But hey it isn't a cold rain and I only have to walk Allie, so will put my already wet, still drying clothes on and go in a bit. She doesn't mind. lol She gets extra lovin cos we have to dry her off. What a girl. Seems good today.
Well thankful so thankful that the company finally came through and did our roof for us. Was two guys that were done one job and come at 8:45 at night, nearly dark! But when I went out this morning, you cant see where it was fixed so that is great!! I guess will give them a thumbs up after all. Now the guy with the driveway was to come but it is pouring so give him one more chance. Feels so good to know one thing is done and off that list and we got it for the cheaper price since was just an after another job. Was only 4 shingles off when he got up there.
Been feeling a sense of urgency with this wt loss and healthy biz which hasn't been there before, Not sure why but hope it will stay, not bother me but stay. I have eaten well, did my exercises and was able to go up to 10 lb wts. with all but one, so my elbow is doing better as is my shoulder.
I got a really nice panel of material that I want to make a wall hanging with. Well 3 as it has 2 sides and a middle. Going to cut the middle and make one then do the other two. I don't have any batting right now so will wait till next pay to get batting, only cheap thin but do want something and then put a back on it. So what I like, and said to dd I am getting that one, not the colours for where I wanted it but can change walls. lol
Guess better go, have lunch and get a bit more done. Lazy day weather wise but don't feel lazy. that is good, however a nap later may be nice! lol
HUGS I don't mind a day of rain in summer...

Okay I am going to be getting a tablet so I can use it upstairs and also for when I am recuperating from my surgery when ever that is.
here is my question........... I don't care what type or brand you have... unless you had a lot of problems but
What size screen is best for you. and can also say which is best for reading if you wish LOL
I want to read books, go on my email, fb, and spark... that's about it oh pintrest. Hubby has an older one and is heavy, dad has a 6 and too small. so I was thinking 8 but some say 7. So what size do you use and what for!

Woke up to the type of weather mornings I love. Cool but not cold, and I didn't even want a sweater on. One guy was walking, "where's your jacket? " nope not yet I said. I don't know if it is my hormones or what but I enjoy that and yet can have a slight cool breeze on me in the house and need my sweater.
Anywayyyyy... Allie and I were getting ready for our walk. I could hear a slight pounding but nothing much. I thought hmm where is that. So we go 3 houses down and suddenly she STOPS looks, stares, and bolts back toward the house. Honestly, I was not able to hold the leash, thankfully early and no cars she ran all the way home and got up on the step. I got back and she crawled on my lap. She is terrified. I wrote I think before she got sick there was some men putting a roof on and she wouldn't walk on that road and still doesn't want to. Well that is what this is house down the corner is taking their shingles off. NO idea what started this as we have had her from beginning so not sure, unless before she was 8 wks old. So convinced her to get off the step, and we went down to the field. well I had to let go of the leash and she went a ways looked back and then kept going. Finally did her biz and I thought we will walk the woods, quiet, away from the noise. NOPE she pulled so bad, to go home so let go of leash and sure enough home.
Now she did eat her breakfast, thankfully as her pills are in there. and then wouldn't settle not even with me. She kept going upstairs, cry, back down, so opened the bedroom door, and hubby was awake enough that he put his hand down the side of bed, and she is laying on the floor with his hand on her back, both of them asleep.
Poor dog, If this foolish workman that is to come to repair our roof ever shows up, I will hopefully be home and can take her to dd house while he is here. only have a very few shingles blown off.
So other than that a good morning, well for me! LOL had a quicker than normal walk, thank heavens she kept waiting for me, my knee wouldn't go any faster. I was hungry so thought will have a kale salad cos we are meeting dad at the restaurant later for breakfast but 10 am is too late for me to wait when I am up at 7.
Hoping to have a good day, I want to go for another walk, without her before it gets too warm.
HUGS all and have a great day. OH the vet said her lytes were good so we can keep this med and then start to go to 3.5 pills a day and see. but will wait a while as we just lowered it.

What a pain filled day. OMG the EXTREME pain in both my feet, and ankle of R side, toes extra bad on L foot. And my R thumb. Ironically my back was only so so even though wasn't walking well with the pain and also bad pain behind my knee again. Sitting isn't helping, Epsom salts soak no difference. OOMG but this too will pass. My R ankle is so sore, a full on constant pain not like hurt more like ache/throb. Oh well.
Had a good day other than pain. Good chat with hubby and then dd and us went to stores. We had to get Allies script filled, and then to the veggie store. LOL along with other stops when dd is with us. I almost thought of w/c at wallmart my feet hurt so bad. but walked cos still getting over 11, 000 a day and wanted my steps. I am done and will be resting rest of the eve. Hubby is on Allie duty and I am stopping. may go soak again and see if it helps.
Mind in a controversy over No S and just trying to eat proper and also proper portions. I honestly don't know if I can do the right amt of the trigger foods for me. But diets don't work, I have never been one to do all the strange stuff but man nothing is working right now. Stress and pain I think aren't helping.
But am happy still, chats with hubby and some stuff resolved and also going to the trailer the last 2 wks of august so I am looking forward to that as long as hubby is okay. If not then no sense staying. I have to be back to go for my physical on the 28th so think we are going for 12 days. a tad concerned about dad alone for that long even though dd will drop in am and pm. but that's okay.
All right off to soak my feet, heat magic bag and put on my R hand and then after just read and then going to do my physio and stretches. had hubby rub my neck as it was bad today too. Finally the thunder and rain came after saying so all week, presume that is part of the pain story.
HUGS all and hope you all do well this weekend. Me I just don't know where I stand but will try hard to remember what you do today helps or hinders your tomorrow!!

I was going to wait till tomorrow to blog as Allie goes to the vet, but they won't have the results till Thurs am anyway.
Well still doing NO S, doing well on it, but not losing any wt. In fact, my pants are tighter and not sure why. We have been doing it together, and the past 2 weekends we weren't even overly indulgent. This weekend barely at all. I am still walking the dog, and have even started walking myself after supper ( take her then bring her home and go back out as she still isn't going as far as she was). I am drinking my water and doing my phsyio so really not sure. Portions are okay too. Only thing I am not eating as much veggies as before but not too much fruit so not sugar crazy as only weekend that we have sugar.
I am thinking of going back on what the naturopath had me do as I lost on it, I felt good, it didn't help my pain in the 3 months I stayed totally on it but maybe just losing some would help right now. Anyway, have to make a trip to bulk barn and veggie store tomorrow.
Haven't been to the trailer in ages, hubby has no interest, first said he wasn't keen on new owners of campground, then said didn't want all the kids around and we will go in sept. Well have to agree I do enjoy the quiet and serenity during the early and later months. We are still planning to have the trailer brought home and put in the driveway, saving money till we can afford to travel with it, I said you have hitch it is - wanting to go somewhere with it instead of leaving it sit.
Not much more new, frustrated as we have called 2 diff co to come give us quotes on driveway and roof and neither show up when they say. Argh...
We plan to take dad to the valley this week if the weather is any good. And hubby is saying he is working on fence but .... not out there. sigh again?? geesh. but it will get done, big job and could be overwhelming him.
Okay time to go watch some more of the show and get to bed. NIght all. and hopefully I figure what to do to get my wt moving again.
