Thursday stuff and other stuff...

So all the excitement is about wrapped up around here, the cruise is over, the apartment is almost finished, now it's time to settle down and finish my bee bandwagon weight loss and keep exercising.  I am stronger than I ever thought I'd be again.  I amazed myself walking on that ship, it's a big ship and I walked all over it all the time.  It's cooling down so swimming is going to be hit and miss but I do plan on walking any days I can't swim.

I'll go to the grocery store soon and try to come up with some new recipes for us to try. If you have any ideas or suggestions I'd love to hear them.  I've been eating cottage cheese and pineapple at night lately.  I get on kicks where I like something and then I get tired of it and go on to something else.  Like Greek yogurt.  I ate that every day for a while and now I don't want it at all.

So I got through the first year okay.  I am told it will be easier now.  Maybe it will but I'll always miss that special guy.  I have had two incidents recently where a man sort of made comments that could be taken as advances but I shut it down right away.  I have no interest in another man.  None.  At.  All.

I guess that's about all I know today y'all.  Hope your Thursday is totally tits.  And mine too...


  1. I seem to go through stages, too. I like frozen greek yogurt but not the yogurt. I still prefer my old faithful yoplait. Or the publix brand. I have never likes cottage cheese. And I love cheese. Weird, huh?

    I dated a bit after my divorce. It wasn't for me. Or I wasn't ready for another relationship. Apparently I'm still not ready. :) Although I would love a cruise companion. But it all just seems like way too much trouble. I feel the same way about a new car. I've been looking, but it all seems like more trouble than it's worth. Bugger.

    Have an absolutely marvelous day! And me, too. I hope!

  2. I get that way too, I think it might be nice, and exactly the same.... just too much trouble. Bee had the best , dont need the rest!

  3. Hmmm, recipe suggestions?! I do admit to sticking to what I know. I can't wait for some new ideas. I have a lot of hamburg on hand. We bought from our farm neighbor, so its freshest of fresh, very lean, no preservatives or any added jazz. Would love to know if there's healthy ways to cook and enjoy that. And I always have chicken breast on hand in the freezer, too. Those are my staples that I run out of unique and healthy ideas for serving.

  4. I see that we live in Hallandale cyberly this winter. Who knew?! Great photo of you three.

    No swimming for you today in this rain and relative chill. Kids are on a 2 hr delay for school back in Podunk today. Bugger to the icy roads. I'll take this kind of chill here!

    Big hugs, honey...

  5. I have other widows tell me the second year is harder. The first year we are running here and there and trying not to think and a bit foggy--the second year reality sets in. I feel like I am doing okay, but.....who knows.

    I know what you mean about men wanting to become acquainted--I want NO MAN in my life--ever. We had the best, why would we want any of the rest!

  6. Sarge was irreplaceable. Totally understand.

    No recipes. I've been on a soup kick lately... tomato soup, chilled cucumber soup, parsnip soup...

  7. Maybe a nice stuffed pepper recipe? Also need some ideas for breakfast. And snacks. Having bandwagon approved snacks handy is helpful to prevent grabbing inappropriate snacks.

  8. Whether things are easier or harder may depend as much on attitude as anything else. Yours has always been good, so I expect good things going forward too.

  9. Bee, Men are going to hit on you. You look very nice. You are a fun loving person. I always say the sharp pain of loss will ease, but the longing goes on . You will be working out, keeping busy, that may help. I wish you well dear Bee. xoxo,Susie

  10. You look so tiny. I know I've said that before, but it's true. Look at yourself. You're tiny.

    I laughed out loud about the not wanting another man part. Well my first thought was he would come over to your place and with all that pink his **** would fall off. Bwahahahahahahahahaha.

    Sarge was indeed a very special person. I loved him too and I cried when I found out he'd passed. Lots of tears. I just want you to know how special you are to me and Sarge was almost as special. That's a lot of special.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from cold but sunny California. Love you sweetie! ☺

  11. Well I can understand a man making advances to you Bee, you look great and even though you're not interested it's nice to know you are still attractive isn't it? :)

  12. I think we all go through those food stages! Lol. I am happy to report that I did your roasted veggies for dinner last night and hubby loved them!
    Of course men will hit on you , you are beautiful and full of life. My dad says it did get easier after that one year mark, but he still misses my mom everyday. HUGS

  13. I'm that same way. It's like one track food mind. Then, boom. I'm over it. Gotta scoot. Need to go see my sewing ladies. Have a great day, Bee. When does canasta and mahjong start up again?

  14. Ciao!!!
    So proud of you, you plan everything for your health, for your fine home, for the free are a special woman, and you can also get new esperiences, like interesting cohoperation in weight loss programs, or consultant for "home styling", decor, cruise consultant too etc...
    Have a lovely afternoon!

    Big hugs!!!

  15. Bee,

    Of course you will have men interested in you. You are smart, kind, beautiful and funny. Just enjoy the attention knowing you don't need it because you had the best.

    Big Hugs,


  16. Hi Bee. I'm feeling down after a great cruise. I want to back on the ship especially returning to the situation regarding my mother. My siblings are sending me constant emails wanting to know about mom and I just got home. Gee whiz, just give me chance to get my barrings, one in Alberta, Canada and the other in Ontario. I don't know if they really understand my situation. Oh well my mess.
    Now, yes, MaryLou & I really had a tremendous cruise. The cruise itself was great but being part of the Bloggers Cruise was a great plus but most of was the chance to seeing you again and Chuck & Cat.
    About the man who might have an interest, I can see why but you are correct, Charlie was the best and it will never be another Charlie. MaryLou has said to me that if I was to pass away there could never be another man like me. Uhm I wonder what that means? Ha,ha,ha.
    You are fantastic lady my lovely friend. I know it was late writing. We spent most of the day running around doing things for mom and later spending time with her. We just got home and I'm very tired so I'm going to say good night my wonderful friend. See you tomorrow.



you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
