We got a good soaking for over an hour yesterday, and more rain is on the way today. The ribs never made it to the grill, due to the rain. They got slowly nuked and were delish.
We need the rain, so we are not complaining about that nor the cold front moving down. This is the land of ever changing weather…and we call it GOOD.
I learned something new yesterday about dissolving stitches—they can take up to 3 months to dissolve! Who knew? I have a small stitch from my naval surgery that is sticking out, so I stopped by to have my doc’s nurse remove it. That sucker was too short to grab enough to hold to and clip (MM tried and he couldn’t get it); neither could the doc. Bugger. I don’t foresee wearing any silk blouses in the near future, and if I do, I’ll slap a small bandage over the suture to keep from snagging my fancy blouse. Our casual lifestyle comes in handy for these medical situations. Live and learn, people.
MM goes back for his eye check up this afternoon, then we plan to do something radical—maybe see a movie. Or maybe not. It is nice not having a schedule. Or having to be back to walk a dog (we love dogs!). Our two babies will sleep the whole time we are gone (as they are now doing). They love vacations…which occur for them 24/7…except when those pesky mowers and blowers are outside.
We do not stop playing because we grow old;
We grow old because we stop playing...
Make a little time to play today. And share a smile with those you meet!
