EDDD 27 – Random

25 Comments

It’s taken me twenty seven days to run out of things to say, which isn’t bad I don’t think. Okay, so I cheated for a couple of days when my dear friend Navigator1965 posted for me. But I would have come up with something excellent to blog about. Honest.

One little bit of good news – the kids are being picked up by their dad for the weekend, so I’m getting some time to myself, for the first time in four weeks! This will be my fifth weekend off since August. I want to spend as much time reading my manuscript as I can, since I haven’t looked at it for almost two months. I wanted to give it time to rest. Apart from that, I think sleep will be a priority.

And wine and chocolates. I have a box of Godiva truffles to wade through, which is nice, as I have insanely expensive taste in chocolate. Hey, go big or go home, right? The wine is a different story. I’m going to save the good stuff for a grand occasion, like when someone’s book hits the best-seller list. Which it will. You know who you are.

What else? Oh, I went back to delivering my papers today for the first time since my accident. It went well – not too much ice underfoot, nor any branches dropping on my head. No giraffe encounters either (Joey), nor did I see Megan Fox (Paul), so it wasn’t a perfect outing.

My next door neighbour lost his back fence to a fallen tree that stood about five feet tall laying down (the trunk’s diameter), so that was pretty exciting. I missed it actually falling, but I was sitting at the kitchen table when it happened, so I caught the cloud of ice dust that surrounded it when it hit the ground. It missed the other neighbour’s shed by inches. I’m glad I wasn’t standing under that. Surprising, considering my luck this holiday.

Alex seems to be doing well. I’m not sure why the doctor only treated the symptoms of his pneumonia and didn’t mention removing the piece of food from his lung. Maybe it’ll dissolve? I can’t find any information online one way or the other.

Here’s some more ice, in case you haven’t seen enough this week.

  4. That is some serious ice. Today, although my ‘day off’ will include grandbaby-sitting while he’s napping and an extra gift card so my daughter can help a friend with something that includes coloring her hair. I’ll be online shopping at Vicky’s Secret as soon as I’m done here. πŸ™‚ Score!

    My favorite chocolate is Lindt… although I did get a gift tower of Godiva hot chocolate goodies. I posted it http://preziosofrye.wordpress.com/2013/12/26/the-day-after-festivities-alcoholic-beverages-and-shampoo/ complete with a photo. Thanks to Christmas contributions my liquor collection is perking up. Oh yeah…

  6. Enjoy your weekend Linda, I can imagine, how much you might need this.
    I’m happy to read, that your son is recovering, I would also talk to his own doctor and ask why they didn’t remove the food.
    I’m happy, that we didn’t have the ice, as you have. After I moved to Spain, I have only seen a little of my usual winter here. Denmark is more north and much more cold in the winters.
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. I’m glad you weren’t flattened by the fence either. It’s treacherous out there with all the ice– even when it starts melting! Listening/watching my iced over bamboo slowly start to emerge from it’s bowed low position was rather epic. It would just suddenly snap back up into place like a phoenix from the ashes.
    I hope your son continues to recover well πŸ™‚
