past couple of days..doggie pic


She sleeps so weird at times.

Besides watching the news which causes grief. 

I paid the bills, we have 1 left to come in which is the electric and then the regular stuff like gas for the dog truck, food, etc. I transferred the money to cover the out of pocket medical costs (I know I have to pay in full  before surgery to the medical account we have. I made another extra payment on the mortgage and loans.  I checked to see what was left and decided to transfer money to savings of what was left leaving just enough to cover us until the next "payday" from the IRAs. 

Hubby was going to get cereal for bfast this morning, I ask where we were on the bread. He decided we would finish the loaf as toast. He ate 3 slices and I ate 1. I will make biscuits next. We have tortilla wraps.

Last night, I used part of the leftover kraut from the 1st to make Rueben sandwiches using the last of the rye bread from the freezer (unless some is buried). I used 1 can of corned beef. I now know 1 can makes 2-8 inch wraps and 1 sandwich. I used ketchup, mayo and green tomato dill relish to make the  thousand island dressing. I have one more kraut in the freezer for later as we never eat a full jar and I only use jarred kraut.

Today ,I took the meat mixture I made and froze for hamburger pie.  I had froze it in the casserole dish I use to make the "pie" and then took it out and put it in freezer bags. So as this thaws it is already back in the dish. I put out the frozen corn (from the gardens) and will use leftover mashed potatoes I froze from the 1st. I will "drain" off the extra water before spreading it on top. 

I am making a list of things I can do without straining my hip while recovering, thanks to suggestions of others that have had this surgery. I also started a list of meals as Hubby's work has started picking up.

I got my "hip kit" from Amazon. The scrubby to wash your legs is too short and I am only 5 ft so maybe it's my arms are too short. The sock helper is worthless. Even Hubby that wears a extra large sock and Son 1 who wears a size 16 shoe couldn't get their socks over the end of it let alone my sock fitting over it. I will be looking for something else as some times Hubby leaves for work before I get up and I don't want cold feet all day. I will wear socks to bed but usually find I have taken them off in the night .

Blessed Be
