First of all, on a very serious note, I thank everyone who has been kind enough to ask how Queenie is. In all sincerity, I appreciate your interest.
No, I haven't killed her.
No, I haven't sent her back outside to the elements.
She still opens and closes the cabinet door
She still sits on my chest when I'm trying to type
She still moons me, bites me and scratches the furniture, but....
I forgive her because she also still sleeps across my heart with her head tucked under my chin.
You may remember I promised myself back when the Queen first selected me as her slave that I would never buy her fancy feast cat food.
Well promises were made to be broken.
So I gave up my twice weekly convenience store coffee so I can provide the Queen with the best. She must have the kind with gravy. I like my gravy too so I understand her need.
Yes it is a few cents cheaper by the case
I've draped my chair in towels to keep her from scratching more holes in it. Notice the key word here is holes.
I haven't learned to speak "meow" yet, but I am learning what her majesty demands of me. I am becoming quite the expert....
... at reading her mind. Tune in next time and I will tell you what she is thinking here.
Today begins week 7 of the 5% Winter Challenge! I lost 6 pounds the first week! I was so excited, but as seems to be my pattern, I hover around that weight, losing or gaining the same few ounces, over and over again.
I found the Week 6 Living the Good Life Challenge to be very eye opening. Out of sight out of mind really wasn't true for me, but I was made more aware of how often I look for things to nosh after supper. I was good though and stuck to the plan.
Meal Planning for week 7. I am good with planning breakfast and supper, but not so great with lunch. I do find writing it down the night before to be helpful. If you are a participant in the Winter 5% Challenge, please be sure to check out the excellent meal planning resources KALISWALKER has included in the challenge details.
On to Okavango Delta, Botswana! Have a great week!
If you are not a challenge participant, we will be starting sign-ups for Spring in a couple of weeks. Check us out to see if you might be interested.
