Do all those feathers make me look fat?
The feathers just make your fat look kinda a fluffy...
Back from a visit to my orthopedist. In the course of the conversation, I learned that he shaves with a straight razor, soap & a badger brush. I knew there was a reason I liked this guy.
Pretty good day. Nice, smooth day at work and came home to a great dinner and now my wife is heading out with her friend. Just going to relax for the night with my dog, some good music, and some "special" homemade blondie brownies since I live in a fully legalized state.
Not a good beginning to this day(3-11). I took a bath yesterday afternoon, and the bathwater remained in the tub. I have a slight feeling the bath handle needs to be replaced, as it took a little longer than normal to push it down. Thus, my "shower" was achieved while standing at my sink:-(. I managed all right, but splashed water here and there, of course. At least shaving remains normal, but it's trickier to rinse off the body(face)wash. Landlord will be informed.
I had to take my wife's minivan in yesterday because of a vibration that would start after it had been driven for a bit. It turned out that both front brake calipers were frozen and had to be replaced. On the up side, it ended up being cheaper than I was afraid of and a much nicer experience that I had when I took my old Honda Element to the local "Mr. Tire" for brake work.
It’s been an interesting couple of days. Yesterday, I was working an event at the archery club. A family booked the range for lessons for his son & friends, as a birthday party. I think this is a great idea & the kids loved it. But the other instructor who was supposed to work with me had a family emergency. Fortunately, the dad & grandpa are avid archers with the skills and knowledge to assist. The kids were well-behaved and the family was very helpful with setup and clean-up. (They brought in food and left the range spotless.). so it was satisfying but very tiring.
Today, I had my first chair yoga class. This is meant for people with mobility issues, who can not do traditional yoga. It is good exercise and relieved a lot of soreness that I was experiencing. After yesterday, I really needed this!
I've been thinking about chair yoga. I was in a traditional yoga class, but had trouble with balance. Posture, too. Now that I am "eligble" for services at ,my Senior Center, perhaps I should give it a try.
Woke up with a slight headache, after getting some breakfast in me I decided to take my wifes idea up about ice fishing with her Pastor-he is from South Korea and he has not done any ice-fishing! Its fun to watch some one catch a fish to this day and puts a smile on my face the facial expressions and excitement that it can bring.
I also have trouble with balance, since I had a discectomy about 13 years ago. I could probably get down to the floor to do traditional yoga. Getting back up would be another matter. I have only just had my first class, but based on that limited experience, I am going to recommend that you give it a try.
The landlord came to put in a new tub handle, so we got the old, cold bathwater drained. That should been great news for my day-I mean, it IS-but right after returning from the gym, I had a bad fall, as my foot collided with a table leg and I was thrown into my sofa-chair, as well as the carpeted floor. . It was a hard landing, and I'm a little worried about a possible rib I jury. When the "blizzard" clears, I might call my doctor for an inspection. One of those things where the pain has settled down a bit for now, but how will it be in the next couple days....might have to delay that chair-yoga, @Sara-s
Oh no, @Paul Turner ! I am so sorry you got hurt. Take care, see the doctor & try thr chair yoga, when you are better.
Oh that's not good. Heal it quick.
Snow day today (despite the weather having turned out just fine), so rather than do all the things I was supposed to do, I cooked up a storm. I made a batch of scones (orange cranberry from a package) and a batch of beef barley soup (from scratch with homemade bone broth).
Thanks @Sara-s. Another activity I'll have to avoid is archery, as I'm a southpaw, and it's the left rib. Course I never tried archery since the "early days".
This was dinner last night (meatless Fridays during Lent)... My first attempt at Poffertjes (little Dutch pillows of heaven).
Does having your tongue out like that help your aim?
I may be many things, but I'm no Michael Jordan
