Sometimes ....

you just have to laugh.  With all else happening, we tore apart the bedroom for a good cleaning from walls to floor to corners to bedding.  I washed the HVAC registers and put them in the sun to dry.  When Mark asked for them to reinstall, I walked out a door I rarely use, could not see in the sun, and failed to lift my bare foot for the raised deck.  It's not bad enough that my ankles are fat and shapeless, now they are swollen and skinned from the wood's edge.  And about those fat knees, the swollen sides are making my jeans awfully tight.  At least the highly padded hip isn't any larger, not much room for growth there.  The good thing?  I jammed my left wrist trying to break my fall so the right is ready to go when the eyes allow stitching.  See?  Look for the bright spots.  We had a chuckle this evening about it all.

More good news - I tried a trick I found online and can now get my gmail imported again.  And it did.  All 14,578 emails since the beginning of time.
 
Carole offered to make a very easy and luscious frozen treat for the weekend.  It makes two loaves (bread pans) and uses crushed pineapple, frozen strawberries, bananas, Eagle canned s/c milk, and Cool Whip.  You freeze it and slice it for a very refreshing dessert.  I'll list the recipe (it's not the fluff one) if someone is interested.  Great to have in the freezer for unwanted unexpected guests.  Unfortunately, mine never lives more than a day.

Oh Marly! If i's not one thing, it's another! I hope it all heals quickly for you. I'm still feeling the effects from a fall during the summer. My shoe got caught in a crack in the driveway as we were carrying a huge bag of grass clippings to the car. I went flying into the lawn, face first! And, all we can do is laugh about it!
I'm so sorry to hear that your eyes aren't improving. You're in my thoughts. I'm reconsidering the flu shot this year.
Take care. Cherie in WI

Oh No, Marly! But yeah, at least your right wrist is OK. If your eyes give you a break (oooo maybe that's bad choice of wording?) you could stitch. I hope you feel better soon.

I think I've had that salad, and it *is* good, *almost* like ice cream. Even if it does have bananas. I wonder how it would work with other fruit in place of them?
