Saturdays Scribbles

What a difference a few days make. Last Monday it was 99 degrees with a dew point of 72.  Ugh.....hot and humid.  Yesterday a mere 4 days later our high was 69 with a dew point in the 40's.  It felt cold enough I was wearing a hoodie in the house.  Okay...okay.....I was not feeling so well, but it was cold!  Iowa is in a drought, Colorado is flooding, and fires are raging in Northern California.  The weather is chaotic and confusing.

Speaking of chaotic and confusing, that's how I feel about the symptoms I have been fighting this week.  A major ramping up of pain has me taking deep breathes and saying "Lord have mercy, this has got to go!"  I have managed to walk 1 to 1.5 miles most days, but yesterday after walking the  pain was so bad it left me nauseated and trying to harness my emotions.  This week I had to cut off and hem up two pair of pants for myself.  Seriously, why in the world is everything made for tall people!!!  And as long as I am complaining...........why, when you are already overweight, are the clothes for plus sizes made with large prints!  The larger the person the larger the print?  What is up with that?!?!  I am still cooking, helping out at home, and shopping once in awhile.  I do enjoy baking the most.  Problem is, then I eat it!  And now we are back full circle to the plus size drama.

Joel kept busy writing for the book,  a sermon for tomorrow, and also cutting and putting new trim around three windows in the house.  I washed the curtains for two of the windows, but now need to iron and rehang them.  Our guest room is nearly complete~just need a shade for the window.

My laptop is still not working.  After several hours of technical support, a change of IP addresses, and a change of Internet speeds, it only seems to connect when it feels like it!! Ugh. Guess we will take in in again and see if they can find anything.

I am looking forward to the fall TV season openers, but was disappointed to hear that NCIS is losing Cote de Pablo who plays the character Zeva David. She has been a powerful asset to the cast.  No movies this week, just a  little TV, but I did read a kindle book by Diane Davidson who writes the Goldy Schultz mysteries.  What have you been reading?

Not much scribbling going on in my little brain today.................
Until next time..........

Sorry the pain is so bad these days. I hope it eases ASAP. Good to hear that you are still able to walk, though. I tried recently and it sent me into a terrible crash. Baking, yum! I LOVE looking up recipes and trying them.

WOW, you are a busy, busy lady. HOPE you feel much better soon. I can totally relate to the plus size comments...and my hubby LOVES for me to back sweet stuff....which, I do not need, but can't stay out of!! :( Endless, crazy circle of being overweight!!!

I'm so sorry about your pain, Renee. But I so admire the fact that you're still walking. May the Lord calm the pain, and heal you quickly.

I've been reading some mysteries lately - set in Victorian times. One was in early New York. I love the history that is brought into the plot - and of course, I'm a huge mystery fan - so it's all good!

GOD BLESS!

So you enjoy baking too, upnorth! It is hard not to eat it though....sigh....

Renee said...

It is an endless circle isn't it Debbie. Thanks for coming by...

My sister enjoys the Victorian age mysteries too! I read a lot of mysteries but am careful about which ones or I get spooked myself! Ha... Thanks for coming by Sharon.
