MONDAY MONDAY!! is really really foggy outside!! I was going to get up and try to go exercise and see how my knee held up BUT...not until this fog is gone a little!! It is really thick and since I don't HAVE to go out in it...well i am staying right here!!

We have had the "best of weather" here in the South Eastern part of the United States!! This is what we wait for all year long!! Yesterday it got up to 76 or so and was just beautiful!! I know you are all saying but that is not Christmas weather!! I know. It took me a long time to get over that. But when I see the storms and the ice..well I would ope for this real easy!!

Today I go to the orthopedist to see about my knee. I had my MRI this past Friday. It was an OPEN one. I am very claustrophobic and just cannot do those CLOSED ones (without a lot of medication)!! I was so surprised at myself this time. I actually fell asleep during the 30 minute process!! That was an expensive nap to be sure!! They put my MRI on a CD and after I paid they gave it to me to take today!! Some expensive CD!! My appointment is this afternoon. My knee is feeling pretty good so far. Since the cortisone shot I have been doing great!! I know that no one knows how long it will last though. We shall see!!

Hubby and I spent the weekend together!! We watched a couple of movies from Netflix, ran around a little, went to church together, went to a grand opening of a new Lowe's, ate together and well just spent the weekend.... TOGETHER!! I really enjoyed it. It was nothing upsettinly special just normal life...and that is the way I like it.

Thanks everyone for posting such wonderful recipes. I think that I am "baked and cooked out". I did it for so many years that nothing like that even seems appealing to me. I do not have the big dinners like i used to have before we moved so none of that worries me anymore. Besides, it just adds to my weight problem...RIGHT?

I think that we are finally adjusting to having just one kitty now. Annie is quite the loveable cat. I think she might miss Simon but who knows what a cat is thinking. She seems like she is more loveable since he left. I have been trying to clean up after him but it is so hard. I wish I knew what to do to get rid of that awful smell. I used bleach yesterday on the tile downstairs and almost blinded myself doing it. STRONG!! I cleaned carpets but i don't think it worked. We may have to replace them!! UGH!!

I sincerely hope that everyone's MONDAY is doing fine so far!! Please when you stop by leave a comment!! I love hearing from everyone!! Just does me good for the day!! smile...

Hi Sandy,

I always enjoy reading your blogs. Sounds like you and hubby had a great weekend together.

I'm like you in that I don't do a lot of cooking for Christmas since all the kids are grown and most living out of State. Got where I hate to cook.

I am glad the crtisone shot is working for you. My Mom used to use horse liniment on her knees. I went to Tractor Supply the other day and got some for my husband. He thinks it helps. Doesn't get rid of the pain all together but helps a lot.

I want to come to Savannah some time. I hear it's beautiful there. said...

I am so glad you had a great weekend! Sounds peaceful!! I have to have an open MRI's also! I just freak out on the other kind... But I did fine on the open ones!! I sure hope you get a good report this afternoon! Let us know.
Sorry about the cats making it smell,is there anything much worse then cat spray......
Love and Hugs, Carolyn

LOL! I don't think too many are stopping by these days! Two weeks before Christmas I think everyone has gotten pretty busy with holiday stuff. I NEED to be busy with holiday stuff - but can't seem to get UNbusy with regular LIFE stuff! sheeeesh! What DID the doc say about your MRI? UPDATE please???

I agree with you on Christmas weather ! I hate cold weather and it was so nice last year when we went to Egypt and had more then 80° !

LOL on the expensive nap. For sure for sure, huh? The weather here is cloudy....but oh how I love the's so pretty and makes the world seem quiet and 'unbusy'.

Yep, a February birthday for me. The 9th.

Happy day to you [love the music here too by the peaceful] Sandy.

What a great day you had with hubby. I had to laugh at you falling asleep during your MRI lol. Hope all went well at the orthopedist yesterday.

I haven't started baking for the holidays. I feel so behind. I'm having about 25 people here for an after Christmas dinner.
