A nice evening last night--the steaks were yummy! But note to self: don't buy anymore big ass potatoes! After a big salad and the steak, there was no way either of us could eat our entire potato. Bummer, too, because my favorite part is eating the skin. It's another lovely day, and tonight we'll be grilling some chicken.
Today's activity/project will be cleaning the gutters. I'll be assisting on this one, because Ken will be putting on gutter guards. This way I can stay down on the ground and hand them up to him, rather than him having to climb down and get them. Hopefully it will go quickly and easily, and we'll be done with it. Hey, our minds are in the gutter today! HA! Get it? In the gutter?
Do you ever get your back cracked? Usually I can do it myself, using the yoga move "The Spinal Twist." (As opposed to "The Spinal Tap," in which you crack your back by headbanging to heavy metal.) But the best way for me is when Ken does it. When I was working, he would do it every night, because I had so much tension in my neck and back. Since I've been retired, I haven't had to have him do it at all! But my neck has been bothering me lately--just sleeping weird, I guess. So when I was in the kitchen last night, he came up and hugged me, and it was time for a back crack. I put my arms around his neck and he lifted me off my feet, then sort of gave me a shake, and crack! Man, it was really loud last night! I said, "Thanks, Honey! I needed that!"
Who needs a chiropractor when you've got a Kenopractor?! Of course, any serious back problems should be addressed by an orthopedic physician (hope my pal Ellen is doing better!), and our little back cracking sessions are only for my routine tensions in my neck and back. It also assumes that you have someone who can lift you off of your feet--Ken is a foot taller than me, so it's easy for us to do!
