I want Spring back!

This is about as hot as I like it - 83degrees!  The next 3 days are going to be in the 90's but we'll be back in the 70's next after that.  I hate hot weather!

I think I'm past needing prescription pain meds, but I did take an Alleve capsule last night before going to bed. 

I had to deal with a load of laundry this morning.  I worried about the weight of the laundry basket and wet clothes that I needed to carry across the street to hang them dry.  I got out an old scale which I can't really rely on for accuracy, but weighed myself, and then again holding the laundry basket.  Ten pounds for the basket.   One doctor told me to only lift 8# and under for 6 weeks; written instructions for post op say 15#.  So I went with the written advice.  I think the load was lighter coming back with the dry folded clothes.  Water is pretty heavy.

The storms are really scary and I hope everyone is staying safe.  I don't have even a closet I could take shelter in, so I would probably just hide out in the bathroom, which has a small window over the tub.   I don't think this area is ever under serious threat of tornados, and I'm sure not knowledgeable about what to do during an earthquake, So I don't worry  about any of it.

I have to give credit to my feeling better to the coffee I have in the morning.   I'm back to using half & half after a few weeks of coffee with 2% milk.  The milk is ok in a pinch but the coffee just didn't taste all that great to me.  Now it's a wonderful way to start the day.  I love mornings, including the coffee and breakfast foods.  I just wish eating dinner was as satisfying.


  1. Good that you're feeling better. If you like your breakfast foods, have them for dinner too. You could have some thing different for each meal so you don't get tired of them. For example eggs and toast for breakfast, cereal for dinner etc.

  2. Coffee does taste better with half & half. I don't like the heat and San Antonio is getting to hot for me. Luckily I leave on May 5th for a summer job in WY.

  3. Wonderful to hear that you are feeling better, no matter what the reason! If coffee with half & half works, drink up!

  4. Wish I could bring you three meals a day to help you get your strength back.

    Virtual hugs,


  5. So glad to hear you are feeling better and if it is due to drinking coffee so much the better.

    I too enjoy a good breakfast especially if I don't have to prepare it. I could eat breakfast food all day that is why I am partial to Jack in the Box.

    I wish I had your daytime temperatures. It is hot in Texas :-(

  6. I'm heading for Bartlesville, OK, today where the temps will be in the 30's tonight. I don't like the cold, but it's better than tornadoes!

  7. Breakfast is hands down my favorite meal. After that is'all kind of "oh well....."
