Morning

Yesterday went smoothly.  Choir, church, then brunch with J.  Got out for a bike ride in the afternoon.  Did some more cross stitch

Found out the church might offer the temporary organist the position full time.  Seems like a good idea as she's pretty good and the choir and congregation seem to like her

Working from home the next 2 days

Weather has remained cooler, the rain will stop for a few days which is good

Good Morning!

Joe - Nice to read that you had a good day, yesterday. Regarding your church organist, it's very cool to read that she might be offered a full-time position! It says a lot about her abilities and your church. 🙂

Speaking of choirs and church. . . It seems that being a choir director can be dangerous! Yesterday, during our church choir rehearsal, I pulled out my lower back simply by going from a sitting to standing position!! (UGH!!!) It really hurt at the time, and the pain got worse as the day played itself out. I haven't pulled out my lower back in a long time. Actually, I've been more physically active these past couple of weeks with power walks, gentle jogging and hiking trails. So, to go from a sitting position to a standing one really pissed me off! (UGH!!) Needless to say, I've been taking lots of Ibuprofen, and been very, very, very careful with any kind of position change. I even called out "sick" from work, which I haven't done in a long time. (I just couldn't go to work and meet the expectations of any kind of lifting, tossing and turning of patients.) The lower back is still tender this morning. But it's much, much better than yesterday, thank goodness!

Today?!?!? I'm off from work, which is good. Just going to take it really, really easy and let that freakin' lower back of mine heal. I'm off from work Tuesday night, too. Hopefully it'll be safe for me to return to work Wednesday night.

Nothing much else going on. Amy is working a partial day today. She'll return home during the mid-afternoon. She's also off from work tomorrow, too. We can at least relax together at our cozy home tonight and tomorrow.

Hope all have a good . . . and SAFE . . . day, today!  Peace! 🙂

Ted

Good Morning!

Joe, sounds like a nice day.  Glad you got to see J and hope he's feeling better.

Ted, so sorry to hear about the back.  Too bad that all the activity went well and just standing up did it.  Ugh.  Get well.

Herring, my old church used to do a blessing of the animals, but I didn't have a pet then. Seems an odd tradition, but there are lots of those in religion.  Sounds like a good memorial service.

Dianah, sounds like a good day.

Amo, so sorry you were in the hospital but glad you're posting and hopefully on the mend.

Stars, yep, let the 90 year old body sleep when it says sleep.

Work was okay yesterday.   Garden variety and got out at a decent time.  Normal Monday today nothing special.

Hope everyone has a good day in good health.

It's amazing what I sooo missed while hospsitalized.  Like just reading along here.  And SALT! 🥓 🧀

But boy was I EVER EVER EVER enlightened re hospital care and nsg. I better understand a few things now. MUCH MUCH MUCH better experience this time around, but to quote Dorothy, "there's no place like home"! 👠

(There's no ruby slippers emojii, but I love my red high heels!!! I've prob a dozen or so - from my skinny, hot-to-trot days. Can't wear them today, but I will NEVER NEVER throw them out!).

amoLucia - It good to see that you seem to be recuperating well. It's also good to read about your positive experience while hospitalized.

Tweety - Hope work is kind to you today. . . 

That damned back is feeling much better. I have  no real plans today except to move a little as possible, and when moving to do it slowly and carefully!

Currently drinking Second Coffee. It tastes good. Going for Third Coffee soon!

Cheers! 🙂

Good morning Joe, Ted, Tweety, Amolucia, and whoever follows!

I plan to mow the front lawn today. Only parts have grass tall enough to mow.

amoLucia, LOVE a nice pair of red heels!  And I too have a few high heels I cannot bring myself to toss...  So glad you are out of the hospital and hope you continue to do well.

Ted, hope your back continues to improve.

Have a good day, all!

Good day. I was up late (for me) last night, picking up dh from the airport at 12:20 am. Then I drove him to his office because he left his work truck there. That worked out well because I was able to make a HV to pick up specimens from a r/o TB patient who lives in the same town. Things were going well until I got out of the car, pressed the lock button and dropped my keys in my purse. I set my purse on the car seat, dropped one of the specimens, and accidentally shut the car door. In the pouring rain. Thank goodness for AAA. 

I have a beautiful pair of shiny red peep-toe heels that I haven't worn in some time. But I have 2 pairs of red boots, and red sandals, 😂. On the rare occasions that I am in a Nordstroms, I love to walk past the Louboutin shoes. 

Ted, do take care of your back! Good job on calling out. 

Have a good day all
