I'm literally forcing my eyes open today. I started my muscle relaxants last night and woke up this morning with my neck feeling MUCH better but the drowsiness is still here, I am one of those people where if medication says "MAY cause drowsiness", to me it means it "WILL cause MAJOR drowsiness and you WILL be using toothpicks on your eyelids to keep them open". I'm already wishing it was bed time and keep imagining laying down, pulling the covers over my weary body and drifting off into a nice cozy slumber. *sigh* Thank you all for the prayers, I can feel them at work and I truly appreciate every single one of you.
It's been a while since I've shared sky photos so I have 2 for you today.....I was outside with the kids admiring the Lemon Tree again when I took them.
Now did you know that the Lemon Tree has thorns and they are SHARP???? I had no clue until I accidentally brushed up against it with my arm and YIKES that hurt.
Are those not huge thorns? I thought only rose bushes had them but I was clearly mistaken, I can't tell you how much this little tree has educated me.
The lemons are all gone, I've made the lemon bars and some lemonade, the next ones that fall off the tree will be used in a Lemon Meringue Pie - Curt's favorite. Thank you all for the tip on the issue of Taste of Home Magazine with all the lemon recipes, I went out and bought it yesterday so I have plenty to choose from.
I've slacked off on my reading, this neck pain was not helping either because it hurt to look down at the book or to even keep it in one position for longer than a few minutes, but I miss my books.
I'm hoping to get back into them this week, we'll see how this goes, I don't want to push things just because I feel a little better.
The next book on my list to read is Katherine the Virgin Widow by Jean Plaidy, can't wait.
Well I wish I could stay and chat more but I'm drowsy and sore still so I'm going to fix lunch for Nicholas and I and see about taking a short nap.
Have a wonderful wednesday and please don't forget about the Slow Cooking Thursday tomorrow.
