Whatever it was trying to catch me, finally caught up. I've spent most of the day in bed. Making French Onion Soup as a cure-all.
I'm tall (5' 7" until I started to shrink...) and I've never had much of a waist. My hip bones and my bottom ribs like each other too much.

PF, hope you get over whatever you have quick! Even if you aren't in the Christmas spirit, you don't want to be feeling poorly for your anniversary.

Hand bells are just one type of weight. You want to know what else will work? Two equal-weighted cans.

My hands are so small, I can't even get them around an Campbell's soup can. And those don't have much weight to them. To give you an idea, I wear kids mittens and gloves. When I say I am small, I am really small. If I can lose just ten more pounds, I can start shopping in the kids department for clothes. And just hope what I like is not too big for me. Ten more pounds and I can fit into a child's size 14.

Ditto here. Put on some happy music. And enjoy your onion soup. Remember all the people here and elsewhere who love you.

Stray Thoughts 2.0

I just taught a Mexican guy who opened up a new restaurant, how to make a margarita. I'm going to fall over pretty soon. He had us taste a few samples to make sure it was right.

2 parts tequila, one part orange liqueur (controy, cointreau, triple sec, whatever. ). Any orange liquor. And fresh squeezed lime, lemon, orange, citrus juice. None of that nasty sweetened crap.

He was really appreciative, especially after we told him his first drinks were swill. And way too sweet. And he let me have at it with recipes with his bartender!

Who knew the ones we had to do in gym, are also good for bat wings. I was doing some of them along with this very young girl. My arms hurt. So they must work. And one of the ones for double chin (something I am lacking) is one a physical therapist taught me years ago to prevent a muscle spasm in my neck. Maybe that is why I don't have one. I am in better shape than I thought.
When I had to go to physio following a car accident, I was told to use canned goods as my "hand bells." When I first started, I could only lift a 6 oz. can of tomato paste. Canned soup, beans, bags of sugar, etc., all work as weights that one can use at home.

I really hope the Ogress feels better soon.

Happy anniversary, Ogress.

Cat sent a text wishing all of you whom she loves so much this: "I wish for them to have the merriest of Christmas and all of life's beauty and pleasures through the New Year of 2015. With love, Cat."

Word for word; she has never stopped thinking about any of us here, bless her.

Dangitall I miss that brilliant, charming, funny little pipsqueak!

I found a surprise in my front door this morning. Someone (and I don't know who yet) had put a cute Christmas sweatshirt with kittens with Santa hats on my front door! They just tucked it through the handle with no note, no nothing.

I called several usual suspects, but no one has fessed up. I'll admit I'm notorious for leaving little things on peoples' porches with no note, but this is the first time anyone has ever done this to me.

Wow...just wow. Ain't life just great sometimes?

Two small bottles of Coke would work too. They have a natural "waist" that would make them easy to hold.

When I as rehabbing from rotator cuff surgery, a bottle of soy sauce had a total weight of 2 pounds. Two bottles worked well until I graduated to a higher weight.
