I am in the middle of building some gun racks, then a little work (which is why I'm on the computer right now), then off to the store for some mushrooms. Then finish staining the racks and it's spaghetti sauce time.

I was out the door at 7 a.m. to go grocery shopping. The store surprisingly was crowded at that hour.

Last Monday, I slept for ten hours straight on my left side. When I woke up, my left thigh was in a lot of pain. On the top of the thigh, not the back. I am assuming it is because all the weight of my body was on that thigh. As I go through the day, the pain lessens with the help of two Vicodin as soon as I get up and don't lay down again for several hours. I am the type of person that doesn't move once I am sleeping. So all this week I have been falling asleep on my right side. Last night I must have turned over. When I got up this morning at 6 a.m. I took the Vicodin immediately as my thigh was really hurting. They never kicked in. My leg is still hurting as much as it was when I got up. I am beginning to rethink the cause of this problem. I am wondering if I may have a stress fracture. I am trying to work my way through all this. I don't want ANYTHING to interfere with my upcoming eye surgery. My surgery is schedule for the 18th. I will gladly go on the 20th to see what the problem is. I go for a followup appt. for the surgery on the 19th. As much as I hate to I just had to take 2 more Vicodin. And I will stay off the leg until they kick in.

But I need to get started on the cookie doughs.

Today I have to sew, at least five (aprons) are due to my friend tomorrow. And should work for at least a few hours to get ahead for the week since I'll be missing Thursday and Friday because of the surgery. Oh and I decided to put all my leftover celery in the dehydrator to see what I get. It might not turn out but then again, it might be okay. I have quite a bit left from Thanksgiving cooking.

The very first thing I do with celery is remove all the leaves and dry them in a warm oven. They are great for tuna salad and soups. I don't always use up the whole of the celery hearts that I buy. I would hate to lose those leaves. They have so much flavor. Let us know how the celerly turn out. I may try it in my oven if it works.

Thank you and I will! Honestly I was thinking I would have to discard the leaves. I think that if I get out to the store later, I might as well get extra onions and bell pepper to dice up and dry.

Yikes! Have you ever priced the cost of buying celery leaves? You can also freeze the onions and peppers raw. They are also very expensive when you buy them from the freezer department at your store. Anytime they are on sale, I stock up and usually have a couple of large zippy bags in the freezer at the end. I can't eat the peppers, so I buy them for my son who loves them.

Kat, your celery should dehydrate nicely. I used to do it all the time and use it in soups and stews. Like Addie, I still dry the leaves and then I crush them to use as seasoning. TB doesn't like raw celery, but I use it in so many things that I buy it and don't use it all.

I think now that I am very restricted on what I can eat for the next while I will buy some and keep celery sticks on hand.

I am about to put in an hours work on the craft room as we are moving one of the three extra recliners (all from Dad) in here so I can have a comfy chair. This means about a fourth redesign, but I am packing up all my cake supplies at least for the next six months (to give the no-sugar lifestyle a good try) so that gives a lot of room !
