Father's Day

I have not done well on my calorie intake for 3 days now. I am so full right now that I am mad at myself. I have got to get back on track tomorrow. I really wanted to be below or at 200 pounds by the end of June. I just hope I have not gained any weight. I hate having to lose the some pounds over again. 

Today was Father's Day. I have missed my dad today and really wish he was here to spend time with me and my family. I really wish that I had pictures of me and my dad fishing, riding horses, and many other adventures that we had. No available cameras like today. I hope that Farmer had a good Father's Day. I made spaghetti for him which is not really his favorite food but we went to Wendy's and got a frosty in a sugar waffle cone. It was really good!! I think what he is the most happy about is that he is out of chickens.

We worked in the garden this weekend. Our garden is looking really good but the weather man is calling for 90's and not much chance of rain. I hope we at least get a pop up. Our garden is really looking good.

We have 6 tomatoes growing in our cold frame and they are also doing well.

These are as tall as me and Clay.

They are loaded in tomatoes.

Feeling better....

I am feeling better. I am so happy that I am really feeling so much better. I have finally got some energy back and my back is feeling much better. I am happy to say I finally got the fluid back off I gained from the iv and being sick. This helped me to feel better. I could not figure out how I gained 3 pounds when I was so sick. Sorry about my toes. I had brown toenail polish on and I could not get it all off. I will try to get more off today.

I am so excited I did not get a picture of this Friday. I woke up with cold chills and the fever that I did not have bad like Saturday. I took a shower and breakfast and got ready for a trip to the zoo. I took my camera but I did not get to many good pictures even though I remember to take my glasses with me I did not remember to take them in the zoo with me. Oh well my pictures were blurry and not real clear. 


I love this picture of my boys with the mamaw. 

It is so hard to get them  both to look. 


We had a good time at the zoo. I felt fine just tired a little but would never have thought I was sick. Later when we got home, we all went over to the pond to relax. I got some pictures of a summer tanager pair over there. Along with a  indigo bunting and some cow birds.

A cow decided to take a swim and watched us sitting on the pier taking her picture.
Cow cooling off.
I also got a pair of doves on the gate but it is kind of blurred because I was to far away. 

We left from the pond and went back to check on the chickens. There was a small bird that was just sitting there.
a little dazed

By the time we got in the house it was getting dark and I was getting tired and cold. I had another cold chill and covered up with my snuggie and took a nap. I thought it had just been a long day. Oh well. Thanks for stopping by.

So weak

I feel so weak. I am 47 years old and I can not ever remember feeling this bad. Yesterday I felt like all I did was nap. I did manage to go get some groceries with lots of help from my family but it wore me out. I really want to just take a nap right now. I went out with the farmer this morning and walked around the yard. I have folded some towel and Seth put them away for me. Seth is such a helper I don't know what I would do with out him. He keeps all of my laundry washed and dried. I weigh this morning and I am so aggravated. I am hoping the weight gain I am see is all from the iv fluids and the kidney infection. I really think it has to be because I have not really eaten bad. I did not even take a picture of my weight loss last week. I got down to 209.6 and I am up 3 pounds today. So frustrated! I have not eaten bad and I think that it has to be from fluids. Oh well, I just want to feel better.

I have not even been interested in taking pictures for my photo challenges that I do. I let someone pick the one for June and it is hard to come up with a photo idea. The title says that it is a photo journal challenge so I can see where they come up with ideas like the last movie you watched or night activities???? LOL Oh well. I am getting off here to rest. I am so sleepy. Pray that I soon feel better.

hay and sick

Sorry I have not wrote a blog post in a while but I have been busy and sick. It is the craziest thing. I have been chasing birds, watching  Farmer has been helping his dad get up hay and me and the boys have been watching him The boys love watching tractors. We sat over in the pasture for 5 1/2 hours watching farmer on the bobcat  unloading hay  and putting it in the barn. My back started hurting while sitting on the Kawasaki mule. I did not feel well that night and I got real cold I was shivering. I took two ibuprofen and went to bed. Thursday we went back to watch farmer load and unload hay. Oh after 50 years of marriage father in law  taught mom to drive the tractor.  She was so proud of herself.

Thursday night I went out with the farmer to take a picture of night activities. We walked up to the chicken houses to try to get a picture of the raccoon that is in the compost bin every-night or the owl that we seen up there the night before. Did not get either one. Thursday night I did not sleep worth a crap. I was real restless tossing and turning low back was hurting again I woke up around 4 oclock and had to go to the bathroom. Went back to bed and woke up and 5 am shivering again. I snuggled up real close to the Farmer and put the afghan on. I got up and took some more ibuprofen and went back to bed only waking up around 7 sweating. I got up and went to the zoo with mama in law and the boys. walked the whole zoo felt fine. We went over to the pond and took some pictures of the birds when we got home I started aching and was starting to get cold again. I got my pajamas on and snuggled up in my snuggle with my corn heating pad. I took a short nap and woke up sweating. I sweated until I went to bed. I slept pretty good waking up around 6 am and had to go to the bathroom.When I laid back down I started getting cold. I was shivering and shaking. Farmer woke up and told to go take a hot shower I was so cold I could not get warm. I throw up and was so cold shaking and could not get warm. I got the farmer to take my temperature it was 104.7. I was almost hyper-ventilating. I got the farmer to call his mom to come and see about me. She took me to the ER and I found out that I have a really bad kidney infection. I have never been told that I have ugly urine that it was really bad. I had to be hooked up to an iv for fluids and antibiotic through my iv. I have never had a bladder infection that I did not feel bad. Never thought it was that bad.
