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 ...
WOOHOO !!!!! My day yesterday was a very quiet one ... Hubby was busy all day and I had the day to myself.. which I stuck around the house ..and just "did" ... lol lol lol I sat and sewed up a bunch of my coasters, and well -- I may be playing puzzle over by mom alittle longer today; because I only have, I think, 12 left to sew up .. :) Once they are done, and wrapped up with ribbon in packs of 6, I can start on my 2nd quilt !!! WOOHOO !! LOVING IT!!!!!! I'll have 8 packs :) I think I will do a coffee and tea basket as well .. :) (come closer to November ..:) ) They have some pretty cups and dishes at the Dollar store, and I can get a couple of baskets from the second hand store; and I can get little packets of coffee and tea at the grocery .. for a couple of bucks a piece ... I LOVE when I can be creative !!!!! :)
When I saw my UNsewn pile getting smaller and smaller, I decided to stop .. so I would have something to do at mom's today .. lol lol lol ..
I got up and wandered around the house on what the next thing I would get into would be .. lol .. I came downstairs, and saw daddy's organ staring at me .. I haven't played that for soooo long .. I decided to sit down and play .. and well .. it's sounding a little tinny and my playing wasn't making it much better, but after a bit, I started getting my mojo back, but it still sounded tinny .. :( .. It's an old little organ, since daddy had it for about 10-15 years before he left, and he's been gone since 2005 .. I should get the confidence up to open up the BIG organ .. and see what that sounds like .. if it even works anymore .. I'm actually looking for a place to sell it .. it's a huge Hammond, that I got from my organ teacher/family friend across the street where I lived. I bought it before we were married, when Mrs Stein went into the nursing home .. much to hubby's dismay .. but it's been 40 years; and I remember sitting on the front porch growing up (when I was about 10-11) and listening to her .. it's old enough that it still runs on tubes .. ergo... it hasn't been played in a long time; because something with the tubes, sent my dogs into hyperspace ... must have been some kind of backnoise that I couldn't hear .. lol .. I had the original paperwork from her purchase, but I can't find it, it's not where I thought it would be ?? BUMMER !!!!! Anyway .. It's old .. I probably moved the paperwork upstairs, when I was trying to sell it .. (with no luck .. lol) .. ANYWAY ... I spent about an hour playing daddy's organ .. and nobody was around to "enjoy it" .. lol lol lol .. I laughed at myself, and just enjoyed the moment .. :)
I sat in the afternoon ... ate a light lunch .. I had 2 slices of my double fiber toast, with butter and jelly .. and then watermelon for dessert .. :)
Hey .. speaking of food .. I have a question for the masses ..
For breakfast, I had what I thought was 2 eggs and cinnamon/raisin toast .. however, one of my eggs was twinned .. would you count that as 1 egg (because it was 1 shell?) or 2 eggs (because it had double yolks.. and the yolks are where all the calories are) Inquiring minds want to know !!!!! :)
For dinner I had 2 ham rollups .. well -- the first one was 2 slices of ham, a handful of spinach; and tomato slices .. the second was was 1 slice of ham with 2 handfuls of spinach and tomato slices . YUM YUM !!! and then watermelon for dessert ..
Well-- the quiet day came to a head when from inactivity; my back is fussing again .. (not as bad as it was .. but it's still there .. :) ) so .. this morning will be an Aleve dose because I'll be helping mom all afternoon, and won't have time to baby myself ..
I told hubby this morning .. I have to find that HAPPY medium between too much sitting, and too much activity ..
I think this morning I'm going to leave and get my nails cleaned up .. and I'll be freshened up again .. besides .. it's affecting my typing.. lol lol .. I'll be all cleaned up for the puppy picnic on Saturday .. :) I don't have to be to mom's until 12:30ish .. :)
I'm bringing along a graph pad .. I did inventory of my squares I have left (I can probably do a number of quilts) and still have squares left over .. lol lol .. I may be able to do a lap quilt for my friend for her birthday yet .. lol lol .. I can plan my pattern for my next quilt since my coasters are almost done ...and will be done as of tonight . lol lol ..
So -- my day is going to be another quiet one .. just spent with mommy and her friends .. Hubby is off to the Dells ... he had a couple of free tickets to a golf course .. so he and his friend are going out to spend the days out there .. :)
I'm taking a couple of Aleve this morning because it's going to be another quiet day .. I truly don't want to restart the muscle relaxers ..
Okay --- gotta get myself some breakfast .. and get myself going here .. Have a wonderful day .. I'm going to .....
Have a great day !!!!!
