    Those were delicious Aussie! We kids would find someone with a grape arbor in the neighborhood and chobble away on the sun warmed bunches. They didn't taste anything like something from the store. Gosh I had forgotten that flavor. That was back when little kids could roam the neighborhood all summer long from morning til dusk and just run home for meals.

    Yesterday turned out to be a high calorie day for me, 1423, and it snuck up on me. I didn't eat anything new but my combination of food was more than I realized. I was gobsmacked when I did my totals! I'm not sure if it had an effect because my weight is still the same 216.

    Breakfast - clementine, 1 1/2 c dry cereal

    Lunch will be eggs, dinner probably chicken, yam, salad.

    Hi there ladies. I posted a while ago but it went off to never land.

    We didn't go for sushi last night so I consoled myself with a burrito, fries and a soda. Way too many carbs and I fell asleep. I woke up at a loud noise and then everything started rocking and rolling. It was a friendly little 5.1 earthquake centered about 15 miles away from where I live. We're all fine and I haven't heard about any serious damage anywhere.

    I don't know what I'm going to be eating today but it will be better and healthier than what I had last night. So far I've had coffee and a granola bar. Some kind of chicken sounds good except of course

    That's it for now. I'll check back later.

    bigred53 replied to bigred53's response:
    Wow we just had another small earthquake. Probably an aftershock of the one last night. Even little ones are a bit scary.

    ladylavender replied to bigred53's response:
    Wow, Michelle, where do you live? CA? I'm in TN, and occasionally there is a tiny rumble in this region but nothing like CA. There is a major fault running under TN, though.

    Judy, I hope spring has sprung for you, too! The weather here is teasing us..Grrr, but the forecast is for much warmer weather this week. I just enjoy the times when I don't have to run the HVAC at all!! Love those lower electric bills, ha.

    I live in good old Southern California between LA and San Bernardino. "They" say it's better to have a bunch of little quakes because they release the pressure thereby reducing the chance of THE BIG ONE. People don't realize there are quakes everywhere. There are a lot in Montana but you never hear about them because of the low population.

    At least an earthquake is over with quickly. They don't hang around like snow. hey I'm trying to look on the bright side.

    I decided on rotisserie chicken with pinto beans, rice, potato salad, hot salsa and corn tortillas. I got enough for lunch and dinner without over doing it. No soda either. I would have liked some hibiscus tea but it's sweetened so I decided against it. It sure is good though. I need to make my own.

    When we lived in Northern California there were a lot of vineyards. One of them let the public pick the grapes from the vines that grew on the fence. They were the best. Ever since I have always been disappointed in the grapes I bought at the store until I discovered champagne grapes. Finally the taste I'd been searching for. Its you ever see any at the store grab some. I don't ever see concord grapes either. I don't even mind the seeds. Oh well. ...

    Later my friends. I need to drink some water.
