Didn't Do Much today

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Two not too bad days is about my limit. I was looking forward to going to grocery store but just wasn't up to it. Pretty sad when you look forward to grocery store. Bill went to grocery store and I went to bed.Oh well Sh-t happens.
I just had a craving for vienna sausage.He has gone to store to get me some.It has been years since I ate any.Nothing healthy about them.
Hope you all have a safe night tonight and no drinking and driving.
I am looking forward to a better year.

    Hi darling friend! We don't go out for New Years either. I've never been a big fan of going out amongst a bunch of amateurs...hehe! Who wants to get smooched in a big crowd of drunken idiots and then take the chance of getting home in one piece? Let me tell you you know all about the crazies out on the road here in FL and that's when they are maybe...actually SOBER! emoticon

Hugs to you..2012 will be OUR year...it's the year of the DRAGON...so fitting for us! emoticon emoticon

    Happy New Year my friend! Well, when you think about it - lots of wonderful things start at a grocery store, so nothing sad about it. As for the sausages - to each his own! Ha!

    wow haven't heard about vienna sausages in years. We used to go horseback riding in the Arkansas hills and we would stop for lunch and the guide would always bring out his can of vienna sausages and my girlfriends and I always thought it was so weird. So I am officially saying you are weird emoticon
Glenn and I will probably be in bed by 10. Can't take this New year stuff anymore. It will still be here tomorrow when I wake up. emoticon

  Hi Eleni.........
Ken and I are staying in tonight too. New Year's Eve has NEVER been a night that I want to be out and about. We are having steak and lobster, will try to stay awake through a movie, and will set alarms to wake us up to say Happy New Year to each other. Aren't we a dynamite- couple?????
I wish you a wonderful 2012 and look forward to sharing our friendship.

Another Not Too Bad day.

Friday, December 30, 2011

I am doing too much when Bill isn't working. But my too much is really not much of anything emoticon
We still had 4 bags of canned foods in back room still on floor on bags. I put them all away.
Then I cleaned out fridge and made grocery list.
My computer went wacko and messed up my grocery list master. Had to make a new one. But got that fixed after some aggravation.
When Bill got home and I got up from my nap we did the bottom freezer of fridge.I had taken everything out of my small freezer as it has to be defrosted.Needed to get bottom freezer straighten out.Also needed to see what meat I had. So we got that done too. Now bottom freezer has stuff I use often and extra stuff in other room.
And that about does it for me. Bill has headed out to get supper. No telling what he will get. emoticon
Hope you had a good day
two of my grandkids

  Hi Eleni.........
You did a lot more today than I did too. I accomplished some paper work and paid some bills, but after two full days with Elizabeth, I was a bit tired. It is snowing hard here today, but will warm up (in the 40s) tomorrow, so won't last long.
Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE.

Swapped desks around

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Several years ago Bill bought an old desk at an auction.Used it as computer desk for long time until I decided I wanted a bigger top. So we got a bigger desk that is really a table with one compartment on side. Turns out Bill and I both have been thinking about getting rid of big one and going back to small one. I mentioned it a couple of weeks and he decided today was the day. It usually takes him forever to get started on a project. But not this time.
The computer tower is on top of Roxy's cage Which made more top room. Emptied old desk out and most of stuff went in a box to hide somewhere.Will take a couple of days to get these drawers the way I want. So I did get something done today.Here is old desk.Not very good pic because of sun but good enough and the one I will use now

Another beautiful day altho it started out a little cool. But our cool is a heat wave to most of you.
I have not lost any weight but not gaining either.
Hope you all had a good day


PS I am now using bottom desk with all the drawers

  Hi Eleni (again)..........
At the risk of sounding like Lily Tomlin, I will say, "Never mind." You are now using the desk in the top picture aren't you? And, I see that the "Old desk" has the same two pull-outs that my desk has..........they are so handy.
OK..........I think that I am done now.
Good-night.......

  Hi Eleni........
I guess I am confused too, but I think that you are now using the desk in the bottom picture???
We have an antique desk for our computer that I just LOVE. It has 2 pieces of wood about 3/4 of an inch thick and as wide as the top drawers that pull out and serve as extra room when I am doing projects on the computer and also at times serve as an arm rest. It is also very deep and has enough room for the printer, speakers, a lamp, and of course, all that goes with the computer.
Not gaining is great........... emoticon

A Better Day

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

As I am always saying.I never have a really good day but have some that are not too bad.
I even did a couple of loads of clothes. But first load is in dryer and other in machine for Bill to finish.There is nothing that needs hung up so it is all good.
Only needed one nap today so that is good.
Am fixing another experimental supper. I had left over steak from the other night and I cut it up into pieces. Then I put 2 cans of italian style diced tomatoes and a small can of tomatoe sauce and 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. Used immersion blender and mixed sauce up and then added meat and los of spices and let it simmer on low. Then made some elbow macaroni. Put it all togrther and I think it taste good when I sampled it.
Here are my Christmas cards. The first is from my spark pals.Next two are family,friends and other internet friends.

And this is why I love Florida.
These are blooming outside my window.

Bill is home and wants to try my exotic meal. LOL Results tomorrow. I am not too sure Want is the right word. emoticon

    You sound pretty chipper in this blog Eleni and I'm glad you were having a 'better' day, loved reading your blog.
Loads of beautiful cards, that says how very many think of you dear friend!
And please . . . let me know how that meal turned out, it sounds good to me!!

    Wow, look at all those cards! I am afraid I have been too lazy over the years to receive that many - if you don't send them you don't get them! So this year I made a list and sent out to family and one or two friends. Maybe I'll get some next year? ;-)

The dinner sounds good - tomatoes are so good for you. Glad you are having a better day.

Big Hugs, Cat

    Love the way you displayed your cards. Mine just go in a basket...would be nicer to see them as you go around the house! May try that next year!
I love your flowers! We don't have anything blooming now. But we had a wonderful day, high 50's and lots of sun...tomorrow it is supposed to turn cold again!
Please take care of yourself and don't worry about blogging. Just keep us posted every few days as we want to know how you are! emoticon

  Hi Eleni......
It was fun to see my card on your wall. I absolutely LOVE getting Christmas cards. I love opening them and seeing what the card looks like and reading the verse and especially seeing what each person wrote. I still have mine up and Ken can't get over the fact that I know who each card came from without looking inside. I hate taking them down from the walls.
Your dinner sounds very good. I make something very similar and both of us like it. I am so glad that you had a good day and wish you many more.

    Thanks for the lovely card and poem. I have it posted where I can look at it often. Had a rough month..lots of traveling, aches and pains, out of control eating, weight gain...but looking ahead to new possibilities. My daughter is having surgery Friday to remove 4 wisdom teeth and a slow-growing cyst that's been there for 5-10 years they said. Say a prayer for good pathology reports and speedy healing. She's been staying here with the boys and her beagle. It's actually be soothing to have company. She's talking about moving in to save up for a house...hummmmm. Love you, Sister emoticon
