Just doing laundry and household stuff while I'm waiting out a rain delay in Cleveland, pushing back the start time of the home opener. Meanwhile, I might start on prepping foods for snacks and supper tonight.

Our afternoon games usually start around 3 p.m. But because of all the festivities happening, we started at noon and still was late starting the game. But the ceremonies were nice to watch.

I'm sitting on the porch soaking up the Vitamin D. Time to head to the back yard and plant some veggie seeds.

Tax, I will look for the advanced healing bandages. Right now DH and I buy different bandages. He buys the cloth stretchy things, and I buy the cheapest generic ones I can find. That's a good thing, because of where my cut is on a weird angle, I have to use 3 of them to keep it covered.

When I saw the price of the finger cots I nixed that idea. My little glove fingers are working out just fine. I have this box of hospital gloves from when I had my surgery and needed all the wound packing. Ok, so it looks like I have a mini condom on my thumb. It's a conversation starter for sure! LOL I'm hoping this is healed in time to cook Easter dinner. People are counting on me.

Hmmm, I thought we were going to see a picture of you sun bathing, not some plants and seed packets!

Carol, the quick heal adhesive bandages seem pricey. But, you leave them on for 2 - 4 days, so you don't use as many of them as the ordinary kinds. They don't get soggy in water.

I wouldn't have gotten through culinary school without them, between burns and cuts. We all used them with a glove or cot over top when we were cooking.

I'm trying to get the energy to get to Costco before the madding crowds. I only have a few items and want to get in and out as quickly as possible. But it is looking more and more unlikely as they opened 10 minutes ago. I'm glad they are only 5 minutes away.

Carol, the reason I prefer the cloth stretch bandages is that they stay on when they get wet. Even living alone and cooking for one, I'm constantly getting my hands wet, so with the plain bandages I have to rebandage all over again and again.

Using the rubber gloves is keeping my bandages from getting wet. I am changing the bandage every day. My cut has reached the ugly stage, but is no longer bleeding. Very little soreness. I wipe it with an alcohol swab, apply some neosporin and put on my three cheapy bandages. I leave the rubber glove finger off for a while until I need to get my hands wet. If I see the least little sign of infection I'm heading for the DR. office.

Sitting up in bed with a cup of tea and a blueberry New York Bagel Company bagel in my hand. The latter sounds cosmopolitan but is actually made on an industrial estate in Rotherham, Yorkshire! The blueberry tastes a bit artificial - in fact it tastes downright peculiar. Don't think I'll buy them again. Decided to have an early night but kept hearing the beginning of really interesting programmes on the radio so it's now 2am!

Night night, all
