Wonderful Wednesday!

The sciatica is still with me but I think I'm getting used to it. I'm down to about 1 or 2 Tylenol at night before I go to sleep and my right thigh is still numb but....it could be worse!  I have been managing to stay busy.  I went to Walmart Monday and decided to buy myself a frozen dinner since I knew I wouldn't  feel like cooking when I got home and there were no leftovers. 
 This was scrumptious!  No artificial ingredients and real butter and cream......YUMMO!
I was trying to take another selfie in front of my "cinderella" mirror......don't I look different than the picture from a few weeks ago?  I swear this mirror is magic!  Of course, I'm farther away too....that really helps! LOL!
Tomatoes for Friday night pizza.  This is the last year I am planting anything down here....too many bugs!  I sprayed a detergent water mixture but so many were destroyed by whatever.  I got 1 green pepper and that was from 7 plants!  No more!
Too bad I can't eat the flowers as they're doing really well! LOL!  This is my clemaitis that took over my one remaining clothes pole.  It was just a little sprig when I planted it several years back.
Hibiscus..........
and miscellaneous...........

 I got this in the mail today and realized it is Labor Day weekend coming up!  Big sales everywhere! 
Today was laundry, changing the sheets and I baked a chocolate cake that is cooling for tomorrow's frosting.  I made a pork dinner in the crock pot yesterday....some pork chops, a can of cream of chicken soup and a package of Ranch dressing and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.  Makes a nice gravy over potatoes and I had it with some organic green beans out of the can from Walmart.  Good dinner with little fuss.
I've manged to almost finish my little ghost washcloth......at this point he looks more like a little Frankenstein but hopefully that will change before he's finished.
I started joining my Maybelle squares until I realized I hadn't printed off all the instructions.....I need to do that.
a few more rounds on my Giant Granny...round 44 of 68 I think....I love these last few colors together.....
and on top of that I started a new project....a doily!  This is the pattern I have been searching for....I think.....we shall see..........I'm experimenting with the pattern and some Knit Picks Dishie worsted weight cotton.  It called for worsted weight.
I hope you're having a good week and everyone stay safe with the storms coming in!
Happy Trails!

    1. The sciatica really only bothers me when I lay down at night and first thing in the morning. The more I move the better I feel. I thought it was a pretty quick meal and easy. I hope you like it.
