Happy Thursday ... Sally day today .. hubby's gone golfing, and I hear a quilt calling my name !!!

Thursday, September 27, 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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday morning I paid back my last "pre-retirement" debt .. I told my internet/website/email guys that I would buy them a round of coffee in thank you for all of their help .. We sat and talked for a bit, but I saw them start to figit; so that was my cue to exit stage left ..but we talked for maybe 1/2 hour and it was a fun visit !!! I love those guys !!!! and now my debt is paid !!!! lol

I stopped at the Piggy on the way home, and got myself some salad bar veggies .. I have salad greens at home .. and just needed the veggies to top them .. :) I also picked up some salad "toppings" .. and some mushmushes (they didn't have that in their salad bar .. *HUH ??*) so I picked up a package of those, and they had some hearty zucchini's as well .. I picked up one of those, I picked up some apples, and some nanners ..

I was hungry by the time I got home; because I had a bunch o coffee in my belly and no food (naughty .. didn't eat bfast) .. and my blood sugar was flipping out megaly .. This was dangerous to go to the grocery store when I was hungry .. but I wasn't hungry... ergo ... not eating breakfast .. lol ..

Anywho .. I went to the grocery and picked up those few things ... and came home to make myself up a salad .. Well -- my spinach looked wilted, so that was tossed, but we had bags of salad mix in the refridge .. and then with my toppings, and I warmed up a pork chop; and sliced that up and put it on top (like those fancy restaurant salads and my honey mustard dressing YUMYUM !!!! OH MY GOODNESS that salad was delicious !!!!!!

But then I sat .. and sat some more .. Hubby asked me if I wanted to go to the mall for a walk, and I told him no .. I think I was doing a bit of a pity party .. I was hurting, and I was afraid of pushing it harder .. so he went off to the mall for a walk .. and I felt like a failure .. as I sat .. Yes .. even Silly Sally goes into a frump occasionally .. lol .. He's good with me.. and if I tire out; he tries to get me to sit down, and "he'll take another lap", but "never say die" me doesn't want to feel like a cop out; so I tell him, no .. I'll walk another lap .. and then I'm sorry I did once my muscles start to relax again .. So -- No .. I was in a frump yesterday afternoon, not knowing which way I was going to go .. and he left for his walk at the mall ..

After he left, ... guess what. . yup --- Bearings texted me .. one of the computers was not behaving again, and "Jimmy" asked her to text me .. Linda is on vacation .. DARN . she threw in the ace in the hole .. DOH !!!! So I told her I would come in, and take a looksee .. she said the I would come in and show her what the steps are to fix it .. :) I agreed ..

It took me longer to get ready than it did to drive in .. but I sat her down at Linda's computer and told her what to do .. to show her "normal" ... and I told her that as soon as we walk next door, that the computer's going to work perfectly .. and we laughed .. I had this thing with the computers there .. Linda could be struggling with them, and as soon as I would walk up .. it would work .. whether it was a procedure or a malfunction ..

We walked next door, now that I had showed her what result she was looking for, and she sat down at JT's computer .. and typed in the command .. and well -- it came up as "unreachable" ...a few times, and then came to connected .. and we just laughed .. I told her the process of elimination technique, and that was what computer repair (for me) has always been ..

So --- it was a good afternoon .. we talked about other things, and I told her that I was good about today .... and that was going to be what we do .. however, when I say that I'm busy ... it is not to be pushed .. and she seemed to understand .. :)

I got a reply back from my email to my doctor from yesterday morning. She recommends physical therapy to teach me exercises to start strengthening my core muscles, without irritating them further .. so I'm calling this morning to get that started .. I appreciate "steps", and I sat and talked with hubby this morning about what she had recommended ... so I'll call this morning, and start getting that set up .. I'm happy about being helped into a direction .. :)

On the way home yesterday I stopped at the Dollar Tree store, and picked up some coffee/tea cups, and sent an email to my friend from puppy club that I'm going in with making up a couple of baskets .. (we were going to make one, but I came to an idea, that I threw past her, that we could make separate .. and well .. get 2 baskets ..:) one coffee, and one tea .. :) )

Today I TOLD work that I was not be disturbed, and hubby is gone golfing; and I'm playing quilt and laundry today !!!! Tonight is the last night of the music in the park, and hope to stop by there .. as I promised Julie that we would be there .. but hubby's friends called for golf and he's not sure he would make it .. I would get a little walking in during the music; as you can hear it all over the park ..

Okay --- I'm going to go make some phone calls, in regarding physical therapy, and getting myself going here .. I hear a load of laundry calling me, and my sewing machine calling my name.. and my belly wanting some breakfast .. :) I have a plan for lunch, and well -- I'm kinda excited about it, but so I don't go nuts at lunch (even though it'll be a healthy one) I better get myself at least a light breakfast .. :)

Talk later ... and have a wonderful day !!!!!!
