Nutella versus Doctor Atkins

Nutella versus Doctor Atkins

Post-Holiday snacks and goodies are still in the house… I’m doing my very best to motor through all of it… …..you know, the stuff that you normally pass by in the grocery store…….but as stocking-stuffers……. …..They Are Just Perfect!   Right now the cupboard is teeming with little cans of Vienna sausages, and sardines in hot sauce, and Digestives, and jerky, and Nutella (the generic type)…….lots & lots of Nutella… My younger daughter just walked by with a smear of…

Fun With Ducks…….

Fun With Ducks…….

Right now…..I should be doing paperwork to renew my National Athletic Training license before December 31st……. Procrastinate much?????????? But honestly…….I’ve been attempting to do that all day long…….with very little success……. I’ve put out a loud/pathetic wail to my older daughter to help me with all of this necessary cyber-garbage……. …….I’ve got scraps of paper and xeroxed certificates floating all over this house…….and if DaVinci pee’d on them sometime throughout the year…….who knows what I did with them…….?… …..I sure…

Joint Check

Joint Check

Let’s cut to the skinny… All four artificial joints are still fine and in good order and stuck where they should be… …..and I don’t have to go back for another three years…….if everything stays copasetic…….(HA!) And that’s just great. But like I said…….I don’t like medical tests and appointments and the related-whatnots…   ~~~~~Here’s an example of what had to occur prior to today’s appointment~~~~~ …….mouths need feeding before anything else can occur on any given day……. …….no actually,…

Fasted Bloodwork

Fasted Bloodwork

I’m a complainer… I’m a procrastinator… Sometimes I’d prefer to keep my head in the sand and not know what’s going on… And sometimes I have to pull up my big girl panties and act like an adult…………. I don’t like tests on my body… The older I get…….the more tests I need… My warranty is winding down… I don’t mind the actual tests……….it’s fitting them into my day. So many steps have to happen… It’s a pain in the…………………neck….

Worming The Cats

Worming The Cats

Parasites happen. It’s disgusting…..but true. They are more places than what we realize……. …….and sometimes they’re beneficial.   But, my kitty-kat-ums all needed worming………… …….just don’t ask me how I know…….yuck……. Good animal husbandry means you have to keep up with regular wormings of everybody. ………….but, I HATE worming the cats… …they hurt me……. Horses are easy to worm. Some of them even like it…….we’ve had a couple in the past who would chase you down if they saw the…

Upon Reflection

Upon Reflection

  I just re-read my last two posts. I try to do that for editing and changing hard to read sentences.   My last few posts sure do make country life and country chores look hard…..and dangerous…..and arduous…..(isn’t that the same as hard?). Or…..maybe it’s just me.   I have tendencies to get in trouble with power tools……………..just ask my older daughter’s opinion of my use of cutting wheels on angle grinders… Not pretty……………   …….maybe it’s not just me……….

Concussed & Other Safety Issues

Concussed & Other Safety Issues

      I think I’m concussed…     Although, I probably shouldn’t be the one to ask… I had Paulo check my pupils with a flashlight for weird dilations…     I refused to get stitches……………I didn’t want a patch shaved on my head…   Tools for the rural lifestyle are not the petite, delicate gardening tools you can easily find in the outdoor section of Walmart. You have to seek them out at specialty farm stores and catalogs……
