Just lyrics to one of my favorite songs by the Carolina Chocolate drops. This trio is AWESOME. If you've never heard of them, check 'em out : http://www.carolinachocolatedrops.com/ They have recently added a fourth member it looks like. We saw them at the St Louis Art Museum last year and have 2 of their cds.
Just having a lazy Sunday morning at home, alone. I made some chicken and dumplings and baked a couple of biscuits and had some biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Artery hardening, fattening, lovely comfort food. Ahhhh.....chicken and dumplings for supper. Perfect.
To let you know about the balance in my life though (snicker) I did have a lovely vegan lentil soup yesterday for 2 meals, with homemade flax seed bread. Just sayin'....
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous and we're putting much of the garden to bed for the winter. I ate 3 edible pea pods today, and saw a few green beans. I still have the odd tomato ripening here and there and quite a few green ones on the vines as well. The turnips are flourishing and the kale as well. Autumn. A nice time to garden (for some things).
The boyo came by a few days ago and cleaned out the gutters for me. The roofing endeavor has been put on hold. We have a lot of things that need doing and spending several thousand dollars on a roof is maybe not the highest priority right now. Boyo went up and looked and said there were a few places that needed shoring up and some flashing that needs replaced. Himself agreed that it could probably do for now with patching it. They have to get up there and tear off some shingles and see.
I pulled the big muscle, lattisimus dorsi, I think it's called, in my back last Tuesday, I think I said. On Thursday morning I twisted again, moving the water bath canner to the sink and nearly screamed in agony. Pulled it even worse and could barely breathe. I stopped in at our little clinic, and the good doc gave me a shot of Torodol for the pain and a scrip for anti-inflammatories and a muscle relaxer. It was really painful and today it is better. Been sleeping a lot and taking it easy. I only take the muscle relaxer at night, as it knocks me out. lol I'm such a wuss....
It was a lovely weekend, all in all. The Irishman and I went to see Real Steel, the new Hugh Jackman movie. It was really good. I did some laundry (in 2 days) and hung it on the line to dry and just took it down today. Carefully. Doing things very carefully. lol
I might go have a short nap before leaving for MissB's house today. I'm really tired a lot, and have started taking my B complex again. I don't know if part of it might be the residual effects of the muscle relaxer? The doc wrote m,e an order for an MRI of the darn knee, and says I should go to a pain management place. I may have to...he also asked if I'd had a flu shot yet, and I replied "Not since 1978..." He looked at me skeptically and said we can do it here. I said No thanks, and he muttered "Chicken" at me as he walked out the door. I'll have to remember NOT to go see him if I get the flu again this year. lmao
Hope everyone has a grand and peaceful Sunday. Our St. Louis Cardinals have shown their stuff and are playing again tonight. Might just be on their way to the world series...got a wild card opportunity or something and have been doing great.
