Got up at 8. Yay, me. Showered, ate, got dressed and read email. Friend called and we went shopping then back to her house to play a game on her pc. She was stuck on a level, and things go better when two of you are figuring things out. I took three extra-strength excedrin, but was still having problems walking, and by the time I was ready to come home, I could barely walk. The couch and I had a session, but moving was still very painful when I got up. I have been having dramatically more pain in the past week or so, since the weather changed. I like to think that my body may be miserable and in pain and fatigued, but I am fine. I choose to not be sad or morose or negative just because I am ill.
On another note, I made a lovely salad yesterday from this link:
It was very tasty and refreshing. Caprese is normally made with ripe tomatoes, but the mango was very nice. Oh, and today we lunched at Azteca, a hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant in Attleboro. It is a home-cooking type restaurant, not an “oh, aren’t we a snazzy Mexican restaurant here in New England” type of restaurant, and the food is very good. I had chili rellenos, beans, guacamole salad, and a chicken taco. Lovely.
The tomatoes aren’t looking good so far this year. All the rain has slowed fruit growth in favor of leaf growth, and there is a new disease that is affecting the crops. It is said to be the same that caused the Irish Potato Famine, and is highly contagious. My friend’s plants are very tall, but just starting to fruit, and they are checking regularly for signs of the blight. One person’s great summer weather is another person’s tomato problems. But I am liking the not too sticky too often weather we’ve had.
Does anybody watch Torchwood on BBC America? I don’t actually get BBC America any more, since I downgraded my cable, but they are showing Torchwood On Demand. Lucky me. I like a good sci-fi show, and although this started out a bit hokey, more like the older Doctor Who shows, it has gotten really very good.
Well, the good day is nearly over, I am off to bed shortly.
