Happy Friday !!!! Wishing you the greatest of days !!!!

Friday, September 28, 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 was I guess you could say a perfect day!!!!

I had thought of something at about 2 in the morning for Kim to add to her notes that because it didn't come up; I didn't think about it the other day when I was there .. so after 8 I sent her a text explaining, and told her .. "okay-- I am now UNreachable" .. (because I told her I was looking forward to the day and didn't want to be bothered .. when I was there on Wednesday ... (and I wasn't ... lol)

I did get a text from Leonard, thanking me for coming in on Wednesday .. (he must have heard it through the grapevine, or from Lois (his wife) ) ... and he and I are going out to lunch on Monday at our fav Mexican restaurant in my town .. :) That made me happy .. :)

But yesterday ... well -- it was a day ... a wonderful day .. Hubby was gone goofing .. er ... golfing .. and I had the day to myself .. :) now what kind of trouble could I get into around here .. lol .. ???

I did get 3 weeks worth of appointments set up for physical therapy .. and while I had a good day .. I was in a blue funk all day .. I guess this stupid thing is getting to me .. I hate when I have plans and my body doesn't .. lol .. but I guess it's getting to me, and my final plan of turning toward PT felt like a feeling of defeat .. I hurt when I sit, and I hurt when I move, and I hurt when I stand, and .. well .. I just hurt and it frustrates me ..

Now that that's out .. I did have a good day ... I got my laundry caught up .. and I got to play in my playroom .. I pretty much spent my day upstairs yesterday only coming down at lunch, and when I finally had to say "I give up" and came downstairs; and sat down for about an hour before hubby came home ..

I got quite a bit done on my quilt pattern .. :) I'm working in panels this time .. :) and eventually will connect the panels .. :)

I did come down for some lunch ..unfortunately I didn't have any spaghetti sauce, so it turned into a "mad scientist" lunch ..

I spiralized my zucchini that I had bought the day before; and put it in the pan; and I had onion left in the refridgerator from a previous meal that was spiralized; and I chopped up the last of my mushmush's from the day before.. and since they were all soft vegetables, they could be thrown into the pan together, and get happy together .. :) As they saute'ed, I looked for the spaghetti sauce that I never found.. so I had to start thinking .. and found some cream of mushroom soup .. and thought .. oh that sounds like it would be good .. and then turned and saw cream of chicken soup ..and thought OOOOO THAT WOULD BE YUMMY!!!!! and you know what ?? I was right !!! This recipe was a super easy one, but super duper yummy !!!!

I got my kitchen cleaned up and back upstairs to my playroom, and laundry ..

and that was pretty much my day, until I came downstairs; and watched TV until hubby came home. I ended up going back up to bed at around 9 .. hubby was out cold, "watching" football .. lol ..

Hubby is off with mommy this morning, and I have some quiet time .. Not sure when he will be here so I'll know what we're up to when he does get here .. :)

Tomorrow is our dinner at Fox and Hounds .. to celebrate our 40th anniversary (from May .. hubby isn't the quickest with our best man and maid of honor and their spouses .. :) so I'm looking forward to that !!!!

My PT sessions don't start until 10/8, then pretty much take up the rest of the month, but I'm a good study .. I plan on studying as much as possible; and asking as many questions as possible to learn the "PROPER" way to strengthen my core muscles .. :) The only conflict comes on the 25th when I have mom's card party in the afternoon ..

Uly found a new friend again .. My scarecrow; that mom (and daddy) made almost 25 years ago.. :) lol ..

Okay -- that's my story for today .... I'm happy to say that my eating has been improving day by day, and hubby is trying to help for now .. lol lol ..

Hope everyone has a great day !!! I'm going to .. no matter what I get into I am going to have a fun day ..

I'm thinking of talking hubby into a mall walk .. it's about time I pick up my big girl panties and get on with life again ..

Have a great day !!!

    The zucchini dish sounds great. PT can be helpful.

    I’m thinking I need to talk to my GP about PT. This back/hip thing has gone on waaay tooo long! But I need to check with my insurance company to be sure some of it would be covered. I have been doing back/core stretching, massage & chiropractor to no avail. Still trying to keep a positive attitude thru this. I know things will turn around.

    That’s nice that Leonard thanked you for your help. Kudos to him. And enjoy your lunch on Monday.

    Sorry about the blue funk, but for sure pain does that to you. Good for you for getting physical therapy organized. That will help a lot. It’s not meant for us to be able to handle everything. We are surrounded by many people, for that very reason . . . we can’t handle everything ourselves!

    Good luck on quilt #2! Nice!!!

    Your concoction sounds wonderful!!!!

    Have a wonderful time tomorrow @ Fox & Hounds. Awesome.

    Awwwwwwww, Uly looks so content w/Mr. Scarecrow! Nice.

    I normally go to a chiro for my back issues. I hope PT works. One this I am told is we women fail to listen to our bodies which makes things worst! Sally listen to your body and R&R isn't a bad thing~our body is telling us we need to Relax!

    Mad scientist in the kitchen again!

    Cute scarecrow!
