That is a great habit for every diabetic, I just can't do it! Wearing shoes at home prevents a lot of bumps, scrapes and scratches!

My Doctor harps at me to wear shoes all the time, he says wear them or some day you may not need them!

The guy has a great bedside manner!

Not sure about great bedside manner, AB, gah!

I bought 2 flats of plants the other day from the local greenhouse, as opposed to my usual 8-12 flats. I'm quite proud of myself! Just finished planting up a few whiskey barrels with hibiscus that I grow in big pots year 'round, along with dug-up Creeping Jenny that self-seeded, and some other stuff. That used up one flat. Now I just have tomatoes, peppers, and seeds to go. Over the years, I've put in so many perennials and shrubs that it would be rare to find a square inch in which to plant something new.

My husband is the same way. He has what he calls "tenner slippers." He cuts the tongue out of his old Nikes and removes the laces. Then he can just slip them off and on.

My dog is 13 years old and is not always good at telling us he has to go out, especially at night. Several times I have been very happy that I always have shoes on in the house!

I like him, no pussyfooting around!

He always tells me what I should do or have done and then he adds "of course you have the right to refuse treatment" and I usually do!

We get along just fine!

Heh. No "footing" around either!

I am sitting here wondering if the recent myriad of snipey posts has something to do with the lack of stimulating cooking discussion threads... or even the lighthearted posts of everyday occurrences. Far too many doom and gloom posts here lately, IMO.
This has to be an all time low for post counts/day.
And before anyone can say it, I will, the weather had broken and everybody is outside now, lol. Yeah, nobody turns a computer on in Spring.
Oh, and I'm watching TV, too.

I had to carve up a whole leg of lamb for shish kebab for tomorrow night's dinner. It's been a lot of years since I've done this so it took a long time to do it carefully so I had big pieces to cut into cubes. There is a fair amount of trimming of silverskin and extra fat. I decided to do it this way because the boneless legs are pretty badly hacked up so it's not possible to get as much whole muscle to cube for kebabs.

I started with about a 12 Lb leg and ended up with 5.25 LB of kebabs, 1.6 Lb of other pieces of good lamb for stew, shepherds pie, etc. The rest was a big leg bone and trimmings.

Now it's cubed and in the fridge with pieces of onion and garlic getting delicious.
