is conspiring against me.
My arthritic hip seems to have healed enough to allow me to get out and about again. So I planned to catch the bus this morning and head for the grocery store. Planned, that is, right up to the time I woke up this morning with mild stomach flu type symptoms. Nothing serious, but just enough so I think it might be wise to stay put another day or so.
Time was I would get all mad and upset because of a small set-back like this. Not any more. Things usually happen for a reason. I'm supposed to stay home today. So I will. At least I still have my sense of humor. I chuckled to myself when I browsed the news this morning and read about a stupid criminal in the Twin City area. Seems he burglarized a home, stealing various articles and cash. While there, he used the homeowner's computer to check his Facebook page. And forgot to log off when finished. Which led to his capture. The story is here.
So I think I will go make myself a nice cup of tea. The last time I dehydrated apple slices, I saved all the peelings and dried them, too. Did the same thing with the pulp left over from making and canning cranberry juice last fall. When I run the dried apple peels and cranberry pulp through my little grinder and add a spoonful of honey, it makes for a wonderful soothing tea.
I have tea. I have my Kindle. I have a comfy rocking chair. If the Universe conspires to keep me in the house for another day or so, I might just as well enjoy it!
