A cold day here in the country
but no snow.
A quick trip to town for much needed hair trim.
I cut my hair most of the time and it was looking like it.
New magazine arrived
a gift subscription from one daughter.
reminded me of when my children were growing up.
Fried chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs, cornbread and always on the weekend
the big breakfast of eggs, bacon, ham or sausage, biscuits and gravy and always
Made a banana pudding yesterday and already half has been consumed
and guess it is comfort food on these cold days.
This easy recipe was posted sometime last year.
Some thoughts keep surfacing after reading a favorite new blog "The Other Side of Sixty" from Wise Web Woman
several of the comments on this entry about each of us seeing life differently. Made me think of acquaintances over the years. I would think of them in a certain way and a comment about them would be made and I would think "that is not the person I know." So much contributes to our thoughts of someone and some accurate and some not.
When we think of our families, children and much experienced over the years, some thoughts would be accurate, some not and would be the result of where we were emotionally, age and guess just an understanding of life at that particular time. Having difficulty finding the right words and hope I am making sense with what I have shared ?
I have a small horn I blow if something is spotted I want to frighten and make go away ( used on boats and sound goes a long distance) when I blow this and Callie is outside she comes running to me. This is great on this cold afternoon when I want her to come inside. She is afraid of gun shots and maybe she thinks someone is in the woods hunting. Also when I have been on an errand and return home I honk my horn as I drive down the long gravel drive and she comes running to greet me.
Has been very difficult for me lowering dose of prednisone which I have been on over 6 weeks. Beginning with 40 mg, now down to 5mg and hopefully off in a week.
In the beginning such an elevated feeling, high energy and now for several days it is almost like
I am suffering from jet lag. Difficulty sleeping, low energy, difficulty concentrating and just a general feeling of
something not being like it should be. But today a good day and feeling more like myself.
Surely hope the help this medication has given me - continues.
