No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

The Convention Is Upon Me!

"The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure." - Joseph Campbell


Today's quote so fits me. I want to say a hearty yes to the adventure of the convention but I also have had anxiety fill me for the past two weeks. As I wrote one email friend, "take a deep breath and take everything one minute at a time."

I received the box of literature from the co-chair week and a half ago. I have gone through everything, updating my literature list. This information will help the chairperson next year as to what was sold or the pamphlets taken.

I've had a phone call and an email from one person who wants to volunteer and they have a friend so there are two more to help out on Friday and Saturday.

I must remember to breath.

Walking Stats

Today was a non-walk day for the both of us. We have a mile under our belts. Both of us noticed we had more energy for the last two days.

Today when we woke up, both of us groaned. Michael groaned more so than me since he has not been walking on a more regular basis. However, we will be ready to take it up again tomorrow. If we feel well enough, we might go for the mile loop.

Although I didn't go for a walk, I did do some stretches. Does this count?

Tin Foil is a Wonderful Thing

Tin foil seems to have been around as long as I can remember. Handy stuff that foil is. When we received our new stove, my darling husband went and put heavy duty tin foil in the recessed areas around the burners. We cooked away for six months or more and I cleaned the sides, middle, grates, and burner tops.

The burner tops were spattered as well as the grates and the burners. I decided to clean these in a pot of hot soap water.

Meanwhile, Michael removed the tin foil on the stove. There had been some seepage but I sprayed it down with some Simple Green and let that sit for a little bit. When I went to clean the stove top, all the yucky stuff came right up.

I even used the Simple Green on the underneath of the hood. Yes, the housing authority looks at that during the annual apartment inspection. This was the only thing they mentioned on the report when they were through this year. While under the hood, I took out the light bulb and its cover and cleaned those too.

I may not be a daily cleaner but when I get going nothing is left untouched!

Happy cleaning.
