What a difference a few days make. Last Monday it was 99 degrees with a dew point of 72. Ugh.....hot and humid. Yesterday a mere 4 days later our high was 69 with a dew point in the 40's. It felt cold enough I was wearing a hoodie in the house. Okay...okay.....I was not feeling so well, but it was cold! Iowa is in a drought, Colorado is flooding, and fires are raging in Northern California. The weather is chaotic and confusing.
Speaking of chaotic and confusing, that's how I feel about the symptoms I have been fighting this week. A major ramping up of pain has me taking deep breathes and saying "Lord have mercy, this has got to go!" I have managed to walk 1 to 1.5 miles most days, but yesterday after walking the pain was so bad it left me nauseated and trying to harness my emotions. This week I had to cut off and hem up two pair of pants for myself. Seriously, why in the world is everything made for tall people!!! And as long as I am complaining...........why, when you are already overweight, are the clothes for plus sizes made with large prints! The larger the person the larger the print? What is up with that?!?! I am still cooking, helping out at home, and shopping once in awhile. I do enjoy baking the most. Problem is, then I eat it! And now we are back full circle to the plus size drama.
Joel kept busy writing for the book, a sermon for tomorrow, and also cutting and putting new trim around three windows in the house. I washed the curtains for two of the windows, but now need to iron and rehang them. Our guest room is nearly complete~just need a shade for the window.
My laptop is still not working. After several hours of technical support, a change of IP addresses, and a change of Internet speeds, it only seems to connect when it feels like it!! Ugh. Guess we will take in in again and see if they can find anything.
I am looking forward to the fall TV season openers, but was disappointed to hear that NCIS is losing Cote de Pablo who plays the character Zeva David. She has been a powerful asset to the cast. No movies this week, just a little TV, but I did read a kindle book by Diane Davidson who writes the Goldy Schultz mysteries. What have you been reading?
Not much scribbling going on in my little brain today.................
Until next time..........
