So, it is the last Day of the Month and starting a new Blog Page tomorrow and a new Blog Video too
That sure keeps me busy when things get boring around here, adding Photos most every Day to the Video
So what's for the Day? A peek at the Weather... Been pretty much the same-o for the last few Days
Humm... And again today but cloudy and a little cooler, 47 to start, 58 later, Oh well
Morning Computer stuff done, I dived into that new Video, got the Intro done by 8 a.m. and all's well
Then back to the Computer to play with Photos, Blogs and Videos and a new Web Page for my Video Blogs
Now you don't have to go to Vimeo to see them, they have their own Page, soon all 12 wil be on there
~ Pay Day... Tomorrow! ~
On to something else to do... Only Two Days left in October, time to work on a Finale for my October Blog Video
Well Halloween ends the Month, how about some Ghost Story Night stuff? Some Pumpkins and Spooks
Started on that with an old Nature Sanctuary Video, well, only 5 years old
Worked on that a while, got one scene about finished, time for a Trip to the Price Chopper
Out of Wine again, and low on Apple Juice, who's drinking all that Wine lately anyway?
Got my goodies and headed back, time for Breakfast and a News catch up then back to the Videos
Took a couple scenes of my sad Fall Garden out front, then a hike out back for Video of the Back Gardens
That will make a good close for October... Only need whatever Photos I might get on Wednesday to finish
Decided to just get a couple Photos of the Kitchen Gardens and went ahead to finish that October Video
Then worked steady on it, got the Finale like I wanted, and added kind of a cute surpise at the end
Set it to render and upload and then back to the Kitchen to cook up my Bacon, both packs
That took a while, only six slices would fit in the Dish at a Time so that took Four trips to the Oven
Finished about 5 p.m. Time for another Glass of Wine, some TV and wait for Dinner of whatever later
Yes Ma'am, a busy day most all Day, some Dinner and off again to the Land of Dreams
~ One Day to Pay Day... Hoo Ray! ~
7 a.m. and Apple Juice, Coffee, Bank, Facebook, Email, Puzzle, Sunday Blog all done, now what?
Looks like another long, long and long Day ahead, now what? More Blog Pages redos?
9:15 a.m. and that's enough of that for the moment, Ten more blog Pages revised
And still easier all the time, getting close to my current style of Blogs, so there too
But even the later ones have a mistake or a photo or Video missing that I overlooked
Anyway, no Breakfast yes and I need to slip into the shower, Nope! Better not say SLIP!
That done and on with the Day and the exciting Adventures in store, like heading to the Fast Stop
Some chat with Navru, some chat with his Customers, a fun Twenty Minutes or so, got my Lottos and headed back
And back to scratch off NOTHING and have a late Breakfast (ot early lunch) and on with the Editing
I did take a run out back just to check things, and saw two dinky Pumpkin Blooms
I thought we were all through with that, got a Photo and headed back in for whatever
Then saw I was all out of Paper Towels and needed some so back to the Price Chopper
Thought of getting something new for Dinner too, got my Towels and then back to the Meat counter
Saw some nice looking sliced Pork Shoulder and on sale, got a six pack of that and headed home
And then, some Business, My last Bill for DirecTV from AT@T was much higher than usual
So I got online to check on why, Clicked on 'Chat', got connected to a real nice Rep, name was Joseph
Best person I ever talked to at AT@T, checked on my case, gave all the Info, a Discount I had ran out
So he went through all the ways he could find to get my Bill lowered, said he found several options
And then I checked out of that pleasant Chat and hoping to see a much better Bill, stay Tuned for results
Also, stay away from Time Warner and Spectrum, worst TV Service I ever had... So there too!
Coasting on into the Afternoon, started on the Pork, into the Big Pyrex dish and into the Oven to roast
And stuck a Potato in the Oven too to bake for Dinner later, all set, let the Roast begin
Back to the Computer, out to turn the Roast now and then, then all done set aside to Cool
On to th rest of the Afternoon and Evening, a hunk of Pork, baked Tater and Green Beans for dinner
An old Movie and then a Concert Finale and off to dream of Tomorrow
~ Tuesday already Tomorrow? ~
Had a little hand discomfort early in the Night, just took off the Splint and then had a good Night
Seems the Finger is healing quite a bit now, eager to get it well and close to normal again
So far it has been a real pain in the uhhhhh... Finger... So what't the next Doctor event on the way?
OK, Morning stuff all done, bored already what to do today anyway?
Well some Breakfast, and some boredom and back to the HTML Editor and old Pages, many many
Then a Break to run to the Price Chopper for some Milk (and Lottos), got that and headed back
Put the Milk in the Fridge and then back to the old Pages again and then most all afternoon
And got a lot of them updated, maybe close to Twenty or so and then BORED with that
Took a break to set out some Dinner for later, poured a Glass of Vino and then just coasted the rest of the Day
And that is just what I did, what an long long uneventful Day, but kept busy
And checked out early, let's go try a brand new Monday
~ On the Way to Monday Again ~
No Finger pain all night but started to ache when I took the Splint off in the Morning
So a couple Aspirin, mixed my Juice, poured my Coffee and on to the Morning routine
Weather? Looks the same as Friday, 44 to start at 6:30 a.m. and heading to 70 Degrees, that sounds good
Sunny too, that's usually good news, so maybe on to another good Day>
Morning stuff done, then what? Update some more old Blog Pages? Tried that, did Four More
And easier to do now, far less to change as the pages get more like my present ones
Mostly now it seems just replace a missing Video here and there, change a background on some
And Hoooo Hummmmm.... Six done, bored with that at 10 a.m. sure need something else to do on this boring Morning
I headed to the Price Chopper for my Daily Dose of Lottos, splurged on buying Eight Tickets
Picked up another couple Items and headed home to scratch off only Two Winners for $25
Then back to the HTML Editor for more Blog Page updates
Kept at that for most of the Afternoon, got a lot of Pages updated then timefor a wind down
But first, those Two Jalapeno Peppers in the Pot gettng some Size, no use for them right away
So I decided to pickle them for the next time I need a Jalapeno for something picante
Mixed up some Brine, let it simmer a while, in with the two lonely Peppers for a few Minutes
Then the Peppers in a Jar, the Brine over the Peppers and Voila, pickled Jalapeno Peppers!
All that trouble fot two Pewppers? Well I can save that Brine for later
And as more Peppers get to size then I can Pickle them one or twomore at a time
And that was all of Saturday except Dinner and a Movie and a Concert>
~ And nothing to write Home About on Saturday ~
So what's for the Day? Again not a clue, just hit the Fast Stop for my Fortune, had two good Days at that
After that then just coast through another Day... Hoping this hand will stop hurting sometime
I thought with the stitches out I would have a better night, and did for most of it, then woke up
Maybe that's when the Tylenol wore off, shudda got up for more but stuck it out until 5 a.m.
Anyway, on with the Day, looks about the same as Thursday weatherwise but Sunny and maybe hitting close to 60
Got my Morning routine out of the way and then headed down to the Fast Stop, a bit of Chat and got my lottos
Back up the Hill to the Price Chopper, wanted some Celery to add to my 'Steak Stew'
Got that, headed Home, worked my Lottos for Zero and had a late Breakfast and back to the Computer
After an Hour or Two on the Computer, out to the Kitchen to work on the Celery for the Stew
Chopped up a couple Stalks and put them in the Pot with a little Olive Oil to soften
Then into the big Pot of Beef Stew to warm up later for another Dinner
And checked the Plants in Garden One again, do not want to let the Lettuce to shade the tiny Tomato Plants
Clipped a few Leaves that were doing that, save then for a Sandwich whenever
~ Not much to write Home About ~
On to the NKC Hospital in a dripping Rain, the Traffic not as bad as expected, got there right on time
A short wait and into the little Room again, then the Nurse with her Tools to remove the Stitches
A few came out, then one HURT! But she got it out, them more some hurting some none at all
Down to the last three and she couldn't get them out, they were embedded deep, called in a Tech to do it
A nice guy, hope he's good at this, he seemed confident and he started in, One out, it HURT!
Two to go, another one and DAYUM! Worst thing I have been through that I can remember
One more and that also HURT BAD! and then there were none and I hadn't passed out... Hooray!
Headed back from the Torture Chamber, stopped by the Price Chopper for a Gallon of Wine
I sure am drinking a lot of that lately! Well, I did shut off the Margaritas, making me sleepy early
And then back at the Ranch at 11 a.m. with nothing to do the rest of the Day
Well hadn't had Breakfast, just Juice and Coffee, so how about lunch? Sammich maybe?
Yeah that would do, picked a few Leaves of Lettuce from Garden One that were shading the Tomatoes
The Lettuce is growing fast and the Tomatoes very slowly, so I have to watch that Lettuce
Got caught up with the latest CNN and MSNBC Drivel and then back to the Kitchen to dump in the Carrots
Some celery would have gone good in that Mix too, but I didn't have any, but on with the mission
And then to finish out the Day later, a Bowl of my 'Stew' with some Snacker Crackers and then drop down the Curtain
~ A Good enough 'Show' for Thursday ~
And back to scratch off a tiny $5 Win and on to the rest of the Day, need to think of something for Dinner
Then thought of something, I have lots of those Ham Hocks and Beans, but need some Cornbread and all out of Butter
Back to the Price Chopper once again for that, then something to do in the Afternoon
Got my Butter and Jiffy Cornbread and headed back, got 4 Packs of Jiffy Mix, will make two Skillets full
I like Jiffy, so cheap and easy to make, One Egg and 1/3 Cup of Milk and stir it up, so E Z!
On with the Oven, Peanut Oil in my Cast Iron Skillet, into the Oven to pre-heat
Mix up the Corn Bread Batter, into the Skillet and into the oven, then a box of Beans out of the Freezer
And... pour a Glass of Vino Tinto and back to the TV to catch up on the Non News
Got a fill of the 'News' in the 20 Minutes it takes to bake the Cornbread, then took it out of the Oven
On a rack to Cool, stir the Beans and back to the Afternoon full of TV
~ Nice 'Down Home' Dinner for Wednesday ~
Got a Call from Pat, actually she was returning my call for something I wanted to ask about
She said she had been busy with the upcoming Ghost Story Night but would like to come over to take a break
Asked if I might have any Spooky Movies to watch, ...Sure, several I had recorded recently
Remembering Yesterday and showing Navru how to take a Photo, I just had said 'Shoot' here
Then he tried hear and there and had a great time playing with that, now wants it
But he had that Fourth rate 'iphone' and misses out on a lot goodies my Samsung has
The Movie ended and then I flipped on the Computer and went to an old Sanctuary Ghost Night Video
That one ended and she wanted to see another one, well they do fit in the Halloween Week
Ghost Story Night at the Sanctuary is this Saturday and she is working on that
And that one ran out and it was time for her to head back to the Ranch
Pat headed up the Hill to Home and I headed out to the Kitchen to hunt for Dinner
And I found some Dinner and another Glass of Vino and back to the TV to finish another good Day
Got my Ladder out of the Pantry to climb up to look at Garden Two, earlier there were lots of blooms
But no Tomatoes showed up, now after a week or two it looks like it's trying again
Then a lot of Morning 'Computering around' and then Breakfast and a Shower and off to the Fast Stop
Lots of Chat with Navru and Customers, playing around with the Cell Phones, showing Navru this and that
He has an (UGH) iPhone and I was showing him some of the Goodies on my Samsung he doesn't have
Like taking Photos with a 'Voice Command' and how I can Mirror to most TVs with no cables or adapters
I took a break from that about 2 p.m. had a late lunch and then on to finish the Day as usual
Except the final hour or two, I tried my 'Screen Mirroring' to the TV with my Phone and it works great
Instead of going online with the Computer I can watch Amazon Prime, my Videos on Vimeo, listen to You Tube
And review my Blogs and Web Pages just using the Phone and the quality is the same
Then on to a nice Dinner and off to that quiet back Room for the Night
~ Monday ~ Suprizing much Warmer Day ~
Started working on those old pages again, by 10 a.m. I had another long one finished and uploaded
Then started on Page 35 and surprize, almost like my new pages, just some minor adjustments needed
Up to page 34 they needed less and less Edits, I guess my taste was improving in colors and neatness
Getting rid of that extra large Type and blaring Colors, still need to check the rest for missing Photos and Videos
And other details that (to me) improve the story and impressions
On Page 35 I found an early Garden Video that needed some sprucing up, downloaded the File
Added some Music, added to the Darkness of the Video, rendered, uploaded and posted the new Version
Then replaced a missing Video, somehow got changed and lost, finished that Page and Uploaded it
That one took quite a bit if time, but I started on page 36 anyway and a surpize again!
A few things to change and add but even less than Page 35, and some changes I made to the others not needed
Well that brought me to 2:15 p.m. and Time to pull the Plug and find other entertainment
And then into another Afternoon and Evening of winding down, was watching a Movie and sipping my Wine
About 5 p.m. knock knock knock on my Door, opened it and there was my friend from Uzbekistan, Navruzbek
And bearing Gifts, a sack full of Coffee Filters, I had gone there earlier to buy some Filters and he gave me a pack
That's enough for quite a long time at one a Day, but he brought me Four more Packs, just had damaged boxes
Now with the ones he brought I have enough filters for a Year or Two
Then on with my Movie, some Dinner and pulled the Plug earlier than usual after a busy Day
~ Sunday ~ Nicer Weather for another Quiet and Busy Day ~
Off with the Splint and bandages I had put under it, what for Today on that? Well put on a Glove
Get my Shower and then as little a Bandage as I can get away with, Doc says to keep flexing that Hand
Feels better with no Bandage at all, but does need some cover
Just took a peek out there with the Window Cam, the lot full of Cars for the next two Days
I like Weekdays better when most all are gone for the Day, and why do Saturday and Sunday seem longer than Week Days?
I hardly ever see the People here just those empty Cars lined up out front
So, I needed some Coffee Filters, hadn't been to the Fast Stop for a Week so I headed there
Then Dubra Utra and Buenos Dias and all that stuff... How doin Dod? And que te Pasa?
Where's yer Coffee Filters? over there, walked over, Navru headed to his Coffee Urn, had an open Box there
Gave the remaing Filters sans charge and then I got my Lottos then a lot of Chat, he wanted to talk
That finally wound down and I headed Home for another late Breakfast and worked my Lottos for a $15 Win
Had a big sack of Trash to dump so headed out and did that, headed around back and NO Pumkin Blooms, all finished
Gpo that Finale Photo and then noticed all those Green Celeb Tomatoes on the Vine, big enough to use for something
So I made that my last Harvest of the Season, now to process them some and add to my Relish or Tomato Verde Picante Sauce
~ Saturday ~ Quiet but Busy Day ~ Inside ~
On the Gardening front not much going on, I saw those little Celosia Plants out front
Trying to recover from their last Varmint or Bug attack, thought I would bring them in
I had Room for them on the shelf and they add a little brightness to the Kitchen
Tried my Splint last Night, about as comfy as the big Bandage which wasn't all that much
Off with that this Morning, cleaned up the hand a little and on with some Band-Aids, looks better
Back to the old Blog Pages and pecked away most all Day and finished another One
After that finished the Day as usual, might as well say good Night at 3 p.m.
Then off to Bed to dream about what adventures will arise on the Dawning
~ Friday ~ Quiet but Busy Day ~ Inside ~
Off to Bed early on Wednesday Night, just bored with everything after a pain free Day
No heavy Duty Pills, I am finished with that for a while, just a couple Aspirin at bedtime
Then a few Dreams, woke up twice, the third time at 6:30 and surprised that late
Got to get moving to get going at 8:30...
So, poured my Juice, finished and posted Wednesday's Blog, got this one started
Already 7:30 a.m. and time to hit the Shower, 'Time Do Fly' when yer having fun!
8:20 a.m. On with the Jacket and point that Mercedes at North Kansas City and the NKC Funhouse
Into the Little Room, BP Check, then off with the Huge Bandage... Hey there is a hand in there!
But what's been chewing on it? It's a real mess, and she says wait right here, the Doctor will be in... HAH!
And so then, at 3 p.m. I finished Page Number 30, and enough of that for the Day, now find something for Dinner
I found something for Dinner, tried it at Movie Time, didn't care much for the rerun
Had enough for the Day anyway and gave up for Beddy Bye Time... Buenos Noches...
~ Thursday ~ Busy Enough ~ Not a 'Thrilling' Day ~
And up but not quite 'at 'em' at 5 a.m. and no pain for a change, maybe I got 'er whipped now?
Planning to just coast through the Day, the big Bandage comes off Tomorrow, hope that helps things
The bandage does get in the way and I think increases the level of discomfort
So, saying Sunny for Wednesday... GOOD! Getting my fill of dull drab Days... and slightly warmer
42 Degrees now at 6 a.m. 61 tops, no swimming today, actually at this time... looks like no nothing today
Maybe some more Page updating, but now Coffee and Puzzles
Got that stuff done, what then? More old Page editing, might as well, nothing else on the Agenda yet
Back to Page 27, and that page was a big turning point, pages started getting more like now, much neater
I showed the difference to Pat on the earlier Pages, she thought they were OK, well, maybe at the time
I had just started the Blog Page when the Yahoo '360' Page was discontinued, don't think we used HTML for that
I was using HTML on my other Web Pages and some of those I have also been redoing to what I like now<
But there are a lot of them, and many more Blog Pages, could keep busy a long time updating them all
Anyway, on to Page 28, see if I can finish a couple more
Here is a sample of the Old and New... These shots don't show much but do give a hint
What ya think? Worth the effort to change all those pages? (I DO!)
So then on imto a very long and vey quiet afternoon of HTML Editing, I just kind of get in the flow
Finally wound down that activity at 3 p.m. Let's see what's for Dinner
And Dinner was a roasted Chicken Thigh I found in the Freezer with some Cabbage and Sweet Corn
A quite ample repast at that, prepped, went back to the TV for an old Movie
I got that all down, then Exit the Movie, Enter the Dinner, finish that and off to bed
And tomorrow, back to NKC Hospital first thing on Thursday
~ Wednesday... Painless Day for the most Part ~
Ohhhh, so sleeeeepy now this Morning... I had a better Night this Monday until about 2 a.m.
I got my new Pills Monday Afternoon, took a couple Tylenol at 4 p.m. Thought I would try the new one later
So off to Bed, an easy night to start and woke up at 10 p.m. Took a 'Norco' Pill then, back to sleep
And had a good sleep until abour 2 a.m. when the Norco wore off, but what Dreams! Then some pain again
Gave up and got up at 4:30 or so, took another Norco, started on Blog stuff again, then sleepy again
And do I mean sleepy! I began to feel that I was gonna pass out right then and there
So, I gave up and toddled back to bed, - right then and there! - And dropped back into Slumberland
And Dreamland too, I was into dreaming just about the time I laid back and pulled the covers up
So, woke up again a bit after 8 a.m. and feeling woozy, wonder if that is how those Pills work for me?
If so I ain't gonna use them, just stick with Tylenol which doesn't seem to work all that well eiher
Opened the shade in the Office Room, Brrrrrrr, Icy Windshields out there, and Weather says 33 Degrees!
More crazy Weather to add to this Year, all Year... Crazy Weather from January to October so far
So what to do all Day? Besides snooze and shiver? Work on my old Pages I guess, now on Page Number 25
So, just cruising along and taking it easy, one Day on the Page at a time... And stopping for Breakfast
And this and that... finished Page 25 just at Noon, ho hum... and stlll sleepy and woozy
Back to the old Pages, taking my time, finished Page 26, started on Page 27, got about half way through
Decided that was enough of that for the Day, drifted on through the rest of the Afternoon
On to TV time, a Glass of Wine, some light snacking... Duh, dull afternoon fer sure
And that was pretty much all of a not much going on Day, maybe I can wake up on Wednesday?
I'll let you know tomorrow, see ya..........
~ Tuesday ~ Slow, Sleepy and Blah Day ~
The Doctor gave me a prescription for 'Norco' but I didn't get it filled, to see if I really needed it
Last time I only used One heavy duty Pill after the Operation and I thought I had this one under control
And I did for a good while but it didn't last, so now I'm thinking I'll get that heavy duty Pill
Just in case for Monday Night, I would like a good Night of Sleep, ho hum, I ain't awake yet today
I looked up my Finger Operation in 2015, found a Photo, a tiny Bandage compared to the new one
I am thinking he might have done a little more fixing on this one, I'll see that Thursday
Then... back to the Web Pages... Moving right along with them... Worked most all Afternoon
Finished Page 24, uploaded that one and then back to the TV for winding down on an uncomfortable Day
Who's Idea was it anyway to have them hacking away on my Pinky?
~ Monday ~ A Bit Busy ~ A Bit Tedious ~
Up at 5 a.m. Took Two more Tylenol, hope they can cut down on this aching a bit
Mixed my Juice, put on the Coffee and on with the start of 'My Day' now at 6 a.m.
6:45 a.m. Drank my Juice, worked the Crossword, Tylenol seems to be working some but getting sleepy
Well I didn't get much sleep during the Night with all that tossing and turning, so what now?
Pour my Coffee and work on some more Blog Pages I guess... Duh...
8 a.m. still sleeeeepy... but finished old Blog Page 21 and sure looks a lot better now
Should I go back to Bed or start on another Page? Well I'll drink my Coffee and think about it
So sip, sip, sip, and I started on another Page, finished that and then took a short One Hour nap
Then another Cup of Coffee and started on another Page, nothing else to do and what a boring Day
And finished another Page and then started on another... Decided to stop for lunch at 2:30 p.m.
A peek out the Window then, BLAH! All cloudy and wet, so dreary, a nice Day to be inside doing what I was doing
Had a sammich for Lunch and then back to the old Page revisions and finished Page 23 at 3:30 p.m.
And that's enough of that for another Day, then Wine and TV Time until Dinner, let's cool it
Nope, let's warm it, plenty cool out front at 44 Degrees and light Rain
So I warmed it up watching TV, gave it up early and headed to bed, for a better night... hopefully...
~ Sunday ~ Kept Busy ~ But not much Fun ~
