T Stands for Cold Stone

Welcome to the  T-Party hosted by Elizabeth  every Tuesday. This will be a quick post this week, as I have an early therapy appointment today. So Off we go..................The grands......Hannah and Megan went with us to the new house to check on things Sunday afternoon.  Of course they know how to work ole Papa and suggested ice cream!  They decided on Cold Stone for a change. It is located in a shopping center.........I couldn't resist this shot of them walking . This is the entrance......I finally remembered to take a photo of where we were. Papa and the girls.....We all chose something different.  They have all kinds of flavored ice cream bases, that they add all kinds of goodies to.  Mine was a sweet cream ice cream with brownie, chocolate and caramel syrup and pecans.  It was so good....and so sweet!  Most places will give you a free glass of water, but not here......they want you to buy bottled water...... Since the price for the bottled water w

T-Stands for a busy week.

T-day has rolled around for another week of seeing tasty drink and food, hostess Elizabeth always has the honor of this weekly tradition. To start this blog a-roll-n, here is my desk this morning, same mug, but fresh coffee.  I finally got to see the desk top again after weeks of piling stuff on it.  I had almost finished when I remembered to take a picture. Mid-week Bob and I went to Pieology for pizza.  I know this is a chain pizza place, but I don't know how many of you might know about it.  There were too many people to take more pictures than our pizzas. It is set up like a Subway sandwich shop.  You start with the type of dough you want, then sauces, then toppings, right on down the line.  Each is an individual pizza, but I have yet to eat the whole thing.  I always get the cauliflower crust , Alfredo sauce, mozzarella cheese then pile on the veggies and chicken.  Bob goes more traditional......crust, house red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, Canadian bacon.

T Stands for the Last of the Holidays

Welcome back to another T-Day post......this makes two in a row WOOT! WOOT!  As the post title suggests, we have finally finished with our family holidays.  More about that to come.......  But first I wanted to share my new coffee cup. Today it has coffee with a sweet creamer in it.  I bought this at a craft fair, before Christmas, before I was driving more than a mile from home.  A friend was kind enough to pick me up and take me with her to a craft fair where her daughter had a booth.  On the way out the door I stopped to admire the hand-thrown stoneware on a table.  The artist was there and we had a great conversation, all the while I couldn't put this cup I finally bought it. LOL!  It is about 4 times what I would normally pay for a coffee cup, but I'm in love with it and I DO believe in supporting local artists.  Once I get the cup warmed up it keeps my coffee hot a lot longer.......I just love hand-thrown stoneware.  I guess because I was never very

Foggy Friday

It's a cold and foggy morning here, so gloomy! The youngest part of our family will be here this evening, for the weekend  and here I am proCRAFTinating instead of getting on with my day. Since I'm here I thought I'd share my first valentine cards. This little guy has been with me for YEARS, I just love him, I wish he had a matching die, but he came along long before dies were so popular.  Which means he has to be cut out by hand, but he is a simple shape so it goes quickly. SHOULDER UPDATE I've been to two physical therapy session and things are going good, and I am starting to feel a big difference in movement already. By the evenings the discomfort and some pain comes back, but ice packs have become my best friends. This day is going to wooooosh by, so I am going to get dressed and get on with getting ready.  There are extra beds to be made up ( well, change the sheets and fix up the air mattress), then there is a badly needed trip to buy gro

T Stands for First Post this Year

SURPRISE! and Hello everyone popping in from Elizabeth's  Tuesday's T-Party  , and any other passer-bys. It definitely has been a long while since I attended the weekly T-day parties.  I have lurked about and looked through the window many times, but never left any messages since I have not post to this blog.  I'm thrilled to see so many still attending the parties. As custom states this should be a drink or food based posted, and since I remembered to start this post earlier than Monday evening!! I am indulging is a glass of wine as I bang away on the keys of my laptop. DISASTER STRIKES: I fell Labor Day weekend and ended up with a torn muscle in my right shoulder, but didn't know it until the end of October when the pain wouldn't go away. I went to orthopedic Dr., got x-rays, then a MRI of soft was set for November 20th.......just before Thanksgiving.  Even though I was in a sling, we went to San Diego for that holi
