Five on Friday: April 24, 2015

It's good to be back blogging again. Sometimes I need a break and then I come back with a renewed interest. Does it work for you that way?

1. Since my son started on Ancestry.com, I am becoming aware of things that are associated with genealogy and memory making.  This use of PicMonkey seemed really cool to decipher old gravestones. I'm going to try to visit graveyards out of state as the weather warms up.

2. Have your used this kind of thing? Target has it on sale this week and want to give it a go.
3.  Lately I've been looking for a 'style' for PSE that gives a gold surface. I finally saw one and think I will buy it. I just have to be sure that I didn't already buy one like it in the past. Sometimes there are things hanging out in computer that are gathering virtual dust. I know I have a folder called "actions and styles to install" and I know that folder doesn't have all the bits I've bought! I hope you know what I mean...



4.  Yesterday was my husband's birthday. Somehow when you get to a certain age it just doesn't seem as interesting or something as it once was. I made him some shortbread but it would have been better had I read the instructions thoroughly.  I'm really no baker. Dorie Greenspan's recipes are ones I trust. I just am too hasty some times. Here it is and I'll definitely make it again.



5.  Then there is my new footwear. I am back to wearing the boot on my left heel. You can see it in the photo above. The bone spur is really killing me after such a great recovery from the right knee replacement. The doctor told me that basically she could help me with pain relief and management. I am supposed to wear a mini boot during the night. That's been ordered and until it comes, I'll wear the boot during the day. I think I'll be able to get about 3-4k steps a day but not a lot more.  Considering the problems I could be having, it's not unbearable. It's just frustrating.

That's about it for me. May we all have a great weekend! See you on Monday.

TBT: Do You Save These?

In making the shortbread for my husband, I gathered up the butter wrappers I've saved and put them in one baggie - finally. I then got to thinking, do other people still do this? I learned it from my Nana about 65 years ago!


There's always something left on the wrapper and I usually find two wrappers are more than enough. I just need to do some more baking!
