Tuesday tidbits....

It's after supper on Tuesday evening, and I am getting ready to head out to a stamping party. The last few days seem to have flown by. The weather has been fabulous so I have been cleaning out the garden beds, excited with all of the new growth I am uncovering. One of the neighbors a few doors down seems to have trouble remembering to tie her garbage bags so, as it has been windy the last day or so, my gardens end up full of her crap. We clean it out and then it happens again.

A friend is having a hard time right now with some news recently received and I wish I could do more to help. Sometimes it is enough to sit and listen, but distance makes that hard. E-mailing back and forth when time permits is something but not so personal.

I am heading to Maine on Friday with a few other girls to attend a Mothers of Preschoolers conference, and we decided that we would stay an extra night and rent a cottage on our way home. No need to push ourselves driving late into the night on Saturday!

I am on some drugs for the pain in my wrists, and numbing in my hands, and one of the side effects is sensitivity to the sun. I guess I should have heeded the warning! I look like a lobster. It seems to be strong stuff that can cause stomach ulcers so if I start vomiting up what looks like coffee grounds, I am to go for help. I start with physio on Thursday, and although it's not my knees this time, I'm not sure how I'll handle Jeff fondeling my hands.......

I am in search of the perfect kitchen door. I know what I want but as yet have not found it.

I have finished the book for bookclub already. I did it in two days. I loved it. Girl With a Pearl Earring is a very good read.

I don't know the whole story about your wrists and the cause of the pain, but if it is caused by inflammation there's something you can try.
My dad and I are both taking OPC's. Look this up online. OPC's are super anti-oxidants and are known to reduce inflammation. If you purchase some online, buy it in a powder form that you mix with water. You take it each morning. I buy mine through OptiHealth. It's called OPC Xtra. There are a number of companies that sell it.
I hope you find relief for your pain.
Enjoy your trip to Maine. Sounds like fun!
I've got spring fever too! It is contagious.

Thanks for the book recommendation.

Do you have carpal tunnel syndrome? (I do.)

Enjoy Maine. That sounds like a fantastic getaway! :)
