Trying to get ready to go do some errands with TB. We have to go across the river to get his gluten free bread and some specialty items for me....mainly my organic unsalted roasted pumpkin seeds - my main munchy on my diet!

We also have to get my windshield wiper arm fixed, drop off all our soda cans and juice bottles at the recycling, do a Costco run and go to the deli. And I need to get some blood tests and an ECG for my angiogram in two weeks - hard to believe it is coming up that quick!

I think we are going to grab some tacos in there somewhere.

My mouth is still tender from the abscess, but the tooth is not aching and my sinuses are not pounding at the moment so it will be nice to get out and about.

I got tired just reading that.

Yeah, it looks like a lot of work when you see it in print!

Well, I phoned the bakery just to make sure they were open and place my order. They are already sold out of the bread for today. So that trip has been put on hold until tomorrow. That lessens things for today. Everything else is in our area so is not too bad. Except tacos....so we are doing Swiss Chalet or Nando's instead!

I haven't even heard of Downtown Abbey.

I just finished snowblowing... again.
Darn wind. It hasn't even snowed today and I'm getting 6" drifts in my driveway.

Oh, yeah! Only drawback is timing -- I saw the first two seasons on DVDs from Netflix, so all the episodes were close to one another. It's going to be really hard to wait a whole week in between shows.

Did you hear that Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley) says this is his last season? That's disappointing, but I wonder if it also means that Julian Fellowes plans to keep writing, and writing....sure hope so. That's some excellent writing.

Never heard of it?!?! Inconceivable!

Thank you Vit and everyone else. I knew my appetite would return sooner or later. This has happened before and more than once. It was just a matter of waiting it out. But I hate when it happens. I think part of the problem is stress. I have been through a lot these past months. And for me it was the loss of an appetite. The stress was even evident in my grocery shopping these past months. A minimum of groceries to get me through the month. I found myself tossing out food because it had been sitting in the fridge for way to long. Eggs that I bought in October. Tossed out in December. I can't tell you how many quarts of milk I allowed to go sour. So thick I couldn't even pour it down the sink. I stopped even buying milk.

I am now back on the road to FOOD! Clam cakes sound so good right now. I put the French's onions away. Otherwise they would be all gone by now. And next week I am going to make a big pan of Mac and Cheese with tomatoes. A very big favorite of the whole famiy. I also want to make an orange or lemon cake for my daughter. Anything 'citrus' in this family goes faster than an eye blink. I have to make a simple syrup and thinly slice a couple of lemons that I have in the fridge. I will simmer the simple syrup and cook the very thin slices of lemons until the rinds are soft and edible. They will go around the cake and on top and a decorative way. The cake is lemon flavored along with the frosting.

Yes, I am back. YEA!

Horrors! I would strongly suggest that you go to PBS and watch both seasons before next Sunday. It has to be some of the finest writing I have ever seen. At least watch Season Two. And it is Downton Abby. No "W" in the ton.

oops, I thought Kayelle had a typo.
See how much I haven't heard of it?

I just hope it is not the last season for Downton Abby. Perhaps he goes off to Africa and dies of some hidious disease. Poor Mary.
