Breakfast with a buddy is one thing that not often occurs – the weblog and social media take up my morning occasions (no regrets) and my days are full leaving my free time within the night.
It was only a deal with to sit down and discuss and eat and discuss and snicker and discuss – and we do not do it typically sufficient although we dwell roughly 1/2 mile aside.
There should be extra of this type of visiting.
(And please pardon the folded laundry on prime of the desk – I am doing what I can to maintain myself from going stir loopy, and which means I can sit and fold. It is as much as The Hubs to place away at this level.)

And they’re cooking up a storm.
I used to be capable of head over after dinner for a QPO go to and laughed and laughed when Rebecca advised me there was TOO MUCH FOOD and so they’d have to remain 3 weeks to eat all of it. All 3 fridges are full to the gills.

Every one in every of these has turned out SO stunning, and so totally different – simply primarily based on what of us have of their stash! Have you ever began one? Do you could get in there and end the one you have began?
TODAY!! You understand what at the moment is. It is the Nice Escape to the Haircut day. The day I can formally begin weight bearing in small quantities. With a great deal of breaks. And many relaxation. And elevation once I can.
In different phrases – GO SLOW.
I will likely be dropped off at Martha’s automobile, and she’s going to drive us each to get coiffed, and a drive-through lunch will occur and we’ll come again. It is sufficient.
She is going to drop me off on the QPO the place I’ll love a lot on Lola and maintain mail order and go to with whomever needs to return down. (PJ’s or not!)
After which it can seemingly be afternoon nap time – and THEN. THEN…
I simply could possibly sit on the machine and piece a bit.
I am pondering string blocks as a result of I can sit on the machine and press on the machine. I can elevate my leg, there will not be numerous up-down-up-down and I can straightforward again into issues.
So far as the chopping desk goes – I’ve positioned a small bench in entrance of the desk so I can knee-up on it maintaining my weight on my good leg. I’ve achieved this on the kitchen sink, and on the counter whereas chopping veggies for a salad. It is a ache transferring a bench round, however hey – no matter it takes to remain off the foot, and nonetheless be standing.
I’ll take small sensible wins the place I can discover them.
And right here is one other one I meant to submit a few weeks in the past, however this complete factor occurred:
We love these items. However for what it’s – it’s extremely costly.
And I hate throwing away good refillable bottles. Even the refills do not save a lot cash, after which you’re throwing away nearly the identical quantity of plastic.
So I attempted this. And it really works nice!
Subsequent time I’ll strive the 16 oz. recipe with 3 oz. of Daybreak and see if that does not make only a bit extra suds.
I am undecided what the alcohol does, perhaps it helps with eradicating grease?
However this works. And saves a lot cash.
For these questioning about measuring ounces – my clear glass measuring cups record each cup measurements AND ounces.
I will be including this to the recipes tab so you will discover it later. After you employ it, let me know what you suppose.
