Sat. eve

Saturday, June 22, 2013

A great day we had. BIl and sil came for a short visit on their wqy back to PEI. We walked the dog, I did a few pages in my art journal, I had a short nap, then laid and read, hubby had a long nap. We had supper outside and then had a bonfire. So a great day. I had a few of those sciatic butt pains and the odd pain in my knee but not a bad day overall pain wise.HOpe I sleep better than last night.
We were talking to our neighbours who said are you going to be here Canada day? well no we weren't cos we are going to be home - have to take care of dd cats and hang around to do dads socks etc. Anyway... think we will come up the night before ( sunday) and stay overnight to watch the fireworks. Apparently they are awesome. Going to ask dad if he wants to come as he had said he would come one night. If not that is fine, he will be fine without his socks one day as when we were up in May he didnt want them on all week. May be better for him to come in when it is warmer. But if he wants then great, if not perhaps Hubbys sister may want to come and stay. But think we will come up for the day and stay overnight, go home and feed dd cats.
Well going to get ready for bed, and read for while. Figure Allie will be up early again tomorrow am. Hope she remembers to sleep in when she gets back home lol OH she met her match tonight a lady walked by with a 12 wks old puppy and lol allie got tired first LOL
Night all HUGS

Foggy and damp but will burn off

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Morning sparkers Foggy and damp this early am, but know it is going to burn off and be hot well very warm today. But was damp in trailer this am, so wondering if that contributed to Aliie back to her eary wake times. Oh well, she doesn't go to me, she wakes hubby, which wakes me anyway lol

Had a good walk this am, saw some bunnies, and a tiny chipmunk. She is so funny to watch when she sees the bunnies. Watches, and sniffs the air like they do, then runs a bit then gets on her hind legs like a boxer to go after them. lol You won't catch them Allie!

So logging on my fit bit, checking my mail then the puter gets put away till this eve. At trailer we minimize time unless it is raining etc. Debating on the deck now, as it will be 300$ - money I don't want to spend right now. We may go hunting for an indoor outdoor mat to put down and use that this year, till we see what sept brings.

Okay off I go to read, do my art journal - got the cover done and stumped at the first page, but before we left I did get a 20 page ( small pages) scrapbook for a baby shower, she can fill in the pictures. So was using the creative juices just not on my book lol

We will go walking, have company this afternoon, and having a fire this eve. Going to be a good day, pain well it is in my back and R knee at a 6-8 but oh well I am still moving. Not taking dads advice which is always go back to bed, or go sit down for Christ sake you should move around when you are sore. hmmm old school thinking well he is 87! LOL

    Very cool...we LOVED our little cabin in N. Carolina. It was only about 700 sf but it had a huge 10 foot wrap around porch that we LOVED. Were out there all the time anyway. I had to really think about ANY purchase because I had to think where it would be stored...cut down my shopping BIG time...and that was a GOOD thing! emoticon

I'm SO sorry we sold it years back...I'm sure we'd probably be living there full time now if we hadn't. Oh's 20/20.

Glad you are moving around and getting so much done. Be sure and share your Art Journal. I have several...mostly for decorating inspiration to show my customers at the consignment gallery.

They are SO much fun and really get our creative juices flowing! The world just couldn't exist without art and artists...that's MY story and I'm stickin' to it! emoticon

Another sunny day Loving this weather!

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Good morning sparkers!!! I have taken allie for her walk, and we were both lucky. she met up with her doggie friend in the tennis courts, so they played off leash, and I didn't have to walk hard at the start. I will take her for a longer walk this eve.
She is not waking me up lately, but I am waking at 4-6 with pain, My body only wants to lay down so long I guess, but have been going to bed late for me.Last night I had such pain inmy R knee got up at 3 to put the cooling gell on it, then when i woke it was sore, but my back was easily at 10. So not sure what this meds doing, I do agreee with hubby and dd, that I am able to do more during the day, but hoping that he doesn't up the dose when he figures it isn't working for a 24 hr period. I would rather be like this till I take my pill in the am.
But pain aside, the weather has been great. First time since we moved here, we have flowers other than hosta in our front, thanks to dd helping me and me being willing to spend $9.00. Today is busy as I want to run to library, we want to go get allie a harness type thing instead of the halti, I want to get a bit of baking done to take - haven't done any gf in at least a week and bit and miss some. ( nt losing any wt again either). and then pack and tidy. Oh somewhere in there would like to get a hosta out and take to dd. will see. lol
So for now better get some recipe started before the others open.
OH must say......... a friend who has a dog and we meet up on occasion, saw me this am. and she said OMG I am flabbergasted. you look amazing, really great. How much wt have you lost. so we chatted a bit - she has problems with workers comp, me long term so always something to say lol and then she went on her way, and I was in the tennis courts wth the man and his dog, on her way past she again said WOW.
So nice when someone else notices! now to get this flab toned even more important now!
Okay off to get moving, first thing, food and pills. then check recipes....
HUGS cya!

    A big woo~hoo on your weight loss and your firming! It's a tough road but we just won't and CAN'T give up! I think Allie is a godsend for you. She reminds you to just 'get out there' and get ur done!

Isn't it the BEST when people notice our efforts? I LOVE that! I remember when my BFF lost SO much weight...I told her she looked just like a young school girl..and she DID!

But then she gave back into the demons of depression and ate her way into illness.

I lost her 3 Christmas' ago and I'm still missing her SO much I'll start to pick up the phone to tell her something.

We were best buds for YEARS and YEARS until the first election and then we almost lost our friendship. It was so sad. I thought I knew her through and through..but obviously I didn't on the political arena.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I just tried to stay away from that topic but she wouldn't let it rest...seemed really radical to me. emoticon I began to think she might be a closet bigot...very sad.

We did recover our friendship...but it was NEVER the same as before. Isn't it funny how you think you know someone so well...but certain situations show you a completely different side of them?

Anyhow...I miss her! emoticon

sunny sunday

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Got to the brunch, it was only okay and ds and his family weren't able to come as they would have been much later. Food was okay but nothing to write home about. After dd and I did a bit of running around and then dad wanted to go out for supper. One thing, eating like this you don't have a lot of choice so always opt for fish. Once in a blue moon there may be one other thing.
My body has been aching today, but then later this afternoon eve, both my knees felt as fi they needed to be cracked. They still feel that way and my L thigh has a spot that really hurts feels bruised but nothing there. When I go up stairs or lift my leg, it really hurts as do both knees. My mid back is hurting too so not sure what is going on. I seemed to be doing good on the darn celebrex but not sure what is up.
Had an hr nap on couch which is not comfy for me to lay on as is only a love seat and too small, but slept. Now it is 10 and think I will go to bed. Tired for some reason even though had 2 nights of good long uninteruppted sleep.
Hope you all had a great day and are ready for whatevrer this week brings.

I think instead of starting on the bathrooom, hubby should start on an ark. OMG when will it stop raining!!!!! OH well, happy that he is starting some project since the outdoor ones can't be started.
So frustrated with this med situation. My back is the sorest it has been in while, other than the off and on days, my hips, my shoulder oh man this weather isn't helping, but the fact that I have just started meds isn't either I am sure. Hope they kick in soon, since I did say till he gets me an apt of a month. I am thinking that he will get me in when my blood results and xray come back, so guess should go get it done lol Probably next week if we don't leave to go to the trailer right away. From now the weather is mostly rain again next week but that could change daily! LOL
Today, I am making my own tomato ketchup, in the crock pot now, going to grind up almonds to make 5 cups later or may ask dd to use her blendtec and offer her a drive up here to do dads housework. lol Got a few things I want to get made.
Then the creative side - well I bought a small scrapbook album and photo one, they are small which is great. Hold or comes with 10 sleeves so 20 pages, perfect size for the baby shower and is only 5x7 so not long. Now to get some ideas and get that done. Think I will give the even smaller photo album to the Big ( 4years old) Brother. So that has to be done for the 23rd. Also cos I had a 50% off coupon I bought myself an art journal it is just a mixed media 100 sheet 5.5 x8.5 sketch book but the pages are thick enough for mixed media which I have been looking at and interested in. So for $6.00 I got a treat. Hubby and dad will go to the legion this eve, hopefullly dad will pay as we are taking him to legion for fathers day brunch. I also think that soon I will make some cardboad, then cover with newspaper etc. lettters that say EAT, or DREAM etc. I have seen some easy ways to do it on pintrest.
Okay for now, since I can't make much noise, I will go and tidy up some, do my stretches and by then one will be awake, then later the other. Always just ALlie and me in the morning, which I like. I am a morning person just not 6 am if I haven't slept well. LOL
May be back later but if not, make this friday a great day despite the weather and pain. JUST THINK I CAN DO THIS, THERE ARE OTHERS WORSE OFF THAN I AM FOR SURE.
