It's Sunday morning but I feel like the weekend is over. I hate that. Why do I do that to myself?
I had a nice long brunch with Boo yesterday and that felt good. I am lucky to have friends that care and just listen. So-so meal at Destihl but a delightful Bloody Mary. And no, it probably wasn't low fodmap. Or then again, maybe it was, not sure about Worcestershire though. Oh, I just looked it up and evidently it is. How nice. Ok, more Bloody Mary's in my future.
Later Ernie and I went over to Danville Gardens on Prospect. 25% off...we bought some plants to replace ones we'd killed in our window box already (sigh) and bought a tomato plant or two. That's right...it's almost mid-June and we haven't planted a tomato plant yet. Oh, my how times change. Good Lord, we just planted my zinnia seeds yesterday. Who the hell have I become? Zinnia seeds in June? Geesh.
My B12 test came back and although, up somewhat, it is still very low, even after taking sub-lingual supplements for six weeks. We shall see what the doctor says. I'm looking at this as a positive, given that I feel somewhat better than I did six weeks ago, but still not great. I'm hoping this means that if we can get it back into normal range that I will feel better and more like myself.
I've been turning down house concerts left and right. I just don't have the energy for it right now. Maybe in the fall. I don't know. I skipped Bobby Bare Jr and Doug Strahan last night too. I know I would have enjoyed it but just couldn't get it together.
I finished a good book (A Little Life) but I've gotta say I'm tired of protagonists that have been irreparably damaged by horrific childhoods. I want some good books that aren't total fluff but also aren't filled with horror or desolation. Ideas? And I'm happiest if I can just check them out online. Lazy, I know. I spent time hunting for a new one and finally gave up and went back to a Regency era romance.
While I hunted for a new book, Ernie went and picked up Owen from band practice. Owen drove them over to Popeyes, evidently a new band tradition, and got dinner to bring back to our place. Later, for us, Ernie simply grilled some chicken wings and we had cucumber and tomato salad with a couple of roasted potatoes. Simple and summery. We curled up and watched some of Keepers.
Later on everybody seemed grumpy so I went upstairs and read and listened to my music. Today I need to find something to make me happy. We need to go visit a friend that's in the nursing home right now. Maybe a drink with a friend after that. We need to plant some of our new plants too. I'll figure it out.
Oh, and I think there's some kind of activity in our chimney. We had our chimney cleaned a year or two ago and the guy was supposed to put a new grill or whatever on the top of it so birds couldn't get it. We have no idea if he ever did that. After we had a bat in the chimney awhile back Ernie left him a message asking him about it but we never had a response. Sometimes we're not so good at follow through. Ugh.
