After work I went to aqua chi class the off to Mass. Just got home I have no appetite for supper, that is very rare, so I settled for a nice sweet clementine. Relaxing with a tall ice water before bedtime.

This is opening day for a large farm market about 1/2 hour away. I've been waiting since April for it to open back up because that's the only place I can get the German rye bread I discovered shortly before the market closed up for the summer. Buttered, toasted rye. Excellent!

I just got back from shopping. We left at seven a.m. My left leg is hurting from the hip down. And I took two Vicodin. Another arse ache to have a look see.

My son (bless his heart) put all my groceries away. Now comes the baking. I have to make eight minit cranberry pumpkin loaves, two regular size ones. cookies. I also have to prepare the meats for the freezer. Then I have to do laundry. It is going to be a long day. But you know, I am in a good mood and have already turned the oven on for preheat. I very rarely eat breakfast. I think I need to today. I have a nice thick slice of liverwurst. That will be my breakfast. Love that stuff! Well, off to work. See you late tonight.

It is a rough life, but I try to survive it. I really have great kids. My youngest keeps an eye on my health issues. My oldest daughter is taking me to the hairdresser tomorrow to get my hair cut. In spite of her own problems right now with the brain cancer, if I don't call her, she will call me to make sure my oldest son is looking after me. And my middle son, who drives a cab at night, will stop by with a ten dollar bill if he has had a good night and some trips to Logan Airport. Those trips are always a guarantee for a big tip. And if the Boston Symphony is coming in, sometimes he get a trip going to Maine. Considering there are more than 100 members landing, the Airport puts out a call for all cab companies. The out of state fares guantee at least a fifty dollar tip. More often more. The best trip is to Rhode Island. That is a 45 minute trip and gives him time enough to get back to the airport and get back in line for another.

Yes, I have great kids. I wish ever elderly person had kids like mine.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm pricing winter tires and I have to go check what size my current tires are.
