Glenn and I just came inside after riding around the property and pond on the 4-wheeler and, then, a couple of hours sunbathing and cooling off in the pool. The beauty of living where we do is that the sunning and time in the pool was done in our birthday suits. It was sooooo relaxing and the warm sun was a tonic for our arthritic joints. Wish we could do this in the wintertime.

I'm so mellow right now and my skin feels fantastic. Can't wait for tomorrow and the next day, and the next day, and...

Any planes flying overhead and swooping down for a closer look?

I am trying to get my volcano cake carved and covered in fondant while battling severe pain from a sinus infection that is involving my teeth, jaw and giving me a migraine.

The doctor at the clinic said it was a toothache and wouldn't even look or give me antibiotics and I know my dentist will say it is my sinus and it is up to the doctor to treat it. I like both doctors but really just need some help. I had some narcotics on hand and hate taking them but was desperate. They gave me a half hour sleep but no pain relief. Once it settles down I am okay unless I talk, eat, drink or move around too much.

Thankfully my neighbour is helping me in the evenings with the cake and I have until noon tomorrow.

At least a volcano doesn't require perfect carving!

Don't think so but, for sure there's a reason for those little bags that are available for a "certain" purpose.

Actually, it's rare that we hear or see any aircraft here. Occasionally a military craft will fly over going to Ft. Campbell, but most of the time we have little to no skyward activity. Quite unlike the environment I was used to when I lived in Washington, DC. I definitely do not miss hearing/seeing the Medivac choppers buzz like insects overhead. It's quiet and serene here. Amen!!!!

We do Ads, but during the day we dont have it on as we are always pretty busy and moving around

We usually put the heating on at around 3pm when it starts to get really, really cold

Also here in the computer room, if we shut the door, it gets nice and toasty in here as the 2 pcs are running, lots of warmth

I didn't get as much done on the volcano cake as I wanted, but it is all set to have fondant in the morning. The beauty of this cake is the more "mistakes" you make, the better it looks! I managed (without trying) to get one side very straight and steep, and the other side from it is more gradual. This is something I noticed in a lot of volcano pictures I looked at.

I did end up going to another clinic and they gave me antibiotic and said yes, it is definitely an infected sinus and it is causing pain in the tooth, jaw and head. I am supposed to get lots of rest and fluids. Yeah, right. As soon as I finish my cake order
