wow it's hot

Monday, June 25, 2012

If you have been watching the world news you know that Colorado is having a lot of fires, seems our beautiful state is burning up....temps have been over 100 or near 100 for at least a week or 106, fires are burning about 50 miles from us, and more further away....this morning when I went out to get leah some water all I could smell was smoke, and the blue skies are hazy, and OMG where did the mountains go....scary times are here.
I had a lot of errands to do today, so I got an early start....wanted to get back home before it got 100.

So still packing but at least it's cool in the house, I have the garage sale stuff done and ready for Friday, friends are coming by during the week for first, it has been working out fine. Lots of work and in this heat not much fun .

I got my adds in the papers and sign to stick up ....hope to never have another garage sale again....Lot

I am not a person who drinks my calories, nor do I like milk shakes or smoothies, but had a coupon for a protein shake and darn it it's not pretty good.
I bought it at Wal-mart, they are not cheap but here are the stats:

120 calories for the chocolate frosty
1.5 fat
15 cholesterol
170 mg sodium
290 potassium
6 carbs
3g fiber
1 g sugar
23g protein..
the brand name is PURE PROTEIN, there are 3 flavors, I did try the vanilla and not as good as the frosty chocolate, it's best ice cold, it's more like chocolate milk, so not real thick....and no real after taste at least to me..the back says no added sugar or aspartame....any way it sure is filling and keeps me from craving ice cream or other sweets....if you try it let me know what you think...

break time is over...back to packing....

stay cool

    I have seen the fires on the news and it is so sad. I am going to try those protein shakes. Protein is one area that I have trouble getting enough of as a rule. emoticon

    Praying that the fires will get under control soon! Hope you have a very successful garage sale. And the protein shake sounds good! God bless!

    It has been hot, Kitt -- Denver hit 105 yesterday. We have a lot of haze from the fires to the north and to the south, and sometimes I can smell the smoke as well. Looks like we won't be getting rain anytime soon, either.

    Stay cool while you're working, and good luck with the garage sale. Sounds like things are moving along for you! That shake sounds good, too (chocolate would be my fav as well).

    I got up at 2am so I can do chores and siesta away the afternoon.

    You're right - the fires are scarey. It's been strange to look out my kitchen window and not see the mountains for the haze. When we drove into town yest it was amazing to see the plumes of smoke. Funny, but we're not able to smell it. The humane society was looking for help with evacuated animals.

    I'm with you! I'm in East Denver by the airport and it's been horrible! Every time the wind changes we either get smoke from Ft. Collins or (now) from the Springs. I hope that they can get things under control. It sounds like the Springs it 75% contained for now! Once it gets a little better maybe outside workouts can resume! In the beginning when we would go outside and smell a campfire it would make me want to get marshmallows not I'm over it and I feel bad for all of the homes lost!

    Take care and be safe!

    When my daughter flew back from Ohio and went over Colorado, she could see the heavy smoke from the air. /that indeed is scary. We have them also in Arizona.
    I will have to try that Pure Protein. I have a hard time getting enough protein in a lot of times so that will help. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Kitt, I've been seeing the reports every day about the wire fires there in Colorado. I pray that they stay far from where you're at. Take care and be safe!

    Yes it is hot been trying to stay in as much as possible. In Pueblo West so plenty of distance from the fires but still much to close and in such a scary place.
