Still have not heard from Pendleton Plumbing re our leaky toilet.
Our apartment manager was going to call them - again- yesterday.
Just hope they come soon!!!

Will probably be meeting Elaine later this morning.
Then need to launder all those towels that are collecting in our bathtub.

No definite plans for today - waiting for a call from the plumber. We have a leaky toilet - water all over the bathroom floor. My son thinks it is the seal where the water goes into the tank.

Goal is to go to bed early tonight (I did it last night and was so proud of myself, I decided to make it my goal again). Then tomorrow I have a few files to put my hands on. Doing great on minimizing the piles of work. I hope tomorrow will make a big difference!

Working on my August goals! I have really let myself down this past month. I have had a long talk with myself and I am ready to get back to work and get healthier.

I love this time of year with all the fresh veggies and the fruits in the grocery store are better.
My garden is keeping me in cucumbers and a few tomatoes, that is a salad for me! Just add a little salt and pepper and I'm good to go.

With my computer back I can do all of the exercise videos I had saved.
Look out August, I mean business NOW!

Only did one load of laundry yesterday - so need to do another load this morning.

Then no plans - yet. But, will probably shampoo part of the living room carpet. Have a great little shampooer and makes it so easy to do.

I remember my Mother-in-law telling me not to worry about the housework that needs to be done. There will always be more tomorrow. And, how true that is!! I can really clean the kitchen and the next morning it looks like it has been neglected for days!!

Today's goals:
Not much - perhaps a couple of loads of laundry and then knitting on my sweater for next winter!!

cut basil & got out the bag in freezer - the ice cube tray method is not good - when they thaw I can still use them , but just stuffing the leaves in a qt freezer bag works best .. anyway will make a batch of pesto

thawing a big bag of chicken legs - will put in crock pot after for dinner - still frozen and been out all night , and yes I know to keep in refidge but would still have been a frozen block this morning

signed up for HOOPLA thru the library and learning about that. it is on the lap top but I want it on the kindle .. so need to play with it

Each day I do something that involves activity and burning calories. I am working toward walking more often. emoticon
I cannot go to my gym classes for few weeks, Silver sneakers. I had a procedure done and they want me to not jump around for at least few weeks. Will be hard to hold off but the walking will keep me Motivated while I heal.
I am committed to tracking and eating healthy. One day at a time will get me there. emoticon
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and God bless.
