    Tonight put in an Amazon order. Getting Mr x a snack box of chips, cookies etc. He likes those. Getting more kpods for me. Right now I have Amazon brand and Peet's. No flavor. But I'm getting one that has lots of flavors. I've had it before. Blueberry, maple etc.

    It was 51• on our walk. Rather frosty. I knew it. The two houses had free stuff out. But it was the dregs. Some stuff was dirty even. I did pick up a tiny, palm size light blue Bible. Very cute. Like my poor eyes want to read tiny print. But it's a good reference. I haven't been listening to church radio. I was really into it for awhile. But I'm liking the various stories on Mind Webs. A sci fi old radio show.

    Well I feel a lil better. More stuff for Mr x. I was looking up bath salts or bath bombs. But nothing was looking good. It's so tiresome vetting.

    Well we're off on another march around the hood tomorrow. I tested my lunch of cheese and deli and I get a very low ch number. Tho this isn't fun. Not being able to eat much at all. My breakfast is fuel so I can workout, my carb less lunch tides me over till din. Din was pretty skimpy. Mr x really cutting back on my feed. On a minuscule bed of brown rice. Like a couple Ts. Then my ensure. It's necessary, I guess. I'm still waiting on eye results. Got to keep ch low. But it's not fun. I can't eat anything fun. I used to sit here at night and snack on stuff. Now nothing. Maybe I'll stabilize one day and can add back a snack or two. I don't remember when I last had pie, ice cream.

    We did a long walk today. 1.5 hr. But stopped at 4 lil libraries so time out for that. I picked up a book and Mr x got a DVD. Lil Miss sunshine, I believe.

    It was a gray, cold day. Long leggings, 3/4 top, vest, plus arm warmers. Right now I have a hand warmer opened. I'll bring it along on walk if it's still going.

    I've started to panic at how close Xmas is. I've done nothing, until today. I just ordered from the Vermont store. Got Mr x a triple liquor fruitcake, fruit candy slices, and me neopolitan candy. It has three flavors. Chocolate, strawberry, coconut.

    My usual fruitcake was claxton. But they raised their prices. So I was looking around. This new one comes in a tin. The other one just wrapped up.

    I need to put in some Amazon orders. I haven't been cause we go out doing workouts alot. You have to be home when package comes. Luckily they give you a heads up.

    We saw two garage sales today. I didn't stop. But we'll go by there again tomorrow. A lot of time stuff is out free. And then I would look. I crave books and clothes. But I don't need clothes. I have this armload that was on the floor. I put it on the bed. Then I grabbed it and threw it in a bin. Too many clothes!

    I forgot to mention that yesterday I fed Wally for 5.5 hrs.

    I'm going to hit it. I really overworked my eyes looking at the whole Vermont catalog ol. Seems a very sincere family business. It's the Orton family. Father and 3 strapping boys. Men. They do family pic. But where are the women? He must've had a wife. The boys could be 40. They have no mate? Kids? Am I going to have to look this up?

    At least I have the fruitcake and candy. I'll look for more stuff for Mr x. But now I better hit it.

    I'm off track, of course. Yesterday Mr x got his crown and filling. I did odds n ends and got stuff ready for eye appt today.

    Was awake from 4. Up before 6. We left at 8. I didn't forget anything. I painted my nails, put on silver hoops. Wore a print long tunic over black leggings with jean jac. It was cold. Appt was quick. Just camera shot. On the way back saw a sporting's store with boarded up windows. Then saw 3 cop cars. Highly unusual. Cops have become a joke here. They don't exist. We're on our own.

    Then my HS site where I blog n post pics changed format. A bunch of my pics disappeared. I'll have to resend them. I think I know what they did. At first the pics you could post on opening page was unlimited. Then they changed it to 20. Now I think it's 10. My pics weren't appearing. You know how pics sometimes need time to appear. But I tried it on different devices and saw the same empty spots. I sent the site a comment. I don't know if I'll renew. I hate being jerked around. I hate them having all the cards. We'll see.

    Well got to hit it. Got to get back on track with the exercise. When Mr x was driving, I tried to see and the same horrible double vision remains.

    Today I scanned my folks wedding album. I'll give it to bro next time I see him. It's this huge, heavy thing. They had a traditional wedding. Many tiered cake, 200 guests. I wonder what flavor the cake was.

    We had a great 70 min scoot. Temp was great. I avoided the millions of cracks and bumps in the sidewalk. I think I'm going to put some first aid kit together. One never knows. But that's why I go pretty slow. Plus the sun on certain streets is right in my eyes and there's no visor on a helmet.

    No workout tomorrow cause Mr x gets crown replaced plus a filling. I'll have to get ready for my eye appt the next day. Pick my outfit, do my nails.

    I get tired having to charge my phones up all the time. I have 3 main phones. With different features. When you use one as a hotspot, power drains quickly.

    For lunch today I decided to try no carb, practically. I had 3 slices cheese and kippers. Also a decafe with chocolate almond milk and creamer. Lil carb there. And ch was reg low. So basically I don't need carbs!

    I noticed they were separating the cheese slices with half a square of paper. Basically, a tab. And on the almond milk the twist top is half the size. And with my ensure cases they've cut down on box strength. When you pull it open, the side opens up. Cheapness abounds. Fruitcake prices have risen. Mr x is going to want it.

    I slogged today and did the reg route. It was very pleasant temp. I saw a gal go by in a crop top even. I was wearing a long crop. Oh, we actually saw a guy on a scooter walking his dog.

    I'm reading a book by Henry Winkler. Kid book about 5th grade and playing ping pong. It's good. Right off, it's readable.

    Today I used up the last of my teeth whitening strips. I'm trying to use stuff down. And I have 3 nail polishes left. I was putting some stuff away that is in the DR. I don't get much done on an exercise day.

    Soon to hit it. Today a big truck came to remove the staging furniture from the house of ill repute. Next will be moving vans I suppose. Other side nabe put up his customary pale blue house lights.

    Had another pleasant walk. It fooled me again and was quite warm. I wore sleeveless lime top and lime shorts. Popped in green earrings. Hit three book bins. Brought back a kids book.

    Today for lunch had only an ensure. No chips. Worked well. Then I had din and some chips. If my Ch is high tom, I'll give up the chips. I don't want to ban too much stuff. Mr x should be able to eat his snacks. But ice cream and cookies were banned. I can't be around ice cream. I can down the pint, Pint, of ice cream before you can say Winchester cathedral. I think I even had a qt once.

    There's this gal on Twitter that posts doughnuts. Really fancy ones. I like to look at them. I can remember how they taste. They don't make me want to get one either.

    Oh! Mr x finished the ramp. He hasn't assembled it yet but the artwork is done. It's very attractive. Pastel colours. He drew some pics of a bear, sun, and tree. He made stencils of them. Offhand I can't picture it completely since I just saw it once. I want to take a pic so I can study it. Then I'll have to use it!

    Had a good scoot. Wore sleeveless and shorts. Mr x is building me this ramp to slog on. He's painting it. It's white and he decorated the border. He's doing the inside soon. I'm expecting something spectacular as he is very creative. He's using bright pastel colours.

    So got another msg from sue girl. We're writing every day. She said she really enjoys our chats. Here's a wild one. She can trace her history back to the 17th century. Her relative pronounced sentence on Charles I. Wow. Makes history come alive. She also mentioned this restaurant I'd heard about. She confirms it has this fabulous asparagus soup.

    Oh! I renewed Mr X's Tracfone for another year. Had prob inputting my credit card. What should've taken 5 min took much longer. I found two coupons. 800 min or $15 off. I went with the discount. Mr x has min up the yin Yang. Plus the renewal added 20 more hrs.

    It's early but I'm beat. I tested a meal of only pbj compared to yesterday's pbj plus chips. It's the chips. They are evil. I also read that it is good to experience some hunger before meals. It said bad cells are thus consumed. Bad disease cells. There is that whole fasting scene. I can't do that anymore tho. I wouldn't be able to exercise.

    Tomorrow sup to be warm again. I'm planning a long walk. Oh, I finished one of my mildewed books and dumped it. Onward!

    Had a pleasant slog. I wasn't feeling the love but I needed to go. Plus it was really warm. Up to 65• I was able to wear shorts. And I was able to do my reg route, the one I had started to bonk on in the summer.

    Sue girl sent me a link to the junior college I went to. She had gotten some college themed Sox for free. I didn't see any offer of sox. And really, Sox are the last thing I need. I am drowning in Sox.

    I have so many Sox they need to go in different bags. I have running, peds, winter fuzzys, thin colorful ones, thicker colorful ones.

    She sent me a pic of her cat. She sent me personal info about herself n husband related to the alumni site. But she hasn't shown me a pic of herself. Of course I'm not going to ask, but I do wonder. Last time I talked to her was 4th grade. She was at my HS but we didn't connect any longer. She wasn't in my classes. I saw a pic of her in HS. She resembled her 4th grade pic. But what does she look like now. I do wonder.

    Think I'll pop an ensure then toddle off. It's sup to be even warmer tom and I have a scoot day planned.

    I had a pleasant Inn day. Mr x made his Fri omelet. Later I had some of the chips I was craving last night. I did desky. Really clearing things up. I had a statement that had some questions on it. I had forgotten to post the bill to my checkbook. There are so many steps. Anyway, it's nice when it works out. Now I have just one more set of statements.

    I didn't get to renewing Mr xs TracFone tho. Or pulling out the rewards rebate from his credit card. Next time. Read a mag. Those are piling up. And if gf comes next mo she may bring more. She said she's working on her cards. Bit of an early bird!

    It was black Friday but I was busy doing desky. Later checked some stuff out. I saw a beautiful pink suede motorcycle jacket with a huge fur collar. I would look good in that but where would I wear it? And I really don't want more clothes.

    Maybe I'll read some now.

    Happy Thanksgiving, lady Diana! And you, too, Izzy! I see cap on Twitter. It's 9 p.m. And I'm all tucked in. But 9 is really 10, I explain to bro.

    I took Mr x on an 80 min tramp thru the hood. My goal was to seek out the delicious holiday cooking smells. Strangely, I only smelled twice. One was a nearby KFC, the other I smelled some sage turkey spice. I actually backpedaled for a second whiff.

    I really wanted some chips tonight but I'm testing diet n exercise. So just had my customary ensure nightcap.

    Suddenly tonight my ankle is pinging. But we only walked! And I had it wrapped. Maybe I better hold off on the slog. It's lucky I can switch to different exercises. Depending on weather, sore ankles, knees etc. Hardly saw any cars while walking.

    Well I'm beat. GF wrote back again. I did em my cuz. And two other pals. Still owe two more ems.

    Time for some radio shows now.

amazing as it sounds, i passed the dmv vision test. i was quite apprehensive in days leading up to it. every nite religiously doing the eye exercises. straining, straining to see, imagine, the dinky little letters. when it came time to test, i didnt even falter! i guess i could see the shapes good enough to recognize. mr x came with me. we had a 2.5 hour wait. he started grumbling part way thru the wait.

other day we were at macs. tried their new ice mocha. yum!

then yesterday hung out with bro for 5.5 hrs. he had these dumb rebate cards to redeem and he didnt need anything. so we went to walgreens, 2 cvs, and a tjs. i caught up on my shopping. we hit a macs and i tried the caramel macchiato. even better than the mocha. we got along very well. we had been estranged a long time. but now i suppose i will eventually move closer to him. he lives in san jose. not a place id like to be. maybe i can move nearby on the coast. would like some fog weather.

so i passed my big hurdle. can relax now and get back to normal. have to hire a drywall guy.

just finished a great read. about uber rich ladies and the scam perpetrated against them. a good frothy read. hey, its fall i believe! got bottle of pumpkin spice latte by starbucks. so curious to taste it.

welcome to fall! time to bring out the sweaters.

finally got back here. we had a plumbing event. on labor day mr x noticed water running off front lawn. a water main had broke. a small 2" gush was gushing out. mr x called water company who turned off water. then i called our go to plumber. a solution was to replace pipe to house. however id been wanting to replace the pipes one day. we had no hot water at bathroom sink and cold faucet was dribbling out. i knew it was a matter of time. then. we didnt have hot or warm water in washer. only cold. thats why my wash would take hours. so i decided to kill all birds with one stone. i replaced all pipes with copper. it took a total of 5 days. we had no water for 3 days. first day we used wipey dypes. 2nd day mr x warmed water jugs in sun and we bathed with a gallon of water. i helped mr x wash his hair on back lawn. i viewed the experience like camping. its doable, but im not keen on it. 3 guys were here. all spoke spanish. so i decided to learn spanish on phone app. itd be nice to be able to converse with them.

im doing eye exercises. plan on taking vision test next week. its better not doing close work, which ive done my whole life. reading way too much. better to look at scenery. i think ill continue the eye exercises.

we had really hot temps, then other day first rain of the year! it began with a thousand lightening strikes. scary, and weird for this area. it started brush fire couple towns over. also monsciour ugly was caught on film sliding his grotesquely ugly body under a residents fence. # the outrage

id been watching lovely old films, then the plumbing debacle. i have to bring in a drywall guy to patch up the holes the plumber left. already found my guy thru yelp.

back to school time, but kids already back. when did that start? and no telethon with jerry lewis. he really wanted to hit 100.

its been super hot here. sf broke record. something like 106. we were 107. i was taking 3 showers a day. would sit outside at nite for air, started watching my dvd player. watched, british intelligence, with boris karloff. such an intimidating man. it was a ww1 flick in blk/wh. got bit by mosquitos. its the gift that keeps on giving. next nite sprayed off on.

got couple more weeks for eye exercises then have to take dmv vision test. strangely enough, the pinhole glasses im using seem to help. before i couldnt see without glasses without closing an eye. now im able to read my phone without glasses. of course, i return to glasses asap.

the smoke from oregon and calif fires drifted down here. could smell it slightly. today its a strange totally overcast day, but warm.

your friendly, pink weather girl.

hi izzy! i know what you mean. its fun to read new blogs. kind of like toothpaste. if nothing to read, ill read the tube. tube tops. i thought those were the dumbest things. then my wing went out once and i couldnt finagle a bra. so had to get the tubes. so easy to put on. i have them in colors, of course. fuchsia, lime, orange.

im writing on lappy, my laptop. too onerous to text on my phone.

its been a long, hot summer. i look forward to fall temps when i can don my beloved denim jackets.

izzy, that was interesting telling of what a nuclear stress test is. what is the nuclear part? the dye? it sounds so high tech. nuclear. do you glow now:)

i need to clean my fans. some arent openable. need some kind of thin bristle brush.

a few cities over madame ugly and her spawn were spotted. search partys are out since they came down where schools are. i noticed their looks didnt improve over the summer.

did i mention mr x found a dead rat on back lawn. thankfully he disposed of it. he said it was 17" with tail. # ick

see you in september!

my newest project is trying to buy glasses ol.

last nights movie was a doris day musical. she can really dance. and tap. that is an odd dance move. the guy was doing it on a staircase. itd be kind of neat to suddenly break into a tap dance.

then i started a cary grant and rosallnd russell movie.

i made up 5 packs of indonesian ramen. made oodles of noodles. heard ramen is hot commodity in prisons. ramen wth an egg on top. # breakfast is served

i should try on my cargo shorts again. itll probably be another year till i can wear them. i sure love the pockets. i used to be a tomboy back in my tomcat days. but i grew out of it. i get more favorable responses when i dress ladylike.

We had to replace the water pipe to our house, years ago, when we had our own house. BF and a friend did the work.
A root from a tree had punctured the pipe...so the tree was felled.
The lawn never recovered from the line that had to be dug into it to access the pipe.

I bet its nice to have working water again!

OMG, the smoke from the fires drifted into Colorado so thick that it allowed one to look directly at the sun without seeing spots when looking away!
We could barely make out the shapes of the mountains through the heavy smoke.
When the sun had set and the moon had risen, the moon looked much like the sun had looked...only the sky was dark!
There was also a fire near Steamboat Springs, Colorado that grew from 2 acres to 419 acres in just a few hours...that also contributed to our smoky air.
The elderly and people with health issues are being advised to stay indoors with the doors and windows closed.
Its really kinda scary to see that much smoke in the air!

I'm glad to hear that the eye exercises and the pinhole glasses are working for you! ...I should try something like that since my aging eyes are failing fast...but I am lazy lately...maybe at another time.
