Updates and Critiques

Posted on Updated on

I missed the usual weekend update.  To blame? Laziness and sloth I should think.

But it has been a good week, mostly.  Snook had two ‘bad’ days where she couldn’t remember the simplest of tasks, but the rest of the days were better.  And Sunday she forgot that Amber fixed the evening meal, so she started frying up ‘burgers.  I was a little leery of her working at the stove because she was baking when she had her stroke, so we carefully watched her.  Amber was able to prepare dinner Monday because it was a holiday.

I am looking out my window at the ground cover that is mocking me by waving in the gentle breeze of the morning.  Odd how we can instantly go from dry and crunchy to verdant green after soaking rains. So, mowing looms large in my future.  Snook said she thought she could run the mower, but I am not as confident as she is and don’t want to put her on a device that can seriously injure her.

Snooks is going in for an MRI Thursday.  She has a baseline to compare now, and we can see if the damage is continuing or not. Just from carefully watching her, though, I think that the damage has run its course.

The news today is the usual stream of outrage and horror, and I suspect that you are just as confused as I am by it.  So, no further comment.

The new Lord of the Rings is out, but I am not so sure I am up to Hollywood sermonizing right now.  I’ll wait for a few more movie critiques of it before I decide whether to watch it or not.  It sounds like it is another extravaganza to quietly dismiss, however.  The harder they hype something, the more likely it is to be a dud.

And the heat has broken, finally.  This morning it was a pleasant 74° at sunup.  Now that I have a new laptop, I may go back to porch sitting.  I will have to reclaim the porch from the feral cats that have made it their private property, though.  It will be nice to sit out there with my coffee and computer again.  But Chromebook’s have a weird keyboard and I will have to master it before posting anything serious.

The day comes and goes.  The sun rises 15°.  And I must get on with my loafing.

Good morning!

    My fingers are crossed for positive results on your wife’s MRI and her continued improvement.
    Thankfully we had a little rain as well, though I fear its too late to make much of a difference. The temp was 46 last night.

      My fingers are crossed too, but I am thinking it will show that the damage is over, and recovery is to begin …

    I hope the MRI brings you good news for Snookums. ❤️ I think I will stick with the original Lord of the Rings movies. New things are never better 🙂

      I’ll see where Rotten Tomato critiques it … but friends say it is Indiana Jones as an elf …
