What a day it was yesterday. I was exhausted and my shoulders ached from all the computer work, but it was certainly worth the effort. I had purchased the Silesia Old Ivory German porcelain for $45. at auction and by the end of the day had sold $274. worth. Still, I have nother $277. worth listed on Ebay for sale. Here's a sample of some of the pieces I sold.
Needless to say, having had a good Keto breakfast, I wasn't hungry all day long.
Today we delivered it all to the buyer then went for lunch at the Chickadee Restaurant, a local favorite dining spot in Lewiston, ME. Even though this was my first meal of the day, other than my numerous cups of piping hot black coffee (must be hot, hot, hot), I was set on lunch since it was already 11 a.m.
I perused the menu looking for something to keep with my Ketogenic way of eating and this is what I got.
Broiled haddock with green beans and cole slaw.
Something was missing, but after two pats of real butter on top of those green beans (tasted like they were from a can), I was all set to dig in. Very satisfying though. I did think the cole slaw was a bit sweet and squeezed the dressing off before eating it.
After lunch Mike and I headed to Furniture Superstore to find us some new reclining chairs to replace the Laz-E-Boy reclining love seat we bought two years ago that has been a big disappointment. Nothing at all like the Laz-E-Boy reclining sofa we had for 15 years that we tossed out when we got the loveseat. After having the loveseat for a few days we realized our old couch was more comfortable and certainly of better quality. So much for buying because of the brand name. Never again.
We found two really comfy chairs with 18" seats so our feet can touch the floor (big problem with most furniture is we end up looking like toddlers in an adult chair). Also have electric controls because the handles and push knobs are too difficult with arthritic joints. Moving up to electricals!
Have to wait 5 - 7 weeks for deliver as they are being built in Indiana (yes, Made in the USA).
On the way home we stopped by a roadside flea market in Sabattus, ME.
Being early in the season, it was only about half filled with vendors but still fun to look for bargains.
I found this wonderful antique lap or travel desk with nice inlay (that is all there) for $25. What a surprise. Usually pieces of the ilay have fallen out, but not on this one. And, it has it's key, can you say "bonus."
Well, the sides are in great shape but the top needs some refurbishing and one of those interior hinges is broken. Nothing a bit of work won't fix and this writing desk will be a treasure. This will be on Ebay real soon.
Well, even after all this activity I was still going strong, more stamina than I've had in a very long time thanks to the Keto way of eating. No more sluggishness from carbohydrates and no more hunger pains at the most inappropriate of times. Unfortunately, hubby was fading fast so we headed home. Must be that plate full of french fries he had just eaten.
Thanks for visiting with me today. I hope your weekend was restful or full of excitement, whatever "you" needed it to be. Have a great week. See you soon.
