All Quiet Last Night

I was pleased to not have the noise and activity under my house last night.  I don't know if the raccoon got tired of it, or whether the spice barrier across his opening to the crawl space is to be credited.  I found out today that ants do not tolerate cinnamon and will not cross a barrier of this spice.  I had mixed it with black pepper so maybe it worked on the raccoon or whatever animal was making all the noise.  I will spread a bit more just to make sure, and will add cayenne to the powder the next time.  

I went to the gym with Jeannie today and walked on the treadmill plus did a fair workout.  After pounding pavement around my home park the past 3 days it felt weird to be on the treadmill, and to tell the truth I can't say which I prefer.   It just feels good to be moving and to get a bit of exercise.  I followed it up with 7 min. on the hydromassage bed, although when the jets of water reached my hipbone where the biopsy was done I sure could feel it.  I haven't noticed it hurting lately but the pressure of the jets were evidently too strong.

The biopsy results are finally in and I will visit the dr. to discuss them this coming Tuesday. 

We followed up our gym visit with a trip to Target.  I'm sorry but the past few times I've been to Target I've been disappointed in not being able to find what I wanted, and if I found it, it was very overpriced.    It was so nice getting out today, and I felt exhilarated after working out at the gym. 

Have a great weekend, y'all!


  1. No night noise - yippee. I made those Boston cream cupcakes yesterday. Really good but too much work. I'd do it as a two layer cake next time. That would be much easier.

    1. Boston cream cupcakes or cake sound so delicious. I'm going to try to reduce my sugar intake so I probably should stay away from desserrts. I don't know when I started craving sweets because in my younger years I wasn't so bad.

  2. How great that your home remedy looks like it worked. I always have more energy after exercising. Seems like I'd be tired but I'm not. I always feel better.

    1. The spices look like they did the trick. I remember back when your goal was to walk 10,000 steps a day. Do you still aim for that.
