This and that
Wow! First of all, let me just say what a beautiful day it has been here! Sun, sun, sun, gentle breeze and temp around 72. Sigh . . .
Ok, LOL Got that out of my system. Guess spring fever is in the air. Burpee delivered my ornamental grass starter plants yesterday and I can't wait to get them growing!
Here is what is happening around here. I went to the dentist on Wed. and everything was fine. I have to go back next Wed. for another crown. That will make three down, five more to go. Hey, it beats a root canal! I also had to visit the specialist today, Saturday. He comes once a month to our tiny burg, and lucky me, this was the Saturday. My dentist had noticed what he called a normal "abnormality" and just wanted a second opinion. So sure enough, I spend an hour waiting just for this guy to tell me that my dentist was right. I will chose to look at it as a blessing that it wasn't something else serious. Apparently I have these blue tattoo's on the inside of both my cheeks from biting them. Over the years the silver in my fillings has turned the skin blue. I have heard of this before, no big deal really. Just thankful that it didn't have to be biopsied for melanoma, which was the second choice!
This morning I went to a "Stamping it up" party for a friend. I don't do much of that, but they has some seriously wicked - cool stuff there! Had a great time and was extremely proud of myself for not eating any of the yummy looking food that was offered. I am thinking we need to start a stamping/scraping club here in our burg. Yea I know, any excuse to get out of the house. Just think, Monday is book club day!!! LOL
Speaking of yummy food and being proud. Last Thursday was my first weigh in at WW, and I did ok. I lost 2.8 lbs. I was hoping for more. Sometimes your first week you can drop five or more. The leader gave me the standard analogy, with the box of butter and the four butter sticks. Each stick is 1/4 pound so each box is one pound. That means I lost 2 and 1/2 boxes of butter. When you think of it that way . . . I don't know, maybe I was just being affected by the weather. We had torrential rain falling and were under a tornado watch from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. Fun huh? Happens all the time here. Still wouldn't trade it for the snow I left though!
Well I can hear DH outside tilling up the flower beds. He will need direction on where to plant the ornamental grass. And yes, I paid money for grass! LOL My oldest son is giving me grief over this. Aren't teenagers cute?
