Not too much going on today. I did get some pics of 2 blue jays together. Two days in a row I got pictures of them. You can see in pics that one of them is not happy. Also have a cardinal. And a pretty butterfly.One Butterfly looks like it laid eggs on branch. It looks like eggs to me.
My piano turner came today and tuned the piano that I never play.once again he told me what a nice tone it has. I was thinking about selling it but changed my mind. I do have an old violin I may sell. He told me to get in touch with a Luthier which is someone who makes and repairs violin.If nothing else I learned what a Luthier was.
Bill and I have been going over how we want to design the space where pool is now located. Looking for something that will please us both.
I taped the new Rosanne show. It is wild but i like it. It is full of bleeps. She has a young hippie living on her land. She keeps getting mad and has a strange boyfriend. It is hard to explain.It is just wild.She is seeing a woman who I think is a little like a witch doctor.
Right now the son is trying to get the hippie to piss her off to prove she still has her temper.
What can I say.I like weird shows.
Ok Here are the pics.
have a good night.
PS The chopper did not do what I was wanting. I want a small chop not a fine chop. I will have to practice with it.
It has been a very busy afternoon. Ran a lot of errands and got a lot done. Stopped at library and Bill went in and bought me 6 books for $8. I told him to just get the large print. He did a good job. Then we stopped at Joann's Fabrics and he went in and got some small baggies for my meds and some large safety pins. Then he look at home depot at garden canopy's. Then to Walmart and this time I went in. I found a veggie chopper that is easy to use. Bill got me one a few weeks ago but it was too hard to work it. Then we checked out the garden stuff, We found a metal and cloth gazebo at a good price. The kind I really want starts at $3000 and you have to get permits and is a big hazzle. We can get this thing and Bill can build a deck to put it on. We will look around some more as this one is rectangle and I think I would like a hexagon. We can get this type for $300 to $700 and need no permits. We did find the perfect chairs and small table and we went ahead and bout it. Good sturdier chairs that are nice and wide for my big hinnie.
Bill's friend is coming next weekend to take pool down and the following week he will get the deck.
Ok here is pic of chairs and my new chopper.
Then Bill working on Feel Good Corner. Before and during and after,
He did a good job and it looks so much better now.
Ok I need to pick up the kitchen.
Day started out good. It looked cloudy and thought we might get some more needed rain.But sun came out bright and hot.
I am not doing so great on losing weight. I seem to have stopped the gaining but I need to get to losing. It sometimes seem like I am never going to lose the weight. The only thing stopping me is me.I know that but knowing and doing something about it is the trick. I never give up but just seem to fall on my face or food too much. I have tons of inspiration from so many of you that have and are doing it. I have a husband that is willing to do anything and eat anything if it will help me. I donít work so I donít have those temptations. I am fortunate that I have the means to buy plenty of healthy food and I do. But calories are calories. And so on and so on. Even tho I want to say the heck with it I know that wonít help so I will continue to keep trying to get my crap together.I know it can be done.I just have to do it myself.
In the blog I lost I talked about getting rid of my pool. It breaks my heart to do it but I havenít been able to go into it. But it isnít fair to Bill and as he already has so much to do because I can do very little. It is just another thing I have to give up. It will be a sad day when it comes down but it is right thing to do. It makes me sad to even think about it. It helps a little to know I will be able to spread out the butterfly garden. We might put a gazebo out there. I just hate having to do it.
On a brighter note. Bill brought home a big bag of potting soil for the feel good corner. He will get all the plants back in tomorrow and it will look good again. My one statue need painted and he is going to do that too soon. The white ones need it too but it doesnít show unless you get close to them.
Got a couple of neat pics of blue jays.This guy is a young fella I think. But it is hard to get two together and I did get these two.
Ok I was going to save this and post it later in case something exciting happened. But I donít think that will happen.If it does I will tell you about it tomorrow.
I can't believe it happened again. I wrote a long one and then I copied just in case. Did a spell check and it locked up.Closed out the spell check and it closed everything. Tried to paste and it wasn't there.
So I will rewrite most of it tomorrow.
I am much better and got a few things done that I have been wanting to do.
Bill hurt his leg last night while bowling so I tried to do a couple of things he does so he can rest when he gets home.
Here are some odds and ends pics. First one is my great granddaughter Abigail.Her mother sent it to me yesterday. I just liked the colors on black bird.
Ok need to check my supper in the oven.I also have steamed fresh corn.I just got a kernel cutter so I want to try it out. If I lose this blog this computer just might end up in the yard.
It has been one of those days. But I got a very sweet text from my grand daughter Felicia. hard to stay in a bad mood when your GD tells you how much she loves you and that you are the best grandmother ever.
I haven't done anything today but sleep and play games on Computer.
Tomorrow is a new day. Time for me to check TV guide and set up dvds.
Hope you had a good day
