The Memorial

Last night was another sort of decent night’s sleep. I’m getting resigned to never being fully comfortable in bed again. The current wedge is better than the other one but I still like being able to sleep and not be on a slope. I guess that isn’t part of my future. At least I can turn on my side with this one if I want.

It was the first morning in many that I woke to sunshine! That made me feel better, for sure. I still cough in spite of the diffuser going most of the day and night. I’ve gotten so used to the smell of the oils, I don’t notice them any more.

Today was the day I’d set aside for Twinkle’s memorial. Late this afternoon, I put on my coat and went out to take care of the placing of the little marker. The ground was wet from the recent rains but I scrounged enough rocks to sort of ring her grave.

The rocks were very muddy so I wiped what I could off my fingers on the weeds.

Here’s a closeup of the marker:


I said, “Twinkle was a good cat,” dodged Catz and came back in the house.

It’s been a week or more since I’ve seen Big’Un. He was friendly without getting right underfoot.

Now we’ll take a sharp right and go off in a different direction.

When I was at ALDI last month, I bought a couple of small pomegranates for 49 cents each. I don’t know why I do such things. I know they’re good for me but I don’t even like them that much. Well, yesterday, I decided I would use one. I juiced a pink grapefruit, poured the juice in a glass, and then juiced a pomegranate. I strained the juice and poured it in with the grapefruit juice. Here’s what it looked like:

It tasted as good as it looked! This morning, I repeated the action and it was still just as good. I have two more pomegranates that are about twice as big that I got at Walmart. They were priced at over $2 each but I did the old match trick and got them for 49 cents, too. Now that I know how good the mix is, I’ll take my life in my hands and repeat it. Citrus is supposed to be a no-no with reflux but so far it’s been okay.

Bedtime approaches so I’m going to call it a day.

    Awwww, such a sweet little marker! You made a good choice.

    Yum, that juice looks good! Our family usta like pomegranites, but I haven’t seen them at Aldi’s and don’t like the price other places. Glad you have discovered this combination and hope you can still enjoy it without being penalized.

      I thought it was appropriate and the juice is YUM! This is the time of year for pomegranates. Check ALDI’s ad and when they’re listed, do a price match at Walmart if you’re close to one.

    I agree that it’s a sweet little marker.

    I bought a pomegranate at Aldi for .49 a couple of weeks ago, but didn’t really know what to do with it! Your combo looks good, but grapefruit is a no-no for me–and we used to have it quite regularly for breakfast in the winter! Wish I could now.

      I’d think OJ would do just as well. I’ll try it and let you know.
