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.

19July21 I just love avocados.  I bought a bag of "Awkward Avocados" for cheap that turned out to be some of the nicest I've had this year.  Very creamy and tasty, and a really wide assortment of oddball sizes. Both the small and the large were equally delicious.  #2021pad #avocados
15Jun21  Two galahs eat some seeds that they found near my neighbours parking area. The agapanthus are from our garden - via our other neighbour. Long story. But nice that all 3 of us are enjoying these plants. #2021pad  #galahs #birds #agapanthus #flowers
15Jun21 Smothered Chicken Thighs in gravy with biscuits / scones.  I get hungry for American biscuits and gravy every once in awhile. I picked the scones up from a bakery and used a really nice sauce in a jar for the gravy.  And then of course I had to have an extra biscuit on the side with just butter.  This is part of my 'Foodscape' series for the Challenge Friday group.  #cf21 #scape #2021pad #chickenandbiscuits #scones #biscuits #chicken #smotheredchicken #cooking #cookingforone #instantpot
15Jul21  I have a YELLOW DOT!  Which was the code at the GP's office that I was there for the AstraZeneca jab. This was my 2nd one, so whoo hoo!  As stickers go, it's not very exciting, but felt it was worth a photo for the day.  #2021pad #azjab #vaccinated #selfie
