Cheryl, I think next week is the last of the season, but it would be great if you could watch from the beginning of the season (The network site should have them).

I am up once again with my cough. The codeine seemed to stop working so I have stopped taking it and am taking the regular cough syrup. It works, but every time I lay down, or even lay back partially in my recliner, it starts up again. I am sipping on a hot lemon and honey now and hoping that does it.

Violet is lying her beside me as tight at she can get. Monkey is curled up in a ball on my desk and they are both fast asleep. It is so nice that they want to stay close when I am not feeling well.

LP, I have no idea if it works, but one of my FB friends recently posted a link to an article that claimed pineapple juice is five times as effective as cough syrup. I just Googled "pineapple for coughs" and got lots of articles about the benefits of pineapple juice for respiratory problems.

Just got back from grocery shopping. It wasn't raining when I went into the store but it sure was pouring when I came out. I had left the umbrella in the car of course. Oh well, getting soaked will either kill or cure my cold.

Just put a chicken in to brine for dinner tonight.

Then had to sign-up SO and myself for access to new health info accounts because our doctor's practice (we have the same Dr.) has become part of a larger medical group. Now we have to create accounts with that group's website to be able to track our medical information, test results, email communications, etc. online.

Shortly I'm off to get my grandson from school. My daughter signed him up for baseball and he will have his uniform with him tonight for team pictures. I'll grab some pics so SO can see him dressed in it.

I'm watching the Vikings extravaganza on The History Channel. I don't know why they've been advertising the season finale all week on different channels and not the marathon they are running. We all know when the finale is. All I had was a hunch they would run the past episodes one of these days. Oh well.
They are just about done with season one.

I just got back in from outside.
Remember those robins? Well they've been hanging out by the porch since I started setting stuff in their way of building their nest. I've been looking here and there because I know they must have it closeby, but I haven't seen it... until a little while ago. There's a robin's nest laying on the driveway that the winds found for me.

Just got off the phone with the realtor/property manager, and I think we have a buyer for Mom's house! I accepted their counter offer. I feel a wave of a mix of nostalgia and sadness, but it sounds like this young family will love the house as much as I did growing up in it.
