My weekly update begins now. There hasn’t been anything earthshaking except for last Sabbath’s weather. I got up and looked out. Nothing was out of the ordinary except the tree branches were bending lower than usual. I attempted to open the storm door and it was frozen shut. I was able to kick it open and found that the steps were ice under the little “skift” of snow (that was one of my mother’s words not to be confused with the Urban Dictionary’s definition). There was something I wanted to get out of the car but it was an ice cube. I walked out to the road and it was iced over, too. There was a heart-stopping minute when I got back to the house and the latch on the storm door was frozen. After I banged on it multiple times, I got back in the house. I e-mailed the pastor that I was home for the day.
My DIL called and said she had my son at the doctor’s office. The doctor was wanting to know if he had ever taken any of the ‘cillins. I told him I was sure he had. He’d had tubes put in his ears as a child and later on underwent an appendectomy. Well, could I remember what he took? My word, man! That was 30-some years ago! I’ve slept since then.
Otherwise, it was quiet and I enjoyed it. It commenced to snow hard and kept it up most of the morning but didn’t accumulate. That evening, I watched the third episode of All Creatures Great and Small. Life on the edge.
Sunday was the opposite of Sabbath, weather-wise. It was sunny and beautiful but still a little on the cool side so I stayed in. I toyed with the idea of going grocery shopping but decided against it. I had everything I needed and it would have just been to go to the organic grocery. It’s a little far away with gas prices what they are. Besides, I had to stay home and visit via phone with my oldest son and my daughter.
Monday through today were work days, of course. The same old round of getting up, getting ready, yada yada yada. Wednesday was beautiful and I got out and walked plus I relaxed in the sun while I ate lunch. My friend came out and joined me. She had “Birds and Blooms” with her and she read me a story while I basked. Yesterday was a bit overcast and the wind had picked up. I got in the sun for maybe 10 minutes.
Today was dreary with a drizzle falling. It never did open up and rain. Weatherbug shows total precip of .29″ in the valley.
My doc gave me an order for the repeat of the alkaline phosphatase since it was elevated when I had it done the end of December. He wrote it for my thyroid tests, too. You can see the results here. That’s from this morning. If you don’t want to look, it went from 141 to 126. That’s still barely elevated. My TSH is edging toward low which means I may have to, eventually, get my dosage cut again.
I ate lunch in the break room and we had a good discussion. One of the girls wants to start using sea salt so I’ll take her some Monday. I mentioned that I need to get another crystal. She wanted to know what I use it for and I told her I rub it under my arms after a shower for deodorant. Talk about surprised! She was. Then it was my turn to be surprised when the girl across the table said that her mother always used a salt crystal that way, too! Amazing what I can get excited about, huh?
The other day, I ordered Twinkle’s food and was told it would get here today. I’d thought about it earlier but it didn’t occur to me it was nowhere to be seen when I got to the house. Later, the lightbulb went off and I went looking. It was on the front porch where my other refrigerator lives. Talk about relieved! I didn’t wait until the last minute this time so she still had some from the last order.
It’s getting close to 9 and that’s about all I have to say about my week. I’m sure I could come up with some more details but what for? I’m still eating raw and I need to get ready for bed.
Good night and happy Sabbath!
