I'm sure the snow gods are planning something special to cheer you up!

Good luck!
Yes, I get to drag Shrek all around town later today for his eye appointment, I hope it has warmed up by then so the ice on the streets melts. We have been getting plenty of rain.

Thanks Aunt Bea!

Bored today, too cold to venture out so I decided to try my hand at sprouting some lentils, that took about 10 seconds, still bored!

So sorry, Princess!! Be sure you put something on your other foot. It wouldn't do to end up with both of them broken.

I'm still suffering with this nasty cold. Now that I'm taking the mucus medicine, I've learned it's not a good idea to cook. Because I'm getting so little sleep, I tend to fall asleep at my desk. This morning it was for a couple of hours. Not a good time to have something on the stove.

I don't feel like eating much anyway, so I'll just wing it with sandwiches and canned soup.

I'm going to try sprouting mustard seeds for my salads.

Take it easy Zhi, rest is best while laying down. Plenty of fluids.

I'm trying, PF. Bed rest would be lovely, but laying down comes with violent coughing fits. I did manage to sleep in bed last night for about 4 hours. I've already had a couple of "desk" naps today. Whenever I get to nodding, I take advantage of it.

I've closed down the kitchen to anything but nuking. I've got a couple of cheese spreads and some gazpacho to slurp on. I'm definitely into the pampering mode.

Dinner tonight will probably be either leftover hamburger onion pie, or chicken noodle soup from a can.

I have a stoopy Ogre with a torn retina. He was able to get in today for laser surgery on his eye. I can't walk and he can't see...what a pair.

I sure hope you feel better soon Zhi!

He was complaining about a huge floater that wouldn't go away and lots of little ones floating around like flies. I tried to get him to the eye doctor then, but he insisted on making an appointment. I took him today and his optometrist took him directly to the eye surgeon after one look. Apparently is was quite a large tear and the laser they did today may not work. If so, he will need to have the more intrusive surgery. I really don't want a blind Ogre hanging around, he loves to read and watch TV.
