Just noticed that this will be #835. Who knew that I'd have this much to say over the years?
I've had a terrific cold this week. Yes, in the summer. Go figure. I won't point fingers, but some friends of mine had a cold when we were camping last week. But since I'm so kind and thoughtful, I won't mention who they are... I'm either blowing my nose, wishing I was blowing my nose, sleeping, or wishing I could sleep. I think I'm turning a corner on the tissue today.
Son #1 saw a wonderful allergist this week. This doctor is as concerned about the wheezing, breathing, sneezing, stuffy-head symptoms as we are. He spent 45 minutes in the room with us asking and explaining. He gave us nearly $400 in samples. I'm thankful for 2nd opinions.
Daughter #2 made bread yesterday under my watchful eye. I must say she did as good as I could do. And she didn't forget salt (like I did last time). She wasn't feeling very trustworthy of my culinary ability after the last snafu and said, 'I'll just make it myself so it turns out good'. Self-confidence is a good thing.
Cooking in the summer is a delight. Fresh corn, beans, cukes, grilling. Mmmm. I found Pioneer Woman's cookbook at the library yesterday. I've enjoyed her snappy way of writing again. I'd love the book, but cookbooks sit on shelves at my house and I 'Google' recipes constantly.
Speaking of 'Googling'. I was going to look up "when should I neuter our kitten". But after I typed in just "when should I"... the top choice was ..."get married". Seriously? Someone actually Googles that question? No wonder divorce rates are 50%!
Someone reads this blog from Kenai, Alaska. I don't know who you are, but I looked up your fine city and immediately could tell I would like to come visit you. Someday. Especially if I was invited.
Well stand by. My head is completely empty except for the nagging congestion left over from my virus. Next week we'll start with post #836. But who's counting?
