Splish Splash…..Mish Mash
Mish Mash?…….Because this is likely to be a post about nothing and anything. It is 3:30 Sunday morning. This last week, I have enjoyed much relief from my “issues”. Which coming off of a week of vacation eating, I was surprised and relieved. But last evening and through the night, it has been brutal. I haven’t over eaten, because I put on a few pounds from Oktoberfest and vacation. So I am back on counting my points for Weight Watchers. But what I have eaten might be another story. Friday, I made my spaghetti because I had a jar left over from canning that I did not process. It was delicious. I guess I did eat a large serving because I had not eaten since lunch the day before, and I had a sliver of garlic bread. So I glutened myself. But usually “issues” show up right away when it is gluten, and I had no problem that night or yesterday during the day. I then went almost all day without eating again. But I made a crock pot full of sweet and sour pork ribs, acorn squash, baked potato and green salad. Sounds yummy doesn’t it? It was! I made sure I did not over eat and there was definitely no gluten in the meal. But YIKES! What a horrible evening and night. 😦 So bad, I had to take the pain medicine that starts with a P. Remember, I don’t write the actual P. word down because it brings on spam comments, and nasty comments from people who seem to think if a person occasionally takes a strong pain medicine,……they must have a problem.
Speaking of P. word. Here’s another for you. You know the P. word that refers to a male part. Well I may be adopting another animal next week that has a head that looks like an eight year old boy’s P. word. 😀 Rett’s brother and sister-in-law are looking for a home for Yoda, their tortoise. I have met Yoda and as far as tortoises go, he is a handsome little fellow. I am sure adding this guy to our household will bring on many more blog posts because this truly is a nut house. Which brings me to……
Splish Splash?…….Yesterday, after I blogged, I went out and cleaned the chicken coop. While out there, Bailey was on her lunch for work and was talking to me in the back yard. LL came out and asked me to help him cover the pool for winter. Now Reggie was out there with us. He had walked around the pool probably a dozen times this first day that we’ve had him. But not 2 minutes after we covered the pool with the blue tarp,…..yep, he stepped right on top of the tarp and went in the pool. I started freaking out, and Bailey quickly grabbed him, but his surgical incision got wet with the green pool water so I quickly cleaned him and put antibiotic spray on his incision. Not 15 minutes later, while LL is gone to the store, Bailey yells. I come running. I had let the girls out to free range while cleaning their coop, and Harriet stepped right onto the tarp and into the pool. Now you might remember that I lost Alice by drowning in the pool, but Harriet and the others have lived here for 3 years, walking around the pool, tarp on and off. Never a problem. So while Bailey is trying to grab Harriet and Harriet is freaking out and not cooperating, I get the pool skimmer and get under her butt and literally throw her out of the pool. What the @#$% is going on at this crazy house. Drowning Dogs and Hens!
After such a weird day yesterday with the animals and my trying to keep Max down so his hand can heal, I am hoping for a more “normal” day. What ever the heck that means in Konnie’s world. There is only one plan for the day today. Bailey wants to take LL and I out for breakfast. Our Anniversary is coming up and she wants to treat us. Max will probably go to. She wants to take us to Leona’s, or is it Lenora’s. Oh I can never remember. It is a restaurant in Mt. Angel. The owner is a friend of Bailey and Rett. I have eaten there before, but LL has not and Bailey wants her dad to try the food there. The owner is a wonderful baker (has gluten-free choices) and she makes great cinnamon rolls, so I think Max will enjoy it too.
Well I did say this post would be rambling about nothing and everything. Between the pain pill that I took hours ago and only a couple of hours sleep, I am pretty nauseous. I sure wish I could go back to sleep, but as you already know about me, once I am up, I am up for the day. Oh well, have a blessed Sunday and try not to make your day as “interesting” as my days seem to turn out lately. 🙂
