Here are some of today’s sights from the Hobbles McGee and Kasia tour.
I am having a full week, so it really is imperative that I manage to spend some time with my buddy, Kasia.
I’m hoping by next week that MAYBE , if I am lucky, I’ll be out of the boot. It’ll probably take a year for my foot to dry up, because the humidity has been crappy.Hopefully , we can start walking a little while longer every time. It’s been rough with the boot. Kasia is usually ready to turn around and head for home. Zush used to walk forever. Kasia and I have to get with the program!
This is a picture of a dragonfly we saw in the yard coming back home.
Have a good day, dear reader. Stay cool!
I have used the book pictured above with some success in the past. I used it because I wanted to, and it became my food bible.
Now, for something different, I NEED this book for medical reasons. It would appear that carbohydrate count will be a part of my daily life. So, in order to thoroughly embrace this, we went food shopping. We did this with one catch. I read the labels on each and on every product that went in the cart. Nothing with carbs over 10 .Assuming that my limit would be roughly. 60-70 grams of carbs a day. It was really a shock when I looked at juice, yes, JUICE, and saw 36 carbs a serving. I shook my head and really figured that eating right is really going to have to be my daily religion. If I don’t, I might not have a day to be around in.
I really want to thank three of my besties, Juls, Bonnie and JP. After talking with you guys over the last few weeks, To my buddy Kath, bestie from way back…you always have my back even through our TBMP days together.** hugs to you all.**
I KNOW I can do this.
You have met my Godson Luca. Here is his big brother Matti. He is my buddy. Because of the time I spent with the kindergarten and pre-K classes, I try to get him in thoughts of pre K. Unfortunately, due to his October birthday. He has to wait until next September.
He is an active funny little comedian. I can hardly wait to see him in a classroom situation. He has a mind that you can see go a mile a minute. He loves his little brother, Luca.
As you can see in the first picture, Matti is hugging his favorite dinosaur. Luca opts for rights to it when Matti isn’t around.
Matti and Luca both love that their maternal grandparents are here. They love them to pieces.
They are my two sweethearts.
I am blessed to have them both in my life.
Although it was a pretty day today, the humidity was so bad that, after coming in from Kasia’s walks today, I’d swear that even my eyebrows were sweating. I was hoping for a little cooler weather, but it was not to be.
Kasia has hung in there with my foot in the boot during our walks. I know she’d like to go a little further. I try to walk her in the shade to make thing easier on pads on her feet. When we both manage to get back in, I think we both look at each other and just pass out from the heat.
Try to stay cool, dear readers, and hydrate in this heat. Keep everyone in your family, including fur children, in the shade.
Please allow me to introduce you to the newest member of my family. Yes, It is a grown up iPad.
Not my MacBook Pro or my iPad mini, but a bonafide iPad.
Perhaps the great Undisclosed location novel will be thought of on it.
In the current swarm of medical anxiety sweeping around my head, I have a moment of hope. I am hoping for a long and happy relationship with it.
It’s good being a content Apple customer.
God, If I only could….
The break is in two bones in my left foot. It ended up in a boot on Friday the 13th.
**read bad mojo here**
I have taken to wearing long black yoga pants in an attempt to keep the boot from irritating my leg. I am on an antibiotic to act as a prophylactic for potential cellulitis.
Next week I have a three day stretch of medical testing making my mind just spin crazy.
Signing off now to think good thoughts…
There was enough breeze, albeit warm, to sit on our back deck and have no mosquito interruptions.
We came out after dinner and after seeing the wind moving tree leaves around, we figured we’d see what we are missing.
Kas is all sprawled out, taking in the air.Today was the first day that the two of us resumed taking our walks as we did pre-company.Ever respectful, she sees my broken foot in the boot and tries to give me slack.
We had a great day!
