Christine we are on day 4 of our awesome pact!! tomorrow is points day!!! ♥ ♥ we will do it!!
I love hummus as a dip!! also a spinach type dip is one of my favorites too!! yogurt is pretty yummy too :-)
I had a busy day today!! I had physical therapy, walked 2 dogs, went swimming & ran errands. I was running out of peanuts for the blue jays & squirrels!! we had more rain today & the pond is overflowing into the neighbor's yard even more. it hasn't come to my yard yet! it is fun to see the ducks swimming where there was grass & the lawn!! one of the wood ducks was sitting on the rail of my deck today. that was a first!! they seem to prefer the neighbor's wooden fence as it has a flat top to stand on. both mallards & wood ducks have their "duck parties" hanging out on the fence!! too funny to watch :-) the ground is so saturated from all the rain, there are puddles all over my yard!! the ducks are in heaven with the puddles & bigger pond to swim around in!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!! ♥ ♥ ♥
I try to get enough sleep & be in bed 8 hrs before I have to get up! I do have sleep issues with fibromyalgia & often wake up too early which is a bummer :-( I really don't like taking pills to sleep unless I am desperate. other things to help me fall asleep are reading before bed or listening to a book CD! I don't have a tv in the bedroom either.
today I saw the dr for a follow up about my arthritis in my knee. even though I will need a knee replacement they want to delay it as long as possible due to my age. I guess those knee replacements only last 10-15 yrs! I had a steroid shot in my right knee. I was petrified! it was intense & I got a delayed anxiety reaction!! I was ok but who wants a needle in your knee?? at least it is over with!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday! ♥ ♥ ♥
challenge done while walking dogs today!
Christine we are on day 2 of our most awesomest pact!
I fell asleep at the computer last night & couldn't finish up commenting on people's posts. so sorry!!
I have been having fun putting the peanuts out for the blue jays & now the squirrels are savvy to free peanuts! I had a squirrel come up the deck stairs & I didn't realize it was there & opened the screened door. the poor squirrel got startled & dropped it's peanut! he/she started down the stairs & I said to it, come back & get your peanut!! it stopped in it's tracks & turned around, came back to get it's peanut!! I think that squirrel understood what I said!! too funny :-)
have a great day tomorrow!!

I am off to bed, had a late impromptu date night with hubby! We enjoyed the new movie, Bridget Jones baby!
thank you Diana & Lynne for the encouragements!! ♥ ♥
I don't have any luck making a photo appear on this site. I do have plenty of photos that make me happy & mean a lot to me on my phone! photos of the grandkids & my children for starters! :-)
while I was driving around to the various homes of the dogs I walked today, I noticed lots more color in the trees!! Fall is here! the nights are cooler which is great! one of my dogs, Teddy had gotten into the dirty dishes in their kitchen sink. I found both a spatula & fry pan licked clean & both on the floor! he is a stinker!! ;-D the owners used to leave fruit & food out on the kitchen counter until he figured out how to get to the bags of food. one day I came there finding a bag of oranges he had bit into with oranges all over the floor!
thank you Christine for the pact invite!! until tomorrow!!

At home in the summer, doing yard work like gardening keeps me active. Filling my bird feeders keeps me active too!! on Friday last week I spent 2 hrs washing all my bird feeders (I have 14 feeders right now). Housework of course like running the vacuum, washing floors, dusting & even laundry! today I must of went up & down the steps at least 10 times between washing bedding, watering indoor plants, etc. I like to keep moving if I can!
today was a relaxing Sunday! besides doing laundry & watering plants! I didn't have to cook as we went out for supper to my favorite Asian restaurant. I had a $15 off coupon! chef's choice chicken & stir fry veggies with teriyaki sauce. it was so good! brought home leftovers too :-)
I hope everyone has a great start to their week!
♥ ♥ ♥
challenge done!! always good to clean knobs & doorknobs etc!!
I sure had a busy week. glad to have taken the time off. I was exhausted every night & would of fallen asleep at the computer! I had things daily going on. walking dogs daily, swimming, driving grandkids from school to their home (about 2 hrs of driving!), physical therapy, a cooking class for my health insurance co pay reduction & acupuncture! started my women's bible study class. we are studying the book of John.
I enjoyed bits of nature I saw too! one day I saw 2 baby raccoons, very small that were in someone's yard. when they saw me drive by, they started to climb up a tree!! saw a hawk fly in front of my car & have been enjoying the birds in my yard! there is a pair of female hummingbirds that come to my feeder daily. I was walking one of the dogs who lives close to me & I think the same pair flew by us. one stopped at a flower about 2 feet from me, flying over the head of the dog Rex! too cool :-)
I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
thanks to Diana & Kris for the nice encouragements :-)
