Misc Catch Up

Found out a friend of mine very likely has lung cancer, metastasised from her original breast cancer. This breaks my heart. I just can’t put into words how I feel.

Had lunch with the Lunch Group yesterday at Middleton Tavern and did all the driving for the day (about 2 and a half hours worth).

Learning to cope with Sjogren’s by using lubricants 3 or 4 times a day. Hand cream, Eye drops, Nose rinse, mouth lubricant (did you even know there was such a thing? It’s called Biotene Gel), etc. Staying on top of things before letting any area get dry seems to help.

Rod and I both took unintentional naps today. We drifted to sleep watching TV after we had our breakfast.

Tomorrow is a public holiday – Queens Birthday – which made today’s lack of doing anything useful tolerable – after all it’s a holiday weekend. What better time is there to slack off and relax a bit?

I’m still heart broken over my friend. She’s been through hell. Her arsehole ex-husband left her after she recovered from breast cancer treatment with the excuse ‘I just couldn’t handle it if she gets cancer again.’ Now she’s alone, and going through more bullcrap. Sigh. I bet he STILL can’t handle it and by god, I hope when he finds out, the guilt hits him where he feels it most. Selfish sonofa… Oh, I’ll leave it there. I could write heaps about this though. Burns me up.

18Jul20 I surprised and impressed myself by stayi 18Jul20  I surprised and impressed myself by staying on the very edge of the driveway and parking exactly where I wanted so I could open the hatch and bring my groceries in.  This car can turn some very tight circles and backing into a parking spot is a breeze.  The bronze Ford probably needs it’s power steer fluid checked or something. Steering with it is like trying to swim in a vat of mashed potatoes.  Not that I’ve ever tried that before…  #ilovemykiapicanto #lovemykia #parkinglikeaboss #2020pad

So I mixed some strawberry cordial and sugar free Monster drink that’s kind of a lemony citrus flavour.  It was good.  And disappeared quickly!  #2020pad #gymdaydrink

02Jul20 Rainbow! I had to go do some paperwork t 02Jul20  Rainbow!  I had to go do some paperwork things at the DMV (Service SA here) and on the way there was a very short-lived cloud burst of rain that hit just as I was going through a roundabout. It was a scary moment because I couldn’t pull over but also couldn’t see.  Once I was parked and walking to the offices, I noticed this lovely rainbow.  A little beauty on a grey day.  #2020pad #rainbow #afterthecloudburst

Some white wine, a packet of smoked salmon, crumbly blue cheese, onions and garlic…  With pasta and some veg.  It all started because the cheese was supposed to be creamy and for using on crispbread. Instead I had to figure out something to cook with it.  If it were summer, a salad would have been the answer.  #cookingforone #cooking #crumblycheese #bluecheese #whitewine #smokedsalmon #garlic #onion
