Busy Elfing


 Been a busy little Elf making pillowcases and projects off Pinterest for xmas gifties.  Like using my stash scraps for projects, potholders, jar openers, and what not, also have all of those afghans i have been making... OD'd on Virgin River on Netflix... and some movies.. been reading... Had gotten Clanlands by actors from Outlander, but it is more of a drunken travelog with lots of history and whiskey drinking in the heather/castles of Scotland and it is not turning out to be my cup of tea.... Not every book is good or to even be finished.. i have discovered in my advanced age...

Have started PT for right  hip and left leg issues and seem to work to a point, maybe with a longer period of time it will work to last..

Colonoscopy and endoscopy were all A-ok, nothing in there that should not be... hahaha.. and will NEVER have to do that again...

Put up my xmas door wreath up and the cover on the mailbox, but that is as far as it goes... as long as i have 'stuff' all over the table, draped over chairs and the ironing board set up in the walk way in the kitchen seems sort of not really the time to get all the other stuff out just yet.., and add to the confusion.

ALSO.. in checking my bank acct today discovered someone is using my debit card on my amazon acct!! How does someone even figure out how to do that?  changed password and deleted the card from the acct, tomorrow have to go to the bank n get a NEW card, then deal with all those changes... really.. just the wrong time of year for that crap. at least for me, prob not for them as they are certainly thinking they are going to get something for nothing. there were minor charges, nothing major, but i am sure that would be coming... had i not caught it.. hope it was early enough and things will not start to show up.. i just don't understand people.. if they would expend that smarts and effort in getting a job.. but i guess they don't want to have to actually DO anything..

I just know it is disgusting and i feel violated in some way....

It is cold outside.... Luci does not want to go out... or will just go to the very edge of the sidewalk and not venture into that wet/damp grass.... nosiree

misc...


 
Sunrise was this morning at 6:30am!!! Wow!!! Always amazed when i get up that early and am amazed by the sky colors... this was completely untouched picture.. the colors were just plan beautiful!!

I was up for a physical therapy session, could only get me in this early for the 1st one, later ones will be later in the day, thank heavens!!


Love this little book, copywrite 1963 and again 1991... was at Barnes and Noble.. you know, u are walking by the displays on the aisle and low and behold something catches your eye.... prob as it was so small... sometimes those are the best things... and apparently i like ghoulish... couple of pages follow.. it is the alphabet...



haha.. will share more as time goes by....


Some of the afghans i have made this year.... yes, just some, there are others.. ;)

Leaves!!!!


 Finally!!!!! Got the leaves ALL picked up... seems like it took forever.  Just have to get the last load to te dump!... It was easier picking up this last bunch as it was a bit wet from some rain and snow.  Could get more handfulls of them, then when they are all light and fly away.  There was all kinds of little limbs and sticks too from the last wind storm, too.

it is overcast and COLD out there, i think dampness is in the air and that just gets into your bones...

Hope....


 This was yesterday, we have had two days of rain and then last nite snow flurries, i was able to get most of the big piles of leaves bagged, we took to the dump yesterday.  this was one moment of sun on the rain drops... Brian got this ornamental cherry tree for Mothers day one year and it has been a joy... can watch it out my front window as i sit in my chair...

It is over (hopefully) we have voted.... life will go on, maybe i can stop holding my breathe and not worry what is going to come out of his mouth next... That we had such a racist in control for so long and nothing was done it beyond me...the Lafayette Square debacle was appalling and then just escalated from there.... maybe it is over i can go back to happily watching HGTV and not have the news feeds on 24/7.... we can exhale, be elated that decency and honesty is back in our lives and hope is in our hearts..

Brushing


 Just Sayin'

I have over the last couple of decades had probs with receding gums and ultra sensitivity in teeth.  Am fortunate to have dental insurance that pays for bi-yearly cleaning.  Get alot of tartar also especially in the lower front teeth, inside... and i DO brush diligently and am flossing everytime! i eat....

AND for those of you who don't know i was a dental assistant in the Navy for 3 years, so i certainly know what i need to do to keep my teeth up.  BUT in saying that, things have changed SO much since i had done this that i might as well have been working in the dark ages!!!!

WELL... i have had recommended to me that i should get an electric toothbrush.... and held off.... you look for them and they are expensive!!! Well, my hygenist said, NO you do need to get one of those.... and low and behold you don't!!!! They sell single ones, i found this one at Wal-Mart and it was less that $30.. it was a bit hard to find tho, it is with the toothbrushes, but up high, had to look for it...

AND  it REALLY works.... only had a couple of receding spots and the lower teeth were not bad at all, i could not even see any calculus on them, which i normally had been able to do.  I do use sensitivity paste.... but teeth were NOT sensitive at all this time.... have used the paste for years and always had sensitivity, after using it in conjuction with the brush seems to have done a good job at whatever....  the sensitivity was horrid and like torture to get teeth cleaned, with me jumping here and there when they would hit a spot with their 'tools' .. none of that this time!!!!

And that little thing stays charged for a whole month!! don't have to leave it out on the charger at all, just charge for a couple hours then put the charger away, until it dies, then do it again...

It did take a bit to get used to and it does vibrate ALOT, wakes you right up!

BUT all in all am really pleased, thought i would share.... hope this is not gross for anyone....

Take Care and God Bless
