I have been taking my Vicodin all day today. I get so much work done. But that is not the reason I have been taking them. My spine has really been hurting since I got up this morning. And every time I start a job, it just makes it worse. I have been tackling small jobs I have been wanting to do for a while. I just finished cleaning and rearranging two closets. I am done for the day!

Just got done having a butter, bacon and tomato sandwich for lunch. Did the dishes and am now going to spend the afternoon watching on Netflix, Sherlock: Series 1: Disc 1. It includes "A Study In Pink and "The Blind Banker". This series is from England. I think I will have a cup of tea while I am watching. :-)

It is my birthday so my brother and his girlfriend treated me to the carvery - roast dinner. The one I go to does real roast potatoes (not fobbed off with the deep fried stuff), 3 types of roasted meats (can have slices from each) a great selection of vegetables cooked to perfection, crackling, stuffing and gravy...oh, and of course you get to go for seconds of all the veg.

I then spent the sunny afternoon in a nearby national park; there's a spot I go to that is fairly secluded...a wooded area with a stream.

I collect dust. It goes well with my Early American Yard Sale decor.

I learned this from tinlizzie and it is spot on!

There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse. Quentin Crisp

Taking a wine break. I've been busy in the kitchen most of the day. Made a batch of Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies, took some to my brother a couple of blocks over, bagged up some for my daughter and grandson, and saved some for me. She and my grandson are coming over for dinner so I've been preparing yummies, and cleaning up the kitchen as I go so I won't have to do much cleanup later on.

What are you doing?

Potted up and trimmed the plants I'll be bringing indoors for the winter. Pulled a bunch of poison ivy. Picked some more apples, and got bitten up by thrips. Apparently we have 4 seasons here, winter, gnats, mosquitoes, and now thrips.

Dashing in to mention that my rugby team (London Irish), played away to Leicester today and won - for the first time in over 10 years!! Woohoo!

And now, off to bed. Night all!
