If you didn't see the photo on my last blog entry you won't get anything from the title of this one!
After a beautiful day yesterday, it is starting to get warmer and will be downright hot for the rest of the week I'm tired of the ups and downs and am ready for a cool fall (in Sacramento, yeah right!)
I spent the day with Jeannie and Arianna yesterday - a trip to Costco and trying to figure out how to hang some photos on a blank bedroom wall. I've decided that will be my rogue's gallery of my kids and grandkids. I need to buy a few more 5 x 7 frames to match the others and then we can start hanging them on the wall. They will be the last thing I see at night and the first thing when I wake up in the morning.
After being off blood thinners for at leat 2 years I was doing fine without the awful bruising, but it's started up again. Some internet searching of ingredients in one of the new eye meds I'm taking reveals they contain green tea extracts as well as some other herbs that act as diuretics. Needless to say I'm not going to take them anymore. I also think it is affecting my eyes now and then, and I'm wondering what a blood thinner would do to the eyes. Hopefully I'll see a change fairly soon. I even bought some teabags a few weeks ago containing green tea as I read somewhere that it is so good for you. I've only brewed one cup of it because I didn't care much for it. I am glad to have an excuse to not drink any more of it!
Today Jeannie and I cashed in our recycled bottles, cans , etc. We had very few cans but lots of heavy bottles. The money goes into a savings account with the kids' college funds. I'm happy to contribute my recycling but my kitchen really doesn't have room to accumulate the stuff. I'm thinking about buying a smaller garbage can with lid and keeping them outside but I'd better check with the Park police first or they will "ding" me with a "no no note"!
I know I've been sitting too much in the past few months, so I've been trying to do more around the house. Since I spent the time cleaning the venetian blinds in the kitchen I decided to wash the windows today - can't have clean blinds on dirty windows - my Mom would come back to haunt me.
I'm so looking forward to my art classes the day after tomorrow (Wednesday). I may end up wishing I didn't take them back to back, 2 hrs each with a 30 min. break in between, but I think I'll keep my enthusiasm and energy levels up for both classes.
I didn't walk today and am debating driving over to the gym, or just forgetting about it until tomorrow morning. I'll probably wait until tomorrow. I am craving sweets right now and don't know where that is coming from - I had a good dinner and am full. I already ate my ice cream bar for today (the skinny cow stuff). I'll be glad when I can finish what I have and go buy some really tasty stuff. Costco was handing out samples of their signature vanilla ice cream yesterday and I could easily get re-hooked. The trouble with buying it in half gal. containers is that it's so easy to go back and add a little more ice cream to the bowl, whereas I won't go back for another individually wrapped ice cream bar. For anyone who doesn't shop at Costco, you should know they give out samples throughout their store. It's a great idea for them as well as for their customers - some of my favorite products were foods I tried as samples.
JUST THINK OF WARM SUNNY DAYS AND SPRING FLOWERS AL:))
