Day 13 - No Camera Blues

You are stuck with a LOUSY picture of the picture over my fireplace. Because I can NOT learn to carry my camera with me. I figured WHY would I need to carry my camera to the inlaw's house where I spent 4 hours trying to teach them how to use their new phones.

Since I was a nice DIL (a rare event) I did get hubby to meet me for supper where I saw 2 BALD EAGLES. DH did attempt to go home and retrieve camera before they disappeared - but camera turned into paper weight because the memory card was in the card reader from last night. Oh well - nice try for Doug.

So lesson learned AGAIN - carry camera at ALL times.

Day 12 - Sportsaholic

My husband is a sports nut. His passion is golf but he LOVES watching every collegiate sporting event available. Especially for his alma maters Wake Forest and Texas A&M

So the other night was a dream for him - basketball season - Wake Forest vs. North Carolina and Texas A&M vs. Texas Tech - we expected Wake Forest to lose since they are now considered a "football" school since they made it to the Orange Bowl this year. Texas A&M however is ranked 6th in the nation and can beat a measly team from Lubbock - Nope

The defeat of Texas A&M was to the delight of our youngest son who now attends Texas Tech. Thus continues the obligatory phone call from the defeated to say congratulations.

So as a Red Raider Mom I can say - Way to go Tech!

A pine tree just for Anna - LOL

Really busy day - out and about so I'm grateful that this is actually letting me post after giving me error messages earlier.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

Day 10 - Making Do - Shade

The nice thing about having an injured back is my husband is extremely helpful cleaning the house - that means things get hidden - including my OTT light.

I wanted to try this technique but with my body being uncooperative I had to use things I had available at home. The shade is rootc. Lit by my hurricane lamp.

I definitely want to try this again when I have the correct materials

Day 9 - Conquered

With limited sitting time I've learned to do a lot of things on my side. Reading, knitting, typing, etc. Since I live in a house of boys they thought that a Nintendo DS would help me pass time. I have to admit they were right.

Today I completed all the Sudoku puzzles that Brain Age has available. So I guess it's back to playing on paper again unless someone else can suggest how to help me pass time.

Day 8 - The Harness

This is where I have spent an ENORMOUS amount of time over the past year. It is the "unloader" at my physical therapist office. I've been in and out of this contraption enough over the past year that I can actually get in and out of the harness myself as well as adjusting the machine to lower the weight.

I have come to develop a love/hate relationship with this machine. I at least get a lot of magazine reading done while walking. I will say that I am being good about doing the things my physical therapist is asking. I am looking forward to the day I don't have to be on this machine again.

Day 7 - It Begins


3 hours of trying to post this - at least there's football on - LOL

It begins - a new house is coming down the street - this is normally the first sign. So long trees...
