Meanwhile, I have done a quick sketch of a farm at the bottom of a hill that I saw in Wisconsin. What caught my eye was the checkered silo. Here is my rendition:
Last evening my son came out for a visit bringing his two little girls and his niece, Miss 8. The two older girls had a great time doing art at the kitchen table while the rest of us (including Miss 5 months) enjoyed the Tiger game. This next weekend we have Miss 8 and her little sister, Miss 3 for the whole weekend with Miss 7 and Miss 5 months for Saturday afternoon into the late evening. It should make for a very busy weekend.
I am on the second binge day of the HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet and will begin the VLC (very low calorie) part of the diet tomorrow. I will be following the VLC phase for 21 days and will keep you posted as to my progress. So far, I am surprised by how difficult it is for me to binge. I am trying to eat lots of fats as prescribed.
I stopped at Meijers yesterday and purchased some beef steak and some very lean hamburger and measured it into 3.5 ounce portions in preparation. I also bought tomatoes, cucumbers and mixed salad greens for the vegetable portions, along with oranges and apples for the fruit portion. I bought Melba toast and some garlic Melba snacks for the "bread" portion. I am planning to drink lots of water and follow the diet strictly.
I am advised to keep busy while on the VLC portion of the diet, so I envision making some books and doing more watercolor playing.
