I'm going to dig up the basil, pot it up, and bring it inside. It worked really well last year, had fresh basil and cilantro all the time. Then there's a couple of big dracaenas outside in the planters I save year to year, along with the elephant ear bulbs. Just wish it would warm up enough to comfortably do so.

I went to join my daughter for the parade. There is a friend of hers that every time there is a parade, she puts on the biggest feast. Anyone can walk in off the street and eat to their hearts content. I had a sausage, Was only able to eat half of it before I started to get sick. It wasn't the sausage, it was me. I knew what was coming. So I made a mad dash home. I just got in the door and pressed the button for the elevator. Then it all hit me. I had to jump off my scooter and run into the laundry room and the trash can. Only this time it wasn't the dry heaves. I was so sick. I managed to make it to my apartment and lay down for a while. I might go back out in about an hour to see the end of the parade. And it is cold out. Yesterday beautiful weather. Today perfect for the paraders.

SO is doing some Fall cleaning in the LR so I'm helping by one-handed sofa moving and blind repair. (and supervision, which is not appreciated)

I'm trying to decide if I'm going to jump up and yell the next time there is a big play. Shrek has managed to sleep through this game, so far...it might wake him up...

We're going to go looking at microwave ovens and refrigerators. The microwave is urgent - ours is dead. We need a new fridge, but it isn't urgent. There are just too many choices when it comes to fridges. Does anyone know how much more energy efficient it is to have the freezer on the bottom instead of on top? Is it worth the extra money?

Did some prep for the dish I'm taking to MIL's tonight, now I'm messing about for a bit. I'll go do some laundry and maybe sit outside and enjoy the warm weather today.

This should answer your question.

Thank you for all the well wishes. Last night they admitted my daughter and operated to remove the cyst. Everything is alright the infection didn't spread and they drained it. They kept her overnight for observation. She came home a couple hours ago. She has meds and she is in pain but well.
