Out and about a little today...


  

It was almost balmy at 39 degrees today.  I got all excited and got showered and dressed and went out into the world.   It was pretty exciting out there, I have to tell you.  lol


I found the Irishman 2 very nice pairs of jeans at the Goodwill for 4 dollars apiece. They look almost new. They are  for work pants, and  the way he goes through them it's a blessing I am able to find them.  I also picked up 2 books for me to read, as I have finished the last 4 I got. (By the way...I read Clive Cussler's Arctic Drift.  I really like the movies I have seen made from his books (Sahara) and I really like his writing style.) These new ones  are a book by a Canadian writer named Anne Marie MacDonald called Fall On Your Knees  and another one called The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield, a British author. I am looking forward to reading them both, but first I have to read a book loaned to me today by a new friend called Mutant Message Down Under.  Not sure what it is, except that it had a powerful impact on my friend.   I'll read it quickly and get it back to her.


  I bought a Jack LaLane juicer today, barely used, for 50 bucks.  A deal!  Looked them up and they retail for around $199.00.   I look forward to getting back to juicing.  I felt really good this summer, replacing 1 or 2 meals a day with juice. AND I lost over 25 pounds. (Don't worry though...I found most of  it again).  sigh...



Twisted my knee, slipping on ice getting out of the car this afternoon. It's not too swollen and hurts a little. I don't think it's anything serious. Achy...and I took some Aleve.  We'll see how it feels tomorrow.



 Thankfully, we have no plans for this weekend, save the District meeting on Sunday afternoon.  Otherwise, it's nothing but R&R.  I am looking forward to some time at home with the Irishman.  And the menagerie, of course.


Alrighty. I am off to bed. Didn't get there last night until almost 3:30 AM...that is NOT happening tonight!!


Oh...Sandman....here I come......




Namaste.

Thank you for your post and your comments, you give me more encouragement than I can give myself. Well, most of the time.

:) God be with you and your knee.

That picture is beautiful and reminds me of the smell of spring in early dawn as the snow begins to melt into fog and the birds are waking and the feeling of that moment...

WOW, that is spiritual!

I have had a couple juicers and I liked the finished product and disliked the taking apart and cleaning each time I used it. I guess there just isn't any way to get the good juice without having to do that huh. One of my favorites was to drink carrot,apple,parsley drinks. To me, that is an awesome combo. I will be waiting to hear more how your juicing experience is this time around.

I read Mutant Message twice, and it was really good. I'd be interested to know what you think of it, I haven't thought of it in a long time... be careful with that knee, sometimes taking Aleve will allow you to overdo it unless you're careful.

OMG...Mutant Message Down Under is one of the most incredible books I've read too...I read it with Celestine Prophecy, and CIM too... I loved it!

Hope you're knees is feeling better and hope you're doing well and got some rest!!!
