Hi Marie. Two busy days and nights. I was hoping the doctior would tell Russ he needs assisted living. NO. Is the fair over? Did you win any cash prizes, I hope so. I do not think Russ will ever be good ebough again to drive. I am stuck.. t is amazing what I can do from the wheel chair.How are things with you? I pray for everyone here. Give my best to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie, in answer to your salt wash query.....
The only salt wash I have used is a salt water glaze that you brush onto the top of the loaf before baking. It's made of a few tea spoons of salt/or sea salt and a small amount of water. It gives a harder crisp crust to the loaf, slightly shiny coating with a slightly salty taste..... It's not overly salty but I don't tend to use it. I usually go for olive oil instead.
Hey sister. Congrats on winning the contest! Such fun. I made the most delicious cauliflower refrigerator pickles with cider vinegar, turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger and garlic. I omitted the salt and don't miss it a bit. Recipe also called for 1/4 cup of sugar and I substituted splenda. Going to do the same thing today with green beans.
Hello Marie. Been in a funk did the Welcomes but did not write as it is the same old same old. I am wondering if I will ever get out of this wheelchair. I have been walking with the walker but the pain goes right to my knees.I used to get out of the car walk around to get walker and go. I hope that will come back. Last night I woke at 12:30 and up the rest of the night. How are you doing? Any more prizes? Give my best to Ed. Take care. HUGS,Reed
Hello Marie. A small set back. My right leg began to ache and my shoulder. Bed rest great. I found out the problem. Using my feet to work the WC I was taking too many long strides. Today I took baby steps pain almost gone. Thank God for A/C, We did not even go in the back yard it was 105.Mornings are not good for Russ so I am pleasxed he does not have to drive me to TOPS.I had a good night. I have found Tylenol is better than the sleeping pills. How are things with you? I hope better. Give my best to Ed. Have a good night. HUGS,Reed
Good afternoon,Marie. I did not have a good night,. My knees ached from working the wheelchair. I did get to Mass. The priest from India going to a church in Jacksonville. Funny...his replacement from IndiA. I could understand him a little better. Russ's legs really swelling. I hope August 11 gets here soon. That is when he sees the heart specialist. We gave beeb saying right along it is his heart. How are you doing? Cooking like mad? Give my best to Ed.We are under a heat advisory. Take care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie, I hope that you are having fun with the preparations for all the contests that you are going to enter with the fair. It sounds like a lot of work but a lot of fun. I think I will try to make some cornbread for dinner tonight. Out of the box of course. We are going to have sausage with onions. I think it will go good together. My garden is really thriving. Something ate my parsley but it grew back. I think I will take the scissors and go harvest some of the herbs. We have plenty of different kinds. Time to go water. It is amazing how rewarding a garden is and it asks for only sun and water. It is quite inspiring.
Hello Marie, Is the Fair going on or not started yet? I hope you win a lot of prizes, U had a great night. Tom left at 6 this morning. Russ is in terrible shape, He cannot walk without mt walker. He forgets the days, He will not go anywhere, I think he would be willing to have someone come in. He is not getting better, I hope the heart doctor August 11 will help. He is very difficult ti with, I think he believes the guy will give him a oace naker. Worrywart. Hot here. A/C on. How is the Lake? Pretty? I hope Ed is doing ok. Tell him to take aby money offered, I cannot get the papers. They throw them against the garage door, I can get to the door but I cannot bend to pick them up. Russ does it wheb he is having a good day. Hope you sleeo tonight. Take good care, HUGS, Reed
Hi Marie, I know that a lot of the people we have for friends are having a hard time now. It is best to keep busy I think. I am going to the VA this afternoon in hopes that they can tell me what is going on. I had an ultrasound and my gall bladder is clear but my liver had some kind of growth in it. I have been feeling poorly but I feel better today. We have had really beautiful weather lately. It stormed yesterday and cooled things off. I am having a lot of fun in the garden but have not gotten to put the feeders out yet. Maybe in autumn. I see a lovely cardinal hanging around but he didn't go diving at my head yet! I think that dragonflies are lovely. All we have in the forest are thin black ones. They have two wings. I would love to draw them. Take care. Ellen
Hello Marie. Another terrible night. Up all night. I think Russ was on my mind, He is in terrible shape. Now he cannot walk, I am so afraid he will fall. I gave him my walker,I wish his heart doctor appointment is not until Aug 11,How are things with you> Did you sleep> When does the Fair start. That will keep you busy. Give my best to Ed. Take care, Hugs,Reed
