    Hello everybody~

    Sara - Wow, glad that the kitchen thing was an "almost" and not an actual fire! I totally understand how challenging it can be to do stuff nowadays that were much easier years ago.
    Well, you've got a bunch of yummy meals put together for yourself.
    Enjoy the soccer players and their "assets". 🤣

    It will be rain all day today so the air quality dropped down to a civilized number. It was 125 the other day. My apartment is midtown, and it is tourist season, so the traffic is jammed. Catalytic converters stinking up the streets. Cars idling while parked. A mask can't filter that poison.
    Everybody and their uncle seems to need to come here to see the tree at Rock Center. Gah! 😫

    Well my document shredding project is coming along. That's good.

    Good evening,

    It is amazing how much paper work we keep and think we need to have and trying to keep privacy. You keep up the good work on that. There must be something nice about being "back home again".

    Cooking is done and I have a nice mess in my sink again. Worth it though.

    Friend from church thinks the Korean cakes are dry and so I now have 2 more boxes in the house. I wont complain too much. They are nice treats at the end of the day.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Waves to Sara and Missy and anyone else who stops by later on~~

    Good evening,

    Got my pendant for my secret pal at church. I also walked 7700 steps today as I needed to meet the lady up front of units as it is so hard to find my place. Nice to see the lights people are putting up.

    Lana - hope you are feeling better.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good evening-

    Got another walk after work and hit 7K-I get into bed and pass out. Win/win.

    Very glad I got a warm jacket as it has been colder than the last 3 years.

    Spruce scented wax burning and reading is up next.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Wow - Sara you are clocking them miles! I admire your accomplishments - you are doing much better than I am, and I'm doing a lot!

    The spruce scented wax must be lovely 🌲

    Tired Lana 😴

    Hello - just checking in.

    I am tired, and the mood is down. I am halfway through this 14-day dreadful trip. Now I can begin to count down 'til next Wednesday when I get to leave this awful place.
    I must say though that my eating here has been healthy-ish.

    Sara - I hope that you are doing OK

    Waves to anyone who stops by today.

    Good evening,

    Soccer marathon has ended.

    Eating a fish stick wrapped in mozzarella, with the best crumb topping. It is on a stick -- Korean "corn dog". I will get these at the Asian store. Coworker offered me one to try -

    6300 steps today.

    I bought myself a portable dvd/cd player that people give to their kids in the car - I want to be able to see my Christmas dvd and I needed another dvd player (bought cheap) and I wanted to sit in a comfortable chair. I had to charge it for 8 hours - so today I can watch BBC Christmas shows. One of my presents to myself. Did I mention I am decorating a stocking for a squirrel? Coworker lost her mother this year and she is feeding a local squirrel. I decided to make her one might be "favoritism" but who will get jealous over a squirrel?

    Lana - Keep going some days are easier than others - stopping is not an option. Why? you ask. They win if you do.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Whew, it's Saturday.
    That means that the renovation work in the apartment above me will be quiet for two days.

    Sara - that is a cute Peanuts thing.
    How neat that you are making a stocking for a squirrel! That will brighten your co-workers day a bit 👍🏻

    Maybe be back later?......

    Happy Saturday,

    Hit a wrong key and end up who knows where? So I start over. 5k today not bad for a day off. Waiting for water to boil to cook rigatoni. Adding spinach/canned mushrooms/alfredo sauce and chicken for a couple of meals.

    Woke up and got on computer 35 degrees. Wow this is a cold winter.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe/warm and safe out there.

    Happy Sunday 🎄

    There's a rain storm up and down the Appalachians. Blech out all day.

    A new restaurant opened up on my street called The Barking Dog Cafe. They have indoor and enclosed "outdoor" seating - so - they allow dog owners to bring their dogs! We saw so many cute puppers this morning! Big ones and teeny-tiny ones! Woof!

    Sara - you are doing amazing with your steps. The rigatoni sounds great 😋

    Good evening,

    Someone mentioned they had a Grinch themed dinner over the weekend so someone found a picture of a green doughnut for me. I said I hope it was mint flavored. Sometimes coloring is not appetizing.

    I got warm socks and scarf from my secret pal. She also gave me a beautiful painted wooden angel. It made me cry. She said she thought I needed a little somebody to help. Makes me wonder do I look that bad? I appreciate the gesture and have her in a place I can see it often.

    It is Monday night and it is over. Give ourselves credit.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Ah, it's Tuesday - a much better day than a Monday.

    The sun is actually shining in the big apple today. Tomorrow I get to leave and go home. Yay!

    Sara - you have a very sweet secret pal. 🥰

    Good evening,

    Something to be said about airports at least you get your steps in.

    Thursday is hit the brick wall day - tomorrow is "I dont care day" - if my hair looks less than average. If my socks dont match my slacks. Those kinds of things.

    Cloudy will make it not so cold here. I think I saw rain over the weekend.

    Got a delivery and so I now have basil paste. More pasta meals soon.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good evening,

    Happy Friday - TGIF and happy holiday shopping.

    Hans has been threatened with 1970's European pop music (pathetic stuff) and has changed his mind. It will be upbeat country music. Good way to get our steps in.

    I will be curled up afterwards reading a book. Hot chocolate will be tomorrows treat. If drunk every day it loses a little bit of its magic.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.
