Pink Saturday 10/23/2010 and a Refurbished Lamp

A hint at what I'm working on today.

Again, I apologize for not leaving any comments, but as I've said, my health is the most important thing at the moment. I hope to be back within the next couple of months blogging more. It usually takes me several times sitting at this computer to do a post for Pink Saturday. Prayers are gratefully accepted and appreciated.

Also I have a request. Last monday at physical therapy I heard the song Achy Breaky Heart for the first time ever. It reminded me of a song in the 80s that we used to jazzercize to in class. It had that kind of beat but I can't remember the words or the name of the song. I know this seems like a worthless cause but I cannot get the song out of my head and the words won't come to me. I just loved that beat to jazzercize to though. Can anyone think of a song with that beat? And no, it wasn't Achy Breaky Heart. We didn't do country/western in San Francisco Bay Area at that time. Sorry.

Some of you might be interested in knowing how I'm doing, maybe not, but I'm going to tell you anyway. :-) I'm doing great! I haven't exercised this much in years and I need to make an embarrassing confession. While this has been going on and I'm exercising diligently 2x a day, every single day except for sundays as it is a day of rest for us, I decided to get out some DVDs I had a woman make for me from some old tapes I had. When I put the DVD on my Mac iBook I thought I'd just sail right through it for at least part of the 60 minute video. I got 10 minutes into it and just about had a heart attack! Very embarrassing. I told hubs that I couldn't go anymore. That was very embarrassing but he said, "It's 10 minutes more than you did yesterday, which was zero." He's right. There has to be a beginning for everything. So I've been trying the treadmill for the last few days and that's much better for an old lady to start out on. You'll be apprised of my progress henceforth.

I'm going to ramble for a minute or so. You KNOW how opinionated I am and how certain things just set my teeth on edge, right? Well, yesterday I was "visit teaching" a woman in our ward (this is a monthly thing we do in our church to visit and see if they need anything or to help with anything they might need and also to bring the spiritual message of the month.) During the visit her cell phone rang and she answered it. Now, she has voice messaging just like the millions of other cell phone users but she chose to answer it. It didn't sound like something she couldn't have waited to talk about until we had left. I was frothing!!! The look I had on my face could have peeled the wet off water! I know my face had to show my anger to my companion. I never, ever answer the phone when someone is visiting with me. THEY are more important than just about anything that could come over a phone line. I always let it go to message. What is wrong with us that we don't acknowledge the people in our presence as being as important as those that call us? If she had been waiting for an emergency, that would have been different. I'm talking about someone who just wanted to chat and she probably knew that. Please, women, give your attention to someone in your presence who has come to visit with you.

This lamp is one I did many years ago in white but I decided recently I wanted it more pink. I'm also doing projects I can stand up doing instead of sitting. This is, of course, driving me nuts! But hopefully it won't be much longer before I can sit with a modicum of comfort.
