Just a Rather Nice Day

Hello again, everybody.

You know, some lifetimes you just can't "win". No sooner did I get over my cough/cold/sore throat/upper respiratory thingy, than I spasm'ed my back again scrubbing the commode in the bathroom. If it's not one thing, it's another. Getting old sucks.

Nothing major - just a nagging little backache. I'll survive - it's getting better already. Just one more annoyance. I need to stop thinking in terms of the annoyances and just "go with the flow" more, I think. One cannot, however, forgo cleaning the commode, so I'll have to get a long-handle scrub brush.

Kal got me going this weekend - going to the store for sourdough bread, to make toast Seems he went to a call and the hallway was filled with smoke. Turned out the guy with the problem's roommate had burnt toast to a crispy critter just before Kal and his partner arrived. J, who sits behind me at work, has a toaster in his cube, and I think it has several lifetimes worth of breadcrumbs at the bottom. Every time he uses it, the whole office smells of toast. Somehow I always seem to forget how much I really LOVE toast - until I smell it. Then I crave it for HOURS.

So this morning I had some lovely sourdough toast, and a vanilla latte, and the world was cold, but sunny, so everything was nice - and Senator Obama is doing well.

Nice days are boring, but I don't always want to sound whiney on here. I think I will stop off at the fabric store on the way home and try not to buy them out. Remember - she who dies with the most fabric... WINS!

    Whatcha gonna make with your fabric pieces ma? Speaking of fabric and the like, do you happen to have a pattern for a couch cover?? I need to make covers for my couches until I can get them reappolstered. Thought you might have one?

    I think I will make a toasted cheese sandwich for breakfast. And start a crock pot of 15 bean soup.

    And bake a cake. 41 degrees this am and mostly clear skies, looks like it will be a nice day.

    I'll go to Peggy's and clean the moss off of her home. Staying active helps keep my back in shape, at least I like to think so.

    Better favor yours for a bit though.

    Amanda: Fabric here is so expensive that when I wanted to slipcover my couch I bought one which turned out to be much less expensive and time consuming than sewing one. However, if you like to sew that's a different story. You might find instructions on making a slipcover on-line.

    Hi Sew. Did you send me your cold and backache? You can have them back anytime. I have a liking for toasted Extra Crispy English Muffins with real butter and grape jelly. You might not have English muffins down yonder.

    Getting old sucks.
    May I reword that just slightly:

    "Getting old completely sucks!!" Baby that back!!
