Hi everybody!!! I've missed talking to y'all. Been a rough five or so days for me. Herxing. I've been tired and having trouble concentrating. I've been reading every day. Know that y'all are in my thoughts and prayers. Before I forget -- I LOVE THE ARTWORK!!! So beautiful, Sun and Windy. Sun, when I saw the pic in your avatar (fountain and dog), I swore that it was REAL, a picture. That's how life-like it looked to me. Y'all are very talented. I can't remember what all I read. And I can't respond individually. Things are OK here. We're all doing OK. We're getting a lot of rain lately, and it's warm and humid too. Tomorrow the weather will be spectacular. 70, very low humidity. Should be a very pleasant next several days, if one believes the meteorologists. LOL I have a big project for this morning -- boiling a couple pounds of shrimp. Suppers, for the rest of the week. Cold shrimp, cocktail sauce, salad. Yummy. I had wanted sandwiches (on lettuce wraps), and "chef salads", for my meals. I realized that BOAR'S HEAD brand of cold cuts/cheeses, etc., are ALL gluten free. And they offer a LOW SODIUM line of meats/cheeses. So I made a list on Saturday, Kevin went to the butcher shop a couple miles away -- AND -- the butcher shop is CLOSED. After 33 years in business, the owner retired. Couldn't find anyone to take over the market for him. Boo hoo. Other larger stores carry the Boar's Head brand, but not the low sodium items. I better go start my chores. I have to unload and reload the dishwasher, put out fresh water and kibble for the kitties, check my shrimp boiling pot, etc. Then (post-cooking) I'll probably be a couch potato this afternoon. I finished reading Bad Monkey (GOOD BOOK!), I'm finishing Angel Baby. So I'll start a new book today. Y'all take care!!!! I'll check back soon. Love, Diane PS: The orchid pics are beautiful, Sun!!!!!
