Finally feeling human again. Right after the Poison Ivy, I caught a cold which went into my chest. For 2 weeks, I felt like a walking medicine chest. 7 days of Prednisone for the Ivy and 10 days of antibiotics for the chest infection.
The PI is gone and the chest cold is breaking up so I'll be back at work Monday.
I am getting to like my new laptop and the WIFI. Makes me portable now as I can use my printer/fax from wherever I am.
My dog snapped out of her depression as soon as I was able to take her walking again.
I think she is in her 2nd puppyhood ,racing around everywhere, She too is happy to be out and about again. She seems to know that the more she walks the less she limps, and there are so many smells to catch up on in the woods. It's a wonder she doesn't wear her nose out.
Now that I'm feeling OK I'm going to make another batch of Chef Meg's Baked Beans.
The last batch came out great and it is cooling down here so it is time for some warm food. I'm glad the recipe calls for very little bacon as the store near here is getting $7.80 a lb. for bacon. I figure a pound should last me through the winter.
After the wife and I had the inside of the house painted and the outside front re-landscaped
we decided it was time for a new refrigerator and stove as the ones we had were 22 years old and winter is coming. Now this winter we can sit and look at our new appliances and hope we can afford to fill them lol.
Although I don't like getting sick, it is a good reminder for me that life and good health are tentative so appreciate the good while I have it.
