Ohh the is so in the bag!! Nuts always available, pecans and almonds pretty much a staple, cashews often.. and lean meats also.. although bacon has a way of sneaking into meals often.. ha.. rib-eye too.. guess not so lean.. but the flank steak and chicken, fish are fine.. Asparagus occasional.. breads are on my no no list right now but if I do eat toast, its always whole grain..with real butter.. maybe I should've stopped at the nuts, and not told on self.. :-) ha
Vicki, Patti, Carolyn, thanks gals, your E's bring me a grin and feel of fuzzy. :-). so glad someone sent me some nudges! . :-)
Photo, snapped at Hobbitonville in New Zealand.. and I bet there's lots of chromium rich foods portrayed here! :-)
Insurance policy checked over yearly for changes if needed. dc done.
Painting, acrylic, painted several years ago... but it works for this dc..
Insurance can be a good thing, never know when something might come up missing.. title of this one.. "He Stole My Heart".
Vicki & Candace, thank you sweet ladies for the E's! Nudges always bring me a smile!!! thanks again!! I can't do any impulse buying.. well.. okay, maybe that Hersey bar won't count! ha! I'll do better next time since I read this!! and.. because I seldom do impulse buying anyway, unless it's some smile maker.. then.. maybe. :-). okay okay, I won't!!
Photo.. we traveled cross a huge lake on this old steamer to a sheep farm, had just gotten off to eat supper and watch some sheep shearing.. it was a planned event not impulse although when we travel, we do lots of impulse things!! The roads less traveled! :-)
Patti, thanks for the nudge! I'll have to go online for this.. but will check it out. I figure my 'personal' finance column is my checkbook lines! hahah..
Bob.. this one's New Zealand, Doubtful sound.. so pretty there too!
The cloud column across the lower mt is prettier to read than a finance column in a newspaper anyday! :-)
Wrote down a couple! now to keep them! :-). dc done. and yes, has to do with art.. Will be putting a percent of each painting sold this mo towards a future art related event.. which means I have to go back to 1st of mo and that will catch 3 paintings.. 2 more on books for this mo.. plus?? DC done!
Big smiles and thank you's go out to my sweet E givers!! I think I've been to each of your posts.. Vicki, Patti, Debbie & Candace.. thank youuuu!
photo.. buffalo I visited some time ago, NOT a small manageable critter by any means! I'm glad DC just wanted a manageable financial goal!
Track every purchase made today.. wll.. since I'm home and may not even go out.. if I order something online.. I'll do what I usually do and record it then put it in the 'file'.. sure not using my phone for that.. dc done. (phone might be handy if I was on a trip, but an envelope for receipts works fine and no recording required, they are recorded right there on the receipt!
photo.. a little deer that is actually a covered dish.. the top part come off.. if it were larger I could keep lists of purchases inside of it.. but for now.. it holds some jelly bellies.. :-)
I nearly always cook enough for our meal plus a lunch for hubby to take next day, maybe for me too.. and when cook a lot.. it's stew, roast or soup.. and yes, freeze some for spare quick lunches!! Will do this sometime agin, this week! Salmon planned tomorrow so maybe Tues I'll fix big pot of stew or chili.. :-) DC done.
Double batches of thank you's and smiles go out to Patti & Candace! thanks gals, your E's are appreciated!!
Pic is the watercolor I have on my board now.. still need to do a few little tweaks to his head but nearly ready for frame.. a double batch of paint brush will finish this one.. haven't given it a title yet..
Automatic bill pays.. already done.. so nice to not have to worry when or if.. it's just done. and so.. DC done too. :-)
Patti, Karen, Wanda, Candace! Thank you drear sweet gals for thinking of me and sending me a nudge to jiggle my old bones to get this one done!! :-) lol.. I appreciate ya'll!!!
Wanda& Patti, I have one painting to finish soon, an art reception tomorrow afternoon, about 65 miles north.. then another home portrait to begin.. but will find time to relax tomorrow eve! :-). Thanks gals, ya'll keep me remembering to take care of me! Karen, I hope your Sunday is wonderful!! Candace.. Wishes for puuuurfect Sunday cuddles to you. :-)
pic, another of the miniatures that went to show.. this one is around 3x4 inches.
Title.. "Four Longhorns". Yep, 4 of those big critters in this tiny painting.. of course the front three are like automatic bill payments.. they are there ready to swing into view when needed.. but not seen now. haha.. and still, photos not showing colors well.. but fair.
Snow teases tonight, 13 degrees, but too dry to actually let snow happen I think.
A good time to be inside with hubby & the critters, warm home, hot tea and peace & quiet. :-).
