Meh Valentine's Day

Picture of the Day for February 14, 2017. I'm as sick as can be and missing out on the Valentine's Day family party, but at least I am well-accessorized and wearing the appropriate color for the holiday.

Bell's Palsy Update

Picture of the Day for February 13, 2017. I've been taking steroids to accelerate the healing process for my case of Bell's Palsy. It's been working like a charm. I can smile normally and even more important, I don't catch myself drooling!

Flashlight Reading Aid

Picture of the Day for February 12, 2017. Since I'm in between eye surgeries, it's kind of hard to read which is making me nuts. I've tried holding the book up to my nose and at an angle to see the print. Doesn't work. I've trying holding a magnifying glass over the pages. Doesn't work. I finally tried using the super-strength mini-flashlight that my sister gave me for Christmas. Works like a charm! Who would have guessed a flashlight would be a good substitute for reading glasses?

Good-Bye Cora

Picture of the Day for February 11, 2017. My bird Cora lost her mate, Malcolm, a few months ago. I came home from work one day and he was dead as could be on the bottom of the cage. Cora was understandably freaked out and has been one very lonely bird ever since. When she started pulling out her feathers last week, I knew it was time to find her a new home since I didn't want to get a new bird to keep her company. It's kind of hard to have pets when you travel so much. I was always having to haul the birds over to my sister's house when I went away for more than a day. I found a pet shop that was recommended to me that would take Cora. She's a pretty thing, but she and I have never been particularly fond of each other. I have to admit though, I shed a tear or too when I handed her over. Stupid bird for making me cry.

Binge TV

Picture of the Day for February 10, 2017. I don't get to spend an evening binge-watching TV very often. Tonight I started watching that new series Six on the History channel about Navy Seals. It's a very, very, very manly show. The testosterone fairly oozes out of the television!

Astronaut Smackdown

Picture of the Day for February 9, 2017. A friend of mine sent some items to an astronaut to be signed on my behalf. He wrote a chatty letter making some observations about the astronaut's career. The astronaut did NOT take kindly to what were meant as very benign comments. I got a chuckle out of the smackdown.

Super Glue Incident

Picture of the Day for February 8, 2017. Not My Finest Moment #453. Today at work I had an incident with a tube of super glue. Long story... Let's just say that my blouse is glued to my stomach and my skirt.
