Stuff & nonsense

The Mr. just made breakfast for us, I'm enjoying a cup of coffee and then I'm going to try a daring experiment...putting on my work shoes and going to Target. I'm 99% mended and shooting for back to work tomorrow without crutches. If the Target adventure goes well, I might just go buy that shamrock plant that the Mr. isn't getting for me. I'll round up the day by sketching out my yard & garden plans just in case the Mitten does eventually thaw out and then making Swiss steak for dinner.

As you may have noticed, I have updated my profile picture. What you don't know, and so I must tell you, is that it took approximately 80 self-shots to get one that didn't make me cringe. I told the Mr. we needed to update our Facebook pic as well since the one posted now is from October but he refuses to do so until we have lost weight. The point is, the next photo on Facebook is likely to be at his reitrement party...in 20 years. I'm going to keep working on him. I'll keep you updated.

What else shall I tell you? Oh, I know! I have a dream. I have a dream that if my foot withstands the Target and shamrock purchasing, I want to go to Lowe's. We are putting plantation shutters in our family room and kitchen this spring and I want to order them and I just want to look around. Every once in a while, a person just needs to look around Lowe's or Home Depot, don't you think? You may say that I'm a dreamer. Well, I'm not the only one.

Have a good day whatever your plans or dreams may be. I'll post a picture of my shamrock!

Good luck with the outing. Hope you aren't pushing it, though. [I had to read back, to find that you have a broken foot! Eeeeeeeeeek!]

Nice new Icon picture. I know what you mean about not liking one's own pic though.

Before I went out this morning, I thought I looked pretty good. So I grabbed my camera and tried to get a couple of pics. Hahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!LOL!

Perhaps I'm just *blind* when I look in the mirror. 'Cause what shows in the cam, is NOT what I THOUGHT I saw, in the MIRROR. -giggles-

Gentle hugs...
