Get the crutches!

I wasn't going to bother you with pictures of a bleep tomato plant, but ... Tim is leaning toward the window, I guess he needs a crutch. I have done everything I can for the poor thing, it just isn't happy. All I can do is pamper it along so I get tomatoes and seeds to try again later. Ruth says hers is fine, go figure.

And speaking about crutches, it has been nearly 5 years since DH had surgery on his knee. Looks like something has to be done again. I have him home again. He's limping around. Tried to go to work today, walked all the way in and he had forgotten his badge. By the time he walked back to the car, he said to h--- with it and came home. I have a feeling his vacation next week will start today and be a two week vacation. (Or longer ...) Sure wish it was with pay. Sigh.

I'm seriously thinking about taking a break for a while. So, if I don't show up - don't panic.

Have a great week!

I have never seen myself as different than what I am. That said, I must be disillusioned. The ad said to order your normal clothing size. Normally, I wear a large, but I have gained some poundage, so I ordered XL. Studying these bras, I would have to say that I need a 2 or 3XL. I tried to pour myself into the nude one. It was a real fight and felt as if I was being squeezed to death. Sigh.
I noticed after the fight to fit into that the bra, it did not return completely to that size. Not the bounce-back I would have expected. Hmm. 
 The fabric feels lovely. For how long ...time would tell. Not overly fond of the hard foam in the bra cups, but it is removable. Now to find a home for them.

Up real early for trip to the doctor. Luckily, he didn't chew me out. I was supposed to go in the end of March. Blood pressure is still too high. He put me on a better water pill. I need to take my allergy pills regularly. (I'm not a fan) He wants me to see a pulmonologist again, he'll set me up an appointment. Maybe there is something new on the scene to help my breathing. I guess I will see my old guy. Not looking forward to going through that whole game, but I really can't breath. I quit going because he didn't seem to be doing anything besides wasting my time. Maybe, just maybe, they have come up with something new that will help.

Ordered the movie, A Dog's Purpose. I guess we will have movie time tomorrow. DH has something else on right now.

I hope you all have a fun weekend!

Lampyridae Love

No picture, sorry. I tried, but they are too small and too fast for me.

I was lying in my bed in the dark and for a bit, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. The thought that perhaps I was having a stroke also crossed my mind. Tiny flashes of green light bouncing through the trees across the road and in the field were surprising, to be sure. For about 15 minutes, the trees, ditch, and field looked as if it was decorated for a fairy Christmas. The blinking was wild! They must have just emerged from their larva stage to their firefly stage and were interested in Lampyridae love. Hee hee. I have never seen so many. Wish I could have caught a picture.

It is a beautiful night out, warm, and starlit. Perfect for Love ... ,-)

No bras yet. So far they are in Memphis. Usually when things on the slow boat get to Memphis, they go to Columbia, then to my post office to be delivered that day or the next. Tracking says they are still in Memphis. Maybe they are waiting until they have a truckload of small, lightweight parcels before they send them on east. 

Last night, I was green-grass, dog-sick. Woke up pitiful and went back to bed. Didn't really feel human until this afternoon. 

I hope I can get to sleep now. Argh.
