We've been busy around here...here's my new (to me) car. A 2001 Honda Accord. Deep dark green. I love it. Just got it last night. (Hurray!! I don't have to drive his truck anymore. )
I have a cheesecake in the oven to take to tomorrow's morning meeting. My friend Brad is bringing a chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting and I am bringing a cheesecake. We will be celebrating my 24 year sobriety birthday (which was actually yesterday) and I am grateful and humbled by all the help I have gotten over the years and still get every day from the other people in this program. The beauty and blessings of this way of life are not lost on me.
We are moving slowly through the days of the Irishman's recovery. He is feeling a little better every day, which makes it even harder for him to do nothing, of course. lol Luckily, he has just enough pain still that it keeps him going slow. If he can keep from becoming too worried (about money) and depressed, we will be okay I think. It's hard for anyone, and especially a man used to working all the time, to sit around doing nothing for hours on end. And too, his muscles are sore and aching from atrophy. He's not supposed to lift his arms over his head. No bending, lifting, twisting. Still cannot lay down to sleep either, so he's not getting very rested. Bless his heart...
The garden is in and we have had so much rain it's ridiculous. On top of that, the temps have been in the high 60's and low 70's...VERY unusual for Illinois in mid June. The plants out there all look healthy enough, so we'll keep our fingers crossed.
Other than that, life is lazing along on Honeysuckle Hill. All the critters are well, all the people are happy and everything is right in the world. We also celebrated our 22 nd anniversary together yesterday. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and sometimes it seems like a hundred years. lol That's the way of it, I guess. We are holding hands and walking together into old age. It's a blessing.
Sounds like the dryer has stopped. Only a couple of loads of laundry and tonight we are out for a special treat. Going to a concert in our local college town to see Janis Ian...a singer I have loved for over 40 years. Had I known all that was going to happen I might not have bought the tickets, but I didn't, so I did. lol I'm glad. It was kinda my birthday present to myself. That's at 8 tonight. I have PT at 2:30 and needed to get this cheesecake baked early so it can refrigerate long enough. Been up since 5...didn't actually get out of bed til a little after 6. Feel like I could easily take a nap right now. lol I have to stop by the insurance agent either before or after the PT (same town--about 15 miles from here).
I'll be back...have a grand weekend all.
