Hope you all slept well..


I have been thinking about what to do and how I wanted to spend my Birthday.. I think I want to be away from the house for the majority of the day and save the movie for later part of day when I am reclining... but what to do..... I love the woods and wood love to go walking up and through the trails of Redwood park if Possible.... Maybe a picnic up in the woods! It is just really close to me.. a couple minutes drive and quite beautiful... I don't know how well a walker will do on the trail but maybe I can take a walking stick and do alright... I am supposed to be using the walker to walk with to stop my hip joints from grinding away as they are having terrible trouble with Arthritis when walking... I can walk fine without it just hurts something awful.. and I do tend to buckle at times when the grinding is bad..

But I bet the trail is pretty good with the dry weather... I wouldn't mind calling up a few parents and students to join me for the afternoon... I could see all my whittle babies.... YAYYYYYYYYYY! That would be fun too... We will see..

OK anymore legitimate ideas...

Has anyone here ever done those gravestone etchings.. where you lay the paper on the stone and do the etchings... I was thinking of doing my family etchings... My Mom My Dad, My sister My Brother My Grandmas etc.. I would like to get a engraving for my Auntie in New Mexico!... I had only met her a few times but she was terrific.. A lot like my mom.. I loved her...

Is that a weird thing to do for my Birthday?? It would be sitting down on the ground .. not much exertion.. and seems it would be safe enough.. and I would not be stuck in the woods without someones help if needed.... although I love the woods...

Does anyone know what the term for those rubbings are called...?

 15 more days actually.. Just wanting some good ideas .. thats all..!

Rubbing's eh.. well I did it in High school but I can't remember what type of pencil we used I thought we used charcoal  but can't remember! its been way back.. I think I still know someone who does that.. I will check!  The kids and I did it too at school, but its been awhile .. its easy if you don't push to hard.. The kids were funny as they always rubbed holes right into the paper...There would be nothing left but a humongous hole.. and white paper edges! LOL..hee hee..

Get a massage!  My niece is a massage therapist, and she does wonders for my arthritic knee.  Get a one hour session with someone who does deep tissue massage.

Hee Hee... I will take that as a compliment.....and thankyou very much Paul!

Hey... I went to buy a bottle of sherry for a new recipe and they carded me....
Lol..... I  said, "you got to be kidding!"  Then blushed and showed the young man my ID. I was feeling sort of giddy then saw a sign on the register that said.. "our policy says, you will be carded with any alcohol purchase regardless of  your age!  Thank you the management" Lol....
then I thought Oh bummer, I thought that was a very nice compliment!  Lol.....

I did a lot of rubbing when I was a teenager but not on gravestones!!!!!

Try wax crayons, they work nicely.

Crayons can look really awesome!

We have always done the gravestones.. They are really cool especially some of the ancient ones..
