Pausing and enjoying a cup of tea before I start up with baking (Me baking? Why yes, I do once in a while). My plans were to garden again today. When I woke up it was completely overcast, chilly for the kneel-down weeding I had planned today, and my shoulders ached from yesterday. A fleece top and an ibuprofen would take care of the cold and ache, but what to do about the clouds? Mom Nature decided for me - it started to sprinkle.

I've pulled out all my ingredients for scones. Making the ubiquitous orange-mini chocolate chip one, plus trying an oatmeal currant one that I'll sub cranberries instead. Tea is gone, so that means it's time to measure and mix.

Frank and I are home for almost a week now

this week we got the confirmation of cost coverage and now we have to find a rehabilitation... seems it's not that easy as we hoped for...

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!

Glad to hear you are home, Cara. How is Frank feeling? I am glad you got costs covered. I hope you can find rehabilitative care close by and soon. You both continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm getting ready to go out with my friend to get some plants and other garden stuff. She is having a rough time of it lately and TB and I helped her out a little financially so she is repaying by putting my garden together for me in a way that will be easy for me to keep up. She loves gardening and is great at it. I on the other hand....
