Randy, I'd love to visit you and have you teach me a thing or fifty about mushrooms.

If those meals are bland, that's not good.  Most seniors, like me, are loosing a lot of taste sensitivity, and a lot of things are already bland.  The least they could do is give them some packets of hot sauce and such.

And another plus for going to bed at 7 is no television! If you're not into sports, there's little to watch anyway. The main thing for older people is to stick to a routine (and get 8 hrs of sleep).

Now back to food: I fixed rice and mushroom soup last night. The mushroom was a "chicken in the woods" that grows on dead (usually) trees. And it tastes and has the texture similar to chicken, albeit a little bitter. I added a carrot, green onion, and kale to the chicken cube broth. Sauteed the mushroom before adding to the soup mix. Sweet potato and lettuce salad on the side. Pear cake for dessert. Made enough for another meal.

Good ideas, Spud!

Joan, I eat in small batches because large amounts of food makes me tired and sleepy.

I've always been a morning person.  It just seems natural.  

In the summer, I like to get up and out doing things before the sun makes it necessary to wear an uncomfortable hat and sunglasses.  I've had 8 skin cancers removed due to not wearing an uncomfortable hat in the past.

I also like to work outside before it gets too hot.

I also like to shop before the stores get crowded.

Spud, may I ask a personal question? Why do you get up so early; and why do you eat in small batches?

Oh! Those eyes! Just a look and my heart bonds for life! 

That is the way it was with Dominic. Our eye me at the animal shelter and we adopted him; more accurately L&L adopted him and he adopted me. When I was sick he was at my side day and night. Now he spends most of the daylight hours with me and his sleep time with L&L on his big, deep, soft, comfortable bed. 

I know Rufus is a fast learner, he has the look of knowing a lot and loving to learn more. He also has that look of gentleness that I so dearly treasure.

Pretty puppy.

Rufus looks great!

It's nice to have a doggy companion despite barfing on the carpet or drinking out of the toilet bowl. I hope Rufus isn't a barking dog. Dot just snores.

I splurged this morning and had biscuits and sausage gravy (and a pear). Since I'm grandkid watching today, I figured I need my energy!
