There are times I feel like spirilizing the computer Kim.  Geeze what a typo.  yup it was a cucumber.    I'm getting to go to the Farmers Market uptown tomorrow.  I'm so excited.  I haven't been to one in years.  Maybe I'll find my missing cilantro, chive and lettuce plants.  My connection with Safe Passage sure has enhanced my life in a big way.  

Good idea to get out early for kitty Kim.  

I'm having such fun with my Zendoodle doggie tote bag.   I'm using Crayola and heat setting.  I love how that works with melting the wax out and setting the colors into the fabric.    Here he is ~~

Your salad sounds very good Thel. Well, except for the computer. I hope maybe you spiralized a cucumber and not your computer.

I don't plan on going very far this weekend. I do have to go up to the village each day to feed the cat but I will go early in the morning before it gets to bad.

That's great news Kim.  Continue prayers for your dad.   I bet that traffic gets really crazy.  Do you prepare and stay tucked in so you don't have to be out with all the tourists?  

I just enjoyed a spirilized computer salad with tomatoes & scallions topped with basil from the garden, sautéed mushrooms & onions & tenderloin strips along with a few steamed asparagus.  Boy, it was good.

Kim, so happy to hear your dad's blockage can be treated with medicine. Hopefully it won't take long to get his med regulated to the proper blood pressure.

Comment by Kim Webb 10 hours ago


We are back home and everything went well. The blockage is small that is there and the doctor believes he can treat it with medication instead of a stent. However they did give him the medicine in the hospital and it really dropped his blood pressure. So that will have to be worked out yet with a medication that won't effect his blood pressure. It's already pretty low to start with. Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes.

And boy is traffic already starting before this Memorial Day weekend. It's a big one here for the tourists.

So happy you don't need any surgery now Mary Alice. That must be a relief.

That's great news on the MRI, Mary Alice. I hear you on the colonoscopy. You really need your privacy when prepping for one!

I used to do that with patterns too Mary.   I should go through them again. 

Boy Rita,  you sure are doing awesome !  It's so wonderful to see you here. I bet Finn is glad to have less cooking to do.  Is he enjoying the outdoor work?  Yah, I can't see the back of my head either so I ignore it !  I still sit for the shower.  I should try without it being that I've improved so much.   Take it easy on those stairs. 

I love shopping at my favorite market because I know exactly where everything is, aisle by aisle and can organize my list well.  

I'd call it a day after all that too Mary Alice.  I'm tired just reading your first paragraph.  Great for no surgery.    I hope Filipe shows up and you enjoy it.  

I got another bandana complete and have been doing other coloring.  I need to fix something to eat.

Hello all!  Finished irrigating the side yard.  Then proceeded to clean our 3 car carport, move some things by wall to clean behind.  Man it was filthy with all our winds!  We still had leaves on the carport.  After I swept it with big broom, then I used blower to blow dust off, then hosed it down, then hosed it down with bug spray.  I also hosed down walls, and window sills.  And cleaned outside windows.  Came back inside and called it a day!  

Debating whether to go to Post office or just wait till tomorrow.  I need to write out some bills to mail out, plus I'm just beat.

Dr called yesterday afternoon with MRI results.  They show 2 areas where there is a pinched nerved, but it looks pretty good and no need to surgery at this time.  YAY!  Not sure what to do about pinched nerves, but  I'm doing outside yard work okay.  I'm sore by nightfall, but it's a good feeling to get this stuff done and out of the way. 

I need  to make up my SAMS list too.  Mostly just need fresh fruits and veggies.  Maybe a good slice of meat.  I'd love some brisket!

I still need to schedule my endoscopy and colonoscopy, but wondering if I should wait a month or so.  I think my cousin Felipe is coming down around June 7 and will stay 2 weeks or so.  Not sure yet.  But I don't want to have to drink that stuff for colonoscopy and get the runs while he's here.  I'd like to enjoy his visit and having him help me get a few things done around our house.

I think I'm off to go shower and rest.  I still need to work on my Stitcher's Garden, but I figure I've worked so hard on the  yard that I will just clean house on Friday and enjoy  Saturday and Sunday off.

Rita- I don't have issue with stairs.  Using the steam cleaner on the stairs is hard.  Machine is heavy and you have to balance it for a few steps cause even though there's a hose it simply doesn't reach the whole area.   That's really the only area that's difficult, other than that it's just the same as vacuuming.

DGS2 is coming to mow my yard tomorrow, Thel! Yippee! Yes, Mr. B is learning how to take care of himself. It's definitely good for him. 

I quit doing the steam cleaning of the carpets, Mary. It was hard, and made me hurt too much! Good for you, though. That's a lot of patterns! I have a bunch, too. I should do the same. Most of mine are purchased, so I would pass them on to someone else. 

I got me a list, and now need to get busy and go to the store. I'm going to go to Crest, not the commissary. Mix it up some. I just wish I knew what is on each row, so I could organize my list.
