Mostly a rather quiet week, hoorray!

Goodafternoon everybody!

We have rain at the moment, nt heavy, but dripping. Possible that in an hour or so it will be dry again.
Temperatures are still not really bad, around 12C, and at times there is some sunshine and then it all looks rather friendly.
Hope this will last for much longer, so that frost and snow stay away as long as possible LOL.

I don;t have too much to tell actually. It was a rather quiet week, and that was so nice to experince again hahaha.
here was only one day, Jan just did a bit too much and he felt that the evening!
I had warned him, but you know, hubbies tend at times not to listen to us.
Okay, next day he took it easy and he felt much better.
He can do little jobs every now and then now, but not for too long. I knw that irritates him, I think he feels a bit useless by it, but he just has to take care of himself after that operation and that takes time.
It will go better slowly, in a few weeks he wil be able to do much moore again.

Did you have a nice Halloween? We don't do anything about it, but I always go out in the evening in the garden to see if my friend Edna's is flying over and wave her a hello and goodbye LOL. This year she flew together with her daughter and that it was nice to see they both had a wonderful time in the air.
Tomorrow my friend Edna will have her birthday! If you have time post her a birthday wish on her blog. She will love that!
I did sent her a little birthdaypresent and card which by wonder arrived at time!
Sometimes the post does a good job too.

Have to go to the kitchen now to look at the meat I have on the gas. It is meat that has to stew for some time to get really tender. It is more a dish for Jan than for me, but that doesn't matter. I try to make different things during the week and once it is more to my taste and the other time more to Jan;s taste. And there are also things, of course, both of us like evenly.
May be there will be meat left over from today and then I think I wil make it into a one-pot thing. I have a bottle gourd, which I can dice up (or part of it), with some paprika, mushroom, onion, put that together in the oven for about 20 minutes, oh, may be even put some potatoes to it) and in the last 5 minutes I can add the meat to it and we have a delicious dinner. It isn;t much work, doesn't take too much time, what do you want more?

Good, that was it for today, hopefully I will have some more to tell about next week.
In the mean time i wish you a wonderful week.

Oh my, I Jan is okay now. It's hard to slow down and learn not to be so active. I got your package in the mail and I'm saving it for tomorrow. It sit's across from me tempting me to open it but I'm being good. Thank you. You are so kind to remember me.
I've just had a really wonderful week with Audrey and now I miss her so. But I will get to see her when I am in Florida. Hopefully, she is planning on spending a week there with me. And when the warm weather comes again, I'll send her a plane ticket and have her come back for another week. So I have that to look forward to.

Your supper sounds delicious. I haven't decided yet what I'll have tonight, but there's plenty to pick from. Now I'm off to read your blog. You and Jan have a wonderful week. Big licks from Pogo, and a big hug from me, Edna B.

Well, last Sunday the 27th was my birthday so I wasn't on the computer very much, just long enough for one game of Klondike Solitaire and my usual battle with the Chinaman living inside my computer at a game of 4 Winds Mahjongg. After 2 tries I finally won so that always makes me happy. My family celebrated my birthday on Saturday. Friends of Granddaughter Bridgit's took me to breakfast at a really nice indoor-outdoor food place. It's the Maple ;(something) which I can't remember the name of. I had a Peanut Butter, Bacon Waffle and it was really great. Then they brought me back home until the evening when Bridgit and I both went to their house for my Birthday Dinner of Meatball soup the Mexican way. It was a nice day.

And I even got a Birthday message from my daughter in Colorado. First time she has spoken to me since February, I think. That made me feel really good. I miss my daughters and only one has the courage to talk to me. But I am pretty strong and I refuse to let it get under my skin so to speak.

Today is starting as a really slow day. I'm not feeling too chipper but maybe just sitting around resting will be a help.
I'm on the Oxygen tank so I'm starting to get it together. Little twitches in the chest remind me that the lungs are "toast" and the Heart has to work harder than ever. I can feel that in the back of the upper torso. Going to lay down again and see if I can get this feeling to go away.

Love and God Bless you from Corrine
