Hope you're doing better with your iron now. Have you heard about the guy who got arrested in NN and then escaped from the cops with his handcuffs still on? I'd love to know how he managed that.

Have just had the sprinkler system on, giving the whole garden a good water as it has not rained her for about a week I think

Been out the front garden pottering around, so lovely out there

Cooked up a 1.8L (61 fluid ounces) batch of ice cream custard. Will churn and freeze the mix tomorrow.

My appetite is starting to come back. Still holding at 225#. I have not been eating as much protein lately. I keep thinking with only 1 kidney now I should be more careful about it. Still keeping my portion sizes small. It makes me feel the incision if I eat to much. Trying to keep a strong concentration on fruits & vegetables.
I got 2 freezers & a refrigerator scrubbed out today at home, then ran to the drug store & got a tuna bagel. I was done in for awhile after that. Had a couple of pain pills & a nap. Dh just put a pizza in the oven for supper.
Hope all is well with you & your family.

We are wanting to get our gutters cleaned, what a hassle trying to find companies that actually get back to you

I have phoned a couple of companies already and not one has got back to me grrr, I phoned one today, he got back straight away and has already been over for a quote but he didnt look very professional etc

So I have just phoned another company, they quoted a bit more than we were expecting over the phone, so I said I would talk to Steve about it, Steve said at least for that price it should be a good job (well, one hopes so anyway)...so I have called him back but now got his answering machine...grrrrr

I left a message, so hopefully he calls back soon and we can get these gutters cleaned once and for all

Watching my husband tally up the damage done to our car last night. As we were driving to the theatre awards function a young guy in a pick-up truck nearly T-boned us but, instead because of Glenn's driving skills, ran us off the road. Came close to rolling the car but avoided that and wound up jumping a big ditch and taking someone's mailbox off with our passenger side rear view mirror. Unfortunately, in doing so both passenger doors are roached, along with the mirror.

It's going to be a costly repair because our car is a big Lincoln and the paint is a stinker to match. Glenn says, if the insurance company gets involved, they will likely total our car. NOOOOOOOO!!! I love Speedy, named so because we acquired it so quickly. I'm hoping for the best. At least neither one of us was hurt.

We made it to the awards show and had a lovely time.

Goodness, Katie! I'm so glad you and Glenn are okay. That must have been scary.
