The day before Thanksgiving, and the day before my oldest daughter’s 45th birthday. She was born on the 28th, and that year it was Thanksgiving.
I had a caesarean section that afternoon because they couldn’t get my blood pressure under control with the pre-eclampsia I had developed. I was 17.
I will be dropping Charlie off for his acupuncture and then driving on down the road to the grocery store. I’ll see if they still have turkey to be sliced and cornbread dressing in the deli. I had it recently and it was very good.
They are mowing outside, I can hear. Seems odd to mow grass the end of November, but it’s been a strange year for weather.
We had a cold October, unusual for these parts. The plants on the patio were caught by surprise and frozen in place.
I still have rosemary right outside the door though. Such a pungent herb, with it’s spiky stiff leaves. I wonder if it will make it through the winter. So far so good. If I had a sunny window to put it in, I’d bring it inside.
I had the wood door open and the lawn guys just blew leaves all over the porch. Charlie barked as they swirled through the air and landed on the concrete. I got up to close the door.
About four years ago I had the foundation of the door redone because they used to blow leaves and grass right across my living room floor, the gap was so wide where the floor met the door.
It cost me over $300 to have a professional come in and rebuild the concrete but it was worth it to no longer have big bugs walk right in and leaves and grass blow everywhere. And the complex certainly wouldn’t pay for it.
I may go by Braums to see if they have a frozen pumpkin pie left. I love their pies. They’re as good as homemade. I may be too late the day before Thanksgiving though. But I think I’ll go by and check anyway.
I love me some pumpkin pie.
Have you ever seen an airplane plant that looks like the one above? I found it at the garden nursery. I’ve never seen one shaped like that before.
I guess I need to get going. Charlie can’t have his egg or medication until he gets back, so he’s restless.
Ivy is wandering around wondering why I haven’t put her teaspoon of wet cat food on her table in the bedroom. I’ll do that once I take Charlie so he won’t wonder why he isn’t getting his breakfast yet.
Charlie had me up so much last night. But I got a few night sleep there when I was taking the pain pills. Which really didn’t make the pain go away but sure gave me a few night’s sleep.
I’ve stopped taking the Gabapentin as the pain in the right side of my face has calmed down from the trigeminal neuralgia that resulted from the mouth incision. It seems to be pretty much well now and I can now eat on that side.
Got to get going!
