Post-Surgery Funny

Here is one funny event from the hospital stay. The first night after the surgery, I was constantly struggling with a really dry mouth. I was allowed to have ice chips. De'Etta had been up with me for quite a while, and I knew she was tired. I decided I could do the ice chip thing on my own. I held the cup on my chest with one hand and used the other to spoon ice chips and some of the melted water. This was going fine until I began to nod off. You know those sudden muscle spasms you have when you startle awake? Yup, I had one of those. Doused myself right in the face with that cup of ice chips and water. Wow! What a way to wake up. Thank you, De'Etta, for coming to my rescue and even getting the water out of my ears.

April Fool's Day Weather

I THOUGHT SPRING WAS HERE. It was 31 Mar....the roads were clear - not dry - but not snowy. The snow storm of hast weekend had turned to rain....patches of mud were emerging, lost garbage was reappearing....

Sad deflated snowman
The ginormous sledding hill/fortress out our door had melted from "roof high" to fence high...and it was muddy, and broken sleds and such were starting to appear as it thawed.....note the barn roof. 
But then...who would guess? Sleeveless dresses and white sandals in the BX - 1 April on the calendar - Palm Sunday.....
