Sunny Monday

There is a strange phenomenon in the sky today. The sun! Yippee! No rain predicted for a few days so the men are here spraying my lawns with some toxic waste that will kill the dandelions and probably everything else in it's path but unfortunately if I don't spray them the neighbors will egg my house. I'm even having some of my pasture done as the horses won't be here for awhile so it will have time to sink in and not affect them. They LOVE the grass on the lawns as it is really lush and green where the pasture grass doesn't get as lush. Going to have some pasture mix hydroseeding done in spots that needs to be perked up. I block off parts of my pasture so that they don't eat the whole thing down in the first week and then I rotate it so there's always some good grazing for them. Not that they need it, they all are too fat. :)

Went to the foot doctor this morning to see what he could do for me. With the bum knee I'm putting way too much extra work on the foot so have stirred things up a bit. Now, I really don't like it when doctors how old are you now??????? So here I am with a contraption on my foot to help support it so I guess there will be no cute strappy sandals in my near future! :(

Back again:

Just mowed for an hour or so on my big riding mower. It was so cold I had on THREE sweatshirts over my blouse! Yikes, the sun may be out but the wind is cold. It's only in the 40's in northern Maine today. Guess I won't be setting out any new plants this week.

As I said in my Friday post I didn't win the Organization Competition. sob...sob...I'm still crying. :( I really want Laura to have another one so that I will get another room done. There's nothing like a little competition to get one going on something that you have been putting off. I still haven't tackled the dreaded walk in closet......... I just know what a mess it's going to be when I take everything out of that closet and then have to go through everything and THEN put it back. I just don't have the energy, I'll use my bum knee for an excuse.

In a few days I'm going to be having a new look. We all need a makeover once in awhile and I have been using the generic look so REALLY needed to spruce things up a bit. Susie over at Bluebird Designs is working on my 'look' and from what I have seen so far it's pretty nice! Can't wait!

I've had TWO bum knees for so long now, I'm used to it... more or less. AND I have to wear inserts or the foot pain gets to me. Getting old isn't for sissies, but it beats the alternative.

bad knees are no fun I am sure! I pray you have a quick recovery!

Sun? Yippee! We have sun too!!!! a little warmer here maybe high 60's, still coller then I like I am hoping tomorrows forecast is right and is in the 80's!!!!

You can always do the tackle tuesday! It is inspiring enough for me! I cleaned a room and many cupboards etc out! Tomorrow I will display my work:)

I love the picture of your horse...looks like the young boys today with their hair in their eyes!
I have a bum knee out on me sometimes...I'm basically falling apart!

I know what you mean about the doctor comment. I really hate, "For someone your age. . ."I've been hearing that one from one doctor since I was forty. He's also a friend and I think he just does it to see the look on my face!

I'm getting a makeover from Susie also. I have not seen mine yet, but I expect to any day now. You must be in line ahead of me. I'll be watching for yours soon!

Oooh can't wait to see your new look:-) Susie does such beautiful work...wish I had her know how! lol Awww sorry you didn't win the Organization challenge...I still say you should have won:-) We're supposed to be getting some heat for the next few days...yipppeeee! If you've tried to email me again, I haven't gotten it and I can't see your email addy on your blog so...I'll post the recipe for the Red Lobster cheese biscuits tomorrow on my blog:-) xoxo

getting old isnt any fun...

beautiful pony photo, is it one of your ponies?

I really need to put up Scooter at night, he is getting so fat it is going to flare up his arthritis.

It seems bad knees are a function of the aging process...I'm right there with you. Anti-inflammatory drugs have become my daily friend as I try and ward off the pain and discomfort that comes with old age. Bah!

Susie is a busy Bluebird lady. She did my daughter's site and it is lovely. My daughter did mine, and I am happy with it and don't have to pay! But I can't wait to see your new look.

Sorry about the physical junk - this aging thing is the pits sometimes!
