Monday Monday

Good Afternoon One and All: Brominator, I am not a slacker. lol Had a busy day today as I went and got gas in the cruiser, went to the Dry Cleaners and dropped Don's tuxedo shirts off, went to Home Depot to return the sanding pads for the orbital sander and get the right ones, we have decided to play Santa Claus when we go on the cruise, so I went to Beall's and bought 20 little gifts (both ladies and men's) and then because I am sick of TURKEY so I went grocery shopping for anything but turkey. Now I am home and having a glass of blackberry wine and watching cash cab. Will work some on the bamboo stuff. Love to all

Finally it is the real Sunday

Good Morning to anyone who cares to read my stuff: It is finally really Sunday. Holidays that come on Thursday or Friday always seem to be Sunday or in this case multiple Sundays. Kind of a quiet day. The Giants cannot lose another game today, must wait till next week lol Hope everyone has recuperated from Thanksgiving Dinner. It is getting a little warmer today. My body might start to move again. lmao Okay enough Love to all Stay safe and warm.

Thanksgiving Thoughts

It is after noon on Thanksgiving Day and the Turkey is nestled in the oven and the Sweet potato casserole is in the frig and now it is time to take time for a moment of comtemplation on what there is to be thankful for. For each of you who read this, it is different. Some will be happy for good health, others will be thankful for wealth, while others are thankful for everything but the important thing is to be thankful for something. Each one of us should search our minds for things that have helped make us who we are today. I, myself am thankful for all the good things and people who have come into my life. Thanks again to all who have made me who I am today. Again I want you all to stay safe and warm and turn adversity into opportunity. Love to all. (Don't eat too much) lol
Happy Thanksgiving to all: I am doing a quick blog now and will do another one around noon when all is cooking here. Hope everyone, everywhere is happy, healthy and doing what makes them happy. I am going to get my bird in the oven and watch the parade. Love to all

Thanksgiving Eve

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all: It is a gray and cloudy day here today and it rained a little but I really don't mind it. It is supposed to cool off tonight but that is okay too. I am having a limited menu today as I always make too much stuff. I am making all the things I like best. We are still working on our Bamboo project. Life is good. Okay enough for now as I have some things to do. Love to all and stay safe and warm and may all your problems be little ones. PS We are going to see New Moon this afternoon I hope, I say I hope as it is pretty popular and our kids are off school this week. At least there will be 4 people. lmao

Thanksgiving Week Tuesday

Good Tuesday Morning: We are going to walk on the dike this am as there are only about 6 weeks til the 1/2 marathon at Disney. I feel like I am as ready as I will ever be but Mr. S has the feeling that we need to be better. Here's hoping!! After we walk we are going to Home Depot and buy a small belt sander for my bamboo project. Yesterday I used the leaf blower and cleaned the drive way. Just in time for Louis, our neighbor who is the jack of all trades, to come and seal our driveway. How did I know!!! Note to self: Stop watching the Rick Bayless mexican cooking show. Reason being is that I feel compelled to replicate what I see. Last night I made Puerco Carnitas. Boy was that good. Okay enough useless information for one time. Got to make breakfast. (American) Eggs and turkey bacon. lol I love you all Stay warm and safe and take care of U. Doesn't Miss Oreo have a tough life???

Good Monday Morning before Thanksgiving to all: It is a little cloudy here today but it will probably burn off by noon. Today I will go get my Thanksgiving Feast groceries. I am also going to work some more on my bamboo project. I am a little sore from all the sanding. Don is filling out Tom and Tom Jr's cruise documents on the internet. Well need to make breakfast and get this day started now that the blog is complete. More later. Brominator, glad you are feeling better.

Happy Sunday

Good Afternoon to the readers of me: Well the best laid plans of men and mice go astray. I actually worked on my bamboo candleholders today. I was feeling crafty. I spent the morning sanding these pieces of bamboo and making them smooth. It was fun except that my hands and arms are sore and tired from all the sanding. I am now watching the Giants play football and trying not to get upset with them. Well just wanted to make sure everyone knows what I'm doing. Love to all.

Super Saturday

Good Afternoon to all: Just a quick blog to fulfill my duty of blogging daily. Got up this morning and had our coffee on the lanai and decided to walk before breakfast. Went down to the lake and had a nice 1.6 mile walk. Then we stopped a McDonald's for breakfast and went ot Wally world. Picked up a couple of cans to put the yard debris in. Tomorrow I will work some more on the yard. Okay enough for now. Love you all.

Just finished my coffee on the lanai and now am contemplating the cooking of breakfast. I think I am going to start working on my bamboo candles today. I am feeling crafty so we will see. Am hoping that the Giants come through for me this weekend. Hopefully the bye week was good for them in more than one way. Jessica crossed the Equator. YEH She is my heroine. It makes me feel like I am on the boat with her. Glad she blogs as it gives me something to read. Love to all and stay safe and warm and may all your problems be little ones.

Good Thursday afternoon to all my pals and anyone else who happens upon my ramblings: Sorry for this being late, if I don't blog at breakfast time, I go off and before I know it the morning has turned to afternoon. Did a few errands, post office and Wally World and went down to the lake and walked on the dike. Need to get going earlier as it is too warm after 11 am. I know from some of you, you should be so lucky that the temps were too warm. lmao New Moon opens tomorrow but our theater is having a special showing at 11:30 pm tonight. We are contemplating it but I know I probably won't go out that late. I'll let you all know tomorrow. Okay got to go now more tomorrow. Love to all.

Read Jessica's Blog

Ahoy To All the Faithful: Sorry for being so neglectful in my blogging but things are very quiet here and not really very interesting. Raking leaves and doing chores is hardly very exciting. But if you want a good read and are interested, read Jessica Watson's Blog. She is a 16 year old Australian girl who is sailing around the world. I find it mesmerizing and it brings out the adventurous side of me. She is trying to be the youngest person to do this. It is nice to live vicariously through someone else. Okay it is time to cook breakfast. Love to all More later

Things are Quiet

Good Evening Things are quiet here and not much blogging material. We went out with Flo and Don last night for Spaghetti at the American Legion and went back to their house and played some 500. Yeh, we won a game. Today we went on a lake trip for Goodwills but it was a bust. They took the Clewiston one and put it in a new loaction and it is about 3 times bigger than the old one. It is overwhelming. Did not find anything good. Other problem was there was nothing I was looking for. Okay more tomorrow Love to all

Marvelous Monday

Good Afternoon to all the faithful: We are back on the path and walking on the dike as the weather is getting cooler. It has been a little windy though. I put my mini me back on the blog. The numbers still don't correspond but it does register and I can check it on the site. The blogs are pretty mundane now that we are home but I guess that will have to do. The Giants did it again. I think I am done with watching football. I get too aggravated with them. I think I'll watch tiddily winks. lol Donna, hope your knee is nothing serious. Brominator, hope you are feeling better. Love to all. Stay well and safe.

I will get back on the stick with pictures Love to all
