Beautiful sunny morning! 25 degrees, but no wind coming my way--so Miss Karma is having a wonderful time on the porch. There are two flies out there!!??

Leah couldn't make it to bring me to the appointment yesterday, but she did come over and did a much better job than I had done of shoveling away the snow from in front of the garage door so I could get the car out. Was terrible stuff--ice and snow. Couldn't push that heavy crusted over stuff using my foot with the shovel--had to lift it--so my bad arm is a bit sore today.
Anyways, made it over to the appointment and they had forgotten to write me down. I was worked in. Didn't take too long, tho. The oral surgeon said all looked like it was healing well. The biopsy showed that it was the slow acting cyst that he thought it was--so shouldn't be any problems. If I notice any swelling or anything unusual--come back. Otherwise--all done, finish all my meds, and just let it heal up. :)
Since the swelling started to go down on Wednesday I have been really feeling better every day. Might feel more like myself by by next week, eh? :):)
I stopped at the bank and the post office on the way home. Leah called as I was leaving the bank--she had come over thinking I would be home already. I told her the car is still not wanting to start right away--getting worse. Instead of 2-3 times it was 4 and 5 times yesterday. I almost thought I was going to end up stranded someplace and she was going to have to come and get me. So--we need to get the car in and checked to see what the problem is. It is just dead--dead--dead--and then will suddenly turn over. May be the starter or something?
Anyways, I got to visit with Leah for a while before she had to get home to make lasagna--hehe! She'll probably make it over for crafts next week--maybe Tuesday. We have some errands we could run one day or the same day, too. :)
I watched Slumdog Millionaire last night! Wonderful movie!
After coming within one question of winning 20 million rupees on the Indian version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" 18-year-old Mumbai "slumdog" Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) is arrested on suspicion of cheating. While in custody, Jamal regales a jaded police inspector (Irfan Khan) with remarkable tales of his life on the streets, as well as the story of Latika (Freida Pinto), the woman he loved and lost. Danny Boyle's film won a Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Picture.
I had no idea what it was about, to be honest. Didn't even know it was based on a story involving the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". Was a fascinating movie! The kids were amazing!
Got my grocery order coming for the month between 12-2pm. Have nine episodes of Oz to watch this weekend. Am hoping to be hit with the restlessness to make something pretty soon--then I'll know I am truly feeling myself--hehe! Have a great weekend!! :):)


  1. It sounds like all is going well after your surgery.

    I haven't seen the movie yet but I've heard it got very good reviews from various sources.

  2. Yup! Better and better every day. :)

    The movie really gives you a glimpse into another culture, too. Was interesting on that level alone--and heartwarming, exciting, and satisfiying. :)


I appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a really great day! :) :)
