My Day Today

Today my Pastor and our music director from our church are coming to spend the afternoon with us. I am so excited! We hadn't been able to get to our church since the fall. Winter is tough at our house. Can't leave our house alone or our stoves go out and when we go to church we are gone for hours. It is also a long drive. So I haven't seen them in some time. My husband wanted me to make them some kind of a goody to go with coffee. I have absolutely no white flour in my house anymore. I have whole wheat and whole wheat bread flour as I used to bake all my own bread. I had to think of something. So instead we bought a loaf of store bread and some milk and am going to make Bread Pudding. One of my husband's favorite desserts. I used to enjoy it too. I have no longing for it anymore. It's an easy thing to make so that takes care of that problem.
I belong to the Paperbackswap club and got another book by Dr. Atkins, Atkins For Life. It is really good. I am reading the whole thing in the next few days. It helps to keep me focused. He just makes so much sense. I know because my mother in-law was a diabetic who adjusted her own insulin. She ended up losing both of her legs and passed away January of last year. She had a lot of problems but she ate what she wanted. I think she has played a big part in how I stuck to my new eating plan when I started out. Now it's the plan itself. This forum is a huge help also. I like coming here and reading everyone's posts and how they handled things. I like to read the older posts and blogs. And love the Five A Day!
My new computer is being shipped today so I should have it next week. I cannot wait. It is the first brand new computer I have ever had. I needed it for my online business and for my church website. My husband and I designed a site for our church and now I am learning how to do the video work on it. So I will be very busy between the two, and needed a more powerful computer. Energy star too.
I have to have energy efficient appliances as we generate our own power and when you do that you have to be aware of your power usage at all times. That is why at this time I do not have a refrigerator or a freezer. We are saving our money to buy solar refrigeration. Up until a year ago we had propane refrigeration but decided to save that money toward our new appliances. So I cannot stock up on food and stick it in my freezer. I usually have to can it. That works though.
Have a great LC day!
