Evie set up the coffee pot last night so I could have a cup before I left for work this morning. Sounds normal right? Ha!
This is my first cup of home brewed coffee for almost a year. I had a few café cups of swill but nothing like the taste of a home brew.
I got up, let my dog out, flipped on the coffee pot and staggered to the shower. Had some steaming hot water and homemade lavender glycerin soap while Honey Bear, our Shi-Tzu, watched. Weird damned dog! Lays by the shower until I come out then gets all animated, jumpin’ around and talking dog talk until I come into the living room. Flipped on the scented oil warmer and shortly the Dragon’s Blood drifted through the room. Fixed up a cup with cream and sugar and sat down to chill for a moment.
Just like I used to do so long ago before therapy.
A simple routine just brought a smile to my lips and lightness to my heart! I’m getting well my phriends!
Took a couple of bottles of IBC Root Beer from the fridge and took them with me to work for later. As I left the house I woke evie, gave her a kiss and told her the coffee was ready for her and she pulled herself outta bed. Gave her a big hug and another kiss and left.
On the way in I cranked up ZZ Tops “Fandango” followed by Lonesome George Thorogood’s “I Drink Alone”. Finally I pushed The Dead into the cd player and kicked back, set the cruise control to sixty-five and sailed the fifty miles into the Medical Center. Got GDRadio.net on the lab computer now I'm listening to Jerry singing “Knockin’ On Heavens Door”.
So glad I feel good today!
I have so many of you in my heart, hoping for an end to your pain, suffering and a clear path to your recovery. You pholks have done so much for me and evie and we cannot begin to express our thanks in its fullness. You are a special crew for sure!
The holes in my memory are still there but I’m beginning to fill them in bit by bit. Emailed a field collector in France for a reference for the fossils he has been sending me and he replied with a PDF file of the text he uses, all in French, and I suddenly remembered that I already had it! Sometimes When evie and I are talking I end up pantomiming the idea that I’m trying to get across but the word won’t come. It’s getting better…
Sending my momma a jar of local organic fig preserves today and a few little things to help her along. She is always sending me seeds to plant of cuttings to grow.
Well it’s been fun but I gotta get after my QA & QC for the day and prepare for my first patient.
Wishing all of you peace, love and light!
