Early this am, it wasn't too cold, but even though the sun has come out, it has gotten colder, that darn wind! LOL But no snow!!!! Haven't walked as much today, my knee is sore, have my big brace on, but still have almost 6,000 steps now at noon.
Hubby got the wall area cut out, and part of the elec. done, then can't find the box, he was sure we had one left. So this afternoon out to get the elec box, and maybe a new microwave for dad that is smaller and will fit his table he has for it.
Dad is wearing his new pants today, must go see how long they are, after arguing he had long legs, I get a 30 and they could go up about a half inch or so he says. GEEESH that man can NEVER EVER be wrong. Oh well maybe with his shoes he won't need them hemmed. lol
Still frustrated about the mess , nothing seems to change up here still a mess. I got my one litchen counter totally cleared off and hubby stood there and said holy..... I can't believe it! LOL But the rest is a mess. Laundry room and bathroom still tidy LOL
Have eaten healthy all day so far. Noon meal done so should be good till supper as we will be out. Rarely do we get anything when just out shopping, OMG we aren't "normal" Cdns we don't have a Tims cup attached to us LOL
Okay off I go to get a bit done before we go. Hope we can leave earlier than normal, hubby has to watch whatever show after lunch, he is a tv aholic, but there are worse things he could be doing or addicted to!
HUGS cya later

Evening sparkers, it is bed time for me, - can really tell that it is a dry cold. Yes my knee is still bothering me, but we go out for a lot of med. walks, a few around the blocks. We started learning come and a bit better manners on leash. I need more control of her, as she is getting strong nearly 25 lbs at the vet today and also cos it will soon be slippery out.
So did good on the exercise front but not great on the eating, that will get rectified tomorrow, as I had belly aches and bathroom visits. I really think it could be sugar, hubby thinks eggs. Id on't know I wish I knew my body better. Am amazed at some people that can read their bodies so well.
Got my exrays done and over with, now wait till Dec 4th to see what dr O says. Hoping not yet, and I can work on my strengthening exercises which I did do before bed last night and will do when I am finished this.
Allie had her rabies shot and did fine lol Next vet visit should be for spay. Poor baby gets to wear an elizabethan collar, sure she will be impressed, betting she chews it somehow. One of lisas ( dd ) dog did that and got it off. Allie is keeping my toes warm right now.
Okay buddies, I have to do those exercises, so going to bed now, as that takes a few mins then getting ready, Want to read and it is all ready 1/4 to 11. NIGHT and sleep well. HUGS

LOL Captain Piccard - "Make it so" Guess that is what we all need to do, Make it so.- whatever our IT is for the day. For me It will be eating healthy again today, be day 3. Feeling good and ready to tackle today. Day 54 of walking streak
I am going to go to the hospital this afternoon and get my exrays done. I go to the spec soon enough that they weill be current ones. Not sure we may go get groceries today, or at least the specials as we have $70 to use in gift cards, we got them when we transferred our prescriptions from Walmart back to superstore, We only went to Walmart cos Zellers closed, we wait way way longer there than superstore and they do it much less complicated. So till Jan 3 you get 10 dollars for every script you move over. YES money in our pocket.
Hubby may do the other door to dads bedroom, or I would rather he get the elec. done so that we can set up his living area. But will see as long as something more gets done, takes way longer now, as dad is down there talking the entire time, watching, suggesting, etc. says well I will get out of the way, but once in while goes and reads. lol
First order of the day as soon as hubby gets up- I am going back up and lay on the bed and do the knee exercises. Can't do them when I wake cos he is still asleep and Allie wants out NOW lol she has been super busy again this am. She has to learn that not everyone has all that energy between 7-9 am LOL not sure what will happen when it snows. will be cute to watch but I have to find new winter boots, and probably trax to put on them so I wont slip.
Well going to go get some breakfast and my cup of green tea. Hope you all have a great day! I am going to enjoy the sun despite the cold and wind. It isnt damp which is what makes it better for me.
HUGS all and have a super day sparkers!

Well this way I will always know how long we have had Allie, day 53. Must get hubby to take some new pics of her. She is learning well and being good. Still a ways to go to learn not to jump up but doing better on other fronts.
Today the weather took a huge turn for the winter. brrrrrrrrrrrrrr need mittens and hat to walk with her. The wind would take you away so strong it is. We have gone for 3 good walks and 2 around the block ones. Next one I have my hat, I went upstairs and found the tote they were in and got us each a hat, and gloves and a scarf for me.
So we went for a drive to see if we could find my friends new house, but found the street just not the house. Thats okay was being nosy lol In a bit we are going to drop some stuff off at lisas and go get dad water. he has his cooler ready now and also has been planning where to put pictures. lol still livign in box land and wanting his pictures. He has the ones I gave him for his birthday up on a table that he can see.
Doing well eating again. Reading "It starts with food" for the 2nd time. Interesting read and think i will do that again. Today is day 2 of no wheat, and no sugar other than 2 serv of fruit. Going to make kale chips in a bit, after I find out when we are leaving so I can have oven on, turn them etc
Hoep you all are having a great day, I am loving the sun, but not the wind. The cold isn't bothering my joints too bad, my top of my foot the most. Have slept better the past 2 nights since I took the pillow out from between my knees and used a tensor bandage with a heavy washcloth against my inner knee as a cushion then wrap the badage and have that. Then I dont wake every time I move to adjust the pillow. Was only away 6 times the night before last and 8 this time, compeared to anywhere from 14-20. So feel a fair bit better in am. Will see if I crash at 2. lol But then not eaing junk so that helps.
Okay off to do the kale chips or get hubby ready to go.
HUGS have a great day and cya in the am or evening.

dads 87th birthday! Have to say for the medical issues dad has, he is in pretty good shape. I am glad he had a good day, He enjoyed his pictures I gave him, his caregiver gave him some baking, and we took him out for lunch with dd and ds. later took him and dd to legion before going we bought one of the costco cakes to share. Everyone sang happy birthday to him, and I have no cake to keep here, there was a good turn out and what was left, I shared with dd for her hubby, ds for them, and dd friend ( the one we went to the wedding for) So no cake here, told dad i would wrap up some of his brownies and freeze them in his freezer.
So today was a good day, Allie was in her kennel too long for my liking but since we got the big one from sister in law she has room to stand, and stretch and doesnt mind as much. She was some excited puppy this eve, as dd friend brought her 3 year and 9 year old with her and hubby, Allie has yet to meet Thomas or Eva so that was her introduction to kids. Lily would say get away puppy and laugh but if she got close she would yell BOOOO and make a real mean face. say to my dd Lisa thats my mean face, puppy will be scared lol
Guess I will go take my brace off and put the tensor on as the brace is bothering me, go check dad, and then have a cup tea, walk allie and get ready for bed.
Hope you all had a great day and a good weeekend coming!
