Something New and just added an update

a memory picture
I just found
and to think they are now teenagers
and rarely spend the night with grandma
any more :(
can this really be just about 11 or 12 years ago.   My how we all change

Flax Seed Oil (good since seeds I use get caught in my teeth)
Oil Pulling  (did years ago and stopped, will say using coconut oil helps my dry mouth)
Calcium pill at night...suppose to help you sleep better
Oldest daughter seeing a specialist and these are some recommendations.
Now for 2 nights took Calcium pill before going to bed and did sleep better but may have been
because I was very tired :)  My over the counter is Calcium plus Magnesium.

I am so pleased with the view I have of my garden from every window, do not think ever
I witnessed so many blooms

I thought the market was grilling today, made a special trip but seems not so.   Bought a small steak
the best you can buy.  Need the calories and the treat
Plan on trying the new small George Foreman grill I just bought.  Would love to cook outside
on the charcoal grill but one small steak is not wise.

Made 2 small stuffed potato's, sour cream, butter, mashed potato, some cheese and sprinkled
my chives on top.

Last night made another jello salad that was made for probably over 50 years and children loved it.
One Lime Jello and one Lemon with Pineapple, cottage cheese and sweetened condensed milk.
Last week made the Orange Jello with Mandarin Oranges and Pineapple and was a nice snack all

Will add a yellow squash and zucchini to my meal in a while  and still want to make Nan's  Sweet German Chocolate Brownies,
 maybe this evening it will happen.....

weather is a little cooler.


My meal looked so good, small grill worked good, meat tender
with Shingles affecting gums severely could not chew the steak, could a few really small pieces
So baked potato, veggies and Jello was good with an Orange Cookie still here.

I will say
that if anyone reading my words has not had a Shingle Shot
please get one
I did not and thought I was safe
but with a bad extraction the Shingles surfaced - now 4 months.

Met someone at the market that in the past helped me with trees
he said he had them on his face and took 8 months to go away :(

I have seen a couple of older friends go through the Shingles ordeal, so when the local pharmacy had the shot for free--I got it!!!
I love my George Forman grill--the second one I now have had. This time I got the one where the cooking trays snap out so I can wash them in the dishwasher.
Now--I'm craving baked potato and steak!!!

You sound more upbeat, I am so glad you are cooking and baking for yourself. A great sign!

So sorry you’re coping with shingles. Hope you get over them soon. I did get the singles shot when available and a couple days ago received the new even more effective one a couple days ago. I had chicken pox when a child.

Love hearing about the delicious food you are making, and sharing the lovely flowers. So glad you have progress!! Thank you for reminding people about the shingles shot. I had shingles in 2015, and they were awful and of long duration. I've had the shot but am going to check to see if I need a subsequent dose.
We have such a cool and clear day here, and the Cape is mobbed with people.

Think of you often.
