we took this picture of the grand kids awhile back. they had on their Christmas sweaters. they got them from their aunt for a picture.
I walked on the tread mill yesterday. it was a bit cold to be outside. next two days will be in the 50s. I will hit the road then. my fitbit lets me know every night that I did’nt meet my 10,000 steps a day goal. it also nags me to walk every hour. I wonder if its from the rez. well I did make my goal once. only had my fitbit less than a week.
this Friday I am signed up to give my red blood cells. I have been doing this for the past 6 or 7 years. the blood drive is at the clinic umm i mean health center. once I get to doing something it becomes a habit. then I do it out of habit.
i have been making a gallon of indian tea lately. I drink it up and make another. I am counting it as my water intake. them old Indians always said it was an all around tonic. I will run out by spring. I will have to go out and pick sacks full so I can drink it year around. I am drinking plenty of water too. again I don’t meet the 64 ounces a day goal. don’t matter I am drinking more water.
they having a craft and bake sale at the senior site this Friday. I will go check it out after I give my red blood cells. one of my old friends is selling pies. I have bought a few from her. I will also look for fresh baked bread. it is always good. i will pass on the cakes and cookies. Mary is undecided if she will have a stand.
the casino gift shop is also having sales. it is held every per cap. I see if they got any new Pendleton cups to add to my collection. I didn’t plan on having a set of them. I got a few as giveaways. they added up, so I started to buy them myself. tho they are called Pendleton, they are made in Thailand.
i ordered some christmas presents the boys wanted off amazon. I don’t like shopping. I asked them what they wanted in case santa asked me. they went along with it, knowing its misho n gramma that get the presents. not santa.
yesterday I made some mish mot. most know it as menudo. I had some beef tripe (cow stomach) in the freezer when we de-iced it. I fixed it yesterday. I have two bowls of it last night. I will reheat some of it this weekend. some say it is better a few days later.
the critter that killed my hens hasn’t come back yet. I assume it is dead. once a critter starts killing chickens, they don’t stop until we get it. I am glad it hasn’t come back. I gotta have fresh eggs. thats why I raise chickens. I don’t raise them for critters to eat.
i will split some more wood today. I make sure it is easy to get the fire going. dont have to mess with splitting it for kindling. we can keep it going that way. I have more outside that needs to be tossed into the basement. I will do that on a nice day.
