Well, now

Got the stitches out of the ankle and really doing well. Still swells up like a little tick ,especially if overdo but doc says that is to be expected.  Get some compression socks... ICK...
Got ALL of those stupid leaves bagged, checked the truck and it started right up this afternoon, so hope to get them to the dump/debris recycle tomorrow
Cleaned up around the yard, cutting things back and have a huge pile will put in recycle bin when they pick up the full one tomorrow
Hair done yesterday and nails today, so am happy camper  ;)
Got new lens in a couple frames I have on hand here and got to pick those up today, haven't worn these frames for a couple years as have an old prescription in them, so like I have new glasses!! Well the lens is new, not the frames... does that make sense??
All seems to be going well
Take Care and God Bless all

Leaves About!!

Look at Carl!!!
He sits out there, on the other side of the fence is Wally, a mid size poodle, that comes out and they bark at one another. Even tho he can hardly stand up and walks like a drunken sailor, he is ready to absolutely kill Wally, little does Wally know... ha!!!
Carl charges the fence and barks and snarls and bites at the fence, he is beyond himself. I take it as his exercise and cardio vascular workout....

There are still some leaves up there, but most are down and all over the neighborhood!!!

I swear they are knee high out there. Carl loves to tromp thru them and do his duty right on the top of the pile.  Going to be such fun trying to get them up!!! I use gloves, of course.

Went out and sat in my chair for awhile, it was so very nice out there, no wind, just really, really nice.  Good weather for picking up leaves!!!!

Just finished a really good book "the Lilac Girls" by Martha Hall Kelly. It is a WWII novel about the medical experiments on women in the women's only concentration camp, Ravensbruck, in Germany. It was really horrid.  Some survived and Caroline Ferriday a NY socialite raised money and got donations to bring 63 of them from Poland to the US to get medical aide and reconstructive surgery. It was a bittersweet, heartening story of our involvement and compassion following WWII.  It was really well written from Caroline's point of view, one of the survivors, and the Doctor that performed many of the 'experiments' (very true story) It covered the period of time from 1939 to 1959... So you really got involved in their stories/lives and how they got to where they ended.  Good, good book.

Ankle and Carl Update

 Had my hardware removal surgery Monday and all went really well! Am pleasantly surprised that really have no pain. Well- the first night I had to take a Vicodin but none since and can hop about fairly good.  Have appt on 27th to have stitches out and am sure all will be fine!!!
So am sitting about the house, reading and watching TV

Below is what Luci is doing and below that is Carl and what he is doing.. He is really not doing very well, limps horribly, is on two different pain pills. he would normally sleep most all the time anyway, so hard to tell if he is over drugged or not. Does nor appear to be pain. Eats as normal and out put is the same, sooooo, only thing he does now is pee where ever he wants if you are not jolly on the spot, so if he is left alone in house for any length of time........ yep! And I have to be attentive to when he moves about and might be ready to release, hee-hee....

Oh, and the leaves are falling really badly in back yard.... on and on....

Take Care all, have a great Fall and God Bless

Today was house cleaning day.... nothing like a clean, smell good house!!! Laundry on-going.... Have to get all of this done, so that I can sit here for two weeks after the hardware removal from ankle and heal and not be on foot.... So takes a little bit of planning ahead to get ready.  Leaves are finally starting to fall.  Rain today.. Ordered pizza, LOVE to do that.  have got to get the paper in order, have stacks of 'stuff' laying about, mail is hard lately to get thru and rid of for some reason. Get lots of catalogs in the mail, usually go to the recycle bin.  But little notes here and there of things I need to do, calls to make... and I just put things off, don't want to for some reason tend to them, oh well, suppose eventually all will get done..... Have found if things lay there long enough, when I finally go thru it, there are things that are no longer relevant and don't need to take care of after all or decided to NOT do what I had thought I would do no longer important...

Getting Ready

Getting ready for Winter... had little pick up serviced, did not need an oil change.  Took back pole saw! And since the chain fell off and we could use it for about 20 minutes, they gave me back my rental fee, Yah!! Then took two loads of debris to the dump.  Got a load of gravel to place about for decoration and hopefully to deter weeds, got the bigger size, and did not think of it but the bigger the rocks the heavier they are, geez!  But Brian was home and he helped me.. Felt sorry for me I guess.  BUT when I say I need his help he has been good to jump in and help, lately.
Picture is of Mt Washington from near Sisters.
