Wednesday Check In

Old Time, in whose banks we deposit our notes
Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats;
He keeps all his customers still in arrears
By lending them minutes and charging them years.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Good morning everyone.  Sure has been hot and humid around here. It's been so hot here you can fry an egg on the sidewalk.  I've been staying in mostly.  Hate to see the AC bill, but I'd rather sacrifice in another area than suffer.  TodayI have to go out.  Bill time again.  I swear, these months fly by faster and faster.  We'll already be celebrating Lammas on Monday.  I can't even remember Beltane it went by so fast.  And soon it will be time to go back to school.  Have to get over to the college and register next month.

Been working hard on my schoolwork and just finished my project and final for Healing with Whole Foods and sent it in.  Now I wait for my grade.  Just received word on my Dietary Wellness course.  Got an A on that one.  Now I am working on Human Anatomy, not a favorite subject but one that must be done so I figured I'd just get it out of the way.

Still dealing with problems with my mouth.  I have pretty much adjusted to the top, but on the bottom I keep getting sores in one spot so I've been unable to eat anything but soft foods as of yet.  I realize it's not even a full two weeks yet, but I get depressed because I love to cook and love to eat what I cook.  Sometimes I wonder if I will ever have a piece of chicken or a steak again.  They have adjusted it twice, and when I leave the dental office I am feeling good, but by the time the day is over, I'm right back in pain.

This upcoming Sunday eve I am off to see my son in his first off-Broadway play.  I am so proud of him.  He knew what he wanted, and he went after it knowing how tough it was.  I'm so looking forward to it, but also secretly hoping that they don't want to go to a restaurant afterwards.  Don't know what to order if they do. Any suggestions?

Have a good one.


  1. Congrats to your son! May he break a leg, as they say in the theatre. At a restaurant after, I'd go for some kind of pasta dish in sauce if they have it.

  2. Congratulations to your son.
    And yes, pasta, or gnocchi would work. Depends on the type of restaurant I suppose.

  3. Or just specialize in soup . . . Exciting to hear about your son!

  4. Give your mouth time...Soup for Lammas?
