TOPS good news bad news

The past two weeks at TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) I was down .6 (six tenths) of a pound each week. I was BUMMED.. I weighed on Wed and was down 2 pounds. Thursday am, only down .6.
I had been losing at least 1 or 2 pounds a week. now 2 weeks in a row I gained 1.4 over night.

Our guest speaker, a life time member of Weight Watchers taught us how to read labels.

After the meeting I pulled out  Orrville Redenbacher Simply Salted Seasalt in a bag that is ready to eat after 2 minutes in the microwave.  The above is the label from that popcorn.

one bag, 2800 gr salt, 170 calories 100 from fat, 7 servings + 1200 calories. Total Water Retention 1.4 pounds over night.

GOOD NEWS IS. I was down 2 pounds this Thursday and that is a total of 19.. woo hoo

I had to go buy a popcorn popper and a jar of popcorn... because

Air-popped popcorn contains only 31 calories per cup. MYNEW problem is it taste like dirt without salt. any ideas??????  the new pot is for veggies, I only had 2 large pots and 1 small because I HATE COOKING... but I am doing it. COOKING I mean. as little as possible.

LG Smart Phone @ Wal-Mart..and ME, myself and I

The elementary school cook prided herself on the healthy meals she provided with lots of vegetables and fruits. .

When the power failed one day, the cook couldn't serve a hot meal in the cafeteria, so at the last minute she whipped up great stacks of peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches.

As one little boy filled his plate, he said, "It's about time. At last, a home-cooked meal!"

Home Sweet Bird Home

Home Sweet Home, Spring has sprung
I merged 2 photos, one of a birdhouse, one the trees in my back yard. Yes, I used PicMonkey. the Subject is Spring..

I have been thinking of things to say to you, Owl night long...yes, I know toucan play at this game, but I have only me. I could not think very well because I was up all night reading Tequila Mockingbird. Then I had a thought.... Do you realize humans cut down birdhouses to build birdhouses?  Hawkward, Huh???

There She Blows..

Trust your calculator, you can always count on it. Question: if you drop your brownie on your calculator are you fudging your numbers?

Your mission should you decide to take it, is  compare the size of the flower to my fingers and IGNORE the wrinkles...   Is Irony the opposite of Wrinkly?

Window of opportunity....

I first tried Windows Explorer but I could find no windows puns, probably because they are transparent...... even if I could find a pun, it might be to paneful to read.
Update these are not bars but vertical blinds
I did find a few One Liners.....
Sign on a music store window"  "come in and pick out a drum- then beat it!

Some burglars are always looking for windows of opportunity.

The carpenter shuddered at the thought of exposed windows.

Found these on Puns and Jokes....

Wal-Mart Rose Garden

Wal-Mart never promised me a rose garden, but I found one early AM Saturday Morning... Whipped out the cell phone and here you are..

Showing you roses could be a thorny issue. I am not sure what this post stems from, but whatever it is you are stuck with it....

Through a glass darkly

Ginny and Jo always post gorgeous moon shots on FB and on their blogs. I saw Jo's post on FB the day of the time change. Gorgeous moon. I went outside and you can see what I got.. NADA.
Above, the camera slipped, below who knows..

Here is what I GOT... through a glass darkly....who cares about a silly old moon shot when I can get a photo of our recycle trash can, plus this is proof it was dark outside.

The Case of the Lighted Hibiscus

A thought hit me suddenly. Watt would a hibiscus look like lighted? Since I am always well grounded, I plopped said hibiscus on the white lights in the nook. Shocked are you??

Wattever you are thinking right now, I love you watts and watts.... All I have to say is Cheers to Benjamin Franklin, without him, I would be sitting here in the dark and you would not be reading my silly puns...  I leave you with this...

What do electrician's chant when they meditate???  Ohmm Ohmm

Looking UP and Down..

Our Avocado tree is about 3 stories high now. in the top photo you can see the roof lines on either side. the tree is so big I can't get the whole tree in a photo..
Below this Red Admiral comes to visit every day at 4:30, they are territorial and come back to the same place at the same time each day. He sat on Bob's head, my head, my back and arm several times. Each day we go out and wait for him to come to sit on us.
A Little Thing Causing Much Joy...

One Thing Leads to Another..

Sometimes when I visit a friends blog, it is like a challenge to me. I visited Ann at SnapEditScrap and This Post was one I liked and wanted to duplicate. Since I am Craft Challenged, I brought my orange hibiscus inside to see what I could do by sitting it on a book... I chose my TOPS food journal.. The photo was ok, but no bokeh that I liked so much, thus the Lunapic Beauty edit above.

Now if only I could write so you could read what I ate on the 13th....

Coming Soon.... my electrified hibiscus...

Anole Almost Wordless Wed.

I spied with my camera eye this  lone green fern growing up at the rusty propane tank, I snapped twice before I saw the small visitor sunning himself. We love our brown Anole. He is every bit as cute as the Geico Gecko.

There were 20 Ibis in our front yard on Sunday which is a common sight in Florida, like Robins in the north.

A little known fact about these birds is As the clouds become dark and a hurricane approaches, folklore maintains that other birds look to the Ibis for leadership. 

I named the three above, Duck Rogers, Duckbill Gates and Duck Norris...
I am winging it today on puns, hope I did not ruffle your feathers.. and if your feathers are ruffled, stop being such a turkey... not my fault there are no Ibis Puns to be found in the wide wide world.

Priors Posts on these birds are HERE...

Osprey OPP

I came out of my TOPS meeting (down 1 more pound this week, total 16) and there was a man standing by his car holding up his phone, I grabbed my camera from my car and focused. The Osprey was so far away it required the full 60 zoom to see it. I snapped the shot and he took off, the Osprey, not the man.  my camera is so slow I missed most of it. he flew out of the photo, leaving me with the only option... put both pics in on collage.  I think this looks like Mr. And Mrs. Osprey...

Eat your hearts out, Hootin Anni, Eileen and Ruth, my 3 Birder Blogger Friends... and what is a bird pic but an opportunity to play in PicMonkey?
