Good Monday Morning, Kids,
Yes, it's time for a new Porch. Thought all y'all might get a kick out of this Amish hot rod buggy. I did. Heck, if I had this, I might want to take it everywhere instead of driving a car. Wonder whether it comes with GPS. Probably not.
A while ago, something sounded loud like something hitting the bldg. I have no idea what it was. Nothing going on outside. I checked the windows to make sure nothing was broken. Our bldg. continues to settle and makes some strange pop, crackle and snap noises especially at night when it cools down. SV came running in and I though perhaps he had done something but I think he was just scared. If there was some damage, it'll show up sooner or later.
Granni, yesterday was boring and it ain't gonna get any better on the weekends when it comes to TV unless one is a football nut. I usually make the Myers Lemon quick bread from a mix. The boxes look similar and I didn't know they also made a Myers Lemon bar mix. Well, these lemon bars are fantastic but very, very rich. Almost too rich to eat. Myers Lemons can grow big as oranges on trees here and they are so sweet you almost don't need sugar to make lemonade. I was thinking about thawing a big steak I have in the freezer but didn't feel up to dragging out the grill. That's pretty sad but when exhaustion hits this hard, I am too tired to do anything. Let's hope this week is more exciting in a good way.
Julie, I am so sorry you are in pain. I hope it gets better fast. Ongoing pain is miserable. My shoulders have been so painful for days. I can only imagine how anxious you are to finish with all those apples. Yes, it's good that there are things Den can do inside in inclement weather. When we added on to our first house in CO, we were fighting the weather in the fall. I ended up having to finish putting the tar paper on the roof as a snowstorm approached. Geez, I look back and wonder how I was able to do it. Guess age and illness make those kinds of things impossible now and it's hard to remember feeling that energetic. Most of my friends my age have to be careful so it's not just those of us with these conditions. I know that, even at your tender age, these conditions make doing a lot of things so hard and painful. Take good care of yourself and feel better.
Rock, most cooks like to make things from scratch but I buy the Krusteaz brand mixes. My kids howl when they see that brand because it's pronounced like, Krusty's. They think of Krusty the Clown on The Simpsons. I have loved baking cookies all my life but haven't done that in ages. Just too much trouble when I feel lousy. When I feel less lousy, I'm trying to catch up with what went to hell in a handbasket while I was down and out. Sooo good to see you back on the Porch. I can remember nothing. I have to write passwords down and the only phone number and address I know is my own. Whenever I have to fill out paperwork at the doc, I have to have my cell phone to give them DD's emergency contact phone no. Ocular migraines are the strangest things and very scary if you don't know what is going on when one strikes. They don't produce pain; they produce wild zig-zaggy patterns in one's vision. If they last too long, it's a medical emergency. Mine don't last very long. Some people go on to have headaches but I never have. Hope to see more of you now that you have tamed the wild computer beast.
OK, Kids, time to go read the virtual paper. Hope everydobby has a great start to the week.
