Tuesday to Friday, November 16-19,2010-Updated Twins Photos!

It was very foggy when I finally dragged myself out of bed this morning. I didn't walk AGAIN! I really hate that but I knew I needed to go for groceries today so didn't want to aggravate my heel anymore than I had to.

Gordon had a dentist appointment this morning. He's getting everything done before my coverage ends at the end of the year.

While he was gone I baked a loaf of bread and got the vacuuming done. More heel aggravation!

After lunch, I went out for groceries but stuck to two stores to stay off my heel. When I returned, I lay down to read and woke up late for getting dinner. It was only about 5 minutes late.

After a night of rain we had a very nice, warm (for this time of year) day only to give it up to rain again as darkness fell.

Last night, I listened to Howard & Linda Payne's live radio broadcast interview on the RV lifestyle with a talk show host in Connecticut. They did a good job. I've been following their blog since they started RVing the year after we started and we got to meet them briefly when we were at Mustang Island State Park, I think in 2005.


I woke up to rain this morning so had a good excuse to stay off my heel. I had another night last night of not feeling well. Don't know what's up with that. It wasn't as bad as Saturday night but definitely not the norm for me. We'll have to see if it continues. It's probably reflux related.

I did nothing all day again, read, computer. The temperature dropped throughout the day and it continued to rain.


I decided to get off my hiney and go for a short walk. It wasn't rainy and wasn't particularly cold (by our standards for the time of year) so I went out for 15 minutes and even did some running being careful not to land all of my weight on my heel. It didn't seem any worse when I returned but iced it right away anyway.

Our twin grandchildren were born today but that was reported separately as it was a very special event! Here are some new photos that Tracy's (the mommy) sisters have posted on Facebook. It's hard to tell them apart right now without their hats on!


We actually had a wind chill this morning. The temperature was -2C (28F) but the wind chill was -8C (18F). It was sunny though so I had a short walk.

I thought I had lost my new phone this morning. Gordon called me and it was no where in the house so before panic completely took over, I checked the car. Somehow it must have fallen out of my purse and it was on the driver's seat ringing away. Gordon must have sat on it this morning and didn't realize it. No damage! I'll have to rethink where I put it in my purse, I guess. It's not that much different in size from the Verizon one but I guess it's enough that the side pockets aren't safe.

This afternoon I had my first appointment with our new dentist here in Smiths Falls. I really liked the hygenist and the dentist that I spoke to was really nice as well. He doesn't think I need the gum grafting which really endeared me to him.

After that I went to the Real Deal. It's a recycling place, like a thrift shop but doesn't have clothing. I wanted to register for a repurposing class to take place next Friday. That should be fun. The general description I was given was pick something in the store and figure out something else to do with it other than what it was intended for using crafting methods. Okay, we'll see how that works.

I picked up some stuff to make a wreath then headed downtown to look around. It was cold but a nice sunny day. I managed to find three sweaters at the Thrift Store downtown but after walking around my heel was really sore!


  1. I hope you can get some relief for your heel. Have you tried inserts for your shoes or boots? I wear "Superfeet" in both my hiking boots and my walking shoes, and they really feel good. Good luck figuring out how to beat it.

    Those babies are darling! Thanks for posting the pictures.

  2. Congrats on the twins! We listened to Howard and Linda on the internet also. Pretty cool.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
