T Stands for Released

 Hi Everyone!

I am so happy. Ohh noooo the happy word. hee hee hee.....
BTW I'm writing this on Monday. I saw my podiatrist today. He was very impressed on how far I have come with my foot. I showed him all of the exercises I am doing and he approved my functional walking several weeks ago. I asked if there were any other exercises he wanted me to do. He laughed and said, "You are so far ahead of the game. I wish I could get some of my other patients to do what you have done." After all of that I put a few of my corpsed skulls on the counter and he went wild for them. He asked if he could touch them. Well of course. Then I asked him to close his eyes. I removed the zombie dead foot from the box I had it in. I held it in front of him and said, "OK open your eyes."  I could not be more happy with his reaction to the foot. Then the nurses came in to see and then pictures were taken. 
The best Dr. ever! I asked if he wanted to see me in a month. He said, "No, I think we are done. But if anything goes wrong you call me immediately." I am released.
I will miss Dr. Stanger.
The sun was shinning for a hour today. I took a look at my garden area. Boy, do I have a lot of work to do to get it ready for this year. I wasn't able to winterize it last year due to my foot, so I will be buying new soil and compost. 
Buckets will need to be cleaned and sterilized. I only got about half of them done last year.

Onion beds need weeding. I will get sand from the dune to mix with my soil. I had to tip over the gray planter. I was so filled with rain water. The plant will come back.


 The big bed will also need some weeding and fresh soil. Even with the garden work I think it is probably good for these beds to get all of the Oregon rain.


 
A few of this weeks dinners.

I baked crusty Italian bread
 

 To go with beef barley soup. Well more stew than soup.


 Tonight we had tostada dinner.


  Better photo?


 One day  I took the left over barley stew and made pot pie.


 I had a small amount of arrow root to thicken the stew.


 
For Valentine's Mr. M. always brings me a single red rose. This year when he went to purchase it the till wasn't working at florist. So she gave it to him for free. YAY!

 


 


 
 Nothing exotic to drink for me it's water, water, water all day long.

Friday Face OFF 2/15/24

 Welcome To Friday Face OFF (FFO)

This is the place to show off your faces or your face. Post any type of face from any medium. You can create it, or find it in nature, or even that face in the design of woodwork in your house. Human, animal, alien, or monster. Any kind of face.
 
I can't believe this week has gone by so quickly. I had every intention of drawing a face that takes more than 5 minutes. Haaa. 
So I started this piece this morning and will take my time finishing it up over the weekend.
This girl has a distinctive eye that is lower than the other. At first I was going to exaggerate it but then thought I would draw her the way she is. This face will be much different when I am done with it.

I found a great horse head to draw too. I think I can draw this one.
 I wrote the above part of this post early this AM. I had to go to Eugene for a noon oral surgeon appt. OMG! the rain was non stop and pouring something wicked. The tree service has the road closed in 4 different places. They are cutting limbs and trees and then clean up from the ice storm. It took us 2 1/2 hours to go 65 miles. Uhhhgggg. It was the first time to see this dentist. Hmmmm hope I never have to back to him. However, he did extract the tooth. 
So, to finish up the post and then go to bed. 
Here are 4 AI faces.
They are so fake looking. I have to change my descriptions.
