I have a house guest.

I have a house guest staying with me and I am going to really have to do some praying for her. 
It is Nickilee's Garden Angel and I am sorry to say she is a wild and crazy slut!!!!!.  She had a date this weekend with none other than Elvis.  Even with a chaperone she was all over him.  Pictures and details to come later.  Right now I am exhausted and I am going to bed.  Keeping her out of jail was a full time job for me.  When it comes to Elvis, this girls showed no scrupples or restraints. 

Be sure to check back later for more details and pictures.

Warm buns.

Nikki's garden angel

My guest arrived just in time to help me recover from knee surgery.  We will be fine in a few days. We just had a simple scope done to do some minor repair.  It turns out that most of my knee pain is from arthritis.

Ms Garden Angel is watching over me and keeping me company.  We have been laying here discussing how unfair it is for me not to be able to drive for a few days and we have so many places we want to go, Not to mention the brand new Chevrolet Equinox darling hubby bought me last Friday.  Bummer.  We have a lot planned and we will celebrate the first of the week when I can drive again.

I should have had this done this summer and it would be over with.  It is just an old football injury that I was putting off because I dreaded it so much.  I have been on a diet since the middle of JUly and the more I walked the more it hurt.  I lose weight better if I exercise and watch what I eat.  If I just watch what I eat it does not come off as good. 

Now as soon as Ms Garden Angel and I are ready to travel again we are going on a mission to find Elvis.  We know he is not gone and is most likely hanging out somewhere in town.

Will I ever have another leisure day?

I am exhausted.  I have spent the last month taking down all the pictures off the walls storing away all the decor in my house.  We had all the interior of the house painted except two bedrooms.  We had all the ceilings, walls, and trim painted.  I would have a lots rather move than all that.

Now I get to dust and clean off everything as  I put it back where it belongs.  I have a list a mile long to go on free cycle of things that no longer match the new colors.  None of my curtains work anymore.  I have to make new drapes and new quilt for my bed. 

We spent 4 long days watching tv and living in the spare bedroom because all the furniture was covered up in the rest of the house.  I have spent the last three days cleaning and putting everything back where it belongs.
Mike has spent the last two days buying paint and repainting places that the painters missed.  You would think that if you paid someone to paint your house it would be painted.  It does not always work that way.
If I half ass done something like that for someone else, it would ruin my reputation and I would starve.  I guess I did not do my home work and check her out good enough.  LESSONS LEARNED!!!!!!

Darling husband bought me a new car Friday.  I love it.  I have been driving a pick up truck since my daughter got married in 1997.  It is a mocha metalic (taupe) colored Chevrolet Equinox.  It has all the bells and whistles on it.  Almost too fancy for me.

Tomorrow I am doing the blood work and preregistering for surgery on my knee Thursday.  I should be incapacitated for a few days this weekend.  I have had this done before and as I remember it was painful for a few days.  I was a lot younger then than I am now.

My journey has hit a brick wall since I have not been able to walk and exercise.  I hope by this time next week I can start back walking.  I have lost 21 pounds and I have hit a brick wall.  Hopefully things will get back on track shortly after my knee surgery.

I will try to post pictures of the new car and new house colors this week. 
We had a birthday party Sat at the new fire station for John Paul and Ruth Ann.  The kids young and old had a very good time.  I will try to post some pictures of that also.   I will do it Friday while I can not get around very well.

I have been on a journey since July 14th. {i hate the word diet so I call it a journey} I have lost 21 pounds and still have quite a few more pounds to go.  Wish me luck!!! I used to say I wanted to make my husband proud of me again for our 40th wedding anniversay.  I dont say that anymore.  I JUST WANT TO BE PROUD OF MYSELF!!!

Happy Birthday to my dear husband on Sept.4, 2010.  He is eligable for Social Security.  I can not believe I am married to someone that is 62!!!

We left Friday and went to Foxworth, Ms to spend the night with Mikes brother and his wife, Micky and Janet.  When Mickey got off work Sat. at noon we left and went to Ocean Springs, Ms.  We ate at a place in Van Cleave called The Shed.  It lived up to its name.  It looked like my sons  little barn in his back yard only this place had started out as a take out place and they had added on  several times to make it into a
place to sit down and eat.   Gooooooood food.  Wild and crazy atmosphere.  After dinner we found a sports bar and watched the end of the crazy end of the Ole Miss non game.  We then stayed to watch the MS STATE game.  We got up this morning and headed home as we have painters coming in the morning to paint the interior of our house before Thanksgiving.

Uncle Mickey will be at our house for Thanksgiving and it will be his 60th birthday on the 26th of November.  Our Thanksgiving dinner will probably turn into a birthday party for him. 

Now to get home to find out how much damage I have done to my 21 pound weight loss!!!

I did get a lot of work done on my mini quilt due in November.  It is for an HGTV board member so I wont be able to post pictures of it until after she receives it.

I did just finish quilting a quilt for Quiltaholic for her Ronald McDonald House raffle. I hope I win it.
I will have to post a picture when I get home.
