With bells on, apparently. We had a crazy night around these parts last evening. In the space of a few hours, it snowed like hell, thundered and lightning-ed, warmed back up, and rained buckets. One power outage, one bout of housekeeping, one corned beef and cabbage supper, one loaf of Irish Soda Bread, and one pan of bread pudding with warm vanilla sauce. Got the seed potatoes all laid out on the island on newspapers to sprout up a little so we can cut them and get them in the dirt in a week or so. Certainly a day that ran the gamut.
Today (and last night--weather induced??) my old knee is hurting again. It's depressing and frustrating, but I'm not giving up hope. I have PT and another injection today in a couple of hours. Starting this week I only go twice a week. Yay!!
Ran across a picture of Roxie out in the garden last night...I was verklempt. How will I garden without her this year? She sure loved digging out there along the edges of the beds...always careful never to disturb the plants. You could tell by watching her that she was born to dig..it was nirvana for her.
I am feeling very tender and fragile this morning and not sure why. Spoke with a friend who is in the midst of some serious family problems right now, my brother and sister-in-law are battling her brain cancer, and I have nothing really to complain about. I should be grateful. But I don't feel too grateful this morning for some reason. Time to step back and take a look, I suppose.
I am stopping by my cousins house to pick up the Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon tattoo trilogy. She says it leaves ther American version in the dirt. We shall see.
Okay. Time to get moving...a nice hot shower is calling my name and then I'll leave a little early for PT to run an errand or 2. Today's injection precludes doing much running afterwords. I think we'll eat up some leftovers tonight, or maybe I'll get home early enough to throw a turkey noodle casserole in the oven...something I've been threatening to do lately, but haven't done in a few weeks. Either way, we'll have plenty to eat.
It's a bleak and grey day out there, but reasonably warm (40). I've been to visit the chooks twice and retrieved an egg. Maybe once more before I hit the hot shower ?? Hmmm...
Happy Monday, y'all...hope it fills the bill for ya !
