker last night but made a rebound and ended up only losing nineteen bucks. It was a nice game and there were two big winners.
Oh, I also saw Dr. Wacks yesterday and he said I was doing excellent and if I didn't lose any more weight I was still doing fine because I am so strong and my blood work was so good but we talked about it and I DO want to lose more so I am going to see a dietitian soon.
I log everything I eat so she can look at it and see why I am not losing. I weighed the same as I did on my last visit three months ago. But he did say I am shaped much differently than I was then so it's not bad but just not good enough for me.
Next I went to see Andre' and got my torture done. I don't know why I complain, I really do like it and we laugh and make it fun.
Today I am playing cards and going out to lunch. Then tonight I am going to a party in our party room at the condo, just cocktails and nibbles and nice neighbors. I like to go and I don't have to drive anywhere, just get in the elevator and go home. Some of the condos do it all the time but that's too much I think. We are having one a month here for the season.
I postponed the cookout I was planning for a bit because I just have so much going on right now I didn't want one more thing to put me over the edge. Soon I'll do it though. I used to have big dinner parties all the time and cook everything from scratch including baking but I just don't do much of that kind of thing any more. Somehow it's just not the same without Sarge. He loved my cooking.
I remember one time he told me I was ruining the gravy and the whole meal would be ruined when we were having a house full of people. I told him to get out of the kitchen and leave it alone. When we ate he apologized and told me it was the best gravy he ever tasted. He was a good cook too. He always cooked breakfast.
So that's it from paradise for now. Come back again tomorrow and I'll still be here. Hope your day is as great as mine!
