    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    I'm not feeling well today. Not ill...I don't think. I didn't take any Nuprin before bed....thot I was past that. Uh...mebbe not. Woke with very sore/spasm in back. Shooot! Also must have laid on my R hand in the night....cuz it's still painful. Just feeling greatly unsettled and on the edge of grumpy. Don't like being laid up entirely and feeling...helpless. Hmph! Think I'll take our preventative immune booster....in case this is the prelude of a Jeepers-type actual illness. MtRider ...blech and no sunshine to cheer this grey day. Ach, this too shall pass.

    The CAMP Fire

    Oh sheeeeesh, Dogmom. Do be careful of your eyes, lungs, etc. I know that type of sun....have seen that way too many times. Do you have N95 masks? I hate to wear them but if I don't, the results aren't pretty. Any chance of the monsters getting all the way to you? Or.....another one starting? I hate living under wildfire danger. Know where your priority stuff is, dear friend! And the routes outta Dodge! MtRider

    Sheeesh, Jeepers. Besides being ill, you haven't had anyone cooperative today. I'm freeeezing....cuz I fell asleep while on the computer...laying in bed. Brrrr Covered up with more fuzzy blankets. Seem to need a nap before bed. I'm thinking of the ginger, honey, lemon tea....but that would require getting up from my cocoon. MtRider ....unpacked more stuff from being at my folks' and took a walk with dog/DH this evening.

    Good heavens, Jeepers is really struggling with the auto-correct. dog butt? Sometimes the auto correct need not be so pompously thinking IT KNOWS WHAT YOU REALLY WANNA SAY.... Glad to know you're holding on and riding this out. With all the strain we've been under with my folks and all, DH and I are doing some of our preventative things. I finally got reconnected to my daily herbs/vitamins....were left at my folks when I only thot I'd be home a couple days. Then we're also drinking a hot drink with ginger and honey. I cut down on the ginger [whooo..concentrated/hot] and added a bit of fresh lemon juice. Warms you up on a chilly nite. Now I've got all my stuff back home...I gotta put it all away. My back strain is improving a lot each day but still is quite evident. Taking it easy! MtRider

    poverty cooking

    LOL You have to have the 'magic' buttons to get rid of a duplicate post, Kappy. I love those recipes you found. So very simple and with things we might have. And YES. Using pancakes for savory-filled crepes. I make extra pancakes and use them as 'bread' for PB or some such. Pancake batter never holds over so I just finish the batch and cool on metal racks. http://theleftchapter.blogspot.com/2018/03/cooking-is-game-you-can-eat-w-toad-in.html MtRider ....I HAD to go look for scones!

    Awww, poor Jeepers! Hope you're stocked up on soup and Kleenex. Have you heard if any of your family is ill? that you will get over this nasty crud sooooon! Check in with someone so we know you're alright! MtRider

    I could just SEE that...at 3am. Oh my....I hope that makes a lasting impression on CJ! When Koa was just a baby, she got her collar stuck. Laying down on our slatted porch, the dog tag slid betweeen the boards and turned. When she tried to get up, it went tight and of course she didn't think to lay back down. PULLING AND HOW-W-WLING AND CRYING FOR HELP! It's GOT ME!!!! Poor baby. I just took the collar off cuz she wasn't getting near whatever had her pinned. Our critters sure do provide entertainment and aggravation, huh? MtRider

    Very good way to deal with that encounter! .....but also install security cameras if you can. Wise as serpents and innocent/harmless as doves... [Matt 10:16] MtRider .....assume that snow isn't a pic from your current home?

    Whew....feeling ah, better tonite. DH gave me adjustment this morning. I rested and then CAREFULLY did evening chores well before dark. Our temps are supposed to plummet tonite ....possibly below zero. But the CAREFUL moving around seems to have loosened this injury up a bit. MtRider ....still don't want to sneeze

    The CAMP Fire

    The first time it happened here, I ran around trying to FIND all our important paperwork. Now it's in two VERY ACCESSIBLE bags and my "Town" bag/purse....ready to RIP AND RUN. I can literally throw it over the porch railing and grab dog and cat to run down stairs. The first time it happened here, there was a lot of WHEN do I put the animals in? WHEN do I have to pull out of the driveway? I kept in touch with the neighbor who had called me, much nearer to the fire. Never did have to leave but watched mainly for a change in the strong wind that was blowing the fire away from us. The first time it happened here, I got to see just HOW MUCH I could cram into the vehicle and still have room for the cat/dogs. Now we have ways to bring out almost all the animals....given enough time. If these current horses were better trained, we'd plan to lead them along side the vehicle like I would have done with our previous ones. These...we'd let them go with halters [with our cell # written on]. Unless we had helpers with horse trailers. Our area is experienced now and the horse trailer volunteers might arrive in time....or not. Now....when I hear from a phone call about a fire or see it for myself, we've got the systems in place. We would leave when we felt it was time....even driving down the road a way....to see for ourselves. BTDT many times! Neighbors call neighbors. Especially the ones living right above us on the ridge where their view is further. Thankful for them! Know all the ways outta the area. Go before the crowds....and CROWDS GROW QUICKLY! Sadly, this CA fire apparently flared up faster than most. And the ways out do not allow for mass exit. So very sad. A terrifying way to die. MtRider that those around this monster will leave before it's desperate.

    Sunshine and 10* Wow, Annarchy. That IS very cold for your area! Our temps are supposed to drop below zero as a low tonite. THEN we warm back up to 40s/50s. MtRider ....hoping the snow melts nicely.

    People like that are skeeery, Kappy. Many are just loud-mouthed and nothing else. But some, under the impression that they own the world and must grind down others...can be actually dangerous. Sad, tortured souls but....yeah, keep a wary eye out for those. Perhaps some security cameras for "extra eyes"? MtRider ....not much better this morning. I yelped as I sneezed! Nasty!

    You sure found a dilly of a picture, Midnight! Jeepers, glad you had a good, but short visit. Hope you get over the crud before you need a doctor!! We had snow. Not a lot. Just rather persistent. Nonetheless, I didn't get in on much sweeping til I had to go down to feed. I'd planned to walk, actually, cuz my old truck hadn't been started during the 3 wks I'd been gone. DH didn't even THINK of that. He was at work today so I'd be doing evening feeding. But our dear neighbor-friend called to say his snowplow is fixed and he'd come to plow our inches. Light fluffy inches. So I swept my way down stairs and off the truck. Yes, the truck started. Warmed it up and got lotta ice off windshield. Drove it down the hill [forgot to put into 4-wheel and must turn the hubs on the wheels to engage it....so I just crept down hill hoping I wouldn't slide...didn't] . Tied dog out to bark at a quickly retreating coyote. I did ducks and was then using a broom to make wide sweeping motions at the gate to the horse pasture........ Sudden PAIN nearly drove me to my knees! Wha...??? It was a light broom and light, fluffy snow! How did that pop my back...hip...whatever???? I usually don't have trouble with my back. What's with this????? W drove in with snowplow and stopped to see if I was alright...since I was clinging to the fence. I backed into the heavy chain [gate for horse pen] and LEANED into it for a bit. Very low in back...top of pelvic bone. Seemed to ease the pain. If I stood very straight and didn't twist to either side, I was able to walk and lift the hay...couple flakes at a time. Finished with horses and even CAREFULLY walked dog on level road in front of our place. Short walk....kept yelling "GENTLE!!" cuz she does love zipping about when it's snowing. Then she had to greet her friend W.... He finished the driveway and waited to see that I got inside up at the house. Wheeeeew! This hurts! DH...the chiro...gave me instructions over the phone from work to lay on his "SOT blocks" on the floor. They are wedges that use simple gravity to let something sort of clunk back into place. It helped a little. He also said he'd noted that when someone has been using adrenaline for a while, the Sacral -whatever joint often slips out. Yeah....the one that just slipped out on me. Why? What's the connection? He didn't know. Just had noted that pattern in patients over the decades.... I let my folks know their assistant is now REALLY on sick leave. They were sorry for me and assured me that they were doing ok. DH now has more time off and can assist with grocery runs, etc. But I think they'll be ok. MtRider ..... What next?
