Just a lazy weekend...

I'm feeling better today and because I am not taking so many pain meds, my head is a bit clearer too. Hooray! I was starting to feel like a 'drug store junkie'. I need to improve quite a lot before next weekend because my oldest son is taking me out to eat on Saturday and the kids are celebrating my birthday with me on Sunday. My actual birthday is Monday but Sunday is just better for everyone. I have the distinction of being born on Groundhog's Day. I'll let you know if I see my shadow. Oh wait, that's not me, that's the Groundhog. lol.

It's been cold this weekend and I was glad I didn't have to go anywhere. I've just been lazy for the most part. I did set up the crock pot yesterday and filled it with green beans, potatoes, onions, mushrooms and brats. Boy is it good. I've eaten on it twice and my daughter ate a plate full a little while ago when she came to visit for a while. Oh, and I called my neighbor and gave him a plate. It was nice to feed him for a change. I don't cook very much living alone, but I used to be a pretty good cook.

That's about it. Gizmo is sleeping on my printer so I think I will remove her and she and I will watch the news in my recliner for a while. I hope everyone has a good week with fabulous weather.

Hugs, Joyce
