We had a wonderful time yesterday guys

We ate lots of cinnamon donuts, icecream, hot dogs etc

Bought a few showbags, had a really good look around and watched a few of the shows..oh and went for a ride on the ferris wheel of course

We were so tired when we got home, it takes a lot out of you and we were there for about 5 or 6 hours

Getting everyone off to school and work. Day off for me thankfully. Had my coffee and some leftover stir fry for breakfast. I've got lots of piddly chores to keep me busy today. I've got to reorganize some spots in the house and fold several mountains of laundry. I think my biggest effort today will be on making dinner. Now all I have to do is decide what to make!

I may make a batch of bagels today. Not sure if I have enough toasted onion flakes. If not, it's a good excuse to go to Penzeys. I need some other stuff there as well.

This morning I am cleaning all of the "old people clutter" off of my kitchen counter and shelves!

The stuff creeps in a little at a time and it all seems useful or important when it comes in but then it begins to drive me crazy!

A number of years ago Penzeys had a 'contest' asking customers to write in where they would like the next store to be located. The location with the most votes was selected. The store is in an heavily populated inner suburb of Boston. I'm in an outer suburb, close to the NH border. It's been there for a few years now. They have sample jars of the herbs and spices you can smell before buying.

I just have to pay for gas instead of shipping charges.

I was going to have the surgery on my leg. In a week my son was getting married. I told my surgeon all I wanted was to be able to dance just five steps with my son at his wedding. If the surgery wasn't successful, they could amputate my leg after the wedding.

The surgery worked. I was escorted to my seat, walking! And I danced at the wedding. I danced with my son, the disc jockey, all the Albanians I had never met, all the males in my family. I danced all night long. The next morning I couldn't get out of bed or even move my leg. Back to the hospital. But it was all worth it. All I needed was to rest the leg. A couple of days later I was fine. Haven't danced a step since. And I haven't used the wheelchair or walker since.

When the kids were small, I used to fold the laundry while I watched TV. Made the chore go faster. Also did the ironing the same way.
