Tickle Me Tuesday...

 This is how I'm feeling tonight.  It has been a long couple of days, and I have been cleaning and painting and cooking and doing everything I needed to do to get ready for the inlaws visit.  And now it's all over and done. They are all in bed and will be gone by the time I get up in the morning.  We had a nice dinner and watched a movie and voila! it's done.  

  I dazzled them with a beautifully perfectly roasted chicken, with succulent chunks of roasted potatoes, carrots and onion. I drizzled them in olive oil and roasted them with some sea salt and rosemary.  I baked 2 of the finest looking loaves of french bread in my history of bread baking...they were perfect. We ate like kings.

  I cleaned my oven, did laundry and got the guest room all cleaned and ready this afternoon. I had to clean the oven because I spilled something in there that has been smoking up the whole house every time I turn it on. It was yucky....and I couldn't breathe for the smoke last time I used it.  Whatever it was, it wasn't burning off either. So---clean it I did, since I was going to have it going almost all afternoon.

  My knee was hurting so bad last night I had to get the ice packs on it. It was better today, but the sciatica started acting up, I guess from walking funny on the knee. Interestingly enough, when I put my knee brace on, it took the pressure off the sciatic nerve and it's only a little sore right now, and I've been on my feet all day.

  I'm pretty tired tonight, so I think it's gonna be an early one.  It's been grey and rainy all day, which never helps my energy level either.  I see the little weather icon flashing yellow on my toolbar.  Must be gonna storm....crazy thing is, it's 57 degrees at 11 PM.....the furnace hasn't come on once today.

  Thanks for all your wonderful comments and thoughts re: the death of my rooster.  It means a lot.

   Okay then...short and sweet on a Tuesday.  Signing off...

I'm most always hungry when I finish reading your blog! :)

God bring you just what you need for your health and well being!

From the sound of the sciatic relief when you put on the knee brace, you must be favoring it enough to put you out of kilter. Glad you've got something to help, and it sounds like you wowed them, no doubt. Now to get some rest and relaxation!

You did it!! You finished everything and even cleaned the oven. Your in-laws have to be pleased with the effort you made to get things nice for them.
