Today is my first official day of being alone. Mom is back in New Jersey now and Steve is off at work, so it's just me and my two perpetual four legged shadows. (So I guess in reality, I'm not really alone!) The sun is shining and it's a balmy 40 degrees in Michigan, almost makes me want to break out the short sleeved t shirts! This is my drug free week, and I'm excited. No meds to take (unless I feel side effects coming on) and no doctor visits. :-) Gee, I feel kind of normal! I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.
I've finally found a beverage to drink that tastes "normal" to me...apple juice! I've already finished an entire bottle of "Simply Apple" and it was...simply deeelicious!I drank so much however, that I was having visions of the famous Willy Wonka line (OK, I am kind of obsessed with the old version of this movie, so I can relate anything to it)"Violet, you're turning violet!" Only in my head, I was turning into a giant apple! So, I'll wait a day or two before buying some more. Back to the water. sigh.
I'm working on the pics to post for all of my many thank yous. They should be ready by tomorrow to post. (sorry, I'm a computer idiot and it takes me three times as long as a normal person to do anything)I have been baking a little, and sent Steve off to work this morning with chocolate chip cookies. Today I made some carrot cake muffins which are cooling, so I haven't tried them yet. Believe it or not, I'm really not eating what I bake, I just like reading new recipes and then trying them out. I picked up a few new cookbooks from the library today, so I'm sure there will more baking to come this week.
I want to say a special HELLO to Linday P. who I saw is now following my blog! :-)
Linday, I can't believe you are 14 now! It seems like only yesterday that you were sitting in my third grade classroom! You are a beautiful young lady! Please give my best to your Mom and to Michael.
Have a great day, I'll be here drinking my apple juice! :-)
