TGIF! The Final one of the Olympics
Gotta love our women's soccer teams!
Go Olympians Go! We are so proud of you!
Can't wait to see the Closing Ceremonies on Sunday.
Morning & ..................TGIF!
What a busy week. At work & afterwards also. Just wanted to pop in & say Hi!
Had a scare with Marty Wed. Thought he was having a stroke, pain in his left eye & left side of his face going numb. Turned out he had 2 things going, a cut on his cornea & a virus that settled in his eye. Same virus that causes chicken pox & shingles. Was given 2 different meds & goes back to the doctor today. He says it's feeling better just looks bad. Did not need that on top of everything else but, thank God, it was an easier fix.
Better head to the shower & get ready for work. Have a blessed day all!
Good Morning Everyone,
Susan, glad to hear Marty is okay. I am sure he is or was in a lot of pain with a cut on the cornea...How are your doing and your foot??? Did the cortisone shot help? One good thing, the weekend is upon us and hopefully you and Marty can get some rest...
Nancy, my deepest sympathy at the loss of two neighbors and friends...Sometimes life just takes over and we need to take care of those matters....Hopefully after VBS, you can get some "me" time....
Hauke, how is your tummy? Feeling better, I hope?
Peggy, hot and humid here too, but we did have rain and some storms last night, so now I think it is cooler...I didn't get to our Market yesterday.. I was hurting pretty bad all day and just didn't feel like walking around down there...I miss going to the market, but luckily, Ron and I have enough stuff planted to enjoy.... Our tomato's started coming and I know I will enjoy lots of tomato and onion sandwich's...LOL
Joyce, enjoy your time with Maycee!!! I am sure she will keep you smiling and happy...
I guess the celebrex is out of my system now as my leg is more painful.. I didn't get much of anything done yesterday after I saw Mom.. I laid down and napped....So this morning, I really need to do some laundry and get a few things done...I went grocery shopping after I saw Mom yesterday, rode the cart all over Giant Eagle and picked up a bunch of TV dinners, some canned SF fruit and some other canned things...I will stop at the store again this weekend and try to remember to take the list I made of what i need...LOL
Everyone take care and enjoy your Friday!!
Doris – I usually enjoy watching the Olympics, but I just haven't done it this time around. I really wanted to see the gymnastics. I'm glad you have been able to enjoy them.Nancy – I'm sorry to hear of two of your neighbors passing. How sad. You are a good friend to listen to others' problems. Sometimes just being able to vent helps so much, even if the other person never says anything. Just having a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen is good. Hauke – TGIF to you also.Susan – I'm sorry Marty has the virus in his eye, but I'm glad it wasn't something worse.Mary- With your sore knee, it's no wonder you don't want to do anything. Just take it easy. Cleaning and such can wait.There was a change of plans and I didn't need to spend the night with Maycee last night. I will see her tomorrow though. We are going to the hot air balloon race.We had storms go through again last evening. I wasn't home, but they showed the damage on the news. There were high winds and big hail. I had another inch of rain in the gauge. We are only to get to 75 today. It is still humid.
hauke, love the TGIF this morning. The games are so much fun to watch, for the most part. Hope your stomach is all calmed down now that you have been home all week.
Susan, how scary for you and Marty(especially him). Glad it wasn't a stroke, but doesn't sound like much fun between the cut and the virus.
Nancy, how nice that you are the listening post for those in need of an ear. Are the kids enjoying the Market Place VBS?
Mary, I'm sorry your knees are back to hurting again. Good thing surgery is only a few days away. Does your mom seem to be adjusting more each day? Tomato/onion sandwiches are so good.
Joyce, I'm glad you got more rain. Maycee will enjoy the hot air balloons. Have fun.
Doris, you finally caught up to us with the heat, and we are starting a cool down.LOL
We had rain, glorious rain all day yesterday. Started during the night and rained most of the day. Cloudy today and should get more of that great wet stuff!!!LOL We were to be in the low 70's yesterday, but I'm pretty sure we didn't make it out of the 60's. Such a nice cool down for us.
The rain brought the customers in to eat. We were very busy and it was great. Hopefully, the weather will bring them in today also.
One of the cooks at work(and a friend for many years) is going to re-roof for us in the coming weeks. Tomorrow, Danny and I will head to Menards to order shingles so they can be delivered next week. We might not have to replace all the boards, but it is definitely a needed job.
Take care all.
I love tomato sandwiches ... but I've never heard of tomato onion sandwiches. Please do tell - how do you make them? I mean - what kind of onions? do you dice it all up or just slices? I do love green onions Never thot of adding them to a tomato sandwich. So .... let's have your recipes.
I bought some yellow & green beans at the market last night - and two cobs of corn. So I think I'm enjoying a veggie supper tonight! with a little of my left over roasted chicken. Simple, and quick!
I've noticed in this heat I'm not enjoying my coffee as much, but I hated just throwing it out as good coffee costs money. So I've started putting it in the fridge. I figured, you can buy iced coffee at McDonalds and Starbucks, why not make my own. So I have a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge, and some iced coffee. They both taste great.
Mary, what time do you have to be at the hospital on Monday? How long do they think you'll be "in"? Just preparing myself for missing you on the DC ... and know you'll be in all of our prayers.
Today is catch up day here and I'm just taking a break before I go make some lunch. The temps are about 5 degrees cooler than Wednesday - but wow - what a difference those 5 degrees make! Much more noticeable than between minus 20 and minus 25. LOL
Have a great Friday. I'm off to the kitchen.
Hauke, I like my tomato and onion sandwich with some mayo or miracle whip.. I just slice tomato's and onions and put them on a sandwich.. I also like it with some hot peppers too or a slice of cheese..YUM....Your supper sounds wonderful.. I made fried tomato's for lunch and enjoyed them so much...Ron had a chicken pot pie and I had fried tomato's and yogurt.. Yes, I shared the tomato's with him.. Our tomato's this year are beautiful...
I have to be at the hospital Monday at 7:45 AM....I am scheduled to get surgery procedures started by 8 AM. Surgery is about 45 -60 minutes and I will be in Recovery about 2 hours....I will be discharged on Thursday, if I am doing well enough to come home.. If not, I have to go to a nursing home for a week... I am hell bent on coming home..LOL
We went to see Mom this afternoon and took her the papers....I shopped again at Walmart and picked up things, still forgetting milk...But we were not coming straight home, so that is okay...Ron and I stopped for dinner at a restaurant we don't get to frequent too often... He had a Fish fry and I had steamed shrimp...Boy, was that good.
We got some sad news again today. Our SIL, the one who had the heart value surgery, now has cervial cancer and needs radiation....She has just gotten finished with 12 weeks of therapy and now has to go every day for 5 weeks for chemo....Nothing but sad news this week....
Everyone take care and I will see you all for coffee..
Mary, so sorry to hear about your SIL. I can't believe they are telling you to come at 7:45 for an 8 am surgery. Here you have to be checking in at least 2 hours prior. Anytime my dad has his surgery (and there have been many in the past 2 years) he has to be there for 7 or 8 am and then he's finally in the procedure room or OR by 10 or 11. I couldn't imagine getting processed, admitted, changed and on the stretcher heading to the OR in 15 minutes. You guys sure have miracle workers in your hospitals ... or runners or something ... if the staff can get you processed, prepped all that fast. Here it would take them 20 minutes just to "inventory" your belongings and put them in a secure place. LOL
I've decided on tomato onion sandwiches for supper. I had googled it and search here on TOH. There was nothing here, but I found several interesting looking versions online. Some for marinading the tomato and onion slices for 30-60 minutes in balsamic vinegar & olive oil. Some for grilling the onions. Some for sauteing the onions in a fry pan. Some diced the veggies. Some sliced them. I love balsamic so I'm heading to the kitchen to slice an onion and tomato and let them marinade a bit. I have some nice Sour Dough Artisan bread. I can't wait. My mouth is watering already. I love tomatoes sandwiches on toasted bread - and although all the recipes I found showed 2 pieces of bread, I'm making mine open face - less bread that way! I can have two pieces of bread and twice the veggies.
Oh, a few of the recipes also added lettuce - so I think I'll put a layer on top and use it like my top "slice of bread". YUM!
Thanks for you all giving me the idea of what's for supper. LOL
Have a great evening.
it's late, but I know that hauke is still up.
Around here, we put Miracle Whip lite on 2 slices of bread, add sliced tomatoes and sliced onions, and cheese if wanted. My mom eats tomato sandwiches w/o the onion.
Slow at work and rained off and on all day which is much needed.
