So far today's going quite smoothly. Breakfast was tasty and the kitchen is all tidied up after and I have a load of laundry finishing up in the washer. I know what I'm preparing for our evening meal. All this just after 10 a.m. Awesome.

Looks like I'll be able to go out to my studio and have a lovely "play" day. Tumble and Sally have really enjoyed having mommy all to themselves the last couple of days. I've enjoyed their company, too, but Sally gets a little invasive when I'm trying to concentrate on a task. Fortunately, she eventually gives up and goes off to her soft little bed and takes a nap.

Now here's hoping I can get some sleep.
Lemon juice and cider vinegar help break up kidney stones. You can make lemonade out of the lemon juice or a vinegar drink. I can handle 1/3 cup vinegar in 8 ounces of water.

Kidney stones are mostly calcium...put a calcium tablet in some vinegar or lemon juice, you will see it disintegrate.

Well, I am off to the doctor. Lemon juice, marshmallow root tea, cider vinegar, cranberry juice have been tried in abundance and the pain today is the worst it has been. We have calculated I have had it for almost a month now (because of my chronic pain, I deal with acute pain differently).

We are thinking it is more likely infection than stone, but shall see.

The cool change came through overnight and it is so nice and cool right now, lovely morning!

I have the whole house open and I have been out doing some trimming and weeding in the garden, so nice out there

Now heading out to buy Steve the new Kindle Paperwhite and a cover...since he bought me one, I want to buy him one too

Just did my first Craigslist transaction. Bought a used computer monitor from a nice gentleman.

I needed a cheap monitor for a media/file backup home server and this fit the bill. Used LCD for $15!
