Monday, Monday, Can't Trust that Day!

Monday, September 15, 2014

Update from family Dr. on the x-ray from ER. It is a fracture and I must see an orthopedic Dr. tomorrow to see what he thinks should be done.

I joined the Fall challenge and was so looking forward to it because I did a challenge before and was pleased with the results. Now what do I do? Most of the exercise challenges will probably of limits to me.

Think I need comfort from a cookie! emoticon

Weekend Review--Friday, Saturday, Sunday-- Fall, Fair, Falling

Monday, September 15, 2014

Friday was a day to remember for my oldest grandchild.
It started out a cool day, but it was a pleasant one and mild.
Out for a school outing, hiking up a hill
Then she slipped and lost her footing. Goodness what a spill!
Twenty feet! Flipping and flopping, tumbling down like Jack and Jill!
And when she hit the bottom, she lay there . . . very, very, still.
Momma and twin sister, got to her just as fast as they could.
Wow! Not a bone was broken! Our God is always good!

* * * * * * *

Friday evening we went to the local grange fair and saw quite a few folks we knew. Some family. Lots of entries into the food and crafts divisions. We didn't go to the animal section, though, and it was getting too cold to sit and watch the horse pulls.

Saturday, I slipped and fell down a couple of steps on our porch. Left foot and badly bruised, but the ER Dr. didn't think anything was broken. They gave me an air brace to help me walk. It didn't help much. Putting weight on the foot was terribly painful.

Sunday, the foot was much better. The swelling had gone down some, but still couldn't get many of my shoes on. Finally found a pair, though tight, and went out to church. After I am on the foot for awhile, the ankle aches.

Weekend through, looking forward to a better week.

  Accidents happen when we least expect them.
Usually shifts our routines somewhat.
Happy to hear you are both survivors.
Healing takes time. No way of getting around it.

Thinking It Over Thursday

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The Wonder of Walking: Just going for a brisk 20-minute walk can relax muscle spasms, soothe pain, and speed healing as effectively as a pricey professional massage, reveals a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

Due to some joint problems, walking is what I do most for exercise. Uneven ground irritates an injured knee, so I do a lot inside. Leslie Sansone is good for me!

Quote of the day: "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." Thomas Edison

. . . and thinking about thinking, if I fall asleep on a yoga mat, does that count as meditating?

    yes, it counts!

I add the hours I fall asleep in my chair every night to my sleep hours.

So sleeping on the yoga mat is double time. Sleep & Meditation,

Update: The Verizon Tech Came

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

After checking a lot of things out, he discovered it was the modem. He had one in his truck and we are good to go! I did not know that all of the knew modems have wireless tech built in so I no longer need the Netgear router. This was the first time I got something for the computer that I did not have to hook up. Our dollar a month protection plan on the modem covered it and the installation.

I mentioned to him that we watch videos on the internet and he could not believe it because he said we have the slowest connection (DSL) that they offer.

I am so glad that everything was OK after the modem was changed. That is one protection plan that was worth having!

This weather seems to be confusing to April. She stays on the porch some nights and in the house some nights. What a dog!

We found a tree in our yard that is growing a green fruit that looks like pawpaw, but the leaves on the tree are different. Much smaller and not quite the same shape. Can't figure it out unless there are different varieties of pawpaw. Oh, well, guess I will keep checking.

Have a great night, All!

This Is My Second Blog Today

Monday, September 08, 2014

Was having so much trouble with the internet being slow and the modem shutting down that I had to contact Verizon. I hate to do that! Almost always takes an hour or more to get to the proper reason of "why" things are not working. Sure enough, more than an hour. But I did it by internet this time just in case the things started acting up while I was on there. It was slow, but did not shut off. Yesterday, I was trying to watch a video with DGDs and the modem 'red-lined' about four times in one hour.

Isn't that the way it is? Oh, well, anyway it didn't need to shut off. She gave the line a remote check and said it is the outside line. I thought it wouldn't be in the house because it happens all the time when we have storms (no storms inside) -- which has been almost every week for a month. I have reset the modem lots, the phone a couple of times and once shut down everything for three days. Still acts up when there is a rainstorm. They are sending a tech out tomorrow morning. At the end of the conversation, the lady thanked me for my patience and complimented me on being nice with her. Never had that happen before!

Just had to blog again to share while this was fresh in my mind.

Have a great night, All!
