On the Mend

I'm looking forward to a day of rest tomorrow. Our daughter is going to watch the football game with some friends, so we are on our own. We could go and I may see if my husband wants to go over there wth her, but I just want my tv and sofa. Some zzzs in the afternoon would not go amiss and the house is clean. They are having gumbo over there, so I wouldn't have to feed them either. This is starting to sound like a plan.

Thanks to all of you for checking on me during this latest round of crud. Hopefully it will all go away soon..and I mean right away soon...not someday in the future soon. I want it gone right now if not sooner.

Speaking of Sooners, how are you doing Zebra7? Any new recipes? I haven't seen Pioneer Woman or read her blog in a good while, but you guys got a lot of snow up there. I haven't even been by to see Bossy....she isn't a Sooner, but she is funny as all get out.

NW1-I'm still not drinking any pepper sauce. Nope..not happening.

Arkansas Patti...that book is a goodun. I enjoyed it a lot.

Steph-I tried to get to your blog, but my server is acting odd tonight and I couldn't make it. I've lived in chaos with kids and dogs and cats and horses for so long I don't really know what serenity is, but to me it is to manage when you do have all that to care for and smile and invite you in for a Co Cola and to sit a spell.

Yvonne, we can can a bag of oranges...maybe that would make us feel better.

Melli-I hope this is a snow you can enjoy. Have fun at church.
Stay warm, my friends and I'll see you tomorrow.


  1. I hope you have a restful week-end,
    and that your wish to feel better NOW is granted.
    I wish I was in Spain with the orange trees, it's a beautiful sight when all the oranges are blooming.....plenty of vitamin c.

    Take good care of yourself.

  2. LOL! Church is CANCELED girl! We are buried! Dennis has a friend with a bigger plow coming by this afternoon to do our driveway... our road finally got plowed late last night. But I don't have anywhere I need to be, so all is well!

    I had completely forgotten it was Super Bowl Sunday today... I don't even know who's playing! LOL!

    Hope you feel better - NOW!

  3. Guess watching the Super bowl in a croud would be brutal on a sore throat.
    Enjoy a quiter version of the day.

  4. Melli,
    You know..they canecelled church here at Christmas when we had our blizzard. I don't ever remember that happening before.

    Yvonne and Arkansas Patti...I really do feel better today. Just woke from a nap while my daughter watched the worst movie ever made.
    We are going to watch the Super Bowl here on our own so we don't have to do anything.

  5. Glad you are improving and can put the pepper sauce away if you have any. HA kidding it works. I maintain long ago I cauterized my stomach lining so I tolerate the stuff. In TX I used to ask for the hotter dip for tortilla chips than the usual one served.

    Today I caught my husband putting Italian pepper flakes which have heat of their own, on some very delicious BBQ we brought home from church. He rarely eats anything hot and fusses when I apply the heat of any kind except temp.

    He even ate some Tex Mex Firehouse Chili I made last Sunday when he and other church members shoveled snow. I turned down the heat a tad by adding extra beans.

  6. NW-1,
    You are kind to your husband. Mine isn't a fire eater,either. When I'm well....I eat lots of spicy things...however, I've reached the age that I don't have to try to impress anyone by eating the hottest peppery stuff. Some I like, but the habeneros can stay where they are. (I forgot the alt for the tilde over the n).

  7. As I've aged I eat less "heat" and haberneros were never a part of my cupboard. Their capacity to burn the outside skin, even more than jalopenos, convinced me to not tempt the heat devils.

    When I serve anything hot, I provide milk as a quick antidote. That works miraculously in a few seconds if a person is uncomfortable.

    Further since his recent gall bladder surgery, I've noticed husband's GI distress results in many trips to bathroom-Montezuma's revenge.

    I rarely have MR but it is not pleasant. I have no gallbladder but I lost my over 30 years ago and my GI system has adjusted.

    I do have a heart.........
