I'm taking a breather from cleaning out my gardening shed and also putting the first coat of spray paint on my too-blue 55 gal. rain barrel. I hope a more neutral color will help hide it. I bought a Dutchman's Pipe Vine to attract butterflies and now can't figure out the best place to plant it. The nurseryman said I'll need to protect it from frost this "winter." I know most of you folks have just put your gardens to bed, but I've waited all sticky summer long to get back in the yard and am pretty happy with this weather. Finally. Plus this Friday marks the welcome end of this year's hurricane season.

I have turkey stock simmering away on the stove. It smells fabulous in here. I'm also starting to put up Christmas decorations.

There is a technician at the BMC lab that is totally lacking in personality or empathy. I think she gets perverse pleasure from her job. Any time I need to have blood drawn, I always tell the doctor I will have it done at Winthrop.

I am sitting here getting very upset with myself. Stuffing is my favorite of any holiday meal. This year my daughter even had extra stuffing so that when I brought a dish home, there would be more of that than anything else. So tonight I had some with gravy. I realized that I hadn't eaten very much of anything since Thursday's dinner. So I heated up a little bit of the stuffing and gravy. I got half of it down and then all of a sudden I couldn't swallow what was in my mouth. I don't know why, I just couldn't eat it.

Here I go again. I hate when this happens. Specially when it is something I really like. So I will have to go back to baby steps again. A mouthful here, one there. Trying to work up to two or more. I wish I knew what this is all about and why it happens. It is not a physical thing. I can swallow liquids with no problem. And I can take real small bites. Like just a taste. I just feel overwhelmed when there is a lot of food on my plate. Today is Monday and I hope by Friday I will be back to eating right.

When the doctor used the word "anorexic" it really shook me up. I know I am not anorexic, but I hate when this happens. I can't figure it out. Right now I am thinking of making some corn chowder. It is another favorite dish of mine. It is one of those dishes, that every time I open the fridge, I have to take some. And it is mostly liquid.

Have you ever had a swallowing test done? Have you talked to your doctor about it?
