Happy Saturday .. got alot done yesterday and I'm happy for me .. today re-begins out and about!

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday was a quiet day

I got my laundry caught up, and my material washed for my quilt I want to try and make for the puppy club, now it just has to be ironed, and sewn, but I don't have an idea in my head yet .. so I think we'll start with squares and then work from there ... Once I have the squares, I can see what size this thing will be .. either a lap quilt or couch quilt .. but I wanted to make sure the material was washed, so because these are dog people, I didn't want them washing it and it getting all funny from shrinkage ..

I started cleaning up my room as well, and the walk area is thicker .. WOOHOO !!!!! Still can't get to my windows, but we're working on it .. :) I have fewer "piles" in there.. lol lol ..

I opened up the house for some fresh air, and that felt good, but it got sticky in the afternoon .. By the time I went to bed, I closed up the house again, and the AC came back on, but it felt good to have the fresh air for a day .. Thankfully .. because starting today the temps are supposed to be in the mid 80's ..

I set up another hummer feeder yesterday .. because I have (at least) 2, and even though there are multiple holes in the feeder, they always fight .. so now they have each their own feeder .. and as of yesterday they accepted both of the feeders .. so I was happy .. and by last night they realized that there were 2 feeders out there, and behaved themselves .. lol lol ..

So I stayed home yesterday nursing a very very sore ankle.. I sat with ice packs, and finally last night at the end of the day I soaked my feet in a cool soak .. and that felt great !!! but didn't unswell my ankle ... Thankfully today it feels better .. but I still know it's there .. *sigh*

I used to ask my doctor how I can get it so it doesn't swell up, and they (both Dr B's) said that because I have a sitting job, is the reason behind the swelling ..... Well -- since I've been off, I haven't been doing much sitting, and the sitting that I have done, has been with my feet up .. When I'm doing my cards, I'm not sitting for any length of time .. getting up and getting things that I need .. so there isn't much sitting, and the swelling is still there .. The only other option that "I" can think of is a feedback from the plantar faciatis .. I've been starting my exercises and stretches for that as well .. The 3rd option is "lose weight" ..hmmmm but I feel if this doesn't get better by September, I'm going back to the doctor for her help .. (and will cry if she says the above suggestions) ... lol ..

Sooo It was a quieter day .. and I started getting my room cleaned up .. :)

My eating was okay .. but not textbook .. :)

Breakfast: apple with peanut butter

Lunch: Hubby's creation .. YUMMY .. 4 meatball rollups and chips (1 meatball rolled up in croussant rolls)

Dinner: Onion rings
ALOT of watermelon ..

Snack: Jelly bellys

Step o meter not warn
Stayed home all day ... babying my ankle

Today is Saturday .. (I'm doing that for my sake, because my brain was never on the right day this last week) .. and we're going to downtown casino and play some free money... but that's pretty much all we have planned; however, if he comes up with anything else I'll be happy to join in .. I had my "day of rest" yesterday, and I will have real shoes on, so my feet should feel okay .. but not pushing myself with walking today .. (yes .. it hurt that bad yesterday) .. but I will enjoy myself ... :)

So -- not much to blabble about this morning, but it's another beautiful day and I'm looking forward to making it the best I can !!! :)

Hope you have a great day as well .. :)

    Good luck w/your quilt!

    Hummers are a lot like kids! Don’t like sharing!
