I LOVE a good foot massage. Too bad I'm the massage therapist. Don't get me wrong, my BF gives a good foot massage--but he's not here. He lives in his own home. So, he's not around at the end of a looooong day to tenderly love on my tootsies. That just leaves me. And as much as I try to give myself a foot massage, it's just not the same.
I am going to promise my feet a nice foot soak in my long forgotten foot bath that massages while you soak. Someone got it for me as a gift a long time ago and it just sits, put away somewhere under my bed. I am also going to make some progress on the socks I began knitting a while ago. I will finish at least one of them by the end of this month!
I will also take off the nail polish that's been on far too long and paint up my toes all nice and purtty. My feet are going to be show stoppers by the end of this week.
They deserve it. They do a lot for me. They really get me where I need to go. They've endured tumors being removed, neuromas causing pain, plantar fascitis, sand that is far too cold to play volleyball upon, too tight or too big shoes, socks with too much texture, long miles of walking, long days of standing, the occasional fungus (eew), and even being sun burned. This week--they are the spot light. I love them; now I just need to prove it!!!

I told myself that I was absolved from tracking my food from the party. Good. But man, I really feel like I went overboard. Everything was super yummy. I did well, until, the alcohol. It was also really yummy. I know I stopped myself, after realizing that I was absently shoving bread and cheese into my face, but not fast enough. Most of the time I stayed away from the food and I really only had about 2 1/2 beers (German wheat beers, and I did share). Oh yeah- I got over 13,000 steps in for the day and I walked 5 miles in the morning.
It was one day! I've done better today, except for the 2 hot apple fritters at the pumpkin/apple farm, okay and maybe I didn't need to have french fries at lunch. My BF and DD only eat at crappy restaurants. I hate when I have so few choices and I know that none of them are low sodium or very filling. Whatever. I'm going to eat some lovely veggies tonight and be totally back on track tomorrow. We did go for a nice long walk outside today.
Now, I'm gonna relax and watch some tv. Seriously, I hope there is something good on. Or, maybe I'll just read. Hot tea and a good book. Now that's Yummy!

I started this party several years ago because I love fall and I love to cook. The premise is that everyone brings a soup, bread/dip, dessert, or beverage that says "fall" to them to share. The party has grown so much that it has been moved from my tiny condo to my friends house. She has a fabulous (newly re-done) kitchen and a two story deck (with fire pit) for us to really celebrate the season. I am making curried spit pea soup (from You on a Diet); Gluwine (spiced warm wine), and Reuben Dip to share. I can't wait to enjoy the flavors and chill of fall with everyone tonight. (And, I have absolved myself from tracking my food for today, so I can party guilt free. I learned my lesson from last weeks B-day celebration not to overdo, but I am going to try several things). Yumm-O
Have a Happy, Fun, Festive, Fall-like Weekend!

My tush is my body part that I've been lovin' this week. And this morning I keep having all kinds of songs that mention the rear end running through my head. I may have to create a Playlist for my ipod...
Baby Got Back
Shake You Rump
23 positions In A One Night Stand
Shake your Booty
Do the rump
Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in Bed
Okay, I cheated and got a list off of the internet. I will have to check some of these out though. It was quite amusing to find that such a list exists.
Now--Go Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture!!!

I have to laugh to keep from crying. Muscles I didn't even know I owned have shown up today! I am so sore from "the ball" (as I will now refer to it). Did you know that you have muscles at the bottom tips of your scapula (shoulder wing bone) that run down (attach) along your ribs? It hurts to move my arms at the shoulder joint. I will not let "the ball" win! I will conquer! I laugh in the face of "the ball"!!!
Humor. It's so good to have. Even if it is warped.
