What's on your Sunday menu?
Good morning everyone. I hope you're all having a great weekend.
not much planned for the day here. I hope it stays that way but we'll see.
The week ahead looks pretty uneventful. I have an appointment with my eye doctor Thursday. That's about it. I may call about getting in to see my pain specialist NP as the pain patch isn't doing much for me. I think the Tylenol 4s did more. Not sure what I'll do. I posted a picture of the CT scan on yesterday's post if anyone wants a look lol
food was tepid of yesterday. Better than the day before and hopefully today will be better than yesterday.
QOTD:Where is the worst smelling place you've been?
About to get real here... a certain part of Amarillo after it rains and the wind is coming from the SW. it straight up smells so badly of cow crap that you can literally TASTE it. So so sooooo bad.
B: JUST egg, cheese, chicken sausage and coffee
S: banana and yogurt
L: fairlife protein shake
S: PB and 1/2 tsp of honey
D: PP shake
pics are from last night and my mom's new fur hat...ha ha
Sometimes life is like sunshine and rainbows ... other times it's a big steaming pile of . . .well you know what.
Just keep swimming!
A friend of mine whom I haven't seen since before the pandemic invited me to go with her to her pool today. Temps should be OK for that. Decent chance of storms later this afternoon, but OK before that - but hopefully it won't be too humid. Although we're going at 11:00, and I doubt we'll be there more than a couple of hours. I can always get in the pool if I get too uncomfortable. I was always a strong swimmer, but now that I color my hair, I don't because the chlorine will strip the color out (not all at once, of course...) - but I can just get in and bop around.
other than that, no plans for the day - and kind of a light week, too. Hurray!
QOTD: I'm sure I've been to smellier places, but the first thing that popped into my mind was this job I had over 20 years ago. There was some guy there *****ally piled on the aftershave or cologne. It was so bad that HR would send out an email once a month or so reminding people that strong perfume or cologne can really bother others - even giving some of them migraines. I don't know why they couldn't just talk to the guy directly since he may not have known the messages were directed at him (even though the rest of us all knew...). I swear there must have been something wrong with his olfactory nerve. Fortunately, his cubicle was on the other side of the building from mine, but since I was one of the IT people at the time, I often had to go over to that side of the building to monkey around with people's computers. I always hated it - because I'm one of those who gets headaches from strong perfume/aftershave/cologne smells. UGH!!
B: probably the last of the cheesecake-flavored yogurt pie (with the mango puree mixed in). Coffee with half & half
MS: my friend said there will be bagels, coffee, and juice at the pool (??) - so I may have a bagel with cream cheese
L: we'll be at the pool. I should be OK having had a bagel.
AS: protein shake
D: either leftover pulled pork or Indian curry, coleslaw made with Asian-style dressing
I need to do weights sometime today since I didn't do them (as planned) yesterday. The gym now closes at 2:00. I may go over there before I go to my friend's to do the exercises I really can't duplicate at home, since I may not have time to go through the whole routine. And the things I CAN do at home (with hand weights), I'll do later on today when I get home...
have a great Sunday, all!
Where I grew up, you would get a smell from the feedlots and processing area right before it snowed. It was bad but by far the worst is the tannery at fez. They use urine, guano, lime etc for the dying...and there are a lot of the stone bats, dating back to the 9th century. Here's a photo of one of the videos i took there. One of the ladies I was traveling with picked up a gorgeous teal camel leather trench coat there, I would love to go back to get one (they could have custom made one for me when I was there but I was pre op and it would have taken a lot more camels).

When my son was about four years old, one day there was a terrible smell in his bedroom. He had taken a little box, lined it with soft cloth and laid a dead mouse in the box. He was planning to keep it warm until it got better.
I had to explain that the mouse was dead and we needed to bury it. He is one of those kids who are always kind and considerate of people and animals. Another time he found an ant, named it Tampy, and made a little house for it in his room. It died after a few days and he cried.
Real life begins where your comfort zone ends
I'm going with New Orleans on a steamy Saturday afternoon. Every time I thought the smell could not get worse, it did. Dead fish and vomit in trash cans. Blech
im just popping in to own my bad behavior yesterday evening. Why I thought I could eat butter cake and homemade vanilla ice cream is beyond me. But for only the 3rd or 4th since surgery, I dumped. Hard. Hopefully it was painful enough to put me back on track.
Hoping to do a better job today.
