Good morning here from UK! Guess most of you are still in bed since this site seems mostly US based. Drizzly rain here but welcome (for the garden) after 3 intensively hot days.

I was planning on going to the monthly food market but, with the rain, it will be cancelled. It has artisan bread, a cheese stall, hot snacks and some veg.

Today I am visiting my mum in her nursing home. I used to be her full time carer, in her house, for 2 years up until quite recently. Her health condition became such that it was no longer manageable. We did a lot of research and found her the best local care home where the staff are attentive and she is content there.

Good morning everyone. Sitting in the E.R. with my mom. She's having really bad pains in her stomach and back so we're getting it checked out.

Good morning everyone. A lot cooler today, it's only 63, with showers expected for the next two days. I am going down to our farmers market to gets some tomatoes, zucchini (for some bars) and radishes. The sweet corn is supposed to be ready on the 11th or 12th. Can't wait.

I hope your mother is sorted now and that it wasn't anything serious.

Update - Mom has a U.T.I, she's dehydrated, and some upper abdomen inflammation - maybe an ulcer. She's admitted, has an IV and on pain medication as needed. We're watching a DDD marathon on TV until I need to head home to take care of the "Evil Mojo Jojo" - aka the cat.

At least she is now in the right place and being treated. Hope it's not an ulcer.

You're right, Creative. I hope it's not either. She ate a good breakfast, got washed up and it sitting in a chair watching Sunday Morning on CBS.
