             And Thursday means to me........ My Week Off.


    I am ready for it also.  Still fighting these darn mouth sores and feeling yicky.  Top it off I have a large swollen gland under my arm now today.  Getting really sick and tired of being under the weather.  I just know once the weather gets better I'll feel better.


   Rick made the best stew yesterday.  However not without suffering.  Cutting the potatoes he cut the top of thumb almost off.   Now I know what his secret ingredient is, LOL.  I really thought he should get stitches.  It was very deep and big.  But NOOOOOOOOO he wouldn't go.  So I patched him up and must say I did a very professional job,  weird of me, but I always did like applying dressings.  Now I can see the worst wounds imaginable at work but have it be someone I love, well it makes my heart twist.

   My friend was buried very early today.  I couldn't go because of work and it was out of town.  Everyone at work is bummed out about it.  He worked there for years and will be missed.

   This afternoon I went to get my haircut.  Make me look 20 years younger I said.  I'm not a miracle worker she replied but it really does look better.  I bet I look at least 20 days younger.  Then  I posted a few items, watched Soprano's DVD and am getting ready for bed.  I am so tired.  3 hours isn't enough.  I'll play catch up today.

   Hope everyone is doing OK today.  Spring is almost here.  Here, I'll share a spring picture I took.  Pretty soon we'll be smelling them.

What is it with Men? They never want to get stitches. Maybe they are afraid of the needles?? Hope his finger heals ok.
I'm sorry you are sick. What a way to spend your days off. I know you are ready for Spring and to be honest I've missed your bike ride stories!  I'm ready for bike ride pics!
Sleep well,

Sorry you couldn't go to your friend's funeral.  
Men (husband's) can be so stubborn sometime's can't they, LOL?
Let's have a pic of your new hairdo!
Can't wait till spring comes here, it won't quit snowing!

You really are having to put up a fight with this infection Julie. At least your glands are doing their 'knights in shining armour' bit for you.  I don't know how you have managed to keep on working recently.  I would have taken to my bed. Hope you're pumping full strength Vitamin C into yourself?  I'm a great believer in that.  As for 'Rick' type injuries? I hate any member of my family hurting themselves.  I don't know who feels more nerve ending pains ..them or me!  Lol!  Get well soon.    Maybe you can go and make a private visit to your friend and talk with him.  I've lost a few friends over the years and they are all in the same cemetary so I go visit them all together and remember the good times we had.

Mmmmm, finger stew is finger licking good!!  I wonder if the swelling is from one of your lymph nodes?  Mine always seem to pop up whenever I am not feeling good.  I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Ricks try was a good one on the stew...hope he heals soon.

Poor Rick! I hope his thumb heals, men just won't do as they're told will though although he probably knows he has his own private nurse! Have a great weekend, I hope you feel better soon. Jeannette xx

My BF is now loaded with canker sores and looking under the weather.  That is one bad thing about March.  The germs just seem to multiply and spread.

The beef stew sounds yummy but the sliced finger not so much.  Men do make me laugh because they simply do not tolerate a visit to the ER or doctor.  He's lucky to have a nurse in the house.

Sorry, you didn't get to pay your respects to your friend.  Chris
