Treated myself today and bought some Rainier Cherries. They are so good.

Getting ready to drive myself across the river (on a horrid bridge) to my respirologist appointment. It is way hot today, I can not have my inhalers until after the appointment and I am nervous about the drive.

So, to treat myself to a job well done, I am going to my favourite store and buying these amazing English style sausage rolls for my lunch afterwards!

Taking a short break in my recliner before I bring the daughter to voice lessons then I'm off to the pool for deep water class. It does wonders for my bad knees.

DH drove me in as I was pretty shaky and I coughed all the way there and all the way through the appointment. My oxygen levels are fine but my breathing tests were low so I unfortunately am back on prednisone for a week. I also have to wean off my anti-inflamatory because it is hampering my asthma. Just when I was thinking I was getting done with doctors....

We grabbed tacos on the way home because we were way late for DH to get to work. He made it on time, but was a bit rushed. What a great man I am married to that he puts me first!

I need to take things easy the next two weeks because I have been taken off all my arthritis meds until surgery on the 25th. I don't have much of consequence planned for the next two weeks because I know I'll be very uncomfortable and will have little use of my hands. Plus my arthritic right knee will certainly make its presence known.
Katie have you considered covering the dirt in the pots with a couple of layers of burlap? Soak them really good when you are watering your plants. It will help hold in the moisture in the dirt.

Katie,
so glad you've decided to get your hands fixed. Any surgery is no fun but a life filled with pain is no way to live either. Good luck I'll be thinking of you.

Give him a big hug, he is truly a great man. Glad you got one who loves you so much.

I just read that Marion Cunningham has died. She was 90 y.o. She helped and rewrote the Fannie Farmer's Cookbook. Also wrote some cookbooks of her own, including The Breakfast Cookbook.

She was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.

I thought Marion Cunningham was Richie and Joanie Cunningham's mother...
