Feeling Better

I am. Yay! This is part of why dumping syndrome is so hard to deal with – it is very, very easy to mistake it for something else. I was certain that the dumping syndrome was getting out of hand. And I certainly did need to adjust my supplements. But what I really needed was…

Threshing and Winnowing

It seems like there are a million verses in Scripture concerning grain and grain harvest. Okay, there aren’t really a million – but it does come up a lot. As late as the 1950’s no one needed these references explained – they’d seen or done all the jobs mentioned. But in the succeeding generations we…

Dumping Syndrome

Fair warning – this is not for the faint of tummy – or dinner conversation – or polite company. Now you know. And you’re still reading so evidently you want to know more. Okay, the short answer is that dumping syndrome is a side effect of bariatric surgery – stomach stapling (which is no longer…

Then Again, Maybe Not

Feeling just bad enough to not get much done. Or to write coherently. Okay, I grant I don’t write very coherently to begin with but this would be worse – I think. Taking the day off. From writing, anyway. Stop looking at me like that. Seriously, stop it. Oh, wait, that’s my reflection…. Um, I’m…

Off to Bed

Okay, technically, going home to go to bed. Nothing serious – just stress, a colon that hates me, forgot my vitamins and went to bed late. Nothing sleep won’t cure – well, mostly. Later!

Moving Right Along

What got me on friends yesterday was something that happened over the weekend. A friend came by and treated the house professionally for fleas. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that. In other news, kitty bathing continues. Kitties are not amused. Spot was REALLY not amused when his turn came. Stupid fur…

A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

I spent the first twenty-five, give or take, years of my life not having a clue what that rather overly pithy adage meant. I don’t mean I didn’t get the real meaning – I didn’t get it at all. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why a needy friend was necessarily a…

The Parable of the Sower

Matthew Chapter 13, Verses 1 through 23: Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil….

Purdy Pictures

Got lots to talk about but that’s for tomorrow. Today, just pretty pictures…

a really little post

Still no word from unemployment. Golly what a surprise. Still a little under the weather so I’m behind on both my blogs (yes, really gonna finish that novel). Sigh…    

Topic

Topic. Topic? I had a topic! Where the heck did I put my topic?!?!?!? O-kay, so we’ll improvise: How NOT to come up with a Topic! 10) While in the bathroom. No matter how interesting you find toe fungus, human waste or the age old debate about over or under toilet paper rolls, no one…

Crock Pot

I saw a flyer for a program at a local church over a month ago. Free Crock Pot and a $25 gift card for Winn Dixie (the grocery store, not the dog) – heck, yeah, sign me up! I registered as soon as I could and have been counting the days. And dreaming of what…
